Stayed for 2 nights after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and was very happy with the place.

Located quite near the South...

This is a wonderful place to stay. Nestled under the remains of Scarborough Castle the views are spectacular. Close by is St Mary's Church where the remains of the author Anne Bronte are. Importantly guests are well cared for by John and Janet who also welcome dogs. You will definitely want to go back.
