About Mrs Melanie Paul
I'm Melanie and Home Farm House is our much loved family holiday home. The family is, Nick, MD of and IT recruitment business and our 5 children - 2 grown up girls, 2 teenage boys and our little 6 year old princess!
Why Mrs Melanie Paul chose Scarborough District
We have always been connected to Scalby and Scarborough. I was born and brought up in the village and still have family there. Nick and I were married in St Laurences, the beautiful village church which you can see from Home Farm House. We have taken our children to Scarborough each summer for the past 22 years and when our expanding family became too large to stay with grandparents we bought Home Farm House. We have done a lot of work updating and modernising this old farmhouse and invested a lot of time, love and money into making a comfortable, quality holiday home.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Home Farm House is unique in the area with its large private swimming pool which is great for all ages. We leave inflatables for kids and it is also large enough for adults to properly exercise in. Being our family holiday home we leave plenty of games and books for children and also a play station for older kids. Based in the centre of the village, just a short walk from a great pub and bistro, and with a real fire for winter and a child friendly large garden for summer, Home Farm House is the perfect family holiday home for all seasons.
Pool / Spa
Great Family Holiday
A wonderful, well proportioned house/cottage for 3 generations. Large pool which Grandparents enjoyed early morning swims without the kids, while the kids had their own (supervised) time to splash about and not disturb anyone else.
Thank you for your comments. It was a pleasure to welcome you at Home Farm House. We are very lucky to have an exceptionally large swimming pool which works well for both proper swimming exercise and is great fun for kids with plenty of room for inflatables. I hope we will be able to accommodate you again in the future.
A Great Place to Stay for all the Family
As a group of mixed ages, from 2 to 60, we wanted somewhere that would suit the whole family. We chose Home Farm House and it was perfect. The children loved the pool and the adults loved the fact that it was very safe. We could close the door knowing that the children could not get in the pool without adult supervision. The house accommodated us all really easily and we enjoyed gathering round the big table in the kitchen. The Yew Tree and The Plough in the village were enjoyed by us all. A great place to stay and I would highly recommend it.
New Year stay in Home Farm House was great,
We came to stay here for new year with friends and children and we all really enjoyed it.
It was a perfect house, enough space for everyone and the kids just loved the pool.
We had a great new year and would definitely come back.
Our family booked the Cottage for Christmas 2016. What a delight. From the moment we walked in the door, we knew we would love it. Cosy, warm and welcoming are the words best to describe it. Plenty of room, a fantastic kitchen with under floor heating, which leads to a dining area, and through the doors to the swimming pool. It was fab on Christmas Day to be able to go in the pool with my six month old grandson.
The bedrooms are a great size, with plenty of cupboard space.
Theres everything there that you could possibly need.
My only negative comment is that we struggled to control the heating, it was very warm in the house, but that's much better than being cold. Thank you to Melanie for all your help and answering my endless questions !!!
Many thanks for your positive review. Christmas is such a special time of year and we aim to make it all the more special for our guests in every way we can. It's very pleasing to see we have succeeded.
A great family break
