A charming, detached holiday home resting in Flixton near Folkton and Cayton, North Yorkshire.Just a 10-minute drive from Filey and a 20-minute drive from Scarborough. This property has the luxury of having a Hot tub and wood-burning stove, with a lovely enclosed garden. Lots of lovely neighboring villages nearby. Filey 5.5 miles; Scarborough 7.8 miles; Malton 17.7 miles.

The cottage has a awful smell which can only be described as wet dog the plug ins did not disguise this ,the sofa needs a deep clean

A few finishing touches would be helpful - no slip mat in bath or blind at the window a drainer maybe in the kitchen for dishes. Lounge blinds broken cord and no child safety fasteners .Back bedroom blind only closes not tilts . When we turned on the hot tub it had a brown rim around looking like false tan off someone before us which we cleaned before use.

Layout

April Cottage is a detached cottage in Flixton, Scarborough, that is ideal for families to spend quality time together. There is an enclosed garden with a hot tub for evening relaxation, as well as a wood-burning heater in the living area to keep you warm during the day. Enter the open-plan living area, which includes a sitting room with a corner sofa, a coffee table, and a Smart TV for some relaxation. Gather around the dining table to share meals, which may be cooked in the modern kitchen area, which includes an electric oven and stove. Head outside to the fenced back yard, where you may enjoy cool beverages on the picnic seat and watch the sunset from the bubbling hot tub on summer evenings. When the night falls, retreat inside and climb the stairs to one of three elegantly decorated bedrooms: a zip/link super-king-size with walk-in closet, a king-size, or a single bedroom. Start your day with a relaxing dip in the tub or a quick rinse in the overhead shower, all while your towel warms and dries on the heated rail.

Firstly we had a great holiday as the weather was fantastic. The cottage however was a little disappointing and not up to the usual standards we would expect for a holiday let. The main issue was the wet dog smell in the main living area coming from the sofa. For a pet free cottage this was not what we would expect and we had to keep the windows open to stop the smell from building up. We spoke to the owners mid week and they informed us that they were replacing the carpet and sofa in that room as soon as we had left, this didn't help us but will hopefully resolve the issue for the future guests. The property could do with some finishing touches, repainting for example, this seems to have been done here and there but not full walls and some walls were quite dirty or marked. The main living areas were clean but there were very dusty places all over, corners of the living room, under the wall mounted heaters etc. The hot tub was one of the main reasons we booked the property and this got progressively cloudy as our holiday progressed. The information left in the property said that the owners would check this every day but this wasn't happening. We arrived on Friday and someone came very early Monday morning but didn't do anything. We called Sykes to complain on the Wednesday and following a conversation with the owner they came around whilst we were out and did something with the hot tub as it was much better on our return. The property is also right on a busy main road so there is a considerable amount of road noise, especially in the living room and the front bedroom. There was no information left in the property about waste collection or recycling so we just left bags tied up in the side alley.

On arrival at the cottage we opened the door to a smell of pet odour we went to shop for air fresheners but this did little think the sette needs deep clean we had a issue with no hot water which was sorted with the owners several of the window blinds need attention and the bathroom window was not locked properly but no key to open or shut which allowed road noise to enter house the back inner door looked like a dog had chewed it the cottage is in a lovely village with pub over road that we used brilliant food and we parked car there we used the hot tub which was a bonus if few items mentioned were addressed it could be a lovely cottage
