Prospect Coach House Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Prospect Coach House is a semi-detached, converted coach house in Great Fryup Dale, a scattering of farms and houses, fourteen miles from Whitby in the North York Moors National Park. This cottage sleeps up to five people and has two bedrooms, consisting of one king size double and one twin with pull-out single, as well as a family bathroom. The cottage also has a fitted kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with open fire. To the outside of this cottage, there is off road parking for three cars and a patio area by the cottage, with a rockery and lawned garden areas with stream and sitting area behind the cottage. Prospect Coach House is a wonderful holiday home in a stunning area.

Located in the North York Moors National Park, Fryup Dale is a largely undiscovered area, ideal as a base from which to begin exploring the surrounding countryside. Whether you plan to make your way around the region on foot, by bike or car, there is something for everyone to see and do in this wonderful landscape. Surrounded by heather-clad moors, this region is popular for walkers who will be spoiled for choice by the many footpaths and trails across the countryside. For train lovers there are a variety of old engines running from nearby Lealholm, through the lovely Esk Valley to Whitby, calling at many pretty villages along the way. Linking with the ever-popular North York Moors Steam Railway at Grosmont, the Esk valley line is well worth taking a trip on.

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 Postlethwaite
November 2013
It is a very warm and comfortable cottage. Very close to excellent walks, and yet in a quiet valley.
Mr Reed
October 2013
Secluded location with good views of the open countryside. Close to Lealhome with good tea room and restaurant, both rated highly by trip advisor (and me!). Living room very homely, with big comfortable sofas, and good lighting. Secluded garden with seating overlooking a superb view. I really felt as though I had been welcomed into somebody's little retreat, and allowed to use their facilities rather than things provided just for rental purposes (which is in fact the case).
Mr Waters
August 2013
We went to the same last year, and liked it so much that we booked it again for this year. This cottage is one of the nicest we have ever been to, it's certainly the cleanest and best equipped. We were luckier with the weather this year, so got to make use of the beautiful garden.
Mrs Brameld
June 2013
The location and cleanliness of this delightful property was excellent.
Mrs Dawes
May 2013
An idyllic, undiscovered 'secret valley' where we can forget the cares of the world.
Mrs Norman
October 2012
The cottage was very spacious and very well equipped.
Mrs Armstrong
October 2012
The spotlessly clean, excellently equipped property; the wonderful scenery from the property and the wildlife in the garden.
Mrs Keen
September 2012
The Coach House is in a lovely location, peaceful but not too remote, plenty of places to visit. The house itself is home from home.
Mrs Cottington
September 2012
This is our fourth holiday at Prospect Coach House and once again it was excellent. The property is spectacularly clean, has everything you need, including free wi-fi and the area is just beautiful. We are already under pressure from our 3 children to book up again for next year!
Mr Waters
July 2012
This holiday house was the nicest we have stayed in, and in such a lovely location too. It was beautifully appointed, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Highly recommended, and we're hoping to book again for next summer.
Mr Falk
July 2012
The property felt very homely.
Mrs Beebee
July 2012
We enjoyed the situation of the property. The beds were wonderfully comfortable and there was a real feeling of 'home', something one gets when the owners also use the place, as information is more personal. Some family came for a day visit and were very keen to book a holiday here themselves!
Mr Ashcroft
July 2012
Clean, comfy and in a beautiful spot with lovely garden. Relaxed straight away when we arrived.
Mrs Tovell
July 2012
This cottage is in a great location for visiting the surrounding areas and was brilliant, clean and very well equipped.The well laid out garden is a bonus. Definitely worth another visit.
Mrs Detnon
July 2012
Loved Prospect Cottage. Very comfortable and well equipped. Stunning location. Would come again.
Mr Newhouse
February 2012
We loved both the location and the standard of the property. Being there in the snow, and seeing a deer from the window, made it extra special.
Ms Thompson
August 2011
This cottage is ideally situated for anyone wanting to get away from it all and enjoy some peace and quiet. It is very well equipped and has a porch area to store boots which was great especially as we had a damp week. A third time a Sykes holiday has been a success!
Mrs Dawes
July 2011
Great location - beautiful valley. Well equipped cottage.
Mrs Cottington
August 2011
This is our third visit to Prospect Coach House and the holidays just get better and better. The house is exceptionally clean, very well equipped, and is in a beautiful location with so much to do. Most importantly there is enough safe storage for five bikes! The garden and stream were a massive hit with our three children. We're looking forward to rebooking for next year.
Mr Mrs Pym
November 2010
Property very well presented with everything that you require.
