  • "Lovely little cottage - very close to beaches and shops."

    Our second stay and just as comfortable. No problems parking by the church. We stayed in November and the house warms up quickly after a cold day out. Plenty of excellent places to walk within a short drive.

  • "Great, they even put up a 'happy birthday' banner."

    The house is absolutely charming, even lovelier than in the photos. The hosts were very accommodating & gave us an extension when we woke up late on our last morning.

  • "Great location, near to all amenities."

    Property looks very tired indeed, all mattresses need replacing, the 2 seater settees also need replacing, as we actually struggled to get out of them, the whole house feels damp making it feel cool, kitchen table needs attention as it rocks about, cooking implements, crockery & cutlery leave something to be desired, as you need to give some of them a thorough clean before using, not enough clothes hangers.

  • "Lovely little cottage, tucked away but still very close to all local amenities and the beach."

    Very homely and we felt it had everything we needed for our stay. The parking wasn't an issue, easily found space on the main road and unpacked/packed the car on the lane. Small yard, secure for the dog and had a seating area. Some really nice pubs just a few minutes away, The Ship Inn and The Zetland had really nice food and everyone was very welcoming. The Cove bar was really nice and the owner really nice, telling us what to see and do in the area. The beach is gorgeous and only a 5 minute walk away, dog friendly and great for the bodyboarding. Would definitely recommend and return in the future. Thanks for letting us stay.

  • "The location is excellent, but there are some genuine problems, and also problems with the way that Sykes dealt with the problems."

    I travel extensively and stay in holiday rental properties, so I’m realistic about what to expect. We payed nearly £700, including the booking fee. There are lots of good points and things to recommend it; the bed was very comfortable, the kitchen was quite well equipped, the Wifi and TV worked and getting the keys was straightforward. There’s a good variety of books, the master bedroom is nice and airy, there’s an outside toilet, a nice fireplace and the sofa is comfortable. The shower is powerful and there’s more than enough hot water. It’s a comfortable place to stay and I’d almost recommend it. But….The parking is not trivial as, being on Hall Close, it can be a bit of a walk if one has to park at the far end of it. And…. - the property does not have smoke detectors. Or rather, one had been there but had been removed and the very old one that is there doesn’t work. I flagged this to Sykes who asked for pictures; their messaging app doesn’t accept pictures, leading to a week of messages which went nowhere. Sykes didn’t seem to be at all bothered by this and repeatedly asked if we had told the owners (we did, when we noticed it) - the property is in real need of refreshing; the house smelt strongly of damp when we arrived and there was peeling paint in the kitchen, and damp patches in the living room. We had to buy air fresheners to cover the smell - check-in and check-out times are unclear. The property listing states that check-out is 10am, or 11am depending on the which bit of the listing you’re reading. The confirmation message from the manager stated 12pm. I checked the day before we left, and was told it was 10am, resulting in having to change plans to meet family for breakfast. Sykes have refused to acknowledge these discrepancies. You might want clarification before you book if this is important to you. It was important to us. - alas, the street. Most of the neighbours are lovely, friendly and welcoming. They really are. But a house 30 yards down the street is boarded up with an court order on the metal front door, and another neighbour had a domestic argument with shouting in the street and banging on the door until 3am. Your experience may vary. It didn’t ever feel unsafe though, just some houses felt run-down and a bit uncared for. Many were lovely though - the plaster behind socket behind the bed is cracked; it seems it’s only a matter of time before it cracks completely and the socket becomes very unsafe - ah, the lack of bins. It isn’t even listed in the council website has having rubbish collected (although the neighbours are…). The instructions for waste bins are to bag up your rubbish (presumably with your own bin bags you’ve bought or brought) and leave them in the back alley. In Summer. Potentially for 2 weeks. With rats, cats and local foxes. We were on a “recycling” week, and there was no instructions about what to do then. It’s a small thing, but I don’t much like having rubbish pulling up in the kitchen because there’s no way to store it outside With a little love and TLC, it could be stunning place and a real gem. It really could. As it is, it feels rather like going to stay at an elderly aunt’s, complete with faded pictures on the walls and towels from the early 1990s, dregs of previous holidaymakers’ washing up liquids in multiple bottles, a lack of hand soap and barely enough toilet paper to last more than a weekend.

  • "Yeoman Cottage is a lovely terraced house, situated in the centre of Marske and just a few minutes’ walk from the beach."

    It had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We have relatives in the town and would definitely use this property again. The owners were very helpful in helping us with directions and other details.

