  • "This is a lovely cottage on an ex-working farm adjacent to the owners cottage just outside of Loftus."

    The cottage has been refurbished and extended to a very high standard with 2 bedrooms and plenty of space. There is safe off-road parking behind the farm gates . Although the farm is no-longer working they still have a small collection of friendly animals including a very talkative pig , and a horse which watches your every move. There were also Barn and Tawny owls flying over. The small town of Loftus is currently being improved but has a lot of work to be done to make it attractive, this does not detract from the cottage , there are many other attractive places on the moors and coast to visit. The hosts are very welcoming.

    Thank you so much for the lovely feedback, it really is appreciated. So glad you enjoyed your stay. The market place is now complete as part of a 9 million pound regeneration scheme in the area, it’s host to a number of independent businesses including a fantastic local bakery. We can’t wait to see what else it brings as we have regularly been described as the perfect base to explore the area Property Owner

    The cottage was spotless, bright and airy, with every conceivable convenience available to ensure our comfort. The owners were a joy to meet, and were committed to us enjoying our holiday... From the 'welcome pack' of goodies to the fond farewell, we had a great time, in a great cottage. We look forward to returning.

    Thank you so much for the amazing feedback, it really is appreciated. We are so pleased you had an enjoyable holiday, that makes us very happy because that’s what we strive for for our guests. Hope to see you both again soon! Property Owner

  • "Grounds of property was fine apart from loose rocks which my grandson hurt his foot on, the boulder at top of stairs outside."

    Inside beds very uncomfortable & pillows, bathroom very dirty around skirting boards with dust & fluff. Received msgs from owner regarding lights being left on which I found a bit uncalled for as the electric is included in our price. My grandson spilt a little juice on one of beds which I tried to clean before we left, we were told you strip all beds prior to leaving. Mrs Wilson

    We are sorry that you encountered issues. It’s very surprising to us as our feedback is consistently excellent. You did not alert us to the injury, he appeared well whilst playing daily. You mentioned cleanliness issues, nothing was raised to us during your stay, they have only been raised by yourselves after Sykes contacted you about unreported damage. Outside lights were on throughout the day, and we politely asked if you were aware,as some guests have turned them on accidentally previously. Property Owner

  • "Love it, Love it, Fantastic little bungalow, we wanted for nothing and we’re extremely happy."

    Great location for exploring the area, if you don’t fancy driving everywhere there is a bus stop at the bottom right of the drive, we took the bus to Whitby one day and Saltburn the next so much easier than struggling for parking and in the holiday season the buses run late back. Some great walks around the area as well. Owners very pleasant and helpful and knowledgeable and respect your privacy they live on site and are available if needed, not that we did. I would 100% book this property again if we head back that way.

    Thank you for much for the amazing feedback, we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay! Property Owner

    We had an amazing stay at this wonderful holiday bungalow. Spotlessly clean and all the home comforts you will ever need. Fantastic location, walks to the coast from your doorstep. Our grandson who just over 3 years old loved to feed the the animals on the farm everyday with the owners who are really friendly and lovely people with a passion for animal welfare. Even all the animals are super friendly to. This is our second visit to Foulsyke farm we stayed in the cottage 2 years ago. We will for sure be returning again. All the best Darrin & Vicky, keep up the great work you are doing ensuring your guests have wonderful happy holiday memories. King regards John & Philomena

  • "We have stayed in many holiday properties but this could possibly be the best."

    We stayed in December so to walk through the front door and be greeted with a Christmas tree was special. A wonderful welcome basket which was much appreciated after a long journey. The bungalow is very comfortable and warm and has everything you could wish for. The garden was safe for our dog and the farm has many animals to see which I imagine would be lovely in the summer months. The hosts are easy to contact if you have any questions and are a very lovely, friendly couple. The walks from the door are incredible as is all the North Yorkshire coast. We will be back again.

