Mrs Cooke
Cottage was very clean and modern. Beautiful views of the sea from the lounge and balcony. We have booked for next year.
Mrs Brown
High class cottage with quality furniture and fittings no expense spared Fantastic location and amazing views Glad we booked for 2021
Mrs Archer
A fantastic base to explore the area with every comfort and a the best view of the fabulous beach. Enjoyed the walk into Whitby and felt it was great to be away from the hustle and bustle of the town.
Mrs Parker
An excellent cottage, perfect in every way.
Mr Cooke
Only 2 dishwasher tables were left for a 4 night break!
Mrs Deakin
Beautiful cottage with everything you needed for a perfect holiday, and with stunning views. Tumble drier does need checking as the fuse blew the electrics when we were using it.
The owners have put a lot of thought and careful planning into making Turnstone Cottage a comfortable & homely holiday retreat for their customers. Personal touches in every room made the Cottage very cosy and provided every appliance and all the utensils one might need. No wasted space, very easy to keep tidy, and the view is very relaxing and spectacular. A very warm welcome from the owners, who are eager to listen to their customers suggestions to improve their stay at Turnstone Cottage. Sandsend is a peaceful, sheltered, place to be, Turnstone Cottage is the icing on the cake.
The key collection and return is extremely prohibitive - to have to go into Whitby is very inconvenient and quite unnecessary when there is a secure key box to leave the key. Whitby is 3 miles from the property and if you do not have your own transport then it creates stress trying to access limited public transport to obtain the keys. This is something that would stop me from booking the property again. On the subject of booking again I think repeat bookings should not be charged the booking fee - this is a sure fire way of customers not booking with you again.
Mrs Otton
Knew exactly what to expect as have stopped hear a number of times. Amazing property, must have some of the best views in Sandsend. Will definitely be returning again!
Mr Briggs
The service we have received from booking onwards has been very good.Turnstone Cottage, is by far, the best cottage we have ever stayed in. It was well equipped, great location, gorgeous views and very comfortable and clean. We had an amazing holiday and will be back to Yorkshire for a future holiday. Thank you to yourselves and the owners for such a great cottage.
Mrs Layton
We have been to this cottage many times before. That is why we rebook. PLEASE STOP sending adverts for cottages to this email address
Mrs Kane
Sykes service is not as good as the service was when Yorkshire Coastal cottages was independent. It's not as efficient, too far spread and certainly not as personal.
Mr Kane
All highly satisfactory. Will book again.
