"the location of this cottage is quite superb. the most stunning views over open countryside from the lounge, bedrooms and conservatory. We arrived just before the snow and had two days wondering the local roads with our dog. Very reminiscent of where we used to live in Hereford but here within a short walking distance glorious panoramic views of the sea at Sandsend. The weather went from snow to beautiful spring so we were also able to take short cuts on the many footpaths and through the beautiful Mulgrave Estate. We were able to walk to Whitby along the beach and shortened our route by parking for free in the nearby village of Lythe, From there it is a walk down a steep hill into Sandsend but well worth doing that because the view is fabulous. You do have to climb the steep hill back otherwise there is plenty of parking in Sandsend. The conservatory is heated so we sat in there having afternoon tea watching pheasants and deer right across the valley. A great bonus. Be aware there are no shops within walking distance so you do have to drive to the community shop at Lythe (2 minutes) even to get milk. The house is very spacious and very homely. It is not like some of the show home holiday cottages we have rented in Cornwall but there is everything you need. Television is quite restricted and no Wifi but our phone reception was very good. Like other reviewers we couldn't get the DVD to work but we think this was a problem with the lead connection and we left a message for the owners.The shed with the table tennis was very handy for cleaning up our dog after some very muddy walks. There is a sink and cold water tap in that shed but it is cold in there when the weather is bad.We holiday all across England with our dog and I have to say Whitby and Robin Hood Bay have to be the prettiest seaside resorts I have seen. They are clean and well cared for and a vast improvement on what they were like when I visited 20 years ago. We found a wonderful cafe in Whitby by the Captain Cook museum with really friendly staff and very welcoming to dogs. In fact I think it was a cafe for dogs who were allowed to take their owners in. Very nice coffee and cakes. There is a superb walk along a disused railway line from Ravenscar to Robin hood bay and you can go back along Cleveland way. We didn't get much walking done on the Yorkshire moors because it was extremely boggy from many days of rain in February but we shall certainly go back later in the season to do more walking.The beach at Sandsend and Whitby and Runswick bay, all very close to this cottage ,are the equal of Cornwall. This is a very dog friendly area and very much overlooked as an holiday destination and S15578 is great."

"We four adults shared the cottage this September for our annual painting week away. As it's an old fisherman's cottage - with the ground floor store converted to a kitchen / diner it does have idiosyncrasies. The first is that - as they warn - it is split over four floors with steep, winding, narrow stairs between them. because it's built against the hillside it gets bigger as it goes up. The ground floor is smallest and has just one small window. However the lighting is good and we soon settled to cooking, eating and even painting down there. There's also a side, shared but private set of stairs with a door to the lounge on the first floor. This is the easiest route to get luggage in and out. The stairs then lead to a second floor with a little gate to the utility room and a basic outside loo. Then on to a small terrace with chair and table (also a painting location) and on again to a barbecue terrace which we didn't use. The second floor has a large double bedroom and a good bathroom with an excellent shower. The third floor has three attic bedrooms and a tiny, basic bathroom. There's plentiful hot water - but it is almost dangerously hot.All the furniture - beds, sofas etc were comfortable and in good condition. The decor is not modern but homely. We quickly settled in and enjoyed its wonderful location at the heart of the village. It all worked! We had been concerned that there is a fish and chip shop on the lane but it closes by 8pm and supplies good fish!There are two real bonuses:- A car parking space - these are like gold dust in the village. The lane (Albion Street) is very narrow in places so only one of our cars fitted - the other - an Audi Q5 - had just a centimetre or two spare so only did the initial luggage drop. After that we had booked the Fisherhead car park which is a short and pretty climb through back streets.- There is good Wifi from the local service installed in the house."

"We had a great holiday. We enjoyed walks from the cottage within the grounds, found a shady stream with a rope swing. Short drive to carisbrooke castle, colwell bay (sandy beach, great for going in the sea) and mottistone. We booked a Tesco delivery for our arrival and then did little shops at Lidl. There's a family sized fridge freezer so you can do a weeks shop. We went to a lifeboat launch at Bembridge, and cycled the red squirrel trail from shanklin. We ate at Pavarotti's in shanklin, highly recommend, and went to the chine in the evening. We also went to godshill model village.We had glorious weather which always helps, but there was lots to do, could have happily filled 2 weeks! The children loved being at calbourne mill, we went every morning before they open at 10 to feed the birds and have a pedalo. Youngest child loved the lego table. The lodge is very comfortable, bigger than I expected from the photos. It was lovely and clean and the beds comfortable. The big windows upstairs stopped it getting stuffy or too hot. We didn't get pestered by the birds at all, the children loved seeing them walk about. We ate all our meals on the veranda and didn't use the dining room at all but it was very spacious. Thank you for a lovely holiday."

"Our second stay at S15578 which was as good as the first. It is an excellent, peaceful and private cottage in lovely surroundings. The garden was beautiful with autumn just arriving and the views are great. It was a bit chilly at night but the very efficient heating soon saw to that. The only minor downsides we can think of is the distance from where you park your car to the house and it is up quite a steep incline, which could be an issue for people with limited mobility. Having said that, you could park outside the front of the house to drop people and stuff off but the path is still a little steep though not too bad. There is no Wi-Fi but a there is good 4G signal. The welcome pack was minimal compared to other cottages we've stayed at but it's not a deal breaker. Our dog loved the enclosed garden and there are nearby walks to enjoy. Whitby is less than 15 minutes drive away and on the way in a stop at Sandsend is recommended. Other nearby local attractions are Runswick Bay, (check tide times first as when it comes in it's in!), and Scaling Reservoir. A bit further away is the village of Goathland, of course famous for being Heartbeat's filming location, and the North Yorkshire Moors. We will definitely be back again."

"We enjoyed Mackenzie Apartment. It is in a good location for accessing restaurants and sightseeing. The apartment was well equipped with kitchen utensils and basic necessities. It was very nice to have a container of milk in the fridge and a package of cookies waiting for us. I do have a few recommendations though. The bathtub was very luxurious, but we could not avoid spraying water around a bit while bathing. Possibly providing a moveable shower curtain would help. Also, the wooden blinds were broken, which significantly reduced our privacy. We were able to cover them with a blanket for the short term. We notified the property management team when we checked out, and they were aware of the broken blinds, and were in the process of getting them repaired. The flat is on the 2nd floor, which makes carrying up luggage a bit challenging and there isn't any parking provided. We had to park at the nearest carpark at an additional 9 pounds per day. Also, the lounge/kitchen area was a bit overcrowded with unnecessary antique furniture and too many bar stools for such a compact area."
