    Perfect location being so close to the beach but also not far from the town centre. The house had everything we needed. Kitchen was nice & roomy. Loved the big fridge & freezer which was really handy. The living room was a nice comfortable size. Bedrooms comfortable.

  • "Very disappointed in what is my very last holiday due to health."

    We were impressed with the house when we got there but not the horrible yard. Unfortunately things started to go wrong the first night. The back door handle sheared of when we went to lock the door. I reported this immediately to Sykes. The next morning the en suite toilet started pouring water and would not stop. We reported this and we’re offered a full refund on the Monday or we were told the repairs would be done that day. We stayed out with our elderly dog until 10:15 pm to allow the repairs to be done and hopefully get on with our holiday and be able to use the en suite bedroom and the yard for the dog and any washing. We came back and neither of the jobs had been fixed. I contacted Sykes again and was told they would contact the owner again and someone would ring us in the morning as it was getting late. We then had to phone Sykes again and were told because we stayed that night we could only have half of our money back. We only stayed that day as we were told the repairs would definitely be done. I can believe one part might not have turned up but not both. If they had said the repairs will definitely not be done we would have left immediately. We stayed 3 nights constantly chasing these repairs not what you want on your holidays. On another note. The socket by the kettle did not work and one of the windows in the front bedroom seals were broken and the window was all misted up. We also reported this. One last thing if you don’t like cats this is not the cottage for you. The cat deterrent at the front door emits a loud noise that pierces your ears but does not seem to bother all the cats

    Firstly I am glad that you were impressed with the house on arrival, as we work very hand in making sure our properties are of the highest standards so that guests have the most enjoyable holiday they can. I am unclear as to what the issues was with the yard as it is as pictures on Sykes, as well as having a front garden to use if the yard is not to your liking. In regards to the door handle and the toilet, unfortunately things like this happen from time to time, I was only at the house a hour before the guests checked in and non of these issues were present at this time. We did do our upmost to sort these issues as soon as they were reported, however due to needing a specialist part for the door and struggling to get a plumber who had any availability the jobs did go into the next day. I advised Sykes of this and they passed on the information as well as an apology. A full refund was offered from the Saturday that the guests checked in until the Monday afternoon, as they were still there on Tuesday I felt that it was fair to offer a 50% refund out of good will. Now that the socket has been reported, it has been fixed, and a new window has been ordered, again we were not aware of this issue. The cat deterrent is there to make sure that the local cats do not do their business in the front garden and it only comes on when the sensor is triggered. We work hard with the 3 house we have on Sykes, but from time to time things outside of our control happen. We will always try and work with customers to try and address any issues a soon as we can, but somethings are outside of our control or area of expertise. I am sorry that the holiday was not enjoyed and the guests decided to leave half way through with half of their money that they originally paid. Property Owner

    Literally a stones throw from the high street and the beach, there are loads of pubs nearby and the beautiful st Mary's church. House is clean with all needed amenities provided. We hope to book again in future, the kids loved it.

  • "Couldn’t open front room windows."

    The smell as you walk in is vile of cat pooh where cats had been going toilet right under the window by the front door the back garden bin and floor was covered in maggots we took pictures one night when it rained it was like something from a horror movie you couldn’t see the floor for maggots.the recycling bin was already full to the brim when we got there,the sofa and carpet was so grubby we had to hoover all under the cushions when we got there the windows were so dirty too and lastly the shower was either scolding hot or freezing was so much effort to get it to stay warm. Only positive I have is the location of the property and safe to say we left it a lot cleaner than when we arrived

    Dear guest, I am so disappointed to read your review as we pride ourselves on providing guests with the best possible stay and holiday. I only wish you would have contacted us or Sykes on your arrival as there was no contact made at all, so that we could have dealt with any issues immediately had there been any. In response to your review we have been and checked on the issues highlighted: * The bins - if you found these to be full they have now both been cleaned and emptied and we will politely encourage future guests to put the wheely bins out for collection. * Cats – to discourage cats from visiting our front garden we have put down new slate and cat repellent. * Cleanliness – I find this comment about our house really disappointing. We cleaned the house ourselves on this occasion and are certain it was spotless. We are really happy with the high standards we maintain, having always had positive feedback in our guest book regarding cleanliness. I really wish you had contacted us on your arrival so that we could have dealt with any issues. We value our guests greatly and take on board any feedback. I do hope this does not stop future bookings of our properties for yourselves and other guests. Owner of Butter cross Property Owner

The property

Perched in the heart of the bustling town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire, is this well-presented, semi-detached cottage, Butter Cross.

Enjoying a central location with access to three beautiful beaches and the stunning North York Moors National Park, Butter Cross is a wonderful base for a group or family of six.

Step directly into the living/dining room, where you can spend evenings catching up on your favourite TV shows.

Move into the kitchen and rustle up a feast utilising a range of appliances, including an electric oven, ceramic hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and even a washing machine, so there’s no need to pack your whole wardrobe!

Take the evening outside to the enclosed courtyard, complete with a picnic bench suitable for alfresco dining.

As you while away the hours, look to catch some rest in the bedrooms, offering two kings, one with en-suite basin and WC, and a bunk room which is ideal for children.

Start the morning with a quick wash in the ground-floor shower room before heading into the town centre in search for breakfast goodies.

Pack up your beach bag and towels and head for the golden sands of the North Bay Beach or Scarborough Beach, where you can build sandcastles with the little ones or test your hand at some watersports, including kayaking and surfing.

On your way back home, pick up some traditional fish and chips or stop off at a local pub for some traditional grub.

Those looking to get their steps in can join the scenic Cleveland Way, offering the very best scenery of the North York Moors and Coast for over a 100 miles, or for a more gentle route, take on the 21.7 mile Cinder Track to Whitby?

For family days out, the picturesque town of Filey is home to the Filey Bird Garden and Animal Park, home to a range of exotic birds and animals, as well as the scenic Filey Brigg where you can walk along pure sandstone and limestone and take in the panoramic ocean views.

With plenty to fill your holiday itinerary, consider Butter Cross for your next North Yorkshire escape.
