    “Lovely House, Great Location”
    We (4 adults and 2 children) stayed here for a week at the end of June into July, and had a lovely holiday. The house was very comfortable - enough bedrooms, bathrooms and space for us all to fit in well. There was a nice big table in the kitchen which we used for a jigsaw, as well as for eating the fish and chips from the local chip shop (only a few minutes away), and the kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed for the occasional burst of cooking - mainly breakfast pancakes for ...
    We (4 adults and 2 children) stayed here for a week at the end of June into July, and had a lovely holiday. The house was very comfortable - enough bedrooms, bathrooms and space for us all to fit in well. There was a nice big table in the kitchen which we used for a jigsaw, as well as for eating the fish and chips from the local chip shop (only a few minutes away), and the kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed for the occasional burst of cooking - mainly breakfast pancakes for the kids, or a microwaved meal. The dishwasher was very practical and a good size, and while we only used the washing machine once, it was useful to have. The living room was very comfortable and the TV had a dvd/blu-ray player, and a selection of films - very useful for entertainment in the evenings, although we'd brought some of our own too. The wi-fi (which had a good, strong signal) was particularly appreciated by the children, who are keen minecrafters and like playing online together, and it was also practical for finding out what was on in Scarborough and getting reduced price tickets for the Sea Life Centre. One bedroom has a wall-mounted TV which suited the member of our party who likes watching her soap operas, and since the rest of us aren't keen, she was able to watch in peace while a film was on in the living room; everyone was kept happy. We all found the beds and pillows very comfortable, and the high-quality cotton bed linen was great, as were the towels supplied. We also all loved the shower in the wet room. In short, we were very happy with it, and were extremely comfortable. We very much enjoyed the outside garden area. While the weather wasn't quite good enough for us to sit outside with a G&T every evening, we were able to do so a few times, and it was lovely. The plants are very nice and the gates ensure a real sense of privacy. There was plenty of room for two cars as well, which was a bonus - no trying to remember to put out the parking permits in time. The house is in a lovely location, only 5 minutes walk (if that) from the main road with Sainsbury's, the chip shop, a pizza takeaway, a pub, several cafés, and pretty much everything you need. It's only about ten minutes on foot from the cliff lift down to the Victorian Spa on the South Bay. We bought our weekly passes on the first day and got our money's worth going up and down. It's a daily delight not to have to climb up the stairs to the top! Similarly, it's only about 15 minutes to the main shopping street on foot across the bridge. And of course the children wanted to go to the amusements after dinner; with a cliff lift pass, not a problem. We had a great holiday, and are already in the process of sorting out a week next year. Thanks very much.
