Town: The former fishing village of Skinningrove sits on the Cleveland Way, and visitors will find an assortment of engaging cottages and houses plus a variety of shops within its boundaries. It has a sandy beach ideal for children and families, and the area is excellent for fossil hunting amongst the rocks on the foreshore. Skinningrove was also part of the Ironstone mining industry and there is a museum in the area that charts its industrial history. Saltburn is six miles away and has kept much of its Victorian heritage, including the oldest water balanced cliff tramway in Britain, well worth a visit. Skinningrove is an ideal place base to discover the wonderful moorland scenery and the many coastal towns and villages in the area, making it a great holiday base.

This was the first time myself and my dog stayed at Bishop`s Cottage, Skinningrove, and I was delighted. The cottage was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
I love Skinningrove, and I have visited there many times, as I have friends in Loftus. It isn`t the prettiest place, but is unspoilt and it has interesting history. I love the beaches; the people are friendly and I notice that they are trying hard to enhance one or two areas , especially involving local children in `pride of Skinningrove` I definitely will return.

This accommodation has everything you need .

A wonderful complex situated on the quiet side of the village. The cottage was clean and well designed. The surronding area is beautifull and the adjacent iron mine is a must visit place.
Down side is that there is not a decent pub within walking distance.
A very welcoming and superb cottage, with many extras

We would gladly recomment this cottage to anyone. It cottage was superbly clean and comfortable, with many added extras on arrival. Our dog was very welcome, and the short walk to the dog friendly beach was completed twice a day much to the delight of the dog, who loves beaches. We will certainly be visiting one of Sykes Cottages again in the near future.
Clean and Cosy
