This was a perfect place for our short break. The cottage was spotlessly clean and wanted for nothing. The wood burning stove was an added bonus which created cosy nights after our days in the wintry weather. There was plenty of room for the two of us and our dog. A lovely peaceful location away from the hustle and bustle of Scarborough but within easy reach of both Scarborough and Whitby. It could not have been better - we will definitely be back.
September 2019
Surprisingly spacious, immaculate, cosy and comfortable little place with everything we needed in a well kept private grounds. We found this the perfect spot to unwind as did our three year old Retreiver.

The cottage was beautiful, extremely clean with every thing we needed.. There was milk tea coffee and biscuits left for us on a tray when we arrived . The cottage is in a idyllic setting and the owners were very friendly and helpful.
Mrs Sanderson
November 2018
This was our 3rd visit to Honey Bee Cottage so we knew what to expect.. The Cottage is immaculately clean with every facility you could need; the kitchen is quite small but perfectly adequate. I think there is ample room for say, a family of four, although we only travelled as a couple. We saw the owners, Pippa and Graham, only briefly and they are lovely but we didn't have any need to bother them for anything The Cottage is set in a beautiful location and we hope to return one day.

We have just had a few days in honey bee cottage and it was fabulous beautiful little cottage cannot wait to go back
Mrs Whiteside
September 2018
The owner pippa and her husband made us most welcome.. The cottage was lovely and comfortable warm. The ground's we're very good for the dog's to wander without getting out. The cottage was well placed for visiting other part's of the coastline.
Mrs Swann
September 2018
The cottage was fantastic and the owners were lovely.. Everywhere we wanted to go was in close proximity to the cottage so we didn't have to drive to far. It was great that we were able to take the dog with us and the owners also have a lovely dog called Ginney. We are hoping to go back next year.
Mr Free

Great place, good location, very clean cottage and Phipps and Graham are very nice people and very helpful.. Will be going back again.
Mrs Lewis

Loved the cottage and the area.. My only gripe with Sykes is you send too many emails!
Mr Cosgrove
June 2018
My two dogs enjoyed the holiday very much.. They were able to relax outside in a way they can’t at home. Lots of good walks in the area, great scenery. Property was fine, though being tall and staying in an old cottage built for a smaller generation has its problems. Bumped my head numerous times and had to walk around like Quasimodo. Owners living on site were lovely and extremely helpful. Only real drawback for me was the poor broadband connection. I used up all my month’s data in four days. A small price to pay however.
June 2018
We had a lovely weekend in Honey Bee Cottage.. It was just as it said it was and it had everything we needed. The cottage was so pretty and the views were breathtaking and extremely beautiful. On our journey home we chatted about when we could come again. We will definitely rebook and I’m looking forward to it already.

Mrs Mitchell

Honey Bee cottage is a hidden gem, beautifully kept, immaculately clean and with everything you could possibly need.. The cottage has gorgeous views from the front door, even the drive leading up to Honey Bee is a pleasure, very well kept and was lined with daffodils on our visit. The owners and their dog were lovely and very welcoming, definitely will return very soon!
Mrs Stuart

The cottage is picture perfect and is to the highest standards and the hosts are warm and friendly and go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and are so helpful..
Miss Harrison

Honey bee cottage was a stunning cottage in a beautiful location and I will 100% be returning
Mr Saveall
March 2018
Beautiful cottage in a rural/coastal location.. Facilities covered all our needs and a log burning stove in the living area was the icing on the cake especially with the snow over the weekend. Excellent local walks and Whitby and Scarborough just on the door step. We will return soon.
Mr Borwick
February 2018
This is the second time that I have booked a property with yourselves - I would like to confirm that on both occasions the overall package was outstanding.. I will certainly book with you again.
Mrs Levesley
December 2017
This was the most wonderful cottage we have ever stayed in.. It absolutely oozes charm and character and I loved the small children's bedrooms, how cute. The owners had thought of everything and we wanted for nothing during our stay. The log burner just added to the cost charm of this cottage making every evening cosy. The location was perfect for visiting the coast and the walks were fantastic. Thank you to Pippa and Graham (and of course Ginny the dog), the bottle of Prosecco for New Years Eve was also a wonderful pleasant surprise. We will be visiting again .
November 2017
This is easily our favourite cottage! Seems in the middle of nowhere yet only 7 miles from Scarborough and 12 from Whitby, the cottage is set in extensive grounds overlooking beautiful Moors scenery. Inside it is so cozy, ideal for a couple, although it sleeps 4 two of the bedrooms are more suited to children I think. The cottage has been imaginatively restored from former farm buldings with quaint beams and a lovely wood burning stove, it has a smallish kitchen but one that is really well equipped with everything you could possibly need and no detail has been overlooked. It’s dog friendly too which is a bonus, The owners, who live on site, are lovely, so friendly and accommodating. This is our second visit and we hope to return one day.

