“We had a problem with plumbing.”
Dealt with very well and quickly
Dealt with very well and quickly Property was larger than expected Catered exceptionally well for dogs providing towels bedding and a flexi- lead. Plenty of wood for stove, books DVD. Etc I believe that the property is being sold. A shame.
We stayed at Penny farthings for 1 week. 2 adults, 2 teenage boys and 3 dogs ! We all loved it, especially the dogs ! Perfect base to explore Yorkshire. The house is very spacious, clean and well equipped. Garden is stunning and I will miss waking up to the view across the fields. It was so hard to find accommodation that would suit us all but this house was perfect and it felt very homely.
“The location was perfect.”
Five minutes from my daughters wedding venue. It was secluded and backed onto fields that you can walk in. The only niggle was no shaver point so I couldn't charge my toothbrush. Loads of space, really well equipped and excellent value for such a large house. It's just off the A64 and yet feels very rural.
“This was a delightful property in a very good location.”
The house was enormous and more than catered for our needs. We met Lorraine, the property contact, and housekeeper who was very nice, helpful and obliging. A card and a packet of biscuits was left for us as a greeting! Unfortunately, the weather was not kind to us and we could not fully enjoy the beautiful garden with amazing views. Would definitely recommend this property and Sykes Cottages!
This house is an amazing place to stay, it is spacious, clean, has everything you could need and we felt right at home. There were 5 adults, a baby and a dog in our group and we all loved it. Would go back.
“We felt very at home in this property and it was comfortable, spacious and warm.”
We would have no hesitation in going back and would highly recommend it to others.

About the location
York 8.5 miles.
Stamford Bridge, as its name suggests, was a fording point over the River Derwent for a Roman settlement. Nowadays, it is a village with a selection of shops and restaurants and is notable for a renovated railway viaduct, which is now used as a cycle and public footpath. The village is well known as the site of the Battle of Stamford Bridge on 25th September 1066, which marked the end of the Viking era in Britain. Within easy reach are the pretty Yorkshire market towns of Malton, Beverley and Driffield and within an hour’s drive is the unspoilt coastal resort of Filey with open beaches and the nearby RSPB nature reserve at Bempton.
Note: This property requires a Good House Keeping Bond of £100.00
