Stayed here 16 February for 2 nights in one of the adjacent cottages. I can honestly say that our break was fabulous from start to end. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again.

My hubby treated me to a two night stay to celebrate valentines and my birthday. The windmill is a beautiful building well hidden in the middle of town (but surprisingly quiet!) Just 5mins to seafront, restaurants etc. We stayed in 4poster room which was very clean, comfortable and very well presented including complimentary bottle of wine, chocs and toffees. Parking...

This little gem is hidden away in the middle of Scarborough, only 5 minutes from the seafront. The accommodation is fantastic, we stayed in the top part of the Windmill and it was everything that we expected and more. It has fantastic 360 degree views around the private balcony. We were greeted by very friendly staff on our arrival and... More

We had a box of chocolates, sweets and small bottle of wine on arrival. Had a fab nights sleep, bed very comfortable. Breakfast was yummy, could tell that good produce had... More

Decided on a last minute short break and we were not disappointed. Very friendly proprietors and a fresh feel to the place. After talking to the owners it became apparent that the windmill has had a recent change of ownership. Nothing was too much trouble for Dave & Liz and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and freshly baked bread... More

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
