  • "This is a lovely place & we had a fabulous catch up there."

    We will hopefully be returning. Pro's: location - lovely & quiet. Spacious, clean and plenty of household items to cook / clean with. Hot tub was a The Shepherds hut is cute & the rabbits are fun to watch. Cons: Signposting to the driveway from the busy dual carriageway massively needs attention. There were balloons there but the trees/hedges need trimming & a larger sign is needed to make the turn more viable. We stayed on the windiest weekend for a while meaning the water in the hot tub was constantly getting cooled - so it struggled to maintain temperature. An extension to the french providing a wind block would be very welcomed. Other places we stayed had a welcome pack with guides, instructions etc in there. I have only just found the Welcome email in my spam folder - so we didn't know about the bed linen instructions. The above is for feedback only to make the cottage amazing - we would return.

  • "Had a wonderful stay at Wayside Cottage."

    We wanted to get the family together for a relaxing holiday and some sightseeing and Wayside ticked all the boxes. It’s spacious and has the added bonus of a ground floor bedroom with bathroom next to it so was ideal for my daughter, son in law and their 3 year old. The Hot tub was used every evening by three of our group and was definitely a hit and the towels a nice touch. It’s all in the description and it didn’t disappoint. Even the sideboard drawer in the dining room had a nice selection of leaflets / things to do etc. Finally a big thank you to the owner for spotting the set of keys that got left behind and forwarding them on. Would definitely recommend.

    Fantastic facilities, everything you need. I’ve knocked my review down by one point because the beds are described as 1x super King and 2 x King, whereas they are actually 1x king and 2x double, so not quite as described & not what we were expecting. However, that did not distract from the beautiful setting and our fab stay. Excellent place to stay and fantastic service support from Mike, the owner.

    The facilities were excellent, clean and tidy and we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the Hot Tub and having the added bonus of Netflix. The parking was fantastic and location really good for going places like York and Beverley and National Trusts. Pocklington was nice and near and had plenty of Eateries/Takeout's.

    Just short of perfect, however as we were a party of all adults there being only one shower despite having a second bathroom/en suite was a bit of a problem and time consuming in a morning.

We stripped beds and placed all used towels in bathroom as we have been instructed to in previous rented holiday cottages. Despite the above we had a fantastic time and the hot tub was brilliant.

    Cottage and hot tub were lovely. However a few essentials were missing such as dishwasher tablets, cooking utensils(ladles),cork screw. Was also surprised that there were no plastic Glasses for the hot tub. Cups and crockery could also do with an overhaul.The bath in the en-suite would benefit from having the taps changed to a shower mixer.

There’s plenty to do and see around the area but you do need a car as there is nothing in walking distance other than one pub and a small village shop. Also the cottage is described as being modern.

    It was also extremely clean (something that is even more important during these COVID-19 times). Added to this, the hot-tub was a welcome treat at the end of the day. It is in an ideal location for exploring Yorkshire – York is a dozen miles away, Bridlington 30 miles away, and Scarborough, 40. The property is on a main road, although it is shielded from much of the noise by a surrounding of trees, which ensures its complete privacy. Hayton itself is small and has just a single store/post office (at the garage), whilst the Plough Inn, just across the road, has a Chinese restaurant (and operates a take-away service). The nearest supermarkets are at Pocklington (west) and Market Weighton (to the east). The village is served by an hourly bus service to York, and to Beverley/Hull. We have no hesitation in recommending Wayside Cottage, and would like to add our thanks to the owner, Mike, for his hospitality.

Thank you to the owners for the fresh milk and cakes! The hot tub was the main reason we chose the house and we weren't disappointed. We arrived on a weekend of stormy weather but still managed to get in the tub which is quite open but in normal weather would be sheltered by fence and trees. We had a nice meal in the Chinese restaurant at the Pub 5 minutes walk away, they advertise a take away service but they said they had stopped doing it on a weekend. The house is only a short drive to Pocklington which is worth a visit and has a selection of places to eat, drink and get supplies, you can walk to the garage though if you want a newspaper or supplies. The only down side to the stay for us was its location next to a busy road.

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.