  • "Excellent communication with the owners and reliable directions with easy access to either on street parking or a free public car park about 300 yards away."

    We booked this as a winter dog walking break. With long sandy beach just a short stroll away and good undulating coastal walks this place was ideal, Value was added in that 250 yards from the home is the "The Dog House ", a Cafe offering excellent Barista type coffee, with humans guaranteed entry if they are well behaved and are accompanied by a dog! Within 300 yards you have various shops, cafes, take aways and micro pubs, yet as you are tucked away on a quiet street, you still get that feel of being away from all the hustle and bustle of life, a home away from home. In our view this home represents excellent value for money.

  • "The cottage is seriously in need of some TLC there was a cupboard door in the kitchen which nearly came off in my hand when I opened it as it was only held on by one hinge, I messaged the owner but did not get a response, we had to tape it up as my husband has sight loss and I was afraid he may injure himself."

    The mattresses on the single beds are in need of replacing and the seal on the front door has perished. The light fitting in the double bedroom looked as though it had not been cleaned for some time, the door between the kitchen and the lounge area would not shut without a great effort and a lot of noise. The plus side is that the cottage is ideally placed and has an enclosed rear yard.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Yeomans Cottage."

    It was bigger than we expected and located down a pretty lane. Parking was no problem by the church. The cottage had everything we needed for a family of 4. The location is fabulous, just a short walk to the left is the amazing beach, and a step to the right is all the shops. The locals were so very friendly and the whole village is spotlessly clean and cared for. We will definitely return to Yeomans, it really felt like home from home.

  • "The house was very traditional in style as described but wasn’t lacking any facilities."

    The beds were extremely comfortable with lovely pillows and bedding. The outside area could have nicer, some comfortable seating would have been welcome. We were disappointed that there wasn’t a toilet roll waiting for us which meant we had to head straight the shops upon arrival. On the second day the toilet began to leak from the base, I contacted the caretaker and informed Sykes. I was given a unique reference number and the name of a person who would contact me further. This did not happen and the problem was not solved during our stay. I bumped into a plumber in the road who was aware of the problem he offered to pop round the next day but never did. Luckily the problem was not too bad but just as well as Sykes took no action.

  • "I received check in/out details with several different times for both."

    Emailed Sykes for clarification and got no response. The cottage listing does not state access to yeoman terrace is on foot only. As a senior citizen I found carrying my luggage, which included a case of dog food, while holding a dog lead difficult. It required many trips. No tumblers for soft drinks or water. The cottage is in a good position close to all amenities and the beach. Lovely walks along the beach even at high tide.

  • "Positives: The quiet, sandy beach of Marske is a stone’s throw from the cottage; Saltburn cliff with its abundance of fossils is a pleasant walk along the beach."

    The beds are comfortable enough and there’s an abundance of towels. But, the cottage is in an alleyway with no road-side parking even for safe loading/ unloading. The internet is unreliable, off again, on again! The pots, pans, placemats, oven trays were all grimy and sticky. The rug in the living room is ragged and dirty. There was no cafetière or coffee percolator, not even a strainer to make coffee. There is a neighbourhood cat which will sneak in and run upstairs as soon as the door is open. It bit our 7-year-old quite badly! Overall, disappointing, to say the least.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Yeoman Terrace but along with the other reviews we have read about the place we agree that it could do with a little tlc."

    The doors/locks are stiff and difficult to shut, the stair carpet was coming away from the tread halfway up the stairs and the on/off button was broken off the kettle making it difficult to use(I'm sure they are aware of this as we found the button in the cupboard!). It all seemed very clean and tidy but after reading your website about cleanliness in covid times I was surprised to see all the books, games, dvd's etc had been left in place which made me wonder whether it had been cleaned as well as I hoped. In normal times I wouldn't have given that a second thought, but we didn't let it affect our enjoyment of our stay.

  • "Although the cottage was placed in a lovely area the overall stay was marred by the fact that this cottage was not very clean at all."

    There was an old water bottle under one of the beds that had been there for goodness knows how long and a dusty old fleece hung up behind one of the doors. Someone had made a comment a year ago about the toilet seat in the outside toilet being broken and it was still broken. I had to rewash all the cups/ plates etc as they looked dirty and were chipped. The place overall just seemed tired and in need of some tlc. I believe this property is managed rather than the owners doing the work as it lacked pride in the appearance. Crockery didn’t match, downstairs internal doors didn’t close and the oven was dirty. There was no welcome pack and it just lacked the normal Sykes quality that we’ve come to expect in your cottages.
