The place was warm, comfortable and extremely relaxing and is located in a beautiful village on the very edge of the countryside. There are some fantastic pubs serving excellent food, just a very short walk from the cottage. Thanks to Jayne for her kindness and generosity during my stay, I am hoping to plan another visit later this year, David Bolland, Dubai Thanks for your kind comments David- glad you enjoyed your stay. Jayne. Property Owner Reviewed by DavidMay 2022 "We had a lovely stay at this beautiful cottage." Very comfortable, lovely garden. A great base to discover lots of stunning places in North Yorkshire, Reviewed by LucyOct 2021 "A wonderful cottage in lovely surroundings, which served us very well for the week." Extremely comfortable with everything we needed. Perhaps a second shower would've been handy with six of us staying there, but it was still a lovely place to stay. Reviewed by BeverleyAug 2021 "I could not find an assessability statement in the property folder." Guests should be warned of the various changes in floor levels throughout the property & the semi circular style staircase. A second shower in the en suite bathroom would have been more convenient for 6 guests.( stated by several guests in visitor book) Drive very narrow for large vehicles. The fridge was rather small for storing food for a party of 6 self-catering. Otherwise, a well equiped spacious property & good sized garden. Reviewed by LindaAug 2021 "Superbly equipped cottage in a peaceful location." Perfect for a relaxing holiday. Reviewed by MichaelJul 2021 "The cottage is warm, clean and comfortable and met all our needs." We stayed for a week visiting the local attractions and returned to our lovely cottage to relax in the quiet garden. We celebrated with our friends for their 40th Wedding Anniversary at the local pub where we enjoyed a very nice meal. I would highly recommend this cottage and Sykes without hesitation and would certainly visit again. Thank you.

View on map About the location STOKESLEY Great Ayton 3 miles; Saltburn-by-the–Sea 14 miles. Stokesley is an attractive, elegant, historic market town which was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, with many interesting Georgian and Victorian buildings. The River Leven flows through the town and is crossed by the ancient Pack Horse Bridge. Levenside provides visitors with a peaceful riverside walk, well planted with trees, as a contrast to the bustle of the High Street. The town has a distinguished wide cobbled main street lined with Georgian and Regency buildings. It is well served with shops, banks, public houses and restaurants and the weekly Friday markets are held on the main square. Just off the market square is the Church of St Peter & St Paul which has woodwork carved by the Mouseman of Kilburn. Surrounded by the Cleveland Hills and close to the northern edge of the North York Moors, Stokesley provides an ideal base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales, the heather clad North Yorkshire Moors and the pretty market towns of Great Ayton, Northallerton and Thirsk. The seaside spa resort of Saltburn is 30 mins drive away whilst Whitby, Runswick Bay and Robin Hoods Bay are within easy reach.
