  • "Very much enjoyed our stay at Robins Nest, lovely well equipped cottage,"

    Reviewed by AllenMay 2022

  • "The cottage was lovely really clean and comfortable."

    The only downside was the strong gassy smell which we presumed was from the toilet system. However apart from that we had no complaints and would definitely come back again.

  • "A mirror near a socket would be good for drying hair, and a more noticeable sign as its quite hard to find when you first arrive."

  • "Robin's Nest is well equipped, clean and comfortable."

    It was cold during our stay, but the central heating kept us cosy and there was everything we needed to cook meals in plus information about local pubs, restaurants and shops if we wanted to eat out. Lots of walks, bike rides and tourist information included. One of the walks Alan suggested in the dry valleys of the Wolds was the highlight of our stay and we were blessed with glorious sunshine in November. We did have a bit of difficulty finding Robin's Nest when we arrived, but Alan also said he had asked Sykes to clarify the directions on the listing, but this had not happened. If you approach from Leven it is the first entrance on the RHS after a slight LH bend with a fiingerpost and a layby on the LHS. You don't actually go as far as the first signs for Brandesburton and if you get to the Blue Rose Country Park you have missed it.

  • "We would have liked there to be a light at the entrance to the driveway as on a night time it was dark and you couldn’t see the sign."

    The small solar lights are not powerful enough.

  • "Disappointed there was no washing or ironing facilities."

    Also the cottage had velux windows But no way of opening them. So it made the bathroom especially musky & damp.

    We were sorry and surprised that your stay at Robin’s Nest did not meet your expectations, especially as we have previously received such positive feedback from our guests. We wonder if you might have read the description for our other cottage, PIppistrelle, which is much larger and does have laundry facilities. Robin's Nest is a cosy one bedroom cottage, it is not advertised as having a washing machine or iron and does not have the space for a washing machine to be fitted. With regard to the velux window this will open but it’s primary purpose is for lighting, a fan is fitted for ventilation and a heated towel rail for any damp towels. We take a great deal of pride in ensuring our cottages are cleaned to a high standard and appreciate all comments and recommendations from our guests. We will add an iron, as this may be useful to other guests who choose to attend a race meeting. We sincerely hope that you find a more acceptable accommodation for your next vacation. Property Owner

    Had slight difficulty initially locating the property, so clearer roadside signage would help.

  • "Yes! I emailed Sykes on 14/5/21 and have not had the courtesy of a reply!"

    !I I also rang Sykes the same day and after waiting almost fifteen minutes I hung up. This is not good for any business. Blaming COVID is not an excuse either. Any business that cannot be contacted by it's customers doesn't deserve to succeed.

  • "A good location for a quiet and peaceful stay."

    The cottage is small and compact. The owners have done a great job in converting the barns into 2 cottages and to a good standard. The patio area is a real sun trap for those wanting to get a tan but also has plenty of shade throughout the day. All in all we had a great stay and would recommend the cottage. The only negative would be the fridge didn’t have a freezer department.

  • "Only two things I could fault, no means of opening the velox windows for fresh air, ( had to stand on a chair,) and the other point was being 6’2” the bed was too short for me to be comfortable, mainly due to the bed having a foot board."

    Other than that it was a great retreat, and really lovey owners in the farm house next door. Good feedback left in the visitors book in the cottage.

  • "Our holiday accommodation was exactly as discribe, clean everything you needed and comfortable the small courtyard was a great place to sit and eat in the evenings a real sun trap during the day too."

    The only thing I could say would possibility be a sweeper or broom would help to keep the floors free of dust and grass during your stay. Owners were very friendly and approachable. Would recommend to friends.

  • "We really enjoyed the peace and quiet of this lovely cottage."

    Having the secluded, enclosed patio at the rear of the cottage was ideal for the dog and when the sun was shining it was a sun trap for most of the day. This cottage provided everything we needed for a very relaxing holiday. The owners were welcoming and attentive but not intrusive. We enjoyed a variety of walks in the surrounding area and it was only a short drive to some excellent sandy beaches.

  • "The sofa is very uncomfortable and the tv is very dated."

    A lovely cottage type sofa and arm chair would improve this property 100%. Apart from that this cottage is lovely and in a great location and excellent for dog walks, especially Beverley.
