The English seaside town of Scarborough has been welcoming holidaymakers for many years and still retains many of its original fine buildings. The North Bay has a safe, sandy beach whilst the golden sands of South Bay are broken by a rocky headland on which stands Scarborough Castle. The castle was built in the reign of King Stephen and has had a rich and varied history, making it well worth exploring. Peasholm Park has a beautiful lake where all sorts of boats can be hired from rowing boats to dragon headed pedalos, and visitors can while away the time messing about on the water. There are many attractions in and around this lovely seaside town, and with its wide range of restaurants, cafés and shops, Scarborough is a marvellous centre for a family holiday.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

The heat of the swimming pool is the hottest we have ever been in, our 4 year old disabled son loved the warmth of the pool. The owners thought of every thing.

Westfield Barn is lovely place to stay for all. We all loved having our own pool and also the hot tub. For the evening a real fire was fab. The place was made very comfy and was spot on. The village was an easy walk for the pub, chippy and was a 5min ride for Chinese food and a playground area for children was also in the village. We will be back. LOVED IT.

Mr Thomson

The holiday overall was excellent, but the hot tub pool totally sealed the deal with hours of fun and entertainment. Would definitely give it 5 Stars and hope to return at some point in the future.

We love Westfield Barn, this was our 3rd but certainly not our last visit. Having your own pool and hot tub gives you a week of complete relaxation, the owners are always there if needed but never intrude. We took a friend with us for the weekend and as she walked around we were counting the wows. The dogs are always welcome and the garden is secure for them with the added bonus of a great paddock for them to have a run in. The area is full of places to visit, lovely places to eat and there is a great little supermarket in the village.

The swimming pool and hot tub are wonderful, it was a great family holiday.

Great cottage which had everything we needed. The outside area was brilliant for letting the dog have a run around. The cottage was in a nice village which had all the amenities you would need.
Mr Walsh
November 2014
The pool and hot tub were great, it was nice cosy, and in a good location. Wanted to book for next year and bring the grand kids but it was fully booked!
Mrs Carney
August 2014
Private use of the swimming pool and hot tub were crucial factors in booking this holiday. In fact we have provisionally booked for 2016 as the cottage was already booked for 2015. The cottage was located in east reach of all numerous local attractions, making this a great base for a family holiday.
Mrs Latham
August 2014
The cottage was a home from home with very good facilities. We particularly enjoyed the warm pool , hot tub and outdoor space. The children also enjoyed watching the chickens. The owners were friendly and welcoming.
Mrs Pollock
August 2014

Mr Darvill

Being able to return to the cottage for a swim or use the hot tub after a day out. The lounge was very spacious and comfortable for relaxing in the evening. The location being only 4 miles away from Scarborough's sandy beaches was ideal with two dogs.
Mr Smith
May 2014
Very highly recommended accommodation, everything you needed was there. The Barn was clean and well appointed and the owners were very friendly. The property is within easy reach of the coast and the North Yorkshire moors. We all had a fantastic holiday, many thanks for a wonderful time.
Ms Padgett

We liked the log and coal fire, swimming pool and the hot tub. Views were also good. Walking distance to the local pubs, Seamer was a nice village with easy access to beaches and surrounding areas.
Mrs Fenney
January 2014
Felt so at home - loved it all, the pool was lovely, warm, so relaxing and spotless as well. Fresh flowers and a local paper supplied on top of everything else. Really want to go back again to enjoy the area, patio and BBQ more.
Mrs Taft

Very comfortable accommodation especially the lounge. Excellent pool. Good access to dog walks, only short drive to dog friendly beach, walking distance to 2 dog friendly pubs. Good village supermarket.

The barn was so homely. The swimming pool and hot tub were fantastic. The owners were the nicest people you could meet. The village pub was lovely, and the people were friendly and the food was good. It was great in all ways.
Mrs Midgley
October 2013
Absolutely fabulous place to stay with family or friends, very clean and comfortable. The fact that you went straight into the swimming pool directly from the house was brilliant. It was a beautiful setting, and an excellent weekend.
Mrs Barron

Everything was wonderful, the barn was like my own house, all comforts were catered for. Lovely family holiday, and have recommended this property to all my friends.
Mr Stead
August 2013
We had a wonderful family holiday. The barn was perfect, a good size with plenty of room for the whole family, plus the patio, bbq and garden, and of course the swimming pool and the hot tub were fantastic. The owners and their family were very helpful and friendly. The village is lovely, and we found the local people very welcoming. The village pubs serve good food and drink, we particularly enjoyed the Mayfield. Great location for visiting Whitby, Scarborough and Filey. Cannot recommend highly enough and we have already booked to go back next year.
Mr Castle
July 2013
The owners and the people living nearby were friendly and helpful. The Barn was what a barn should be. The pool was very good, especially for the children as it did not go too deep. The hot tub was smashing. Beds were comfy with plenty of covers which we did not need as we were so lucky with the weather. We hope to return. Thank you.
Mr Gaze

Cosy real fire, lovely hot tub and indoor pool. Fluffy bathrobes were provided, as were tea, coffee, biscuits, and firewood. The attention to detail and anticipation of our requirements was excellent.
Miss Anson

Everything about our holiday was perfect and we did not want to come home at the end of our stay. The cottage was spotless and like a home from home. The owners were friendly and approachable and we will return.

