  • "Very well equipped cottage ."

    However you opened back door to a lane full of dust bins & front garden full of weeds where it was the only place to sit . In need of some TLC as previous man that visited said too

  • "Perfect location for exploring the area and walking the Cleveland Way."

    The cottage was extremely well equipped and the separate utility room was very useful. We highly recommend this cottage, it was spotlessly clean and the little extras on arrival were very much appreciated, thank you.

  • "Our family have thoroughly enjoyed a short break at Florence Cottage."

    It is an ideal location for exploring the coastline. Beautiful beaches such as Runswick Bay and Staithes are just a short drive or walk from the doorstep. We even spotted a seal at Runswick Bay when the tide came in. The local village pubs were closed but getting ready for opening soon. However, there were plenty of amenities, chip shops and quaint pubs a short drive away or hike away. The cottage is cosy and very well equipped. The outside utility was ideal for sandy boots, buckets and spades to be stored. The extra snug by the twin room upstairs was a great chill out space for our boys to watch a DVD at night. We particularly liked the ‘dos’ everywhere... ‘do make yourself at home’. The small patio space at the front of the property was a real sun trap. The boys were also delighted when 50 cows passed in the evening. Hinderwell has a lovely community feel and we can’t wait to visit again in the future.

  • "Lovely cottage, absolutely spotless."

    Care had obviously been taken with the furnishings and the welcoming eggs, milk and biscuits were really appreciated. Lovely to be able to make a cup of tea on arrival. Cottage situated in great spot to visit the coast and Hinderwell village was really nice.

  • "Sykes Cottages were very good and accommodated all the changes we had to make due to Covid19."

    Florence cottage was lovely, very comfortable and in an ideal location for exploring the local area and further afield. The cottage was very clean and very well equipped and the owners thought of everything really, from eggs bread and milk to toiletries and feminine personal hygiene products. The space upstairs was really great for our grandchildren and meant that they had a place of there own to enjoy TV while we 'oldies' had our own space for peace and quiet. Definitely recommended.

  • "A great little find."

    Looking for a short escape from the lockdown blues and this was a much better cottage than we expected. Great location for walking to Runswick Bay, Staithes or just the woodland inland.

  • "Florence Cottage is beautiful and I’ve never stayed anywhere so well equipped,the owners have thought of everything,I wasn’t expecting a washer and separate freezer but they’re was one in the little utility room attached to the front of the house as well as an iron and ironing board and even dog biscuits in the cupboard and dog bowls in the kitchen,they even had a slow cooker,some things were removed due to corona virus,dvds books etc but we didn’t miss them."

    On arrival we found milk and eggs in the fridge tea coffee sugar and a Yorkshire Brack cake on the side which was appreciated. I would love to go again

  • "A lovely comfortable cottage in a quiet lane in the pretty village of Hinderwell."

    Although the kitchen was a bit of a squeeze, the rest of the accommodation was spacious enough and everything was provided. Although a gin glass or two wouldn't have gone amiss. That's me being picky. Our 12-year-old son loved the attic space and extra room. Hinderwell is a great base for visiting all the other places along that part of the coast, has great walks as well as having 2 great pubs, fish and chips, and a very handy butcher/village shop. Everyone is so friendly and accomodating. We have visited the area several times before and will definitely be back.

    Large Rose's tin, Teabags Coffee and milk in the fridge, was amazing. Thankyou. Also a Christmas tree had been put up and decorated. Wonderful!!

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    The extra touches were appreciated. Local pubs were friendly and served great food. The only thing that could make it better would have been a more comfortable sofa.

  • "We were under the impression that we could park outside the cottage but you could only park there for unloading/loading the parking was further up the road."

    We only realised this the next day after going through the folder that tractors use the same lane and it was not a good idea to park there, you do get a card to put in the car. Apart from this we had a great holiday the Badger Hounds and The Brown Cow pubs do lovely food and very friendly, there are a couple of local beaches well a visit.

  • "The cottage was spotless, well stocked, beautiful decor, comfortable and peaceful."

    Hinderwell is such a peaceful, pleasant place. Chip shop, restaurants, all top class. Beatiful walks, Runswick Bay 5 minutes away was a superb find, a little gem. Neighbours were very friendly and very dog friendly everywhere we went. I came for a peaceful break due to having M.E. and enjoyed the whole experience, would love to come back and most likely will.