Mrs Elliott

The cottage was warm and comfortable and the owners (and their wonderful dog Ginny) were very welcoming and friendly. We love the area and hope to be back at Honey Bee Cottage in the future.
Ms Allwood
April 2016
What a lovely cottage! The fixtures and fittings were superb; lovely cushions, pottery, pictures, curtains and upholstery. We felt as though we were staying in someone's house. The owner, was very friendly and welcoming. The cottage was well placed for the Cleveland Way and Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay. We will definitely go back!
Mr Robbins
April 2016
This was a nice peaceful location, with comfortable beds and overall cleanliness was excellent. Owners were very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely weekend in an ideal location for visiting some of the many villages and towns on the Yorkshire coast.
Mrs Street
March 2016
A lovely cottage with great facilities and little extras too. In a wonderful location, an excellent base to get to the nearby towns, beaches and moors.
Miss Maddock

Absolutely fantastic holiday. Accommodation was superb. We have stayed twice now and will go again.
Mr Marrington
November 2015
A lovely little cottage, and the owners were so friendly and helpful. Will certainly be returning.
October 2015
The cottage lived up to the description and reviews and the scenery, local walks etc. are superb. The only reason I didn't give it 5/5 is because I managed to scrape the skin off my head (no hair for protection) on the low beams upstairs 3 times, the water taps in the kitchen sink turn the wrong way ending up in me getting rather wet a number of times and the pillows were rather firm. Despite this I would definitely return
July 2015
Myself, wife and two children have just returned home from staying here for a week. As the title suggests this was a great place to stay. The peaceful location is fantastic and you have all the facilities you need. The house was spotless when we arrived with nice touches such as soap, milk and towels, which you don't always get. The cottage is compact but was big enough for us. The two single rooms are advertised as children's rooms and they were exactly that. The beams give the cottage character but if you are 6ft tall watch your head in places. I liked the WiFi and the digi tv and my daughter liked the ponies in the fields just outside. There are sheep and cattle nearby as well. There are a few pubs nearby and plenty of walks, however we spent most of our time touring about in the car. All in all it is an idyllic place to stay, just watch your head in places
Mrs Hounslow
April 2015
A cosy warm, well equipped cottage with beautiful views.
Mrs Cross
April 2015
The cottage, the owners and resident animals were all lovely. The area was great for coastal sightseeing and also for getting onto the moors for a walk. We encountered wildlife at every turn; from puffins and woodpeckers to barn owls, roe deer and highland cows. Spring has definitely sprung!
Mrs Hall
January 2015
The cottage is so beautiful and surrounded by the most wonderful countryside. The owners were extremely helpful with local information and nothing was too much trouble. We were made very welcome and it was so nice to be able to walk our puppy safely in the lovely grounds. We would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a nice tranquil break and give it 5 stars.
January 2015
I am torn about making this entry because I would rather keep this place secret! Weekend visit before Christmas. family two kids and dog. Log burner roaring away it couldn't get much better. This is our second visit this year having spent a week here in the summer. The cottage itself is fantastic. Spotless upon arrival with everything you need no matter how long your stay is for. Dont be fooled that its a cottage it is surprisingly roomy.Graham and Pippa are fantastic hosts, There if needed but not hovering in the background. Its a fantastic location for any of the main east coast resorts or simply some walking on the beaches depending on the time of year.. I would have no problem whatsoever in wholeheartedly recommending Honey Bee Cottage (Unfortunately!)
Mr Gay

Miss Staples

From the moment we arrived everything was perfect; the location and the first impressions of Honey Bee. The linen provided was fresh, clean and very luxurious, all beds were made and Egyptian cotton towels laid out on the bed for us. There's everything you need at Honey Bee - from tea towels to cooking tongs, pint glasses to wine glasses.
Mr Gray

We liked the lot, beautiful cottage scenery was stunning. Great owner, so friendly.

