Description from owner

The Croft is a large house set in a lovely half-acre garden. Built in the early 20th. century, it has a large

living-room, with ample seating, T.V., and conservatory off. There is also a sitting-room, with more armchair

seating, music centre, desk and piano, more suitable for quiet relaxation.

There are five bedrooms, including an attic room suitable for young children. The main bedroom is with en-suite

facilities, including W.C., basin and bath with shower attachment.

The house is ideally situated for walkers and cyclists, as for those wishing to enjoy the attractions of the resort of Scarborough . Whitby and York are a short drive away, as are the seaside towns of Filey & Bridlington.

As an older property, The Croft is not ultra-modern, but is spacious and comfortable.

It is of 3-star standard.

The Yorkshire region

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.


There are attractions to suit all ages in the local area. These include the Atlantis Watersplash World, the 12th. century castle, Kinderland adventure playground, plus many amusement arcades on Scarborough foreshore.

At Scalby Mills lies the Sea-Life Centre and Seal Sanctuary .

There are extensive cycle tracks in the area, as well as coastal, forest and countryside walks. For sports enthusiasts, there are two 18-hole golf courses, sea-fishing on the Marine Drive, roller-skating, & sea-surfing.

Scarborough boasts sandy beaches, where you can relax , bathe, even enjoy a donkey ride! There are other lovely beaches at Filey, Bidlington, and Hunmanby Gap.

Picturesque fishing ports such as Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay are to be found along the Yorkshire Heritage Coastline, which is famous for its dinosaur fossils.

“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 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”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2013

It is gratifying that The Croft provided this group with the accommodation they required. Clearly they read the property details before booking, and were not disappointed.
