  • "Could not fault this cottage, the pictures do not do it justice."

    Simply amazing. Thank you so much for the most amazing stay, we 100% will be back. I have posted the cottage on my social media and people are already asking me where this is so hopefully they will come and stay with you too!!

  • "The property was near perfect for a multi generational celebration of my Mum’s 90th birthday."

    One or two minor points. Anti slip mats in the showers would have been useful. Electric whisk and mixing bowls would be useful We had a wonderful time and we’re very fortunate with the weather. Thank you very much.

  • "What a wonderful stay."

    The house is even more gorgeous than in the photographs! It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The owner & his cleaning and maintenance team were fab - super responsive and thorough. The added touches like having a complementary welcome pack, nice toiletries, and even charcoal for the BBQ was very much appreciated. The location is absolutely stunning, an incredible view & there was ample parking for our 3 big cars on the driveway. We very much enjoyed our visit and would definitely recommend this property.

  • "Absolutely amazing holiday."

    The location is perfect, the view from the picnic tables at the end of the garden is beautiful and inspiring. The house itself is lovely and it was a wrench to leave at the end of the week. Will definitely go again.

  • "For the first two days there was no hot water - however after having reported the problem, an engineer did attend and made a temporary repair allowing the heat pump to provide hot water."

    One of the bathrooms (the twin bedroom) needs the drain clearing as it appears partially blocked and the extractor fan does not work. The listing could mention that there is a games room in the garage - we didn't find out about it till later on in the holiday. Apart from those points, we enjoyed our stay, lovely part of the country.

    Appreciate your comments James, and so glad you were understanding with the hot water. This has now been fixed. We have also made our maintenance team aware of the drain and extractor fan, so that will be sorted in due course. We've also made Sykes aware that the games room isn't listed. Thanks Andy Property Owner

  • "A lovely house in a fantastic location."

    We were apprehensive after reading an online review about cleanliness but overall cleanliness was great with the exception of the kitchen floor and washing machine. The house smelt strongly of dogs and we had to keep the doors open, this seemed to be the carpet in the kitchen as it wasn't very clean. This could probably be easily avoided with a mop-able kitchen floor. We also cleaned out the washing machine which was dirty inside and had black grime on the inside of the door and sludge in the dispensing door. Just to feedback to the owner as I'm not sure the machine works properly which is why this has built up. Overall we had a lovely stay, the views are amazing and lots of great walks right on the doorstep.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have recently purchased a VAX which has been left up there with solution for the cleaning team. After doing this myself yesterday it has made a massive difference to the 'dog' smell. We have instructed the cleaning team to make sure this is done on each changeover. Thank you for your comments.

  • "This was a memorable holiday for all the wrong reasons."

    Filthy property, dog excrement in the garden, overflowing bins, uncomfortable beds (the 2 downstairs en-suites), no hot water for 48 hours… there was a lot & 2 weeks later I am STILL awaiting a response from Sykes.

    We're glad that this was resolved by our cleaning contractor coming to the property on the Monday morning of your visit to deep clean to your standard. We can only apologise that you didn't find our property to the correct high standard, and have therefore re-visited our procedures and standards policy to ensure standards are kept perfectly high. Thanks Property Owner

  • "Property had not been cleaned, there was was not enough dining rooms chairs for the number of guests, no hot water Saturday night or Sunday morning."

    Futon I tire was cheap drawer was broken others didn’t open easy, kitchen had two sauce pans for a ten person property. Was promised cleaner would be at property after we complained. We stayed in Friday night and they did not arrive. Appalled with the state of the property and lack of response from the owner and customer care. Put in a complaint two weeks ago and still waiting to hear back. No communication from Sykes. Will not be booking with your company again.

    Thank you for your comments. Since these teething issues in the summer we have a new cleaning team who immaculately clean. All of the other issues were fixed straight away. There did seem to be some communication problems with Sykes, but once the client had contact with us everything was resolved. Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the quiet hamlet of Kettleness, Voebroch is a beautiful, coastal holiday home a shirt distance from Runswick Bay and Sandsend.

Boasting a fabulous sea view, five bedrooms, and within easy reach of the North York Moors, this is a wonderful base for a group of 10 to discover stunning coastlines and unspoilt countryside.

Arrive at this tranquil property with ease by parking in the private driveway, take in the peace and quiet, and get settled into Voebroch.

For spending time with loved ones or celebrating a special occasion, you'll find a spacious, bright, open-plan living space inside; set the large dining table for 10 with a stunning sea view, while the group's designated chef cooks up a storm in the well-appointed kitchen area, complete with a range cooker and dishwasher for easy clean-ups.

Turn on the Smart TV for after-dinner entertainment, whilst the small sitting area invites a few guests to take refuge with a glass of wine by the warmth of the woodburning stove.

This coastal holiday home has you covered with two utility rooms, one with an American-style fridge/freezer and a wine cooler, and the other containing a washing machine and tumble dryer to throw in sandy clothes and beach towels.

Relish the sea view from the rear garden, where guests can picnic on the lawn in the sunshine, set the outdoor seating to dine alfresco under the stars, whilst a side, enclosed courtyard is a quiet spot to unwind.

All 10 guests are treated to stylish, plush bedrooms in Voebroch with three ground-floor bedrooms, ideal for those preferring ground-floor living; choose from a double with en-suite shower room, a double with a TV to catch your favourite morning shows, and a twin room with an en-suite wet room.

Upstairs two more bedrooms include a fabulous double with a freestanding bath and basin to soak in the bubbles whilst enjoying a sea view, alongside another double.

After a day trekking along the coast or swimming in the sea, enter into Voebroch's boot room to kick off muddy shoes and jump straight into the ground-floor shower room to rinse off the day, or enjoy longer soaks for tired legs in the bathroom with a gorgeous freestanding bath and heated towel rail for added comfort.

If you fancy a break from cooking, The Fox & Hounds pub in Goldsborough is a short journey away serving delicious meals.

Voebroch puts you in a fantastic location for a range of attractions to suit all guests; walkers can join the renowned Cleveland Way coastal path at the bottom of the garden, starting in Helmsley and ends on Filey Brigg, for breath-taking and ever-changing landscapes.

Pack the car and take a short drive to Whitby for a day along the family-friendly, sandy beach, marvelling the ruins of Whitby Abbey overlooking sparkling seas, or climb the 199 Steps for panoramic views of the bustling town and harbour.

Staithes is a quieter seaside village north of Voebroch where guests can soak up local heritage and history in Captain Cook & Staithes Heritage Centre, followed by tasting local seafood at Cod & Lobster pub with outdoor seating to make the most of the sea view.

Be sure to visit Robin Hood's Bay, a picture-perfect fishing village bursting with history; wander through the cobbled alleyways lined with independent shops and eateries, visit the village museum and head back in the time in The Old Coastguard Station.

With the North York Moors on your doorstep, outstanding landscapes, rich moorlands and religious ruins are waiting to be explored for guests to enjoy unspoilt tranquillity.

For a coastal escape with a perfect sea view, book your stay in Voebroch.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.
