The cottage is cosy and in the best meaning of the word: comfortable; warm and relaxing. Ideal for a couple. It is spotlessly clean with clear attention to detail from the owners: fresh flowers; a handwritten welcome note and a box of eggs from their lovely chickens. Helpful additions include: milk; tea bags; coffee; cooking oils; condiments; shower/bath gel and shampoo and all matters for dish and clothes washing.
The owners, Helen and Patrick, make you very welcome when you arrive and assure you of their availability throughout your stay. They provide helpful tips on places to visit. They provide total access to their garden. Their chickens are an absolute delight and make regular visits if you sit outside on the patio.
The place itself is located for exploring the Yorkshire Wolds (check the map for exact entry points and places to park); Bempton Cliffs (RSPB nature reserve £4 per adult for non members) is just over an hour's drive but worthy just to see the cute Puffins!! Pocklington Canal is a lovely walk and the Canal Head is in Pocklington opposite the Wellington Pub!
Pocklington is a lovely little town with plenty of cafes; pubs/restaurants and a couple of rather nice chippys!
Would definitely recommend.
This is all you need for a break away. Home from home. Log burner, lovely sitting area. Bed is super comfy! Very clean and well kept cottage and very close to Pocklington's pubs, restaurants and shops. Would recommend to family and friends.Host Helen was friendly and very helpful.
The cottage is beautiful - cozy and comfortable but with modern amenities. I hit a cold spell during my stay but the cottage was always warm - I loved the underfloor heating downstairs. The location cannot be improved upon - literally minutes to the main street and shops/ restaurants but still quiet and private. I loved the offstreet parking/ access which added to the feeling of privacy. Helen was lovely - accommodating on my arrival and departure times and left milk, eggs (from the chickens that roam around the pretty gardens), tea, coffee to get me started. No question I will be back.
We stayed in Pocklington for three nights for a 90th birthday and all other guests commented on how we had the best accomodation. Patrick & Helen were excellent from the beginning to end. They were available to greet us, with friendly chat, fresh eggs in the fridge from their hens and then left us to enjoy our stay with the knowledge that if we needed anything we could call on them. The accomodation ticked the three C's for us: cosy, clean and so close to town.
Look no further as would recommend Carpenters Cottage to everyone.
