  • "Spacious and clean flat, we enjoyed watching and listening to the birds in the garden."

    Convenient for local shops, far away enough from town to be quiet, but not too far to walk in. Went for long walk to Robin Hood’s Bay along the disused railway. Would come again.

  • "It really felt homely and when the weather prevented us from staying outside all day it was very relaxing to come back to this accommodation to chill out."

    It was just the right distance from the town centre and the local buses.

    A few more glasses and a better DVD player would improve things but really minor points

    It would also have been useful to know that we needed to bring dishwasher tablets and bin bags. Overall a very nice rental.

    Bed so comfy. It had everything we needed.

  • "The apartment was very clean and comfortable, having parking was a bonus also the communal garden to sit in."

    It was about a 20 minute walk into Whitby. Whitby itself was a perfect place to stay, with plenty to see and do. We enjoyed looking round the Abbey, James Cook Museum and Pannet Park. Also walking round the harbour to see the boats, and the footpath by the river Esk. There are regular short boat trips around the harbour and a steam railway. There were many cafes, restaurants and pubs to choose from all serving quality food and drink. We found it a lively and interesting place to stay. Only one negative- the public toilets were either closed or flooded during our stay!

  • "Great base in this lovely area."

    Bempton Cliffs, North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Staithes and Whitby are all well worth a visit.

  • "We are not that familiar with self catering and weren’t sure what to expect."

    We were both very satisfied with all aspects of the accommodation, it was clean and had everything that we required, well placed to walk into town and in a nice area with very little noise. I would recommend this accommodation and would return at a later date if possible.

  • "The DVD player lost sound a number of times when watching films so we had to restart."

    Could be the age of the player. Also maybe a smart tv option so people can watch their own streaming sites like Netflix, usually not a big deal but with COVID-19 we didn’t have much choices to do things on a night.

  • "Our week in apartment 1 at stakesby house was very comfortable and the property is well situated, we felt reasonably safe there regarding the covid 19 pandemic which had given some concern following reports of a flare up in the north east of the Country, when we live in East Anglia a safer area, I am eighty years old and the thought of driving well over 200 miles in to uncertainty was somewhat daunting, but we were quite happy there, a pleasant break in these uncertain times, we will certainly consider Sykes holiday cottages in the future, thank for the wonderful service."

  • "The apartment was scrupulously clean on arrival, exceeding any expectations we had with the current pandemic, when you would expect the accomodation to be spotless."

    It is spacious, comfortable, conveniently located and therefore everything we wanted for our stay. Well done to Joe & Jacqui.

  • "We were pleasantly surprised with the accommodation."

    A small niggle was the poor internet connection, didn't intend to sit over my laptop while on holiday but I couldn't access the website to check my emails, disappointed with this. With reference to the information booklet for residents, it might be worthwhile including information on using Parking Discs in the disc parking zones in Whitby town. I've never came across them before and in my ignorance managed to get a £50 parking charge. I've found out since that the cards can be obtained free from many local shops, my fault, lesson learnt. Lovely accommodation though and the off street parking very welcome. We spent a few evenings in the very nice back garden enjoying a g and t before we walked into the town centre (about 15 mins) and plenty of taxis to bring you back for £5.00. We ate out for our main meals, having a traditional Sunday lunch at The Stables, a Thai meal, an Italians an Indians at restaurants in the town and of course the traditional fish and chips ( recommend Alexanders opposite the Irish Bar in town ) This is the first time we have used Sykes Cottages but it will not be the last, we were talking about booking this place straight away for next year!!!
