All the rooms can be found on one level and both bedrooms are en suite.

Relaxation comes as second nature at Pear Tree Cottage, which offers space in abundance. The sitting area boasts a wood burning stove and is a cosy spot whatever the weather, with adjustable mood lighting, a Blu-ray DVD player, radio/iPod docking station, plush seating and bags of charm - perfect for snuggling up with a bottle or two of something delicious in front of the 45" Freesat Smart TV. Simply draw the drapes and choose your entertainment. The sleek cottage kitchen is a joy to cook in, complete with all the equipment you'll need to magic up delicious dishes throughout your holiday, including an electric oven and ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, Quartz work surfaces, plenty of cupboard space and the all-important coffee machine. Next to the kitchen, you'll find a fab dining table for 4, whilst on warmer days you'll want to make the most of dining alfresco.


There are two fabulous en-suite bedrooms to choose from - a master bedroom with king-sized bed and an en-suite shower room and a further twin bedroom with en-suite shower room. Exquisitely decorated, each is filled with beautifully furnished wardrobes and dressing tables, crisp linens and soft cushions and throws to ensure a blissful nights' sleep.


To the front of this property is a walled patio garden, complete with a Weber barbecue, outdoor seating and bubbling hot tub – perfect for a spot of star gazing with a glass of something special in hand. We have worked hard to ensure that there is plenty on-site to keep the whole family amused, too. There’s an outdoor play area and plenty of lawn for a game of cricket and a custom-built games room for all-ages, complete with pool table, air hockey and board games.


We have spent 3 days at Pear Tree Cottage and we have had the most wonderful time! The facilities are amazing and we have had such fun in the hot tub under the stars! The staff are so helpful and willing which made our stay with a baby so easy! I particularly liked the manicured gardens! Everything was great and we cannot wait to visit again soon!


We visited Pear Tree Cottage for our honeymoon and couldn't be happier with our stay. The customer service and facilities were second to none, and the welcome pack added a special touch. Thank you! We will be back.

In the area

Pear Tree Cottage is nestled in a sleepy North Yorkshire country hamlet boasting a quaint village pub. Just up the road is Scarborough, the ideal spot to pick up some delicious local produce and there are also some great sandy beaches within easy reach, so you don’t have to travel far. Harwood Dale Forest is well worth exploring to experience the natural beauty of this stunning area and offers lots of activities such as water sports, cycling and fishing. Further along the coast you’ll find Whitby, Filey, Sandsend and Robin Hood’s Bay. Take a trip on the North Yorks Moors Railway for an alternative way to see the countryside – it’s a glorious ride on a steam train with plenty to see either end. Located in one of the country’s most celebrated areas of natural beauty, means there’s endless walking opportunities on your doorstep.
