  • "Lovely cottage would go back ."

    could do with the beds been higher and toilet. Very clean and everything there for you.

  • "I chose Pottowe Cottage because it offers disabled access for guests and I was not disappointed, as what we found catered for my wife's needs admirably."

    The accommodation was well supplied with everything to make our visit comfortable and enjoyable. Keith went out of his way to make sure we lacked nothing. The absence of house and locality facilities information and tourist leaflets was the only minor difficulty. We can thoroughly recommend Pottowe Cottage and if we ever want to return to North Yorkshire, we will certainly want to book here again. Thank you Keith.

  • "This accommodation was fantastic for us as i am severely disabled."

    The amount if space made it easy for me to get around and the shower & size of bathroom were perfect. The only thing which presented a problem was the toilet which was very low. If the tiolet had been a higher type, this woyld have helped enormously and would ebcourage mire dusabled guests. Given this, we would still come again. The facilities and location were great. Thank you.

    a few things that we noticed was that the cobwebs that where high up on various ceilings and a good few loose tiles in the kitchen and bathroom. don't get me wrong the place was lovely and Keith couldn't do enough to help. I would stay there again defiantly

  • "This was a lovely place to stay ."

    Lovely scenery in this area and plenty of places of interest to travel to using this cottage as a good base to start from. The cottage was well equipped warm and mostly comfortable . Bed was a little too firm and having a disabled person with us an extra toilet would have been a bonus . on the whole a good place to stay. Owner was helpful and on hand if we needed anything, quiet and peaceful place with lovely views.

  • "Comfortable, spacious and accessible cottage."

    One of us is a wheelchair user - there isn't hoisting or a profiling bed, etc., but the cottage is easy to get around in a wheelchair & the bedrooms are roomy, as is the living area. We liked the open plan kitchen / dining / lounge experience. The outside areas look great for fine weather though we didn't get the chance to get out much. It worked out for the dog though. Nice having TVs in bedrooms - various missing/broken remotes for AV equipment but overall a well-equipped and lovely place.

  • "Great cottage , all on one level and could use wheelchair to get around."

    Very comfortable and when we had a small problem it was sorted immediately. very dog friendly. however although there is a paddock to walk them round there are no public footpaths nearby if you want to take the dogs for a longer walk in the morning. Beware of the rabbits. ample parking and good storage. nice outdoor area to sit and watch the rabbits playing. Would recommend this cottage to anyone with a disability but who is still able to move around as no grab rails.and dog lovers.

    Keith is always improving the properties. We loved the new log cabin with enclosed garden.

  • "The location of the cottage is excellent if you need to relax in peace because it is quite far away from the road so it's very quiet."

    The cottage owner is very welcoming and provided us with all the information we needed about the area. He also allowed us to change the booking to the other cottage when we realised that the cottage (Cooper) we originally booked didn't have a walk-in shower which could have proved difficult for my husband who has mobility problem. Pottowe Cottage is very roamy, clean and just what we wanted really. The only downside about the holiday is that the cottage doesn't have a wi-fi connection so you are totally cut off from the rest of the world. My daughter who was working on her dissertation and needed the internet could not do anything so had to go to York to work instead. The cottage owner has actually got a wi-fi connection and perhaps in future (just a suggestion), they provide a wi-fi key to the cottages for their guest to tap in - it would not cost them extra to provide this. The area is rich in history and there are so many interesting places to visit - abbey, priory, ruined castles, historic houses and lovely seaside towns. We visited Saltburn-by-the-way which is a beautiful place. Castle Howard is the one not to miss. Thank you, Sykes Cottages!

About the location


Great Ayton 3 miles; Saltburn-by-the–Sea 14 miles.

Stokesley is an attractive, elegant, historic market town which was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, with many interesting Georgian and Victorian buildings. The River Leven flows through the town and is crossed by the ancient Pack Horse Bridge. Levenside provides visitors with a peaceful riverside walk, well planted with trees, as a contrast to the bustle of the High Street. The town has a distinguished wide cobbled main street lined with Georgian and Regency buildings. It is well served with shops, banks, public houses and restaurants and the weekly Friday markets are held on the main square. Just off the market square is the Church of St Peter & St Paul which has woodwork carved by the Mouseman of Kilburn. Surrounded by the Cleveland Hills and close to the northern edge of the North York Moors, Stokesley provides an ideal base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales, the heather clad North Yorkshire Moors and the pretty market towns of Great Ayton, Northallerton and Thirsk. The seaside spa resort of Saltburn is 30 mins drive away whilst Whitby, Runswick Bay and Robin Hoods Bay are within easy reach.

No mobility equipment is supplied and guests are advised to either bring their own self-standing equipment or arrange for loans using one of the specialist providers found on the Internet. The owner will be happy to discuss all access issues with prospective guests prior to booking.
