  • "Cleanliness and maintenance could be much improved."

    We have already been in contact regarding our stay.

    We are sorry that your stay didn’t meet your expectations and have taken note of the feedback you sent to Sykes after you left. We have an overall “outstanding” feedback rating, but unfortunately the cottage wasn’t up to our usual standards for your visit. If any future guests have queries or problems, we ask that they please contact us DURING your stay so that we have the opportunity to put things right. Thanks very much. Property Owner

  • "We have stayed in Eskside Cottage 3 times."

    The cottage is well equipped, comfortable and clean. It is situated in the centre of Sleights close to local amenities and transport. It is an excellent base for exploring Yorkshire coastline and moors. The owners maintain the property well. The downside is there is a small enclosed garden to the side but the back wall and kitchen window is in the neighbouring properties land. Our latest stay was only 4 days and the neighbours mini digger was parked outside the kitchen window. There is no real view from anywhere in the cottage, apart from back bedroom and nowhere to sit outside the property in the sun. It is however an excellent base from which to tour Yorkshire and return to.

    The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The welcome hamper was much appreciated. The water was nice and hot and there were good quality fluffy towels. We had no problems with connecting to the WiFi and accessed extra channels on the TV easily. The garden was enclosed and safe for our dog. Overall we had a very pleasant break despite the weather

  • "We had a few cleaning issues, had to wipe inside cupboards etc before food put away."

    Moved the nest of tables to put our bags in the corner and needed to hoover that area as not done. Also noticed on the dining room chairs where the cushion sits in need of a clean actually on the chair, but didn't do as we were on holiday break for my birthday treat. The radiators weren't piping hot apart from the upstairs landing. The lounge didn't throw enough heat out on the radiator and we had issues with no logs left on arrival which the owner rectified within half hour. We went out the following day as we used those logs and bought some more plus kindling which cost us £17.00 we used them all up to as we like to be warm, it wasn't the best log burner we have used tbh. The kitchen was great, plenty of room, and lots of thought gone into kitchen accessories, the fridge was large, always a bonus, dishwasher and we used the washer when we had been walking on NYD, using the quick wash, something we always book when away so we could use them the next day if needed. The bed in the back bedroom (tastefully decorated in duck egg blue), was lovely, comfortable bed and lovely linen too, however, the headboard is thick with dust so needs an hoover. The bathroom is absolutely gorgeous, great to relax in a hot bath after a hike, and lovely towels to dry with. Just one other thing to mention if arriving in the winter, the outside light at the rear is quite dim, fortunately we have torches on our phone so used them to walk up to the back door as it was pitch black, wet and dark, on arrival is via the back door to access the key, so maybe a security light for the side for the winter months till the clocks change, we have 3 at home for different areas and adjust the timer as and when the dark nights draw or for lighter nights.

  • "We had a lovely stay for a week at Eskside Cottage, it's perfectly placed for everything you need in Whitby, close enough for tourist attractions, supermarkets and shops if you need to go."

    We did have our car so we got around easy enough but buses are good and stops are closeby. The Cottage is extremely well equipped and comfortable, a welcome pack is provided for you consisting of tea, coffee, biscuits, chocolate, jam and milk which is a lovely touch. We would highly recommend The Hart Inn at Sandsend for a good value with a great menu for food, the pub has a small car park, first come, first served for tables in the pub downstairs area (dogs welcome) but booking is required when dining in the upstairs restaurant (no dogs allowed). We would definitely stay at Eskside Cottage again.

  • "The cottage was comfortable, beds very good to sleep on."

    Nice linen for bathroom and beds. Plenty of crockery & cutlery. Dishwasher and washing machine an asset. The welcome pack was appreciated. The village is lovely however the road that runs outside cottage to Egton is very busy and noisy. I do wish that instructions for rubbish bins were printed on a card in kitchen, many tourists do not read the instruction book so are unaware of bin protocol. The rubbish bin was Almost full outside on our arrival, we could just about put our bin liner inside before we departed. Nobody had popped the bin outside for weeks for refuse men to collect Tuesday morning.

