  • "We had a fantastic stay at the Old Joiners Shop."

    The cottage had everything we needed and much more, it really was a home from home. The owners have clearly put a lot of thought into making our stay at the property comfortable. The property was immaculately clean, all credit to the lovely lady we met when we left yesterday. If we are ever needing a property in the area again, we will definitely be re-booking :-)

  • "The car parking area (for several vehicles) is more like a military parade ground and completely sterile."

    At Barmston road end there is a real eyesore. There is a dumping ground for old shop/caravan equipment etc. This is spreading into the car park. The cottage itself was one of the cleanest we’ve been to.

  • "A lovely clean and very well furnished property."

    Everything is of high quality and the cottage has everthing you need. The Welcome Pack was a lovely touch, and it was very much appreciated after a very long journey from Suffolk ( a very welcome cup of tea and a biscuit). The cottage is ideally situated to explore the East coast of Yorkshire and Moors. Lots of lovely walks, especially with the beautiful coastline so close.

  • "The Old Joiners Shop, is perfect for a laid back break, The only drawback we encountered was that the chef at the local pub was ill and there was no replacement, hence no food."

    So cooking in-house became a must as most other restaurants were miles away - well about 6 actually. Which meant the hubby (driver) couldn't drink, not really a hardship, but ........ The cottage itself was beautiful, comfortable and really well decorated. All the kitchen equipment was in good working order, apart from the kitchen bin which refused to operate - being battery driven we checked for the life remaining - all was fine - just a really stubborn bin. I think I would go down-market for a replacement. We didn't get to meet the owners as they were away, which was sad because we would have liked to have complimented them in person. The only drawback for us was that everywhere we wanted to go had to be by car, although the beach was near, I couldn't get there as my legs don't work too well - hubby (70) and daughter (well over 21) made the trip with our ever enthusiastic dog.

    Lovely, quiet location. Unfortunately, the wifi is only sporadic and very slow - very frustrating and this has been mentioned numerous times in the visitors book. I do feel this should be pointed out in the description of the facilities, as had I realised this I would not have booked this property. I also felt that one hand towel and one average sized towel per person was not enough for a whole week - again this has been mentioned previously in the visitors book.

  • "Sorry to say it was like sleeping on the M1 noise wise."

    1. Several mornings we had at 7 a.m. industrual waste bins being dragged out on stones and left outside our bedroom window smelling. 2. The bed wasnt really big enough or 2 people so husband slept in the bottom bunk which wa difficut to get to as the room was very small and narrow. 3. The shower was a small cubicle with electric shower which was too week with hardly any power. This mad it hard to get wet. Being it was so small it was awkward to bend to wash legs and feet as door would fly open and was very annoying. Being a disabled person a grab rail would have been required and helpful. The cottage was also right by the edge of the road that there was road noise near on all night and day. Also the heating would keep banging through the night so all in all a good nights sleep was very very difficult. Finally we left after 4 nghts and came home and as we where meant to go to another place had to cancelland loose more moeyas they could not accomodate us for the 3 nights we needed. So holiday completely mucked and and approx £500 loss. Now sitting at home £500 lighter. GGGGRRRRR. Very disappinted and angry.
