    Meadowside Scarborough holiday let

    Nearly 10 years ago my parents decided to buy a holiday home in Scarborough.  I hadn’t been to the seaside town for years and couldn’t really remember having visited in my childhood.  I really had no idea what to expect.

    Last weekend I packed my bags and headed down to Scarborough for my annual girls weekend. No kids, no responsibilities, plenty of chat and prosecco is the recurring theme of the trip.

    This weekend saw Maker Faire UK take over the Centre for Life. Exhibitors, creators, crafters, inventors and lots of cool stuff was on display.
