  • "Stayed for bank holiday weekend."

    House was okay.Beds were clean and a nice sitting area in the garden. We were aware before we travelled there was a wine bar next door but hadnt realised how loud the music would be.We couldnt get to sleep before midnight.There was a band on one night and a DJ the next.It thumped through the wall and we struggled to even watch the tv.

  • "Good family holiday let."

    Plenty of room for children and families. Facilities were adequate, ie essentials kitchen equipment available. Location for us was good, near the beach and shops.

  • "I stayed here with my 5 kids whose age range is 4-16."

    Unfortunately one of the bedrooms wasn't made up for us so we had to work around that straight off. Also, as has been said in other reviews, the house wasn't as clean as I would like - the cutlery drawer, cups, toilets and couches were of particular concern for me. There also needs to be a book with info on how things work, the TV wouldn't switch on for example (remote didnt seem to work) and eventually I found a button on it. I needed to put the heating on one morning as we were really cold, had to figure that out - there is a gas fire in the lounge but I didnt want to touch that! This all said, the house worked for us; it’s ideally situated within the little town and we were very happy enough staying here for a week. I would recommend it.

    No book found of what to do etc. Could do with a barbecue. Fire alarms are very sensitive when toaster and oven rings are on making breakfast. Kept going off. Love the place though for our family get together. 2nd time been at house and will definitely return again next year

  • "The house and garden is lovely and spacious."

    Even with 8 of us we weren't on top of each other. It was a squeeze for us all to eat together round the table but we managed. It just wasn't cleaned well enough before our arrival. The kitchen floor was mucky and there was dust built up with lots of dog hair especially under settee's and beds. There was a poster on the wall saying due covid all the floors had been thoroughly cleaned sadly this was not the case. The cooker inside was also not very clean. There was even a greasy tray left inside. We couldn't turn the heating off by the dial so phoned the contact number who helped us. Turned out to be broken so we were advised to change the boiler setting to hot water only which worked fine. It wasn't cold so wasn't a problem. The beds were a little hard for our taste but very generous in size, the pillows are comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with everything we needed and it was a lovely gesture to be provided with milk, bread and chocolates. No parking at the property but we got got parked on a street down the road not too far away. We would definitely stay here again.

    We are terribly sorry for this issue you had to experience during your stay. This is most definitely not to our normal standards. Due to urgent family circumstances, we were unable to tend to the property and check on the changeover and our usual cleaner was not in operation at the time, therefore, we had a to rely on a cleaner that we have never used before. We have since arranged for a plumber to tend to the property a replace the thermostat to prevent this happening again. Our existing cleaner is back in operation and we are confident this would not happen again. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and for your thoughts. We would love to welcome you back again in the future! Property Owner

  • "Fantastic cottage."

    Towards the beach end of hornsea, opposite is a large park to walk the dogs in, with children's play area. The cottage is well furnished with everything you need. Having a down stairs bedroom toilet and shower was great for my wife as she has athritus and has difficultly getting up and down stairs. The kitchen is well equipped with tools and cutlery that work. All sorts of shops around great location and the owners are only a phone call away if you have any problems. Haye already booked to again next year and really looking forward to it.

  • "The house was in a really good location for the beach and town center."

    There is a nice garden area and a useful staorage area for bikes etc. The house was well equipped, just could do with a colander ( it was broken) a sieve, washing up bowl and some more pads to put hot pans on. The oven needs to be on for quite a well before it starts to cook. Although the showers were hot enough it was difficult for both showers, others taps to be used at the same time, the water pressure seemed to effect this. Having a bedroom down stairs was great because the dog could sleep near and so we didn't need to worry about keeping her downstais. The beds were very comfy, we slept really well. Although it is only loading and unloaing outside there are 2 car parks near by. One was free at the time we needed. Opposite there is a lovely park which was great for dog walking and for the children. The beaches are good. Dog friendly beach near by. The fish and chip shops have good opening times and there is a dog friendly cafe practically next door. It would have been useful to have some information available ( ususally there is a book with info in i.e. stop tap in case of emergencies etc) but I believe that there is someone near by in case of emergencies like that. We would recommend both Sykes and this property. ( Customers just need to be made aware of the £150 bond so that they can plan for that in case of any problems).

  • "There were 2 smart TVs, not 5 as advertised."

    There is now only one free carpark opposite to the left which is very small and always full. The other to the right is now a maximum stay of 3 hours with no return within an hour. Ended up paying for parking 10 minutes walk away from the property. Books, games cushions and throws had not been removed which we expected would have been due to Covid. These are the negatives but all in all we had a lovely stay in Hornsea although the weather was not as good as it has been.

  • "We spent a week here in August 2020, 8 of us with ages ranging from 6 – 67."

    Hornsea is a lovely little town and the weather was sunny and warm which made all the difference. Parking is free if you can get in the small car park across the road; if not it’s pay and display or find a free space on a road five minutes’ walk away. The beach is a 10 minute walk, a large park with fab skate park and lovely play area is just across the road behind the church, the town is right on the doorstep and the Mere is only a ten minute walk away. The house was a slight disappointment, a bit cobwebby and dusty on arrival which was surprising during Covid times, and then we found things weren’t working – broken clothes horse and kitchen knife, dirty barbeque, no bulbs for the stand alone lamp in the lounge, a few rickety garden chairs and no hairdryer (after apparently one blew up a while back), only 2 TVs after advertising 5 on the Sykes website, limited kitchen crockery, a lack of bedside tables and bedside lights and thick winter duvets on beds in the height of summer left us feeling the owners could make so much more of the house if they chose to, but the location was perfect.

    Roomy house and very comfy beds. Cleaning of furniture and some kitchen ovenware disappointing. Overall a nice post-lockdown holiday!

    This was an unusual situation with the Coronavirus and shortage of food, but we still had a fantastic time in Hornsea. Did not use public transport but used the pubs, cafes and restaurants but made sure we were away from everyone. Lovely walks from the house to the beach and around the town and bird sanctuary. Everyone in Hornsea are so friendly, will be back next year to experience the surrounding areas.

    It has been tastely updated to provide very spacious comfortable accommodation. It sleeps 8 in 4 double rooms. It is dog friendly our dog Baxter had a great time especially with enclosed rear garden. The garden is a sun trap. Unexpected positives where huge main bedroom with large screen smart tv. Another similar tv in sitting room complete with 3 seatees. There was a washing machine and line in garden. It is situated in center of Hornsea close to shops,cafes,pubs restaurants. Easy walk to beach and Mere. The owner was very helpful and quickly sorted a small problem we had. This is our forth holiday to Hornsea we have always had good accommodation but NEWBEGIN COTTAGE is top of list especially at present prices.

  • "Just returned from this beautiful cottage we stayed 3 nights in the 4 bedroom property."

    It’s very spacious and has some lovely pieces of furniture. There is a lovely garden at the back of the property which was a sun trap and was lucky with the weather so we we were able to make the most of it. There’s a lovely lounge with 3 sofas and a huge television that offered sky, plus free use of the Internet was much appreciated. 2 bathrooms certainly come in handy when there is more than one couple. We met the owner who was friendly and helpful a welcome pack was available with tea, coffee, milk bread and much more but if you require more there is a co-op supermarket opposite and a bakery close by. There’s lots to do in the town with the beach close by and lots of restaurants and bars and shops. Further afield you can get to Beverley, Bridlington Hull and many other places of interest. We thoroughly enjoyed our break and would return
