We stayed for a week in February half-term with our family of 6 adults and 4 children aged from 8 to 11. The house was very well equipped and comfortable. Everyone enjoyed the pool, especially the children. The lovely, large kitchen with wonderful views of the garden and beyond was a bonus.
The highlight for everyone was Ravenscar, where the children were able to see the many seals at close hand…..but beware, the descent is a bit hairy! We also saw deer on our way up, grazing on the golf course.
Lots of places to visit…Scarborough castle, the Sea life Centre, Robin Hood’s Bay, Whitby. We got fish and chips from Silk’s, delicious…so much so we went back again.
The wine left by the owners was greatly appreciated too. This was all helped by the glorious weather!

Very well equipped and comfortable

A quiet and peaceful location in a beautiful part of the country, Home farm was ideal for our family holiday.

With a variety of walks located within 10 mins driving distance and Scarborough itself only a stones throw away, and of course the best part for the children and indeed us adults, was our daily swim in the spacious indoor heated pool!

I stayed here with my extended family in July this year. We also rented the cottage which was perfect for my 91 year old mother in law.

The house was homely and relaxing and we had a lovely stay. The pool was great! The location is really nice; a quiet street in a beautiful village.

I would highly recommend Home Farm House for a family getaway.

Homely and relaxing – we had a lovely stay

We stayed here last week with our family.. ages from 6 to 91. This is a beautiful house, so well equipped for everyones needs. Beautiful enclosed garden and a pool to die for.

The pool door locks  to the house so this is the best child friendly houses we have been in. Cannot wait to return next year.

Stayed recently (for the second time) to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The whole family (from 11 to much older) loved every minute.

The house is superb with every facility you can think of and the pool is amazing. Super area for walking, cycling and visiting Scarborough for ice cream! Highly recommend this house if you are planning a family event.

Second Visit!

We stayed here in February, it was for my husbands 65th birthday, it was also our daughters 37th birthday while we were there, we had a great time and spent loads of time in the swimming pool.
Home Farm House has everything you could need, games, tv, garden, a fully equipped kitchen, and large swimming pool, approx 3 miles from Scarborough, but most of all it is comfortable, welcoming, modern and very clean. Our party included children and adults, the age range was from 5 to 65, and we all really enjoyed our stay.
I highly recommend Home Farm House, and will probably be returning in the future.
Thanks Melanie (owner) for making it so easy to arrange.

I rented Home Farm House and the adjoining cottage for a birthday celebration with all my family.

The age range of the group was from 2 years old to 76 years old. Everyone had a thoroughly wonderful time and didn’t want to leave. The house and cottage are very cosy and welcoming. A huge dining table allowed all 13 of us to sit and enjoy meals together in the large dining/kitchen. The lovely large indoor swimming pool was used by everyone. The teenagers were in the pool for most of the weekend. The house and cottage were spotless.

We will definitely be back. Thank you Melanie for a memorable weekend in your lovely house.

Very Cosy and Welcoming

A wonderful, well proportioned house/cottage for 3 generations. Large pool which Grandparents enjoyed early morning swims without the kids, while the kids had their own (supervised) time to splash about and not disturb anyone else.

Great Family Holiday

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.
