This is a great place to stay, we love it. It is now sunday afternoon, pouring with rain and the tv has stopped working and no one to assist. This is such a lovely comfortable flat we will definitely recommend it to all we know ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Mrs Foreman
The shower floor extremely slippy. The usual tv channels difficult to find. Otherwise a perfect holiday rental. I would certainly stay there again.
Mrs Wynne
Ideal location lovely stay welcoming packs made an extra touch and welcoming and will book again we would like to say thank you for sharing your holiday home with us
Mrs Boothby
The location of Church view is excellent ,very nicely decorated ,very good facilities, excellent shower ,the washing machine a welcome bonus, and comfortable bed.The bed linen and towels were immaculate.The welcome pack is also a very nice touch.I would have given 5 stars but on arrival the apartment had a very strong unpleasant odour, unfortunately the previous occupant very thoughtlessly and with no respect for the property had obviously allowed their pet to romp on the throw on the bed and all over the large sofa in the lounge ,the result being we couldn't sit down without our clothes collecting pet hairs.We contacted Sykes cottages office and the lady promptly arranged for the apartment to be cleaned ,the cleaning team were there within 30 minutes and very thoroughly vacuumed the sofa and carpets and sprayed deodoriser.So a big thank you to the Sykes cottages office team and the 2 young girls that re cleaned the apartment making for a very pleasant stay.
Mr Naylor
First of all I would like to say that from the start of booking until the day before we were due to travel Yorkshire cottage holidays were excellent. They covered everything from travel directions, to door code for keys, to time you can enter, parking tickets and so on. Keeping in touch to ensure nothing was left out, so thank you as it was professional and extremely helpful. We had a lovely relaxing and comfortable week in Whitby at our accommodation which has everything you need in a home from home. Very clean and easily accessible. Parking scratch cards were very easy to use just follow the instructions. Not far from Whitby beach and town centre where there are lots to do and see. Lots of people have dogs however they have to be kept on a lead when out walking but you can find parts of the beach to let them have a runaround. People were welcoming and friendly. We went to robin hood's bay, Filey, Falmouth , York and Scarborough. Walked along the cinder track with the dog and it was a lovely walk. We would definitely return . Thank you for making our holiday a good one.
Mrs Watson
Absolutely beautiful apartment everything you could wish for superbly equipped and spotlessly clean .. will definitely be using again. Highly c recommended
Mr Walker
After initial problem with parking card which was resolved very quickly our stay was very good.The welcome pack was very nice couldn't find fault with apartment great location .Owner even sent a goodie over the problem with parking card .Will certainly stay here again
Mr Fysh
Really cosy apartment a few minutes walk into town. Everything was clean and welcoming on arrival and the flat itself is lovely. First time to Whitby and we loved it and will definitely be coming back. I couldn’t recommend this apartment enough!
Mr Acock
The property was lovely, well stocked with everything we could want and the hamper was a great touch. Our only issue was that the apartment had no clean bedding or towels when we arrived which I had to contact the company about - I don’t think the flat had been cleaned or prepared for us. This was sorted when we were out but we still had no toilet roll so went out and bought some. The shower head had a leak too. This didn’t affect us too much but will need sorting. We would recommend and stay again as the flat was in such a great location and was so lovely.
Mrs Probets
Always enjoy staying at Sykes cottages , would deff book everyone gain . This one for location and easy parking .
Mr Armstrong
Lovely apartment in a great spot! Well equipped and very dog friendly. Had a lovely break here and would definitely recommend.
Ms Mullens
Great place to stop. Clean and tidy and very comfortable. Easy walking distance to everything. It can be quite difficult to find a parking spot, but once we did we left the car all weekend so it wasn't an issue for us. Would go again without hesitation.
Mr Wardle
A lovely apartment in a brilliant location - we will definitely return
Mr Wilson
Very comfy flat, nice and spacious. Very well placed for both the town and the beach, 5 -10 minute, leisurely walk to either. Very generous welcome pack! To be nit picky! A pen would have been a very useful addition to save a trek into town straight away to fill in the parking scratch card with our car registration! And to ensure the guest book can be written in.
Mrs Harrison
Fantastic apartment and location. Was perfect for our long weekend in Whitby
Ms Clarke
This is our 2nd stay at Church View. It's a beautiful place, spotlessly clean, close to all amenities. The décor is lovely too. The goodie bag was amazing. Highly recommend this place and Sykes
Mrs Parton
The flat was excellent and the welcome pack exceptional we had a fantastic stay and will definitely use again. The only downside was the inaccurate information from YCC about parking scratch cards which led me to receive a parking ticket and for this reason I have only awarded 8/10 to YCC. The flat was brilliant.
Mr Hunt
Really cosy and comfortable flat in which to spend the evenings after days out. The location in the west cliff area was superb, very close to the whalebone arch and beach. In the other direction it was easy to reach the main high street and shopping area. We enjoyed Whitby Abbey and it was worth the walk up the steps. The excellent WiFi , smart tv and extra channels were an added bonus. The owners have put a lot of thought into the furniture they have purchased and it shows that they have your comfort in mind. Will stay again if we return to Whitby.
Mrs Rigby
The accommodation was as good as we expected really nice place! Sofa and Bed really Comfy would definitely return. Good location to walk into town or to the Beach.
Mr Whittaker
The apartment was clean apart from the washing machine which was absolutely filthy and needs to be put on a boiling wash to get rid of all the mould inside the washing machine door and seal, couldn’t use it due to the mould. Parking was a nightmare is Whitby, not the fault of Sykes Cottages, I know. Grateful for the parking permits though. Bedding was lovely and clean, as were the towels. I know due to Covid restrictions the “usual” hamper was not available, but a one pint carton of milk, would have been helpful. If the guide could include where the nearest shops that sell bread and milk etc , apart from having to go into Whitby town itself, would be extremely helpful. The centre blinds in the front room didn’t work properly, too high to get up and fix. Everywhere else is set up ready for use and was clean. Good location for the town and beach.
Mrs Whitelock
Holiday was spot on as regards the description in your app but you need to make people aware of the parking situation and not just say there are scratchcards available . It was a nightmare for us. You either found somewhere and then never moved all week or spent hours looking,It spoilt things for us , made it very stressful! Otherwise fantastic apartment, exactly as shown, owners provde everything you need bar the food on the table haha
Mr Bayne
Church View is a beautiful, clean and comfortable appartment in a great location, we had a great stay and Whitby was lovely, we even had sunshine !
Mrs Mcglone
The apartment was warm and welcoming. The owners had left a nice booklet with clear instructions. The walk-in shower was excellent. Close proximity to both the town and the beach. We would definitely book again!
Greenwood Party
