We have had a real nice time staying in the cottage.. Everything perfect. Our dog Bella did not want to go home. The caretakers keith and Mandy were very efficient when we had a little problem and very friendly. Thank you Keith and Mandy for a very clean cottage. ✅

Details of the cottage were accurate.. Had regular information and reminders on the run up to the holiday. Able to email the owner of the cottage directly and questions were answered almost immediately. The cottage was in Staithes, N.Yorkshire near Whitby. It was a stunning location. A quaint little harbour village. A single narrow cobbled street, with a couple of pubs and and shops. The cottage was a former fisherman's cottage full of original features. It was cosy and warm with a log burner.

From booking to arriving at the property everything was so easy.. We had the most delightful week in a lovely property in a fabulous place and to make it perfect we could take our dog. Definitely use Sykes again. Thank you.

We loved the cottage and all its character.. It's was so cosy and warm. We had views of the sea from different rooms which was really nice. The court yard was another good area to sit out with the owners providing outdoor table and chairs. We will be booking this cottage again.

Would recomend booking parking ticket online as the visitor centre wasn't open when we got there.. We had to keep topping up the meter every day until it opened 4 days later! Also the yard outside would have benefited from a sweep and a few pots with flowers.It looked a bit unloved and not at all like the pics shown.

We had a lovely time in Staithes so overall it was a good place to stay and cottage was perfectly adequate for the price and what we needed.. So please don’t take this as complaints but here are some suggestions from us: -twin beds were pretty uncomfortable as spring in mattress was digging into our back. You would agree if you slept on the beds. I would suggest to put some mattress pad if you don’t want replace them - no Wi-fi was fine if we get normal reception in the house. We had 3 different mb services between us and no one had any service. We can’t even make or receive a call unless we go to the pub to use their wifi. - water pressure was very strange and had difficulty to run the bath even we left a tap half open. -boiler didn’t work on Saturday and had no heating for a while. -drains outside smells pretty bad - please check all light bulbs are working -understand you can unload at the bottom of the hill. But it wasn’t clear how far we have to park and steep hill and steps to carry all the luggage to the cottage.

Property was initially very cold and dissapointed that there wasn't any wood for fire on our arrival.. We raised problem with heating and it was dealt with and resolved very quickly. Whilst the property is old it could benefit from a bit of updating. The private courtyard was perfect for the dog, very safe and secure.

Lovely cottage in our favourite Staithes.. Sunny private courtyard and bonus. Tricky and exhausting logistics with unloading luggage but worth it!!

This is our second visit to Grimes cottage and we will almost certainly revisit.. We did feel however that it was looking a little tired in places but nevertheless a little gem , we love it !

Only downside is the car park being at the top of the hill due to the geography of Staithes, the hill climb and descent became tedious every day..
