  • "If the property had been accurately described, we most probably not have booked it."

    It was one of 3 properties in a single small building. The space for off road parking, if that is what it was, was somewhat taken over by vegetation, though there was a reserved parking space. The garden area is not attached to the property which is what we thought from the description. More guidance on using some of the appliances would have been helpful.

  • "Perfectly proportioned cottage and its position makes it easy to explore Scarborough and the surrounding areas both in foot and in the car."

    It is well presented and in a lovely quiet cul de sac. Would be happy to stay again.

  • "Absolutely beautiful little house."

    Clean, comfortable and dog friendly. Cannot wait to come back. We normally come to Scarborough twice a year and if we had not already booked somewhere for this August, we would be back. Hopefully returning March and August 2023.

  • "This was our fifth visit to this property over several years."

    It is a very clean,comfortable and cosy house in a great location ten minutes from the beach with three pubs within ten minutes walk also. Many improvements have been to this property over time, and we will definitely be back again. The only slight negative thing is the uncomfortable settees which seems to be a recurring theme in most reviews, these have been at the property for as long as we have been going and are very tired so could do with being replaced.

  • "We have just had a fantastic week at the Quarterdeck cottage."

    The location couldn’t have been any better. 5 mins walk to beach/Pub/Tesco extra/Waterpark. The cottage was very cosy and warm. It looks like there has been a full refurb to a high standard. The kitchen was well stocked with a new cooker. Upstairs bathroom lovely with a brilliant shower. The bed was very comfortable. Great value for money. We would highly recommend you try this cottage.

  • "Whilst property was clean, tidy, in good location, what let it down was very uncomfortable sofas, when you are all day walking, its nice to sit down and relax, not to end up with back ache from furniture that should have been replaced years ago, also our double bed was two singles put together, also not very comfortable, wifi was hit and miss, and one toilet roll for two adults for one week is ridiculous, we wont be back for sure."

  • "The property was in a quiet part of Scarborough with amenities close buy with a Tesco extra and pub close bye the walk to the beach was about 15 minutes down the side of the water park."

    The only negative was the settee that turned into a bed if required it was very un comfortable to sit on apart from that everything was perfect.

  • "Sofas diabilcally unsafe."

    DEFINATELY A HAZARD bum nearly on the floor. Bathroom not been cleaned upon arrival. Garden no lighting. Solar lighting would be good. No way for dogs to see. . Not next to property. Expected to clea whole house before leaving. Vacum made house smell. Upon arrival strong smell of dog urine. Spent money on joss sticks to stem the smell. Possibly wood floor or lino would help with smell. Soft furnishing need cleaning. Awful smelly....maybe owner to spot check cleaners occasionally. We spend extra to have houses cleaned,yes we clean as we do at home,but think it's a check to do thorough deep clean upon leaving as we didn't find this on arrival. 2nd time we booked expected sofas to been replaced. . Plants front garden should be trimmed so front windows can be opened too give fresh air. Some little snag lists to be repaired plugs small fingers can get in. Taps loose etc. Possibly owners to stay clear for weekend to see how it is for clients.

    Thank you for your feedback on Quarterdeck. I have taken your comments on board and will be making some improvements: - There will be a deep clean of all soft furnishings. - One of the sofas will be replaced. - Vacumn cleaner filters have been replaced. - There are no plants obstructing the opening of the windows - the hydrangea have been in full bloom at the front of the house and will be dead-headed now that they have finished flowering. - Snag list will be created and addressed.

    The location of the property is amazing a quiet area and only 5 mins. walk to the beach. Plenty of pubs/restaurants close by and very near to the water park and Peasholm park. Would certainly recommend a stay at Quaterdeck and ideal for a couple with a dog.

  • "The house is lovely apart from the settees that have both sadly seen better days."

    They both sag tremendously in the middle so much so you need a hand of get yourself up from them. Also the bed is a zip linked and is far too soft you roll into the middle. Sadly I won’t be visiting this accommodation a third time. After my first experience I thought perhaps the owner would change the furniture but alas she hasn’t. So no more for me, pity as I do love to visit Scarborough every year sometimes twice. But not in this accommodation.

    We enjoyed exploring the surrounding areas all within an easy car journey or a walk into Scarborough We would suggest getting your outside light changed as it is not of any use at present, not bright enough. Although you state enclosed garden it is not enclosed to the property for dogs, you have to go with them to the garden although only a few metres away, our dog could also fit under the gap next to the gate. Overall though a lovely stay in a homely environment and would thoroughly recommend. Thanks for the wine and the dog treats on arrival, a thoughtful touch.

    .. lots of noisy floorboards need fixing Microwave in kitchen needs to be sorted as its dangerous, for two reasons almost fulls of the wall just one screw holding it up and the brackets are all wrong,,, 2nd its to high would be very easy to tip hot contenance over oneself Door of bathroom does not fit. Shower hard to use cannot get to the taps without getting into it, awkward when just doing ones hair etc, table under the stairs is very tight, Would suggest a re think down stairs perhaps remove the wall from the kitchin to the living area remove the two old pull out beds and put some 90 degree nice seating there from the side wall under the window to the kitching side, also placing a table there, the heating could go under the stairs...... a small wishing machine dryer could be fitted under a kitchen unit next to the sink,,, Kind Regards

You will feel right at home upon entering, with this accommodation offering a tranquil setting to go about your day in a peaceful location.

The open plan sitting area is a charming place to socialise in the evening, or enjoy a good book on a free afternoon, cosying up in front of the warming fire.

To the back of the room, a well equipped kitchen is complete with all of the necessary essentials, ideal for preparing those home cooked meals before heading back into the lounge to enjoy on the fold out table, amongst the comfortable interior.

Wander up to the next floor, where you will arrive at a bathroom, perfect for getting ready in the morning, or relaxing after an adventure filled day.

This room also comes complete with fitted wardrobes so you can store your belongings and any extras that you bring along.

To enjoy some 'me time' why not spend an afternoon in the garden, reflecting on your adventures, and planning those upcoming journeys.
