... Club for a look. It is built high on a hill beside the sea and is where John played cricket for 40 odd years. Had a great lunch in a Pub in Brid and then did the tourist walk around. We all had a go on the 2 penny games as well as a horse race type game. Oma also arrived from Holland and she flew into Leeds where her daughter & son were there to pick her up. Fish & chips for tea and then a bit of chat and into ...
... was the lack of a hangover the next day :P I tried a mocktail called the friendly zombie (I thought it was appropriate given Xavier :P) and we all sat outside with our complementary fluffy lap blankets which was great in the wet weather haha it was a fun night :)
Tomorrow is our last day of the whole tour. It has gone way to quickly and it will be sad saying bye to everyone but there's always more adventure ahead :)
This morning, after a late start, we make our way into Helmsley. It's a pretty town of red roofed and yellow stone buildings. There is also a ruined castle. We do a bit of window shopping - it's mainly craft and tourist shops with a fair few bakeries and cafes emitting delicious smells - cruel! Ian goes off for a haircut, the most expensive one he's ever had - this is obviously an up market kind of place! I go off in search of a trim as well but have to wait for my appointment. I go ...
... this prime location...I don't remember anyone ever having an argument with Babs and coming out on top! Babs' husband Brian died five years before her so she would almost certainly have chosen this plot for him. Anyway it's a really nice peaceful spot in what Babs used to describe as 'God's own country'.
From Oswaldkirk it's a short drive to Kilburn where we go to see the famous white horse. The horse was cut in the hillside in 1857 by a ...
This morning we pack up again and bid goodbye to our furry neighbours...these being the incredibly cute looking alpacas in the field next to our campsite. We didn't try stroking them as we bet they are not as cute as they look :-) We leave around ten o'clock heading towards Helmsley. Our journey takes us along roads which dish up more or the same as yesterday...that is steep and seemingly unending, and which, when we finally reach the top take us plummeting ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Crown Spa Hotel Scarborough
We made our booking at the last minute through late rooms. It would appear that the room we stayed in (207) was kept specifically for late, cheap bookings. Room was fine - spotlessly clean and newly-decorated. Bathroom a bit dated, but again, very clean. Double bed was rather small. Room very warm, but Reception provided a fan upon request. Pool and Leisure areas all very nice, but small, so would be quite cramped at busy times. Breakfast was buffet style - average. Would recommend the Brasserie "Spice Traders" Restaurant within the hotel - they do an all you can eat buffet on certain weekdays, which we found to be good value. The hotel car park is small, but the hotels in the area provide guests with permits for on-street parking, and we didn't find a problem with parking. We were satisfied with the hotel considering it was a late booking, and the rate we paid.
Loved the water activities
good hotel, but costly up and down the cliffs for us senior citazens, somekind of consession would be welcome, oblige mrs hancock,.
we stayed in february this year and it was better than we thought the food
was excellent the staff very polite and the facilities ie the pool and the gym
all very good the only draw back is the parking but thats not too much of a
problem the view from the hotel is breath taking scarborough is best anyway because its in yorkshire and we are yorkshire we will go back no
doubt about that
Excellent and Enjoyable
I Have just had a most enjoyable stay at this Hotel.
The food is excellent and the staff very friendly.
The leisure was very good andit was nice tosee that Children were restricted from the sauna suites at all times. This meant that we had peace and quiet. The Pool also had children restricted times this is good in that this was the first hotel I have been to that did not have children running around and shouting all the time; well the noise was at least restricted to set times.
Our room was very clean and warm which made up for the poor stormy weather. Definately would go again!!!
The view from the hotel is by far the best thing about the Crown. In the lounge you can sit and have a drink or a nice cuppa and watch the fog roll in onto the Yorkshire coast........ In other words you need fine weather to get the most out of this hotel! If it's raining and cold, it's perched up on the clifftops and can be fairly miserable, but a small whisky in the front bar will help.
We arrived late after walking out of a horrendous neighbouring hotel..The Grand...and were pleased to see that we could be accomodated in this clean and friendly hotel. The room was fantastic, a family room with stunning views and elegant decor. The evening meal was excellent and we felt very welcome despite having a tired two and six year old, the waiter, Paul, was exceptionally helpful. We were too late to enjoy the pool but we will return to take advantage very soon. Clean, child friendly, excellent staff, good food and a damn site better than the Grand!!!
stayed half term in Feb here. the pool etc great-apart from teenage son not allowed to use the aroma rooms or the COLD jacuzzi at any time-not told this on the phone, restricted times for the pool for children.
staff friendly fitness facilities excellent brilliant swimming and leisure activities food of a very good standard and choice bargains to be had on winter breaks not to be missed return assured
We stayed at this big impossing victorian looking hotel with our 4 year old son. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and good.
We spoke to a couple who regularly stay at the hotel and they had the same room as the last time they stayed and it had been refurbished to a high standard. Our room was very clean and appeared new so it must be one of these newly refurbished rooms. The sea view was excellent. The leisure facilities are the best we have seen in a UK hotel for some time. Full Gym, Pool, and sauna suites. Definately will go again!
Shabby & not so Chic
Excellent view overlooking Scarborough bays and excellent food (the evening table d'hote better much than expected and very nicely presented) but the whole place could do with refurbishing. We stayed on a cheap break so perhaps the room we had was not representative of the whole accommodation. Certainly good value for money but will ask for a room upgrade next time!
