  • "Faultless. The cottage was spotlessly clean, comfortable and equipped better than any other we’ve ever stayed it ( and we’ve stayed in a lot!"

    ) Communication by Sykes and the owner was superb. The cottage is perfectly located and we had the most amazing week there. The heating ( that I noticed was complained about) is fine as long as you understand the system and how it’s suppose to work. No real negative comments to make. Downsides ( which aren’t a reflection on the owner and we were aware of most upon booking, but worth noting for others to be aware of) - It is slightly precarious pulling on the driveway with where the cottage is located on the lane. - We left the bin out as instructed but the council didn’t empty it (was already very nearly full when arrived) It meant having to leave a couple of bags of rubbish on top of the bin, which we felt bad to do but didn’t have time to do anything else with it. - The bathroom upstairs is the en-suite to the twin bedroom so meant tip toeing in at 1am! Was fine for us but if you are staying with separate families, might be a bit awkward. P.S if you intend to have a BBQ, get some utensils. That was the only thing we couldn’t find. Overall, absolutely fantastic stay at Wyke Lodge.

  • "The rug in the living room needs a slip matt underneath."

    The cottage is lovely and clean and spacious. I feel for the money you pay your welcome basket in the kitchen could do with improvement, it was just tea and coffee. Nothing for the kids, not even a biscuit!!, if you have travelled a long way and you're waiting for your shopping to be delivered it would be nice. We also had no wood or coal; at the end of the week, it was colder and would have been nice. The facilities are great, lovely location. great information and communication.

    Thank you for your feedback, we will speak with our housekeeper and ensure that biscuits, wood and coal are always left out, we do supply these so apologies that these were not present upon your arrival. We’re glad that you had a good stay and hope to see you again! Property Owner

    I am disabled and though I did manage the stairs the two steps to the upstairs bathroom proved more difficult as there was nothijng to hold onto. I also found the toilets rather low, my husband who is 6ft 2 also had a problem!! Apart from this the cottage was super and could not find fault with anything else.

    Needs a little bit of tlc eg. Paint in lounge scuffed and chipping off wall looks like a bit of damp. Personal preference I know but didn't like the memory foam mattress in main bedroom. But on plus side there's plenty of room and it's lovely and clean. All in all a lovely break away .

    Thank you for your feedback, we’re glad you enjoyed your stay! We will get the paint touched up during the next maintenance visit, thank you for bringing to our attention. Property Owner

  • "Nice cottage, very quiet and peaceful and a good base for exploring coast."

    The cottage was very clean. It has no garden which may be a draw back to some. Parking is a bit tricky as either side is a blind bend and blind hill so care is needed when going into drive. Not that we saw much traffic. We had a cool week and the c/heating is not very efficient with some radiators not getting very warm. The kitchen was the most sparse I have ever seen and we have stayed in many cottages. No salt and pepper, no oven gloves and nothing left from previous tenants. Not even any cleaning products. Some of the oven trays and pans were a bit past there best. If your self catering you need to take everything you will need.

    Thank you for your feedback, we’re glad that you enjoyed your stay and the cleanliness, peace and quiet of the cottage. We’re sorry about the cleaning products and oven gloves, these are typically provided and will ensure our housekeeping leave out. We hope to see you again! Property Owner

  • "The bedroom configuration is a bit awkward."

    The couple needed a bathroom in the night so slept with the en suite. The single beds were a bit tricky, bedding falling off and one of us was seriously under the eaves! The single guest had to use the bathroom downstairs or also have a single bed. Rest of house was comfortable and well equipped. Bit chilly but weather was wintry.

    Thank you for your feedback, we’re pleased that you had a great time at Wyke Lodge Cottage, and hope you visit again soon! Property Owner

    We were walking the coastal section from Saltburn-On-The-Sea to Filey and were able to start three days walking within a 10 minute drive from the house. The accomodation was warm and spacious with a well equipped kitchen. Thanks for sorting out the problem with the hot water quickly.

    Thank you for your feedback! We are glad that you had a great time at Wyke Lodge Cottage! The hot water tap in the kitchen had developed "water hammer" so was banging in the pipework, all now resolved and thank you for letting our plumber access during your stay.

  • "We had a lovely time in this lovely cottage which is in a great position to explore the east coast of Yorkshire."

    Lots to do indoors if the weather is bad with games and DVD’s. Good selection of tourist information (which I have added too) and reading comments in the visitors book we had plenty to fill our week. Had a small problem with the gates but this was rectified within minutes by the owner thank you very much for your prompt attention. Bed was comfortable and the living room cosy with the fire going. The heating was a bit intermittent and I would say as the weather gets colder you do need the fire in the living room.

    Thank you for your feedback! We are pleased to hear that you had a lovely time and loved the cottage! The battery in the key- fob to the gates had died so glad we could sort that quickly with a replacement fob. Our heating system is on a Nest thermostat, so once it attains the requisite temperature it goes off, so may seem intermittent as it comes on and off during the day. 100% agreed with the open fire, that is the best way to heat the cottage in the winter months. Hope to see you again soon! Property Owner

  • "This was not a cheap holiday in comparison to similar, sadly, standards have slipped since our previous visit pre pandemic."

