  • "Wonderful week at Lavender Cottage."

    The property was really clean and comfortable and completely as described - not always the case we have found over the years. The garden was fabulous- very much enjoyed by our Labrador and great to be able to let him wander in and out. We felt that this really was a dog friendly cottage - secure garden, tiled floors, no unnecessary clutter. We have stayed elsewhere with the dog only to find the garden wasn’t secure or it was filled with ornaments just waiting for that wagging tail!! Everything worked and the WiFi was good and quick. The owners were very friendly but we had complete privacy. We have travelled to Yorkshire many times but never to the Wolds and we loved the area. Loads to do and Beverley was great - lots to see and incredibly friendly with lots of dog- friendly options. The local town is only down the road so whilst this is in a very quiet countryside location nothing is very far away. We can’t recommend this cottage and the area highly enough and will definitely be back.

  • "We had a lovely Easter week at Lavender Cottage."

    The main plus for us was the size of the garden and how secure it was. Even our mischevious frenchie couldn't find a way to escape so was happy to leave the french doors open from the living room for them to roam freely. Both our dogs very much enjoyed and made most of the big garden all week and our kids loved it too. The cottage was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. The only thing we would have liked, our personal preference really would have been a comfy sofa for us all to cuddle upto on an evening. As comfy as the chairs and sofa was, they weren't relaxing enough where you could really unwind, spread out and lay about on whilst watching a movie as a family. Other than that we loved it!

    If you enjoy walking - you can walk into Market Weighton. My wife and daughter loved the pottery shop in the town as well. Thanks very much!

  • "The property is in such a peaceful location."

    Set off a quiet country road with its own gated entrance with private parking right outside the property. The garden is huge, great for dogs to explore. The property is all on the ground floor and is immaculately clean and furnished to a high standard. The living room is a good size with a lovely log burner. Wifi worked well during our stay as we brought our firestick to stream Netflix. The living room has a lovely patio door with views of the beautiful garden. The bathroom was gorgeous with a powerful shower and stylish bath. The main bedroom was on the small side but had adequate storage. The second bedroom was a decent size though. Its all open plan ie. the kitchen/dining room and living room. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the owners live next door and were so friendly and helpful but left you to your privacy. If you had any issues or requests they were quick to respond and were very accomodating. They were really welcoming and provided a beautiful hamper on arrival. I would not hesitate to stay at this beautiful cottage again and would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful break away in the Yorkshire Countryside. A car is essential here really as there didn't appear to be a supermarket in walking distance. The nearest being a short drive. Thank you for your hospitality Nicky, both you and your husband were excellent hosts and we had a memorable holiday at your beautiful cottage.

  • "What a beautiful little cottage!"

    It has everything you need and more. Cleaned and presented to the highest standard and very comfortable. The garden is bigger than you’d expect and is fully secure so you can let your dog roam free. Riley ( the border collie) has a super power for finding balls and this garden was his playground. 8 balls he found in total and was such a happy boy with all the outdoor space and wildlife. Hope the next pup that visits enjoys finding them also. The welcome basket was a beautiful gesture from the owners and Riley enjoyed his treats too. The area is beautiful, no sound or light pollution so you can relax in peace, with plenty of local walks if you wish to explore the immediate area. Thank you to Nicky and Gary for wonderful stay. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • "This cottage is absolutely beautiful, the pictures don’t show this place off to its full potential."

    We were absolutely delighted when we opened the front door & saw what was going to be our home for the week. ( owners left the most amazing welcome hamper too best we have ever had too so Thankyou to the owners for that.) Now for us personally there are 3 “must haves” that we need & look for when choosing a property to visit. First : log burner :- lavender cottage has a fantastic log burner, the owners even left some firewood to get us going which meant we could enjoy the fire immediately ✔️ Second : A secure garden ( as we have 2 little dogs ) the garden was bigger than I expected, it was 100% secure & is so even for the tiniest of dogs , there is no escaping from this garden at all.✔️ Now last but not least on our must haves is WIFI. Yes I know most people try to switch off when they go away, but for us wifi is important as we have a fire stick & use this for watching films & tv. We also both have our own businesses so switching off completely is a no no. sometimes we have to work a little bit too & with remote locations wifi is needed. ✔️ Ok so our visit to Lavender Cottage was incredible & exactly what we wanted from our stay. Beds very comfy ✔️ Bath ✔️ Shower ✔️ Log burner ✔️ Secure garden ✔️ Wifi ✔️ Towels & bedlinen provided ✔️ Welcome hamper ✔️ & so much more. ✔️ Lavender Cottage is in a great location , we had some amazing dog walks & saw so many fabulous places. Although set in a remote location, the shops are only a ten min drive away where you can get absolutely everything you may need. Specific Feedback now for the Garden for dog owners:- where do we start here, well our two dogs Poppy & Daisy absolutely loved the garden, they spent many many hours morning noon & night running around the flower beds , in & out of the small trees, chasing each other like 2 super excited puppy dogs. We got lots of pics & videos of them playing it will be something I cherish forever.

