"We had the most fun weekend at the cottage."
A family of 6 adults absolutely loved the cosy well designed rooms with lots of extra touches that made it extra special. The owners live next door and are very welcoming but leave you to your own devices. Special mention to the ‘kids’ hunting game that has us consumed for the whole weekend! One of the best places we have rented! Thanks Vicky and Darren.
"Lovely comfortable cottage."
The cottage was spotlessly clean, and had everything you needed. Lovely welcome basket and even our dog was thought of. The owners are next door and happy to help and advise about the area, but not intrusive at all, and the cottage information folder was the best I had ever seen, with directions to get onto the Cleveland Way. Smart TV for streaming in our chill time. Good location for Whitby and Saltburn. Should also visit Staithes and Runswick Bay . Loved waking and seeing the goats out of the window too.
Thank you so much for the fabulous feeback, we really appreciate it! So glad you had a nice break away Property Owner
"We love Foulsyke Farm Cottage and the amazing family who own it, who went over and beyond to make us welcome, even leaving treats for our Guinea Pig in the welcome pack."
The cottage has everything you could wish for, is on a delighful farm, with the lovliest and most entertaining animals ever. It is situated near so many beautiful beaches, its hard to decide where to go next. Darrin and Vicky are the perfect hosts, so friendly and welcoming, we wanted to bring them home with us! We cant wait for the opportunity to visit them again, and consider them to be lifelong friends. Thanks guys xxxxx

"The cottage is gorgeous and we were made to feel incredibly welcome!"
Thankyou so much for the lovely feedback! Property Owner
"Fantastic stay, couldn’t fault it in anyway whatsoever."
I will definitely book again. The holiday was a surprise for my mums 50th birthday and it couldn’t have been in a better location, good price, fantastic bath/shower/beds. Loved waking up to the animals on the farm as well. I would recommend anyone booking this cottage for a holiday as it is in a perfect location with short drives to Saltburn, runswick bay, Whitby etc. Friendly, welcoming host with gift basket. Cleanliness superb. Bedrooms superb and very comfortable. Thanks for a fantastic stay!
Thank you so much for the fantastic feedback, it’s really appreciated. So pleased your Mum enjoyed her surprise and you had a lovely family holiday. Property Owner
"Extremely well appointed, comfortable and clean."
The animals around the farm yard were a great attraction for us all but especially the two youngsters in our party. My 3 and 6 year old grand children.
Thankyou so much for the lovely feedback, it’s really appreciated - we love having youngsters stay at our cottage to make memories with their families - it’s always a pleasure to see and hear their excitement at being on a farm. Property Owner
"Fabulous cottage in a great location to explore both the coast and the moors."
It is well equipped and clean. We enjoyed watching the goats and pigs and our dog was extremely intrigued by the chickens wandering around. The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathroom was amazing. We loved the powerful shower and the lavish bath. All in all, we had a great time.
What amazing feedback, thankyou! So pleased you enjoyed your time at the cottage Property Owner
"Outstanding cottage very nice location, host was very helpful great knowledge of local pubs and places to eat."
Very clean like home from home. Would definitely recommend thanks for a great stay on our first visit to Yorkshire
Thankyou so much for the fabulous feedback and choosing to stay in our cottage. We are so glad you had a lovely first visit to Yorkshire. Property Owner
"Lovely cottage, beautifully clean."
I was glad our party was four rather than six as only one bath/wc was a bit of an issue. Very convenient location. Lovely coastal/walking break.
Thankyou so much for the feedback, we are really glad you enjoyed your stay. We do make it clear in the advert that is only one bathroom (with a roll top bath and large separate shower cubicle) this is because we want to keep the originality of our 150 year old farmhouse. So pleased you liked the location, we are so lucky to be close to some amazing places! Property Owner
"The cottage was great, very clean and comfortable and the shower is amazing!"
The kitchen had everything that you would need. Lovely walks from the door and perfectly placed for exploring the North Yorkshire coast and Moors. The animals were an added bonus, I have a real soft spot for goats. The hosts are next door if needed, really friendly but never intrusive. Make sure you read the welcome book, very informative but also amusing. We will definitely be back!
Thankyou so much for the lovely feedback, glad you enjoyed your week and seeing the animals! Look forward to hopefully seeing you all again in the future Property Owner
"Really nice homely accommodation with excellent hosts."
