Prince Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
A delightful single storey terraced cottage in a quiet courtyard setting, this property has been built on the site of a stable that used to house pit ponies. The cottage has been well designed and offers comfortable and contemporary accommodation all on ground level. The sitting room is a warm, inviting room decorated and furnished with simple, understated elegance and the dining area is also in this room, whilst the modern fitted kitchen is compact and well equipped. There is a double bedroom offering a calm retreat for a good night's sleep. Outside the cottage is a shared lawn and gravel area with a barbecue and furniture, making it a super spot for anevening drink. The property offers guests a great base from which to see this fabulous region.

The village of Skinningrove is situated on the Cleveland Way, and has an array of delightful cottages and an assortment of shops to provide visitors with all the amenities they may need. It has a safe, sandy beach and the geology of the area makes it a good place to hunt for fossils both in Skinningrove and in nearby Saltburn. The village is well placed for visiting other attractions such as the magnificent abbey at Whitby and the town's bustling harbour. The dramatic scenery of the North Yorks Moors National Park is within easy reach and can be explored on foot along one of the many paths, or drive along the country lanes and discover the charming villages dotted across the landscape. Skinningrove makes a great base to see the attractions and take advantage of the activities in this stunning area.

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.

Mr Smith
January 2014
We loved the cottage, the area, everyone friendly, central to everything we wanted.
Mrs Smith
April 2014
The cottage was absolutely spotless, very comfortable and with new/modern furniture. We loved the location and the friendly but unobtrusive welcome. Also the heating system was great and easy to control using the thermostat. There's nothing I could add to improve the cottage. Easter egg, wine and milk, tea and coffee were a thoughtful touch and of course being able to have our dog in the cottage was a key criteria.
Ms Devaney
July 2013
Great base for exploring local area, good amenities near by, plenty to see and do. The cottage was lovely, in a quiet location. I would go back there again.

The holiday cottage was excellent, the situation was ideal for our walking holiday. We were met at the cottage, the owners were friendly, and a guide of the property was given. The locals of Skinningrove are very friendly.
Mr McIver
June 2013
The cottage was ideally situated in the village; there were lawns to the front and seating and tables for each cottage and the beach was 10 min walk away which suited our dog he loved it there. The locals in the village are very friendly and there is a good fish and chip shop.
Mrs Parish
April 2013
It is a peaceful location. Our hosts were very nice and welcoming. The village itself is full of tradition. A good base to explore the area. We have stayed in a few cottages in this area and this is by far the best. The Leisure Centre at Loftus is good for any exercise needed. The beach at Skinningrove is quiet and peaceful.
Mrs Smith
April 2013
Great location near to many areas on the North East coast that we wanted to explore. A tastefully decorated property and well heated which allowed us to relax after long days out walking. Good proximity to many picturesque beaches and coastlines.
Mrs Bullock
January 2013
We had a lovely stay at the cottage and there are some lovely walks in the surrounding area. Close to the sea as well, so our dog loved it! It has all the small touches to make the place more like home from home and we would definitely go again. Our hosts were very friendly and always available if we needed them. We would certainly recommend this to anyone.

Fantastic location! Fantastic little cottage, excellently furnished and well stocked crockery wise. Couldn't have asked for more! Lovely friendly welcome too.
Mr Mccann
July 2012
Walking into this spotless new-build cottage was like entering a show-home. The decor was beautiful; the furnishings were first class and comfortable; and joy of joys - a 32 inch Freeview TV that you can actually see from 15' away, along with a top of the range HiFi system and DVD player. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need, along with a much appreciated washer/dryer, and the welcome pack was an absolute delight and so thoughtful. Day trips that we took included Saltburn by the Sea; Whitby; Robin Hood's Bay; Thornton-le- Dale; Hutton-le-Hole; Helmsley; Rievaulx Abbey; and Guisborough. This whole area of North Yorkshire is an absolute treasure trove for visitors. The hospitality and friendliness of the owners and hosts made us feel right at home, and gave us a week to remember. Sincerest thanks to all of our hosts.
Mr Goldberger

The locals are very friendly and gave a lot of local information on the history of Skinningrove. The beach was empty except at the weekend when lots of hikers were walking the Cleveland Way. A lot of space to walk and a good base for visiting North Yorkshire and Cleveland.