Mrs Wilder
October 2010
This is a lovely, spacious cottage with a fantastic garden. We really enjoyed our stay.
Mrs Cottington
August 2010
The property is first class. It is like home from home and has everything you could possibly need and so incredibly clean. The location speaks for itself and you need more than a week as there is so much to do in the locality. This is our second visit and we hope to be back again soon.
Mrs Peach
March 2010
Well equipped, in a very remote rural setting. The house was very clean and ready to use.
Mr Fowler
June 2010
This was the 4th year we have stayed here and it did not disappoint. We can relax the minute we arrive. It is such a peaceful place and we can't wait to come again.
Mrs Gingell
July 2010
Well equipped, very clean and in a beautiful setting. Very peaceful and relaxing.
Mr Johnson
February 2010
The walking! The cottage was very well equipped. Would recommend visitors take a spade to shift snow as although one is at the property, you might need it on going home day!
Miss Harvey
January 2010
The cottage was a lovely place to go and get away to. It was so quiet and peaceful we would like to go again especially when there is snow.
Mr Emberley
October 2009
The quiet and peaceful location.
Mr Lane
August 2009
Excellent place to stay better than we expected, so much effort has been put in to ensure there is everything you need. Would have liked to stay much longer than we did, we will be back again for sure.
Mrs Christer
July 2009
This was the second time we have stayed here and it just gets better. The cottage is a lovely and relaxing place to return to after a hectic day. The views from the garden are amazing and it is situated in a truly beautiful part of Yorkshire.
Mr Fowler
June 2009
This was our 3rd visit and once again we could not fault our holiday. Prospect Coach House is now more like our second home and we hope to come again for a fourth year.
Mrs Creavy
June 2009
The very good position in the midst of beautiful scenery and the fact that the owner took the trouble to telephone us very early in our holiday to make sure everything was in order. Very good cottage.
Mrs Wright
May 2009
Property superb and surrounding area stunning. Would recommend to anyone. Tea/Coffee, milk and biscuits for us on arrival. Very welcoming.
Mr Dalgarno-platt
April 2009
The property worked very well for our 3 young children, so is very suitable for families.
Mr Kelly
May 2009
A nice cottage, great views and plenty of walks near by.
Mr Dalgarno-platt
April 2009
The location and finish were stunning. I particularly found the kitchen to be be well equipped for any type of food preparation which increased the flexibility of the property.
Mr Parker
February 2009
Best winter holiday yet, I Will be going back. Fantastic peaceful location and wildlife is great. Plenty of walks.
Ms Gilkison
February 2009
A great cottage retreat but with lots of indoor space. Really warm with a wonderful log burner and homely atmosphere. Great access to the coast and some local walks.
Mrs Boutell
December 2008
We have visited the same cottage for a number of years and have never failed to be impressed by the consistent high quality of the cottage fixtures and fittings and of course the lovely setting.
Mr Hobbs
October 2008
A beautiful cottage in a great area. I would recommend it to anyone.
Mr Mrs Hughes
November 2008
The remoteness. The TV facilities. The Wi-Fi was good. A truly wonderful place and we'll be back!
Mr Burton
October 2008
The location was brilliant and the standard of maintenance in the cottage could not have been better.
Mr Glegg
September 2008
Beautiful quiet location. Met the owners who were very pleasant and helpful. Cottage was excellent and satisfied all our needs.
Mrs Novak
September 2008
I particulary enjoyed exploring a new part of the country that I had not been to before. The locals were very friendly and advised about places of interest and local attractions. The accommodation was exemplary and extremely comfortable.
Mrs Redpath
August 2008
Nice peaceful cottage to get away from it all.
Mr Fowler
June 2008
This was our second visit. We didn't think we could top last years visit but we did. The Coach House is first rate, very relaxing with marvellous surroundings. Our 2 year old daughter loved every minute and we didn't want to leave. See you again next year.
Mrs Littlewood
October 2007
We enjoyed the week immensely, a brilliant place.
Mr Hockley
May 2008
Exceedingly well-equipped property in a lovely location. Had a really enjoyable week at a very comfortable house.
Mr Moane
September 2007
Prospect Coach House was delightful. It was very well equipped and comfortable. The cleanliness was to a very high standard. We will certainly recommend this cottage to friends.
Mrs Harrison
August 2007
Overall a lovely cottage, very atmospheric and appealing whilst still being practical accommodation for a family. Exceptionally well equipped cottage - even Sky+, most appreciated ! Beautiful location, lots to do in the area.