  • "The cottage was beautifully decorated and furnished internally, the attention to detail was excellent!"

    ! However.....surprisingly the same attention to detail had certainly not been lavished on the outside spaces. Externally the cottage was in a very poor state of maintenance with cobwebs, dirt, moss, overgrown plants and weeds everywhere not to mention the poor state of the external paint such as on the pipework in the back yard and the dilapidated garden shed which hasn't seen paint in years. The garden furniture provided had definitely seen better days and was not really usable. This was a real shame as it meant we were unable to take advantage of sitting outdoors in the beautiful weather we experienced during our stay. Apart from the external problems with the cottage we really enjoyed the rest of our stay. Sleightsvillage is beautiful and worth a visit, although slightly tarnished by the amount of Whitby bound traffic running through the centre. We would love to stay in the village again and would consider staying in this cottage again but only if external manintenance issues were attended to.

    The only problem I had with this cottage was the heating was controlled via Hive by the owners it was very cold at night ,only on in the mornings we came home a day early because of this ,it was only 6 degrees outside & freezing inside it never came in at all one day ,I know know it’s May but more like winter especially on the coast ,apart from the heating it’s s perfect location for seeing North Yorkshire,I would return& hopefully not need our coats inside aswell as out

    Thank you for your 100% feedback - we are really pleased you had such a great stay and are planning a return trip. Sorry to hear you were cold - we’d hate to think anyone was chilly as the cottage is usually so nice and toasty, but last week was particularly rainy. The heating is controlled by a thermostat on the staircase so can be adjusted to suit your needs (by default it drops a few degrees at night for guests’ comfort but can be increased manually if required). If any of our guests are ever unsure about anything, they can contact Sykes so that we can advise or remedy any problems. We hope you will come back soon. Property Owner

    Had a wonderful stay, loved the new bathroom, comfy sofa, comfy bed, everything you would need in the kitchen. The only suggestion is maybe a tidy up around the patio outside the back door and either artificial grass or a path across the lawn as the key safe is at the side of the back door. We were lucky with fine weather but it could be messy in wet weather. We would definitely recommend staying here and I’m sure we’ll return here in the future.

    The village and cottage had a lovely atmosphere and provided a great base for our holiday. There was everything we needed and the welcome basket was a gesture we really appreciated. The area was really quiet and it was easy to park right outside the cottage. The new bathroom was lovely and overall all the rooms were comfortable. Although this is a matter of preference, the back bedroom had a very firm mattress and the stairs were very steep (stair gates were provided though which offered lots of comfort with having our son there) which is why I rated comfort a 4*.

    I would suggest that the outside grassy space is improved or at least some stepping stones added across the grass to get to the bins but this wasn't a massive issue for us. I'd also suggest some spray cleaner provided in the bathroom for guest use but again not a massive issue but good hygiene practice,not costly to provide and been provided in other properties we've stayed in the area.. I would also suggest a larger duvet for the pushed together twin beds as it wasn't quite big enough for us and also the mattresses seemed to roll you into the middle suggesting they might need turning or replacing. I'd suggest having two full size single beds zip and link. Overall though we had a great holiday, enjoyed the wood burner a couple of nights as a novelty but the central heating was very toasty anyway. Perfectly located around the corner from the pub and fish & chip shop. My suggestions are just to make the property even better.

    It was very comfortable and clean. We would definitely consider going there again. However there were a few things we thought could be improved. In the bathroom the towel rail kept falling off and the water pressure in the shower was very low. We were disappointed with the grassed area in the garden which was more moss and mud than grass. This meant our dog would not go out there. The microwave in the kitchen had two front feet missing so you couldn’t open the door without scratching the worktop. It also couldn’t be set and we had to switch it off at the mains to stop it.

The photograph of the back garden on the website is very misleading as it implies there is a large back garden with a wonderful view for use by the people renting the cottage.
