Property code: OC-S037

Escape with your loved ones at this delightful semi-detached bungalow just 2 miles outside the lively coastal town of Scarborough. Sleeping four people across two cosy bedrooms, this charming retreat is the ideal hideaway for small families or groups of friends who long to experience a beautiful blend of coastal and countryside serenity. During the day, wander around the lovely Peasholm Park or explore the historic ruins of Scarborough Castle. In the evening, come home to dine alfresco in the cottage’s pretty patio while taking in magnificent views of the sea and headland.

Step inside and you’ll find a welcoming lounge with wonderful seaside views through the patio doors. Take a moment to make yourself at home before heading to the sleek kitchen to prepare a delicious meal for your loved ones. Gather everyone around the dining table or head outside to enjoy a spot of al fresco dining on the patio. After dinner, pour yourself a glass of wine and watch the stars come out, or head back to the lounge and relax in front of the TV. At the end of the day, there are two lovely bedrooms to choose from, each with a comfy double bed.

Spread a blanket on the golden sand at Cayton Bay Beach (2.5 miles), or rent a surfboard or stand-up paddleboard and hit the waves. Alternatively, take a 7-mile trip to Filey to take some photos of Filey Brigg – a dramatic rocky peninsula that extends out into the sea and provides some stunning views of the coastline. While you’re there, pop into the Filey Museum to learn all about the history of the local area.

We have stayed at Knipe Point 7 times now, 4 times at Oystercatcher. We love it there, it's so peaceful and the Seaview is beautiful and relaxing. The cottage is always beautifully clean and we always feel at home and relaxed there.

A lovely cosy property that has a wonderful view and is a good base if you want to see the coast or travel further inland. The owner was really friendly and lives only next door so is to hand if you need anything.

Some kitchen utensils, ie cheese grater was dirty and rusty. Cupboards in kitchen were very high for me (4ft10) with door handles in middle of door rather than the bottom, so would have struggled if in my own. Other than that, very pleasant and would book again.

The views are great. The cleanliness of the proprty is outstanding. However, it should be made very clear that one should not trust ones own sat/nav and to follow the directions given. My sat/nav took me to the right road but I was faced with a locked wooden gate. Also, better instructions on the use of the oven/grill. Simple enough one woulRead mored think but it took a while to get the grill to work and even now I'm not sure if it was the oven or the grill that cooked my bacon ! ...and being a little picky, the metal gate access on to the Cleveland Way wasn't that easy to unlock. In fact I gave up and walked all of the way around. All in all, a very nice place for a break. Hide

The storage heater to the lounge area was broken a small electric oil heater had been supplied but had we not taken our own portable heater we would not have been warm enough by any means and I firmly believe we should have been informed about this lack of heating Additionally the storage heater to one of the bedrooms had clearly been switched off Read moreand was not working at all at the time of our arrival leaving us with a freezing cold bedroom for one night - again we should have been notified about this.

Oystercatcher is in a superb location on a private estate and with far reaching coastal views from inside - and even better from outside just nearby. We would have scored it higher but for: the need to update the property information folder - it has not been kept up to date after several new fittings and appliances have been installed; the lack of Read morewi-fi - we might not have stayed there if we had realised; lack of some kitchen equipment ranging from the (advertised) coffee machine to a vegetable peeler; the layout of the kitchen and bathroom and the position of some light switches were quite unergonomic; the fridge was inconveniently placed; the kitchen needed updating; there were nowhere near enough power sockets; the padlock on the gate to the footpath could not be opened with the key provided. Having said all that, we did enjoy our holiday and would be happy to stay there again. The booking process through to the date of the holiday was first rate. Hide

The sea views from the property are fantastic and the bungalow is very comfortable. Unfortunately the main storage heater in the lounge wasnt working and we could only use the electric blower, so it was quite cold in the mornings.
