Property Owner Reviewed by PatriciaOct 2023 "Lovely bungalow in a good location." We met the gentleman who owned the property, who said if there was anything he could do for us just ask. He even offered us a lift to the local restaurant. The instructions for the house, said how to turn the heating on, just by a thermostat. The heating was obviously turned off, and there was no way we could over ride it. There was a note in the houses book stating someone else had the same problem! Such a shame. Otherwise a lovely stay. We should have to ask to turn it on! I’m really sorry that you had a problem with the heating on arrival, as we explained at the time, following a summer where the heating just hadn’t been used for 6 months the boiler had gone to “sleep mode” a quick press of the reset button and the boiler was up and running. We’re glad that you enjoyed your stay, your feedback is greatly appreciated and we welcome you back anytime you’re looking for a North Yorkshire escape. Kind regards and best wishes. Property Owner Reviewed by AnthonySep 2023 "Very comfortable, spotlessly clean cottage in a lovely peaceful location, ideally situated for York, Harrogate, Thirsk and the coast." Welcoming, friendly owners on hand should you need anything but otherwise leave you to enjoy your holiday. Highly recommended. Thank you for your wonderful feedback, we’re so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner Reviewed by TrudySep 2023 "Stunning cottage in a lovely setting and peaceful location, yet handy for York and fishing and art pursuits."

Tasty welcome basket on arrival. Reviewed by DavidApr 2023 "The cottage was clean and comfortable." Outside furniture and garden is lovely apart from the smell of the oil central heating tank. Details suggest king size bed unless you request twin but on arrival it was twin - not a problem for us. Very convenient for Easingwold which is a lovely village with fantastic coffee shops and a local market. Owners friendly dog likes to visit and very close to the horses stables and plenty of parking.

Very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay very much. The owners have thought of everything. A home from home. Great welcome pack - we visited the bakers shop to take home some treats! Reviewed by NicolaJul 2022 "Fabulous holiday home!" Everything that you could want for cooking, baking and barbecue! Lovely village nearby. Well situated for seeing the area. Welcome basket was really nice. Way nicer than appeared on the website. Welcoming hosts. We would definitely consider coming back again Reviewed by NoelJul 2022 "The cottage is in a beautiful rural setting with large garden, close to the property owner's stables." It is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The welcome basket was lovely and greatly appreciated. The hosts are very warm, friendly and welcoming. We had a very enjoyable stay. Reviewed by WendyJun 2022 "Lovely cottage and really enjoyed our stay." The kids liked waking up each morning to see the horses. My mum and dad enjoyed spending time with their grandchildren and there was plenty of space for us all. Very clean, a kitchen with everything we needed. One suggestion (don't publish this) is to try and turn the hot water temperature down a bit on the tank if you can as it was very very hot. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay. Adam and family Reviewed by AdamApr 2022 "We had a great weekend at Providence Cottage, it was very clean and in beautiful surroundings." The welcome basket was a lovely touch. The cottage is very well laid out and the underfloor heating was brilliant in the cold January weather. The hosts were so friendly as was Margo the dog who came to say hi! Would definitely like to stay again in the future. Reviewed by TalullahJan 2022 "House was lovely, modern with excellent facilities, particularly the en-suites." Kitchen was well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer, cooker and microwave. Slightly hard to find in the dark at this time of year as there did not appear to be a sign at the end of the drive as was suggested in the instructions. However, it is within easy driving distance of local amenities and places of interest including York, Thirsk, Harrogate, Castle Howard, Byland and Rievaulx abbies. The welcome hamper was lovely but provision of things like dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid would also have been beneficial. Reviewed by AlisonNov 2021 "A lovely cottage in a stunning location." It has been refurbished to a high standard and has everything you need for a comfortable holiday. The owners have horses, dogs and a cat -which add to the experience. We will definitely return Reviewed by MurrayOct 2021 "Beautiful part of the world." Quiet peaceful cottage. Extremely comfortable, with everything you need for your week away.A very welcoming hamper was awaiting us, much appreciated. Reviewed by Phyllis LreneOct 2021 "Lovely stay at Providence Cottage." Extremely comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped cottage ideally located as a base to explore the beautiful and varied villages, whilst also only a 20 minute drive into the centre of York. We recommend a trip to Helmsley which was our favourite. The grounds are amazing and if you’re lucky to have good weather you can sit out in complete peace - except for the occasional visit from Marlow the very friendly pup. Future guests should note that one of the bedrooms is a twin (the advert suggests 3 doubles). It wasn’t a problem for us but please do bear in mind. Thanks for a great stay.