Thankyou so much for the feeback, we really appreciate it. Glad you had a lovely week, always happy when a guest chooses to return for a second stay. Property Owner
"Foulsyke Farm Cottage."
..bliss. so clean and comfortable we did not want to come home. Vicky and Darrin are 2 of the nicest people you could meet, so friendly and welcoming. Vicky even put nibbles in the welcome pack for our Guinea Pig Harry. ( thought Vicky was going to kidnap him lol).Loved waking up to the trampolining Goats and gorgeous Pigs, such a treat. The area is packed with lovely, and interesting places to visit. Recommend Beamish, its fabulous, and the surrounding beaches are lovely. Thanks Vicky and Darrin for sharing your lovely home with us, and will see you very soon. Xxx
It was a pleasure to meet you all, including little Harry who was the sweetest. So glad you had a lovely week and we are really looking forward to catching up with you all again in the summer! Property Owner
"We had a lovely weeks stay at Foulsyke Farm!"
It was clean, had absolutely everything you could ask for while self catering and within easy walking distance from the local pub… The Tiger Inn which served lovely food. We were greeted with a lovely welcome pack including gorgeous treats and fresh milk. We loved the animals on the farm and watching their antics! Stunning beaches are only afew miles away including Staithes, Runswick Bay and many others including the beautiful Whitby where they do the best fish and chips! We thoroughly enjoyed our week and will definitely be returning at some point. Thank you so much Vicky and Darrin for your hospitality
Thankyou so much for this amazing feedback! Was lovely to meet you both and we are so glad you had a fab week. Will look forward to hopefully seeing you both again in the future. Property Owner
"A beautifully appointed, comfortable cottage."
The owners have pretty much thought of everything, including a much appreciated Dolce Gusto coffee machine (our girls love a choccochino!). If we could make any suggestions at all for improvement (and we're being really picky!) it would be for a mixer tap on the bathroom sink and a serrated knife in the kitchen.
Hi, thanks so much for the great feedback, it’s much appreciated. There should be a serrated knife in the drawers with the others, as we placed a selection in there, will check and if not, will replace. Glad you had a lovely stay! Property Owner
"Made to feel so welcome."
Owners really friendly and nothing too much trouble. Lovely to be able to and encouraged to engage with the farm animals. The accommodation was absolutely top class. Homely and welcoming. The individual touches was so nice. My sister from Australia thoughts are exactly the same providing her with good old Yorkshire hospitality which she so misses. Totally recommend this cottage to everyone. Hopefully going back in the new year to complete some more of the picturesque walks.
Thankyou so much for the amazing feedback. It was lovely to meet the family and we are so glad you enjoyed your early Christmas celebrations at the cottage. We hope to see you all again soon! Property Owner

Thankyou so much for the lovely feedback, glad you enjoyed your stay! Property Owner
"Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!"
The owners were a delight! Pleasant and helpful and not at all intrusive despite the fact they lived next door! We enjoyed the menagerie!
Thank you for such lovely feedback, it was great to meet you and the family, so glad you had a lovely week. The animals do seem to be a big part of the attraction for guests! Property Owner
"The cottage was in a great location for the local beaches and some great walks, it was comfortable, well equipped and beautifully clean."
We really enjoyed our holiday in the area, meeting all the animals on the farm and the owners could not have been more friendly and helpful.
Thankyou so much for taking the time to leave feedback. It really is appreciated! So glad you had an enjoyable stay, it was lovely to meet you both. Property Owner
"We had a fabulous stay at Foulsyke."
Great hosts and really appreciated the welcome goodies. Fab central location to explore the area. Darrin and Vicky were fab and very welcoming. Lots of little extras to accommodate our little dog who fell in love with the goats. Would definitely recommend staying here. Loved it.
"Cottage was lovely decor good everything we needed Owners really helpful we ..."
Cottage was lovely decor good everything we needed Owners really helpful we all likes the animals We would go back again and recommend the cottage Margaret
Thankyou for such great feedback, was lovely to meet you all! Property Owner
"Cannot say enough good things about our hosts."
Couldn't do enough for us and our 2 boys. The cottage was absolutely lovely, perfect for our family of 4 with room to spare. The only thing I would love to see is the garden being completely enclosed round the front so that when the boys wander from back to front garden, I know they aren't able to escape, but I must reiterate that this is just a little nice to have and would still give Foulsyke 10/10.
