The Power House description

Holiday home
The Power House is a superb conversion of a former Victorian powerhouse, just 800 yards from the sandy beach in Skinningrove. The cottage sleeps seventeen people and has six bedrooms (two with an en-suite), a sofa bed and three family bathrooms. It also contains two kitchens with dining areas (one with a snooker table) and two sitting rooms. This property also has an enclosed lawn, courtyard, hot tub and sauna, along with ample off road parking. The Power House is perfect for a large family group to get together and explore the stunning North Yorkshire coast.

This former fishing village is on the Cleveland Way, and visitors will find a collection of interesting houses and a good variety of shops and a beautiful sandy beach within its boundaries. As well as being a fishing village, Skinningrove was part of the Ironstone Mining Industry and there is a museum in the area that charts the history of this industry. Saltburn is just six miles away and has retained much of its Victorian charm, including the pier, colourful Italian Gardens and the oldest water balanced cliff tramway in Britain, well worth a visit. Skinningrove is ideally placed as a base to explore the dramatic scenery of the moors and the many coastal towns and villages in the area, making it a great holiday base.

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.

We found the holiday amazing and had the best time so really happy. I have recommended to friends and shown pictures and would definitely book again in a shot. The Kaskane cafe/bar was brilliant being so close too - perfect! We were blessed with weather also as an added bonus so the walk to the beach worked well too.

There was plenty of room for 11 adults in the property and it was in a good location.

Loved the summer house with the hot tub and loved the house itself. Considering how many people it can hold it was quiet and there's enough space.

An amazing property, the photos don't do it justice. The rooms were clean and had lovely bed linen, towels were provided. The kitchen(s) were perfect, fully fitted with appliances and utensils. The living spaces were ideal for our group, there were plenty of sofas. Everything was simply catered for. Some of my group are looking to re book for their personal use at a later date. Highly recommended.

A brilliant property for the occasion (a 50th birthday), flexible sleeping and good size lounges to enable everyone to get together but also to have some space when needed. House is beautiful, spacious and unique, a real pleasure to be able to spend a week there. Lots of bathrooms too made life much easier! Pet friendly too was a real bonus and made the holiday with friends and family complete.

Everyone really enjoyed the generous space this property offered. The two sitting rooms were particularly useful. As we did our own catering, the two kitchens provided all the facilities we needed to prepare all our meals. This was a family gathering to celebrate our ruby wedding and we took some group photos on the lovely feature staircase. We wouldn't hesitate to come back .

We had an amazing stay at The Power House. There was plenty of room for all of us to spread out and be comfortable. The hot tub was also a boon and enjoyed by all. We were able to host a wonderful and memorable 80th birthday dinner for my father-in-law, and cooked a banquet for twenty-two in the two well equipped kitchens. A day that will be cherished for many years. We loved it even in December, and would love to come again in the summer too, to make use of the great looking BBQ area.Thank you for providing the space to have a great, big family get-together!

Loved the size of the property, we were a party of 12 and there was enough bedrooms for all our party, this gave everyone their own space. The hot tub and pool table were the real selling point to my using of the property, because Skinningrove is such a small area it meant our party could spend time together.

The Power House is an amazing place for a large family to have a break, there is loads of room so you can have alone time if wanted. The hot tub amazing.

The whole Power House experience was brilliant! There was plenty of room for all of us, with a beautifully presented house that suited our needs excellently.

The Power House was the perfect size for our family holiday. We booked it for my Dads 50th as a surprise and it exceeded all expectations. Everybody had their own space and the sitting rooms were more than big enough for us all to enjoy a few drinks together. The pool table was a hit with the kids and the grown ups!

It was a lovely big house, well suited for our party of 12. The table which turned into a snooker table was an excellent idea! It was nice having the choice of two rooms to sit in. There was also ample private parking for all our vehicles.

The Power House was ideal for our large family, with 2 fully fitted kitchens making catering and clearing up easy.

