  • "Beautiful property in a lovely quiet spot."

    We had a really wonderful time in the cottage and it is spotless. We would definitely stay again.

  • "The holiday cottage was lovely as was the garden."

    Beautiful views out the back, would have been lovely in the summer to sit out as it is so peaceful and ideal for our child and the dogs. Thank you again for letting us bring both of our girls as they are part of our family too! It was lovely and clean on our arrival, we hope that we left it as clean as when we arrived. The only downside is the two chairs in the living room. They have a tendency to tip up unawares as our son found out and the floor is quite unforgiving!! Apart from that it is a beautiful 10 out of 10 cottage, we can't thank you enough

  • "Love this cottage, great location, nice and modern practical with walled garden stone floors , underfloor heating perfect, but."

    ... the downstairs bathroom should be in the description as them trips to the loo during the night are a pain and could be problematic for elderly. Also half a toilet roll, no fuel or fire lighters for log burner, and un lockable inner porch door, just needs a bolt on it. These small things that would make it perfect, it was our 2nd time there and would go again ,because we can deal with the downstairs bathroom because all the plusses out weigh the few negatives

  • "Beautiful cottage, spotless clean, very well equipped kitchen."

    I wasn't a fan of the swivel chairs in the lounge! The worst thing about the cottage is the parking space at the front, its so tight to get in and out of, some people would really struggle.

  • "Cherry cottage was gorgeous, beautiful enclosed garden overlooking fields for our dog."

    Parking was very tight in the front, but manageable if you’re a good driver. The bathroom is downstairs so people should be aware of this if you have to get up in the night. The pub oppersite was great, very friendly staff and wonderful food, especially the Sunday roast. Would definitely recommend, just be aware of the above items.

  • "The cottage is very well maintained and has high quality decor and furniture also very clean."

    The location is in a nice quite village but handy for Whitby town centre as it is only 3-4 miles away. The only drawbacks were the downstairs toilet, as my husband found this difficult when he had to get up during the night (not great for people of age and disability). We found that the bed was very firm and lastly there was a tight, awkward space to park outside the cottage, although the landlady at the pub next door kindly offered a parking space there if we wanted it.

  • "Lovely comfortable holiday home."

    Good quality decor and furnishings. Convenient parking space right in front and wonderful enclosed outdoor space which our dog loved to run around in. The previous residents had not picked up after their dog however so there was quite a lot of poo for us to clean up. The property was clean but very dusty - could have benefited from a flick round with a duster from the cleaner before we arrived. We had a fantastic holiday and I would thoroughly recommend the property. It is also in a great location. Aislaby is pretty and quiet and only a short distance away from all the amazing coastal and moorland towns and villages nearby - perfect for exploring. The Forge pub a couple of doors down is friendly and welcoming and does great food at reasonable prices. Thank you so much for a brilliant stay.

    The feather and down duvet was personally terrible for an allergy sufferer. Also a heavy weight for the summer was hot. Otherwise a really well equipped and presented cottage

  • "What a fantastic cottage."

    We enjoyed a lovely break with our fur baby. Everything we needed in the kitchen was supplied - even though we didn’t cook much. The garden was great especially with the bbq area. All rooms were very clean and comfy. The weather was too good to need to use the log burner but I’m sure it’s great in colder months. Location was ideal to explore local area. Will definitely book again! 10/10

  • "The cottage is lovely and the location is perfect, lots of lovely walks and close to Whitby."

    We had a lovely stay and would consider returning in the future. The only real downside is the driveway isn’t adequately described in the listing. The driveway itself is ample size for the majority of cars however the lane accessing the driveway isn’t and takes some manoeuvrings, we managed to get our car on the drive (average sized family car) eventually. Afterwards we decided to park on the roadway where there is ample parking. We’ve marked our review down purely because of the parking which is probably a fault of Sykes rather than the owners.

  • "We loved our week in this cottage, everything you needed was provided and the lovely garden was perfect."

    It's only 5 minutes out of Whitby but has a pub next door with great food. I could not recommend it enough to others especially with dogs as the garden is so large and secure.

  • "Still awaiting a reply from a written complaint regarding the description of the cottage we stayed in which was beautifully appointed and a credit to the owners, however sadly was not suitable for a family of four with a dog - bathroom situated downstairs to the rear of property (not mentioned) assumption it was on the first floor not good for elderly people and young children through the night."

    No room downstairs to sit comfortably around the table to eat - as my 12 year old grandchild said - she felt very cramped all week. The parking at the front is only suitable for a very small car - even then it would take great driving skills to manoeuvre into the space. Felt strongly that Sykes Cottages had misled us - no fault of the owners to whom we thank for the cleanliness and beautifully appointed facilities.

  • "A stunning little cottage in a stunning location."

    With regards to some comments about the small driveway; I was able to reverse my Ford Kuga into it but if you're not a confident driver there is ample, safe on-road parking. I would recommend catching the local hourly bus, Park and Ride (both approximately £5 family return) or local taxi (£8.50) into Whitby as the town itself can get incredibly visit. The views from the back garden are wonderful with the sheep grazing in the adjacent field. You can access the delightful local pub, The Forge, via a small alley to the left of the driveway. The cottage itself, although small, was ideal for a family of 4. It was incredibly clean and all of the amenities we required were there. There was nothing negative about our stay and I thoroughly recommend Cherry Cottage.

    Ideal area for sightseeing. The main bedroom under the bed required cleaning and the reverse of the cushions on settee in lounge were dirty, with dog hairs etc. We have a small dog so used some netting we acquired to make hedge secure as there were animals in the field. The only real downside for any elderly couple was the fact that the toilet was on the groundfloor with a steep staircase to negotiate if required during nightime. We actually left of the 26th and arrived home safely. Yours Judy and Jim Murray.
