“The Perfect Weekend”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We have just arrived home today after a fantastic couple of days at the Power House. We were a group of 13 for a hen party - we typically aren't a fan traipsing round the city with various hen do miscellany so hiring a cottage for the weekend was the perfect alternative.

The house is stocked well - tea coffee and a packet of biscuits on arrival was a nice touch. The beds were very comfy (at least mine was, and judging by some of the lie-ins the rest of the group had, they can't have been half bad :) )

The house is lovely - plenty of room for everyone and plenty of bathrooms and showers etc, so no queuing for facilities. Two kitchens helped the breakfast prep no end!! We also wanted to spend time as a group, and there was plenty of space around the kitchen table / snooker table.

There is a large Asda about a 10 min drive away from the Power House, so easy to get the essentials in.

We went into Saltburn for the day on Saturday - a minibus for the group was £20 each way which was extremely reasonable. Saltburn was great though we did spend the majority of our time in the lovely Vista Mar..... Definitely get some fish and chips from the Seaview, Delicious!

Ah and yes - the hot tub. Lots of fun, it is very funky with the multi-coloured lights and the music system, really does add something to the party!! Bring your flip flops as the floor does get a bit slippy...

Great weekend, one which us girls will be talking about for a while!! Thank you!!

“Fantastic place! Perfect”
Reviewed October 7, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had my hen do at the Powerhouse last weekend and then stayed on for the week. It is the perfect place to relax in the hot tub & have fun. I have never had such a relaxing holiday. The photos do not do it justice! It is amazing. The staircase when you enter is just breathtaking. The beds were realkly compfy and the place was clean and had everything you need. There is plenty in the house to keep you occupied, like board games, snooker table, DVD's, books and plenty of old school CD's! Skinningrove has got a beautiful beach, perfect for the doggies. It is an easy drive to Whitby but far enough to not have all the hustle & bustle. There is a great friendly little pub just next door and a little chippy 5 minutes walk away (you need to try the whitby scampy!) The owners of the Powerhouse are lovely. I would recommend the powerhouse and we will be back!

“Excellent house”
Reviewed July 1, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stayed here for a hen weekend in June. It was fantastic. The house is so grand, everyone was so impressed. Clean towels and linen provided. We thought it was all very clean and tidy. The hot tub in the summer house was amazing, mood lighting and music too. Very good location, it was easy to find and in a lovely village. I would definitely recommend this and would stay again.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

people found this review helpful

The powerhouse is very impressive from the outside, unfortunately the inside is not so good Some of the kitchen pans needed cleaning before use plus one of the ovens didn't seem to be working properly although it was handy having two kitchens. The utility room had a smell no idea why. The shower curtain in the jack and Jill room needed replacing plus the main bathroom needed a deep clean. Several smaller things needed attention On the plus side the hot tub was excellent and very clean. The owner was very pleasant. With a deep clean throughout the property could be very good

Good lay out inside for what we wanted. Bed linen and towels clean. Hot tub which is quite new very clean and made the stay more enjoyable.All bathrooms,shower cubicles and toilets need a deep clean with bleach as does floor in main bathroom. One of the shower curtains needed replacing. There was a smell in the main bathroom and utility(possilbly foist or damp).DIY needed on minor faults. ie curtain tieback hooks,window latch broken and hanging hooks.The baking tins in cookers needed to be cleaned before use.