Only problem the directions were not good gives you the wrong turn off do not follow sat-nav . would definitely stay again Reviewed by TomSep 2020 "The hosts and owners of this property were incredibly hospitable, friendly and helpful." They left us to our own devices despite being within the grounds of their home which we appreciated. We loved the added perk of seeing their horses running around the field and of course meeting their friendly dogs Margot and Poppy, it really added to the experience at providence cottage. We cannot wait to return. Reviewed by KoraSep 2020 "The outdoor space was fantastic - just what was needed after kids spent 6 months couped up at home." . The owners were lovely and allowed the children to play on their tree house and their dogs kept my daughter entertained for hours whilst she played outside. The hammock was a nice surprise too, great for relaxing and watching the sunset. The cottage itself is finished to a great standard and felt really homely, plenty of storage space in all bedrooms and the kitchen was well equipped The location is great, only a short drive to York (or the park and ride) and there is a nice walk into Easingwold, which took about 40 minutes. Would definitely book this cottage again if returning to the area Reviewed by KarenAug 2020 "Beautiful accommodation in a lovely setting." Our hosts were friendly and accommodating. Couldn’t praise it enough. Reviewed by BrianJul 2020 "You need to change the written detail about the cottage, there is no games room at the property." As we did ask the owner She said someone else had also asked about this, & she didn’t know why it was written. This was not a problem to us, but it might bother some guests. Other than the above the cottage had everything you might need. Reviewed by FionaMar 2020 "Another lovely stay." Reviewed by NicolaFeb 2020 "The holiday itself was excellent." The property itself was very comfortable, met our location needs and was of a good standard of cleanliness despite a few large cobwebs around the lounge ceiling. The property may benefit from a little more crockery, cutlery, hand towels and tea towels. The cutlery basket in the dishwasher suffered from holes and will need replacing. Despite these minor comments, the cottage itself was fantastic, convenient to the explore the North Yorkshire sites and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. However, because of Sykes Cottages cancellation policy whereby we had to cancel our first booking 11 months prior to our reservation date and lost a portion of our deposit, we will not be using Sykes Cottages for our family get together in the future.

Our favourite family day out was to Stockeld Park. We also loved a couple of relaxing days staying at the cottage during the heatwave where the owners provided the kids with a paddling pool. Fantastic! Reviewed by TinaJul 2019 "Lovely welcome from the owners who were very friendly and helpful." Beautiful welcome package. Stunning views. The cottage was absolutely faultless and very, very clean. Cute dogs, lovely horses. Will definitely be back. Next October! Easingwold and surrounding areas are out of this world. Thank you for the lovely stay. Reviewed by NicolaJul 2019 "Providence Cottage was excellent for what we needed." We were a party of 3, including my parents both in their eighties. My Dad has mobility issues so this cottage which is all on one level met his needs and I would recommend it for anyone in those circumstances (not wheelchair however). A couple of suggestions, the sofas in the living room were very comfortable however not ideal for someone older as they are more difficult to get out of. There is a good chair in the kitchen but this was too heavy to move. The owners were only next door but a book for the house would be useful - bin day, what to put in each bin, the usual stuff. The dishwasher wasn't working which was fine, these things happen but a note would have been good. Other than that this is a really great base for the area. Close to the lovely market town of Easingwold with its cafes and shops, the Howardian Hills and beyond. I would definitely recommend it. I'm happy for you to use the positives of this feedback - the other is an observation not a grumble. Please don't publish full name or email address. Reviewed by JaneJun 2019 "Excellent location for exploring next to the A." 19, but no noise of traffic at all. The accommodation was to a very high standard - still feeling all very new.
