    Great location and direct access to beautiful walks, made more atmospheric due to the windy weather with warm and welcoming fireside evenings. I’ve never seen such an incredible hamper! Thank you Jamie and Ellen for spoiling us at Christmas as we loved the decorations too.

    The welcome pack was unbelievable and the best we have ever had. The cottage was clean and comfortable. We met Jamie on our first day, who was very friendly. We ate at the Fox Inn (just up the road) the food was excellent, and the landlord very welcoming. Very happy to recommend this cottage.

  • "Overall, the cottage was better than expected."

    A minor moan would be the bathroom door, which was difficult to close, due to ill-fitting. However, on the plus side, the welcome pack was way more than any other we have experienced. The other added “attraction” is that there is a local barn owl that uses one of the trees in the orchard, to gather his thoughts on what he is going to have for dinner. We would definitely recommend this property highly. Jamie was quietly attentive.

The owners were very friendly and accomodating making us feel very welcome and they had been very thoughtfull with their lovely welcome pack. The house was a typical farmhouse with lots of room to relax and enjoy. Our dogs had a great time as well. We were sad to leave after a week.

  • "We had a lovely stay in the cottage and Jamie was very welcoming and friendly, letting our dogs run in one of his fields."

    The welcome pack was very nice and this was a rare property in which we had some milk in the fridge- most people don't do that these days and it's awful when you can't make a cuppa on arrival (I always forget to bring some!) Property was lovely and clean. There was a bit of a diesel / oil (?) smell in the property which was quite strong at times but we opened the windows. Possibly the heating? Cottage had lots of space inside, pretty setting. There was a water bowl for the dogs. Not an issue at all but possibly worth updating the information pack with instructions as to working things like the heating / nice places to eat or visit locally.

  • "The cottage is set in beautiful, rural surroundings & perfectly situated for all we wanted to do."

    It also had all the amenities on offer if you wanted to use them. The welcome pack & more was a total surprise & very much appreciated. We enjoyed visiting Whitby Abbey, Robin Hood's Bay, a trip on the NYMR, from Grosmont to Pickering & back, plus walks which took us along the coast path of the Cleveland Way & on also over the moors not far from the pretty village of Rosedale Abbey. We also took in Staithes & Runswick Bay. All these locations are within an easy drive from the cottage. Should you just want a quiet break away from it all or somewhere to do some crafting then this too is an ideal bolt hole. The owner was delightful & happy to offer suggestions for our days out & any issues we may have had with the cottage. I am pleased to say we had none. The nearest pub, a five minute walk away, also does delicious food & the nearest shop for groceries is in Staithes. We intend to return one day.

  • "The cottage was amazing and so well situated."

    The property was larger than expected and Jamie couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. The welcome hamper was so thoughtful, even down to the bag of treats for the dogs!.. The cottage is located in a very small village and is extremely quiet. The locals are very friendly. There is a village pub within walking distance of the cottage, it's up hill, but the plus being its all down hill on the way home! The food at the pub (The Fox Inn) was absolutely amazing, we went twice it was that good. Dogs are very welcome too! A few places well worth a visit, and have dog friendly beaches are Marske-by-the sea (the beach here, rivals most overseas, it goes on for mile and miles, its clean, sandy and really quiet!) the other is Saltburn-on-Sea (this is a little bit more seaside like, but does have a dog friendly beach and you can get up to the town either via lots of steps or take the hydro-tram up, only £1.50 each and dogs are free!). Another place is Hayburn Wyke, there is a waterfall accessible here, a really nice dog friendly pub, and great access to the Cleveland Way (this stretch of the Cleveland Way is quite accessible and not too challenging). You also have your more touristy places to visit, such as Whitby and Ravenscar, both of which are well worth a visit.

    A quaint but cosy cottage - comfortable and warm, set on a working farm with sheep and cattle on the surrounding fields. A friendly farmer/owner Jamie, with his two adorable Border Collies - nothing is too much trouble for Jamie, he is dedicated to making your stay as smooth and comfortable as possible. Roxby is a small hamlet set high up in the Moors - pure fresh air and peace and quiet in abundance. Yes, you have to see the welcome pack to believe it - you will not starve here. Two completely new items to mention, firstly, the sumptuous bath sheets/towels and secondly, there is a 17th century, circular, stone "gin gang" (look it up) in the back yard - archaeological history attached. Better book early for next year - we already have !

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    However, the description of being dog-friendly did not work for our two dogs. With sheep outside the garden in the road, chickens and geese in the orchard, we simply could not let our dogs off the lead in the front garden for morning toileting nor evening. We had to lead them up. Not ideal at all. The dogs would have easily jumped the low wall in the front garden as the sheep, chickens and ducks were just too tempting. On this premise, we had booked the same cottage in November which clearly was not going to be suitable to take our dogs with us. We have cancelled the holiday as the ‘dog-friendly’ doesn’t apply to us. Sykes refuse to return our deposit (paid for a November 2022 holiday) that we now need to cancel. The description of ‘dog friendly’ does not fit with what we need. Sykes argue with us it’s not their problem. I have asked to be put in contact with the manager and Sykes have not responded. I am furious. 8 months notice of a cancellation and STILL they refuse to refund the deposit!!? I will be taking this to the Ombudsman. Not recommended to book this firm

    Quiet and surrounded by countryside and overlooking a small orchard and some very cute cows. The owner greeted us and provided us with some logs for our wood burner and when we entered the cottage it was wonderful. Very spacious and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. A welcome hamper had been made up for us and it was by far the best welcome hamper we have ever had! It was full of all the basics we needed and a few extra treats too. There is a washer/dryer with liquitabs to use which made life so much easier for us with a toddler we are currently potting training. Had full WiFi and sky TV too which kept the little one occupied. It's in a perfect location to visit Staithes, Whitby, Runswick Bay etc. The owner was polite and talkative but wasn't intrusive and is close by if you need anything and he introduced our son to his two lovely dogs which he thought was great. Besides the hamper, fresh milk, eggs and bread were provided along with fresh fruit, a few chocolates and a few toiletries.

About the location

STAITHES

Whitby 10 miles.

The charming and sleepy seaside village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and back alleys, is something of an artist’s dream. Its pretty houses and cottages are clustered around the old harbour and surrounded by high craggy cliffs on three sides, with a sheltered sandy beach set amongst the rocky coastline. The village can claim connections with Captain Cook who was apprenticed to a draper near the harbour. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms. Staithes is still home to an RNLI lifeboat station and a small fleet of cobles (fishing boats) landing fish, crab and lobster, with boat trips for birdwatching, fishing and even whale watching available. It’s also the location of the popular BBC children’s TV series, Old Jack’s Boat. Staithes has a strong attraction for artists, with an annual Art and Heritage Festival, galleries and artists studios with art courses and workshops regularly on offer. There’s a free Illusion Trail, which guides visitors around the network of ginnels (alleyways), with trail guides available locally. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliff to the sea’s edge. Altogether a superb base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast, visiting the larger resorts of Whitby or Scarborough and enjoying the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park.
