This converted Victorian powerhouse is situated in the village of Skinningrove on the Cleveland Way footpath in North Yorkshire and can sleep seventeen people in six bedrooms.

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. A shared enclosed lawn and courtyard can be enjoyed outside 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.


The Perfect Weekend
We have just arrived home today after a fantastic couple of days at the Power House. We were a group of 13 for a hen party - we typically aren't a fan traipsing round the city with various hen do miscellany so hiring a cottage for the weekend was the perfect alternative. The house is stocked well - tea coffee and a packet of biscuits on arrival was a nice touch. The beds were very comfy (at least mine was, and judging by some of the lie-ins the rest of the group had, they can't have been half bad :) ) The house is lovely - plenty of room for everyone and plenty of bathrooms and showers etc, so no queuing for facilities. Two kitchens helped the breakfast prep no end!! We also wanted to spend time as a group, and there was plenty of space around the kitchen table / snooker table. There is a large Asda about a 10 min drive away from the Power House, so easy to get the essentials in. We went into Saltburn for the day on Saturday - a minibus for the group was ?20 each way which was extremely reasonable. Saltburn was great though we did spend the majority of our time in the lovely Vista Mar..... Definitely get some fish and chips from the Seaview, Delicious! Ah and yes - the hot tub. Lots of fun, it is very funky with the multi-coloured lights and the music system, really does add something to the party!! Bring your flip flops as the floor does get a bit slippy... Great weekend, one which us girls will be talking about for a while!! Thank you!!

Fantastic place! Perfect
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!

Loved it
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.

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

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.
