Large house and gardens

  • 5 of 5

The Garden, location and house is perfect for a holiday. The house is extremely well catered for to a high standard and is very spacious. Beds are comfortable and a very nice lounge and dining space. Parking was ample for 4 cars and plenty of places to eat including takeaway for an evening. Hot tub was huge!

Large Scarborough holiday house, lovely location

  • 4 of 5

We were a family group of 10 adults and stayed here in July. The house was large enough to accommodate our group and the location was within walking distance to the shops, restaurants and beach. It was handy to have different bedroom configurations for our party, however the smallest bedroom on the top floor was a bit crowded for the 2 adults who had to share it. 2 of the rooms did not have any wardrobes and when we asked the owner if there was any way of providing something to hang our clothes on he was very accommodating and managed to provide a mobile hanging rail and over door hanger fairly quickly.

We enjoyed lots of walks from the house down towards the amusements, shops and restaurants and stopped many a time at some of the cafes for a well deserved coffee. It was particularly lovely to be able to do the walks in the early morning before it got busy. There was a lot of information provided in the house for things to do and places to visit. We visited Mother Hubbard's for fish and chips and El Gringos and Ask restaurants, all of which were able to cater for the vegetarian in our family.

All in all it was a very restful holiday in a lovely location and Darren was very prompt with responses to communications about our holiday booking.

Pleasant Property in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 9 from three generations, who stayed for a long celebratory family weekend. The house was ideal for our party with plenty of space, rooms, furniture, and seats plus a lovely enclosed garden with a large hot tub - the added bonus.

The house was clean and comfortable with plenty of facilities and is an ideal location for the south bay of Scarborough just a five minute walk from the seafront above the Spa - the town centre being a pleasant stroll away.

We would definitely stay here again given the same opportunity and must compliment Darren on his communication and help from booking to departure - highly recommended.

Scarborough stay October half term

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely stay in Scarborough. We were a party of 9 plus dog made up of 3 generations of our family. The location is perfect - a short stroll from the Esplanade and the Italian gardens and we all enjoyed Autumn walks to the Clock Cafe (I can recommend the tea and flapjack). We used the lift by a spa a few times to save our legs. There was so much to do that we did not leave Scarborough - we visited Sea Life, and went to the tourist information near the harbour to buy a treasure hunt which kept us amused for hours - the clues took us up to the castle and around the harbour area.

The house was cosy and comfortable and the hot tub was a definite highlight for the children. The enclosed garden was great too. The kitchen was large and well equipped and the hall a good size for us all to congregate ready for going out. We thought that the dining table was great for 8 people but a bit squashed when all 9 of us were there. The bedrooms were quite large - some had wardrobes, some had a chest of drawers. I think that only the top floor double room had both though. The ensuite was modern and it was great to have the extra shower in the mornings.

We ate out at Tuscany Too on Filey Road which was less than 10 minutes walk from the house. The meals were lovely and the complimentary bruschetta was a nice touch.

A lovely stay and Darren's communication with us from booking to leaving was great. We would recommend to others.

What an excellent house, large and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great family holiday enjoyed by all from our 3 year old grand daughter to myself at closer to 70. The house has the welcome feel of a relaxed family home and is so thoughtfully furnished .. no clutter and every thing you would need to make it your temporary home. And what a position ..just walk to the end of the road and drift down the myriad of walkways leading down to the beach .. the Italian gardens, rose gardens etc. Our granddaughter spent the week on the local beach, we also walked the 25 minute route along the shore to the centre of Scarborough. We will definitely return to this holiday home.

Perfect property in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have spent another fabulous week at Holbeck House in Scarborough. A spacious house full of all the mod cons you need for a comfortable holiday and the hot tub is the 'icing in the cake'. We had 8 staying with loads of room to spare. Its the second time we have stayed here and we are looking to book again for next year.

From the Owner

The location is great, on a quite tree lined street with not much passing traffic. Being able to walk out of the door down to a beautiful little beach or walk through the Italian gardens is fantastic. We prefer older properties and this house has plenty of charm with many original features such as the stained glass window and round window at the front of the house. The house is also very large so there is lots of space to have family to stay. Garden is very large with plenty of grass to play football with the children.
