Have stayed here many times over the last 15yrs and have never been disappointed. Excellent host Roland. Perfect breakfast every time. Spot on. Perfect location for all amenities in Scarborough. Always a pleasure.

We stayed here for three days in October, in Cornflower Cottage 2. Nice rooms, with everything you need. Two couples with a small child in a cot. 5 Mins from the town centre. Friendly owner and nothing to criticise. Highly recommended!

We have recently stayed in one of the SC cottages. As a Tripadvisor devotee, I did my homework and read up about the place prior to booking. I was aware of some of the feedback regarding the proprietor and the somewhat rigid approach and the "rules and regs" culture which we were likely to encounter. We did wonder about the... More

Stayed here for our wedding anniversary in October 2013 as I wanted something special to surprise my wife and boy did it work. We stayed in the windmill itself and it certainly ticked all the boxes, loved it and wife was VERY happy Roland was an amazing host and very friendly and I look forward to staying again

Stayed for two nights and would definitely stay again. Our room was lovely, the food and service second to none. The Windmill is a little gem and nothing is too much trouble for Roland and his family. Highly recommended 10/10

We spent three nights here earlier this week. It was an interesting place to stay but be sure you know what you will find. Firstly, do not assume that you will be staying in the windmill itself. The majority of accommodation is in rooms attached to the mill. These rooms are very nicely decorated with pictures, knic-knacks, a sofa and... More

Just returned from a refreshing break at this unique Windmill. We stayed in the Madeline suite, actually in the Windmill itself. The accommodation is quality, spottless, and very spacious,on two floors. The proprietors Angela and Roland were fantastic hosts.The breakfast was very good.Agreat variety.My husband had the full english, of which he said was superb.I had the poached eggs,(Perfectly cooked)...

This Bed and Breakfast was clean and the English breakfast was very good, the staff were helpful, friendly and courteous. Parking was very tight. We could have had an equally pleasant stay elsewhere at a much ,more competitive price.