Thankyou for taking the time to leave feedback, we really do appreciate it. The yard at the side of the house is fully enclosed as is the farm yard. We are really glad you had a lovely week and the boys enjoyed playing with the animals and playing in the paddling pool we set up for them. Property Owner
"We loved our stay at Foulsyke Cottage!"
The house was immaculately clean and had everything we could have needed. It is in a great location, very close to Staithes and Saltburn which are great days out. It’s in a very serene location with some nice walks nearby. The kids also loved feeding the goats on the farm and looking at the other animals (chickens, rabbits and horses). Vicky and Darrin were very welcoming and we really felt at home here. We hope to come back again!
Thankyou for such lovely feedback, we really do appreciate it! So glad you all enjoyed your stay, hope to see you all again in the future. Property Owner
"Lovely cottage, great place for places to visit, the pub just up the road was very good."
Thankyou for taking the time to leave feedback, we really do appreciate it as we put a lot of effort into making the cottage cosy and comfortable for our guests. So glad you enjoyed The Tiger Inn, the food there is delicious! Property Owner
"We were a family of four generations who have had a blast."
The cottage was exceptionally clean. (It’s most probably the cleanest we have stayed in with Sykes). The cottage was extremely comfortable and well equipped. The welcome basket was a great touch and saves you rushing to the shops for milk and teabags. It was great that all the goodies were local to the area. We even had a little pot of fresh honey made by Darrin’s bees. Teddy our dog liked the touches that were especially for him the little treats; dog bowls, blanket and towel were well appreciated. Our 2 year old loved the chickens, goats, pigs and horses and being allowed to feed the animals as they roam around the farm yard. He also got to sit on the tractor and cuddle Bertie the goat. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming and had great local knowledge and directed us to the best beaches and rock pools. Nothing was too much trouble and we had an uneventful stay. The cottage was well situated and a short drive from most local amenities form the railways, beaches, amusements, rock pools, Puffins and not forgetting the Yorkshire moors. We have had a fantastic time here and will be back next year! Many thanks to Vicky, Darrin and Joseph our fantastic hosts it was great chatting to you all!
Thankyou so much for a fabulous review! We really do appreciate it! It was wonderful to meet you all and see little Milo loving the farm so much. Hope to see you all again soon. Property Owner
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."
The property was spotless, very well appointed, with comfy beds and a lovely bathroom and marvellous shower. The basket of goodies with some milk in the fridge ready for a cup of Yorkshire tea on arrival was very welcome. The location is great for visiting the coast and the Moors. The bus stop outside was very useful for the journey back, having taken the suggested walk along the nearby cliffs on the Cleveland Way and ventured into Staithes. I would highly recommend this property; one of the best we've stayed in. Thanks for a great holiday.
We really appreciate you taking time to leave us feedback and we are so happy you had a lovely time. Such a fabulous review, thankyou! Property Owner
"We had a lovely time at Foulsyke cottage the owners were lovely the only draw ..."
We had a lovely time at Foulsyke cottage the owners were lovely the only draw back to the place is the busy main road ,which runs past the cottage Other than that it was perfect
Really appreciate you taking the time to leave feedback, our advert does say ‘expect some road noise’ and the first photo on the advert shows the cottage location next to a road. Other guests that have stayed and left feedback haven’t found the road to be an issue, in fact some have even commented how quiet it is. Thankyou for telling us during the week that the place was ‘a slice of heaven’ and that you’d didn’t want to leave. We love our spot and glad that our guests do too. Property Owner
"Lovely quiet cosy cottage, ideal for visiting Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay."
Clean and well equipped, with thoughtful little touches (and an amazing shower!) we had one little issue (that wouldn’t have and didn’t affect our stay) but the owners sorted it same day with no fuss. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again.
"A lovely property in a wonderful location!"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage.
"Had a fantastic week at Foulsyke."
The cottage had everything we needed and we were made to feel really welcome by the owners. Great base for exploring the wonderful Cleveland coast. Would highly recommend.
"An excellent cottage that met all our needs."
Comfortable, welcoming, with all the facilities we could ask for, and friendly, accommodating owners as well. Recommended.
"The property had everything we needed and more."
The rooms were cosy and comfy and the log burner was a lovely addition.
"The cottage was absolutely perfect!"
