  • "The cottage is a nice cottage, but the cleanliness was very poor!"

    Very bad mould around the windows, dirty skirtings, debris under lounge chair and under the chair cushions. Attention to detail was average. The provisions were also very basic, had to buy salt & pepper. Only 2 wine glasses; one was badly chipped as were cups. Stayed in a nearby cottage and it was amazing in comparison - it was immaculate, excellent quality and very well equipped and only slightly more expensive.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your recent stay at Five Pond View Cottage. We appreciate your input and the opportunity to address your concerns. Firstly, we want to acknowledge our frequent correspondence with you throughout your stay, primarily discussing the potential extension of your visit. We regret that during our communications, the issues you mentioned regarding cleanliness and provisions were not raised. We value open communication with our guests, and had we been made aware of these concerns, we would have promptly taken action to rectify them. We apologise for the poor cleanliness standards you experienced, maintaining a clean environment is important to us, and we will address these deficiencies with our cleaning team. On inspection of the wine glasses and cups, we were not able to identify any that are chipped. However, we have now added additional white and red wine glasses and apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "A delightful cottage in a lovely setting in the village."

    It was spotless and had everything you could want . We had gorgeous weather so maybe a couple of comfier chairs for outside would be a bonus. Was a great base for seeing the surrounding areas. Beverley was great place to visit. Also came across Burnby Hall +gardens in Pocklington which was a delight. Ponds cottage was a great find.

  • "We arrived at 5 Pond View Cottages after a 6 hour journey to find we needed to remove dog mess and poo bags from the rear patio, clean the toilets and dishwasher, and vacuum throughout."

    The property had clearly not been cleaned since the last tenants. This was deeply disappointing, and cast a shadow on what was a much needed brief break. We chose not to raise the matter at the time as it was late and we were tired, and just wanted it dealt with promptly. We deserve an explanation, and wish to request a partial refund to compensate for time and money spent on cleaning the property, and for the distress caused.

    Thank you for the feedback, I am sorry to learn the cottage was not up to your standards. As we were not made aware of concerns at the time of your stay, we were not able to inspect the property or address your specific concerns. However, I can confirm that the cottage is thoroughly cleaned by a cleaning agency between each guest visit, which includes a full clean, changing of bedding and linens, and an inspection of the outside areas. In the event of any areas being missed, I do apologise and I shall pass your comments onto the cleaning agency. Thank you for your feedback and I hope you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Great little cottage for 3 people."

    Although its not large, its really well equipped. Its also really warm and cosy despite the chilly January weather. The owner was helpful and friendly and quick to respond when I had a question. Great location for visiting our son at Hull university (20-30 mins drive) and some nice walks locally. Can also recommend the pub in the village for dinner.

  • "Better equipment/ crockery in the kitchen eg."

    Salad bowl, fruit bowl, larger breakfast bowls, full size cafetiere, more coffee mugs and serving bowls. The grill on the cooker was not working properly. Luckily the weather was mild but the heating did not come on in the morning in the bedrooms or bathroom where it was chilly. Clearer instructions for using the large TV. Everything else was very good.

    Thank you for your feedback, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay at Five Pond View Cottage. Regarding the kitchen equipment, the property sleeps three people and only recently had a 16 piece dining set added to the current equipment in place. However, I have now also added a fruit bowl and additional full size cafetiere. Please note, for the heating, the thermostat is left out so that the temperature or timings can be set to a level which you find comfortable, the instructions are within the welcome pack. Thanks you once again for your feedback. Property Owner

    Property location is ideal for a short walk to the Triton Inn which serves superb food (booking recommended though as very popular and therefore busy). Thank you for a lovely stay once again. See you again in the Spring :) Cathy & Kevin - Oct 2022

    The food in the Fox & Coney in South Cave was really good quality and highly recommended. The cottage is really comfortable, great warmth from the fire. A good strong water flow in the shower, and a very high quality interior design. A beautiful big kitchen and sweet little courtyard style garden. Within 10 seconds walk you are on the village duck pond and there are nice doggy walks to be had in the surrounding area. We loved it and wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again. Thank you.

  • "Overall we had no real issues except with the gas fire on some very cold nights and these seemed to be connected to the actual gas or electricity supply when the pilot light just ceased; also the hot water in the shower was a little erratic and on two occasions it went from stable to very very hot almost to scolding heat."

    The only other observation to make is that the stairs are very steep however, that all said we enjoyed the property and its location very much.

