  • "We rented two cottages."

    Hurdles lacks the wow factor of The Old Barn but is non the less very comfortable. It is extremely well equipped and we received a fabulous welcome pack including champagne (we were there over Christmas). All housekeeping requirements were thoughtfully provided making our stay more comfortable. Our only disappointment was with Sykes Cottages who were unresponsive to requests or questions prior to arrival but this is no reflection on the owners or cottage, both of which are exceptional.

  • "The cottage was pristine and well appointed with everything we could have asked for and more."

    The swimming pool was amazing (particularly as the weather wasn't great) and we also enjoyed the tennis court. I was worried that it would be too isolated but actually it was within easy driving distance to the Coast (Filey & Bridlington only 20mins) and the guest folder had plenty of suggestions for nearby places to eat (although the kitchen had everything you needed to cook as well).

  • "Very impressed with the cottage and all the facilities."

    We had a fabulous stay - everything we needed was available in the cottage. It really was beautifully furnished and comfortable. We loved the swimming pool and our little grandson thoroughly enjoyed his first proper holiday after lockdown. Thank you so much to the owners for creating and maintaining a fabulous holiday environment. We would definitely like to return.

  • "Another fabulous stay at Hurdles!"

    We love the house, the decor, the location, the swimming pool (especially having a 2 hour private slot each day), and the extremely helpful and friendly host family. Thank you!

  • "This is a great place to stay, in a lovely part of the country."

    The cottage is very warm and comfortable, well equipped and spacious. The swimming pool is fantastic, with clean changing facilities. During the Covid crisis, each of the 4 cottages has its own slot for the pool, and this worked really well for us because we enjoyed having the pool to ourselves. Would definitely return here and also recommend it to friends.

  • "Lovely accommodation, spacious, clean, well equipped."

    Good to have the tennis court and swimming pool, and field/orchard beyond the tennis court. Good situation for going to the Yorkshire coast at Filey and Bridlington etc. Had to swot a few flies, despite the anti-fly decice that was working.

  • "The kitchen was nice, but didn’t like the fireplace in the lounge."

    Bedrooms were spacious but perhaps need a little extra decor added. The swimming pool and tennis court were great but we were disappointed not to be able to use the games room and thought we would be entitled to some refund.
