About the Owner

My family and I bought South Wing in February 2008 to use as a holiday home. We enjoy sharing it with guests and it provides a great base to explore the North Yorkshire coast and countryside. My wife is originally from Scarborough and we are regular visitors to this fantastic part of the country. I have three kids who all love staying at South Wing and regularly invite friends up to join them. They have more space here than at home and lots to do right on the doorstep.

Many of our guests are regular visitors who enjoy the welcoming feel of South Wing and the opportunity to spend time with family and friends in a very comfortable and relaxed setting.

I am obviously a little biased but South Wing is a fantastic place to take a break!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This was our third visit to South Wing and we are all looking forward to the next! The house has an understated grandeur that lends itself to celebratory meals in the superb oak panelled Dining Room, chilling out in the snug or all getting together around the grand piano in the Drawing Room. Our family group has numbered up to 12 and the house absorbs us easily.

Despite the cold weather the the house was beautifully warm and the wood-burner was a nice focal point. 10 out of 10 in all categories!!!"



"We stayed here for my parent's 40th Wedding anniversary. We couldn't have picked a better place. It is a beautiful house. On our arrival, we spent about an hour wondering, open mouthed around the lovely rooms. The adults had a wonderful time sitting around the log burning stoves sipping wine, whilst the children amused themselves in the gardens or around this huge home"

Excellent property and location for a family stay.

  • 5 of 5

The property is excellent for a large family to make a base to visit the various resorts and places of interest which are all nearby. The accommodation has everything you need and plenty of space for a large family and is excellent for children. The property is central to the village with good shops and pubs.

A happy place.

  • 5 of 5

We were celebrating my wife's birthday by bringing our two daughters and their families together, without the responsibilities of hosting at home. Twelve in all.

The entrance hall confirms that our hopes for the holiday is bang-on.

As my wife and I venture within there was a warm feeling that the whole wing was going to be just perfect. Quirky and idiosyncratic mixed with comfort and style. Small but adequate Kitchen, the luxury of space in the TV room, Dining room, and entertainment room, not to forget the hall for the younger children.

The garden is really great, a good flat lawn for rounders, and a well maintained terraced shrubbery, while away under the trees there is a nature habitat.

We had a great holiday which was well facilitated by the house.

My only regret was we didn't get to play hide and seek of the adults against the children starting in the dining room and disappearing through the special window that secretly opens out at floor level. We did use it for the barBQ. What a place for a murder mystery weekend.

A beautiful property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a long weekend in this lovely old house. Nine adults and five children aged 8, 2 and three under 2. Although a little chilly when we first arrived the property soon warmed up and for somewhere with such vast rooms was surprisingly cosy. There was room to run around for the little ones without fear of them hurting themselves or damaging anything which was a huge bonus for all of us, and lots of toys and games which were very much appreciated and played with. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and the range oven was perfect for cooking a roast chicken dinner for us all, even having somewhere to warm the plates! The owners very kindly left us a welcome pack of basics such as bacon, bread, milk, butter and wine. The beds were comfortable and had good quality whits bed linen with thick feather duvets. The soft, fluffy white towels and ample bathrooms for everyone were also appreciated. Everywhere was extremely clean. We didn't go out and about much as the weather wasn't brilliant but a trip to Flamborough Head blew the cobwebs away and gave us some dramatic scenery and some sunshine. We will certainly consider using this property again for similar family breaks in the future. The extensive grounds will be ideal for the little ones to play out during the summer and the sun terrace looked very appealing for warm days. Just one little observation, the piano was out of tune but we played it anyway.

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at South Wing to celebrate a 60th birthday, there were 10 adults in our party. The house is VERY large, but very comfortable and warm.We had an exceptional stay there is plenty of room and VERY clean. Filey is a short drive away and anyone that enjoys afternoon teas I would recommend The Lighthouse. Hunmanby village is a 2minute walk where you can find Pubs, Butchers, Post office, Boots the chemist, Chinese takeaway, tea room and a deli. You can walk to Hunmanby gap which is a very nice walk about 2.5 miles.

Hope to return.

Owner's Response: Hi Angela, thank you very much for your lovely review and I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay at South Wing. It really is a great year-round venue with plenty of room indoors and lots to do in the surrounding area. As you will have seen for stay at home days we have provided Sky HD+ with all sports channels, fast internet access, music stations and lots of games and books for all the family. In the immediate area many of our guests take advantage of the pay and play golf and tennis or simply enjoy the large gardens and woods. Good to hear that you found you way to the beach on foot and hopefully the tide was out when you got there as it opens up a 7 mile sweep of sand stretching from Filey Brig to Reighton Sands.

Clare's 40th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home after a weekend of celebrations for my daughter Clare's 40th Birthday.

Fifteen of us in family ranging from 3 years to 67 years.

We all had a wonderful time, the boys really made good use of the garden and played football until dusk every evening, they just didn't want to come in. The weather was kind to us and we adults were also able to enjoy the garden on Saturday afternoon, tea on the terrace - perfect!!!

We all loved the get together in the drawing room every evening, without the intrusion of a television. Several bottles of wine for the adults made it perfect.

We did think when we arrived that the younger members of the family could possibly find the size a bit daunting but we need not have worried they all settled in immediately and really enjoyed the space.

We are all planning a return visit for our next big celebration.

Location

From the Owner

My wife is originally from Scarborough and we have many friends and family in the area. I can pretty much work from anywhere so we tend to spend a lot of time here in the kids holidays. As well as local friends, the things that really appeal are the house itself which is a great place to be based - it's big enough to accommodate us all in comfort without tripping over each other. We spend a lot of time at the beach weather permitting and our kids virtually live in their wetsuits in the summer (the water is cold!). I like cycling and the wolds are perfect for road cycling whilst nearby Dalby Forest is a mountain biker's dream. There's plenty for everyone and if the weather turns against you its the perfect excuse to stay in the house, crank up the log burner and relax.

Facilities

From the Owner

There's lots of benefits to staying at South Wing. If you like to keep fit there is a 9 hole golf course and 4 tennis courts right outside that are available on a pay and play basis. There is also a very well equipped gym which you can join on a weekly basis. The village centre is a two minute walk away and is very well serviced with shops, hairdressers, doctors and dentists plus an excellent fish & chip shop and several good pubs. South Wing is massive, almost 6000 sq ft of space. Despite that it is very comfortable and welcoming and provides plenty of space to be together but also to be apart!