The cottage was in a beautiful setting, gardens/grounds were very well looked after. A very professional set up.
March 2014
Summer Bee cottage has everything you would want situated in a quiet secluded valley not far from Robin Hoods Bay and is dog friendly. It has 2 bedrooms, central heating. The kitchen is well appointed with washer/drier, dish washer etc and even has a log burner in the living area. The owners are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. When you arrive there is a small tray of tea, coffee, milk and biscuits to welcome you. there is 1 double bed room with a comfy bed but you do have to mind your head as i found to my cost as the beams are very low. the second bedroom is 2 single beds. we have stayed regularly over the past few years and it has always been excellent. Thanks
Mr Bridle
February 2014
Great location. Friendly owners, comfy cottage, warm, good for kids, good access to Scarborough and Whitby and a lovely wood fire. Fantastic views of the stars through the skylights in the bedrooms!
Mr Pears
February 2014
Friendly people owned the property. Really good location for walking and good pubs within a short drive or reasonable walking distance. The immediate area was really good for getting out with our dog rather than having to drive somewhere first to walk him. We all liked this property and will be looking to return later.
Mrs Tansley
January 2014
Lovely clean and cosy cottage. Loved the comfy main bed and bedding. All home comforts. Lovely touch of tea tray and Champagne for New Year! Small bedrooms are as described for small children only. Great starting point for access to fantastic walks. Lovely friendly owners. Love the farm animals!
Mrs Sharpe
December 2013
The setting and peace. Location ideal, even for poor walkers, as access to Scarborough / Whitby and the Eskdale villages is excellent via car and still able to return to peace and quiet. Owners completely approachable for any help or information needed.
December 2013
A very well appointed,cosy cottage in a lovely part of the countryside.We had everything we needed,apart from sunshine! A thoughtful touch was the welcome tray with local cookies,much appreciated. Very handy location for trips out into the stunning countryside and not too far to the shops. The owners were very friendly and helpful and their lovely dog,Ginny provided daily entertainment for our Staffy,Harry. His first holiday romance!! We will definitely return. Loved the Guinea fowl,sheep and Highland cattle too.

A lovely cottage in a stunning location. Everything we needed for a fabulous holiday. Situated in a lovely part of Yorkshire within easy reach of lots of interesting places. We would highly recommend Honey Bee Cottage and hope to return soon.
Kath M
October 2013
We had a 6 night stay in October and found the cottage to be clean and cosy. It was very extensively equipped with everything you could need - a real home from home. The views were beautiful, we loved the low window in the main bedroom where you could lie in bed and view the countryside. The other bedrooms very small but adequate, even for an adult we thought. Some low beams though so watch your head if you are tall - I was OK at 5 foot 2! We didnt try the log burner as the weather was beautiful! The owners are very approachable and offered good advice on local pubs and walks etc. Loved the guinae fowl peeping in through the bathroom window! Would recommend this cottage to anyone.
Mr Mason
September 2013
Fantastic cottage, hosts, scenery, and as it turned out, weather. The owners were very friendly and informative, and the cottage was stunning. There are very few places in the UK, or the world, that can hold a candle to the beauty of this location. And if you like animals, this place is a perfect menagerie with various farm animals, and enough wildlife to keep David Attenborough happy.
August 2013
Honey Bee cottage is a superbly situated cottage, well equipped and beautifully decorated. The location while peaceful is still within easy reach of Robin Hood's Bay, Scarborough and Whitby. Plenty of areas for walks and children to play. The cottage itself was very cosy with lovely comfy beds and the luxury of a choice of a bath or a shower at the end of a busy day. Pippa and Graham who own the cottage were very friendly and helpful and both the children loved Ginny (the dog).
July 2013
We stayed for one week in July , the cottage was of a great standard cosy and charming and passed our expectations . In a great setting and ideal for exploring the surrounding countryside , the owners graham and pippa were extremely helpful . We had two eleven year olds with us and there was plenty room outside to play and visit the ponies on the farm . We would definitely go back again .
Mrs Cunningham
May 2013
What a beautiful cottage with wonderful owners and we were made very welcome The standard of detail was fantastic, very dog friendly too; I have a Border Collie who loves to look round. Very peaceful location. My mum loved the sky lights in the main bedroom as she just looked at the stars all night.
May 2013
Stayed in this cottage in February. Was a lovely, cosy cottage in beautiful surroundings. Ill definitely be coming back and staying here again and would recommend it to anyone.
April 2013
Stayed in Honey Bee in early 2013. The property is lovely, spotlessly clean and well presented. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners - even digging our car out of the snow! Would go again without question.
Mr Quayle
March 2013
Peaceful location, away from it all. Playing with the log burner, 8 bags of logs burnt in one week!
March 2013
I have just stayed at this beautiful and delightful cottage with my wife, daughter and dog for 3 nights. We were made very welcome by the owners who were also very helpful and forthcoming concerning what to do and places to eat and visit. The cottage is a stunnung little farmhouse style cottage. The amenities in the cottage are excellent and the tray with biscuits on arrival is a very nice touch. The location is perfect,tremendous views,peace and quiet and is not far from many wonderful walks. Ideally situated for visiting Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Goathland and various other places. Will definitely be going back, 10/10
Mr Waltham
February 2013
The general standard of the cottage was excellent. We were met by the owner, who spent a considerable time helping get our car out of a snow drift, and carrying our belongings to the cottage.
September 2012
The location was perfect,tremendous views,peace and quiet and not far from many places of outstanding beauty and national interest. The accommadation was very compact, the main bedroom was fine but the two singles were quite claustrophobic which was such a pity. It was difficult to even get dressed in them! and no storage. The owners were lovely, and very helpful, always around in case we needed anything. Ideal for a couple with two small children! Also great that they accepted pets.
Mrs Hardon

