  • "Excellent property that has that special feel to it."

    You can feel the history of it when on the ground floor. Scarborough is always on our list of "go to" UK breaks and this cottage has now become first choice for any future stays we plan. Outstanding communication from the host pre, during and post stay. Location is just perfect for a memorable stay. Eateries and hostelries are all within walking distance , as is the beach and seafront arcades etc. Everything you could need for a home from home is provided in every room of the cottage. Heating system is fantastic and keeps the whole property very comfortable indeed. In short-if you are planning a Scarborough holiday make this property top of your list. It is that good.

  • "This is our second recent stay in Hooks House ."

    It’s a quirky little bolt hole with a sense of Scarborough’s history in its walls. Modern touches, warm and comfortable and perfectly positioned for all the delights Scarborough offers. Lovely sea views and watching the sun rise over the bay every morning restores the soul.

  • "Lovely , cosy cottage in beautiful Scarborough, close to the harbour, castle and beach and seafront."

    Quirky but with comfortable modern touches , splendid views across the sea as far as Bempton Cliffs and sight of the sunrise over the sea. Parking nearby with permits provided, park up and no need to move the car as everything in easy walking distance.

  • "The property is immaculately decorated and furnished."

    We found everything to be perfectly clean and the beds were really comfortable, so a good night's sleep was assured! The views across the harbour from the top floor bedroom were lovely. Scarborough has plenty to do and Hooks house is ideally situated to enjoy the features of both the splendid seafronts and the town centre, most of which are an easy walk away. Accessing the A2 zone parking provided was difficult (we stayed in high season), sometimes needing a 5 minute walk or so from the property, but there is so much to do in Scarborough without the car it wasn't an issue for us. We visited York, using their excellent Park and Ride service, Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay and Pickering, all of which made very enjoyable days out. More locally, the "Stumble Inn" was well worth the 1.2km climb up the hill to just past the station on the right. A small extremely friendly pub, out of the centre, with an excellent range of beer and cider. Don't expect a vista or armchairs. The bonus is that it's downhill going home;0) stumbleinnmicropub.weebly.com/home.html The pub right next door, Wilson's, has just been redecorated and is comfortable. A good range of real ales but not so many ciders. Great for right next door.

    When we weren't out enjoying what Scarborough had to offer, we were very happy to spend time in the house relaxing as it really felt like a 'home from home'.

The property

Resting at the heart of the vibrant town of Scarborough, you will find the charismatic dwelling of Hook's House.

Situated over four floors, this quirky yet traditional cottage makes a fantastic base for couples or groups of four who seek a relaxing retreat to the seaside.

Climb the three external steps up to the bright blue front door and step into to the warmth of the sitting room from the attractive cobbled streets.

Take a seat on the stylish grey bench as you remove your coat and shoes, before making yourself at home on the plush corner sofa whilst catching up on your favourite box set on the Smart TV.

Feel the character of the exposed beams that line the ceilings as you begin to make your way into the basement, where you will be greeted by a striking original fireplace and welcomed into a lovely and well-equipped kitchen housing all of the essentials needed for a long break by the seaside.

Prepare a hearty home-cooked dinner on the electric hob for the whole family to feast upon as they gather at the sociable dining space, mapping out plans for the fun-filled days that lie ahead.

Venture back up to the ground-floor and discover a traditional steep and winding staircase leading on to the first floor, home to both an airy shower room and a delightfully decorated king size bedroom boasting views of the nearby sea.

Take your time to get ready for an entertaining evening out on the town as you indulge in a rejuvenating cleanse in the shower, before heading up to second floor to select an outfit from the storage provided within the spacious second king size bedroom, where guests can take a seat at the charming little table and gaze out of the pretty window admiring the unrivalled views of the sea.

Make the most of this idyllic location, just a minutes walk from the seafront, with an evening spent wining and dining in some of the finest restaurants and bars in the area.

A trip to Scarborough would not be complete without a relaxing stroll along South Bay Beach whilst tucking into a mouth-watering portion of fish and chips from the local take out, before heading off to explore the medieval ruins of Scarborough Castle.

See some of your favourite artists and bands at the imposing Scarborough Open Air Theatre or dare to face the horrors that lie within the famous Terror Tower.

Book Hook's House for a memorable stay by the seaside.
