Wonderful home made produce; impeccably served, whilst we relaxed for the afternoon in the conservatory area with our dog. John's recommendation of a local 'dog friendly' pub that evening proved an ideal choice for real ale, super food and...

Stayed for 2 nights after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and was very happy with the place.

Located quite near the South...

It is high up, between the North & South bays, I have mobility issues but managed to get around ok. We stayed in room 5, which was a good size with patio...

This is a wonderful place to stay. Nestled under the remains of Scarborough Castle the views are spectacular. Close by is St Mary's Church where the remains of the author Anne Bronte are. Importantly guests are well cared for by John and Janet who also welcome dogs. You will definitely want to go back.
