Description

A wonderful conversion of a former Victorian powerhouse, 800 yards from the sandy beach in the former fishing village of Skinningrove. Restored to a very high standard, this house in Skinningrove includes a magnificent entrance hall with central ash staircase leading to a galleried landing with leaded glass dome. The Power House offers superb, light and airy accommodation, including a sitting room with feature Victorian cast iron fireplace, arched windows and sea views. Large kitchen that provides all the facilities that you will need including a glorious Yorkshire range, a real focal point of this Skinningrove cottage, and one of the dining tables incorporates a slate bed snooker table. There are two sitting rooms, both with TVs, one of which has a double sofa bed and ramped access, which may make this delightful property suitable for accompanied disabled. Six bedrooms include two with four poster beds and two with en-suite bathrooms, offering a touch of luxury as well as great flexibility over the sleeping arrangements. A family sized bedroom that sleeps four has two single beds on a mezzanine floor with a distinctive porthole giving sea views, plus there are three further bathrooms, one of which boasts a beautiful roll-top slipper bath. The historic town of Whitby and the coastal villages of Staithes and Runswick Bay are all easily reached, as is the lovely scenery of the nearby North York Moors National Park, making this a great Skinningrove holiday cottage for exploring this fabulous region, any time of the year.
This former fishing village is on the Cleveland Way, and visitors will find a collection of interesting houses and a good variety of shops and a beautiful sandy beach within its boundaries. As well as being a fishing village, Skinningrove was part of the Ironstone Mining Industry and there is a museum in the area that charts the history of this industry. Saltburn is just six miles away and has retained much of its Victorian charm, including the pier, colourful Italian Gardens and the oldest water balanced cliff tramway in Britain, well worth a visit. Skinningrove is ideally placed as a base to explore the dramatic scenery of the moors and the many coastal towns and villages in the area, making it a great holiday base.

‘Any complaints will appear beyond trivial, from arriving to leaving an excellent place to stay and use as a base to explore the wider area. 12 of us and 4 dogs really enjoyed our week long stay here, so much space, everything you need for a self catering break, 2 kitchens, 2 living rooms, comfy beds, excellent hot tub and sauna (cleaned every day), plenty of parking, secure garden area for the dogs. If i had one very minor complaint, i would suggest doubling or even trebling the amount of Recycling dustbins, will filled one after 3 days:). WiFi excellent, giant TV to watch the Rugby on, and a huge kitchen table for sitting round (Doubles as a snooker/pool table apparantly, but too many Bottles on it to check). Owner (and family) very friendly, both on arrival and leaving, apart from cleaning the hot tub, never saw them during the week, nor needed to.’

‘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.’

‘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!’

‘First impressions was of a beautiful we?l presented large house. Lots of rooms for the 9 of us that visited (included 2 infants who were supplied with cots, high chairs and walkers) however the house would benefit from some repairs that would make it even more impressive. We noticed broken toilet roll holders, toilet seats that didn't fit, broken curtain tie backs etc. A deep clean of some area would also improve the experience. However we had a great break and the owners couldn't have been more helpful.’

‘We booked a 3 night stay at the Power House as part of my mums 60th birthday celebrations. There were 11of us including 2 under 3's and 2 16 year olds. Each and every one of us had a blast! The house was immaculate, it's spacious but warm and cosy. We definitely felt it was a home away from home. There were 2 fully equipped kitchens and 2 living rooms with everything we needed. We also had tea, coffee and biscuits waiting for us on arrival. We were also given a full tour of the house and instructions on how everything worked upon arrival. The hot tub and sauna were the icing on the cake and we made the most of the facilities every night! We took a trip to Skinningrove beach, which was a short drive away and the kids absolutely loved it. The following day we went to Whitby which was also lovely and only about 30 minutes away. We had a truly wonderful time and the venue is suitable for any sort of break with family or friends. I would definitely book again for a girls getaway in the future.’

‘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!’

‘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!’
