Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Copper Horse Cottages are just off the high street in Seamer and very close to Scarborough. There is a row of five semi detached cottages and a detached one which is the one we were in. They are all independently named.
The property is double fronted and when you enter you see a spacious living room to the left, an extremely well equipped kitchen and downstairs toilet to the right and central stairs leading up to two double bedrooms and a shower room.
The furniture is all of very high spec with beautiful pictures and ornaments. The living room has a table and four chairs, settee, two leather chairs, small tables and sideboard, TV on the wall and a gas fire. There is doors leading to an outside courtyard with garden furniture and well kept planters.
The kitchen is highly equipped and lacks nothing at all
Upstairs has two bedrooms, each has two beds attached to each other which can be split into two singles. Catering for four people in total. I must stress the beds are as everything very good quality but very firm which will not suit everyone. Both rooms are decorated beautifully, TV In each and dressing gowns are provided.
The shower room is so well organised, however, the one piece of advice would be to take a shower mat for safety purposes as the floor of the shower is very smooth and slippy.
Outside there is a small car parking area, however, as an overspill you can park a few yards along the high street in the Car Park of the Copper Horse Restaurant which belongs to the same owners, and if you eat there you will get a 10% reduction off your food bill.
10/10 for cleanliness. Absolutely gleaming.

We stayed in Adelphi Lodge for a week and absolutely loved it. The kids had their own rooms, each with a smart TV so they were delighted. The main bedroom was very comfortable, and robes were provided in each room which was a lovely extra touch. Location was excellent, easy to get to Park and Ride into Scarborough. We also had a very nice Sunday roast at the Copper Horse pub. Highly recommended!

We stayed 3 nights in Piccadilly Cottage. We found it very well equipped although it was far too hot on arrival. Once we’d cooled it down it was fine, and we appreciated the welcome pack. We had one meal in the Copper Horse which was good, though portions are large. There is also a supermarket over the road and a good fish and chip shop. You can walk along Long Lane to the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Burton Riggs site and Seamer is a good place from which to visit Filey and Scarborough on the coast or the North Yorkshire moors inland.

The cottage was clean, lovely, decorated with an eye for detail in the decoration. Shame the eye for detail stopped here!

Here are my niggles:
Firstly had trouble booking, sent an email to say that the online booking system seemed to have problems. No reply ever to this email. Checked availability on booking.com and then called The Copper Horse, booked direct with them, so to save their commission, 3 times asked for email to be sent confirming the booking, still nothing received. Turned up and was taken to the property by a young woman, who kept us waiting in the bar for what seemed liked ages, while she went to put on her coat, scarf etc.... the pub is 1 minute walk away! She really could have given us the key as she gave us no information and was more concerned that we should not annoy the neighbours by parking in the street outside. We ate at the Copper Horse the first night and the meal was nice/OK. Slept well after cooling down the house, as a welcome the heating had been left on maximum, it was like a sauna. The blind in the bedroom was broken, after the first day we left it down all the time. On the first morning, as the blind was down, it was dark to see the problem, in fact I thought I had broken it, my husband wound it back manually and assured me the cord/mechanism was missing. If we had been told eg "blind broken, a replacement on order, but not yet arrived"... it would not have been a problem, as these things happen. The BIGGEST GRIPE I had, was that people came into the cottage, while we were out, at least twice, as doors we had closed were left open and a menu taken from the table one day and new menu the next day. It should have felt like our safe haven, home from home but it didn't.

We were going to eat in the Copper Horse again, but it was shut, the lights were on, but door locked. So we had the misfortune to eat at The Mayfield, also owned by the same people. Awful! Had to ask for the table to be wiped, food awful, the knife and fork given in a napkin, was stuck together with what looked like baked on chewing gum, had to ask for replacements. The staff were all stood in little gaggles and just ignored customers, this to a lesser extent happened also at the Copper Horse. On a whole it just seems that the place needs a good manager, that could manage and motivate the young staff.

