Holbeck House is a really good place to stay for large families or groups. It is located on a quiet residential street, so you have to be mindful of the neighbours, but we didn't find this a problem at all. It is a good 30 min walk from the property into the town, but that said, it is a pleasant walk, either along the street on the top or down through the gardens onto the sea front. It is a little more challenging on the way back as it is uphill but there are buses and taxis if you need them.
The house itself is very good value for money, having three bedrooms with double beds, and two with twin beds and plenty of room for a travel cot. It has two bathrooms, one with shower and one with shower and bath and a downstairs toilet. The lounge/dining room and kitchen are of a good size too and the kitchen is well stocked. There were 10 of us staying for the weekend and we never felt cramped or on top of each other.
We didn't use the large garden due to the time of year but we did use the hot tub a couple of times.
The house has a large drive which can fit three cars at a push but the on street parking is ample and free.
The only slightly negative point I could make is that it could do with a lick of paint but it is clean and warm and this didn't spoil our stay by any means.
The owner is friendly and helpful, sending a text message afterwards to see if we had enjoyed our stay, a nice touch.
I would definitely recommend to others and I would stay here again if I was travelling in a group.
Very much enjoyed our stay over the bank holiday weekend. Easy check-in and check out system and the house is only 10-15 minutes from the station and the sea front. Ideal number to stay would probably be 8-10 people, and plenty of space for eating in or if it is just a place to sleep for the night. Bonus being the hot tub in the garden. Thoroughly recommended!
A group of us stayed here for our friends birthday and had the most amazing time!! The house was perfect and so lovely, very clean and really big! It had everything we needed and the hot tub was and great!
The house is in a prefect location and within walking distance to the centre of Scarborough with beautiful views along the way.
