“Good place to stay”
Reviewed 30 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012
people found this review helpful

We stayed there in August 2012 as a family, six of us, plus a family friend. At the outset, if no one reads any more, not for anyone who is not fully mobile (lots of steps) (or young children, windows open at floor level) and anyone who is not used to reading lots of signs everywhere in the house. We were met with a welcome pack, a bottle of champagne,and a pack of biscuits (elsewhere with Sykes Cottages we have been met with eggs/bread/milk/tea bags etc.,)., and with wood, coal and fire lighters for the open fire. The cooker is nearly an Aga, and electric, which needs to be on 24/7 to be of any use it really does take some getting used to (it does warm the place) although we managed a full Sunday roast meal (meat was brought to the place frozen) and meals most days on a wing and a prayer, once something is boiling on top it is rather hard to simmer it (takes ages to heat up or cool down). The owner is very friendly and chatty when ringing about the key, and to be honest, does try to explain the cooker's good and bad points. The property has been furbished to quite high standards with off peak radiators around the place (and a little worrying torches everywhere for power cuts) and is ideally situated for a never ending number of walks commencing in and around the village of Rosedale Abbey (and not that far from Whitby). The village is a good place to stay and we, as a family, were united in our praise of the village and would return to the place again. The local Abbey Stores (2/3 mins walk) is stocked with everyday essentials but not for foodstocks for a full cooked meal. It was a shame that this modern converted property did not have all its lights working (not the bulbs, clearly a fuse or wiring problem) and that the cooker hood had no fan control (switch long since departed), for the price paid one expects all to be fully functional. On the whole enjoyed our break and laughs about how long the cooked breakfast was taking (or how quick it was). Lots of videos there ..... and before I forget, no mobile signal but 'free' wifi'.
