Perfectly located, well equipped, beautiful cottage with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at this cottage! 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!

Owner's Response: Michelle and her family were perfect guests. Our property was left spotless. All communication prior to arrival was polite and our questions were quickly responded to. We wouldn't hesitate in welcoming Michelle back at our property.

Lovely seaside town with easy travelling distance to visit surrounding areas.

  • 4 of 5

Dog friendly property is really lovely with character and equipped with everything you’ll need while away from home. Narrow spiral staircase, interesting for the youngsters but might be tricky with mobility issues. Great location to the harbour and seafront and the best fish and chip shop on side street!

Beautiful Views and Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time at our stay in Scarborough. This fisherman's cottage was the perfect location for an easy walk down to the pier, St. Mary's Church, and the Castle. There we six adults staying here at the cottage and we had plenty of room. The bathrooms have been remodeled and are really nice. The showers provided plenty of warm water with good pressure. The views from the bedroom and "crows nest" were amazing. We loved looking out and watching the boats come and go in to harbor.

The house was clean and orderly. The home was quiet and safe. The owners were always helpful and polite in any of our dealings with them. The only word of caution is the stairs going to each floor where interesting but for us it was all part of the adventure. We would stay at this location again on our next trip to Scarborough.

This house is absolutely stunning.

It’s comfortable and the lay out is great for large families too.

Owners made contact as and when they said they would and stayed in contact when needed.

Overall, was a very very nice and affordable place to stay

A little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay at this cottage! Location was absolutely amazing, very close to town and easy to forget about the car and have a good walk around the area.

The sea views were beautiful from the rear of the property!

The cottage, particularly the kitchen, was very well equipped. We had everything we needed and more!

The bedrooms were extremely comfortable, lovely fresh bedding, and lots of storage / hanging space.

There is also a well stocked 'game cupboard', which was fab for our young children.

Caroline & Gwyn, the cottage owners, gave us all the information we needed prior to the trip and kept good contact before and during the stay.

We would definitely recommend a stay here :)
