  • "Love this place second time staying here this time with the parents and their dogs in tow."

    Comfy, homely, relaxing, good location. We will be back.

  • "Lots of the pots were dirty that we had to reclean and we had to rewash."

    Dirty tissue on the floor on arrival. Door to main bedroom locked on arrival and took a very long time to sort out, meaning our first day was wasted sorting this out with a lack of communication. House a nice space with nice living space. Good sized bedrooms.

  • "Lovely welcome touch of flowers, milk, tea and coffee."

    Also bowls for the dogs (very thoughtful). Beds were all made up beautifully. House was clean throughout. Perfect, quiet location although quite a steep incline into Whitby and a busy main road to cross. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay, perfect house for large families.

  • "A very comfortable and well-equipped cottage within an easy walk into Whitby and a bus stop close by."

    The showers are great , the beds are comfortable and there is everything you need in the kitchen. There is ample parking. The owners are very friendly and helpful and they respond immediately to even the smallest of problems. We have already booked for next year.

  • "The cottage was very well presented, clean and well maintained, it is in a fantastic location to access Whitby."

    Our whole party thoroughly enjoyed their stay. We chose the cottage due to the number of bedrooms and bathrooms as well as the location and it did not disappoint. Highly recommend and we will certainly return.

  • "Lovely cottage and perfect for our family gatherings but on this occasion very disappointed with the cleanliness."

    The main bathroom and downstairs toilet floors were particularly dirty with hair and dust and beneath the sofas dust and nail clippings. The key to the property fitted both the front and rear door and we thought this a fire risk having only one key. We emailed the owner on our return at the email address left in the property and have yet to have a response.

  • "Airy Hill farm cottage is great for families and we would definitely recommend it."

    It is clean, spacious, warm and comfortable and has everything needed for a relaxing stay. Having an extra sitting room and conservatory was a bonus as was the parking for four cars. It is only a ten minute walk into Whitby town. We had a great holiday and will definitely stay there again.

    The property was spacious, warm and clean and in a convenient location for exploring Whitby and beyond. We loved our stay there, just what was needed for a relaxing break! Thank you

  • "Bit of a struggle to find but well worth it when I did."

    Lovely view of the Abbey from the adjoining field and plenty of parking. The property had lots of break out space for different people to relax in and having netflix and amazon was a plus, as was the additional 'wine fridge'. Exceptionally clean, particularly the bathrooms, and very comfortable throughout. I would definitely recommend and go again.

    Quiet setting and short distance to Whitby. Could do with attention to garden area and weeds to front.

  • "Hi we have stayed several times at Airey Hill cottages (Kingfisher & Mallard) and found them delightful although getting rather tired now."

    This is the first time staying at the farm cottage which sleeps 9 and we took two small dogs, a sign reminded us to clear up the dog faeces but found the previous occupants had not and there must have been at least 10 lots to clear up before we had got settled in and there were holes in the fencing which our dog found instantly. With room for three couples there is only one key in the key safe and that one key services both front and back doors The patio area had not been power washed for many months. There is a small border at the front of the property in which the weeds were chest height and the windows had not been cleaned for weeks. There is also a step approx 3” into the small lounge from the kitchen and my wife tripped on it three times bruising her arm on the door handle We thought the cost of the rental for two nights was very expensive at £1100 considering we could not enter the property until 4pm on Saturday and had to vacate the property by 9am on the Monday morning. This was the first time the family had been on holiday since the COVID virus started and we enjoyed our short break together but the above points somewhat marred our stay in beautiful Whitby.

  • "This was an excellent holiday house which was perfect for our group of three generations of adults."

    The only fault we found was that despite the house being cleaned to a high standard, the windows and the garden furniture were not clean. The instructions to get there should have said to turn in at the Whitby Sixth Form sign just before the bridge. The location of the property was delightful, being only 10 minutes walk into town and a few minutes from the lovely cinder track path. We will definitely return.

    Plenty of space and a really quiet location as we couldn’t hear the road at all. The main road is very busy though and could be difficult to cross. I would recommend to others.

  • "Having stayed at a number of Sykes Cottages Airy Hill Farm Cottage was disappointing."

    Since the photographs used to advertise the accommodation were taken several years ago the garden has become some what overgrown being surrounded with a fifteen foot hedge in need of trimming/cutting. Hidden among the shrubs was a built in barbecue and the outside area was in need of a good tidy up. Inside the accommodation was fine but lacked the quality and finishing touches we have become to expect from a Sykes Cottage property. Being close to the centre of Whitby was a bonus and that added to fine weather made for a pleasant break.

  • "We have a wonderful time at Airy Hill Cottage."

    The cottage was spacious enough for two families, having the two separate lounge areas. Also the conservatory was a bonus where we enjoyed doing jigsaw puzzles and reading etc. The cottage was well equipped with everything we could possibly need and more. We were all thoroughly pleased with the accommodation and we would highly recommend this to others. We would also consider booking this cottage again at some time in the future. Our English Springer Spaniel, Molly, had a wonderful time playing ball in the garden area and spent most of her days out there waiting for each one of us to play ball with her. The views were lovely from our bedroom (the bedroom with en-suite). The only thing I would say is that the en-suite door needs attention as when I opened the window in the en-suite, the door slammed and I was locked in as the door catch doesn't completely open when you pull the handle down. Fortunately my daughter was in the bedroom and was able to let me out. Also the step from the lounge by the utility area into the kitchen; we took it in turns to forget it was there and kept falling down it; but these are only minor things that require a bit of attention. The cottage is absolutely fantastic and we all had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday there (seven of us in total and the dog). The Hodgkinson Family Birmingham
