  • "Absolutely beautiful house."

    Spacious and well equipped. The owners offer not only a fabulous stay but a brochure of extra treats , we opted for the in house chef and party pamper. Both were amazing. Our pamper lady was very patience and worked her magic on a bunch of stressful working mums. The in house chef Claire was wonderful and the food was delicious, the service first class. Would highly recommend using this service. This was our third year going away and our first time to Routhorpe Hall we certainly felt like we got it 100% right this time. There isn’t anything negative to say but to note you are just off a country road so expect the odd noise of a motorbike whizzing by. But when you’re facing fields and cows it’s very peaceful and tranquil.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Routhorpe House."

    The house was well presented, spacious and clean. The welcome pack was very much appreciated, along with the complimentary toiletries. Carl, the owner, was friendly and extremely quick to respond to any queries. The kitchen was very well equipped with plenty of crockery, pans and glassware also acrylicware for outdoor use. The large garden was well presented and the hot-tub was an added bonus. I would fully recommend this property.

  • "We stayed at Routhorpe house for my hen do."

    Perfect from start to finish. Correspondence from the owner was spot on, I even received a courtesy call the day before we checked in to wish us a nice stay. Lovely touch. The house and grounds are just beautiful. Tastefully decorated, clean, brilliant little touches to cater for all your requirements. It has everything you could possibly need for a party, a family stay or friends reunion. Loved the Elemis shower gel after the jacuzzi . My hen do exceeded any of my expectations. It was beyond amazing ! Some of us have not seen each other for 25 years, to sit round the table with champagne and share our most treasured memories was so very special. Yoga in the garden and a top notch girls party till the early hours. This house catered for it all ! We are coming back for our reunion next year. Do not hesitate in booking this beautiful house for any event. Just please look after it and treat it with its deserved respect ! Thankyou so much Carl and team. This house is special ! Xx

    The house was decorated beautifully and we really appreciated the attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble and Carl was a very friendly and helpful host. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub after our trips out and about. The town of Beverley is only a short drive away and well worth a visit as well as the many coastal areas. The kitchen is great with all appliances and equipment. We had no difficulties preparing Christmas dinner for 10! Thank you!

    House was beautiful,there is plenty of parking. The house has everything you need, kitchen/utility facilities excellent with so many utensils cups glasses bowls pans etc. Cleaning products provided, handsoap, dishwasher tablets, bin bags, kitchen towels everything you might need. The cleanliness of the house on arrival was great could not fault this at all, house smelt lovely. Love the fact that there are 4 bathrooms to 5 bedrooms and special touch elemis products in every bathroom. Due to the weather we did not get chance to use the outside areas but there is plenty of outside space. Lots of games/sports equipment available for those drier days. Great location and easy to get to, 40 or so mins from York so great for a day out. Plenty of local pubs nearby, ate at the star inn very friendly staff and beautiful food. So pleased with our stay that we immediately booked for next year! Thank you

    The house was lovely, modern, clean and had a warm family feeling. There were 10 of us with a new born baby, and every one of us including baby felt comfortable and relaxed especially with the jaccuzi. Sandra and Carl ensured requested arrangements were completed such as having our requested curry dinners ready on arrival. Which was delectable! We had a room with a king size bed swapped into a twin. We had massages booked for 8 people, and the massouse was truly amazing and prices were so reasonable!! We could not have asked for anything more! Highly recommend!!

    There are hairdryers plus plenty of fans in each room. The sound proofing is great as although it's on a busy road once inside you would never know as you cannot hear a thing. Communication from Carl was brilliant, we had no problems whilst there but he still got in touch just to update us about the gardener etc and we felt that he would of been on hand had we needed anything. We got intouch with him beforehand regarding certain allergies and he was so obliging and everything had been sorted prior to our arrival. There are plenty of games books dvds should you want them. Plus outside is beautiful with swingball, badminton and croquet. There is so much to do in york and all the surrounding areas and Whitby was a very pleasant surprise. What a stunning beach. We had a great stay, its a beautiful property which we didn't spend enough time in because of all things to do and see. We would not hesitate to return again.

    Routhorpe House is beautiful. The location is perfect for Bridlington which we visited whilst we were there. The weather has been perfect too so were able to enjoy the grounds and the hot tub. Carl was really accommodating and always on hand to answer any questions we had with a quick response. We were also left a couple of chilled bottles of prosecco and complimentary tea and coffee which was a nice touch. My only criticism was we could have done with more bin liners as we were a large group but apart from that i could not fault the time we had a Routhorpe House.

  • "Routhorpe House sits in a beautiful spot, close enough to the sea and yet quiet enough in the countryside."

    We were 3 generations travelling for a 60th birthday celebration and chose the house due to the reviews, pictures and its proximity to things we love - Flamborough and Bridlington. The house served us well and had all the crockery and glasses you could need. The 2x bottles of prosecco were well received and the useful items of coffee, teabags, sugar and dish washer tablets. The lack of a communal toilet downstairs was a little inconvenient and the garden was not as neat as i had expected - but i know it was early in the season for gardening! (Please don't take this too personal Carl - your home is wonderful but i feel compelled to critique - since our aim was to have a garden party but rain decided otherwise!) The host was accessible to all queries and feedback. We recommend the Georgian Tea Rooms for Afternoon Tea in Bridlington Old Town and the Seabirds in Flamborough for Sunday Dinner. Both very reasonably priced and great quality food. Do we recommend - yes Will we be back - yes.

