"On arrival the cottage was very welcoming: warm and a bottle of wine on the table."
Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Tastefully renovated. Convenient for all amenities within walking distance. If you're looking for a cosy, top class cottage, look no further because this is it.
Thank you for your kind words Mike. I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay in our cottage and hope you'll visit again soon. Kind Regards, Rachael. x Property Owner
"Had the best time at Benjamin cottage."
It was above and beyond what we could have hoped for. Quiet area but just a short walk to the beach . And short drive to Saltburn . The cottage itself was immaculate with every facility you could wish for . The owner Rachael was very helpful and communication was excellent.
Thank you for such a lovely review Verlie. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and liked our little cottage!! I hope you'll come back again soon. Kind Regards, Rachael. x Property Owner
"Such a wonderful property, very clean and so well designed maximising all the space to include everything you need."
Fabulous kitchen and bathroom and the bedding and towels were luxurious and fresh which you don’t always get. I loved the area too, some great bars and places to eat locally as well as in nearly Saltburn (try 19 Saltburn for a treat) Beach really is a gem, we walked our legs off. Rachael was there for anything we needed and replied straight away if I had questions. Lovely also to be somewhere where there aren’t house rules everywhere, made it much more homely. Overall very professionally run and fantastically maintained.

"What a gem."
We had a delightful stay, the cottage was brilliant in terms of comfort and location. Marske by the Sea is not an area we were familiar with but is just lovely. Beautiful long sandy beach, great walks locally and a short drive to Sandsend, where we walked along the beach to Whitby. Roseberry Toping was a short drive and a cracking walk. The area of Marske by the Sea has good local shops and pubs and a exceptional greengrocer. Very friendly place and a lovely cottage.
Thank you so much for your lovely review Sarah. I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay. I hope to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, Rachael.xx Property Owner
"Lovely cottage with everything you could possibly need."
Much appreciated welcome pack, thank you. Locals very friendly and helpfull. Great location, 5 minutes walk to shops and pubs on High Street. Great area for a nice relaxing holiday, walks along beach, Red car one way and Saltburn the other. Staithes a lovely village 20 minutes drive away.
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback Kathleen. I'm really pleased you enjoyed your holiday and hope you'll come back soon!! Kind Regards, Rachael. x Property Owner
"Beautiful cottage, immaculately clean and very comfortable."
Lovely welcome basket and very well equipped. We loved it and would definitely recommend. A great position, central to Marske and easy reach to the beach. The only thing I might add are a couple of hooks on the bathroom door or wall to hang a dressing gown or towel. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Thank you very much for your lovey feedback Marylisa. I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay. I'll arrange to have some hooks put on the bathroom door; thank you for the tip!! Hope you'll return again soon. Rachael. x Property Owner
"The cottage was a very welcome surprise."
We have rented many holiday lets over the years and Benjamin Cottage is the best cottage we have stayed in - by far! The cleanliness was above expectations and the equipment and décor was excellent. I highly recommend this cottage if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Marske.
Hi Katie, What a lovely review - thank you so much. I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you back again at some point in the future. Kind Regards, Rachael. Property Owner
"Lovely cottage perfect for a family getaway."
Well equipped and fantastic location.
Thank you for your lovely review Emma. Hope to see you again soon. Rachael. x Property Owner
"This is a lovely cottage - it had a warm, cosiness to it with a generous welcome pack (although I am gluten free so couldn't eat any of it!"
). The amenities were excellent with all the equipment required. It is on a quiet little street and a short walk to the sea. Only issue was dog poo in part of the back alley but that was beyond the owner's control - just take a torch in the dark!!! I would definitely return and recommend.
Hi Rosie. Thank you for your feedback. I’m pleased you enjoyed your stay. I’m sorry to hear about the dog poo! I’ve spoken to neighbours either side and they are on the lookout for the culprit! Sadly not every dog owner is responsible. Hopefully we’ll get this resolved asap. Hope to see you back again soon. Kind regards, Rachael. Property Owner
"Best equipped cottage I have stayed in, beautifully decorated, every thing in the cottage was of a very high standard."
All needs catered for, welcome basket, Xmas tree, wonderful! Even a pint of milk, most important after a long journey! Excellent!
Thank you for your lovely feedback Lynda. I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I hope you'll visit again in the future. Kind Regards, Rachael. x Property Owner
"We had a lovely stay really clean and everything you need very quite street only took a star off as had no secure place for the dog ."
There is a park very close so would cove to stay again .
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback Linda. I wish we were able to enclose the rear of the house. Despite our best efforts we have been unsuccessful in our requests to be able to do this. To date the council keep saying no. We’ll keep trying! X Property Owner

The third visit to marske the dogs
Thank you for your lovely feedback Joanne. Looking forward to you visiting again soon. Property Owner
"Fantastic place, well equiped with everything we needed for our stay."
the welcome hamper was a really nice touch. The bed rooms were clean and bright with really comfortable beds and lovely bed linen. The bath is long and deep... relaxing after a morning dip in the cold sea Easy access to beach, shops and cafes. We had great weather for March and got up early to see the stunning sunrise over the sea, the dogs loved it. The wood burning stove was great for the chilly evenings.
