“Very homely and relaxing”
Reviewed January 25, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We all liked this house and felt very much at home. Simon was quick to reply to my questions before hand and everything went very smoothly for our arrival. The AGA was on and the heating warmed the house quickly. The facilities were dated, but that was not important because it was all clean and functional. We also felt we didn't need to worry about using everything. With two 3 year olds and two babies that was important. The garden was great, and in summer would be lovely for sitting and playing in. The only worry was that the key was awkward to turn in the lock a couple of times, but we managed OK. I would recommend this house but not if you expect a modern 'boutique' place. Excellent value for money.

Thanks for your favourable review, Judy. I hope you will be able to come back in the summer sometime, and enjoy the garden more.

“Wonderful time.”
Reviewed March 23, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Thank you so much for letting us stay at the Croft, we all had a wonderful time, the house is perfect for a big family with young children, as there is so much space in and out the house for hide and seek. We will hopefully be back again next year.

“Great value”
Reviewed March 3, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

A fantastic house which at the price really can't be knocked. Public space and gardens were huge and suited well to young children, bedrooms while not large, were perfectly serviceable. Beach etc a short drive away and a good local pub basically on the door step.

Your comments are appreciated. I'm pleased that you consider the house to be good value for money.
We are currently widening the lawn at the front, which will mean more space for games, relaxing, etc..

We enjoyed a weekend break here. After reading the reviews I was expecting the worst but the house was fab. Yes it could do with decorating in places but then it wouldn't be so affordable. Lovely gardens in a quiet village with plenty of rooms to escape. Loved the Aga and the house was lovely and warm. WIFI was a bonus. We will definitely be back.

The house has been improved during the past few months, and all recent reviews have been generally speaking favourable, including this one.
It's pleasing that you found the house so to your liking.

“Excellent value for a family gathering”
Reviewed October 21, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I really enjoyed our stay at the croft to celebrate my dad'd 80th birthday. There was plenty of space - large and small lounge areas, big and small dining tables. Only one bathroom plus one en-suite. (Toilet downstairs very poor flush so only used in emergency) Kitchen well equipped (Loads of crockery) and loved cooking on the Aga. Little bit short of baking trays / roasting tins when doing roast for 13 but coped (would take a couple of my own next time) Plenty of pans. As mentioned in other reviews and the information the decor and fittings are not modern but if they were we would probably have been expected to pay 3 or 4 times the price. The Croft was clean and homely and I would expect us to be renting it again as it's very handy for visiting my parents in Scarborough. Village shop very good and less than 10 mins by car to Sea life centre end of Scarborough. Good WiFi was appreciated by all.
