    “It's not easy to find something suitable for a large group that pleases everyone, but the Powerhouse certainly does this.”

    It has to be experienced in order to believe! Surprise for wife's 70th. She had no idea what or where, On arrival met by birthday balloons and streamers all over hallway and stairs! 3 minutes later 5 faces appeared on balcony and she almost had a heart attack as it was our daughter's family!

    It has to be experienced in order to believe! Surprise for wife's 70th. She had no idea what or where, On arrival met by birthday balloons and streamers all over hallway and stairs! 3 minutes later 5 faces appeared on balcony and she almost had a heart attack as it was our daughter's family! Choice of at least 6 bedrooms and assisted by grand daughter, she chose the "olde worlde" 4 poster with en- suite. Family unloaded our car and took cases up while she recovered with a glass or three. Meal time arrived and our daughter took her to local fish & chip shop (recommended). She returned to be met by "apparently stray" black dog who she did not recognise, still being in shock, This dog was soon followed by our son's family! It then dawned that she had all of our family together.(Just within lockdown rules, although she had thought that they were all otherwise engaged) After the meal we explored this fantastic place. 2 kitchens, 2 lounges with tv and entertainment system. Snooker/pool table and the icing on the cake - a separate building housing an 8 person hot tub and sauna, complete with mood lights and i pod compatible music system. At least 6 bedrooms (I lost count) 3 with en-suite bath/shower. 2 additional showers and a family bathroom with shower. This converted and modernised coal mine building provided absolutely everything. Our group was 11 humans aged from 10 to 71 years together with 1 well behaved dog, although can accommodate more comfortably. Local facilities include general store, pub, beach and disused harbour, hill walks, takeaways and much more. I cannot thank Mike and Lorraine enough for providing this fabulous experience (even essential supplies were available on arrival) and hope that their business prospers. Experienced from 30 April until 7 May 2021. Best wishes, Andy and Marion

The property

A wonderful conversion of a former Victorian powerhouse, 800 yards from the sandy beach in the former fishing village of Skinningrove.

Restored to a very high standard, this house in Skinningrove includes a magnificent entrance hall with central ash staircase leading to a galleried landing with leaded glass dome.

The Power House offers superb, light and airy accommodation, including a sitting room with feature Victorian cast iron fireplace, arched windows and sea views.

Two separate kitchens provide all the facilities that you will need including a glorious Yorkshire range, a real focal point of this Skinningrove cottage, and one of the dining tables incorporates a slate bed snooker table.

There are two sitting rooms, both with TVs, one of which has a double sofa bed and ramped access, which may make this delightful property suitable for accompanied disabled.

Six bedrooms include two with four poster beds and two with en-suite bathrooms, offering a touch of luxury as well as great flexibility over the sleeping arrangements.

A family sized bedroom that sleeps four has two single beds on a mezzanine floor with a distinctive porthole giving sea views, plus there are three further bathrooms, one of which boasts a beautiful roll-top slipper bath.

The historic town of Whitby and the coastal villages of Staithes and Runswick Bay are all easily reached, as is the lovely scenery of the nearby North York Moors National Park, making this a great Skinningrove holiday cottage for exploring this fabulous region, any time of the year.

Ideally placed for visiting attractions such as the Abbey and harbour at Whitby, the village of Staithes, pretty Runswick Bay and the rest of the coast, the village is also a good base for exploring the dramatic scenery of the North York Moors National Park, making it a great location for all the family.
