Great dog friendly house
Had an amazing stay here, very comfortable and in a great location close to all you need. I?ve been to Whitby several times and stayed in different places but this was ideal for my family and the dog. Very helpful owner and I would stay here again. Good value for money too. We didn?t want to leave

Lovely place
House was great. Very clean and comfortable. Nicely decorated with wonderful quirky features like the alcove on the stair and the many small cupboards in the two top bedrooms. Travel cot was provided and easy to set up. High chair was also provided but it didn't look very clean so we didnt use that, however it was great that there was baby friendly cutlery and plates available. Stayed 11 nights so having a hoover and mop available was great to ensure the floor was clean for my one year old. Would have been good to have two working stair gates, but worked fine having one on the stairs going down to the door. Great being so close to town and having bothams at the end of the street for bread etc in the mornings was ideal. This is the first time we have stayed this side of town so it was like a different type of holiday, spending much more time on the Victorian side of town. Walked the dog to West Cliff every morning and evening, perfect distance for an old dog. Overall we loved staying here and would stay here again thank you for having such a lovely place.

Fabulous accommodation
We recently stayed here and was pleasantly surprised how clean and spacious the place was, It had everything and more than we needed and was only 1 minutes walk into town, I would highly recommend firemans rest and look forward to returning to this lovely home from home place, thanks.

Without doubt the worst cottage I've ever been in. Dirty and old don't be tempted to go. I hope the rest of Sykes cottages are better than this one. Someone should check it out and remove it from let's.

Short Break
We stayed here as a family in January and have to say that it was perfect for us; warm, cosy, comfortable, well-equipped and centrally located near to Skinner Street but also the sea. We know Whitby very well and have stayed in many properties and so have seen good and bad over the years. Our group ranged in age from grandparent to baby and yet the cottage had all that we needed. The owner was extremely helpful and on hand if we needed him. We would most definitely stay there again.
