  • "The property is well placed for the North Bay, and within yards of the main park."

    Very clean, and fitted out with quality furniture. All bedrooms were en-suite, which was a plus for us. Parking was tight, but we managed to get 5 cars on the front quite easily. The dining room was great and all twelve of us fitted around the table with room to spare. Kitchen is kitted out well but a bit 'cosy' , so no room for two many cooks issues. Could have done with more pint glasses and wine glasses, but on the whole fine. We are a family group that meet up two to three times a year. This was one of the best ones we have had. Thank you for arranging the weather too. Possibly the only negative, was the lack of information, guides etc in the house, but probably a Covid response to move them. We would certainly recommend this property.

  • "A well equipped property in a very good position in Scarborough."

    Facilities were very good, and spacious rooms. Warm and well heated throughout. Only one issue re a shower which we reported. Would certainly recommend for larger family gatherings. Gordon and Ros.

  • "We had 14 people in the property, every room has an en-suite and it never felt like a crowded place with all them people there."

    Great location, short walk to peasholm park or the beach. Great if you have dogs.

  • "This is a lovely property in a good location, having all the rooms en-suite was a real bonus."

    We appreciated the provision of towels and good quality sheets. However, the kitchen is too small for the number of guests. Also having the lounge split across too rooms made it difficult for all of use to be together in the evening.

  • "Beautifully decorated, very clean, beds top spec and comfortable, front door needs sign as it closes on security lock and we left keys inside whilst we unpacked the cars , so locked ourselves out :) (Owner was in Scarborough on that weekend so he came within 15 minutes to help) plenty of car spaces which is a premium, there were 15 of us and not enough wine glasses for our evening meal, but that is not a real issue, plenty of sitting rooms and very well thought out, great kitchen and utility room too."

    Nice outside space although a little bit too cold when we went to sit out. Great location to get in to town and seafront.

  • "A wonderful place with lots of room and all our needs met for a large family stay with a wheelchair user and small children."

    Only issues we had were with the front inner door which we couldn't open with its key and the lack of a bottle opener and corkscrew. Also as the ground floor accessible room is a brilliant selling pint it would be great to get hand rails fitted as this would appeal to groups like us with elderly members who need more help with access.

  • "Our stay was excellent, a family get together after so long apart, 5 children, 3 and under, plus 9 adults."

    The house was perfect for us and the location with parks and beaches so close by was excellent. We even saw dolphins in the bay and were blessed by glorious weather. The front door keys were VERY difficult and stuck regularly, so we would suggest the lock and keys should be checked and possibly replaced In the house all the doors were very squeaky which would not ordinarily be a problem, but when constantly checking on small children they were quite iritating. A cafetiere or similar or coffee machine would have been a nice addition. The above are minor points on what was a very comfortable house and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Everything was fine apart from the bathrooms."

    The shower mats wevery dirty and beyond cleaning. One of the showers had a blocked drain and when used it overflowed. The cord for the light in one bathroom had broken off and the fitting had been glued so the light would not turn off and could not sleep as light filtered into bedroom. Needs instructions for the cooker as it did not get hot enough. However we would all stay here again as all our issues were addressed quickly to our satisfaction. The location is fantastic.

    Some of the bathrooms and shower cubicles very small, if you’re on the larger side can be a problem.

  • "Fabulous house."

    Excellent location. Super handy for Peasholn Park, the beach, cafe, supermarket etc. Great to have a basic kitchen stock of tea bags, salt and sugar etc. House was lovely and warm and welcoming. ONLY negative is lack of recycling facilities.....the bin is for general waste only. We saved ours up to drop at Sainsburys recycling but they've removed the containers so it was a trip home for our bottles and cans and plastic.

  • "Really lovely clean and well equipped property, it seemed recently refurbished with new carpets etc, the double/king rooms vary in size, most are really spacious but a few are a bit of a tight squeeze around the bed, all ensuite though."

    Excellent long dining table and two comfy lounges. The only thing it is lacking really is outdoor space & BBQ, there is a small yard at the back with a washing line and a tiny table & chairs but it is not large enough to accomodate the number of people that the house does. Having said that, it couldn't be much closer to the beautiful Peasholm Park (one of the best parks I've seen, so much to do) and easy walking distance to the beach so outdoor time can be done there. The location really is excellent, it is in North Bay which was beautiful and surprisingly unspolit, very tastefully done with a few shops & cafes and colourful beachuts, but you can easily walk to the shopping centre and to South Bay if you want a taste of the arcades, fairgrounds, boat ride etc

  • "A great holiday home for a large family gathering, with all rooms ensuite."

    Location is quiet and handy for the beach, town and Peasholm Park. As it becomes more used to being a holiday let, rather than a hotel, it will hopefully provide a few more things that we felt were missing... for instance - a bin in each bedroom, a standard sized teapot, a larger sieve, some kitchen scales. We were very pleased to see that the owners left some basics - washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc - to get us started.

For a family day out, Scarborough Beach is just a five minute walk away, where you can spread out across your beach towels during the summer months and top upon that summer tan, or play a variety of beach games before settling down to a delightful picnic.
