  • "Ideal accommodation for walking the North Yorkshire Coast, with the coast path less than a mile away."

    Well laid out, comfortable and reasonably spacious with ample electric sockets, excellent shower, efficient and controllable heating, loads of kitchen storage areas, and good supply of cooking and household equipment. The owner was on hand to deal with any issues. TV reception was a bit variable, probably with the weather, and Wi-Fi a bit weak (5 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload at best), but it's a rural area so only to be expected. There are two neighbouring holiday lets on site, and a (well kept) caravan site, but Forest View is at the far end of the well-signposted winding cul-de-sac and enjoys the most privacy.

  • "This was probably the best small cottage I've ever stayed in as a solo weekend breaker, who spends their time hiding away from a busy life and writing."

    Whilst it's only a studio, it was spacious enough not to feel tight, and the tiny kitchen was better equipped than others I've experienced. One of my biggest hopes is always silence/minimum noise and again this was perfect. The highland cows made no trouble, and whilst I was aware that the unit next door was also in use, I never heard them through the walls, so good soundproofing? It felt like the owner had put great thought into the entire layout of creating this space, with many of the sockets even including USB ports. I think literally the only 'issue' I had was the shower. There was a big rain head and a smaller one attached to the pole and I could not figure out how to switch the flow from the smaller one to the large. It wasn't really a problem so I didn't call on the owner, but rather a 'huh' moment. Oh, and the drive entry is tight. I was relieved my car wasn't bigger as my sensors were going mad as I very carefully had to manoeuvre out (not so much going in?). This met my needs perfectly, though maybe it needs to be more clear that 'privacy' outside isn't what I'd class as private. You have your own dedicated parking space and picnic bench, but the neighbouring unit does also and only a low fence separates you. If both parties wanted to dine outside, you'd be just metres away more like in a pub garden. Not private-private. But I'd definitely book this again.

  • "Great accommodation but the accuracy of the description by Sykes disputed."

    We chose this lodge to be walking distance to a pub. NOT 2 minutes but 10. Also 15 minutes to the shop and bus route. So unless the car is used there is no access to anything if you are disabled. Correct your facts Sykes James the owner is so obligingly helpful and such a nice guy and not his fault Sykes aren’t getting their facts right

  • "Absolutely loved our stay."

    The accommodation was so clean and comfortable. The location was ideal to be able to walk between Robin Hoods bay and Scarborough . We walked different sections during our stay. One way along the cliff top/Cleveland Way and returned on the Cinder track. A brilliant place to recharge the batteries.

  • "This property was one of the most picturesque Sykes we have stayed at."

    Extra directions to assist with post code issues were very well done and we had no problem locating the site. The view over Scarborough bay was great on clear days Low light pollution reveals a wonderful night sky too. The cottage is on a working farm but the work did not intrude on our enjoyment of the cottage. The interior was very clean and well prepared with a welcome gift. We had everything we needed. The TV was large and worked well and was located so it could comfortably be watched. James, the host was just great; we could have taken him home with us. This cottage is in a very good tourist location for the north Yorkshire coast. We understand that some Highland cattle are due onto the site soon to occupy the field next to the cottage.

    It had everything we needed for a week's stay, and we looked forward to returning to this cosy retreat after a day's sightseeing. We were there in Winter, so didn't take full advantage of the outside space or walks to nearby pubs, although we did see wonderful sunsets and also deer from the garden. James is a fantastic host, and resolved a minor issue for us immediately. Cloughton is a great location to visit the North Yorks and Cleveland coasts from. Highly recommended.
