  • "Lovely cottage and garden."

    Ideal if you have a dog! Good location for surrounding walks and beach. Good food at the pub across the road and the fish shop close by!

  • "Little cottage, set back off the main high street but perfectly positioned for fantastic walks, 2 pubs, chippy & butcher ( who does lots of other things to) ."

    The cottage was spotless, quality bedding and great range of usable utensils in the kitchen ( sharp knives/ decent pans) . The log burner in the lounge made for a cosy evening & the local garage sold more supplies. BbQ supplied was used, and the Spar on the road in to staithes sold coal. The garden was a sun trap and full of little birds. Christine the owner was so helpful, great communication and left a wonderful welcome pack…. Even with mixed weather we couldn’t fault it. A fabulous holiday that we hope to return to.

  • "Lovely cottage with a beautiful garden."

    Facilities met our needs for the week and then location was a perfect base to explore Whitby and the surrounding areas. The owner visited us on our first evening to make sure we had everything we needed and the welcome goodies were very much appreciated. Garden was safe for our dog and the outdoor seating was perfect for the gorgeous weather we had. Would definitely recommend and we’d love to return again!

    Lots of nice walks on the doorstep. Plus we were greeted with homemade jam, wine and snacks for the baby, so we were sold from the start. Highly recommended!!

  • "This is a great cottages well stocked with the utilities you need, with a lovely garden in a great location."

    Whilst it’s just outside some of the main beachside towns it’s only between a 2 and 4 min drive to Runswick bay or Staithes or you could just hop on the local bus which runs every hour. Make sure you take cash though as the large majority of shops and cafes are cash only

  • "We have stayed in quite a few Sykes cottages and this is one of the best."

    A very clean and comfortable cottage with a well equipped kitchen, sweet shower room with a lovely view and a most comfortable bed. The added bonus is the a south west facing private garden with superb wooden chairs and table. Big thank you to the owner for her thoughtful welcome gifts, particularly the delicious homemade jam! As we enjoyed mainly good sunny weather we spent quite a lot of time relaxing in the garden and it was great knowing the dog couldn't get out.. Hinderwell is a friendly village and a great base for visiting the many delightful beaches and tourist favourites near by.We enjoyed our week very much and would like to stay there again. Eleanor

  • "Brilliant holiday to Mill Cottage Hinderwell."

    The owner telephoned us 3 days prior to holiday to explain how to get the key and to answer any questions we may have had, this I thought was excellent as we were going to phone the day after. On arrival we were pleased with the accomodation and with a welcoming pack which included wines. The cottage was just as the pictures and write up stated on your website we were not disapointed. As this is our second time in a Sykes holiday accomodation we did not expect anything less. The cottage was clean and well laid out with all the essentials on hand very well equipped. Hinderwell is a good base for sighseeing in the area with places like Whitby, Redcar, Middlesborough. Scarborough on hand as well as the Steam Engines where we were able to view in the engine sheds and the home of Heartbeat where they carried out the filming. The Brown Cow over the road where we were able to take the dog and we ate there on several occasions as the food is good and the people very friendly, as with the butcher in the village who supplies the pub with meat which resulted in us bringing a good selection of top quality meat home. All in all we were extremely satisfied both my wife and I and her nephew as well as the dog who also enjoyed herself. Once again many thanks Pat & Dennis Casement

  • "The cottage was really lovely, clean, warm and very tidy."

    The garden was a bonus with us having a dog and we could let her out without any problems. The only thing i would suggest would be to have either a freezer or a freezer compartment within the fridge as we struggled to keep what we had frozen wise frozen. The 2 pubs which we thought we were near only on served food and the other was only open 3 nights in the week which ment we had to travel further afield for meals out. All in all it was perfect place to stay, just enough room and everything to hand. I think it is relatively new to the owners so it does take time to get everything right but so far they are doing a wonderful job. We would recommend the cottage to our friends and family and Sykes have done us proud once again.
