The owner popped in to welcome us and made sure we had everything we needed. There are lovely views over the rooftops and bay from the downstairs windows and the decking and garden provide the ideal place to relax and take in the views. The cottage is very comfortable and we couldn't have wished for more. We have already booked again for this coming year.
Property is beautifully situated with spectacular sea and country views. The property has adequate parking for two cars and is close to the village of Robin Hood's Bay. Bathroom accommodation is somewhat limited by having only one very small electric shower. Overall cleanliness was good and, although we never saw the owner, a large vase of flowers greeted us on our arrival. The property does not have Internet although there is a local public Wifi service that offers a very limited connection at cost (10 pounds per week). There were some problems with maintenance, such as a malfunctioning glass shower door that was apt to fall on you, blocked outside drains that overflowed at the side of the property (causing bad smells in the kitchen), and a poorly functioning oven that heated the kitchen rather than cooking the food. Voice messages left for the owner regarding maintenance issues went unanswered and the rental company, Sykes cottages, could only apologize after the fact for our experience.
