    “Lovely cottage with amazing views”

    My husband and I have just returned from a week-long stay in Maplebeck Cottage after booking through Sykes Cottages. We arrived to find cookies and wine on the dining table and a light, bright and airy cottage. The cottage was clean and spacious and had great views over the River Esk. Guests are supplied with everything they need - fully equipped kitchen, living area with TV, comfortable beds with bedding, bathroom with towels and bits & bobs for cleaning. However, there were minor issues (didn't affect our break) which we did report to Sykes - fridge door wouldn't close, dripping tap and faulty lights in the downstairs loo. The cottage itself is in a great location with easy access to Whitby, the Moors and surrounding areas. You can walk to Whitby in around 30 minutes along the cinder track (or across a sports field onto a pavement if wet). Taxis are £6 each way. We also walked to Robin Hood's Bay which took 1.5-2 hours along the cinder track (decided to get the bus back for £4 each). On a coiple of days we took the car to the Moors, Staithes, Saltburn and Guisborough (all within 30-40mins). We didnt do this but you can also get the NYMR steam train from Whitby to Pickering or a Northern Train along the line to Middlesborough for around £7 return. Whitby is a great place during the day and night with plenty of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Would definitely consider visiting again - thanks :-)
