This grand, spacious property is a three storey period detached property, centrally situated in the village of Bempton and sleeping up to 14 people.

This former manor house is a magnificent period property and has retained many of its original features, keeping much of its character. The four spacious bedrooms are tastefully furnished and decorated, with two boasting en-suite facilities, and there is a further spacious and luxurious bathroom with a separate shower. The large, well-equipped kitchen has a breakfast bar and a dining area in the generous sitting room. This elegant room has the original oak fireplace and an open fire. A smaller sitting room houses a home movie system, with a capacious conservatory leading into a delightful enclosed garden. This property really does have all the ingredients for the perfect holiday situated between the coast and the glorious North Yorkshire Moors for a large family gathering or a group of friends.


Perfect for a family holiday
We returned to Walmsley House after previously staying there in September 2012. Yet again Walmsley House did not disappoint. The garden has massively improved since our last stay and is perfect for enjoying the sun with a large solid wood table, comfy reclining sun beds and a fire pit which we didn?t get round to using but we thought was a lovely addition. The house itself is full of character and in such a beautiful location. We found it well equipped for our stay with toys for the children and a large selection of family games and there were plenty of room for all of the different generations to spread out and have their own space, there is also a pub over the road that is perfect for if you fancy going out but not wanting to go too far. Walmsley House is full of history which is something that we did enjoy looking into while we were there. There is a good housekeeping bond to be paid but we had no issues with this and can see why this is requested. We are sure that we will be returning to Walmsley House I?m the future. Thank you again Anna and Simon for sharing your beautiful house!

Just what we wanted
We stayed here in a big three-generation family group over the May half-term holiday week. It suited us perfectly. It's a big old house with some quirks, but with a homely feel to it and we all enjoyed our holiday. Plenty of space for the children to run around outside, and plenty of things to amuse them indoors too. Better equipped than other self-catering properties we have rented. The pub opposite is very friendly and serves excellent local real ale and good "pub grub" style food. To cap it all, it's walking distance from the wonderful Bempton cliffs with their incredible seabird population. (Well, most of us walked - it was a bit too far for the 16-month-old!)

Wonderful old family house, full of character and great for groups with young children.
Along with my wife and 5 year old twins, this was our third stay at Walmsley House. As with previous visits, it made for a fantastic break away with friends. The house is a belter; great location, full of character and kitted up well for large groups or extended families. We were 3 families staying in total, with other friends dropping in for the day. The huge lounge and dining table is perfect for big meals and games, and we found the conservatory a beautiful room for breakfast. The house is great for young ones to explore, with boxes of games/toys around and a Wii in the snug, and we loved games and evening fires in the beautiful, enclosed garden. I'm pretty surprised by the review left around Christmas 2017; I have no idea where they stayed but it's a mile from our experiences! The only exception is first impression of WH could be better - the exterior from the road is in need of a lick of paint, but I imagine there are issues with having to close the road in order to carry out the work. For me, it's fantastic. It feels like a genuine family home, and we'll be back as often as we're able.

Lots of space but needs some attention
This big house is in the centre of Bempton. We found this to be a great location at a good price. The outside looks very cracked and dirty and run down which was a poor first impression. A coat of paint is needed. Inside is some lovely furniture but blinds that don?t go up properly and curtains that are coming away and other areas of neglect. I?m sure if someone went and made a big list of the basic things that needed sorting and got them done- it would make a huge difference. As it was we wouldn?t stay there again. Thanks

Amazing all year round
I have been to Walmsley House on several occasions and it is great for whatever you want it for. It is extremely close to Bridlington and Scarborough which makes day tripping lots of fun. The house was very clean when we arrived and there was a new dvd player in the TV room and a new shower in the master bedroom, something that we had spoken to the owners when we had gone before. We love going in the summer as well as the winter as we go out some days but enjoy having a cosy night in as well.
