Ideal location, close to beach and castle area and shops. Lovely view across to marina from the Crows nest (top floor). The spacious accommodation had everything we needed. The beds and pillows were incredibly super comfortable. Accommodation not suitable for very young children due to short spiral stairs. We went with 7 and 5 year old children and they wanted to stay! We were posted a parking permit prior to our arrival which was very helpful. Liaison with the owners was very good.
We recently stayed at the fisherman's cottage in Scarborough and had a great time. There we six adults staying here and we felt like we had plenty of room to spread out. The cottage offers great views of the harbor from two of the bedroom. We enjoyed watching the boats come in and out of the harbor in the mornings before we left for our adventures. For us it was the perfect location because of the close proximity to the harbor, St. Mary's Church, and the Castle. It was an easy walk to all of these places from the cottage.
The cottage was clean and presented well. The bathrooms looked like they had recently been remodeled. The showers had good water pressure with plenty of hot water. The kitchen was stocked with plates, silverware, cups, pans. There is a washer dryer in the kitchen for any of our laundry needs.
My one word of caution is that there are a lot of stairs in the cottage to get to each floor. If you are unstable on your feet they might be hard to go up and down. They seemed to tilt to the one side. For us it was no big deal just part of the character of a hundred year old cottage. Just use caution when going up or down.
The owners of the cottage were always polite and professional in our contacts with them.
We would stay at this location again next time we get the opportunity to visit Scarborough.
This was our 7th Easter in the house and it has become like a second home. We love it, and really appreciated it when the owners contacted us to make sure a booking for 2019 wouldn't clash. That is great customer service and respect for a long term customer, and yes we have already confirmed our 2019 booking!
A lovely cottage. Very clean and well equipped. The location is really good but steep hills to the beach and sea front.
Parking was not a problem even with two cars. We did not use he car throughout our stay as everything we needed was in walking distance,
Only problem we had was the steep stairs within the property. One member of the party has arthritis and the stairs are very narrow and steep.
We stayed here for a long weekend with another couple for our anniversary weekend. The cottage was lovely, well equipped, everything you could possibly need, very clean and very comfortable. Stunning cottage, very quirky with some beautiful features. The views over the bay were stunning both from the lounge window and the bedroom windows, it was so lovely watching the sunrise every morning and watching the little fishing boats go out to sea!! We had everything we could possibly need, right down to playing a game from the good variety in the dining room cupboard, a truly memorable weekend, would definitely stay here again!
The cottage was gorgeous and the views were stunning. It was very easy to get in touch with Caroline and Gwyn, I would definitely recommend!
We stayed for three nights at lighthouse cottage.
It is absolutely amazing little house.
I say little because from outside it does look like a little house off a xmas card.
But inside on four levels it is deceptively huge, easily sleeping 6-7 people with ease.
We simply fell in love with it instantly.
Inside the wood work is great, if your a joiner like me you’ll appreciate this.
The kitchen is a good size too.
It is perfectly located so close enough to the sea, yet far away enough from the noise.
With stunning view of the harbour.
Caroline and Gwynn was great too.
Stayed in contact with email and text on time when they said they would, with enough information to make use of the house very easy.
All in all a delightful place to stay.
