  • “We had a great week at Wayside Cottage.”

    Mike was a perfect host, answering any queries we had. We loved seeing the chickens, rabbits and were lucky to stay just after the piglets were born. Evenings in the hot tub finished off a each day brilliantly. Would highly recommend.

The property

Resting in the pretty rural village of Hayton, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, is this superb cottage.

Fully furnished and renovated to a high-standard, this property has an exceptional modern design, with a light decor and an abundance of natural light flooding the rooms.

Entering the property, you will be greeted to a utility area, where you can kick off your coats and boots, before entering the spacious open-plan kitchen/diner.

Boasting quality white fitted units and sleek worktops, this kitchen provides a range of contemporary appliances so you can cook up a delicious evening meal, whilst the breakfast bar is convenient for enjoying a hearty breakfast whilst planning the day's events.

Walk through to the large sitting room and have a choice of two large sofas to curl up on and unwind into the evening enjoying quality family time together.

Upstairs also hosts a super-king-size bedroom, with zip and link features so whatever your group size there will be something accommodate your needs.

Discover the family bathroom on this floor, with an elegant bath and shower over, so you can decide how best to prepare for your day.

Follow the steps up to the first floor, offering a further two king-size bedrooms, all of which have a range of modern furnishings for storage purposes, with one hosting an en-suite bathroom room.

Step out to the rear enclosed garden with lawn and patio areas, where you can sit in the evening sun with a refreshing beverage, or take advantage of the provided hot tub and let those bubbling jets work their magic on your aching muscles from the previous days.

The nearby market town of Pocklington is the perfect choice for sampling pubs and restaurants with fine food options using local produce.

Discover the picturesque Burnby Hall Gardens which gives ample walking opportunities around two lakes.

The Acorn Gallery is an exceptional base for a spot of culture with its modern art displays, whilst the Church of All Saints provides that piece of history.

About the location


York 13 miles.

The pretty little market town of Pocklington nestles at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds in the Vale of York. It is perhaps best known for Burnby Hall Gardens - 8 acres of gloriously beautiful gardens with two large lakes which are home to the National Collection of water lilies. There are several world famous attractions nearby - majestic Castle Howard, beautiful Sledmere House, and of course the historic city of York. The town boasts a leisure centre offering a wide range of sports, including swimming, a Civic Centre and the Pocklington Arts Centre, which shows various films and stages live shows throughout the year. Pocklington is also home to Madhyamaka Kadampa Meditation Centre, known worldwide for its meditation courses and retreats, plus the KP Golf Club is situated approx. 1 mile away and offers wedding and other event facilities, a stylish bar and a restaurant, as well as an 18 hole championship golf course. Just a few miles away is the village of Warter, which is where David Hockney produced his 'Bigger Trees Near Warter' painting. Nearby are various cycle ways including the North Sea Cycle Route and walkers will love either the long distance walks along the Wolds Way or one of the many more circular walks in the area for all abilities. For those who enjoy touring by car, Pocklington forms part of the Pocklington Round, a lovely scenic drive which takes in some of the area’s prettiest villages.
