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.

Thank you to Melanie for all your help and answering my endless questions !!!

Fabulous Christmas

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.

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.

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!
