Scalby is located just to the north of Scarborough, the well-known holiday resort. A short distance to the north lie the North York Moors. Inland is the spacious wooded area, Dalby Forest, and nearby the beautiful Troutsdale, and Langdale. The Yorkshire Wolds lie further to the south, beyond the Vale of Pickering.
There are many places of interest in the region, including Castle Howard (25 miles), Whitby Abbey (18 miles),
the historic city of York (40 miles). At Pickering (17 miles) you can board the North York Moors Steam Railway, taking you north to Grosmont (Heartbeat country).
For birdwatchers, the cliffs at Bempton offer views of species such as cormorants, puffins and gannets.

“Great for family get together, group of 11”

Reviewed 16 Jun 2016

We had all we needed to be together!. The house was very comfortable. Ok, people have commented that it was dated but I think it has character. The showers weren't great but there's baths and plenty of hot water. Beds comfortable and plenty of bedding. Kitchen is very well equipped. Set in lovely surroundings and lots of bird song enjoyed by us all! Well situated for touring as a base with good pubs nearby for home cooked food.

“perfect base”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2015

This house was ideal for travelling with teenage children as it had space for all of us to spread out. Yes some of it was dated but it was clean and a reasonable price which reflected this. The large garden was a lovely space and it was in a quiet position off the main roads. We loved the aga and the heating kept us toasty warm.

Very pleased that this party enjoyed their stay, and appreciated thet The Croft provides space, comfort, and a great location at a reasonable price.

“A very happy Christmas for three generations!”

Reviewed 1 Jan 2015

There were nine of us including two children. The house was big, warm and comfortable. Lots of seating, plenty pots, pans, etc. Got used to the Aga but thankful for the electric oven as well. Not pristine but that suited us - we felt at home! Mr Dawson responded to our requests prior to our arrival. That was much appreciated. The area is not new to us, so we enjoyed a return visit - nice walks, sands, and lots for the kids to experience.

Nice that the house did not disappoint, and the party enjoyed Xmas at The Croft.

“Great house”

Reviewed 8 Feb 2014

We had a great stay with all bedrooms occupied excluding the attic room. The building was great, a little tired but that was obvious before we went, the lounge provided enough space and seating for all of us.kitchen had all the usual appliances with extra fridge/freezer in conservatory . For a cheap out of season we found it fit the bill very well and would happily return. Did'nt try any of the local pubs village shop had a good range. 10-15 mins drive to Scarborough 20 mins to Whitby great area for cycling into the forests or along the coast railway.

It's good that this party enjoyed their stay at The Croft. As they say, the area is great for getting out and about. I hope they will come again sometime.

“Massive house”
