  • "Perfect location close to the amenities."

    Enjoyed it very much and I have already booked next year.

  • "Firstly weather was exceptional, which always helps."

    Cottage is ideally placed for all local amenities, and garden is ideal for relaxing. As I said to Steve prior to leaving, we never return to same venue. In this instance however, we will make an exception. Total brilliant experience, great town and superb cottage. Thanks to both Paula and Steve.

    Aww you guys. Thankyou! You’ve made my day. Enjoy the rest of the summer and see you next time!! Take care x Property Owner

  • "Little daisy cottage was a lovely place to stay, close to beach shops and pubs/ places to eat and I have never seen a more dog friendly seaside than Hornsea just brilliant."

    Fish and chips Lilly’s, Sullivan’s, and Whiteheads all spot on, Med Mex bar and restaurant very nice. Back to our lodge. Although we don’t do much cooking on holiday but could not find a small pan also the shower above the bath seems a strange bracket/ holder. My wife our dog Molly and myself will be back at Little Daisy Cottage later this year. Regards Gordon, Cathy and Molly

    Hi Gordon and Co! Thankyou for staying with us and I’m so happy you will return again. We love life in Hornsea so always delighted when you enjoy the town to. Apologies re the smaller size pan. I’ve dropped extra ones off this week so Thankyou for bringing that to my attention. Sadly I can’t change the shower bracket / holder. It was designed by The Yorkshire Kitchen company for the property’s previous owner and it’s quite contemporary! Mind you we do like quirky you should see my Darceys in the Yard B and B Shower Room!! (For anyone reading the reviews we always ask all guests to shout us with anything they find missing or that they particularly need whilst with us. We live closely by in the Market Place so can pop any time to help and I realise each guest will have different requirements. The only thing we can’t help with is the weather!!) Glad Molly had fun. Hornsea is so dog friendly isn’t it. Thankyou both to for leaving the house so very tidy I could hardly tell you had stayed!! We Look forward to welcoming you next time and Thankyou again for your feedback I’m really grateful ! Take care for now Paula x Property Owner

  • "A wonderful week away in a lovely cottage, this is the 2nd time staying here and this time was made even better with the addition of the hot tub which we used daily."

    Paula & Steve are lovely hosts and can't do enough for you without being intrusive. Everything is catered for in this cottage and the beds are so comfy you don't want to get out in the morning. Our little dog Milo loved it too and settled in straight away, there is a lovely big park just across the road which he loved, and just a short walk to the beach. We will definately be back.

    Hi guys Thankyou so much for your lovely feedback. It was fab having the three of you back again. I hope you enjoy a happy rest of the summer and all take care. Love to Milo xxxxxxx Property Owner

    Comfy beds, quality bed linen and towels add a touch of luxury as well as the hot tub.The location is right in the heart of Hornsea, with everything in easy reach. Beautiful parks for dog walks, plenty of shops, cafes and pubs. The beach is also a leisurely walk away.

    Hi Alison Thanks a million for taking the time to review Little Daisy. I’m so happy you enjoyed your break. Hope to welcome you again in the future and wish you a happy rest of the summer xx Property Owner

  • "Daisy Cottage was very clean and comfortable."

    Yes it’s right in the town but this means you can leave the car behind walk to the pubs, restaurants and also the beach is close enough to walk as well. This was wonderful. Noise levels did not affect us in anyway, some days was slightly noisier than others but that’s to be expected in the town itself. The Hot tub was lovely and relaxing after exploring Hornsea and the surrounding area’s including Bridlington and Whitby, plus many more. Hornsea itself is a pretty place, very clean and friendly atmosphere. I would recommend Daisy Cottage for anyone that either likes to stay in one place and not use the car or to be used just as a lovely place as a base to explore surrounding area’s. There are many beautiful places to choose. Thanks for a wonderful stay Paula in Daisy Cottage.

    Hi Tina Thankyou so much for taking the time to review Daisy Cottage. I’m really grateful. Delighted you enjoyed your holiday and the town and surrounding area. Glad also you used the hot tub as it’s a new addition for us and it seems to be a popular one. Do enjoy the rest of the summer and take care Paula Property Owner

  • "Another stay in this lovely cottage."

    Spotlessly clean, extra thoughtful touches, everything you could need and more. Shops, tearooms, pubs and parks all nearby. Close to a busy road, but we were certainly not disturbed by the traffic noise. Paula and Steve couldn't be more helpful. Looking forward to our next visit.