Mrs Steele

The friendliness and helpfulness of the owner and his family. This was our second visit and we hope to return next year and perhaps meet up with the other holidaymakers.
Mrs Partridge
February 2011
We liked that the cottage was absolutely spotless on arrival, despite the fact that dogs are allowed. It makes an excellent start to the holiday. The fact that we could walk to the beach for daily walkies was a bonus.
Miss Manners

The holiday was brilliant. It was very relaxing, nice and secluded, and everything we needed. Thank you.
Mrs McCartney

Beautifully decorated cottage. Very comfortable chairs and bed etc! Really lovely. Well equipped too. Good value for money. Very friendly and helpful owner. Very interesting historic village (real Yorkshire!) and area. People very friendly. Loved proximity to both moors and beach and coastal path. 'Helmsley Walled Garden' welcomes dogs in garden.
Mr Furness
November 2010
Very welcoming and helpful owners and family. A superb warm cottage for our November holiday. Splendid coastline five minutes walk away. More easily accessible on foot, by car and a surprisingly good bus service (ideal for our long walks). We could not have wished for more.
Mrs Connor
November 2010
2nd time we've been! Great welcome from owners. Easy base for the surrounding areas. Very quiet, great for relaxing.

Very roomy property for two, you could have spent two weeks in the poor weather there and not felt cramped. Particularly nice to have a kitchen you can actually cook in.
Mrs Conway
July 2009
The property was in a small village near a quiet beach. We were very close to larger towns with take aways and shops. There were menu's provided for these in the cottage. When we arrived there was milk in the fridge and tea and coffee were provided which was great. There was also a gift of wine and chocolates, lovely. The family were lovely and helpful but not intrusive at all. The accommodation was very modern and comfortable throughout.
Mr Worsley
August 2009
The cottage is lovely and very well appointed with very pleasant people to look after you.Its location was spot on for the area ie not far from anything.The weather held and made it even more enjoyable with lots of walks direct from the cottage with wide variety.

