  • "Had a Good Time this is not a Complaint but is meant to be helpful."

    But several things listed were not provided. BBQ. Radio/ CD player. A sharp knife /bread knife is needed. I would recommend others to bring the following: Washer no powder/tabs. DVD player no DVDs No salt/Pepper. The grass was long and needed cutting. The picnic bench was in poor order needs painting

  • "Lovely warm cottage, very comfortable, heating easy to use and we loved the shower."

    we would highly recommend the cottage as a base. Good location, we used the local bus service, seemed daft to use the car for £2 one way each. The one and only suggestion is the knife used for cutting, it needs sharpening , very blunt. Loved the food in Kaskade, all home cooked and the staff helpful and friendly. It was a lovely atmosphere. We really enjoyed our stay.

    Lovely comfortable bed and furniture. Really loved the wet room and the decor was so nice in the cottage . Ample parking and safe for our dog. The tree outside the lounge is beautiful. (One small niggle- no hairdryer! Never had that problem in a Sykes cottage before). The listing mentioned a BBQ but we couldn't find it. Enjoyed visiting Kaskane- good food and friendly staff!

  • "We stayed in Bishop cottage last year so we knew what to expect."

    The cottage was very clean and there were lovely white towels provided. I have marked comfort down because of the bed; the mattress is lumpy and should either be replaced or provided with a thick topper. Also, the frying pan is no longer non-stick and not big enough to cook breakfast for two. Having said that, we enjoyed our stay and may well return. We had a lovely meal at the on-site KasKane; fish, chips and mushy peas, the batter was light and crispy, just right. However, it is mainly an eatery and a shame that you can’t just go in for a drink, you have to sit outside, which is fine if the weather is good but not so if inclement. I think an information sheet on recycling would be useful or stickers on the outside bins telling you what goes in which bin because not all councils operate the same colour coding system. Finally I would like to say thank you for the milk and chocolates, they were much appreciated and a nice touch!

    Lovely and clean and the pint of milk was appreciated We did find the bed uncomfortable due to feeling the springs through the mattress and think a new mattress would be better for others in the future Definitely need a chest of drawers in place of the chair by the wardrobe as we had to live out of our suitcases Something not as big but it would have been great to have a bread knife in the kitchen

  • "I have had a wonderful holiday at Bishops Cottage, it was perfect."

    I would throughly recommend Bishops Cottage as a holiday destination. Everything you need is available, it's well appointed, very comphy, nice & clean, lovely and warm. The local beach is a 10 minute walk, well worth a visit. There are plenty of walks available, you will need a head for heights if you tackle the cliff tops! The location is perfect for exploring the coast, and easy access to the North York Moors. Kaskane do wonderful food, lovely tobe able to take my dog with me for tea. Staff are very efficient and easy to approach.

  • "Overall, very happy with the cottage."

    We had a problem with the heating but within minutes of ringing the number provided it was sorted. Someone had felt the need to leave a note about how to operate the tv but despite our best efforts we could only get a very limited number of channels. I know we could have rung for help with it but, to be honest, we didn’t watch enough tv to warrant it. The nearby restaurant/bar is really just a restaurant and unless you book a table for a meal you can’t sit inside and get a drink. We did sit outside in the late afternoon sunshine and have a drink but it was too cold at night. As there were no other pubs within easy walking distance it was disappointing. Having said all that, we are planning a repeat visit next spring!

  • "Clean, comfortable & equipped for our needs."

    (However as has been pointed out in previous reviews there is no breakfast bar to seat 4 in the kitchen & the shower is a wet room - photo & description should be updated). Weather was good, only 1 wet day. Able to do plenty of coastal & moorland walking & the frequent bus service enabled us to do linear walks. Our disappointment was the fact that the 1 bed-roomed cottage next door, although the same size as ours allowed up to 4 dogs (ours was only allowed 1). We could hear the 4 dogs next door barking through the partition wall. It was particularly annoying when they were let out into their garden area & were barking at 3am/4am & again at 6.30am. Didn't appreciate the broken sleep & early wake-up calls during our holiday.

    So much so that the amount of bleach everywhere got on my clothes and ruined an irreplaceable £65 top. If you love the peace and quiet then this is the place to go. Nothing really in the area and the Kaskane bar required you to book even just for a drink which was disappointing. The beach is lovely and perfect for dogs. The cottage was warm and cosy but the sofa was uncomfortable due to the sofa bed. The shower is a wet room and water gets everywhere. Ideally situated if you don’t mind driving everywhere.

    A Pyrex baking dish in the cupboard was covered in baked on fat, saucepans needed to be washed before use. Overall cleanliness could have been better, there were mucky corners on windowsills and in corner by front door. We did have a good week but a a few more mugs and spoons would have been nice and no mucky corners or dirty dishes. We had a Skyes cottage two years ago and it was top class so we did expect it to be better equipped and cleaner.

The property

A lovely single-storey terraced cottage in Skinningrove.

Cosy, comfortable accommodation, a great base for touring.

Note: This property is next to Ref. 2835 and Ref. 3719 and together they can accommodate 11.

Tyreman Court

Three delightful, single-storey cottages in a courtyard setting of five properties, in a quiet location in the coastal village of Skinningrove. These Skinningrove cottages have been built on the site of the original stables which housed the pit-ponies serving the old mine in the village, and have been thoughtfully designed, decorated and furnished to offer very comfortable, contemporary accommodation. Outside, the cottages share a communal garden area with lawned and gravelled areas, ideal for sharing an evening drink. Close to the Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum and Cleveland Way National Trail, and within easy reach of the beautiful moors and coastal countryside around, these lovely Skinningrove cottages make a great base for exploring the area, including the picturesque villages of Staithes and Runswick Bay, and the historic town of Whitby.
