The quietness of the park was extremely good. There was everything you needed in the lodge to make our stay a pleasant one. Thank you from all of us.
Mrs Goodwin
The lodge was absolutely amazing, it had everything we needed and the welcome pack was beyond any expectations. The site was lovely and clearly well looked after. It was great for walks but also a short drive away from many attractions. We look forward to another visit soon.
Mr O Neill
Thankyou so much for such wonderful accommodation we enjoyed our stay immensely and will be sure to book with Sykes cottages again .
Mrs Roach
The lodge is on a beautifully kept, peaceful park. The beach is in walking distance. There are lots of beaches to explore within a short car drive or longer walk. A few minutes down the road you are straight onto the Cleveland way and can walk the path either way - taking in the wonderful coastline views.The lodge itself is very well equipped and we found everything we needed. We shared the lodge with our son, his wife and 2 young children(plus dog) and found it plenty big enough for the six of us. Having 2 bathrooms is definitely a bonus. We would love to visit again .
Mrs Shaw
Excellent property for a chilled out holiday. Only slight issue is the living room tv is connected only by the internet on smart tv. This could be an issue with older generations. Not sure why this is as there is a satellite dish and it appears the sky box had been removed?
Mr Howlett
The lodge was absolutely gorgeous! The facilities within were also 5 star. Everything we needed/wanted was there. For example we had a day on the beach and checked the cupboard prior to leaving to find a wind break - very handy! The kitchen utensils were super - lots of clean and matching cutlery and mugs etc as well as what looked like brand new pots and pans. The location was also excellent and just as described on the website. Overall we had a super time and didn’t want to leave!
Miss Barlow
Having read a previous comment from someone in July, i thought the faciluties would not come up to scratch & the comment made me wish I hadn't booked. However everything was excellent, there were plenty of pans, bowls, cutlery, 2 oven racks and a lovely welcome pack. I was really impressed with the TV in the bathroom, very novel idea, it was lovely to have a soak & watch TV when we arrived, as we were very cold & wet, having ridden up on our motorbikes. The walk down to the local beach is a difficult one, I have arthritis in my hip & I managed it, using the 3 seats to take rest breaks on the way back up, it is worth going for the views. Thank you for our lovely, family weekend,we had not seen our girls for over 2 years.
Mrs Cairney
The kitchen had a full sized fridge and freezer. The beds were very comfortable and had good quality bedding. Towels were good quality too. The welcome pack was such a lovely idea.
Miss Gill
The property description on Sykes web site states "a luxury holiday lodge". I would add into that description the word compact. The description also states "a stones throw from the delightful beach". It is not! The complex is at least 500 yards from the road leading down to the beach. to access the sands a drop of approximtely 200ft must be negotiated and climbed back up on returning to the lodge. We are both reasonably fit and it took us 10 minutes to go down to the beach and at least 20 minutes return. The third person in our party who has difficulty in walking could not even get to the beach. The next item is a little picky but you do not get to see the sun fading through south facing doors. We could not enjoy cooking as the kitchen area is one of the poorest equiped rental places we have ever been in. There were only two saucepans, inadequate number and sized mixing bowls, the oven had only one shelf and there was no handle to the grill (only useable if you wrap your hands in tea towels). There were only three adults in our party however we filled the lodge, this is not a property for six adults. We were also suprised that the complex did not have any re-cycle facilities and all thirteen lodges had to place all rubbish into an inadequate sized bin that by the end of the week was overflowing. We have had many holiday lets with Sykes and we honestly belive this has been the worst accommodation to date. We could not reccommend this property.
Mr Bilton
I beautiful holiday home, very comfortable, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Close to amenities and the beautiful beach and stunning coastal walks. Away from the crowds to give a satisfying and relaxing break.
Mr Potter
A very nice lodge in a lovely quiet location excellent for some brilliant walks. One let down was the oven it barely gets hot enough to cook anything everything else was superb.
Mr Whitelaw
The property was furnished to the best quality for a holiday home, there was nothing that hadn’t been thought of. The location was perfect for access to the pub, the beach and nearby Whitby. I would definitely return to Rockpool retreat!
Mrs Thomson
We had a wonderful stay at Rockpool retreat. We have enjoyed every minute. The Lodge was immaculate when we arrived and the bag of goodies left for us was a lovely little touch. Cant fault this place and we are already looking forward to our next stay here. The property owner has also been so helpful. Thank you so much. X
