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.


Amazing amazing amazing.
I have recently returned from my sisters hen weekend at The Powerhouse. What an amazing time we had. The house was stunning from the outside. The hot tub room and sauna were fabulous. There is lights in the hottub and hot tub room itself. There is a built in speaker within the room which can be plugged in by aux cable. The rooms were fab with plenty of bathrooms. Towels provided for showering. Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits provided and other helpful things such as dish washer tablets. There was 2 cookers and 2 fridgefreezers which helped to keep our alcohol and food cool. We used one for food and one for alcohol. The hottub was checked each day and topped up. Small little down points. Big bath tubing is loose so the bath leaked. One toilet roll provided for whole house, luckily we bought some. And the bbq wasn't cleaned and put back together. These were minor and did not stop me rating it 5 stars.

Absolutely fabulous
What an amazing place. We stayed here with family for a week to celebrate my husband's 70th bday. Everyone had a great time. Our dogs had a great time too, very dog friendly.

Mum's 60th birthday weekend
Just got back yesterday 22nd January, what a fabulous weekend we all had 16 of us and a dog. The house is beautiful couldn't ask for anything better, there was 7 kid's and they were no bother at all kept busy with the hot tub and pool table. Would recommend the power house and we will definitely be going back thank you.

Beautiful house, perfect for relaxation and party!
Stayed here for a week to welcome in the new year with family and friends. There were 17 of us in total ranging from 12 months to 56 years old! Every single one of us had a blast, lots to do around the house with the games supplied, hot tub and sauna, Netflix and the pool/snooker table. The owners were very helpful and it's a straight road, 30 minute drive to whitby so perfectly located. Myself and my partner stayed in the double room with en suite At the end of the long corridor and on three separate nights there was a strong smell of burning matches but we couldn't find anyone burning them which was very odd but the house is so welcoming and cosy. The beds are super comfy and two fridges are perfect for storing the food and alcohol separate! I can't recommend this place highly enough, if you're a large group looking for a get away then I highly recommend you try the power house!

Our party of 16 friends and family stayed here for a long weekend in early January and had an amazing time. There are three birthdays in the group within three days so we always go away that same weekend. The age ranges were 14 to 73. The house was ideal, with lots of living space so we didn't feel on top of each other at all. The house is very clean, is beautifully decorated and the furniture is all to a very high standard. The house was lovely and warm all the time. The house is perfect for a large friends/family get-together. There are two large bedrooms with four poster beds which are en-suite. There is one double bedroom with two twin beds on a mezzanine floor. There is one treble bedroom and two further rooms with twin beds, one of which is en-suite. There is one shower room and toilet on the ground floor and a further bathroom on the second floor. The beds are really comfy and the bed linen was all really clean and good quality. We never struggled for hot water even though all five showers were running at the same time on the Saturday morning. There are two fully equipped kitchens with three large dining tables, one of which is also a snooker table. We cooked a Christmas dinner for all 16 adults on the Sunday and didn?t struggle for oven space or roasting tins and pans etc. We had brought three slow cookers for the Saturday night but there were two large ones in the house anyway. There's are two large fridge-freezers (we used one for food and one for beer) and two dishwashers. There are two lounge areas, both really comfortable. Both have large TVS one of which is fitted with Netflix so we used that one more than the other room. Outside there is a separate building with a large hot tub and a small sauna. The house is in a good quiet location, there is a restaurant (KasKane) within 2 minutes walk that service excellent food and reasonable prices. We had a fabulous time and will definitely look to book again!!!
