  • "Really enjoyed our stay at Craven Cottage it was lovely."

    The cottage was cosy and clean. The only thing I would recommend is something putting down at the side for car’s to park as it was a nightmare on the grass verge. Over all we would defiantly recommend.

  • "Craven Cottage is cosy and comfortable and full of character, atmosphere and original features."

    It's well-equipped and had everything we needed and we particularly enjoyed the books and games and jigsaws. The fairy lights on the dining room ceiling are such a magical feature. There's plenty of hot water and the beds and sofas are comfy and we loved the quaint old fashioned furniture such as the pews in the dining room and having a cosy fire in the wood burner. The huge garden is enchanting and bursting with Nature! It was wonderful to see so many Red Admirals plus rabbits, pheasants and partridges and at night time hear the hooting owls. As we all live in a busy town centre area, the peacefulness was such a treat and so relaxing. The charming village is perfectly placed for the coast and many visitor attractions. We'd recommend 'The Deep', Burton Agnes Hall and the seal colony at Flamborough. We'd like to thank the owners for sharing their lovely cottage and thanks too for the tempting welcome tray. Much appreciated!

  • "Disappointed there was no comfort in the lounge and dining area."

    The shower overflowed because the drain was not fit for purpose. Could not get the hob to work. Needs a complete refurbishment and then it would be a lovely cottage again.

    We are always looking to make improvements so thanks for your feedback. However, please bear in mind it is a large, traditional, country cottage with a large garden… that works out cheaper than the well known budget hotel chain in the middle of Bridlington. The majority of our guests are really happy with the standard and comfort, so a refurb seems unnecessary and would result in a big increase in rent. Also, the hob is an induction hob so you need to put a pan on it before it heats up. Property Owner

  • "Pretty from the outside but lacks comfort inside."

    Pews instead of dining chairs were really hard to sit on and we didn't linger over meals as a result which was a shame. The mattresses were hard and uncomfortable to sleep on and we got stiff backs as a result. The sofas were not comfortable and a couple of extra easy chairs would have been good - we ended up bringing the bedroom chairs downstairs. The microwave was hopeless and the kitchen cupboards full of random utensils etc meaning there was nowhere to store our food. It rained all week so we found it difficult to dry clothes after using the washing machine - a tumble drier is needed. The space was good for 6 people, but I was disappointed it wasn't more homely and relaxing, the place needs a bit of love and money spent on it.

    Thank you for your feedback. We will look into getting some cushions for the pews as guests usually love the character of them. The beds and sofas are a good quality, so we’re surprised you found them uncomfortable. The microwave is brand new. There is plenty of spare cupboard space with extra in the utility so storage shouldn’t have been an issue. Please bear in mind the property is a characterful country cottage, but we take your feedback on board. Thanks. Property Owner

  • "The second time we've rented this house."

    There's always a worry that when you return somewhere it won't live up to expectation but this time it was even better. Beautiful house surrounded by beautiful gardens and lovely runs to neighbouring villages. A "grown ups" house but with lots of little buts for the kids to do too. We will be back.

  • "After reading all the positive reviews on Craven cottage it seemed ideal for our week break with our family and grandchildren."

    We wanted somewhere quiet with a large safe garden for the children to play / explore and easy access to nearby places. It surpassed all our needs and expectations and we would recommend it highly. Don't worry about traffic noise as it doesn't exist and during the night the only sound you are likely to hear is from a nearby owl. For anyone with a love for wildlife in the garden you won't be disappointed either. Take some bird seed for the feeders and relax on the patio whilst a variety of birds entertain you. Look out for the rabbits, visiting pheasant and cheeky squirrels who mop up any food the birds drop. If you are lucky you may even see deer. We were often late in setting off for a day trip with so much happening in the garden! Yes, a beautiful relaxing place for sure

    It had all the facilities that you need on a holiday. Plenty of room to move around in. It was really beautiful setting and quiet. We had a lot of birds, rabbits and the occasional pheasant in the garden while eating breakfast, it was great.

  • "This cottage is a wonderful location and place to stay."

    It’s within easy reach to the coast and other interesting places such as Beverley. It’s also a great place if you enjoy wildlife, starting in the garden where there is alot of bird activity (especially if you fill up the bird feeders). Top hill Low Nature reserve nearby was fantastic where we watched a kingfisher fishing. RSPB Bempton Cliffs was also fascinating. Local walks were good too. When holidaying in February it’s always a bit of a worry that the house is warm. However there is no worry with Craven Cottage; the warmth was obvious as soon as we entered and stayed beautifully warm throughout our stay. We turned the thermostat down at night and when we went out for the day but it still was cosy. The wood burning stove was an added bonus too, but not essential for comfort. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped with a luxury coffee maker. We would love to return sometime as a week is not long enough and maybe bring bikes as the roads are very quiet and flat.

Interesting area, Flamborough Head is a must, we watched a large colony of seals near the lighthouse.

  • "Firstly, The cottage is in a beautiful, idyllic setting."

    The first thing we noticed was the peace and quiet and on entering through the side gate the garden which is a “wow”. Craven cottage itself is a gorgeous, big, yet cosy cottage. You have everything you need here. The kitchen wants for nothing just yourself and your food, the unique dining room with church pews and lovely lighting, the comfy sofas, the log fire, the comfiest beds, pillows, duvets sets you up for a deep sleep. If you can’t sleep, go outside or just look through the window at the array of stars, a magnificent sight, listen to the wildlife. We spent a lot of the time in the garden and were amazed to be visited twice by a family of deer, rabbits and their babies and too many species of birds to mention all munching on the huge fruit trees. The pears are delicious! We visited a few places like Bridlington and Beverley etc but were drawn back to spend time in and out of the cottage. There’s lots of walks near the cottage and just down the lane is the river.. I also have to add that the owners of the cottage are very helpful if you are needing any information.. we will definitely be returning!

    The cottage was really peaceful - lovely garden - even deer and rabbits coming in to eat the fallen fruit. Unless you're a '4 in a bed winner', the cottage had everything we needed and v. cosy with the woodburner. 1 caution to watch out for the d/stairs shower which fills / overflows quite quickly but overall a fab place:)

    Thank you for your feedback – we're glad you enjoyed your stay! Apologies for any inconvenience the shower caused, we've had the external drain cleared so the shower is draining properly now. Thanks for letting us know. Property Owner
