Three bedroom cottage in pretty village of Ebberston close to Moors and Coast
About Jo Hardie
Ian and I moved to Cliff House in the pretty village of Ebberston in 2008 from another small village 10 minutes away, with our three children. We consider ourselves very lucky to be able to live in such a beautiful part of Yorkshire. When we are not busy preparing the cottages/welcoming guests etc. we spend most of our free time in the 4 acre grounds and gardens at Cliff House, so are always available for a chat or to offer advice on places to visit or recommend somewhere to eat.
Jo Hardie purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Jo Hardie chose Scarborough
We love this area and could not imagine living anywhere else. We had been looking for a holiday cottage complex for several years, as we were determined that we must be in the ideal location for our guests to be able to visit all the local area has to offer - the coast (Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, Ravenscar), the moors (Flamingoland, North York Moors Railway, Eden Camp) Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall, Dalby Forest and the ancient city of York, all within a 30 minute drive. The location of Cliff House, sitting on the edge of the village of Ebberston, means that we are secluded and peaceful yet easily accessible to local facilities, being a two minute walk to a traditional pub and a bus route into Scarborough.
What makes this Cottage unique
Located 100 yards down a quiet country lane, with private off road parking for each cottage within our secluded, gravelled courtyard, Cliff House Country Cottages, with 4 acres of grounds, is the perfect place to recharge your batteries. After an exhilarating day exploring the delights of one of the most beautiful locations in Yorkshire, relax and enjoy the excellent facilities at Cliff House - the indoor heated swimming pool and the games room. As we live in Cliff House itself, we offer guests a personal welcome and complimentary Yorkshire tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits.

The property was lovely and in a great position. The swimming pool was a bonus.
Thank you for your review of Holly Cottage. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay.
Exceptionally clean and welcoming cottage ideal for exploring North York moors. Two teenage boys loved the swimming pool, games room and walks around the cottage. Did miss not having WiFi as many attractions benefitted from online discounts. Would definately come again

Many thanks for taking the time to write a lovely review.
An ideal place to stay to access the seat Yorkshire coast,, York and the north Yorkshire moors. Property as clean and had everything you need.
Thank you for your review.
We all loved holly cottage and the area in general so lovely and quiet yet only short drives to nearby busier places like Scarborough and Whitby. A very small thing is there is no WIFI which wasn’t really a problem for us but the kids would have liked it for at night when inside the cottage . But we absolutely loved it the pool is brilliant and the games room everywhere was very clean.
Would definitely return thank you very much
Thank you for your review.
Lovely property and gardens, with added bonus of swimming pool
Stayed for a break for my daughter's 18th birthday with grandparents, lovely evening with cosy log fire
Thank you for your review of Holly Cottage. So pleased you enjoyed your stay to celebrate your daughters 18th birthday.
Great pool and superb gardens, although honestly disappointed with the interior of our holiday let. Considering the weekly rate I would not be prepared to book here again.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in Holly Cottage. As you do not specify your concerns re the interior, it is difficult for us to comment. Perhaps the cottage did not suit your requirements as one of the children in your group was disabled and we state clearly on our advert that due to our grade ll listing status we are not suitable for disabled guests. You also arrived in a very large van and were unhappy with the parking provision. If you had asked before your booking was made we would have advised that our parking area is not suitable for large commercial vehicles and suggested that you look for more suitable accommodation elsewhere.. You selected to stay over the August bank holiday week and our prices reflect the facilities we offer, which you made full use of during your stay.
The sandy beaches at Scarborough are a 20 minute drive away. The rugged coastline of Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay are 30 minutes away by car. Flamingo Land theme park and zoo, North Yorkshire Moors Railway and Eden Camp wartime museum all within 15 minute drive. Dalby Forest for keen cyclists, walkers and nature lovers, and Go Ape for the more adventurous, just 3 miles away with direct access from the lane at the side of the cottages.
Cliff House is a one minute walk to a regular bus route (hourly) into Scarborough or Pickering/Helmsley but a car is advisable. How to find us - Cliff House Country Cottages are situated in the village of Ebberston, just off the A170 between Pickering and Scarborough.
