About andrew wyborn
My family and I bought South Wing in February 2008 to use as a holiday home. We enjoy sharing it with guests and it provides a great base to explore the North Yorkshire coast and countryside. My wife is originally from Scarborough and we are regular visitors to this fantastic part of the country. I have three kids who all love staying at South Wing and regularly invite friends up to join them. They have more space here than at home and lots to do right on the doorstep. Many of our guests are regular visitors who enjoy the welcoming feel of South Wing and the opportunity to spend time with family and friends in a very comfortable and relaxed setting. I am obviously a little biased but South Wing is a fantastic place to take a break!

Why andrew wyborn chose Hunmanby
My wife is originally from Scarborough and we have many friends and family in the area. I can pretty much work from anywhere so we tend to spend a lot of time here in the kids holidays. As well as local friends, the things that really appeal are the house itself which is a great place to be based - it's big enough to accommodate us all in comfort without tripping over each other. We spend a lot of time at the beach weather permitting and our kids virtually live in their wetsuits in the summer (the water is cold!). I like cycling and the wolds are perfect for road cycling whilst nearby Dalby Forest is a mountain biker's dream. There's plenty for everyone and if the weather turns against you its the perfect excuse to stay in the house, crank up the log burner and relax.
What makes this House unique
There's lots of benefits to staying at South Wing. If you like to keep fit there is a 9 hole golf course and 4 tennis courts right outside that are available on a pay and play basis. There is also a very well equipped gym which you can join on a weekly basis. The village centre is a two minute walk away and is very well serviced with shops, hairdressers, doctors and dentists plus an excellent fish & chip shop and several good pubs. South Wing is massive, almost 6000 sq ft of space. Despite that it is very comfortable and welcoming and provides plenty of space to be together but also to be apart!

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this lovely review! Its great to hear you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again in the future
Fantastic holiday property
My family all had a fantastic time at the property.
The large number of spacious rooms meant the different age groups could split up and do their own thing, without bothering each other.
It was one of the coldest weekends of the year, so the heating was pushed to its limits in an effort to keep the house warm.
It was overall a memorable birthday weekend.
Excellent property and location for a family stay.
The property is excellent for a large family to make a base to visit the various resorts and places of interest which are all nearby. The accommodation has everything you need and plenty of space for a large family and is excellent for children. The property is central to the village with good shops and pubs.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. As you so rightly point out, South Wing is a large, family friendly house that provides a comfortable and well equipped base for a relaxing holiday. I do hope we'll see you back at South Wing soon!
Great weekend with family celebrating my dads retirement and 65th birthday. The house is amazing, plenty of space and in a beautiful location. I would highly recommend!
Thank you for this lovely review and I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay. South Wing is a great spot for a special celebration and hopefully we'll see you back in the future.
A happy place.
We were celebrating my wife's birthday by bringing our two daughters and their families together, without the responsibilities of hosting at home. Twelve in all.
The entrance hall confirms that our hopes for the holiday is bang-on.
As my wife and I venture within there was a warm feeling that the whole wing was going to be just perfect. Quirky and idiosyncratic mixed with comfort and style. Small but adequate Kitchen, the luxury of space in the TV room, Dining room, and entertainment room, not to forget the hall for the younger children.
The garden is really great, a good flat lawn for rounders, and a well maintained terraced shrubbery, while away under the trees there is a nature habitat.
We had a great holiday which was well facilitated by the house.
My only regret was we didn't get to play hide and seek of the adults against the children starting in the dining room and disappearing through the special window that secretly opens out at floor level. We did use it for the barBQ. What a place for a murder mystery weekend.
Thank you for this lovely review and great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. South Wing is an idyllic house for families and friends to get together without tripping over each other. It sounds like you had good weather and enjoyed the beautiful gardens and the new bbq. Hope to see you back soon!
A beautiful property in a great location.
We have just spent a long weekend in this lovely old house. Nine adults and five children aged 8, 2 and three under 2. Although a little chilly when we first arrived the property soon warmed up and for somewhere with such vast rooms was surprisingly cosy. There was room to run around for the little ones without fear of them hurting themselves or damaging anything which was a huge bonus for all of us, and lots of toys and games which were very much appreciated and played with. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and the range oven was perfect for cooking a roast chicken dinner for us all, even having somewhere to warm the plates! The owners very kindly left us a welcome pack of basics such as bacon, bread, milk, butter and wine. The beds were comfortable and had good quality whits bed linen with thick feather duvets. The soft, fluffy white towels and ample bathrooms for everyone were also appreciated. Everywhere was extremely clean. We didn't go out and about much as the weather wasn't brilliant but a trip to Flamborough Head blew the cobwebs away and gave us some dramatic scenery and some sunshine. We will certainly consider using this property again for similar family breaks in the future. The extensive grounds will be ideal for the little ones to play out during the summer and the sun terrace looked very appealing for warm days. Just one little observation, the piano was out of tune but we played it anyway.
