  • "The house is perfect and has everything you need for a family holiday."

    The only issue was the wi-fi ! Which we were unable to connect to. We were grateful for the prompt response and visit to repair one of the tv connections. We will definitely be recommending this to anyone else looking for a large property

  • "Lovely property for 6 family adults."

    Spotless on arrival. Very comfy and fully equipped kitchen, although didnt use much as we ate out every day. Bonus having 3 bathrooms especially one on ground floor for one of our party with mobility issues. Lovely garden. Would book again if in area. Central for plenty of places to visit. Thank you.

  • "The house was lovely and there was plenty of room, even a games room in the garden."

    The kitchen was very well equipped with all the crockery/cutlery/ cooking implements you could possibly need. There were TVs in nearly every room. There were two sitting rooms, both very comfortable, lots of cushions in the smaller one for making dens. I had enquired from Sykes Cottages about highchair and travel cot, to be told they weren’t available but they were actually provided - that would have been good to know as they take up a lot of space in the car. There were a couple of minor issues which we left a note about: upstairs shower tray not draining properly and same en-suite door sticking. There were workmen next door who started around 8am so that was slightly irritating to anyone having a lie-in. We had a baby and toddler in the party so most of us were up by then. All in all it was a very enjoyable stay and we knew the owners were next door if there had been a problem. We would definitely like to go back there again.

  • "The house was beautifully furnished and had all facilities we could have wished for."

    The only thing I would criticise was that my husband couldn’t use any of the furniture due to his mobility so an ordinary armchair would have been useful. He sat in his wheelchair. The house was very clean and spacious and had a welcome pack which was very useful .We would go back there again so near to beaches and amenities thank you to owners

  • "The house is lovely."

    Spacious and comfortable. Large pleasant garden with access to cute little summer house. Handy pub next door. Close to Cayton Bay and other attractions. We had some plumbing issues which the owner did try to sort out. The only other negative was that the garden is overlooked by next door and there is building work taking place. This was noisy at times which meant that we didn't sit out as much as we might have done. Overall though, a pleasant stay .

  • "Stunning house in a quiet location, despite being next to a pub."

    House had all we needed and more, there was so much to do in the area. We would have loved to stay longer. Only improvement could have been some more information in the house on arrival, ie what bins to use for recycling ect.

  • "We found a runner on the stairs would be useful for safety reasons, especially when wearing socks."

    Quite slippy, and not safe for the elderly, or small children. The water pressure in the bath and sink taps is very low, and it takes an awful long time to fill the bath. The shower in the upstairs bathroom would benefit from a shower door, as water soaks the floor by the toilet, when in use. The plug hole in the master bedroom shower needs unblocking, as the water does not drain away well, and fills the shower tray, to the point of overflowing. The basin in this en-suite is far too small, even to wash your hands, and water is splashed on the floor. No soap dish in the en-suite shower for people who like to use their own specific soap, and no shelf to put flannels etc. on. Non slip mats in all showers and bath would be useful, as we slipped in the showers more than once, when soapy water was on the shower tray floors. Also we had a very small child in our party, who again, found it very dangerous without a non slip bath mat to sit on. The step out to the patio from the bi-fold doors is very steep, and makes it difficult to get in and out for people with mobility issues, and for small children, who, if they accidentally fell out, could seriously injure themselves on the concrete patio floor.Maybe some large steps, or a small ramp would be a good idea. A door mat inside these doors would also be useful, as you are coming straight in from outside, onto the nice living room carpet. The taps in the kitchen could do with replacing, as they are quite rickety. Two light bulbs in the main living room chandeliers need replacing, and the fireplace does not work at all, and one or two days during our stay, it would have been nice to have had some warmth, as the weather was quite chilly at times. We therefore had to put the main heating on instead,which we thought was a bit excessive.

  • "Lovely cottage and garden great for multiple family use."

    In a quiet location, its a great base for scarborough and surrounding areas. Plenty of space for all, great for relaxing and entertaining. Lovely touch of the welcome hamper and fridge items, much appreciated. Would stay again and recommend to others.

  • "Property met most of our requirements, was well equipped, clean & comfortable."

    My only slight issue was the access from the property to the extensive gardens. From each of the patio doors narrow wooden steps were the only way to get into the area. These were a struggle for my elderly father to negotiate. Wider steps would solve the issue. The property is accessed via a road that is labelled as a public footpath (adjacent to the pub). This information would have been useful in the directions to the property.

  • "Brilliant, modern house in a great location between Scarborough and Filey."

    Everything you need, great kitchen and TWO lovely lounges with big TV's. Only negative and it's being ultra picky is that the 3 double rooms COULD take bigger beds (hard being in a normal double when used to a king size !) All in all, a fantastic house with everything you need at hand.. plus a great pub at the top of the drive !

    As we arrived late in the evening, a Welcome Pack was greatly appreciated! We have already booked the home for next year and look forward to another super holiday!

    A lovely house with a big garden made a great base to explore the North Yorks coast. Scarborough, Whitby, Filey, Bridlington, York... all in easy reach and made for some great days out in the town and beach. The house was spacious and well kitted out. We had a few technical issues, but the owner (who lives next door) was able to get all the little problems fixed very quickly.

  • "The property was clean well presented and included a generous welcome pack."

    The rooms and gardens are spacious and peaceful and the location is ideal for Cayton Bay Beach and to tour the surrounding area. The nearby Pub is well stocked and welcoming with indoor and outdoor seating. Having the owners a stones throw away is a bonus. Always on hand, when required, they provide a reassuring and trustworthy service. A first class property

  • "Fantastic stay at Wyvill House."

    A beautiful, clean property and wonderful garden. We were greeted with a beautiful hamper on arrival and the owners were on hand and very helpful with any requests. The location is perfect, nice and peaceful, a stones through to the local pub and within a short driving distance of everywhere. I would definitely recommend this property and hope to visit again.
