  • "We had a lovely week in Victoria Cottage."

    With high ceilings it felt very spacious for 3 adults and a dog and plenty of comfortable seating in the evening. It was well equipped, we had everything we needed. We found a quieter walk to the beach accessed opposite the cottage which suited our nervous dog well to be away from traffic and allowed a gentle entry to the beach. Easy walks along the beach to Redcar and Saltburn, road trips to the Moors and Staithes highly recommended.

  • "Lovely cottage with everything you need for a comfortable holiday."

    Well located in Marske village within walking distance of all the local amenities including the beach. Staying here made me want to come back to Marske to live.

  • "Victoria Cottage is a lovely comfy house very clean, tidy and very well equipped it even has it's own parking space and lovely little enclosed yard with an outside loo."

    Only little downside is the sitting room takes a lot of heating to make it warm enough to sit in, it could do with little heater to save having central heating on constantly. We do love staying here so convenient for shops coast and fantastic chinese over the road would highly recommend it.

    Location was a good touring base and also local amenities were good, although possibly due to the time of year a few restaurants were closed during the week

  • "No WIFI ! I had seen feedback for the couple of months before we visited stating issues with the WIFI and was very disappointed to find it didnt work during our stay."

    Messaged key contacts who acted surprised and promised to contact the supplier but that was pretty much the extent of it. Booked the cottage as it had 3 bedrooms, dog friendly, location and as it had WIFI. The cottage isnt a 'wow' but perfectly fine, the road isnt as noisy as people have previously stated and parking at the back was okay but I found driving up and then reversing into the slot best as I started to 'ground' the underside of the car when going on forward. The furniture upstairs is very old, it works and serves its purpose but is outdated. There are loads and loads of pictures and paintings dotted around the property, not one appeared to be hanging straight ! The park over the road is great for the dog, supermarket really near and the village is lovely and its a good base to explore the local area. Will go to Marske again but would look at alternative rentals.

  • "We had a lovely stay at this cottage."

    I would recommend it and I would stay again. I would though suggest that the owners pull the weeds out of the front garden and tidy up at the back, weeds etc as it just spoils it a bit but apart from that, no complaints

  • "For a family of 2 adults and two children this is ideal."

    Apart from being situated on a very busy main road. Local buses run from Middlesborough to Whitby (and return) calling at all places on the way and are very cheap compared to other places (so you can give the car a rest and enjoy the views). Also the local beaches stretch to Redcar going north and Saltburn to the south.

    Previous visitors had had issues the month before and still wasn’t rectified by our visit. Contacted the owner but didn’t seem too interested. Towel and sheets missing on arrival, left it cleaner than when we arrived. Lovely area, great local amenities and beach walks. Good base for visiting Whitby and surrounding areas.

  • "A lovely cottage once we managed to get in (our problem - not theirs)!"

    Despite it being on a main road it was quiet and the beds were comfy! The parking space around the back takes a bit of negotiating with other vehicles parked in the vicinity, but it is great to have a designated parking space right outside the back door! One thing we found strange was that we couldn't use the front door, which was a bit of a concern in case of fire, but the windows in the front room open and I guess that would be a way out! There was everything you need within the property and some nice places to eat close by! If you have a dog, then right opposite the house is a green area which our dog loved! Marske is a very nice place and the people are friendly! Its only a short distance from Redcar and the brilliant Saltburn! Petrol is be cheaper here than in the East Riding, which is a bonus! Overall, really enjoyed our stay! Andrea has done a brilliant job - it was the first time we had visited the area, but it won't be the last! Just a tip - if you rely on your phone for everything, just make a paper note of all the details incl the entry code and Andreas phone number, then you won't have the problems we did when my phone broke right outside the property! Thank you Andrea! xx

    Very comfortable and wel equipped. Could maybe do with an electric or gas fire in sitting room, which was a very large room and took a long time to heat for comfortable sitting. It was lovely when fully heated! Good TV reception and had all necessary channels, inc. Prime and Netflix. Lovely comfortable bed with superb bedding. Good parking spavce though a bit difficult to manouver into back street. Lovely little back yard, the outside loo was an added bonus. Overall a lovely staqy in a nive area. Look forward to returning sometime in near future.

  • "We have stayed where several times and know what to expect ."

    If you want the lap of luxury this is not for you - but the property is spacious and convenient for Marske and you can get to all shops and pubs in 5 mins . It has a handy parking space around the back but will only fit up to a medium sized car and does take a bit of practice swinging in . Directly over the road is a park so handy for the dog . About 10 mins walk to beach which is fantastic and the reason we come back . Tons of free parking up near the beach if you don't want to walk and also toilets there . We have been about 5 times to this property and I am comfortable staying there now - but I think they should invest in a new three piece suite and new mattresses - but the same can be said in many rental properties we have stayed in.

  • "We had a great holiday in Marske, such a lovely little place with very good local facilities and plenty to do in and around the area."

    The cottage was much bigger than we had expected, and had everything we needed for a comfortable weeks holiday. The beach is about a gentle 10 minute walk away, and is spotlessly clean - you can walk along it to Saltburn in one direction and Redcar in the other, and both are worth the effort, Saltburn in particular is a lovely place to visit. Whitby is about a 30 minute drive away, and is as good you would expect but probably very busy. Car parking at the cottage is in a reserved spot behind the property, which is very useful - but be warned access is quite tight - we have an e-class coupe so not the biggest car in the world, but a reasonable size. So if you have a bigger car you might want to bear this in mind. All in all we had a lovely time and have no reservation in recommending Victoria Cottage to anyone considering a holiday in the area, especially if you have a dog who loves walking / playing on the beach.

  • "Comfortable and well appointed Victorian terraced house."

    Outside toilet and some garden furniture. Suggested a radio in the bedroom and a cafetiere. Would advise future guests to go past the house to the roundabout and approach the very narrow entrance to parking area from the opposite side of the road. Some traffic noise especially in the morning as the road is busy but all in all a good spot.
