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!"
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.

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.
