“noisy and damp”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

we arranged to stay in this cottage through Sykes cottages and was asked to telephone the owner 48hrs prior to our arrival for the key arrangements and this we did he told my wife to call again 20 mins before we arrived which we did only the call went to voice mail. We arrived and the owner had still not returned our call but as we pulled up in front of the cottage a young woman appeared and gave us the keys. Next door the cottage was occupied by the owners daughter who informed us that they had a flood a few weeks earlier and the main road in and out was blocked off and the only road in and out was up and down a 1 in 4 hill which was in places not wide enough for two cars to pass. This we had found out when we arrived to see the road diversion signs. No one from Sykes cottages had bothered to inform us of the floods. We arrived on a Friday and the weekend passed uneventful but we did notice how damp the cottage felt. The kitchen was very dark and you had to have the light on almost all the time you were in there. The cottage itself was quite nice and we were visiting the surrounding area. Then came Sunday night we were woken by the noise next door as our bedroom backed onto their bathroom and they had a bedroom above their lounge. 6am we were woken again and could not go back to sleep with the noise and at 7.30am eventually got up. The next night and morning was a repeat again we were up at just after 7 am . We were both fed up with the noise so decided to cut short our holiday and go home.

Management Response
27 Sep 2013
Thank you for your TripAdvisor feedback, there is an owner contact folder for customers who require assistance or have any queries regarding the local area or the property. Given the opportunity, the owner would have been delighted to assist with any questions or explanations regarding the local flood damage which fortunately only affected the nearby bridge and did not impact the property.

Original holiday "pulled" from under our feet six weeks before holiday date. Hastily found this little gem. If you`re looking for a quiet,tanqill relaxing break then look no further. What a lovely place to stay. A home away from home with everything you would possibly need inside this delightful converted pit pony stables. 5 minute walk into the village of Skinningrove, a bit further to the beach.
Great central place to visit Redcar,Saltburn, Whitby and many other places. A local bus stopped outside the gravelled driveway (although not used by us a very frequent service ) Owners family lived in the cottage next door so always on hand if we needed anything. Large folder on hall stand had brochures,pamphlets for all local attractions plus instructions on how to use all appliances inside the cottage. Liked it so much within 4 days of coming home booked again for next year, a thing we have never done before

“A Beautiful Home Away From Home.”
Reviewed 31 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This spotless new-build cottage is in the village of Skinningrove, with the Mining Museum a 3 minute walk away, and the beach a leisurely 10 minute stroll down the road. A lot of thought has gone into the decor and the furnishings, and the comfort of the guests, and it shows. The 32" Freeview TV, the high-backed dining chairs, and the washer/dryer in the kitchen tell you that your hosts Geoff & Val have thought of those little things that make your stay so enjoyable. And the "Welcome Pack"? Deliciously thoughtful!
This corner of North Yorkshire is a visitor's delight, from the incredible beach at Saltburn-by-the-Sea, to Rievaulx Abbey and Helmsley, to the wonderful Ryedale Folk Museum in Hutton-le-Hole, and the lovely welcoming town of Guisborough.
The weather was incredibly kind to us (a high of 27"), and an after-dinner drink sitting outside the cottage watching the sun go down, was the perfect topping to some great days.
Geoff & Val, along with Kelly & Steve, and Joanna, made us feel so welcome and at home, we felt almost like part of the family. Many, many thanks to all of them.
Any downside? Only one. The cottage was booked the week before and the week after our visit, and sadly we had to return home after only 7 nights!
