  • "The house was worth staying at would stay there again"

  • "A clean well kept property which was a delight to stay in."

    The welcome pack was much appreciated.

  • "We had a really good time at the Firs."

    The property is very well located to explore the area, whether by car, walking and by bus. We especially enjoyed the windfall apples in the garden and to have our breakfast out in the terrace - we were very lucky with the weather! The house is in a quiet location so we had a very restful time. Our pet who is very old and sensitive to change settled very well in the house and this was a real bonus. Unfortunately we couldn't get the washing machine to work and the dish washer was out of rinser so couldn't be used. Perhaps the owners could look into this in between customers? We really appreciated the local milk and we went back for more as it was so delicious. We plan to be back as we loved out time at the Firs.

    Less than half hour walk into Scarborough over the headland, and a short walk into beautiful Scalby Village.

  • "This home is absolutely beautiful."

    I have only good things to say about our stay here. The home is warm, comfortable and inviting. The owners left, milk, cake, tea, coffee and biscuits. It was so kind of them to do that. The location is wonderful and so peaceful. The garden is gorgeous and the house is literally minutes from the North Bay of Scarborough, which is stunning. We had a wonderful time here and would definitely return.

  • "The house met all expectations and the photos didn’t do it justice."

    It is a very comfortable house with everything you could need for a stay. Everywhere was clean and gave us no concerns whatsoever. The garden was ideal for our dog to wander around, and access rot Scarborough and the general area was very easy. Would stay again if we visit the area

  • "We’ve enjoyed a great family break at The Firs."

    The holiday home is clean, comfortable and well equipped, with everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The house is in a great position to enjoy costal walks along the Cleveland Way and into Scarborough. We’d highly recommend staying in this lovely home and hope to visit again soon.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Me, my partner and 6 year old son had a lovely holiday stay at the Firs."

    The house was bright, extremely clean and had everything you would ever need for a stress free stay. From the amazingly comfy beds to the spacious open plan kitchen/diner everything was perfect. The house is in a great location. Just a steady costal walk to Scarborough sea front, easily managed by my 6yo, and even closer to Scalby village with a lovely village pub and shops. I cannot recommend The Firs enough and will definitely be booking to stay again. Thank you.

    Really appreciate your feedback, glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again. Thank you. Property Owner

The property

Settled in the quaint village of Scalby, near the bustling amenities of Scarborough, rests this semi-detached holiday home, The Firs.

Just under two miles away from a sandy beach, this welcoming abode is ideal for a family of five and their canine companion.

Admire the stone cottages that are scattered around the village before you reach your home-from-home, with a large driveway for ample parking.

Enter through the side of the property into the utility room, here you can wash and dry your sandy clothes after a day lounging on the beach.

Be charmed by the country-style kitchen/diner, hosting an electric range cooker and gas hob to rustle up hearty meals and a dishwasher for a fuss-free clean.

When the dishes are piping hot, serve them at the dining table, where you can dine together and toast to a splendid getaway.

Throw open the French doors to discover the large lawn and when the sun is shining enjoy an alfresco affair on the garden furniture!

Moving through the property, locate the sitting room, where you can snuggle up beside the crackling open-fire and flicker through the Smart TV.

Adjacent, you will find the games room to keep the young ones entertained, with a Smart TV and bean bags for a fun film night, away from the adults.

As the night draws in, climb upstairs and why not indulge in a leisurely soak in the bathroom or if you're still sandy, enjoy a rinse in the overhead shower.

When eyes grow heavy, there is a king-size, a twin and a single to rest your head; all with fantastic storage to house your belongings.

Awaken with a steaming cup of coffee, courtesy of the coffee maker, to soak in the views from the rear garden before exploring your scenic surroundings.

Be sure to bring your bike to tour the National Cycle Route 1 and pack your bucket and spades to take advantage of the Blue Flag beach, North Bay Beach.

A short car journey will lead you to the seaside resort of Scarborough, where you can test your swing on a cliff top golf course or have some family fun at Crazy Golf.

Spend an afternoon seeing a range of marine life at SEA LIFE, unveil 3000 years of history at Scarborough Castle or enjoy fresh fish and chips on the beachfront.

Why not head to Whitby, home to the 7th-century Whitby Abbey, the unique Captain Cook Memorial Museum and the little ones can enjoy donkey rides along the beach?

For long-lasting memories, whisk your loved ones to The Firs.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