Ok so let me say first that the cottages are stunning. Well furnished, comfy and everything you need. Great local shop and chippy. Why only "Average" then?
It was the customer service that let them down. In the cottage was a very detailed "rule book". One of the many statements was that the heating was always on and you could adjust it with the thermostat. It went on to say that on no account must you touch the boiler.
By early evening it was getting cold. It was noticeable that even when adjusting the thermostat that the heating was not coming on. A quick look at the boiler confirmed that it had definitely been turned off. Easy to fix as to turn it on was obvious. However wanting to stick to the rules I phoned the Copper Horse pub ( as instructed) and was told someone would be there in 5 minutes. 45 minutes later no-one had come. I phoned many times and got no reply. I was on the verge of giving up and having to go round when finally someone answered . I asked why no-one had come and they said the pub had got busy and someone would come whenever they could. I replied that this was not good enough. I had my 85 year old mother with me and she was cold. I stated that unless someone came immediately I would have no choice but to "break the rules" and turn the boiler on myself.
This seemed to have the desired effect as someone came around within 5 minutes and after a bit of faffing (and him phoning someone else) he said he "thought" it was ok.
I also mentioned that one of the bedrooms had a remote missing to which I was told that we weren't the only cottage that had a missing remote from one of the rooms...?!
I note from other reviews too that there had been noise from bands playing at the Mayfield pub. We were lucky as it was Thursday and no acts weer on but it was easy to see why this would be the case as two of our bedrooms overlooked the back of the pub.
Seeing as they say the Mayfield is their "sister hotel" it seems odd that in accommodation that suits families with young children this would be allowed to go on.
If you are thinking of booking here on a Friday or Saturday it might be worth checking if there are any bands on at the Mayfield first.
So in summary a beautiful cottage but a few things to be wary of.

Just returned from a lovely family holiday at the Aldwych cottage part of The Copper Horse cottages.
The space is ideal, suited us well. Great to have smart tvs in all the rooms, all the appliances and extra equipment you'd need.
However, we did feel that the cleanliness of the property was lacking. The living room floor needed hoovered as soon as we arrived, cobwebs in the window frames and by the kitchen door, the chrome towel rails in the bathrooms were dusty, water marks on the glass shelves and the shower screen didn't appear to have been cleaned. This may not seem much to some but we expected a better standard especially with covid.
A few other things to mention, all the wallpaper was coming away from the wall in the living room, we couldn't get the heating to work (not that it was cold, but to dry clothes after getting caught in a downpour), downstairs toilet seat wasn't fitted correctly, so you sat on the pan, and there was no hook for the retractable washing line.

The live music from the Mayfield Pub went on til after 11.30pm on Friday night, extremely loud so worth considering if you've small children.

This may seem picky and most of these could be easily sorted with a bit more attention to detail.
Overall an ideal location and a great property, just lacking in attention to detail that would make it a true 5 star property.

What a wonderful place to stay.
Beautifully furnished and stocked with everything you could possibly need.
Great location with two pubs, mini market shop and local fish and chips.
We took our dog, fully enclosed garden.
Booked direct with them and that way you can choose your cottage.
Would thoroughly recommend.

Wow this detached cottage is fantastic!! We had a really wonderful weekend staying in this accommodation, it was perfect! I couldn't believe such quality and taste, I didn't quite expect it to be this good. The lovely private back garden was perfect also with tasteful furniture once again. If you are use to high standards then this accommodation will not disappoint. The staff are so helpful and kind, they even provide a welcome pack, which is a nice touch. We had a wonderful Wedding Anniversary, thank you everyone at the Copper Horse.

Just realised, the cottages, not the pub! There are steps two, into the cottage but once inside there is a bedroom on the lower floor, so, if you can manage two steps, it is accessible.

Hi Yes, living room and kitchen are shared; I booked on a B&B basis and breakfast was provided at the sister hotel (Mayfield) a couple of doors down; the cottage is on the main road through the village, I personally didn't find noise to be an issue but I stayed mid-week and out of season so can't comment on other times of the year; mobile coverage for me was ok on Vodafone; also had wifi which I had to connect to a couple of times but it was sufficient for basic surfing and checking emails. Hope this helps and do enjoy if you go there :)