A very spacious House ideal for a large family group like ours. The hot tub was scrupulously clean and checked regularly by the owner who was very pleasant and helpful.

The Power House is a beautiful house the pictures on the website don't do it justice. The house is well equipped and very clean, the hot tub is lovely. We went as a large family group and everyone thought the place was fabulous, the location is a good base to discover North Yorkshire. I would recommend the Power House to family and friends.

This was our 2nd visit to The Power House and it did not disappoint. An excellent stay, we had a lovely 3 days and I cannot fault the place, it has everything for a fantastic family break. The facilities were top notch, there isn't one thing to complain about, only the the fact that we had to come home. Looking forward to booking this property again, it is excellent for large groups or families.

We had an amazing time, The Power House was faultless and the village it is in was pleasant and friendly. There is a pub/restaurant virtually next door that is very friendly, serves lovely meals and welcomes children and dogs. The Power House itself is an amazing place to stay, it has plenty of room for family's to spend a holiday together without been under each others feet, it has everything you could possibly need and more. It is beautiful to look at and is in a nice quiet location and its own grounds are private, ideal if you want to have a BBQ. All in all I couldn't find fault in the place and would and have recommended it to my family and friends.

We had my hen do at the Powerhouse last weekend and then stayed on for the week. It is the perfect place to relax in the hot tub & have fun. I have never had such a relaxing holiday. The photos do not do it justice! It is amazing. The staircase when you enter is just breathtaking. The beds were realkly compfy and the place was clean and had everything you need. There is plenty in the house to keep you occupied, like board games, snooker table, DVD's, books and plenty of old school CD's! Skinningrove has got a beautiful beach, perfect for the doggies. It is an easy drive to Whitby but far enough to not have all the hustle & bustle. There is a great friendly little pub just next door and a little chippy 5 minutes walk away (you need to try the whitby scampy!) The owners of the Powerhouse are lovely. I would recommend the powerhouse and we will be back!

The facilities included were perfect with all the comforts from home. We prepared family meals every day with ease. The kitchens were great and having a full size fridge/freezer helped as we were able to do a big shop for the week. The House was luxurious and large enough for us all to have our own space if we wanted it and the cosy lounges were great for us all to spend time together too. Best of both worlds! We were within walking distance of the sandy beach which the dogs loved and a lovely coffee shop/cafe/bar 2 minutes away (dog friendly).

Spacious accommodation, quiet location and a fully enclosed, safe garden for our dogs. The owner was friendly and helpful.
September 2016
We found the house more than suitable for our needs, good location easy to get around with a car, excellent eating place next door virtually, the mining museum excellent too, are certainly going back.
March 2015
Good lay out inside for what we wanted. Bed linen and towels clean. Hot tub which is quite new very clean and made the stay more enjoyable.All bathrooms,shower cubicles and toilets need a deep clean with bleach as does floor in main bathroom. One of the shower curtains needed replacing. There was a smell in the main bathroom and utility(possilbly foist or damp).DIY needed on minor faults. ie curtain tieback hooks,window latch broken and hanging hooks.The baking tins in cookers needed to be cleaned before use.
July 2015
Stayed here for a hen weekend in June. It was fantastic. The house is so grand, everyone was so impressed. Clean towels and linen provided. We thought it was all very clean and tidy. The hot tub in the summer house was amazing, mood lighting and music too. Very good location, it was easy to find and in a lovely village. I would definitely recommend this and would stay again.

The powerhouse is very impressive from the outside, unfortunately the inside is not so good Some of the kitchen pans needed cleaning before use plus one of the ovens didn't seem to be working properly although it was handy having two kitchens. The utility room had a smell no idea why. The shower curtain in the jack and Jill room needed replacing plus the main bathroom needed a deep clean. Several smaller things needed attention On the plus side the hot tub was excellent and very clean. The owner was very pleasant. With a deep clean throughout the property could be very good
