  • "We were delighted to find that this cottage exactly matched the description on the website and easily accommodated our party of 7 adults and 8 children between the ages of 3 and 13."

    A manageable walk to the nearest beach for the little ones and plenty of activities a short drive away for the older ones. We would heartily recommend it.

    Thank you so much for your feedback and for leaving the place so tidy. Would be lovely to welcome you back in the future. Phil and Sam x Property Owner

  • "We had a great week at Seacrest Lodge."

    The directions took us directly to the cottage and the location was great, with just a 30 min walk into Scarborough town centre or front via the coastal path. The facilities were perfect to fit our requirements and we were very grateful for the milk, tea and coffee supplied for our arrival.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay. Place was left very tidy thank you very much. Hopefully see you again in the future Property Owner

  • "We had a great time and the property is ideal for a large party."

    The hot tub is a fab addition and we got plenty of use out of it. Plenty of sitting areas inside and outside for our large party and lots of well equipped bedrooms a couple en-suite. My only criticism was some of the furniture is a little tired and some of the mattresses and bedding could go with replacing. But those are minor considerations and I would definitely use the property again.

    Thank you for your feedback we shall look into that. Be lovely to see you again in the future Property Owner

  • "Great place to stay."

    It was so cosy for our early Xmas get together with all the family. The house was decorated with 3 lovely Christmas trees and we instantly got into the Christmas spirit. The kids enjoyed the Santa express and we had a trip to the fantastic Alpamare waterpark which was brilliant. It was so relaxing and we’d do it all over again. Jackie Garnsey

  • "Seacrest is a wonderful property and we really enjoyed our stay there (13 people)."

    It's in an ideal quiet area and really roomy. It is well equipped and furnished. My great Nieces (7 & 5 year olds) loved the conservatory and claimed that as their room lol. I especially loved the recliners in the lounge, just what was need after a full day out walking. Having the enclosed garden was fantastic for our 3 dogs. The only small thing I would ask to be changed are the mattresses on the bunk beds, which unfortunately were quite uncomfortable and the frame was very creaky. The shower room could also do with some TLC. Thank you Seacrest for a wonderful holiday!

  • "Good walkable distance to the seafront and town centre but not too close for "seaside noise"."

    Massive selling point is parking. Probably the downfalls are the bedding felt quite flimsy and old, could be a better standard for the price. Also the hot tub was a great advantage but felt quite odd being at the front of the house. Just one thing to note is the address sent us to a house down the road.

  • "Great accommodation and location."

    We were a party of 11adults, 4 children, a baby and 2 dogs (Big family!) Ages ranged from 83yrs down to 10 months. The house had plenty of space for us to be all together and to separate out for quieter time. The dinning room accommodated is all with ease. Enclosed garden was great for the dogs and huge garage for bike storage etc. Hot tub was great! Kitchen had all the equipment needed to cook for big numbers and loads of fridge and freezer space.House was clean and well equipped and the owner really helpful. A great week! Highly recommended!!

  • "The house sleeps 20 however, with 12 adults and 3 children it felt just about right."

    The house is very well presented. The reclining sofa's in the living room are perfect after a day out walking. The amount of space for parking was great after years of having to mess around with Permits and ensuring we swap tickets over each morning. We comfortably fit 6 cars within the property and there was easily enough room for 1 or 2 more without blocking anyone else in. Plenty of room in for food and drinks in the 2 fridge freezers and utility room. This is by far the best property we have rented in Scarborough. The only slight issues that we had found was the dial-up level of Internet coming from the WiFi (the owner spoke with BT and apparently the property will have Fibre broadband shortly, unfortunately this didn't happen during our stay), of which the owner was quick to deal with and respond. Communication was great. We have booked to stay again.

  • "This property was ideal for our stay in Scarborough."

    It was a family party and there were 12 adults a baby & 3 dogs. There was a minor problem on arrival which was sorted immediately by the owner. Two of our party were celebrating a special anniversary while we were there so the large dining room was perfect. The whole house has been recently refurbished and is lovely (See the updated photos on the website). There was enough space for everyone, without being on top of each other. The enclosed rear garden was a bonus for the dogs. The kitchen was large and everything to cater for a large party was available. A Nice 20-25 Minute walk into Scarborough Centre via the beach or the Esplanade. Would recommend this property to any family group wanting a get to gather in the Scarborough area.

  • "Before I go into the specifics of this review, I would like to tell you about the group."

    We were a group of 12 people from one family the age group was late twenties to Mid 90s. The surrounding area had a lot to offer and Filey Whitby and York were all in easy reach out the property. The property was the problem. The upstairs had 4 bedrooms and only one had en suit facilities. Every one else had to go downstairs to shower and use the toilet. One of the rooms was basically a cupboard with no window. Downstairs had only en suit room so the rest of the guests had to use the same bathroom toilet and shower facilities. The shower room cubical was very small and so was the sink in that room. The temperature of the showers fluctuated depending on who was flushing the toilet and running a tap. There was a smell coming from the kitchen because the drains and pipe work were blocked. We had to use a plunger to clear the kitchen sink the bathroom sink and the bath. The fact that there were 2 plungers available would suggest that this problem had occurred before. The kitchen equipment was very basic and would not look out of place in your camping gear. Some of the pots were in poor condition with the non stick scraped away and handles melted. The cooker hood just did not work. There was a crack in the wall in the conservatory that let in a draught. Overall the house was in need of a refurbish. We have stayed in many houses before and have NEVER felt the need to complain but this needs to said for the sake of the future tenants, the Owners and Sykes cottages. Had there been a visitors book these issues could have been resolved much earlier than this. We enjoyed our holiday due to the area it’s in and the company NOT DUE TO THE ACCOMMODATION. We would not recommend this house. Unfortunately for Sykes its the first time we have used them as a medium to book a holiday and sadly reflects badly on them too.

The 60” TV was ideal and there were DVDs and books for us to use. Then there was the hot tub which could be used day or night. The driveway is big enough for 6 cars and there’s a double garage too. We would definitely go back.