The holiday was just wonderful. The house was gorgeous, the garden was just amazing and so safe for our children. The cows, horses and sheep were an added attraction and the area was so peaceful.
Mr Cooper
July 2012
Lovely property in a excellent area with great views. Very friendly and welcoming owners. We certainly had a relaxing holiday. Would love to go again.
Mrs Tobler
July 2012
Our choice of Honey Bee Cottage made our holiday. While never at a loss for things to do in the area, we were always so happy to come home. It was lovely to be able to walk to Hayburn Wyke for Sunday lunch, or turn the other way out the door and access footpaths through wild flowers and down to streams. Whenever we missed our pets back home, the ponies were happy to fill in, but the highlight for my son had to be brushing the gentle Highland Cattle! I was delighted with the quality of all the work and choices of our hosts. We will always treasure the memory of our stay there. It is a special place.
Mr Mrs Watson

The location and surroundings as well as the cottage were superb! Discreet but friendly owners. A tranquil but very interesting area to enjoy.
January 2012
This the third time that we have booked our holiday with Sykes and we can't speak highly enough of the company as a whole, from the customer services staff when you book your holiday,all the way throught to the owners of the cottages themselves. They are always friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make sure that you have a fantastic holiday. Honey Bee cottage is a little treasure, set next to the owners home and in acres of farm land, it was beautifully decorated and scrupiously clean,the decor was well thought out and in keeping with the age of the cottage. The owners were very friendly and offered up suggestions of where the best pubs and eating places were. The location of the cottage meant that we were between Scarbough and Whitby, so we were ideally placed to visit their beachs or drive over to the moors too Goathland and the Hole of Horcum. The best part of the holidays was waking up to the sound of cows mooing in the field behind the cottage, the breathtaking sunsets and sunrises and finding the owners dog Ginny outside the front door waiting for her home cooked breakfast sausage every morning and not forgetting the Highland cattle and the owners ponies that would gallop up the field to greet us whenever we left or came back to the cottage.
Mrs Strachan
November 2011
The location of the cottage was excellent as was the view. The owners were friendly and very helpful. The cottage itself was warm, cosy, beautifully furnished and the comfort factor of the double bed is to die for! The owners obviously have put a lot of thought and effort into making it a real home-from-home.
Mr Callender

