Delight at the welcome pack that is awaiting your arrival, boasting a bottle of fizz that you can open up at the dining table to toast to a wonderful holiday with your loved ones before tucking into a home-cooked dish or a local takeaway.

Retire to the sitting room, where exposed beams frame the plush sofas, which are piled with sumptuous cushions and warming blankets, inviting you in to tune in to the TV to catch up on the latest box set.

From here, take the winding staircase to reach the spacious landing, which grants access to the master suite containing a plush double bed draped in quality linens, as well as exposed beams to highlight the character of this former Post Office.

Completing the bedroom is another bright and contemporary double, and a twin attic bedroom (accessed via the master).

Concluding the interior of the cottage is a family bathroom, containing a shower over bath.

The garden area is equally as impressive, complete with a large patio area for allowing your canine companions to stretch their legs, whilst you savour a moment of relaxation with a dip into the bubbling hot tub.

Here, you will also find a handy outhouse with a washing machine, and perfect for storing bikes and muddy boots after a day exploring the area.

This East Riding of Yorkshire village and civil parish plays host to a number of amenities, including a selection of takeaways, convenience stores, a charming village hall, the Duke of Cumberland pub and a working railway providing easy access to the city of Hull.
