“A massive let down!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

This cottage is classed by Sykes as luxurious & it has 5 ticks. We strongly doubt this rating. The interior is spacious & the decor has been well thought out, but there are things that just don't hit the target. Firstly the huge T.V in the sitting room, as seen on the internet, is just a figment of the owners imagination! I am sure there was a lovely big telly there a few years ago, but now it is a tiny little thing, probably about 22 inch, & if you read the visitors book in the cottage this as been the case for quite a while. The kitchen equipment is lacking, this is a SELF CATERING holiday & therefore certain items should be supplied. NO COLANDER, NO FISH SLICE (we ended up buying one for £1.00), NO LARGER BOWLS/DISHES FOR SALADS ETC, CHEAP CUTLERY, BROKEN CHEESE GRATER, A BOX FOR AN IRON BUT LOOKED INSIDE, & NO IRON, NO BROOM.We have stayed in 4 star properties which have been far better equipped. Up stairs there is a cream carpet. It is badly stained in places especially in the master bedroom where there is a big stain right by the bed. I couldn't understand why the duvet had been put on patterned side down & when I turned it over there was a tear in the cover! No mirror at all in the master bedroom, 3 cheap plastic coat hangers & when we asked for more the owners produced a jumble of hangers for a 2year old!! The smaller bedroom had no T.V even though it states on the web that there is one in each bedroom, this also had been mentioned by previous guests. The bathroom has no socket for electric razors, & if you are short (as I am) good luck with the sink! But it is the outside which is the biggest let down. The front is scruffy , with overgrown shrubs a border of weeds, an old built in BBQ, all in all not a good first impression. The hot tub is in the back courtyard, & this area needs a lot to be done to it to make it look attractive, the cover over the hot tub is ripped, & as it is not hinged it is very heavy & awkward to get on & off. The rockery is full of weeds, there are shrubs & some bamboo but it all looks dull & depressing. There are fairy lights strung around, none of these work & the wires are just left along with the disconnected canopy which just looks awful. The decking is very grubby & needs a good power wash & it is also very slippery when wet, so please be careful! Sorry about this folks but we would not recommend this place to friends & family & if you have booked this for later in the season we really hope the owners has done some maintenance by the time of your visit. We could say a lot more but think that is enough for now!!

“Fantastic Cottage & Location”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Stayed with my wife and two year old son and our dog recently. Cottage was great and the owners lovely. Fresh eggs every day and lovely for our son to be able to see the animals each day. Location was fantastic the beach at Runswick Bay a mile away and some great day trips out to Whitby, Scarborough and Pickering. The hot tub was an added bonus!

“Nearly.....but not quite...”
Reviewed 7 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Just stayed at st.hilda cottage....on arrival we were a little bit disappointed,as small points let this holiday stay down,nothing major wrong with the place,and the owners are very nice,Dave and Linda .but a few things need adding or taking away for this to be a five star accomadation .....flowers around the front and in the rear to give a nice view from the hot tub....blinds on the skylights in the bedrooms,tables next to beds on both sides,don't get me wrong,the place is decorated and equipped to a high standard,the farm has more animals than any farm I've ever seen,and great local walks,the town has a great pub called the badger hounds,a chippy,butchers,and a shop....staithes,runswick bay and Whitby all worth a visit.
