Absolutely fabulous, the views were great, fabulous attention to detail and a wonderful. This really was home from home thank you to the owner and Sykes for the perfect accommodation.

Very good views of Whitby town and harbour from every window
Mr Coutts, Gordonvale, November 2012
Perfect for our family, great location, views are breathtaking even when bad weather. The cottage was very modern and spotlessly clean. There are 77 steps at side of cottage to go down to the bay, so keeps you fit. Worth every step going back up for the wonderful views. Already booked again for next year.
Mr Baddeley, Dronfield, September 2012
The views were amazing and the fact that you could sit in the conservatory and see the river and the sea as well as the moors made it a real pleasure. For my partner it was a real bonus that smoking was allowed and despite this, the house was clean and fresh.