  • "This booking was one of those serendipitous finds where it turns out to be SO much better than you even expected!"

    And one you fear advertising it as such in case you cannot get booked in to return! Yes, it was THAT good. The location of the cottage is of the very highest order- right in the country but near enough to towns with full facilities. If peace, silence and tranquility are your bag then this is the place for you. To sit in that huge garden with literally only the noise of the birds and buzzing bees was such an escape from our suburban normailty. When you arrive each time after a visit out and open the car door to be greeted by that quiet and sense of sheer peace really drew a sigh of relief and contentment. In all my cottage visits I have never experienced one as peaceful as this..its like the real world is miles and miles away. So much so that we never even had the tv on, a radio on, or listened to the news! Why spoil this haven of calm? To cap it all, the weather was beautiful the whole week and our outside visits so enjoyable. In truth both of us were more than happy when we got back to the cottage though lol. The owner Nicki is SO nice to talk to...just so very considerate and concerned only for your enjoyment. But the cottage itself I cannot speak highly enough of- you just have to go to see what I mean, photos never do places like this any justice. So yes, I fully recommend it , and yes, we will surely be back. This should be the very template of excellence that a country cottage could aspire to. Thank you Nicky and Gary for an absolutely tremendous holiday- and to you Sykes for having this one on your list

    The cottage was practical and comfortable with high quality fittings and furnishings. The patio doors led straight into the beautiful secure garden with no steps which was great for the dog who could then amble about at his leisure. We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage (apart from the fact that it might be fully booked when we wish to stay again!). A really comfortable stay in a great location. Thank you

    We all loved the huge garden including the bird feeders which were a pleasure to sit and watch all day, having been filled ready for our arrival. The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise too, and our children, and me, loved carving the pumpkins, which were also provided by the hosts. On arrival there was an issue with the Wifi connection, however this was very quickly resolved by the hosts and no further problems were experienced. A short ride down the lane takes you into Market Weighton where there is a large Tesco as well as takeaways and shops. Such a lovely part of the country to visit with lots of walks and wildlife as well as peace and quiet to enjoy.

Boasting a rural position amidst the glorious landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, a short distance from the bustling town of Market Weighton is this elegantly-appointed accommodation, Lavender Cottage.

This all-ground-floor cottage enjoys a contemporary interior design, carefully selected furnishings and everything you could possibly need to enjoy a week-long break to this stunning part of Yorkshire.

Please note this property is adults only.

After soaking up the surroundings, enter the property and be welcomed by the stylish kitchen, where the designated chef of the group will be delighted by the quality appliances that awaits, inviting them in to rustle up a home-cooked meal.

Beyond here is the sitting room, boasting patio doors which filter in a refreshing breeze into the space during the summer months, or the woodburning stove offers warmth during the chillier evenings.

After an action-packed afternoon, you will be delighted to find a freestanding, roll-top bath in the stylish bathroom, allowing you to truly unwind before you head to bed.

Continuing to impress are the two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, each offering plenty of storage for your personal belongings.

During a balmy day, spend a moment or two within the rear garden where your canine companion is free to roam as you enjoy your tranquil settings with a cup of tea in hand and as the night draws closer, take advantage of their being no light pollution and enjoy stargazing.

Find all of your amenities within the nearby town of Beverley which is celebrated for its wonderful Wednesday and Saturday market and an abundance of pubs, eateries and shops.

During your stay at Lavender Cottage, look forward to discovering the Yorkshire Wolds Way national trail or bring your bike along to cycle the route 66 cycle network that passes through Market Weighton.

You could time your visit to watch Kiplingcotes Derby, England’s oldest horse race which has been run every year since 1519 crossing farm lanes, tracks and public roads in The Yorkshire Wolds.

Alternatively, venture slightly further afield to the walled city of York, where you can step back in time and explore the timber-framed houses and traditional shopfronts before visiting one of the largest cathedrals in Northern Europe, York Minster.

Lavender Cottage promises to be a refreshing getaway.