    Hi Julie. Thankyou so very much for your kind words. So glad all was ok for you both. Thankyou for leaving the cottage so very clean it’s really appreciated. Look forward to welcoming you next time and I hope that you have a really happy summer xx Property Owner

  • "We have just returned from 7 nights at Little Daisy Cottage- first points were communication with Paula- she was fantastic- really made us feel welcome and provided so much information."

    The pack in the house was great too with so much in the way of tips for places to go. The house itself was super clean, the hot tub amazing and the outside garden was perfectly enclosed for our dog and children. Space to hang washing out was really good too. The house is right next to a main road- the listing does mention this- earplugs were a must as the road is very busy. However this meant the location was perfect for exploring without having to drive - the park across the road was great and it was nice to be able to walk to places in Hornsea including the beach and the Mere. Off road secure parking was a bonus also. The house itself was super clean, the beds really comfy and it was really homely. We really enjoyed using the house as a base to explore the amazing East coast and surrounding area. To then return home to the hot tub was perfect. Negative points for us was the shower was terrible- really low pressure. Also the house could do with more kitchen items like baking trays and cooking items (pizza cutter, tongs, fish slice, large spoon). It was also the first cottage we've stayed in where only 1 roll of loo roll was provided per bathroom. The curtains in all 3 bedrooms were lightweight so by 5.30am both children were wide awake as they're used to dark black out curtains at home. Really minor tweaks would make this home 10/10.

    Hi Ella. Thankyou for the kind review. Glad you found Daisy Cottage cosy and clean and that you all enjoyed Hornsea and the area. I do wish you had called me re the shower as the water pressure isn’t low there is just a knack to turning it on. As we live closely by I always ask all guests to call me or let me know if they need anything so again had you requested extra oven trays I would have popped them round. Apologies re the fish slice. It actually was burned the previous week and I completely forgot to replace it when I had to throw it out So ive popped a new one in now. Great you always take your own black out blinds on your travels. If you do like a pitch black bedroom then that’s a great idea. The curtains in the two smaller rooms are Laura Ashley fabric and lined but don’t act as blackouts. The ones in the master bedroom are raw silk and heavily lined so should have offered more in the way of keeping the daylight out but again good job you always travel with your own blinds. Finally I do wish we could stop the traffic causing noise issues. It has definitely seemed to get worse in the last couple of years as the town has become so popular. Again we do mention this on the info page and for anyone reading in the property is located in the Hornsea town centre so should you need peace and quiet then Daisy is not for you. Luckily most regulars don’t find this a problem as they like the location as so easy to explore etc and Thankyou Ella for pointing that out. Enjoy the rest of your summer. Take care Paula Property Owner

  • "March 2022 - Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short as the road noise was just too much for me and our cat who also came on holiday with us, to bear."

    Not living close to a main road, had no idea of the noise level or proximity of the traffic to the front window, had to keep the curtains closed so the cat didn't have a nervous breakdown. We also didn't use the hot tub, because it wasn't relaxing being in the garden again due to noise. Not any fault of the lovely owners or Sykes Cottages, the property listing does state that there is road noise, I just didn't realise how much. We also had an issue with the en-suite shower, didn't feel very safe as it's a flat even surface and therefore slippy, maybe pop a shower mat in that bathroom. The above aside, the property is lovely, warm and welcoming inside and the main bedroom bed is so comfy.

    Hi there. I am so dreadfully sorry that your cat and yourself were disturbed by traffic noise. I do realise that the cottage is a town centre property and do appreciate that Hornsea is a busy popular little seaside town hence there will be traffic. Hence we do as you say mention this on our property description so that people are aware of the location. Possibly a country cottage would be a better option when bringing a cat whereas Daisy cottage is maybe suited more for dogs visiting as opposite the entrance to the Hallgarth Park. Shame you couldn’t use the hot tub as it is in the rear garden and very private but again I do appreciate your comments regarding traffic in the market place. At certain times of the day I know the town gets busy. We live closely by in The Market Place and you either love a busy town centre location to be able to easily reach shops cafes the beach etc or you need a more peaceful location. Hence we realise our cottage is not for people needing total peace and quiet. Thank you for your kind words about the property I am so glad you liked the bed and found it warm and welcoming. That’s very nice to hear. Just for anyone reading your review and worrying re the en suite we haven’t had any other comments about the shower tray but to put minds at rest we do provide a bath mat. It is located in the bathroom cupboard in the family bathroom as we dont have any storage cupboard in the en suite. Many thanks for the review as I am always grateful for feedback and sorry that our Little Daisy isn’t the right holiday cottage for you. I do hope that your next break is more successful and wish you a very happy summer. X Property Owner

  • "Not suitable for five people."

    Very noisy road. Steep outside step. Only 2 dining chairs.

