  • "Super holiday home, clean and comfortable."

    Decorated and furnished to a high standard. Comfy beds. Safe, enclosed garden for animals and children. Welcome goodies for humans and the dog were a lovely addition - thankyou. Ideally situated to explore surrounding areas of Scarborough, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay. We enjoyed a day out to Flamborough Head, seeing seals and puffins. Thankyou.

    Hi Sam, thank you for the lovely review. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay in Scarborough. We hope you visit again soon! Property Owner

  • "We had an absolutely delightful stay at this beautiful house."

    From the moment we arrived, the cleanliness and attention to detail were evident. The thoughtful welcome pack, complete with treats for our dogs, added a warm touch to our experience. The cottage is well-equipped with everything needed for a week away, making it a home away from home. The prime location was a highlight, offering convenience and picturesque surroundings. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would highly recommend this charming retreat.

  • "This was more than a home from home!"

    Such a super relaxing place to stay. Great for the adults in our family, our grandson and the family dog. Such a welcoming place - with a very generous welcome tray waiting for us in the kitchen - fresh milk for that drink you're always ready for after a long journey and accompanying goodies plus a tipple for the evening! Plenty of tea, coffee and sugar. All you would need in the extremely well-equipped kitchen from just the right pan to baking foil, condiments and accompaniments and everything you would need to clean up with! There is a super dishwasher and washer/dryer. I didn't want to go home! I hope we get the opportunity to stay at High Mill House again soon. Thank you so much.

  • "We had a lovely comfortable stay, the house was perfect for a family holiday, the beds were really comfortable, the kids all loved having sky movies for the evening."

    My only criticism is that the wheelie bin was overflowing when we arrived and had nowhere to put our rubbish for the whole week, we put the bin out before we left and the owners should of taken the rubbish from before to the tip. We had a baby and needed the bin for the nappies.

  • "Just arrived home after a wonderful week away at this property."

    The location is brilliant, only a 5 minute drive to the beach and local supermarket. The house was more than big enough for 6 adults and 1 child. Each room was lovely and spacious with comfy beds. The only minor cons are that the oven was stuck on one setting so couldn't change the temp and there wasn't any information regarding bins so we just googled when to take it out. The property could have done with a few more cleaning products e.g bin liners which we had to buy. The garden had outdoor seating which was great as we were blessed with lovely weather. Overall, the property was fabulous and I will be recommending to others who want to stay in the area.

  • "Beautiful house, very well equipped kitchen which I appreciated as I did quite a bit of cooking; I especially liked the slow cooker."

    One shortfall was a dishing up spoon type utensil. Had to dish up pasta bolognaise with a wooden spoon which wasn’t ideal. The rest of the house was fab though, really enjoyed the luxury bed.

  • "The book of information was poor hardly any pages at all, no mention of bin day or anything in the general local area."

    Garden chairs would have been nice. But the big problem for us was the oven it seemed to have been programmed for a certain setting and could not be altered, the book was useless in sorting the problem but being 8 people eating differently this was not helpful. The 3rd bedroom the bed slats were not fixed so it was uncomfortable and moved. Apart from that the house was beautiful and very clean. Thank you.

  • "The cottage was lovely and we had no issues really but these things would make it even better."

    1. The bins - we were unsure which bin to put all our recycling in - there were 2 bins outside - 1 for general waste and 1 for garden waste. 2. The TV - it keep saying there was no signal and it took a bit of fiddling with until we used the sky box. You may want to suggest the owners have a basic netflix account? 3. The twin room was the one with the most issues. The way the twin beds were positioned meant that you couldn't open the cupboard door to the wardrobe. This really frustrated my daughter who was sharing with her Grandma. There wasn't a bedside table alongside one of the beds. 4. Somewhere to put toiletries in shower and a toilet roll holder in the en-suite.

  • "Absolutely beautiful property, great location."

    Couldn't fault anything! The little touches made it even more special, such as the fresh pint of milk, fresh orange juice, coffee pods, chocolate for the kids and even dog treats for our dog! We are very grateful for the opportunity to stay in such a lovely home, equipped with more than what we needed! We would definitely 100% return. It was a last minute booking as we had a booking elsewhere which got canceled two nights before leaving so we were extremely lucky to find such a lovely place. Thanks again.

The property

Perched on the outskirts of Scarborough in Scalby, North Yorkshire discover this superb four-bedroom detached dwelling, High Mill House.

Providing characterful and neatly-presented accommodation for families, couples or groups of friends, High Mill House is the perfect base from which to explore this wonderful part of the country.

From the moment you step inside your new home-from-home, be impressed by the extensive living spaces, including an open-plan kitchen/diner which has been decorated to a high-standard with a tiled floor, American-style fridge/freezer, central breakfast bar and a dining booth where you and your loved ones can sit and chat, whilst the allocated chef prepares a delicious home cooked meal.

Entertaining is no problem here, with a dining room that seats eight people and a bright and comfortable sitting room with patio doors opening into the garden.

Set over two floors, there are four bedrooms, with a mix of sumptuous super-king-size, double and twin beds, all with quality bedding and mattresses so you can relax and unwind in style.

If you prefer to spend your evenings alfresco, step out into the enclosed lawned garden, ideal for a refreshing tipple after a day spent exploring the Peak District National Park and a safe place for children to play and let off steam.

If you can tear yourself away, embark on a scenic stroll to two local pubs, serving up hearty fare and beverages to enjoy, as well as a traditional village store and café for all the self-catering essentials.

Keen walkers will appreciate an abundance of trails that can be found close by, both along the Marine Drive and Cleveland Walk, whilst the younger members of your party are guaranteed to be excited by a trip to the popular seaside resort of Scarborough, with its sandy beaches, painted beach huts and donkey rides.

Stroll along the promenade, enjoy the ornamental gardens, or dine in one of the many excellent restaurants to refuel before continuing on to the historic market towns of Whitby or Malton, both offering plenty to see and do.

Alternatively, take a trip on the North York Moors Steam Railway, which puffs its way from Pickering to Grosmont through the spectacular scenery of the heather clad moors.

With both countryside and coast to discover, your first visit to High Mill House will not be your last!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