Sparkling clean, with everything we needed. It was beautifully decorated too: Vicky and Darrin had put up Christmas decorations for us! They were super helpful - we arrived late, on a very stormy night and they had left the lights on for us, and had turned the heating up. When we had questions they had all the answers. Loftus is in exactly the right place - with a lovely drive to Whitby or Saltburn. The moors are minutes away. And if you fancy a walk, there's a lovely walk to the sea cliffs. We'd also recommend Mad Alice's Gin Palace, and Loftus bookshop. We had a brilliant time. We would recommend 11/10!
"The cottage is very cute and cosy."
Had everything we needed for a nice weekend break.
"Excellent property with very friendly non intrusive owners."
The road noise (??) was minimal unless of course you had the windows open! Very comfortable well furnished property and that bath was just what the doctor ordered after those coastal walks along the Cleveland Way. Would definitely recommend this property.
"The house was so comfortable and it was easy to contact the owners if needed as they were right next door."
We had a lovely relaxing time and enjoyed seeing all the animals and feeding the chickens.
"The owners made us feel extremely welcome and allowed us free access to their farm animals, which was awesome!"
Relaxing and beautiful decorated. Love the welcome pack of treats and Honey. Owners helpful and welcoming, great with teenagers and one dog who was relaxed and enjoyed the walks and blanket. Very thoughtful and couldn’t do enough for us. Thank you , Vicky, Darrin & Jo and all the animals. Will be booking again.
"We loved our stay at Foulsyke Farm!"
Darrin and Vicky were fabulous hosts - friendly, welcoming and had a great knowledge of the local area and things to do. The Cottage is situated within easy driving distance of lots of lovely places to visit. We loved meeting all the animals On the farm which was an added bonus. The Cottage is just beautiful and accommodated six adults comfortably. The welcome pack was lovely and packed with some tasty local products - and of course Yorkshire Tea! The amazing shower and beautiful slipper bath were perfect after a day exploring. The seating area outside was great for relaxing and chatting into the evening as it got the sun until it finally set. Would absolutely recommend this ‘little piece of heaven!” We enjoyed a perfect, peaceful getaway!
"Location, facilities, and fantastic hosts on hand if needed cheerful and very helpful nothing was to much trouble would recommend and come again."
"Fantastic stay, the cottage was lovely and the location was brilliant."
Would recommend a stay here.
"Vicki & Jarrid made us feel very welcome and felt like we were visiting friends, the house was extremely comfortable and homely."
We will definitely visit again and because I haven't mentioned it yet, the shower was amazing
"Vic and Darren were great the cottage lovely BUT the service from Sykes was shocking I tried 3 times from Tuesday - Thursday each time holding up to an hour listening to a very poor recoded message telling me you’d be with me shortly!"
! While I appreciate you are busy and folk are now thinking of breaks you are giving Vic and Darren very poor service and I feel you should refund them whatever service charge you take for this booking. I’d struggle to use Sykes again Further the questions above talk about expectations about you do you got a 0. But the accommodation would get a 10 the cottage met our requirements beautifully but you let them down dreadfully
"The cottage is fab, it was immaculately clean, has everything you need from a lovely welcome pack to little things like dishwasher tablets and even washing machine capsules."
The beds are comfy and bath and shower are fab. Everything is of a high standard. Darrin and Vicky the owners are amazing, super friendly and happily chat, recommend places to visit and just make you feel welcome. It feels like you arrive as guests and leave as friends. The location is perfect for exploring Staithes, Whitby and the moors. Altho the cottage is located on a main road, this is not a problem as noise is minimal and there's a lovely seating area at the back of the cottage which gets the sun until late evening and there's a small well kept garden to the side. It's a little gem of a cottage and for sure I will be going back. Thank you Darrin & Vicky for a fabulous few days
"The cottage was amazing."
Beautifully decorated all amenities were were there. Shops and beach really close . Dog walks Hosts were exceptional so friendly they allowed are children to play and feed the animals and my foster son even got to sit on the tractor . We would definitely recommend. They even made the fire up for on arrival so we just had to Chuck a match in .. welcome pack was lush too biscuits went in about 5sec (4kids) We will hopefully be returning .
"Extremely satisfied with the cottage and the owners went above and beyond to ..."
Extremely satisfied with the cottage and the owners went above and beyond to make us feel welcome will definitely visit again
"All so very easy, searching for a cottage, booking, information given for arrival & departure."