Mr Fowler
June 2007
We particularly liked the relaxation and quietness of this outstanding cottage. The best holiday we have had as a family.
Mr Brown
June 2007
Location and setting were excellent. A lovely spot with great walking from the front door.
Miss Brice
November 2006
Just fantastic. A great cottage with everything in place. Thanks.
Mr Cox
March 2007
Very cosy on cold, wet and windy evenings. A great bolt hole with loads to offer - Newcastle and York are both easily accessible. The Fox Hounds in Ainthorpe does fantastic food. The views from the footpath behind the house is beautiful. Great location for lots of places to visit.
Mrs Schofield
November 2006
A very warm house with coal burning fire. I could recommend it for cold winter nights. An excellent location for walks in the countryside and the coast line. It is close to the railway (2 miles) to go to Whitby.
Dr Weekes
September 2006
Very clean and well equipped and very peaceful.
Mr McNeish
October 2006
The photographs and description given on the site were an accurate guide to the property and we were not in the least dissapointed. If a property has been let for some time, it is often difficult to assess whether it has been kept up to the original standards of decor and cleanliness. In this case, we were very pleasantly surprised.
Mr Mrs Russell
September 2006
Sykes Cottages are always good, but Prospect Coach House must be one of the best.
Mr Waring
December 2005
An excellent property in an quiet location. Well located for walking, outings to the coast ( Whitby was a favourite) and the railways. Something for all the family.
Mr Mackay
December 2005
This is our second visit to this cottage, this is a superb place for a winter break!
Mr Furniss
October 2005
The property has everything you could wish for in a self catering holiday. For good beer, delicious food and a warm welcome I would recommend The Boad Inn in Lealholm.
Mr Knox
July 2005
A great place to stay.
Mr Leslie
August 2005
The cottage was excellent and in a lovely situation in the North Yorkshire Moors. Good driving distance to Whitby and Scarbourgh and excellent for lovely drives into the moors. The property was excellent, can't fault it at all.
Mr Lamdin
April 2005
A very enjoyable break, would thoroghly recommend.
Mr Howe
May 2005
The accomodation was excellent. It was nice to get a call from the owner before the holiday to explain how to use the coal fire etc!
Mr Mackay
December 2004
Really excellent cottage- we have never stayed in such a comfortable house. Thank you very much.
Mrs Robinson
March 2005
The area is excellent for walking and within easy distance of other interesting places to visit, i.e, Whitby.
Ms Mackirdy
December 2004
Excellent property with everything you could need in a beautiful location.
Mr Kenyon
December 2004
A lovely back garden to go and escape to at the end of a good days walk!
Mrs Pearson
December 2004
The Coach House was in a lovely setting and this one was the nicest we have been to with you. It was beautifully furnished and very well cared for. We enjoyed the local restaurants
Mr Motion
December 2004
Everything about the property was superb to visit. Absolutely first class service ! we will try our hardest to return to this house in the future.
Mrs White
December 2004
Everything about the cottage was great. The views were wonderful and a number of walks could be done from the door.Once we got the fire up and running the house was extremely warm and which makes it an excellant winter cottage.
Mrs Doling
December 2004
The location is superb for both the coast and moors walks. The cottage was more than comfortable having been out for a days walk and well equipped that if the weather was not suitable then staying in all day was not an issue even with children.
January 2014
Despite the fact that it rained all week, I enjoyed my stay here. It's quite remote, being several miles along a single track road, but us in a great position, with good views of the vale from both the house, and the pleasant (steeply sloping) back garden. Very well equipped with a large tv, PVR, surround sound system, washer/dryer, and a second dryer. The accommodation is spacious, clean, and characterful. In the nearby village if Lealholme there is a post office, a very good pub (The Board Inn), and several tea rooms. Whitby and Grosmont are about 10 miles away. The info pack was very useful. Downsides? The heavy rain leaked into the porch & tripped the electrics twice.
September 2012
A beautiful, comfortable and well equipped cottage set in a stunning location. Lovely garden which was a bonus. Near to lealholm and their fantastic bakery ! Will come again.
August 2013
Booking the property was straight forward & the directions to the property were very good. The property was very nice & spacious & the garden was excellent. Although the property was a fair distance from the nearest village it was very quiet & relaxing and the few neighbors we came across were friendly & helpful. The best thing about the property was being able to sit out in the garden & enjoy the lovely scenery & even seeing a deer crossing the road just yards away. The only thing I could fault was that we could not change the channel on the TV despite following the instructions but as the weather was good the week we were there it wasn't too big a hardship. Just a simple straight forward TV would be much better!!
