    We booked to stay at Weatheroak because it was a 4 star property that allowed a dog. The pictures of the cottage seemed nice but it did look dated. Unfortunately, the property was very disappointing and no where near a 4 star rating, it should only be worthy of being rated as 2 stars at most due to the appalling state of cleanliness and I feel that is probably generous. We felt like going straight home and not staying but we had not had a holiday for a while and decided to stick it out. The cottage was absolutely filthy, the floors were grimy and sticky, you did not want to take your shoes off. Many of the electric fittings are really old and some switches do not work. We had to clean the kitchen ourselves before we unpacked our food. The microwave had ingrained dirt in it, the toaster had a years worth of crumbs under it, the cupboards were falling apart and full of dirt and we had to wash all the cutlery before we used it. We didn't feel like we wanted to cook in there. One of the strip light fittings had broken glass. There was damp around the back door. The bathroom had damp and mould on the walls as did the bath and tiles and the tiles looked like it had never been cleaned. It was appalling and got on your chest every time you went in there. The floorboards upstairs creaked so badly that you felt you might fall through the floor. We dared not get up in the night to go to the toilet or everyone would be woken up. The bed in the double bedroom upstairs creaked badly and the headboard was loose. My wife ended up having to sleep on the sofa as she could not sleep in there and I had to wear ear plugs. It was so uncomfortable. The upstairs toilet had a repair to the floor with DUCK-TAPE all the way around it, we were worried siting on it in case it collapsed. The banister upstairs was broken, fortunately our party did not have small children as the worry would be that they could trap their heads in the hole. There was dirt behind every piece of furniture it was clear any cleaning was purely superficial. We wrote in the guest and suggestions books but it is clear that poor reviews are ripped out as evident by the number of pages torn out. For a place that takes dogs, the garden in not secure with fences either side of the property, so your dogs or children for that matter could wander around the front. Overall, this was the worst place we had ever stayed in. It is a shame because the location is great, Sleights itself is lovely and the Plough an Eskdale Fisheries offered good food. AVOID !

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are sorry that the cleanliness of the property did not meet your expectations; however we have not had any problems before. The property is carpeted so we are surprised regarding your comments on the floor boards. Regarding the toilet there was a small piece of duct tape visible due to a plumbing repair that had taken place recently. The bannister has since been repaired. The property is surrounded by fields and we do not advertise the garden as being 100% secure.

    I was with my handicap son (49ys old). Inside the Bungalow was ideal for us. Outside was a bit tricky for access. For the less mobile a hand rail at the side of the three steps at the front would be a great asset as the steps are set at an angle. We negotiated entry by the back door less steps and a hand rail. We were very happy with the accommodation using only the ground floor.

    We have stayed at Weatheroak many times, we love the area and the property is spacious and in a good location. However we were extremely disappointed on this occasion to find the property did not appear to have been cleaned prior to our arrival, or if it had it was a very poor job! Standards seem to have slipped and it is a shame because it could be a really nice property if some money was spent on it. I think we may look for somewhere else to stay for our next visit to Sleights.

    We had a lovely time in Weatheroak. The house felt spacious, it was very well-equipped and met all our needs. Very quietly located in a pretty village (shops, cafes and pubs all walkable) and you're very well-placed for exploring the local area, as Whitby is only 5 minute drive. The lack of wi-fi was a problem for us on occasion, so would, I'm sure be an idea to install in the future and the garden is not secure for small dogs, however the countryside location did not pose a dangerous threat when he escaped! We would definitely book again too. Many thanks.