"Lovely home from home, everything you could possibly need was provided."
Log fire a bonus for cold winter nights. No problems with parking on the street. Ideal situation for local amenities and surrounding areas.
"Can’t fault the cottage… home from home for us now snd for Lilly"
"What a gem of a place"
"The owner had really thought about what guests would need during a stay so the house was really well provisioned."
In addition she was in contact and it was reassuring to know that she was nearby if any problems had occurred. The house was small but there was excellent use of the space available and really thoughtful storage solutions in all rooms. The house was spotless, the welcome pack much appreciated and we felt cosy and comfortable as the evenings drew in. We hope to return.
"The cottage is well equipped and within a short walk to the supermarket and other amenities."
Parking outside the cottage is a little tight but there is the option to park on the co op car park a short distance away. The beach is within a 10 - 15 minute walk and is lovely. Marske is ideal for visiting the North Yorkshire coastline, places such as Staithes and Whitby Bay.
"The cottage is in a great location with a super small town that contains all requirements without the commercial outlets of resorts."
I have only marked the property down for 2 reasons, the main one being the lack of a downstairs bathroom for a toilet and washbasin that would fit in an under stairs space. There isn’t any suitable space for an outside sitting area that would have been appreciated. The welcoming gifts were very generous and like all fittings, furniture, appliances in fact everything in the house was of the best quality.
"Home from home cottage - in a great spot in Marske - close to beach, local shops and facilities."
We had a fab week walking on the beach, swimming and in the local countryside!!
"Benjamin Cottage was gorgeous."
It was handy for the sandy beach, supermarkets and cafes/restaurants/pubs. We found the beds really comfortable and we loved the pillows and quilts. The towels were large and very soft. Everything in the cottage was good quality. Perfect!
"Benjamin Cottage was in a great location, central to everything in Marske and the surrounding area."
Parking was a bit tricky- a narrow street with cars parked on both sides. However, that did not detract from the lovely house. Clean, lovely decor, comfortable. Everything had been provided, and a lovely welcome gift awaited our arrival. Such a lovely touch. We had a great week, enjoying the local places to eat and drink, the fabulous beach and a great walk along the beach to Salburn. Marske is such a friendly place. We'll definately be back
"The cottage is lovely with good quality facilities …."
like the pans etc are good solid quality …. great location. As always, we had a really pleasant stay
"An exceptionally clean, (most important at the moment due to Covid 19) well equipped cottage, all appliances, crockery, towels and bed linen were of a high quality."
A very welcoming, homely feel has been created plus a welcome pack made us feel very spoilt. Although in the center of the village near to all amenities it was quiet and peaceful and only a 10min. walk to the beach, which is amazing. We enjoyed our stay at Benjamin cottage and will hope to return in the future.
"Marske itself is absolutely lovely, unspoilt, extremely friendly and generous locals who smile and say hello and stop for a chat."
Several shops Inc co-op and sainsburies in v short walking distance and several bars and restaurants far enough down the road not to cause noise. Some stunning walks if fit, along beach to Redcar or Saltburn or to Errington woods but all within a few minutes drive if less active. Benjamin cottage is beautiful, much nicer presentation than most dog friendly places I have used and just about everything you need to self cater. Great bath and shower, fully equipped kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher and all utensils you might need inc good quality pans. Absolutely spotless when we arrived, very good value for money. If you do have a dog the back yard area is shared and not secure so to be aware but that wasn't a problem for us, my dog and my friend and I were out walking several times a day rain or shine.
"Excellent, Benjamin cottage was beautiful it was more than I expected, I have used Sykes cottages before and have always been more than happy with everything."
I would highly recommend Sykes and Benjamin cottage is a must.
"It was just perfect."
Benjamin Cottage was so well equipped and a perfect location. The little treats when we arrived were perfect and welcome. We hope to go back.
"Lovely cottage in a great location."
Extremely clean and comfortable. It had everything you needed. Looking forward to returning to the cottage in the future!
"The cottage was a very cosy place to stay and it has everything you needed and more, Rachael the owner kept in touch every step of the way and was very helpful nothing was too much."
The welcome package was a big help to get our week started. I would recommend any of Rachel's cottages to anyone looking for a place to stay & we are already planning our next visit. We visit the area on a regular basis several times a year and this is by far the best place we have stayed.
"A really lovely cottage beautifully kept."
This is our second visit and we certainly plan to come back.
"Excellent cottage, excellent host, very clean I would highly recommend."
The only downside of the place is a very bad parking outside of the property plus description mentioned - garden. No garden there just a yard behind the house. I would be definitely going back as place is spotless clean and very comfortable.
"Great communication with Rachael, the owner both before and during the holiday."