    The animals on the farm where the bungalow is are great fun to see and (if you are lucky) feed. The bungalow is a 20 - 30 Minute walk from the spectacular Cleveland Way walk along the coast. There are three excellent beeches within 15 or 20 minutes, with fossil hunting at Runswick Bay. Plenty to do in Whitby, including kayaking or rowing on the River Esk at Ruswarp Riverside Cafe. Lovely new and clean bungalow with everything you need. All in all, would thoroughly recommend.

  • "Lovely bungalow, very modern and exceptionally clean."

    The owners are really friendly, welcoming and helpful. Set in an area with great beaches and places to visit. All the facilities you need for a relaxing break. Conservatory blinds would be useful as it did get very hot in there and made the area unusable with the current hot weather.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback we really do appreciate it. The conservatory has tinted roof glass and has three windows and a door. Lots of guests have said it is a stunning and enjoy the rural views from the conservatory. We have had unprecedented heatwaves in the uk this summer but we hope that the outside seating to front and rear gardens help our guests stay cool during the summer. Property Owner

The property

Foulsyke Farm Bungalow is a two-bedroom bungalow in Loftus, North Yorkshire and is idyllic for a family or group of friends to get away from it all.

The house is decorated with a contemporary touch, and has all the features you would expect, and enjoys views of the rolling hills.

Park up on the private driveway before entering your holiday home into the spacious, white-glossy kitchen.

The kitchen is fitted with all the appliances you need to make your favourite meals, from an electric oven, a hob, a microwave, a fridge, a freezer, a washing machine, and a dishwasher.

Enjoy mealtimes in the conservatory, home to a dining table for four, to soak up the natural light and in the evening, gather in the sitting room to unwind, and maybe even enjoy a toast to your getaway.

Afterwards, move over to the sofa and admire the greenery through the large windows as the Smart TV plays a family favourite.

Make the most of the summer months in the large, wraparound garden; here you can relax with a glass of wine and watch the sunset.

As day draws to night, venture inside, where on the ground-floor there are two bedrooms, with a king-size and a twin, both with Smart TVs.

Awaken tired eyes with a soothing soak in the fully tiled bathroom or opt for a rinse in the shower.

A public footpath runs beside the farm, leading to The Cleveland Way, which is less than a mile away.

The farm walk meets the Cleveland Way at the top of some of the highest cliffs on the east coast, offering views to the north towards Saltburn and south towards Staithes. However, before reaching the cliffs, you will walk past Street House Farm, where archaeologists uncovered a 3300BC Neolithic long cairn.

The Saxon Princess bed burial is one of only a dozen known in the UK, and likely the most northern, as the majority are on the south coast.

Spectacular artefacts, including gold set scallop shaped gemstones, were discovered buried with the princess and are now on permanent exhibit at the neighbouring Kirkleatham Museum.

There are 22 acres to explore with goats, pigs, chickens, and horses, as well as plenty of outdoor room for kids to run about in.

The village of Loftus is home to the Land of Iron at Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum; there are also several cafes and restaurants to fuel your day.

This lovely property is ideally located within a charming village with an independent book shop, cafés, bakeries and a gin bar which is popular with tourists and locals alike.

Be sure to stop at the local farm shop for some homemade cakes and pies, or dine out at The Tiger Inn, a popular choice with excellent reviews.

Enjoy a trip to the seaside with a choice of beautiful beaches in the area including Staithes, Runswick Bay and Port Mulgrave, which is known for its fossil hunting and also has a large fossil at the National History museum.

Also within easy reach is the North York Moors and Coast National Park which can take you to the Esk Valley for Goathland, affectionately known as Heartbeat country.

Why not travel over the moors and into the picture-perfect market towns of Helmsley, Pickering, and Malton for a day of shopping, or for the thrill-seekers, make your way to to Yorkshire's ultimate theme park, Flamingo Land, which is just 30 miles away and home to an award-winning zoo, perfect for animal lovers too!

Foulsyke Farm Bungalow is a stylish abode, perfect for your next staycation.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1021276, together sleeping up to 10 guests.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