September 2011
We liked the apparent 'remoteness' of this beautiful valley. There are no villages, just a scattering of farms and hamlets. It seemed a secret yet Whitby is only half an hour away. And within a few miles drive was the well-stocked village of Lealholm. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable and very quiet. Neighbours were friendly. And we could keep in touch with the outside world via the internet - a must these days.
September 2012
We found this house welcoming and friendly - I think this is partly because it is obviously loved and used by its owners. It is therefore well-organised for actually living in. Brilliant location, lovely garden, and rapid rescue for a minor kitchen problem. The in-laws came to visit and were so impressed that they plan to book it for themselves next year.
February 2010
Excellent cottage, all mod cons, especially the kitchen area. Nice garden but not terribly suitable for young children - 6 yr old twins could not play footbal due to the steep incline!! Lovely area - no shortage of things to do & places to go to. Great access to coast & countryside.
February 2010
A well equipped cottage, in a tranquil setting. Lovely weather and good accomodation made for a relaxing and delightful week away. A good spot for both the moors and the coast.
September 2010
We had a lovely week in this cottage which is comfortable and well equipped. We did feel that there might be a need to update furniture soon but that's a small niggle. It is very homely with everything you could want. The owners responded very quickly to a query we had and it was overall a very enjoyable experience. It is a bit remote but that is a plus as well.
February 2010
This Holiday cottage provided us with a Great Family getaway, and a fantastic base for exploring the Nork York Moors and the surrounding coast. We spent the whole week exploring Whitby, Pickering and other wonderful dales. The service provided by Sykes Cottages is excellent from their easy on-line booking facility, to their accurate description of the property and surrounding area, even had easy directions to find the place, always a bonus after a long drive. This service was followed through when we arrived at the cottage, with useful information contained in their holiday binder, of good places to eat, bus time times and local emergency services. The cottage ticked all our boxes for our family requirements,with spacious rooms, comfortable furniture, and decent size TV !! and provided both a quiet location and scenic location that we had not explored before. It was homely, comfortable, and well provisioned, we especially like the free WiFi provided, a nice touch, allowing us to keep in touch in the evening. My daughter always remembers the horse in the adjoining paddock that greeted us in the mornings and when we arrived back after our day out and about, and the wide variety of wildlife with Pheasants in the garden. Easy to find good pubs to eat in, we always find North York area a gold mine of good value pub meals. Would highly recommend to families looking for a comfortable base, or walkers looking to explore a different dale. A real 5* experience we would love to repeat.
Anthony Burton
February 2010
The most important element about this holiday cottage was undoubtedly its situation, in a quiet dale with moorland walks literally available from the front door. When we visited, the owners were still working on making the garden - which should now be far more attractive. This was a very comfortable house, but amenities such as local pub - which was excellent - and shops were car drive away.I would describe it as an ideal place to explore the North Yorkshire Moors - and you can visit the coast by railway - with steam trains running at weekends. This is a cottage for those who really do want to get away from noise and buste - and how many cottages are there where you can walk just a few paces from the house and find yourself face to face with a deer?
Mr Walker
April 2014
A great cottage in a lovely location and very quiet.
Mr Goodwin
June 2014
All things good,a great location. We enjoyed the fantastic views and had some great walks. Many nice places to visit near hand. We will be back again.
Mrs McCluskey
July 2014
The cottage was comfortable and in a very peaceful setting which could be enjoyed from both the front and back gardens. The owner and housekeeper were extremely helpful.
Mr Ockendon
October 2014
A lovely cottage, would love to own it ourselves, that says it all!
Mr Watkins
May 2015
The location was picturesque, quiet, off the beaten track and well placed for exploring the dales, moors and coast. The property was very comfortable with views from every room. We particularly liked the large ground floor window with its window seats. There was a good level of electrical equipment as well as games and books.
Miss Winrow
June 2015
A lovely peaceful cottage surrounded by beautiful countryside, but with the coast not too far away. It was surprisingly spacious and very well equipped. Could tell it's owners loved the cottage.
Mr Joergensen
July 2015
It was a very nice cottage in a splendid area for walking the moors.
Mrs Millar
October 2015
We liked everything; the location, the quality of the property, and the facilities. The tranquillity and comfort all contributed significantly to an excellent holiday.
Mr Dawes
May 2016
Our fifth visit so that says it all, doesn't it? Excellent location in a peaceful valley. Really clean, spacious and warm. We had our best week there.
Mr Ash
July 2016
A gem of a cottage in one of the most peaceful locations imaginable. We would happily rent this one again.
