  • "A great location and nice cottage."

    The cottage had everything we needed. Settee and chairs in living room were smart and clean but a little uncomfortable, not for relaxing in. Kitchen great for the dog. It was a cool room and the walled garden ideal. Great help from Claire the housekeeper who helped get the TV working when we arrived. She called round within 30 minutes of us massaging her on Sunday tea time. Really appreciated her help. We would stay again.

  • "Great communication with both Sykes and the owner."

    Nice touches in the accommodation to make visitors feel welcome and cared for. Cottage is as stated with nice decoration. Details of where to eat and walks etc were invaluable. You can imagine what life was like there 100 years ago, but with the benefit of all mod-cons.

  • "We had a glorious week at Howe End."

    The house is perfectly and thoughtfully equipped with all you could need- beautiful linens, top grade appliances, all the kitchen tools. The courtyard is a haven of peace and ideal for a coffee and a good book. Also the Wi-fi is rock solid! The location is ideal, we had days out at Castle Howard and Whitby and visited Ryedale and Helmsley with ease. This is such a beautiful and historically rich part if the world. We didn’t have time for everything! Our children and our dog all had a lovely time in the Yorkshire sun and Tina could not have been kinder or more helpful - providing us with great lists of local amenities, walls and food places! Throughly recommend and we would love to come back. Thank you so much.

  • "Howe End Cottage is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in, and one of the few we would return to."

    The excellent communication with the owner began when she contacted us a week before with some details and continued throughout with almost instant responses to a couple of queries. The cottage, when we arrived, was spotlessly clean. Everything is of the highest quality from the beds and bedding through to the Denby crockery in the kitchen. Furthermore absolutely everything you might need is very generously supplied - including complimentary tea and coffee - as well as extra blankets, duvets etc. The location is excellent also as it is a couple of minutes walk from Kirkbymoorside's main square. It is obvious that a lot of care has gone into creating a holiday cottage that is as comfortable as any home. Highly recommended.

  • "Howe End Cottage is a delightful place, extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need."

    The garden is a lovely peaceful suntrap which we were fortunate enough to make good use of. The owner is very keen to help with information regarding walks in the area, best places to eat etc. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

    Lovely secluded walled garden which is very secure for dogs and a nice sun trap. The cottage is well equipped, nicely decorated and super clean. Situated in a lovely village with shops and pubs a couple of minutes walk away yet never difficult to find a parking spot on the road outside. Lovely walks direct from the front door or short drive to stunning scenery. Owners and housekeeper very helpful too. Hope to be back soon!

  • "A dvd player in the property would have been nice."

    A mention of how steep the stairs are would also be useful in the listing, whilst it did not affect us some, it could be a problem for some people. A well appointed cottage with excellent cleanliness. Good location for exploring North York moors and coast. Owner very nice and helpful when arranging key collection details, good recommendations on where to eat, enjoyed the Durham Ox at Cryke particularly.
