Just back from the most wonderful stay in this fun and fantastically quirky cottage. The location is absolutely perfect, the owners a delight to deal with and everything exactly as described. Both our boys (3 and 6) cried at having to leave after 'the best holiday ever'!
We stayed in lighthouse cottage over may bank holiday weekend - it was a fantastic experience! The house is beautifully and comfortably decorated and contains everything you could want during your stay. The layout of the house is great for people who are sharing the space (in our case my wife & I and my older parents and brother) as the layout lends itself well to couples being able to have privacy when wanted and share space when wanted. It's slap, bang in the middle of the old town - so is ideally placed for getting around on foot to either the north or south bay & their is a fantastic italian restaurant at the end of the road (Lanterna). The only slight negative I have is that we found the parking to be difficult, but this is only to be expected seeing as you're staying right in the centre of the old town - it took quite a lot of driving around to find a space, however I'm sure this would more than likely be easier had it not been bank holiday weekend. One other point to note is that the property is over 4 floors and the stairs are very steep and narrow - however both my parents are in their 80's and my brother is disabled and they didn't have too much trouble negotiating them due to the excellent banisters/handrails on both sides meaning there was plenty of support. Overall, it was a great break and you can't ask for a better location or more tastefully decorated place in the whole of Scarborough.
Myself, Hubby and friends have just recently spent 3 nights at this lovely cottage over the Easter Weekend. We honestly couldn't have asked for more as The cottage is so quaint and beautiful. It had everything you could ask for and was really clean, warm and cosy. The beds were so comfortable we all slept so soundly. The bathrooms always had plenty of hot water to accommodate us all having showers on a morning and The fully equipped kitchen had every thing you could need including a dishwasher and washing machine. There are 2 sitting rooms with comfortable sofas, 2 bathrooms and a large dinning room to eat in. You will want for nothing.
I would truly recommend this cottage to anyone and will defiantly stay here again when we return to Scarborough.
Great Easter break Rooms were lovely- even had the kids arguing over who wanted what room! Cottage was in fab location making it a nice get away not having to get in the car once! Throughly recommend.
We loved the layout of the cottage, so much space and excellent accommodation. The 'crows nest' was a fab space for the children, we loved the stairs, made the cottage an interesting stay. High standard in the kitchen and the dinning room was lovely with the court yard to sit in the sun. Super linen and comfy beds,
We have been to the Light House Cottage for a few years now. Location is ideal for the sea front and just a few minutes away is the town centre. A very spacious cottage and well equipped.
We stayed here around the same time and it was spotless. However this time it wasn't as nice. The carpets were stained, bannisters were loose and a bathroom cabinet was difficult to open as the knob needed attention.