    Thankyou for your feedback Elizabeth its much appreciated and we are very happy that you enjoyed your stay at Routhorpe house. I'm a little confused in regards to you saying there was lack of a communal toilet on ground floor as there is a bathroom with a toilet, shower and hand wash basin on ground floor. I must explain the garden, the grass is kept short and tidy all year round even in the winter months and was cut in the morning before your arrival . There are areas in the garden that we let purposely grow wild in the borders to attract wildlife as we are in the countryside so its maybe these areas that wasnt as neat as you had expected, these areas are cut back just before coming into the warmer months after certain plants and wild flowers have bloomed and gone and is the advise from our gardener but nether the less these areas wouldn't have stopped you from having a garden party and yes it is still a little early in the year for major gardening works. Again thankyou for your kind words and your feedback and look forward to seeing you in the future. Property Owner

    .an exceptiomally luxurious, peaceful retreat for even the most stressed guests! Booked for a family break (and my 71st birthday!) it was the perfect base to relax, explore and just spend quality time together after a very long and difficult period of national crisis - Covid - lockdowns, overwork, illness and loss. Three family members are emergency front-line workers in desperate need of a break and the opportunity to count our blessings and refocus on the importance of family time... The house was amazing! Spacious, tasteful - offering every comfort and so well-equipped! The hot tub was a very welcome source of relaxation for the younger members who were impervious to the freezing temperatures! They were content to enjoy its warmth to wind down whilst making plans for their future as (newish) parents to adorable baby son, Jaxon. Wishes and dreams forged whilst observing a star-filled sky and sipping mulled wine...bliss! The kitchen was a big hit (with Officer Ben, who rather fancies himself as a chef when not chasing baddies! He is a great cook and makes wonderful cakes...he was mightily impressed by the equipment and layout - especially the snug area, so handy when cooking and entertaining. As for the 'light show' - baby Jaxon was mesmerised by the coloured, flashing lights...Disco Central - their own mundane kitchen 'spots' will seem very dull indeed when they return! Opportunities to visit wonderful York, Bridlington, Driffield and Beverley...all packed into a relatively short time - a week was not long enough! York was the best, as expected. The Shambles, Minster, restaurants...the warmth of the local people, so welcoming and kind. The weather was a little patchy with a number of downpours - but sunshine broke through most days and lifted the whole experience. It must be Heaven in warmer months when the extensive grounds can be fully used and appreciated. We had a couple of lovely dinners at the "The Star Inn" just a couple of miles away in nearby North Dalton...very reasonable prices, wholesome and plentiful food - a log fire and a duck pond! Must be so nice in the summer... Thank you made us so welcome, ensuring we were comfortable - and provided a wealth of advice and local info on where to go and how to get there! So all in all, a wonderful visit to a gorgeous house in a beautiful part of the country with something for everyone - restaurants, bars, shopping, history, warm and welcoming people...what's not to love. We thoroughly recommend it to anyone who appreciates and respects a lovely, top quality, well equipped home. We will certainly return when the weather is kinder - with no thermals required!

  • "We had lovely weather when we stayed, it would have been nice if there had been some chairs to sit on outside."

    The benches are not suitable for enjoying the sun. Also a very noisy road outside which is like that all day and most of the night. Apart from that the accommodation was well fitted out and the beds really comfy.

    So sorry you were not totally satisfised with your stay at Routhorpe house. We do work very hard and go the extra mile to try make sure our guests have the best experience during their stay. In regards to the outside chairs I take it you didn’t read the house manual where it states that the chairs are kept in the garage for safe keeping when not in use and that guests are welcome to take them for use in the garden. I would like to comment on the road noise, yes this can be a busy road especially at this time of year as it is the main road to our beautiful coast, when we renovated the property, we replaced the existing windows with new but added two different types of decibel reducing glazing to compensate for this which works very well and can not hear any road noise when in the property with the windows closed and is the first time this has been mentioned. There are fans in each bedroom for the hotter months if guests prefer to sleep with the windows closed. Property Owner

  • "Amazing property, facilities and the overall finish and feel of the property is simply the best place I’ve ever stayed in."

    Everything has been considered by the owners, from all the glassware and plates you could ever desire to the hot tub and garden games. The owners go the extra mile to make sure you have a wonderful stay, and all of the 9 other people that stayed there had nothing but good things to say. The only few tiny things that could improve the place would be an addition of a downstairs wc for people to use, rather than using the en-suite or heading upstairs, but in reality it isn’t an issue, just a point that could improve the comfort of guests who can’t walk so well. The other issue is road noise, because it sits just off a roundabout leading to a straight road, so motorbikes and cars really put their foot down and create loud noise, this isn’t noticeable inside as the double glazing is exceptional, but when in the garden it can be quite loud at times. Without doubt I’d recommend this property to family and friends and anyone who asks.
