    “We booked a short stay for 3 nights and stayed for just one of them.”

    The single wood door between us and the adjacent cottage may as well have not existed. The people next door had very noisy children and tv on until at least 2.00am. Not blaming them as tey were just havingba good time but they might as well have been staying in our cottage as the noise insulation is non existent. WE couldn,t stay another night. I have lodged a complaint with the owners and Sykes cottages and had no reply whatsoever. Thoroughy disgusted with both and wouldn,t touch either with a ...

Not blaming them as tey were just havingba good time but they might as well have been staying in our cottage as the noise insulation is non existent. WE couldn,t stay another night. I have lodged a complaint with the owners and Sykes cottages and had no reply whatsoever. Thoroughy disgusted with both and wouldn,t touch either with a bargepole. Beware and don,t stay in this cottage if you want a nights sleep.

    Hi Alan I am very sorry to hear you had a disappointing stay in the small barn. The connection between the two properties is something we are aware of and will try to find a solution ASAP. We have also privately responded to Sykes in this regard so hopefully, you will be happy with this outcome. Property Owner

About the location

STAITHES

Whitby 10 miles.

The charming and sleepy seaside village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and back alleys, is something of an artist’s dream. Its pretty houses and cottages are clustered around the old harbour and surrounded by high craggy cliffs on three sides, with a sheltered sandy beach set amongst the rocky coastline. The village can claim connections with Captain Cook who was apprenticed to a draper near the harbour. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms. Staithes is still home to an RNLI lifeboat station and a small fleet of cobles (fishing boats) landing fish, crab and lobster, with boat trips for birdwatching, fishing and even whale watching available. It’s also the location of the popular BBC children’s TV series, Old Jack’s Boat. Staithes has a strong attraction for artists, with an annual Art and Heritage Festival, galleries and artists studios with art courses and workshops regularly on offer. There’s a free Illusion Trail, which guides visitors around the network of ginnels (alleyways), with trail guides available locally. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliff to the sea’s edge. Altogether a superb base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast, visiting the larger resorts of Whitby or Scarborough and enjoying the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park.