The cottage is fabulous, located perfectly for a quick walk to the beach and touring the area. The cottage was very well equipped with good quality furnishings and appliances, very much home from home. The neighbours were friendly too!
"Should say the garden is not enclosed."
Also some more kitchen utensils/ bowls. More cutlery, large bowls, gravy boat, garlic crusher. Also a lamp in the front room. Oven gloves with two hands. Mat at back door should be bigger as the kitchen floor gets dirty quickly especially when wet.
"We had a wonderful three night stay in Benjamin Cottage."
We instantly felt at home and much appreciated the fresh flowers on the table , fresh bread , jam and wine . Thank you very much Rachael for those and for calling in to see us. The cottage is located in quiet area off the main road with parking on the street outside the house. The furnishings are beautiful and comfortable. The kitchen is tastefully decorated and very well equipped It was lovely to light the Woodburner and relax after long walks with Mabel our dog . Can’t fault our stay and hopefully would like to return soon.
"We had a lovely Christmas tree, and wine Prosecco and some cider in the fridge as well as a loaf of quality fresh bread."
.. really welcoming. The cottage is lovely and Marske is a very pretty place with a friendly atmosphere The service both from Sykes cottages snd the owners has been really good
"I had a fantastic stay at Benjamin Cottage."
It's a quiet, cosy property with lots of great features and is an ideal base for exploring the area. I was visiting for work and it was great to come home to a log burner, a bath and other well thought out features. Marske is a great starting point for exploring the coast and I will definitely back. Also a massive thanks to Rachael for her communication and being generally lovely. Would definitely recommend!
"Benjamin Cottage was brilliant."
Loved it, loved Marske-by-the-Sea
"The stay that myself, the wife and our little dog had was fantastic, from the moment we walked through the door, it was inviting and welcoming."
We was greeted by a Bottle of Wine (Which I drank) lol, A Fresh Loaf of Bread and some Jam, what a brilliant welcome that was. The whole house (Cottage) was clean and tidy, no sorry spotless!!! I would recommend this property to anyone and I have to say, we will certainly be hiring this one again as its a stone throw away from my best mates house, so a perfect place to stay and also a perfect location. May I suggest one thing, the Netflix Accounts on the TVs upstairs did not work, as the TVs I dont think were connected to the Internet, please dont take this as a downer to this Holiday Cottage as Myself and my Wife have been alot of places and rented alot of cottages and Benjamin Cottage is at the Top of the List for us by far. Again, thank you so much and we will be booking again very soon Regards P,T & Dotty
"Lovely well presented cottage, in a nice area of Marske, good for shops and pubs, dog owners need to be aware that the rear area is communal also you need to be good at parallel parking."
"Perfect little get away in a beautiful cottage"
"Great location and freshly renovated cottage."
"Absolutely stunning cottage."
Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated with everything you could need for a fantastic holiday. The outdoor sitting area although not enclosed was very pleasant to sit out at on an evening with a glass of wine and catch the early evening sun. Marske is a fabulous village; dog walkers heaven and the beach is one of the nicest we have ever visited. Lots of little coffee shops and micro bars just a minutes walk from the cottage. Rachael was the perfect host; very friendly and helpful. We have stayed in lots of cottages over the years and this is our new favourite. Can’t recommend highly enough. 10/10.

An elegantly-styled, mid-terrace property resting just paces away from the hustle and bustle of Marske-by-the-Sea’s village centre.
This superb retreat is ideally situated for a coastal break for a family of all ages, with a well-equipped home to come back to each evening after an action-packed afternoon.
Upon entering the property, be greeted by the brightly decorated living room, where you can snuggle up on the leather sofas and tune into the Smart TV, whilst the woodburning stove fills the room with warmth during the winter months.
Beyond here, is the spacious kitchen boasting a seamless blend of contemporary design with touches of character to offer a superb space for the whole family to gather to enjoy a home-cooked meal, or to plan the days ahead over a glass of wine.
The kitchen comes well-equipped with everything you could possibly need, as well as a washing machine and a dishwasher for convenience.
After a busy day exploring, choose to indulge with a relaxing soak in the bath tub before retiring to one of the well-presented bedrooms, comprising a double and a twin bedroom.
The bedrooms each offer a tranquil setting to wake up to each morning, as well as ample storage and a TV.
Outside also you will find a lovely, spacious outdoor seating area with a lovely variety of flowers in hanging baskets where you can relax over a glass of wine.
If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, a leisurely stroll will bring you to a selection of pubs and restaurants, as well as a choice of shops for picking up the essentials.
If you are visiting during the summer months, spend an afternoon resting on the sandy beach, or enjoy one of the watersports on offer, including boating, surfing and windsurfing.
Alternatively, a little further away is the old spa town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea, where you will be delighted by its Victorian charm and attractions including the water powered cliff lift and the historic pier.
Further afield attractions include the North York Moors, where those feeling active will find miles of walking and cycling routes (secure bike storage available) amid breath-taking scenery.
Benjamin Cottage is a splendid getaway for a family holiday to this picturesque coastal location.
