  • "We were impressed by the items provided."

    Electric fan, hairdryer, iron, lots of kitchen equipment etc. Also bottle of wine. Cabin was larger than expected and the view was amazing. James was just a phone call away had we had a problem. Would consider staying again in the future.

  • "Cabin was perfectly sited with a wonderful view out to the sea and of Scarborough Castle to the right."

    In a rural location the cabin is very quiet, and being surrounded by fields and woodland we spent time bird watching as well as watching the changing skies and the sea. The cabin is also in a perfect place for spending time in Whitby and Scarborough - both just a short drive away, we also did some lovely walks at Ravenscar, on the Moors and at Falling Foss. Would recommend as a holiday destination.

  • "Lovely rural location, easy 3(?"

    ) mile drive to Scarborough. A great view of Scarboro' castle, Filey headland and Flamboro' headland from the lounge window (on a clear day!) Very good for 2 staying. Good sized double bedroom for a cabin, with comfy bed. No dishwasher or washing machine, but we never use them anyway on holiday. Small kitchen area perfectly adequate for easy meals. Wifi always worked although a couple of TV channels were not available on Freeview. Access from parking space either the short route up steps or slightly longer round the side up a sloping driveway. Friendly proprietor on site. First time arrival it was a bit tricky to spot the farm track entrance off the main road from South - look out for the red and white 'concealed entrance ahead' warning sign just before. GCH was very capable of keeping us warm when we needed it. Lots of USB power sockets.

  • "Castle View Cabin near Cloughton is a must visit holiday destination."

    My son (22) and I had a 1 week stay there in June 2021. The cabin is actually located on a farm, down a short farm track off the village road. There are some fields used for camping and there is also a holiday cottage on site. I must firstly thank James (the owner) who is second to none as far as I’m concerned when it comes to points of contact for your holiday. James lives in the farm house adjacent to the cabin and is the most friendly and genuine local chap you could wish to meet. He came over and introduced himself when we arrived and said if we needed anything at all just to tap on the farm house door or phone him at any time during our stay. He is full of local knowledge and has a wealth of information on things to see and do and places to visit. The cabin itself is very thoughtfully laid out with a Lounge, a Kitchen, 2 bedrooms (1 double and a single) and a shower room. It has gas fired central heating and also a modern electric fire (I guess real cozy for those winter hols with long dark nights) Obviously we didn’t have cause to use the heating as we holidayed in June but great to see it’s there when required. The good thing we found was the plentiful supply of hot water both in the shower and also for washing up. There is a window in the shower that has a view out over the field towards the wood and is great to gaze out of whilst taking a shower ! The kitchen itself is very well appointed with a full size gas oven and ample crockery and cutlery. There are also all the kitchen utensils you could wish for and more ! In fact it’s the most utensils I have ever seen in a holiday home ever (and we’ve stopped in loads over the years) The beds are very comfortable and both bedrooms come with ample storage for a week away. It is so peaceful to lie back and all you can hear is the wildlife. The dawn chorus sounds amazing and it’s such a beautiful location to wake up in every morning. There is a smart TV in the lounge with access to all Freeview channels and YouTube etc etc. The WiFi connectivity is excellent and was great for us to connect our phones, laptop and iPad. The view from the cabin is a real unique feature and is truly stunning. It looks out over the rolling fields towards the coast and beyond to Scarborough Castle, then Filey Brig and right in the distance you’ll see Flamborough. It’s well worth taking a pair of binoculars. We spent ages looking out to sea and along the coast. The cliffs at Flamborough look especially amazing ! The other thing that looks great out of the window is the wildlife. There are numerous birds of all sizes. We also saw a pair of young foxes playing in the field one evening and the next evening saw a pair of baggers playing. We also saw some deer in the field on a number of occasions. The grounds around the farm are great to explore. Obviously the main farmhouse and associated buildings are out of bounds as these are James’s private areas as is the main yard at the end of the drive. We went on a few walks out from the farm itself as there are public footpaths in most directions. The short walk down to Hayburn Wyke Waterfall is really good to get your bearings and get down to the coast. From here you can also pick up the Cinder Path to Scarborough in one direction and Whitby in the other. It’s a disused railway route and a real easy walk or cycle with wonderful scenery. The other great thing here is you’ve got the Hayburn Wyke Inn to have a cheeky beer or two. We had Evening meal there a couple of times too and the food and beer is excellent. The other pub local to the cabin is The Bryherstones Country Inn and that also serves excellent food and beer. All in all Castle View Cabin is a beautiful place to spend a week away. We found it very competitively priced and was great value too. I’d like to sign off now with a big thank you to James for helping have a most enjoyable holiday. Best Wishes, Mark & Alex - June 2021

  • "The cabin was filthy dirty hadn't been cleaned properly for months cobwebs dust and dirt everywhere the whole place smelled of damp also slugs in the bathroom at night crawling on the sink and loo, the shower was very slow to drain, really not fit to ask people to live in let alone pay to holiday in ."

    ..if it hadn't been our first week before we moved on we would have gone home ..really not acceptable!

    I am sorry to see the feedback you left on Castle View Cabin. I did advise when you arrived if there were any problems to let me know but I never heard anything from you, I would have been over straight away to rectify this. Sorry you did not give me the opportunity to put things right. Property Owner

    You are surrounded by wildlife - a birdwatchers paradise. There are wildflower areas behind the cabin where we were able to watch, quite close up from the cabin, adult goldfinches feeding their juveniles on thistle head seeds. A once in a lifetime experience! James is a charming and friendly host who went out of his way to be helpful.

    Garden furniture was provided for enjoying the brilliant views across to Scarborough Castle and beyond, which in spite of being December when we visited, we were lucky to have some really nice bright and sunny weather, which we made the most of sitting on the bench outside enjoying the lovely views and wildlife. We wouldn't hesitate in spending time at the cabin again in the near future. so peaceful, and ideal to recharge. James, the owner, lives nearby, unfortunately we didn't get to meet him as we were out and about every day exploring the area, but he was very approachable and friendly when we spoke, offering his help if needed.