Our holiday home was fantastic, we wanted for nothing and the owners were lovely.
November 2013
We came for a week in November and it was just perfect. My girlfriend had previously been with 6 friends in February and my mum thought it would be ideal for a family get away. There was 3 couples and a 9 month old and it was still spacious and was very accomadating for us all. There is plenty to do around the location as well. We have already booked again for November 14 For the price it is more than good value it is brilliant. Pool and got tub were very well looked after Thank you to the owners who were extremely friendly and helpful

After a short welcome tour we were left alone to enjoy our holiday, knowing that the owners were just next door if we did need anything. We didnt. Everything we needed was there for us. We were provided with loads and loads of towels, soap and shampoo. The pool was lovely and warm as was the hot tub. There were robes to borrow for the run to the hot tub, inflatable pool toys and a shower and a toilet on the pool side for convenience. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots and pans, a 1000watt microwave and fresh milk, tea,coffee and even choc biccies. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. The roof windows in the bedroom meant that we could keep the blinds open (nobody could see in) and sleep 'under the stars' whilst enjoying the quiet nights. We popped down to Scarborough a few times, about 4 miles away, and we were very suprised to find all the seafront shops and arcades open on the weekend - in freezing cold December! The only downside to mention would be for those with dogs. We stayed in December so it was dark until half seven in the morning and dark by 4pm in the afternoon. The nice lady owner said the dogs are welcome to pee in the garden, just beyond the hot tub which is enclosed with wire fencing, but the dogs then have to come back into the house via the swimming pool with their muddy paws. So after that one time we took to walking our dogs on the pavement at the road side. This is very dark though with few street lights and very fast cars (despite the 30mph limit). But we cannot blame the owners for the street lighting of course.

Aleady hope to book again in the future. Only downside was the arctic weather outside but we were warm and cosy inside and the open log fire made the cottage very homely. Deceptively large too, especially as were two couples with what seemed an excessive amount of stuff for a week stay. Plenty of space. Parking for twwo cars as well. The swimming pool and hot tub were fantstic and we all enjoyed daily swims. A lovely, relaxing stay and the owners were very personable and welcoming, as were other members of the family. Would highly recommend Westfield Barn. Good location for North Yorkshire and the East Coast.
March 2013
I hired this cottage for a long weekend with my husband and 4 friends. We were made to feel welcome from the outset, with a quick but informative show around by Jane. Every comfort had been catered for and anticipated, with tea, coffee and biscuits provided for our use, and fluffy bathrobes for snuggling up in around the indoor pool, and for the short dash across the patio (in freezing temperatures) to the lovely hot tub. We made good use of the pool, and absolutely loved sitting in the hot tub, sipping champagne and gazing out and watching the snow falling gently on the lawn, as we felt snug (and very very smug!) The living room is comfortable and cosy, with a real fire to welcome you in after a bracing stroll along Marine Drive at Scarborough. The furnishings and bedding were fresh and expensive-looking, and the kitchen and bathroom facilities more than adequate. We ate in two of the evenings, and had dinner at the Copper Horse (a short stroll down the road) on the first evening, which I would deffinately recommend. A trip to the micro brewery at Cropton (30 mins drive) followed by lunch in its adjoining pub, was the perfect way to spend a leisurely Saturday lunchtime. All in all, a perfect weekend.

Came away for my birthday with 6 friends, and it was the perfect property for us all! The hot tub and swimming pool were enjoyed by all, and for the price paid it was an unreal! There was plenty of room for everyone and the beds were nice and comfy, the whole property is very clean and well equipped with eveything you need. The owners were lovely showing us round the property telling us all we need to know, and were always on hand to help, and even if their out, their family live opposite which was good for us when we lost the keys (found them later on in the sofa bed, oops!) Overall i would recommend this property to anyone, families, couples or friends. It really is so worth it, and the price what you pay is nothing,

We had a wonderful time at Westfield Barn, it was January, it was snowy but we were warm and cosy and very comfortable. The entire holiday was relaxing, it was great to be able to swim every morning followed by a dip in the hot sub. There is a great bus service from the village and although we had the car we made full use of the buses to York and Scarborough.The cottage is well equipped, quiet and peaceful but has easy access to the beautiful Yorkshire coastline and the moors.We will certainly go again

The swimming pool was great and we enjoyed having a swim each day. The open fire made it nice and warm at night and there was a good shop locally for food. We would go there again.
