It was in a perfect location & because of this we could leave our car at the cottage & explore Scarborough Bay, the town & the surrounding area! The cottage was very well equipped! There was everything we needed in the kitchen for cooking & keeping on top of cleaning! There was a washing machine & dishwasher & a stock of cleaning liquids! There was an iron & the oven was very efficient! Storage was brill in all bedrooms! There were 5 of us in our party & there was more than enough storage & room for all of us! There was even a hairdryer provided! The "all in important" wi-fi worked excellently which kept the two children very happy! The cottage was lovely! Very clean and comfortable! The beds were extremely comfortable & all bedding & soft furnishings were crisp and fresh! The sea views from all windows were stunning - especially from the fourth floor - called the Crows Nest! Caroline & Gwyn - the owners, kept in good contact before our stay & sent us all the vital information that we needed! I wouldn't be being fair if I did not say that the stairs in the property might be a problem for elderly people as they are tight and winding! However, we'd been informed about this from previous reviews & knew what to expect! And they certainly weren't a problem for us! We all loved our stay at this cottage & would not hesitate to use it again! We will definitely be recommending it to our family and friends!