    On arrival, a small bucket of coal was supplied but no kindling, paper or matches (the supplied firelighter was empty). So, another visit back to Scarborough was necessary. Owner informed us that this was an oversight. We discovered that the washing machine was literally about to expire, making the most terrible noise and clothes coming out with grubby marks (not there when put in the machine). Owner informed us that he will get this replaced. The bathroom was in need of an overhaul (unfilled holes in the tiles where blinds/curtains had been removed). Owner informed us that the overhaul will be done later in the year. One of the bicycles had a flat tyre so they were no use to us. Forgot to mention this to the owner in my email sent about the above. We are not sure, but believe that the fridge may also be about to expire as the temperature inside seemed irregular - milk went off on a couple of occasions (even though we turned the setting up). On a minor note, the welcome pack was pretty miserly - cheap biscuits, previously opened coffee (leftovers?) and no tea. We have had much nicer ‘welcomes’ from cottages where we paid far less and for shorter stays. It’s the little things that matter. On a positive note (although our experience was overshadowed by the above) this is still a lovely cottage in a super location. We did have a wonderful holiday (helped with the beautiful weather) and would consider returning but would keep an eye on the reviews. Nearby, Bryherstones pub is well worth a visit - booking advisable. We visited twice and each time the food and service were fabulous. In Scarborough, Harbour Bar Italian ice cream parlour (down on the sea front) is amazing, we visited 4 times during our stay. We had considered revisiting the Alpemare water park but on discovering that a 3 hour stay for £18 per adult was a bit excessive so didn’t bother. In Whitby, Sherlocks cafe is well worth a visit - lovely drinks and food with really nice and friendly service and a nice ‘oldie-worldie’ ambiance. If you fancy a cocktail, Harry’s (near the fish market) or Macy Brown’s (near to the Station) are worth popping in. In Pickering, Botham’s tea room (opposite the station) is also well worth a visit for fabulous cake and sandwiches as well as friendly service.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you consider the cottage lovely and in a super location. We have now replaced both the washing machine and the fridge with new appliances. Unfortunately we had had to use an alternative housekeeper for your stay due to illness, and they had not updated the welcome pack and starter pack for the fire in line with our usual standards, hopefully you will stay with us again and this will not be repeated. The downstairs bathroom is scheduled for an overhaul, and will be done in late 2022/early 2023, subject to contractor availability. Property Owner

    Other than that we enjoyed our stay.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We have changed the pans in the kitchen and replaced the sockets in the dining room.

  • "Wyke Lodge is a lovely cottage in a quiet location, and a good base for Whitby, Scarborough, Robin Hoods Bay etc."

    The interior is quite spacious but the kitchen and ground floor bathroom are in need of an update. The patio area at the rear is very small, and not totally enclosed, which was a concern for us as we have two dogs and the cottage is situated on a busy road. There was no welcome, or information pack so we had no way of contacting the owner had anything went wrong during our stay, also there was only one door key and electric gate fob, which meant our party of four couldnt go anywhere seperately, and had to go everywhere together. Overall though we enjoyed our week at Wyke Lodge but not sure if we'd go back.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We email out our welcome booklet which is also in the property, and Sykes are available for any urgent queries. There is a key safe on the property with the code so keys can be left if people wish to go out separately. Hope to see you again in the future! Property Owner

    Cottage on the whole was beautiful but could benefit from a bit of TLC downstairs. Spacious and well equipped for all types of groups, the upstairs bathroom was a welcome retreat with roll tap bath and ambient lighting. Enclosed patio garden and parking was also a plus for our 2 cars and to keep the dogs safe. Would recommend and visit again.

The property

This 100-year-old stone built detached former coach house lies on the edge of the small scattered village of Staintondale, between Scarborough and Whitby.

Set within the North York Moors National Park, it is an ideal base for families or groups of friends to explore both the nearby dramatic coastline and the stunning surrounding scenery.

Inside, there is a welcoming sitting room, with a crackling open fire and character beams.

The separate dining room has a stone flagged floor and large glass patio doors, while the well-equipped country style kitchen is perfect for preparing tasty family meals.

With a ground floor single bedroom and bathroom, and an en-suite off the twin room, this charming property caters for all needs.

Outside, there is a small rear patio, ideal for guests to sit and relax with a morning coffee, before heading off for the day.

From the door, there are excellent walking and cycling opportunities, with the 23 mile Cinder Track just down the road and the clifftop Cleveland Way Trail just a little further.

The nearby traditional coastal resort of Scarborough is a delight, where the family can enjoy the classic seaside fun of building sandcastles, paddling in the sea, donkey rides and tackling candy floss, as well as trying your hand at surfing.

Stroll along the promenade, climb up to the castle ruins, or wander around the pretty gardens, including Peasholm Park.

The fresh sea air will whet your appetite and there is plenty of choice, with cafes, bistros and good restaurants to tempt you, along with renowned fish and chips.

With the spectacular scenery of the North York Moors to explore, plus Whitby and quaint coastal villages such as Robin Hood's Bay to visit, your first visit to Wyke Lodge Cottage won't be your last.

About the location

STAINTONDALE

Scarborough 8 miles; Robin Hood's Bay 10 miles; Whitby 13 miles.

Staintondale is a delightful scattered village on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, close to the coast. Midway between the fishing town of Whitby, with its famous Abbey, and the Spa town of Scarborough, with its theatres and entertainment, it is a haven of peace offering the best of both worlds. From Staintondale itself, a network of footpaths and bridleways can be enjoyed. A superb base from which to explore the region.
