    Had everything we needed ( except lighter for gas hob ,but managed with microwave until we got one ).Comfy bed and hot powerful shower. I would say maybe could do with a deep clean ( cutlery drawer) and radiators a bit dusty. Cushions on sofas could do with replacing as flat making it difficult to get comfy. Overall as expected for rating and had an enjoyable weekend.

    Both myself and my partner were extremely impressed with how clean and comfortable it was. The enclosed garden was great for our dog and the location of the cottage was super - just a short walk from the beach and other attractions. The little touches in this cottage really made us smile on arrival. A jar of dog biscuits and a selection of tea/coffee/ and biscuits for us made for a warm welcome. The towel rail did come off in the bathroom during our stay but it didn't affect us. Absolutely no complaints whatsoever about our stay. We can't wait to stay here again.

  • "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.

    Thank you for your feedback. There are 2 parking spaces available for the property. I suspect you were thinking that the space in front of the house which is slated and has vegetation was for a car? The back garden is adjacent to the property and this is clear in the property write up with Sykes - I am sorry this was a surprise to you. I take on board your point about instructions for the appliances. I will look at making these available. I am always on the end of the phone to help if needed. Property Owner

    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.

    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.

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.

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.