On arrival the cottage exceeded all our expectations. The owners were amazing with our welcome package & nothing was too much trouble. They welcomed us to roam around the farm whenever we liked & let the children interact with the animals. Clean, cosy & comfortable. A great location as quiet central to some amazing beaches. Best of all a great walk up to the cliff tops of cleveland way, view was so worth the trek. Highly recommend this holiday home to anyone.
"We would never book any holiday except via Sykes in future."
We are regulars and each cottage we book exceeds expectations and this was no exception. Spotlessly clean, everything we could possibly need and the owners on hand for any unexpected problems. We can highly recommend this cottage. Only minus was the directions given by Sykes. This cottage is on the side of the main road A174 and actually could not be easier to find!
"A very cosy/comfortable cottage with very welcoming hosts."
There are footpaths close by and a bus stop on the doorstep,- very useful for linear walks along the coast, as on the main bus route. The welcome pack of goodies was unexpected and very welcome -a nice thoughtful touch. We had everything we needed and would return here.
"Lovely cottage,beautiful part of our country."
Excellent host ,a big thank you to Darrin and Vicky for helping make our holiday memorable.
"Wonderful Place to Stay Lovely place to stay, cosy and comfortable, furnishings throughout and a nice surprise welcome pack on arrival."
The Landlords were very friendly and welcoming, and were on hand if needed (all was great for us though apart from me leaving one item behind and having to go back for it). Can't say enough nice things about the place and its great location for exploring the North Yorkshire Moors and Cost Line , we covered from Redcar down to Scarborough and the moors in between however some form of transport is required either your own or local Buses (Bus stop right outside the door). Would definitely recommend this to everyone and would love to visit again in the future.

Found between the bustling town of Loftus and Easington, a short drive away from the majestic landscape of the North Yorkshire National Park is Foulsyke Farm Cottage.
This charming, semi-detached property is the perfect base for families or a last minute break for a group of friends to spend some quality time together and explore all that this part of Yorkshire has to offer.
There are 22 acres to roam in with goats, pigs, chickens and horses, and lots of outdoor space for children to run around in.
Admire the character of the stone-built property before stepping through the stable door and into the kitchen/diner, where the charm of the property is still apparent.
Look forward to catering your own culinary delights within the spacious kitchen, where you can pack a picnic for tomorrow’s adventure or have a special treat bake in the electric oven.
Within the kitchen you will find a washing machine and a dishwasher, as well as a dining space to enjoy your home-cooked meals with all your loved ones around you.
Moving through the property will bring you to the sitting area, where a seating arrangement is positioned in front of a Smart TV and a woodburning stove, offering a relaxing space to unwind after an action-packed day.
Heading up the stairs, you will find three elegantly-appointed bedrooms, comprising of a king-size bedroom and two double bedroom, making an ideal set up for groups of couples, families or friends.Foulsyke Farm has its very own bus stop at the bottom of the lane, the Arriva X4 route can take you south to Whitby 14 miles away or North 18 miles to Middlesbrough.
If you can tear yourself away from this dwelling, head into to nearby town of Loftus, where a whole host of amenities awaits you, including convenience shops, pubs, restaurants and takeaways, catering to all needs.
For days out, venture to Saltburn-by-the-Sea to enjoy a traditional day by the seaside, where you can laze on the glorious sands or soak up the views of the sea during a ride on the Saltburn Cliff tramway.
Alternatively, head in the other direction and spend time in the charming seaside village of Staithes where you can walk Yorkshire's cliff top paths or enjoy the delights of rock pooling and fossil hunting on the village’s small beach.
A public footpath runs alongside the farm which leads to The Cleveland Way, less than a mile away.
Where the farm path joins the Cleveland Way is at the top of some of the highest cliffs on the east coast with spectacular views to the north towards Saltburn and the south towards Staithes.
However before you reach the cliffs you will walk past Street House Farm where archaeologists discovered a Neolithic long cairn dating from 3300BC.
The site contains the Saxon Princess bed burial, one of only a dozen known in the UK and certainly the most northernly, as the majority are on the south coast.
Spectacular artefacts were discovered buried with the princess including gold set scallop shaped jewels which are now on permanent display at nearby Kirkleatham Museum.
A scenic car journey along the coastline will take you to the resort town of Whitby which plays to a superb selection of amenities and attractions including the ruined Abbey which overlooks the coast and reached by the famous 199 steps and the Captain Cook Memorial Museum.
Foulsyke Farm Cottage is an outstanding holiday cottage in Yorkshire, that the whole family can enjoy.
