  • "Another lovely stay."

    This is a beautiful cottage which we enjoyed sharing with friends, the kitchen/diner is a lovely sociable space. The lounge was cosy and the sofas comfortable. We slept really well in the excellent beds. Just perfect again.

    It's really tranquil and the owner is super nice, wish her so much luck with her two new cottages as she has paid attention to every detail to make the stay very comfortable. Lovely again, just superb.

    It had the best of both Worlds, being both isolated, but not too far from the nearest town. The house was exceptionally clean and comfortable; fully recommend staying!

    The fixtures & fittings are all done to a high standard. The cottage was spotless. Peace and quiet prevailed. 5 stars ⭐️

  • "We stayed in this property for 4 nights."

    The property is very comfortable, well equipped, in immaculate condition and very clean. The owner was very friendly and helpful and there is ample parking. The nearest village, with a pub and cafe is a 5 minute drive away (40 minute walk) along a narrow single track road and Market Weighton is another 5 minutes drive where you will find a Tesco and numerous pubs, restaurants and take aways. It's a good base to explore East Yorkshire, less than an hour to the coast and York is close by too. Overall I would thoroughly recommend this property.

  • "This is a nice comfortable cottage with hotel standard bathrooms."

    There are a couple things not mentioned in the given information about the accommodation, firstly it is beside a country road with a cars, lorries and farm vehicles use, secondly and very much more important, the water for cottage is from a bore hole, those who have any vulnerability need to be aware. This information is given in pack once you have arrived which was a bit late for my husband and I, we were unwell for couple days. The owner was very apologetic and assured us water was treated and filtered. We were just unlucky, so go with plenty of bottled water. Lovely friendly owners with three very quiet young children rarely seen or heard.

  • "Absolutely fabulous."

    This is by far the best accommodation my husband and I have ever stayed in, and we have been self-catering for many years. Everthing was perfect, from the well equipped kitchen - such high quality fixtures and utensils - to the wonderfully comfortable beds. The sheets and pillows are better than I have at home! The en-suite shower rooms also exceeded expectation, again with fitxures of the highest quality. A very quiet location within easy reach of many villages, towns and cities. And the host Joanna was very pleasant and helpful. All in all a 5*+ cottage, which I cannot recommend highly enough. Find an excuse to stay there and you won't want to go home.

    It was very warm, comfortable and well equipped, as well as the provision of good quality bed linen and thick towels such as you would expect in a top class hotel. We really didn't want to leave! Unfortunately we missed out on booking this cottage for the Christmas week as well and had to move on to another cottage. This reinforced just how good The Groom's Cottage is and it was extremely hard not to make comparisons. We look forward to returning.

    We stayed for a week and felt very comfortable, everything was spotless and had all the facilities we needed including lots of extras in the kitchen cupboards such as baking trays, cheese grater and spare tea towel. It had an easy to use washing machine which was great for us being able to pack clean clothes to take back instead of having to do it once home. Our beds were excellent and we enjoyed being able to watch TV in bed early morning with our toddler like we do at home. The owners were available if needed and were very welcoming with 2 very friendly dogs who came to say hello to my little girl which she loved. Its located on their working farm but they didn't wake us or disturb us in any way it was generally very peaceful and lovely to hear the birds singing. The cottage is located a short car journey from Market Weighton which had several take aways and a little supermarket which we used and the local pub in Goodmanham was lovely for a couple of drinks and peaceful in their garden to.the side which had a little children's area. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend, thanks for making our stay so comfortable and also our little welcome pack which was very thoughtful

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments and we look forward to welcoming you back! Property Owner