    Dear Mr and Mrs Barber. Thank you firstly for the kind text message you left as you vacated Little Daisy House. You mentioned you had enjoyed a lovely holiday which was nice to hear. Thank you also for leaving the cottage so tidy following your two weeks with us. It was appreciated Sorry I didn't get to say hello to you or to Ralph your doggie but I fully understood your concerns re health issues especially at this difficult time with the Covid virus still causing problems. I am a tiny bit surprised and saddened by your review as after receiving your message I had thought things were fine however it appears you didn't enjoy the property after all. I am truly sorry for this as we honestly would do anything possible to ensure our guests have a happy break in Hornsea. I did have a chat this week with Sykes following your comments and requested that although their property description already stated the house is located in a seaside town and close to amenities that they stress a little extra that you will have traffic noise in a town centre environment so I hope that helps future guests when deciding if our holiday home is the right one. We live very closely to Little Daisy House so we do understand that a town centre option is so different from a countryside option. We love it as enjoy the close access to Hallgarth park Hornsea Mere and shops cafes and pubs but we realise it's not for everyone and if you are noise sensitive then best to search another area outside of the Market Place. I also have requested that Sykes point out that although Little Daisy has large bedrooms and adequately sleeps five people the downstairs is smaller. We always hope the cuteness coziness and standard of cleanliness helps a little in this regard. We do actually have five dining chairs in the house. Three downstairs and two upstairs. When I receive a larger group booking I always mention this in my welcome chat however as you were two people and a dog I didn't think you would need the upstairs chairs bringing down so my apologies for that if you did. I note on the property description it mentions a dining table and it actually is just a small wooden kitchen table so I have requested this to be amended. You can actually see a photo of the table in the property page for future guests. With regards to the step being steep I m truly sorry you struggled. It is a raised area but does have a normal width step upto it and in all honestly I the step hasn't been mentioned by previous guests. We decided this year that the decking wasn't the best thing in the world when wet or icy so we had a specialist company lay artificial grass over it. This we feel is much safer as even when wet it doesn't get very slippery Sadly I can't change the step as too large a job to remove all the decking grass and hot tub. I will though take our builder to see if there's any way we can use a handle grip or pole on the fence. Not sure how it can be done but we promise to try. I do hope my message puts your minds at rest that we always have our guests best interests at heart and We wish you a happy healthy rest of 2021 Property Owner

    Kitchen was well stocked and modern, and the house was well looked after. The downstairs is maybe a little small for 5 people to enjoy a meal together (the table in the kitchen can hold 3, or everyone could go in the lounge), but the outside patio would be lovely in the summer. We went as 2 adults and 2 kids, and it was a great base for exploring the area. The owner, Paula, was also very helpful and quick to respond to any queries. Thanks!

The property

Situated in the heart of the popular seaside resort of Hornsea, this is a lovely, link-detached property, Little Daisy Cottage.

Well-equipped for a family retreat, the cottage offers all the charm for a memorable holiday exploring the attractive coastline and rolling countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds.

Step into Little Daisy Cottage and enter straight into the comforting sitting room, the plush sofas and fireplace make a relaxing setting, with a large flatscreen TV to complete the room.

The kitchen is appointed with everything needed to rustle up a delicious feast, which can be enjoyed in the pleasant courtyard.

Head upstairs to find the three bedrooms, including the master bedroom with a king-size and en-suite shower room, as well as a double and single.

After a day of exploring the beautiful coastline, look forward to a relaxing soak in the bath, accompanied by an overhead shower so you can decide which you prefer.

Little Daisy House sits in the market place of Hornsea, a busy though small East Yorkshire coastal town.

Located close to shops, pubs, cafes and the lovely Hallgarth Park the property is also just a ten minute walk to the beach.

The beautiful Hornsea Mere, Yorkshires largest fresh water lake, is only a five minute walk away.

Hornsea is a fantastic holiday location, with a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants within short walking distance of the cottage.

Less than a mile away is a sandy beach and elegant promenade, where you can enjoy an afternoon stroll whilst tucking into some traditional fish and chips!

Enjoy the long sandy beaches or stroll along the elegant promenade before dinner, plus visit nearby Hornsea Mere, with its various water sport activities.The RSPB reserve at nearby Bempton is well worth a visit, with its colonies of nesting birds, and for a little culture there are numerous stately homes within easy reach of this Hornsea holiday cottage, including Burton Agnes Hall and Sledmere House.

Further places of interest can be found throughout the chalk landscapes of the Yorkshire Wolds or in the bustling town of Bridlington.

This wonderful Hornsea cottage is well-placed to enjoy all the delights of the local area.
