Certificate of Excellence
A warm Yorkshire welcome to Highgate House our beautiful 250 year old Georgian home. We are so proud to be the owners of this historic property which retains it's original features and where as yet no ghosts have introduced themselves even during our recent major refurbishment. The house is centrally located within 500 yards of the beach and 300 yards of the harbour and town where you will find many pubs, eateries and a lively night life, not forgetting the local population of seagulls! ​Our four rooms are ideal for a Romantic Weekend or a Weekday getaway. Please note there are 23 steps up to the house from the street and there is steep slope from the town.

Beautifully appointed house - you could almost imagine how it would have looked when it was built (Georgian?).
The room (Autumn) was massive and very well fitted out - lovely comfortable big bed and luxurious bathroom.
Breakfast was delicious - so much choice for only four rooms
