  • "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.

  • "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.

The property

Lythe 2.3 miles.

Nestled in the quiet hamlet of Kettleness, Voebroch is a beautiful, coastal holiday home just outside Lythe, North Yorkshire.

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, whilst Lythe is a quiet little village just south of the property, home to The Stiddy, a traditional public house, and a village shop to stock up on the essentials.

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.

Historians will find Mulgrave Castle just south of Lythe, a hidden gem with spectacular valley view’s whilst you wander through the romantic ruins.

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.
