  • "Lovely comfortable cottage, spotlessly clean."

    Situated near all the amenities, whilst being private and quiet, we definitely would stay there again if we return to area.

  • "A super little retreat from the world, comfortable and immaculately clean throughout."

    Husband was particularly pleased with the size of the tv which is usually minuscule in most properties. Marske is a lovely village and the local shops are worth a look. The beach is lovely too and would be great for big and little kids alike, with a wide sandy beach along with pebbly parts for fossil hunters.

  • "Fantastic holiday cottage."

    Parking space directly outside the cottage and it’s just off the main road which is nice when you have small children. Very spacious living space and super clean. Kitchen is very bijou but has everything you need. Owners nearby for anything you need. Would definitely return.

  • "Lovely cottage with everything available to make your stay enjoyable."

    Great location for visits to the coast and the North York Moors National Park. The welcome pack was a nice touch and very much appreciated. It is easy to understand why some people are on their second and third visits to the cottage. Will definitely recommend it to family and friends.

  • "We were very impressed by "The Stables"."

    It is comfortable, very well equipped, and so clean, everywhere...in fact, the bathroom really sparkles with cleanliness! The beds are very comfortable so we all slept well! The cottage is hidden from the road, so it's very private, and there's a little patio with tables and chairs to allow guests to relax outside. There are plenty of shops within walking distance, and of course the beach is nearby. A lovely welcome pack was provided, which was a nice surprise. We hope to spend another holiday there and have no hesitation in recommending "The Stables" to family and friends. Thank you for a lovely relaxing week's holiday!

    It is great to have parking facilities at the door and the people around seemed very friendly. The beaches and surroundings are beautiful.

    When we managed to go out to walk to the beach, so much traffic. The Stables was very clean and the beds were very comfortable but the place was not for us.

  • "The cottage was very clean."

    Furnishings and decor were modern and well kept. The welcome gifts were thoughtful and appreciated. Unfortunately though, we felt that the outside picture and description are misleading as it appears the cottage is completely detached. It isn't as it's joined to a row of garages, each with their own parking. Vehicles came and went. As we had specifically looked for a detached property, and thought that 'courtyard' meant space around it, this was disappointing. Although we had no noise from the garages, we unfortunately did from the surroundings. This included the neighbour opposite who worked unsocial hours. We were woken most mornings between 0600 and 0630 and also disturbed after 2330. Of course, it's his job but, as his van was so close to the property (and noise echoed around the courtyard) the slamming of doors and engine start up was not what we wanted for our break. Another van also came and went, parked just next to the property as it was involved in building work opposite. The shower room was beautifully clean and modern, however the hot flow in the shower and sink were very poor. We mentioned this to the owner who said he would get his son to look at it but we heard no more. If he did look at it, it made no difference. The lack of information in the property was surprising.There was no greeting or information about how things worked. Not everyone would know to look under the router to find the WiFi code, for example. The same applied to the electric heaters. Never having used them before, they took some fiddling to get right. There was information about the cooker and microwave in a kitchen drawer but also for a microwave that wasn't there? There were some leaflets in a rack but some were out of date: a 2017 bus timetable for example. Had it really been there for nearly 3 years? We loved Marske: it has everything you need for a holiday including a friendly pub, The Ship, and some excellent restaurant choices. Everyone we met in the area's restaurants, shops and attractions was friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The surrounding area and beach are lovely. Unfortunately, as beautiful as the property is inside, it wouldn't be for us again.

  • "This is the 4th time we have stayed at The Stables at Marske, it is brilliant and fills all our needs."

    My husband is disabled, as it is single storey it is brilliant, well equipped, wonderful. He uses a mobility scooter, so being able to park just outside the property is excellent, and we can walk/scooter from there to many places. The weather was brilliant and over the week we were able to cover over 50 miles in the surrounding areas !!! We will be back, would highly recommend.

  • "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 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.

  • "Sykes made it really easy to book the accommodation."

    Communication was clear and timely and not too much. The accommodation was really clean and an excellent 'welcome pack' was provided - useful things like tea, coffee, milk, butter and bread, as well as a bottle of wine! it was in a perfect location, close to all amenities and an easy walk to the sea. Situated between Saltburn and Redcar it was an easy walk along the beach to either. A great holiday and I'm sure we'll go back.

  • "The actual property was perfect for us with regard to access and facilities."

    I am disabled and my husband has some level of mobility problems. However, Marske itself was not suitable as neither of us could access the beach, which was very important to us. We had to travel every day to Saltburn or Redcar to get anywhere near the sea. The only item I would recommend at the cottage would be a grab rail to help with negotiating the three steps at the door.

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.
