  • "We all had a lovely time staying in this cottage, it was clean, comfortable, spacious (there where 8 of us and 1 child) and had everything we needed."

    The owners are just next door and they even left a very tasty cake for us. I would highly recommend staying here for a family holiday.

  • "The cottage was ok but needed a very good clean."

    The tv screen and mirror in the lounge were covered in finger prints, the tv remote had to be cleaned before we could use it. Some of the furnishings are tatty. The outside area had chalk writing over the patio area, an overflowing ashtray on the table and bits of rubbish strewn about. Some of kitchen equipment needs replacing. The frying pans are only fit for the bin. Not enough wine glasses and they are all mismatched. Cooker hood lights didn't work nor did the two sockets near the cooker. The toaster fused the electrics. The bedrooms were nice and the beds comfy with nice quality bed linen. A bedside lamp in the triple room didn't work. This is the first time we have been disappointed with a Sykes letting, a shame really as with a bit more care and attention it could be lovely.

    Owners are just next door if you need them but they give you space if you don’t. Plenty f space for bigger groups but equally manageable for smaller ones. We have stayed a few times and will be back again in the future.

    Owners were friendly and helpful. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. We had fun playing pool, darts and playing on the Xbox. Perfect for our two Labradors as they had plenty of room in the kitchen and had access to great walks in Dalby Forest. Explored Flamingoland, Castle Howard, Pickering, Dalby Forest, Go ape and the new North Yorkshire water park all within easy reach. Would return another year.

    Loved the way the owner put the bread maker on so on arrival you had fresh bread and the smell was lovely. If there was any small thing to change it would be, new dart board as the darts now fall out, a cupboard to put your food as they are so we'll equipped all cupboards are full and instructions on how to put heating on as could get cold at night.

    Cottage was massive and in a great spot for visiting very pretty nearby villages and bigger towns of Scarborough and Whitby. Had a good sized garden and access to trampoline and football pitch, which my girls loved. Also had darts, pool and a play station, although it desperately needs new darts and cues! Bed rooms were great size although configuration wouldn't work for some. Old fashioned decor but fine for us.

    Very comfortable, and newly decorated, with everything we needed. Plenty of room for our party of 6, and the two dogs. Had to resort to the woodburner on chillier evenings -- couldn't crack the Enigma Code of the central heating, and simpler instructions might be handy for autumn/winter visitors. But that's a small quibble. Allerston is a quiet village, with an excellent pub at the top of the road. Easy access to Scarborough, Whitby, Pickering, Helmsley and the moors.

    On arrival it was exceptionally clean, all the accommodation and furnishings were immaculate and therefore we felt at ease and comfortable immediately. The house is very spacious and provided an excellent base for our family holiday. The bedrooms are very spacious and again provided plenty of space for the 3 generations staying together. The large garden and play area were very much appreciated by our lively grandsons. The pool table was a great asset too - the grandsons enjoyed learning how to play. Would certainly recommend to other family groups.

    Ideal, the children loved it. A lovely gesture on arrival of fresh homemade bread , cake and buns. Milk in the fridge, such a nice touch. Horses in the field opposite. Lovely garden and patio area. A small playground for the children and trampolines, cows in the barn. A field for the children to play football. Not too far in the car to the beach. A visit is a must to Thornton Le-Dale. No coffee or sugar or blue bags for paper and cardboard but we managed.

  • "Beautiful cottage with plenty of parking on a working farm which we all loved especially when we went to see the cows in the barn!"

    The owners were very helpful and friendly and live next door which is ideal if you have any problems. We walked into a fabulously sized kitchen with buns and a loaf of bread waiting for us - delicious. The only thing we found was there wasn't quite enough serving bowls, we had a party of 8 so were doing a lot of food and found we were struggling to find bowls to serve food up in but that is literally the only criticism. The pool table was a big hit especially with the 2 teenagers we had with us and the 8 year old loved the little door between the bedrooms! Having 2 rooms with a double bed and a single bed is ideal when you have smaller children so they can be in the same room as you. Overall we had a great weekend celebrating our sons 18th birthday and would definitely come again as it's only an hour from home and we regularly visit Dalby forest anyway so it was great to have it on the doorstep. I would definitely recommend Boundcliff farm

  • "Spent a week at the property as part of a family celebration."

    We were greeted by the welcoming smell of freshly baked bread, and a homemade cake. It was an interesting property with unique features, like the little door connecting two of the bedrooms. Overall everything was clean but some parts were tired. All bedding was clean & fresh. As we went at the start of the new season we would have expected everything to be fresh from winter repairs. The drawer in the kitchen, left of the cooker, was broken. The main double bedroom had a curtain rail with a broken middle support & various curtain hooks missing. The shower cubicle door we felt was marked such that it could be best replaced. The pool table has seen better days, & had an interesting fall to one end! A throw on the back of the settee hides a hole in the back cushion. As the week proceeded it was found that the bathroom toilet had a leak, thankfully it seemed to be clear water. The property was ideally located for visits to the coast and North York moors. There were many well signed local walks, including one across the fields to the Grapes at Ebberston. The local pub, The Cayley Arms is worth a visit.

    The owner had left us a nice cake and a freshly baked loaf for our arrival which was a nice touch. The wifi was not as good as we would have hoped - one of our party had to submit work for his OU course whilst we were away and that proved difficult. In one sense it is a shame one has to take laptops away on holiday but often you want to use the internet for holiday-related purposes like checking the times of high tide, the location of dog friendly pubs, and the opening times of places to visit, etc. so a good wifi signal is becoming a must-have. The only other improvements we felt the property could benefit from would be a better dishwasher. Having the electric socket immediately above the hob seemed to be dangerous..... Otherwise it was very good. We like the Sykes search facility where you can see the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, not just say you want a property for a set number of people.
