... name for Lastingham was Lęstingau.Lęstingau first appears in history when King Ethelwald of Deira (651-c.655)founded a monastery for his own burial. Bede attributes the initiative to Ethelwald'schaplain Caelin, a brother of Cedd, Chad and Cynibil. Bede records that Ceddand Cynibil consecrated the site, and that Cynibil built it of wood. Cedd ruled the monastery as the first abbot until his death, combining ...

Another Thursday arrived and we realized it was time to get back to our walks. It was Peter's turn to plan where we would go. After about a 45 minute drive towards Helmsley, we arrived at our destination - a walk on the moorland at ArdenHawnby Estate.

Weatherwise, the day looked promising. Temperatures were moderate and the skies were blue. England has had a very rainy winter and we were prepared ...

... English as a foreign language could be an option. I LOVED working with the students, who were from all different countries (Saudi Arabia, Spain, France, Japan...you name it!) and it made me realise how much I enjoyed helping them with their English language studies. And besides, (without sounding too big-headed), the rest of the world will always need English teachers, so you would never be out of a job really! With this in mind, it was October 2013 when I decided to get ...

... or-cosy Chinese bed, and watching Chinese TV eating noodles and drinking Chinese green tea (I don't mean to sound stereotypical there by the way! You never know, I could end up having a good old McDonald's breakfast every day.) All in all I feel like I am ready and excited to go and make the most of the experience, and also challenge myself with unfamiliar situations. I just think that the opportunity is there, and there is really no reason not to do ...

The rain again?

A travel blog entry by rebecca.taylor

Just like when we were leaving for Pocklington, the train lines were again delayed. After Claire's Mum and Peter drove us to the station we realised that our train was 40 minutes delayed, then we had to travel the second part by bus and then finally the third part was so slow that again we were running two hours behind schedule upon arrival in London.

And there is the end of Christmas- now New Years to look forward ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Wrea Head Hall Scarborough

    Super suite

    from

    we recently stayed in the suite and found it to be very clean , comfortable and spacecious . the staff were very helpfull and looked to cater for our needs . it is certainly worth paying extra for this room + the food was very good (with a personal recommendation for the duck )

    Dirty rooms, very expensive food

    from

    We stayed here for a Saturday night and were very impressed by the building and the location. However... the room we had was filthy, you would get a better room in a B & B for a fifth of the price- and I would recommennd you did just that!! When I complained- I got the feeling this happens a lot! The food is hugely overpriced and the menu is littered with 'supplements'- why can't they just have one price or individually price everything??

    It was a real shame as this could be a seriously good hotel, but is not- it needs to seriously pull it socks up! I would not recommend it to anyone unless you are happy with dirty rooms and not good food!!

    Don't Go There!

    from

    If you want to stay in a hotel in a lovely quite rural setting - but if you care about clean rooms, clean bathrooms and nice food don't go there! I didn't rate this as 'terrible' due to the location but please don't be fooled by the adds. The rooms are small and dirty, bathrooms even worse and breakfast straight from the freezer shop. One night stay cost £110 for a "double" room very expensive for what we got. Would not stay there again and would certainly not recommend to anyone else

    Excellent Value break

    from

    Stayed at this hotel for a 2 day break and was pleasantly surprised considering earlier reviews. The staff were very pleasant and the food was delicious plentiful and served by very pleasant staff. There were beautiful views from our room and although I would describe the room as slightly 'shabby chic' it was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The downstairs library, lounge, bar and restaurant were tastefully furnished (I presume they had been updated recently as all the funiture was new)and the conservatory was also pleasant for a pre dinner drink. All in all a very nice stay and I will have no hesitation in returning in the future if only to explore the grounds which I never got round to this time.

    A Truely Relaxing Time

    from

    The only thing that would have made this break better, would have been to stay longer.

    The hotel was lovely and the grounds were beautiful. It certainly is a place to relax in.

    The staff were very friendly, pleasant and helpful. The bar staff were great and full of character and the meals were wonderful.

    The four poster bed was a little rickety, but apart from that our break was truely a breath of fresh air.

    Pre Easter Break

    from

    We have just returned from a mid-week break at this hotel and found it to be well run, the staff efficient and the food fantastic. The only criticism I could make is that the bath was in need of replacing.

    Never again!

    from

    Last September (2005) we booked again for the Wrea Head Hotel, Scarborough,having stayed there a couple of times previously.

    A lovely hotel

    from

    We have stayed at the Wrea Head twice and have just booked to go again for a weekend with our families.

    Enjoyed my stay

    from

    Stayed here on a team build event with work. It provided a relaxed atmosphere, especially in the evening - lots of squashy sofas - and nobody minded our little quiz in one room - there was lots of space for groups or couples.

    Room was lovely - old fashioned, but clean and well equipped.

    Food was lovely.

    Disappointing

    from

    What a disappointment !. As our 4th Wedding Anniversary was on a Saturday we decided that we would have a treat and go to a nice hotel, have a four poster bed and generally spoil ourselves. We booked to Wrea Head through Superbreak specifically requesting a room with a Four Poster, we had to pay a supplement for a one night stay on a Saturday night so including dinner the total cost was ? 175.00 - for the one night. When we impressed as we drove up the drive as it was a beautiful building set in picturesque grounds, however when we went to check in they appeared not to have our reservation as there was not a registration card printed for us, this was covered up and we were told we were in The Suite - great I thought, we were shown to our room, you went into a lounge which smelt musty and had 2 settee's which had definitely seen better days, you went through the bathroom to the bedroom which DID NOT HAVE A FOUR POSTER, yes it was a Superking size bed but this is nothing special to us as we have one of these at home, oh well we decided make the best of it. However when we went to bed that night what a mistake we should have complained it wasn't one bed but two singles joined together so there was a ridge down the middle - great for our anniversary we either had to sleep in a single bed together or sleep either side of the ridge ! The decor was not bad but has seen better days with chips of paint out of the wardrobes and a drawer handle missing, ring marks on the dressing table etc., The cleanliness - the top of the trouser press was thick with dust, there were marks on the radiator in the bathroom, mud on the carpet in the lounge, hairs still in the bath, cobwebs in the corners of ceilings generally in need of a good spring clean this was also obvious in the bar with hand prints on mirrors and cobwebs on light fittings - I know it is an old hall but that's no excuse for dirt. And to complete my disappointment in the room I got into the shower on Sunday morning to find the head was wedged behind the holder which was broke so you had to hold the head and shower with one hand. The food was good - I wouldn't rave about it but it was edible and the dining room was very clean, however (oh that word again) the breakfast did look a bit meagre on the plate - 1 rasher of bacon, 1 sausage, 1 hash brown, 1 tomato, 1 egg and half a slice of bread fried - might I suggest smaller plates. Be careful of the prices charged by the hotel - we went for afternoon tea when we arrived with my husband ordering the fruit cake with cheese and myself a tuna sandwich - I got my sandwich he however got 3 slices of different cakes - no cheese for these we were charged ? 10.85 the tea was extra. At dinner my husband decided to try again and ordered the cheese and biscuits as they came with grapes celery and fruit cake, this time he got the cheese - no cake. We also found the drinks a little expensive at ?11.60 for 2 pints of lager and a malibu and diet coke. When we checked out we were asked if we liked the room when I said no we had wanted a four poster we were told next time to book direct - there certainly won't be a next time for us !!
