A very well appointed,cosy cottage in a lovely part of the countryside.We had everything we needed,apart from sunshine! A thoughtful touch was the welcome tray with local cookies,much appreciated. Very handy location for trips out into the stunning countryside and not too far to the shops. The owners were very friendly and helpful and their lovely dog,Ginny provided daily entertainment for our Staffy,Harry. His first holiday romance!! We will definitely return. Loved the Guinea fowl,sheep and Highland cattle too.

Stayed in Honey Bee in early 2013. The property is lovely, spotlessly clean and well presented.
Nothing was too much trouble for the owners - even digging our car out of the snow!
Would go again without question.

The location was perfect,tremendous views,peace and quiet and not far from many places of outstanding beauty and national interest. The accommadation was very compact, the main bedroom was fine but the two singles were quite claustrophobic which was such a pity. It was difficult to even get dressed in them! and no storage.
The owners were lovely, and very helpful, always around in case we needed anything.
Ideal for a couple with two small children! Also great that they accepted pets.

This the third time that we have booked our holiday with Sykes and we can't speak highly enough of the company as a whole, from the customer services staff when you book your holiday,all the way throught to the owners of the cottages themselves. They are always friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make sure that you have a fantastic holiday.
Honey Bee cottage is a little treasure, set next to the owners home and in acres of farm land, it was beautifully decorated and scrupiously clean,the decor was well thought out and in keeping with the age of the cottage. The owners were very friendly and offered up suggestions of where the best pubs and eating places were. The location of the cottage meant that we were between Scarbough and Whitby, so we were ideally placed to visit their beachs or drive over to the moors too Goathland and the Hole of Horcum. The best part of the holidays was waking up to the sound of cows mooing in the field behind the cottage, the breathtaking sunsets and sunrises and finding the owners dog Ginny outside the front door waiting for her home cooked breakfast sausage every morning and not forgetting the Highland cattle and the owners ponies that would gallop up the field to greet us whenever we left or came back to the cottage.

We loved the cottage. It was very clean and decorated to a very high standard. The cottage had everything you would need for a short stay, there was even a welcome basket with tea and biscuits and a fresh pint of milk in the fridge. My husband and I took advantage of the amazing scenery and walks in the area while the others went to visit nearby whitby and scarborough. Recommended for a relaxing break.

Our second visit to this remote and wonderful retreat. Snow ensured we had to walk the final quarter of a mile to the property. The owners who live adjacent were wonderful, helping with our every need. The cottage was warm and cosy, we had the log burner going very well. We enjoyed the snow, skiing and sledging. We will be back.

The cottage was in a lovely setting, with beautiful views. The village it was located in was charming. We were met by the owners when we arrived, and they were very friendly. The cottage was charming but rather small. It did have three bedrooms but the two single rooms were tiny. The living space also was rather small for four people. The garden area attached to the cottage was very nice. The amenities in the cottage were good, but there was no drying space for clothing.
