About Darren Wordsworth

Father of two boys aged 5 and 8 and lived in Scarborough for many years. We bought the property in 2009 and have put a lot of time and effort in renovating to a good standard.

Darren Wordsworth purchased this house in 2009

Why Darren Wordsworth chose Scarborough

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.

Third time we have stayed here

  • 5 of 5

Always enjoy staying at this house and we love what Scarborough has to offer. The location of the house is perfect for us with lots of nice costal walks close by and the main South Bay beach is not far of a walk either.

House itself is big with plenty of character and fully equipped even for when you have young twins in tow.

Have recommended the house to friends and family over the years and will definitely return in future!

Good location, plenty of parking. Very tired in need of TLC.

  • 2 of 5

Very disappointed hot tub wasn't working - had particularly booked a property with one as celebrating family birthday.

Appearance from the front and porch need attention.

Cleaning needs to be reviewed - blood on pillow, no bin liners, rubbish down sides of cushions on settee.

Not enough towels, no bins in bedrooms for rubbish.

Wouldn't recommend to anyone in state it is in.

Owner's Response: Hi Liz, thanks for taking time to review the house, we are obviously disappointed that it is a bad review. We did not deliberately break the hottub for your arrival and we did everything we could to repair it so you could use it. The hottub maintenance company was at the house the same day you told us it had stopped heating up. They could not solve the problem so we called the manufacturer but they could not get to the house until after you had left and when they did get there the hottub was working perfectly which was very annoying! We know you were very upset about not having full use of the hottub and this is why we refunded you some money to try and compensate for this (you didn't mention this in your review). After speaking to you after your stay I went to the house myself as we were concerned you were not happy with your stay. I addressed the issues you raised with the cleaner and she is now checking down the side of the sofa and making sure there are bin liners at the house for guests to use. Also cleaning the entrance and checking all cushions and bedding. We provide 10 bath towels, hand towels in all bathrooms/toilet/kitchen plus plenty of teatowels which should be sufficient. There is a washing machine if you need to wash the towels during your stay. Thank you.

A friendly comfortable family home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family holiday in this comfortable home perfectly located for the South Beach and our beach chalet. The hot tub is a great bonus 😀? We are ex Scarborough residents who visit family regularly but this was our summer trip to bring our grandchildren to visit Great Grandma and the house was perfect for all of us. This house had added sentimental value for my sister and I who lived in the twin of it further down the street in the 1960's!! We would recommend it for any family.

Stayed here for a friend's birthday and had an amazing time.

The house is absolutely lovely, very spacious but cosy.

It's a great distance to the sea front and is a lovely walk.

The house and location was just so perfect and Darren the owner was great with quick communication.

We had a really great time and will definitely stay again in the future.

Thanks so much

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!
