  • "Great location, very secure and good value for money."

    Great for visiting York as only 5 mins from park and ride. Close enough to the village if you want to use local pub facilities but private enough. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and appreciate the little touch of a glass of wine and cream tea. The only reason for awarding 10 out of 10 is that we could have done with a little more equipment in the kitchen as we do prepare a lot of food in the cottage due to a special diet. Ie better knives and a washing up bowl.

  • "Good holiday accommodation, very clean and functional, close to York and area activities."

    Only issue was that it would be better is the Shower/bath had a couple of grab rails. We had my 94 yr old Father-in-law so showering was pretty much impossible for him. A walk-in shower would have worked much better, and consumed less space in the bathroom.

  • "Apple tree cottage was in a lovely quiet location and was beautifully designed and well though out."

    It was very clean and had everything we needed including a really helpful welcome file and welcome pack of milk, scones and jam and a bottle of wine despite only booking approx 2 hours before we arrived ! Arrival and leaving was easy with the key safe and electric gate. I really quiet and relaxing holiday - just what we needed!

  • "Thank you for a lovely stay."

    The cottage was cosy and warm throughout. All very modern and high spec; felt very secure with the key fob and electric gate. We asked for a high chair and cot which were provided with no problems at all. Bathroom very modern and lovely shower! The cottage is very close to a Park and Ride for York city centre. Some lovely pubs nearby and fish and chip shop. Would definitely recommend for families of up to 4.

  • "We arrived to a spotlessly clean, warm and cosy cottage."

    The owner's had left us a cream tea and two small bottles of wine which was a lovely and very unexpected touch. There was even milk in the fridge for a cup of tea! The facilities in the cottage were fabulous and meant that life was made very easy and it felt like a real holiday. Would thoroughly recommend!

  • "We have been using Sykes Cottages for a few years now and the Apple Tree cottage is by far the best property we have stayed in to date, the hosts are extremely friendly and welcoming, the property is ideally situated for visiting York and surrounding areas."

    I would highly recommend this property for anyone visiting York.

  • "This is part of two cottages and the only one with its own patio."

    The decor is very modern and spotless. The owners are very friendly but leave you to enjoy your break. The location is ideal for York, use the park and ride, and Bridlington is well worth a visit. Nearby Pocklington is also one to explore and the York Air Museum is just up the road. We had two cars and there is plenty of parking and an electronic gate keeps everything safe. The welcome pack of wine, milk, scone with butter and jam was a nice surprise and something you don’t normally even at more expensive cottages.
