Region: The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.
Town: The North York Moors are the largest area of open heather moorland in England and Wales, and the uplands either side of the River Esk are some of the most beautiful. By the end of summer the heather creates a pink and purple carpet stretching for miles. Aislaby sits comfortably within this idyllic setting, its sandstone cottages and old church blending into the Esk Valley with ease. Local attractions include the church of St. Hedda and the Arncliffe Woods. The North Yorkshire Moors National Park is just a short drive away, offering miles of unspoilt scenery, many walks and a variety of opportunities for observing wildlife. Slightly further afield is the historic town of Whitby, famous for its Abbey and supposedly the location where Dracula first visited Britain.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

The property is well furnished with everything you need and is in a superb position with lovely views over the valley.
Whitby is worth a visit and the North Yorkshire countryside and coastline is on the whole stunning.

The accommodation was absolutely first class and very well appointed throughout. It is located in a wonderful position, a short distance from the North Yorkshire Moors and Whitby and a fantastic base from which to explore. The owners were delightful and helpful in every way and the standard of cleanliness was exemplary. The dogs were safe in an enclosed garden area and this added to our relaxation and enjoyment. We would very much like to stay again in the future.
West wing is great

We loved everything about the property and had a lovely holiday. The owners were friendly and helpful. The location was good for Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay etc and walking with the dogs. It was great for self catering, but if you wanted to eat out, a local pub doing lovely, well priced meals was a 5 min. walk away and other eateries were close at hand.
Confidential For Sykes Cottages only......Not for publication.....Our only minor complaint was that the 2nd bedroom (near to the large house that they also rent out) had a connecting door and during the weekend that it was rented out there was a lot of noise early in the morning (7/8 am as they had children) and later into the evening. Possibly the door connects to the kitchen/lounge of the large house so the two properties can be rented jointly. BUT it was as if the people renting the large house were in the bedroom te sounds were so clear and a little disconcerting as if they could just open the door and walk in, although the door was locked. As the door is one end of a small walk through corridor, of about 1 meter, a solution would be to put a 2nd door at the other end of the corridor, directly into the bedroom, to muffle the sound and make it feel more private.
This is not a complaint only a minor criticism that we would appreciate your passing on to Sykes.

The West Wing had everything we needed for a perfect, relaxing holiday.
From the warm welcome we received and the first glimpse of the stunning view things just got better.
All the equipment we needed was provided and the thoughtful welcome pack, with the most delicious biscuits, was a lovely gesture. The 2 double en-suite bedrooms provided the perfect accommodation.
The view exceeded our expectations and the wildlife in the garden provided additional entertainment.
It was an easy drive into Whitby and a good base for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. You could hear the trains, but couldn't see them (that would have been a real bonus).
Probably the best holiday we have had for many years and we would like to thank Richard & Mary for their hospitality.
