  • "The cottage was superb, decor lovely and very well equipped, and parking etc very well organised."

    The location was superb, very short walk to either beach or shops, but very quiet well tended street. My only tiny criticism was all the knives were very blunt. We had to cut everything with the bread knife, but I could see from previous reviews that the owners are very quick to respond to such comments.

    Thanks for the great feedback and the heads up regarding the knives. I'm sure the next guests will appreciate the shiny new knife block. Property Owner

  • "The house could have been cleaner, the radiators were not clean at all, floors were dirty and the washroom was definitely somewhere not suitable to enter never mind to clean your clothes in was not pleasant at all, slugs were inside the house trails were found in the living room again this was not a pleasant experience."

    The shower room could have done with some shelving to put toiletries on etc .

  • "Moorland house has a home away from home feel, - it has everything you need in a modern home, - Amazing location close to beach and Peasholm park, - Perfectly comfortable for a family of 5 and 2 dogs, - Had 2 great, fun, family evenings in using the in-house games selection, - Great outdoor space and BBQ area, allowing a very relaxed outdoor evening."

    - the only tiny critism is that the utility/wash room needs updating to eliminate the musty/damp smell but has a washing machine and tumble dryer which has reduced our home washing, which is always a bonus! We will definitely be booking again.

    A good base to travel and explore the Yorkshire coast. The house had everything we needed. It was clean and tidy and had all we needed. The gifts left by the owners were a lovely touch. Scarborough town and beach were walking distance. We would definitely recommend this house to others.

  • "Ideal location."

    Very well equipped. The internal stairs are steep. There was a welcome stair gate at the foot but we had to be very careful upstairs with our 2year old who wants to explore everywhere. This is only a minor point great holiday.
