On the banks of the River Ouse, this bolthole cottage for two encourages walking and bike riding excursions amongst the splendid scenery of the East Riding of Yorkshire. Backed by the Yorkshire Wolds and just a driving distance from York (25 miles) and Hull (31 miles), you’ve got a variety of local appeals to choose from when planning daily activities throughout your stay. The cottage itself is well-presented with everything you might need for a comfortable retreat, complete with a pretty garden for wildlife spotting or gazing up at starry night skies with a morning coffee or late-night drink.

This dynamic property is all laid out on one level, complete with an open-plan living space that gently flows into the super-king-size bedroom. The bedroom offers a zip-and-link bed to add versatility and ensure guests always have a comfortable place to sleep. The lounge/kitchen/diner is spacious and well-equipped, complete with ample comfy seating and a wood burner to keep things cosy and warm. You can choose to dine in here or outside in the pretty garden. With a lawn, a decked patio with plenty of furniture and a BBQ, this outdoor destination is a highlight in the summer months. Back indoors, the property is completed by a spacious and well-appointed bathroom.

A scenic walk along the river leads to Howden (4.5 miles), an old market town with cobbled streets, Georgian architecture and a fine Minster. Local pubs, small boutiques and cosy cafes add to the charm of this pleasant locale. For rural exploration, visit the Yorkshire Wolds, a sweeping section of the East Yorkshire countryside with flowing hills and verdant fields. The towns of Beverley (21.5 miles), Pocklington (21.5 miles) and Market Weighton (16.5 miles) are all pretty destinations within this area, each one worth a visit with incredible walking routes around them.

Perfect secluded location for peace & quiet. Ideal for 2 & your dogs. Warm & cosy. Quiet & comfortable. Walks from the door step in every direction.

Property itself nice enough however too remote for us, anyone going make sure you take everything ie milk and basics if you have a long journey as no nearby store. Not good for nervous dogs as lots of loud bangs (from bird scarers or gunshots) freaked ours out to the point they would go out walking, left early

The cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Modern kitchen and bathroom and good TV reception. We both have mobility issues and were not aware there were steps to the entrance, plus a very small gap between the end of the bed and the wall so difficult to access the far side unless walking crablike. Big comfy bed and linen and towels changRead moreed every week. Despite the mobility problems we enjoyed our stay. Hide

A superbly equipped clean tidy cottage with fabulous dogs walks in and around the cottage surrounding area. Fraisethorpe Beach is a dog friendly beach 35 miles up the road. All the people we encountered were very welcoming and friendly. I would recommend this cottage to couples as it was just perfect in every way.

Wonderful escape to a peaceful countryside retreat. The odd tractor and farmer equipment trundles by and the farm workers come on and out but that is part of the heartbeat of being on a farm. The cottage is warm cosy and inviting and the owners were really helpful with suggestions where to go .

a nice peaceful cottage, but lacks adequate equipment for kitchen, very basic utensils, pans not too good. there is an awful drain smell which lingers all day after showering, which should be addressed, as the problem has been flagged up before. There is no dvd player, which is in the description of the cottage, gas oven needs accurate instructionsRead more. We have stayed in numerous cottages in Yorkshire, and this is the first disappointment, as on the web site it looks really lovely. Hide