Mrs Ratcliffe

Loved everything. The whole holiday was absolutely fantastic. The owners were the best hosts, generous, friendly and helpful. Couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. The cottage was gorgeous and has everything you could need. It's location is superb and it's a perfect base for any location along the east coast. We will definitely return for another visit. It was difficult to get a mobile phone signal but we wanted to get away from it all so this was not a problem!
May 2011
We loved the cottage. It was very clean and decorated to a very high standard. The cottage had everything you would need for a short stay, there was even a welcome basket with tea and biscuits and a fresh pint of milk in the fridge. My husband and I took advantage of the amazing scenery and walks in the area while the others went to visit nearby whitby and scarborough. Recommended for a relaxing break.
Mr Darvell
March 2011
Honey Bee Cottage was outstanding, the owners were very attentive to all of our needs and the surrounding areas were full of opportunities for all ages and abilities. The highlight was seeing seals on the rocks at Ravenscar.
Mrs Payne
March 2011
The cottage was beautiful, the location was fantastic for walking and for visiting local beaches. Lots of friendly local pubs or 20 mins in the car to Scarborough or Whitby meant we never ran out of things to do.

Our second visit to this remote and wonderful retreat. Snow ensured we had to walk the final quarter of a mile to the property. The owners who live adjacent were wonderful, helping with our every need. The cottage was warm and cosy, we had the log burner going very well. We enjoyed the snow, skiing and sledging. We will be back.

December 2009
A excellent cottage in a superb location. The owners were very helpfull nothing was to much trouble. Our dog was also made very welcome. If you like walking this location is also excellent, many walks within 2 miles which are also dog friendly. If you pick this cottage you will return as many have done
December 2009
The cottage was in a lovely setting, with beautiful views. The village it was located in was charming. We were met by the owners when we arrived, and they were very friendly. The cottage was charming but rather small. It did have three bedrooms but the two single rooms were tiny. The living space also was rather small for four people. The garden area attached to the cottage was very nice. The amenities in the cottage were good, but there was no drying space for clothing.
Mr Toplis
August 2009
Owners' local knowledge was very useful and they suggested great places not generally found in tourist information. Nice to walk in and find milk, sugar and tea ready to have after a long journey. First time in a cottage and we would definitely do again next year.
Mr Rae

Mr Huntington
November 2008
This was our 2nd stay at Honey Bee Cottage this year, we love everything about it. The cottage is in a perfect location for a quiet and relaxing break but also close enough to large towns should you decide to venture out. Welcoming and friendly owners who leave you alone to enjoy your break but always offer their services should they be required which in itself is a comfort.
Mr Whitworth

Great location, seclusion, log fire, parking

We loved the peaceful location, the scenery, the log fire, the quaint look of the property and all of the little extras. Also, we appreciated the books, playing cards etc. The cottage was warm and cosy and it had all home comforts, like a dishwasher, microwave etc. The area had lots to see and do, plus lots of lovely restaurants and pub meals within a few miles radius. We will definitely return.

The owners were extremely friendly and made us very welcome. Our daughter loved the animals they had and was delighted when a couple of baby highland cattle arrived during our stay, even more so when she saw them because they looked like little teddy bears.

The cottage was in a really stunning location - sea/country views. With a toddler it was brilliant having the animals on site and small walks to do straight from the property. The cottage was beautifully decorated and very clean. It felt like a really special rural retreat.

Loved the location, a very homely cottage to come back to. Views were stunning. Felt this cottage was excellent value for money. The owners were very friendly but left us to our own devices. Although quite an isolated spot nothing was too far away. Wonderful for a week of rest and relaxation, we wouldnt hesitate to recommend it.

Mrs Milner

A friendly welcome. Away from it all and off the beaten track, literally. My granddaughter loved the animals close at hand, and we could have just sat outside the cottage and enjoyed, rather than touring it was so peaceful. The cottage was clean and cosy.
Miss Halfpenny

We've never stayed in a cottage for a holiday before, we usually spend all day sight-seeing and only sleep wherever we've booked accommodation! It was lovely to relax and enjoy the cottage as much as we enjoyed seeing what we'd come to robin hood's bay/whitby for. It was fantastic value (we'd pay this to stay bedbreakfast), and similar to other peoples' comments in the visitor's book...we had lots planned to do outdoors but felt so happy inside that we spent quite a bit of time there. A fantastic short break!
Mrs Porter

The cottage had a lovely homely feel about it and the owners were very kind and helpful. The level of equipment was excellent. Sat in the lounge with the log burning stove on as the snow and wild howled around the cottage, we felt really snug!

We were surprised to be welcomed with a tray of tea and biscuits and the fresh flower arrangements, the cottage was more than we expected. Our children loved their bedrooms and that they were near to the horses and rabbits. We liked to thank you for your big help to book our holiday with you within a few days.
