  • "A beautifully decorated, cosy cottage in a lovely village and surroundings."

    The cottage was very clean and well-equipped and a nice welcome basket and flowers were left for our arrival. We would definitely stay here again.

  • "The perfect base for ramblers and explorers for short stays."

    The area is stunning and the house most comfortable for two or three nights. The WiFi is capped so long stays should note this. Otherwise you have nothing to lose - get it booked!

    Thank you for the kind words and so pleased you enjoyed our cottage. We have contacted the internet provider and the WiFi is no longer capped. The internet provider has not made us aware of this - so pleased you mentioned in your feedback Property Owner

  • "There was a child lock on the internet which meant we were unable to research pubs/restaurants in the area."

    Anything to do with alcohol was blocked. Very annoying.

  • "A beautiful cottage, very cosy and comfortable and very well furnished."

    A real home from home. A gorgeous log burner made it very cosy. The cottage is so well situated in this charming village, right next to the Wolds Way and with many walks from the cottage. Village pub serves excellent food and is very friendly with lots of outdoor seating. Pub is dog friendly but dogs are not allowed inside when food is being served.

The property

Ideally positioned in the quaint village of Goodmanham down a quiet country lane, 2 Old Hall is a charming Grade II listed cottage offering a truly tranquil base from which to explore the wonderful Yorkshire Wolds.

Adorned with many striking yet traditional features, this three-storey cottage is beautifully furnished throughout and perfect for a romantic getaway or for an adventurous family of four with their canine companions.

Spend your evenings snuggled up in the sitting room in front of the traditional woodburning stove that takes centre stage within the beautiful brick inglenook fireplace.

Enjoy an entertaining evening watching movies on the flat-screen TV, reading books from the bookcase, or enjoying a pint of the finest Yorkshire ale at the CAMRA award winning pub, Goodmanham Arms.

Joining this space is a quirky dining area, where you can indulge in many mouth-watering meals, lovingly prepared in the well-equipped kitchen by the chef of the group.

Take the staircase up to the first floor and be greeted by a fabulous double bedroom with a eccentric feature fireplace and pretty white iron-framed bed, as well as a light and contemporary family bathroom complete with a walk in shower.

A second staircase can be found leading up to a homely twin bedroom, beautifully decorated with cheerful floral wallpaper, attractive beamed ceilings and picturesque views of Goodmanham Church.

Enjoy lunch at family run tearoom The Fiddle Drill, just a short stroll away, before embarking on a day spent exploring the popular Wolds Way National Trail.

Or take a trip to the Yorkshire Coast, home to picturesque villages with dramatic landscapes, sea views and a variety of restaurants, pubs and cafes.

Resting a pleasant drive away on the banks of the River Ouse, the city of York awaits you with the 13th century remains of Clifford's Tower, the Gothic cathedral of York Minster and attractions including The York Dungeons, York Castle Museum and York Mansion House.

On return to the cottage, be sure to stop by the neighbouring town of Market Weighton, home to friendly local pubs, popular restaurants and a selection of stores selling all of the essentials.

Live many happy moments with your nearest and dearest on an escape to 2 Old Hall.

About the location


Market Weighton 2 miles; Beverley 10 miles; Driffield 12 miles.

The small Yorkshire Wolds village of Goodmanham lies two miles from the market town of Market Weighton, and dates back to Stone Age times. This sleepy little village of old stone cottages is one of the oldest religious sites in the country. The village once housed a Pagan temple, the site of which is now home to the current Norman-style church. There is also a village inn. The long distance Wolds Way Walk runs through the village, which is surrounded by rolling hills and pretty countryside. Close by, the thriving market town of Market Weighton with picturesque Victorian and Georgian streets has amenities including local inns, tea rooms, individual shops and a weekly farmers’ market. Goodmanham is well situated for many attractions, including Beverley Minster, Yorkshire Air Museum, Sledmere House and Skipsea castle. The historic City of York is only 18 miles away and well worth a visit.
