    “No-one met us at the cottage on arrival.”

    I had the briefest of conversations with the owner on the phone before we went and was just told that the cottage would be open and the keys would be on the table. That was it. No instruction book re. the various facilities e.g. heating system - we only discovered on the last day that the place had underfloor heating! We had no idea. This didn't matter as the electric panel heaters were very efficient and it wasn't a cold week. But some instructions on this would have helped. I presume ...

    I had the briefest of conversations with the owner on the phone before we went and was just told that the cottage would be open and the keys would be on the table. That was it. No instruction book re. the various facilities e.g. heating system - we only discovered on the last day that the place had underfloor heating! We had no idea. This didn't matter as the electric panel heaters were very efficient and it wasn't a cold week. But some instructions on this would have helped. I presume that the 'owner' is the chap who owned/worked at the hairdressing salon opposite but he didn't make that clear at the beginning of the week. He was the one who, much later in the week, by chance met us, asked if everything was OK and told us incidentally about the underfloor heating! It's just an issue of a little bit more printed information is needed along with meeting and greeting guests. The place itself was great - 100% clean, well-equipped, quiet, convenient, warm, good kitchen facilities etc. so no complaints at all on that score. Excellent television with Sky if you should want that. We also had access to a garage where we could safely store our bikes. The double bed was a bit 'soft' for my liking. Maybe a new mattress should be considered. Other than would recommend both Sykes Cottages generally and this cottage in particular. A fascinating area, full of history. Some simply beautiful scenery juxtaposed with some post-industrial ugliness! We had an excellent week. Thank you.

About the location

MARSKE-BY-THE-SEA

Saltburn 3 miles; Redcar 3 miles; Whitby 20 miles.

Marske-by-the-Sea is a small, bustling coastal village with long, wide, sandy beaches. Originally an old fishing village, today it has a selection of local shops and pubs, which cater for all the family, plus the safe, sandy beaches, sand dunes and fishing boats are an enticing attraction. Places of interest nearby include Captain Cook's birthplace, the mining museum, and the Zetland Lifeboat Museum. Within easy reach of this quaint village is a horse riding centre, the stunning scenery of the North York Moors, through which runs a steam railway line, and the numerous pretty inland villages and fishing villages including Staithes and Runswick Bay. The old Victorian spa town of Saltburn is just 3 miles away and it's an easy drive to other seaside resorts such as Whitby. A great base from which to tour the area.
