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.

I suppose nice sums it up really. It was nice. The location was good, central ish, not too far to walk to anywhere. I stayed with my parents, they booked it as it was great they could take the dog. The house was tidy, well kept, reasonable facilities. Downsides were, it wasn't advertised (where they booked it) that there were steps to it. My dad is disabled, so struggled some days if we had been walking a lot. There is a lack of mod cons... Most importantly Internet! Not a big deal for some on holiday, but for me with my folks, I would have liked it!!! We also couldn't find a guest handbook? Usually in private rentals you find some kind of welcome book. Also, the upstairs bedrooms are difficult to get to, the stairs are very narrow and there is limited headroom. I don't mean the review to sound negative, I didn't pay for the rental I'm sure for the price there was adequate. Could just do with some attention.

Whitby was lovely and very interesting. The cottage was as good as a cottage could be. We had a wonderful time.
