Following a multi-million pound investment nine existing farm buildings have been renovated and two new cottages built to create 11 luxury self-catered holiday properties. The 11 new lets complement the four existing holiday properties at Scalby Lodge, bringing the total to 15, all of which are available to book exclusively through English Country Cottages. A reception area, games room and outdoor play area have also enhanced the site.
All properties, which range between two and five bedrooms, follow the Duchy’s high sepcification design code and feature traditional and locally-sourced building materials such as pantiles, stone walls and timber frame windows and doors.
Paul Clarke, chief executive of the Duchy of Lancaster commented: ‘Given its attractive setting and proximity to the tourist hub of Scarborough, Scalby Lodge is ideal for a development of holiday cottages. This was a unique opportunity to breathe into these former agricultural buildings and we are delighted with the results of the renovation. The cottages look superb, both inside and out, and are blessed with such stunning views that I’m sure visitors will be extremely impressed.’
