“Pleasant cottage in a peaceful location.”
Reviewed 2 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The cottage is in a quiet location in a pretty village on the outskirts of Scarborough. There are two pubs nearby, and all the attractions of Scarborough are within very easy reach. The Yorkshire Coast cycle route also runs very close by.

The cottage itself has off street parking and a nice communal garden with picnic tables. Inside, it is furnished simply but nicely. It's small, but doesn't feel cramped. The kitchen has everything you need and no more - for instance there's no room for a dishwasher or even a coffee machine, but there is a little fridge, a decent oven and some cupboard storage space. Upstairs there's a double and a twin bedroom, with some hanging storage on the landing. The bathroom is downstairs, and has a bath with a shower attachment to the taps. This is mounted pretty low, and you'll have to crouch in the bath to use it!

Our only major complaint, an unusual one in this day and age, was that visiting with a teenage daughter, the cottage lacked one vital element - wi-fi. Her face when we broke the news to her was priceless. We managed, of course, but for little extra cost it would've made a big difference.

The chap who showed us around was helpful - when we had a problem with the DVD player I texted him and he was there within five minutes with a replacement.

If you are looking for basic, no frills but comfortable accommodation, then I would definitely recommend this.
