  • "The cottage was very pleasant and well equipped."

    Skelton is a small village and has a good sized Coop supermarket and plenty of small bakers, butcher etc. There is a large Asda and Aldi on the edge of the village. Saltburn is a15 min drive away. It is a lovely seaside resort with lovely walks etc. Would gladly recommend both cottage and location.

  • "Lovely cottage in small village."

    No parking immediately outside cottage, however parking available across the road or small car park further up the street. Cottage is equipped with everything you require and more. Clean, warm and great for a cheeky week away.

  • "Went to use the grill and it was full of grease there was a lot of traffic noise right through the night keeping us awake."

    The outside was always in the shade and we felt exposed sitting on the front. On the bright side it was handy for the bus into different places and the hand sanitiser on the outside wall was a nice touch as was the welcome wine and Jaffa cakes.

  • "A great little cottage."

    It is in a wonderful place for relaxing and walking with lots of interesting small towns and villages to explore. The Tapas bar is well worth a visit. Skelton is on the Cleveland Way and starts the coastal stretch to Filey.

  • "This is a lovely cottage, in a nice area with very warm and friendly locals."

    We enjoyed our stay very much. It was clean and the bed linen lovely and white. A nice jesture was the gift of a bottle of wine and biscuits on our arrival. However, the cottage is a little tired in places and the kerb appeal could do with some TLC. The owner was easy to deal with via text and allowed us to have the cottage earlier than the 3pm entry time.

  • "This was splendidly well-equipped cottage to explore the village of Skelton and the North Yorkshire Coast."

    The cottage was extremely comfortable (the bed was divine!) with thoughtful welcome gifts and a helpful owner. There was a well-thought-out binder of information about the cottage and area, which we really appreciated. Everything was spotlessly clean, well-organized and a delight to stay in. We would love to come back for two weeks, next time!

  • "For us it was perfect location, we came to see and visit family that all lived within a 3 mile radius, a perfect family get together."

    a real gem but also perfect as a general holidaty location having very easy acsess to get around and about, its a perfect location for local saltburn with its fantastic beach and pair . we went swimming at Redcar pleasure centre 20 min drive away. Tramoline and a fun factory for the kids, behind the skelton Asda superstore there was a big Morrison's in Redcar so plenty of choice where to shop and if you forgot something there is a well stocked high st coop just down the road open till late most nights. In fact we parked the car on the grounds next to. The cottage is a home from home lived in feel very well thought out cottage , you come into the small sitting room with a tv. Though to the dinning area with a kitchen that as everything included dishwasher atactched utilaty room with a washer and a dryer. Outside a small back yard. upstairs there a good size main front bedroom and even though being on the high st, we was not disturbed by the very light morring trafic we sleep like baby's in the very warm and cosy bed, the back bed was a very peaceful two single bed room . Up from there into the Wi-Fi friendly ( god forbid )loft room retreat that the kids loved they was old enough and respectfully enough to be left to there own devices there. A real plus from the roof windows you had a lovelly veiw over the sea and coastline so to conclude it was a 10+ out of 10 holiday for us.

  • "Bannister Cottage is a lovely comfortable cottage in a great location."

    We immediately felt at home here. It’s well equipped with everything you could possibly need. There’s a local co-op just up the road which was convenient plus there’s a cafe, butchers, pizza place etc all on the door step. There’s also a pub ‘The Royal George’ which is a 5 minute walk from the cottage which does a lovely Sunday roast. Bannister Cottage was a great base for us to visit Saltburn-by-the-Sea, Whitby & Flamingo Land in Malton. All fantastic places to visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return sometime in the future.

    Kitchen well equipted. Bed linen and towels excellent quality. Due to location and having to meet planning regs only single glazed windows at front so quite noisy due to traffic. No full length mirrors. Difficult to use plugs in bedrooms due to location of furniture. Only minor points which are easily rectified.
