About Jayne White

We are Jayne and Graham White and we have lived in the area with our family for many years. We have tried to create friendly, comfortable and relaxing holiday homes for our guests which have been updated and improved whilst trying to retain the character

Jayne White purchased this house in 2002

Why Jayne White chose Scarborough

The local village of Scalby has a very nice feel to it and with it's pub's and shops it is very much alive. The local area has so many nice walks along the river cut or the disused railway line up to Ravenscar you can be miles away but very close to town. Also you have easy access to Scarborough and Whitby at hand.

What makes this house unique

The property allows you to have a family get together in a quiet secluded location but with all facilities on your door step.

Detached Family House In Village On Northern Edge Of Scarborough

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spend a great week here at the end of May 14. The house is fantastic for families. My grandchildren (aged 6,5,4,3) loved that they had a lounge to themselves (so did we). The garden was great when it wasn't raining. Great location to get to all of the east coast. Lovely place to spend a family holiday. Well equipped and felt like home from home.
