This was our third holiday rent with Sykes and we were not disappointed.
The cottage was in a delightful little village,in a quiet cul de sac, within easy reach of Whitby and surrounding areas. The property itself was ideal for our needs. Clean, comfortable and well appointed, the only shortfall was no laundry provision.
For guests whose sleep patterns differed, the floor upstairs proved to be very noisy, with the creaking floorboards.This wouldn't however, prevent us from re booking at a future date.
Overall, as per my 5 star rating, we were very pleased we rented this property and have no hesitation in recommending this and Sykes in general to friends and colleagues.

An ideal location for exploring Whitby, Scarborough and the Moors. Situated in a quiet village 2 miles from Whitby, this has the advantage of not being 'out in the sticks' but remote enough to avoid the traffic and parking hassle of Whitby. The cottage itself is modern and well appointed. It's ideal for a family of 4 if your kids are young, as they have to share a bed. It was a lovely surprise to find milk and wine in the fridge on arrival, when you arrive you want to settle down and not worry about where the nearest shop is.

My wife and I had a great holiday in one of our favourite parts of the country, we were more than plesed with the cottage which we found to be very clean,comfortable, and is idealy situated for all the local coastal and moorland places of interest,park your car at the cottage and use the bus and train service both of which are on the doorstep.
The village of Ruswarp has a decent local pub, who serve up no nonsense good food at reasonable prices, and we can thoroughly recommend Jacksons the local butcher ( try his bacon baps for breakfast Superb )
Next time we visit the area Lavender Cottage will be our 1st choice.

good service key easy to access, cosy home.
Local amenities good ie station and bus stop round the corner,local store and brilliant butchers.
disliked - no phone signal though there is a phone box over the road, too much crockery and glasses so little place to put your own food. chair covers white so showed the dirt.
We enjoyed our stay, the cottage was clean and prepared for our visit. Everything we needed was in the cottage. The parking was easy and secluded. The location was very good, local attractions were easily accessible and we particularly liked the nearby public transport into Whitby eliminating the need to find somewhere to park in a busy town. However we would have liked instruction books left in the cottage for operating equipment, particularly the oven and the combi-boiler as the hot water from the taps was overly hot.
Overall we found everything more than satisfactory.

It was just like walking into your own home all the home comforts and spotlessly clean, cosy and bright well funished. Just about a mile to walk on a pleasent country path into Whitby, train station just across the road and a village pub .Great place to unwind after a coastal walk from whitby to robin hoods bay stunning scenery, Hard to fault.Moblie phone strugled for a signal , But there was a telephone box outside.
The cottage was well maintained & presented. It was compact and adequate. The location was perfect for both coast & Moors.
The service was great (my husband locked us out within minutes of arriving but a replacement key was sorted in 30 minutes)!
The wooden floors were slippy and my toddler fell over straight away, we had to stay bare foot to avoid further injury.
The cottage was lacking any outdoor space ie. enclosed garden.
More suited to couples or families with older children.
An overall enjoyable holiday.
