  • "One of the best cottages we’ve stayed in."

    Very well equipped with lots of extras like tea, coffee, toilet rolls and showergel included. Had comfy seating and lovely bathroom. Garden was well maintained too with good outdoor furniture. Location is excellent, can walk into Scarborough in 30 mins and to other villages ie Burniston along the Cinder Track (2 nice pubs there). Ate twice at Daisy Tea Rooms in Scalby (10 min walk). Highly recommend this property.

  • "Highly recommend this property."

    It is a spacious bungalow situated in a quiet area, close to the village centre and the Cinder Track for "walkies". The attractive garden with a table and chairs is fully enclosed. The owners have put a lot of thought in to ensure quests and their doggy companions are exceptionally well catered for.

  • "The Sanderling is absolutely gorgeous."

    I stayed here with my dad. Beautiful bungalow, everything was spotlessly clean. The garden is beautiful and fully enclosed for dogs. One dog allowed, but I asked permission for a second and the owners very kindly agreed. Tea, coffee, sugar and various yummy treats were left for us as well as doggy treats. The Cinder Track (26 mile walk to Whitby and/or Robins Hood Bay is literally a few houses down the road. Fantastic if you are a walker or a have a bicycle. Couple miles down the road is Peasholme Park and North Bay. The No 10 bus which runs on the hour and every half hr takes you into Scarborough. I cannot recommend this bungalow enough and I will definitely be booking again in the future.

    It was well equipped, clean and warm. The on drive parking was easy, the patio was nice to sit out on and the garden was very pleasant. In terms of location, you could walk into the centre of Scarborough on the cinder track in about 40 minutes and Scalby Mills/ Sea Life Centre was about a 20 minute walk. There was lots to do in the area and we would certainly go back to Sanderling.

    We found the property very comfortable, exceptionally clean and well equipped. The furnishings are a little dated but this is reflected in the photographs so no surprises there and it certainly wouldn’t stop us booking again. Great place to stay with lots of beautiful places to visit. Very nice pub within a 10 min walk. Also received a very helpful email from the owner a couple of days before arrival. One useful addition to the kitchen equipment would be a set of good sharp knives and some bigger wine glasses! Other than that…absolutely perfect!

    Furnished and equipped with quality items, even the walls have original artwork. Open countryside is within yards, and miles of cycling away from traffic is ideal for children and adults. To see and hear Skylarks in February only yards from the cottage was wonderful. The local lanes are almost deserted and worth exploring for stunning scenery. For photographers, Staithes is brilliant - even the cobbled streets shine in the rain. Robin Hoods Bay and Whitby Abbey are also within easy access. We must return to explore south of Scarborough - the puffins on the cliffs and unspoilt/old fashioned Filey.

The property

Nestled on the outskirts of the bustling village of Scalby, close to the seaside town of Scarborough and the North York Moors National Park, is this superb ground-floor bungalow, named Sanderling after the wading bird commonly to be seen on the North Yorkshire Coast.

Inside, it has been renovated to provide a warm and welcoming base for friends and families seeking a seaside escape.

Entering the property, you will be greeted to a hallway where you can leave your coats and boots before entering this contemporary dwelling.

Look forward to relaxing and unwinding in the open-plan living space, with two sofas and an armchair to choose from; curl up with your loved ones and enjoy a family movie night.

There is a convenient dining area to gather for a delicious home-cooked meal over a well-deserved glass of wine, with the enclosed garden as your backdrop.

There is a fitted kitchen which houses all the appliances you could need to rustle up some lovely meals, with plenty of preparation space.

Once the evening draws to a close, retire to one of the two well-presented bedrooms, a double and twin, both of which have plenty of furnishings for storage space.

Delight in the family bathroom with an elegant bath and separate shower, so you can choose how best to prepare for your day.

Take a step out to the enclosed garden area with plenty of seating to enjoy the evening sun with a refreshing beverage.

The property rests on a quiet street outside the village of Scalby, with easy access into the centre for its lovely traditional pubs and restaurants, including The Plough.

A short walk away is the Cinder Track, a disused railway line which is used for cycling and walking.

The seaside town of Scarborough offers a range of tourist attractions that are a must-see, including the historic Scarborough Castle, dating back to the 12th century.

For the sport lovers among you, Scarborough North Cliff Golf Club is a short drive away and is perfect for enjoying a friendly game and exploring the landscaped grounds.

Also, Barons Health and Fitness Centre is less than a mile away.

Scarborough SEA LIFE aquarium is the perfect spot for you and your little ones to discover more about the exotic underwater creatures, whilst Peasholm Park is ideal for long walks with your pet.

A popular choice is always Scarborough Beach, which is ideal for an afternoon sunbathing, swimming, rock pooling or enjoying the beautiful scenery on a cliff top walk.

Return to Sanderling for a relaxing evening with your loved ones in front of the warm gas fire.
