    Location great, a short walk to the front. Super cafe/bar 5 mins away called Hideout. Pub food lovely at The Scarborough Arms recommended by the owner. House itself was super! Clean & very welcoming with fresh flowers & wine. The owner will provide extras if its an occasion for your stay. Would rent again.

  • "We had a great weekend in Moorland House."

    It felt very homely, welcoming and had everything we needed for a lovely time away. We have family in Scarborough and they came up to visit us. There was plenty of room to accommodate us all in the kitchen and dining room for a lovely catch up. The courtyard is really nice, unfortunately we didn’t get chance to sit out there because of the weather, but the little out house with the washing machine and dryer in was very handy. We had an issue with the bathroom door in that the handle was quite loose and nearly did come off while someone was in there. I left a note in the visitor’s book about it. The beds were lovely and comfy and the two bathrooms was a godsend with there being six of us. Close to Peasholm Park, town and the beach. Can not fault this house at all. The bottle of wine, cake and milk was a nice touch as well. We would stay here again and would definitely recommend to friends. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

    Thanks so much for the lovely review Jill. We fixed the handle on the bathroom door ready for the next guests. Your party were the perfect guests and would love to have you return. Property Owner

  • "This is our second visit to Moorland House and not our last, we have already rebooked."

    The house is clean, well-equipped and very cosy - home from home. The new tumble dryer is great. So close to North Bay and Peasholm Park certainly not much pavement pounding for the daily dog walks. Not too far to walk into South Bay either. The owner cannot do enough for his guests which is such a change as well as actually taking on board feedback as is apparent from the changes and additions. As a guest that is fantastic. Could not recommend this property and owner more.

    Hi Linda, thanks so much for your lovely review. We work really hard to provide our guests with a great place to stay when visiting scarborough and are thrilled when guests appreciate it. Looking forward to having you here with us again. Property Owner

  • "Moorland House is a clean and very well equipped property."

    The lovely welcome pack of wine, cake and milk was much appreciated. We had no problems parking outside the property each day. The area is surprisingly quiet, and the outside space to the back of the property is very secure, as we took our two dogs. Ideal for exploring Scarborough and the surrounding areas. My only negative was the lights in the living room were too bright to put on in the evening, and so was the lamp, so a softer light would be better to have a choice of lower lighting. We would definitely book Moorland House again.

    Thanks for the heads up regarding the lighting, we've reduced the wattage of the bulbs in the floor lamp, looks a lot better. Hope to see you again soon Property Owner
