Thank you Helen for an amazing weekend in your gorgeous cottage! We had such a great time and it was all down to your attention for detail and thoughfullness. The cottage is immaculate and very cosy! We had the woodburner on every night which was really nice to unwind after a day out! York is only a 20-25 minute car journey away and the park and ride was brilliant. Pocklington is really nice and has all the shops you could need! All in all dont hesitate to book this cottage! :)

“Fab!!”
Reviewed October 13, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Lovely little cottage in the perfect place for exploring york. Helen, the owner, was there to greet us with a wam welcome upon arrival. The village itself was a 30 sec walk away which was full of cute tea rooms, gift shops and plenty of places to eat.
We caught the park and ride, a 15 minute drive away, into york and was lovely to be able to come back to this cute little cottage and light the log fire.
We also went to the York designer outlet centre which was a 25 minute drive away.
Have already recommended this cottage to friends and family.

“A comfortable and cosy cottage. Perfect to come back to after a busy day sight-seeing”
Reviewed September 22, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a warm welcome from Helen and Patrick. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. Easy to find and ideally located for getting into York and exploring the surrounding area. Pocklington itself is a lovely town where you can get everything you need and lots of choice for places to eat.

“A brilliant place to stay in Yorkshire”
Reviewed September 7, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We just loved the six days we spent in this wonderfully planned little unit right in the heart of Pocklington village. It was great to be able to stroll to the shops to get our groceries and really feel part of the town. Helen and Patrick were excellent hosts and very welcoming and helpful. The unit is perfect for a couple, with a lovely bedroom and very well planned bathroom upstairs, and living areas downstairs. We loved being able to drive to the Park & Ride to travel very cheaply into York, where there is so much to do. I really can recommend this as a perfect place to stay in Yorkshire.

“A LITTLE GEM OF A PLACE”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Stayed here for a long weekend this past weekend and it was lovely. From the assistance Helen provided on booking to the wonderful welcome we received from her and Patrick, we were very impressed. Fresh flowers from their gorgeous garden in the vase on the window sill were also a nice touch. The cottage itself is immaculate and spotlessly clean - no doubt as a result of hard work and vigilence! It's a proper little gem, as is Pocklington itself - a quaint village with a vast array of gift shops, nice pubs and lovely restaurants - we liked Sonali (Indian) and The Feathers (pub food). It's an ideal place to base yourself for touring the area and a lot more reasonably priced than many of the places closer to York. We visited the Humber bridge and nature reserve on our way up, Castle Howard the next day (well worth it!) and Bridlington on our last day (won't recommend it unless you like cheap food, cheap novelties, fairgrounds and amusement arcades!). Helen and Patrick will do well with this venture and if you book with them, you certainly won't be disappointed. We highly recommend this cottage and Pocklington!