    Hi Martin, We are glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your feedback. Apologies for the issue you had with the fire, after our correspondence we had assumed that all was well. However, the fire since stopped working and as a a result the appliance has been serviced and cleaned by an engineer which has rectified the issue with the pilot light.

  • "A beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable cottage, slightly away from the more well known tourist spots, which is very well equipped and tastefully decorated to the highest of standards."

    The kitchen is large and impressive and there are charming outside seating areas to both front and rear. The owners are very friendly and respond very quickly to any queries guests might have. Brantingham is a tranquil and picturesque enclave, yet only a stone's throw from the M62 motorway, which merges with the A63 into Hull, just a few miles away. There is also a direct rail link into Hull from nearby Brough. The local pub, The Triton, is known for serving excellent meals and is exceptionally popular for Sunday lunches. For anyone who has not visited the area before I would recommend a trip to the nearby town of Beverley, administrative capital of East Yorkshire. It has a splendid minster church of cathedral proportions, is full of charming cafés and antique shops and has a lively market on Saturdays. It also has a wonderful old pub, the White Horse (locally known as 'Nellie's'), which is frozen in time. It's a real drinkers pub (no food) with a labyrinth of rooms each with its own fireplace - and is still lit by gas! All in all, a wonderful place for a self-catering stay.

    Thank you for your kind and very detailed feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and do hope to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

    Very well equipped and comfortable. The building work nearby is still ongoing so parking at the property was a little difficult but once we unloaded we used the nearby village hall facilities which was much easier. The neighbours and other villagers could not have been more friendly or helpful. Lovely walks from the village and nearby. We found some very pretty villages and nearby market towns to visit.

    The weather was amazing so we sat outside a lot of the time and although we didn’t use it, there was a BBQ. The Triton Inn pub was about 1 minutes walk and the food was amazing. The cottage had everything we needed and was beautifully furnished. The owners text us during the day to let us know there was a parasol in the outhouse which was amazing as the heatwave was at its peak. The pond located at the front is beautiful and has benches to peacefully sit. We would definitely stay again and recommend this beautiful cottage.

  • "The cottage is situated in a tranquil, quiet village in the middle of the countryside, however main roads are very accessible and it doesn't take long to drive to the lovely market town of Beverley if you want to do some shopping."

    The cottage has all the facilities you could require. The stairs are a little steep but to be expected as it is a true cottage. If you are looking for a peaceful retreat where you only hear horses neigh in the field across the road, the birds singing and the occasional quack from the ducks in the nearby pond, this is the place to go. My hubby & I had a lovely break away from everything for 4 days and loved it. Only downside was that we didn't manage to visit the village pub/restaurant not knowing that it is closed on a Monday & Tuesday .. never mind, always next time :)

The property

Nestled at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds and resting within the quaint village of Brantingham, is this inviting abode, 5 Pond View Cottages.

While boasting a beautiful finish throughout, with views of the village green and duck pond, this terraced cottage has certainly retained its warm, country-style ambiance, making a superb base for couples or small families looking to explore the area.

Enter directly into the sitting room, offering ample seating from which you can kick back and unwind before the electric stove, with a flat screen TV for entertainment.

Fulfilling your culinary requirements is this well-equipped kitchen, which comes with all the necessities for a week long break, including a gas range cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer and even a washer/dryer if you adventures take off on a muddier route.

Head upstairs to find the bedrooms, comprised of a king-size and single room, uplifted by bright colour tones and crisp bed linen.

A refreshing bathroom completes the interior, with a lush roll-top bath where you can recover after a day of walking, along with a walk-in shower cubicle, wash basin and WC.

Spend a moment or two in the south-facing patio, listening to the birdsong with your morning cup of coffee in hand, the ultimate way to achieve true tranquility.

The heartbeat of the village is most certainly the contemporary country pub, which is located just a few yards away; kick back and relax with some locally sourced seasonal food, cooked to perfection.

For those searching for a taste of adventure, there are plenty of scenic walks from the doorstep, as well as several enjoyable cycle routes across the Yorkshire Wolds.

For a day out, visit one of the many market towns in the area, including Market Weighton and Beverley, whilst good road links take you to the traditional seaside town of Hornsea and to York, where you can visit the National Railway Museum, York Minster, or simply enjoy a walk around the perimeter walls.

Within easy reach of numerous attractions, 5 Pond View Cottages is a delightful getaway for an adventure with your loved ones.