we arranged to stay in this cottage through Sykes cottages and was asked to telephone the owner 48hrs prior to our arrival for the key arrangements and this we did he told my wife to call again 20 mins before we arrived which we did only the call went to voice mail. We arrived and the owner had still not returned our call but as we pulled up in front of the cottage a young woman appeared and gave us the keys. Next door the cottage was occupied by the owners daughter who informed us that they had a flood a few weeks earlier and the main road in and out was blocked off and the only road in and out was up and down a 1 in 4 hill which was in places not wide enough for two cars to pass. This we had found out when we arrived to see the road diversion signs. No one from Sykes cottages had bothered to inform us of the floods. We arrived on a Friday and the weekend passed uneventful but we did notice how damp the cottage felt. The kitchen was very dark and you had to have the light on almost all the time you were in there. The cottage itself was quite nice and we were visiting the surrounding area. Then came Sunday night we were woken by the noise next door as our bedroom backed onto their bathroom and they had a bedroom above their lounge. 6am we were woken again and could not go back to sleep with the noise and at 7.30am eventually got up. The next night and morning was a repeat again we were up at just after 7 am . We were both fed up with the noise so decided to cut short our holiday and go home.
December 2013
The owners were on site and couldn't have been more obliging. The cottage was very clean,attractive and warm, ideally situated for all kinds of places to visit. Would definitely recommend it.
September 2012
Original holiday "pulled" from under our feet six weeks before holiday date. Hastily found this little gem. If you`re looking for a quiet,tanqill relaxing break then look no further. What a lovely place to stay. A home away from home with everything you would possibly need inside this delightful converted pit pony stables. 5 minute walk into the village of Skinningrove, a bit further to the beach. Great central place to visit Redcar,Saltburn, Whitby and many other places. A local bus stopped outside the gravelled driveway (although not used by us a very frequent service ) Owners family lived in the cottage next door so always on hand if we needed anything. Large folder on hall stand had brochures,pamphlets for all local attractions plus instructions on how to use all appliances inside the cottage. Liked it so much within 4 days of coming home booked again for next year, a thing we have never done before
December 2009
Don't be put off Skinningrove by the 'Britains Hardest Villages' hype. Despite the menacing graffiti on the jetty we had a good time and the people who own the cottage were very helpful. The cottage was generously laid out for a couple and well equipped, especially in the kitchen. where a lot fall down. Great base for the North York Moors, the coast and the RSPB reserve at Saltholme in Middlesborough. Would definitely visit again.
May 2011
very good value, comfortable,with friendly check in , close to the beach easy walk, with plenty to do with the dog.
August 2011
we had a very enjoyable stay ideal for getting to other locations along the coast very helpful owners clean and comfortable
July 2012
This spotless new-build cottage is in the village of Skinningrove, with the Mining Museum a 3 minute walk away, and the beach a leisurely 10 minute stroll down the road. A lot of thought has gone into the decor and the furnishings, and the comfort of the guests, and it shows. The 32" Freeview TV, the high-backed dining chairs, and the washer/dryer in the kitchen tell you that your hosts Geoff & Val have thought of those little things that make your stay so enjoyable. And the "Welcome Pack"? Deliciously thoughtful! This corner of North Yorkshire is a visitor's delight, from the incredible beach at Saltburn-by-the-Sea, to Rievaulx Abbey and Helmsley, to the wonderful Ryedale Folk Museum in Hutton-le-Hole, and the lovely welcoming town of Guisborough. The weather was incredibly kind to us (a high of 27"), and an after-dinner drink sitting outside the cottage watching the sun go down, was the perfect topping to some great days. Geoff & Val, along with Kelly & Steve, and Joanna, made us feel so welcome and at home, we felt almost like part of the family. Many, many thanks to all of them. Any downside? Only one. The cottage was booked the week before and the week after our visit, and sadly we had to return home after only 7 nights!
December 2009
We really booked this as late as could be,and the help and service we got was very good when booking .Directions etc were ok ,found it and were really surprised at how well we were greeted and looked after ,it was excellent ,the place was very very good and was just the quiet place we were looking for , many thanks to the owners for making us very welcome. If you go down to the bottom of the village walk left along the path to the beach you will get an excellent large lovely empty beach,to us that is all we wanted,not far from the beach at Saltburn by the sea,with its pier and clifftop setting. Lovely large shopping in middlesbourough etc
March 2013
We stayed here over New Year and really enjoyed our stay. There were plenty of walks to go on and it wasn't far from the beach at all! the Staff were very informative and friendly and if you dont want to take your car,the bus stop is right outside.Our only gripe was the shower :-( it wasnt very powerful and if you were using the washing machine or sink water,then the flow and temperature of the shower was affected. Other than that we would happily stay there again :-) Thank you for a warm and welcoming stay!
October 2011
The cottage was clean and the owners great nothing was too much trouble. A bus stop out side the cottage came evry 15mins. Good beach, local shop was great and helpfull. The local fish and chip shop was the best ever. I would recomend this venue to any one. I think a club house was talked about this would be great.
December 2011
Beautiful,comfortable accomodation that is better than any hotel.Great for visiting the area with the Cleveland Way just 5 mins away. Beaches,towns and moors all accessible. If you dont have a car this is ideal as public transport is readily available ( the bus stops outside).Walking, lazing and touring all in a cottage that is more home than home.The owners provide eveything you need not just the basics. Nice to have a proper freezer and all cleaning materials, not just those previous occupants have left.Would go back in an instant.
Ms Ewing
October 2015
Our cottage was lovely and just perfect for the two of us. On the whole is was a lovely cottage done to a high standard and very comfortable.
September 2011
Set in a small village with very friendly locals this cottage had everything you need for a comfortable stay. Although there was a pub within walking distance, it only did food on Sundays. There was nowhere within walking distance to eat out so take provisions for your first night!The welcome bottle of wine and chocolates was an unexpected surprise and very kind. Excellent spot for hikers.
