Engine Room provided an ideal break for three generations, six people and dog but it never felt crowded. The accommodation is spacious and well organised. It is fully and thoughtfully stocked with all amenities. The view from the back is spectacular and we were able to watch new born lambs jump about. Even in a spectacularly wet Easter week we were able to find plenty to do: Sledmere House is fascinating to visit (read the book by the present baronet's younger brother) and the farm shop and the Triton Inn are great assets.
Couldn’t have had a nicer cottage to stay in. The views from the rear are stunning. Fully equipped property with everything you could wish for. Very spacious and just lovely. We’ll definitely be back!
We stayed at the Engine Room with family friends. In total there were 7 people (and a dog!) staying. The house is absolutely ideal for entertaining large numbers of friends, being at once homely and warm, but also spacious and open plan.
The decor is great - we loved the fire brigade touches - and everything has clearly been done to a very high standard. There are three separate bathrooms, again perfect for large numbers of guests, and the host clearly thinks of every detail for her guests. We had a hamper of goodies upon our arrival, and the house is kitted our with useful appliances like the Nespresso coffee maker.
We will definitely be returning to explore more of the beautiful Wolds countryside. The house, by the way, had an incredible view right from the kitchen window of fields and rolling hills beyond, making for an ethereal and lovely sight on a bright wintry morning with your cup of tea!
Sledmere is a fascinating village, with lovely pubs and a great history due to the huge country estate that dominates the place.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Lovely, bright, modern accommodation. Comfortable and very well appointed. Great location to explore Sledmere itself, the East Coast and the Yorkshire Wolds.
Would love to return.
