We came to stay here for new year with friends and children and we all really enjoyed it.
It was a perfect house, enough space for everyone and the kids just loved the pool. We had a great new year and would definitely come back.

Our family booked the Cottage for Christmas 2016. What a delight. From the moment we walked in the door, we knew we would love it. Cosy, warm and welcoming are the words best to describe it. Plenty of room, a fantastic kitchen with under floor heating, which leads to a dining area, and through the doors to the swimming pool. It was fab on Christmas Day to be able to go in the pool with my six month old grandson.
The bedrooms are a great size, with plenty of cupboard space. Theres everything there that you could possibly need.
My only negative comment is that we struggled to control the heating, it was very warm in the house, but that's much better than being cold. Thank you to Melanie for all your help and answering my endless questions !!!

Stayed with the family with ages ranging from 2 to 61. The house was wonderful, and the pool a big hit with all. All the rooms were clean and bright. Would highly recommend a stay here.

4 couples stayed in the property, 10th to 13th June 2016. Greeted with two bottles of wine from Melanie, to start the weekend off.
5 good sized bedrooms, with easy access to 2 bathrooms. More than sufficient cooking facilities, very enjoyable swimming pool which was used by the majority of our group. Very friendly village setting, made welcome by locals in the village. Easy access to Scarbrough, Whitby, Thirsk.
Would certainly recommend to friends, for both family and couples vacation.

Stayed the weekend to celebrate my 50th with the family aged from 12 - 62 years old. We all absolutely loved the cottage, the pool was a hit with everyone. The cottage is lovely, the village is lovely and ideally situated to get in to Scarborough.

What a wonderful house - just as advertised - great for an extended family holiday. The Christmas tree was up, mince pies,wine and sweets were waiting for us - a very nice gesture! The swimming pool was well used by young and old! The house facilities were comfortable and spacious and the kitchen well equipped. We would highly recommend this property to anyone thinking of the Scarborough area for a holiday. The Read family.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Home Farm House. Lovely house, with plenty of room for all the family, well maintained with excellent facilities. Great pool which we used everyday. Liked the quiet village location with the added bonus of only being a few miles drive away from the hustle and bustle of Scarborough. Highly recommended.

A perfect venue for our annual family holiday including our children and their husband and wife and four grandchildren. The house was ideal for our needs; extremely well equipped and furnished perfectly to provide comfort without any feeling of having to take particular care - just how we wanted it. All of us loved the swimming pool which was well used every day. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very comfortable and had everything we needed although we did find we needed to allow the hot water to recharge if we all wanted showers at about the same time. Scalby is a lovely village and Scarborough one of the great British resorts. If you have a large family, love Yorkshire and want first class accommodation, this is the place for you. Melanie was extremely helpful all the way through and the two bottles of wine waiting for us were much appreciated. A terrific place.

We rented home farm from Melanie and Nick for a family break away. The family range from 2 to 55 and there was something for everyone. Melanie and Nick even left a welcome card and bottle of wine which was very nice. I would recommend this property to any family wishing to have a great home with a fantastic pool and a great location. The owners are very helpful and for a family of 10 it is a great value holiday home. Thanks again Melanie and Nick. We will definitely book again, the Neary family from Derby

Highly recommended! Beautiful house in a lovely village. There were eight of us staying in all for a family celebration. Very warm and cosy, yet loads of space. The huge kitchen table got lots of use as did the superb pool. Very sad to go home, can't wait for an excuse to book again!

A lovely house, we all really enjoyed our weekend there. (8 adults and 4 small children)
The pool was fantastic and had a lot of use as the weather wasn't that great.
We would recommend this house.

I have just returned from a big family holiday. Our party ranged from grand parents to 4 year old twins (9 people). We all had a wonderful time. The house is clean and warm with plenty of space for us all.
The house has everything you could need, even toys and games for the kids to play with. The pool is great (we had to bribe the kids out!) Scalby itself is beautiful, tea room and pub are definitely worth a visit.
All in all we really enjoyed our time at home farm house and would recommend a stay. (Im currently looking at dates for our next stay)

I have just returned from a fabulous weekend break at home farm house with my husband, 3 children, sister, her husband and children and my parents for my mums 60th birthday.
The house was very clean and homely, set in a lovely location and very we'll equipped. The pool was a massive hit with the kids and big kids and great fun was had by all.
We were lucky and the weather was warm and sunny which made the weekend perfect.
We were made to feel very welcome by the owners and would love to stay again in the future.

My family of 10 and I had a wonderful stay here in April 2013. The weather was not the best but the facilities made up for this as much of our time was spent indoors.
The property was spotless and well maintained. All was exactly as described in the advertisement. The pool was the highlight of the stay, especially for the children who spent hours playing in and out of the water.
I hope to return in the near future and would highly recommend it to anyone for either a short stay or a longer holiday near to Scarborough.
