  • "Absolutely perfect!"

    Couldn't have asked for better. We went for a 40th birthday and the owner and Sandra made it so easy for us as they were able to arrange all the little extras I wanted. Would 100% recommended and would definitely return in a heartbeat.

  • "Routhorpe House is a beautiful place for a holiday."

    Modern and tastefully decorated it had all the facilities my family could have wanted and more. It’s set in a gorgeous location and is easily accessible to a number of places. We visited Driffield, York, Beverley and Scarborough and had a wonderful time. My mother is in a wheelchair and we had children with us. It can be difficult to find somewhere that really works for us all but here definitely did and we hope to return again.

  • "Amazing property that is finished to a high standard and excellent throughout."

    There is everything you need and the property is in a quiet location, perfect for a getaway. I was visiting in a group of 10 for my 40th birthday and we could not have asked for more! The hot tub was amazing and the beds were extremely comfortable. Hopefully we’ll be visiting again.

  • "We have just come back from a four night stay at Routhorpe house."

    We have booked through Sykes plenty of times but we have never had a more of a pleasant experience than Routhorpe house. Carl the owner was just a text away from ensuring we had everything and asked if we needed anything during our stay. The house was spotless, comfortable beds, and plenty of facilities. We can’t wait to come back! Thank you, Amie.

  • "Amazing property, facilities and the overall finish and feel of the property is simply the best place I’ve ever stayed in."

    Everything has been considered by the owners, from all the glassware and plates you could ever desire to the hot tub and garden games. The owners go the extra mile to make sure you have a wonderful stay, and all of the 9 other people that stayed there had nothing but good things to say. The only few tiny things that could improve the place would be an addition of a downstairs wc for people to use, rather than using the en-suite or heading upstairs, but in reality it isn’t an issue, just a point that could improve the comfort of guests who can’t walk so well. The other issue is road noise, because it sits just off a roundabout leading to a straight road, so motorbikes and cars really put their foot down and create loud noise, this isn’t noticeable inside as the double glazing is exceptional, but when in the garden it can be quite loud at times. Without doubt I’d recommend this property to family and friends and anyone who asks.

  • "Excellent Feb half-term week spent at Routhorpe House."

    The property is exactly as advertised and 9 of us had a brilliant time! We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub especially in the snow. Spent most of our time in the amazing kitchen cooking, playing games & laughing. Had 4 children in our group aged between 5 and 12, the house had something for each of them and netflix on the TVs was an added bonus! They loved playing outside in the grounds from playing on the swing set to playing hide & seek Hosts were great, nothing was too much trouble with fantastic communication before, during and after our stay Looking forward to booking a return visit in the near future

  • "Amazing property, it looked amazing on the photos but in real life it was so much better."

    Everything immaculately clean, the kitchen had everything you could ever need to cook. There was 8 of us and we cooked a huge roast dinner with no problems. The Christmas tree and decorations were a great touch and massively appreciated. Communication with the owner was fantastic and was on hand whenever we had a query. Couldn’t recommend the property enough and it was great to see a rental that wasn’t charging extortionate prices just because it was close to Christmas. Wouldn’t hesitate to return we had a great time. Also the hot tub was the best hot tub we have ever seen in a holiday property. Thanks very much
