    However, parking is an issue no good for anyone with mobility issues.

  • "A beautifully furnished accommodation with everything you would need."

    However the stairs to the bedrooms and bathroom were steep with little if any " bannisters". Also to get to the outside patio via the stone steps was very precarious. Which influenced my ratings

  • "A really lovely cosy cottage in a great location."

    The outdoor seating area is a great spot to escape to after a busy day! Would definitely recommend staying here. There is no washing machine so you need to plan for that, but we found a local launderette (SL Laundries) which was good.

  • "The information book out on a table where it can be seen ."

    The cooker hood was very low and protruding and we both banged our heads on it several times. The living room curtains were very drab and gloomy.

  • "I am not surprised to see a one star rating for this house in other sites."

    Our holiday was unfortunately interrupted by a severe leak from the shower upstairs that poured water through the kitchen, over an appliance and computer we had taken with us, and all over the kitchen electrics. The owner did repair this but at the same time took it upon himself to add a new shower door with heaven knows how many tubes of mastic that stank the house out for the remainder of the weeks stay. The repair was partially successful but the leak resulted in the oven completely failing. So we were inconvenienced and had to purchase take away food. The owner was very difficult in coming forward with any compensation claiming we had been offered alternative accommodation which was totally untrue. Sykes were polite but ineffective and I lost count of how many times I needed to send photos of receipts for additional costs until eventually they succeeded in refunding part of the cost, but the owner was incredibly tight and the compensation did not meet the level of inconvenience and impact on our holiday. The photos of the house look lovely but the kitchen is old and in need of replacement but if the same approach is taken to that as the bathroom then it will be a poor job. I would not recommend Sykes or this house/owner to anyone, but I would recommend going to Whitby and the surrounding areas which are lovely.

From the nearby North York Moors to its Blue Flag beaches, there's something here for everyone. Amongst its many attractions, Whitby holds a charming atmosphere, home to winding streets and hidden alleys, where you can find a wide selection of eateries and shops scattered amongst them. Take a trip to the picturesque harbour and lighthouse to watch the sun set or get involved in some whale watching or a coastal cruise to watch the creatures up close. Climb the famous 199 steps to the Whitby Abbey to immerse yourself with history, or visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum presenting historical and ethnographic exhibition about Cook himself. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay, rich in heritage, wonders and scenic spots, and in easy reach of the bustling towns of Scarborough and Middlesbrough, Whitby is a prime location for exploring all of the delights that Yorkshire has to offer.
