Miss Foss, September 2020

Hayloft cottage is just as it appears on the listing, with the added bonus of a lovely little sheltered patio with garden furniture at the back.. The cottage felt absolutely clean and safe, with everything we needed, and lovely finishing touches throughout. We filled our days visiting places recommended by Cara, the owner, and were not disappointed! A brilliant couple of days away, would highly recommend.

I spent 3 days in this lovely cottage with my family so that we could explore the local area and attend Whitby Goth Weekend.. The accommodation was everything we hoped it would be; clean, homely and furnished to a high standard. As a bonus it was set in an idyllic location in beautiful countryside, with fantastic views out to sea. I couldn't recommend this property highly enough and the owners should rightly be very proud of it.

Wonderful cottage, great location.. Lovely walks straight from doorstep for dogs and beautiful area to explore.
September 2018
Took our 9 month old twins and two small dogs. Had to move settees together due to twins not sitting properly yet and falling forward onto floor. This should not be an issue as to the owner as they were moved back but due to this and leaving the dogs alone for an hour the owner asked us to leave on day 3 of our holiday. Would not recommend
Mr Ainge

Mrs Jennison

A lovely comfortable cottage set in delightful surroundings.. The cottage had everything we needed. The heating was excellent, which was particularly important due to the inclement weather.
Mr Foster
May 2018
Hayloft is a wonderful cottage in a beautiful setting.. This was our third booking here and would return in a heartbeat. Our 2 springer spaniels settle in very well and there are so many amazing walks to take them on. The cottage is superbly equipped and very comfortable and although the cottages are next to the owners home you are never disturbed yet are made to feel extremely welcome and comfortable. I have highly recommended this cottage to friends and family and will continue to do so.
Ms Cooper

Lovely cottage in a beautiful place.. Need a car as there's not much in immediate vicinity, pub about one mile away serving good food. Well placed for visits to Whitby to the North and Scarborough to the South and all the lovely little fishing villages in between. Cottage well equipped, owners very friendly.
Mrs Jennison

Everything at the cottage was great.. It is in the perfect location for exploring the North Yorkshire Moors. The cottage is very comfortably fitted out with everything provided. There was a small enclosed garden, perfect for our dogs and convenient parking. The owners were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Can't wait for next year.
Mr Brock

Very friendly and welcoming hosts, lovely farm cottage in a beautiful location, an ideal spot for exploring the Yorkshire coast.. Only drawbacks were no wifi, and the smallest TV I have ever seen!

The cottage was warm, clean and welcoming. Everything you would need was supplied in the kitchen. Real Christmas tree was a lovely touch to our New Year break. Owners and their lovely dog were very friendly. Great location for many walks but remember essentials as no local shops. We travelled in to Whitby to Sainsburys to stock up for our stay. Would stay again

March 2013
Just had a lovely 3 days at this cottage. it was spotlessly clean and had a lovely new feeling. The bathroom and kitchen were sparkling and well fitted out - we couldn't ask for more in terms of amenities either. It has everything you need and is very pet friendly. Definitely 4 star at least. The locals were very welcoming and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our visits to the local pubs and walks around the area. For exploring the North Yorkshire Moors this was a perfect location to stay. Would definitely go back.

The enclosed garden was a real bonus especially for a dog friendly place. The décor and furnishings were lovely, I especially liked the master bedroom. Fantastic kitchen facilities, nothing was forgotten.
A Holiday Lettings verified reviewer
November 2012
The cottage was positioned well so it was easy access to scarborough and whitby. It was spotlessly clean well equipped however it did not have a DVD player as stated in the information. This was not a problem as we read and watched TV, the only minor complaint would be , I could have done with a wall mirror in the double bedroom there was a small free standing mirror but it was difficult to see to dry my hair . All in all it was great and we would recommend the cottage to other prospective holidaymakers
Mr Sharman
October 2012
It was was nice to come back after a long day of walking with the dogs. The house was a welcoming place to come back to, warm and cosy.
Dr John
October 2012
The Hayloft is a lovely cottage with excellent standards of decor and facilities. The interior mixes clean and modern with a traditional building fantastically. Location is very well placed for Whitby and Scarborough, with local beaches even closer. The owners were friendly and welcoming, and the farm dog even more so! The booking process through Sykes Cottages was easy and friendly, and the documentation, directions, etc all very good.
September 2012
The owners have done an excellent job in converting this former hayloft into a very comfortable and well equipeed holiday cottage. The ground floor is open plan with a spacious kitchen area and a sitting and dining area. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside the back door there is an enclosed patio/garden with picnic bench. The owners and their dog are ver friendly and helpful. They only live just across the courtyard so are easy to contact if any problems. The cottage is great for dog owners as they allow up to two dogs to stay and reading through the guest book this was very much appreciated. Their is a lot of useful information in the cottage for dog owners as well. It is very well situated, close to the coast and a short drive to Scarborough and Whitby. Would certainly recommend this cottage and would like to come back here.
Dr Burgoyne
August 2012
The Hayloft was a lovely cottage with a great combination of character but fully modern inside. We received a warm welcome from the owners and even more from the farm dog! The cottage location was excellent for Whitby and the coast, and the info provided directed us to a wonderful beach and a dog-friendly pub with great food.
Mr Gornall

Mrs Horsfield
July 2012
A very peaceful and tranquil property in the heart of North Yorkshire. Fantastic views from the farm and very quiet location. Ideal for getting away from it all, yet only twenty minutes from Scarborough or Whitby.
January 2012
The cottage is well equipped and we had a 'home from home' experience. We thought the real Christmas tree and the box of chocolates left by the owners was a nice touch. The cottage is ideally located as it is literally half way between Scarborough and Whitby - two of our favourite places. We actually spent some of Christmas day on the beach, something we have all wanted to do but have never managed until now.
Mr Eccleston
November 2011
The location for ourselves was excellent as we like to get out and about. The cottage was fantastic in a lovely area with so much to explore. The owners were very nice, very welcoming people and with very nice children. I do have to mention Abby there wonderful dog, she was fantastic.Sykes did us proud!

We have three dogs ao are always looking for cottages where we can take the dogs. The cottage was very clean and had a secure rear garden where we could let the dogs out. It was ideally situated for local walks or getting out to see the eastern part of the North York Moors. We will definately be going back again
September 2010
Our stay at Hayloft cottage was excellent. The cottage itself was picture postcard perfect and it's location was idyllic with fantastic views down the yorkshire coast to the sea. With a young family we were able to safely take long walks down the country roads as there was little if any traffic for most of the time. It served us as a great base to visit all the beautiful fishing villages dotted along the coast as well as the larger towns of Whitby and Scarborough. The kids loved the holiday and our youngest fell in love with the owners pet dog, who is quite possibely the most patient and gentle dog I have ever come in contact with. All in all a fantastic place to stay.

Although the cottage was in a lovely and very peaceful location, it was only a couple of miles from the A171 road so it was easy to get to the main road for our various journeys throughout the week. Had a great time and the owner welcomed our 2 dogs, which is sometimes a problem as some only allow 1.
Dr Jones

We liked the quiet location on a lovely farm with the North Sea visible in the distance. The property was fitted out quite recently and is very modern.
