“A charming cottage and a considerate owner”
Reviewed 3 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We had a 3 night stay in half term with our 2 grandchildren. Very near the castle and the harbour. Lovely old House with lots of games and dvds for the children. The house dates back to at least 1721 as illustrated by the deed on display, with beams, old staircases and latch doors.

There were plenty of restaurants to choose from, and Scarborough has lots of history and many things to do for all ages. Examples include the Sea Life Centre, boat trips, we did Regal Lady (excellent value) but there were fishing trips, speed boats wild life cruises and even a pirate ship! Peasholm Park was a delight and close by was the miniature railway and of course both bays.

There was a welcome pack and useful information from Kate, the owner. Lots of help and advice from her but not obtrusive.

“A little gem”
Reviewed 30 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Want a lovely place.A little gem. It is defiantly a home from home ,everything you could want was provided at the cottage. The bedding and towels were of a luxury make ,very clean and well presented. The garden a rare treat in scarborough as was the parking . The cottage was close to wherever you wanted to go ,given a few hilly bits, the beach. Shops and castle were all in reach as were pubs and resturants. Myself and family would recommend this house to any body , as small as it looks form the outside it is very spacious inside, we were three adults a12year old and a 9 year old. Had A very pleasant and relaxing stay .

“Perfect weekend getaway by the seaside”
Reviewed 14 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

My girlfriend and I stayed at Gowland Cottage for a long weekend away at the beginning of March and are already dying to come back. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and has obviously been put together with a great deal of care. The king size bed in the attic bedroom was certainly a welcome sight after our four hour drive through the snow. I could hardly get my girlfriend out of bed the next morning!
When it comes to food, there are plenty of lovely restaurants within walking distance- Cinnamon, the BYOB curry house was a personal favourite- but the kitchen is equipped with everything you need if you prefer to stay in and cook. Blue Lounge is a great place to go for drinks and a bite to eat; it was 2 for 1 cocktails all night - can't go wrong.
In the cottage there is a welcome folder with a whole hoard of suggestions of places to visit in the area, and there is definitely something there for everyone. We intended to visit Goathland (Hogsmeade station from the Harry Potter films!) on the North York Moors Railway and walk down to see the Mallyan Spout, but with the icy weather we had, we decided to stay more local. We're definitely going to try and book to come back to the cottage in the summer and go there.
We loved every minute of our stay at Gowland Cottage and really appreciated how helpful and accommodating the host Kate was with our booking. She really has thought of everything her guests will need during their stay. I would definitely recommend this little gem. Thank you Kate!
