  • "I had to delay my trip by one day because of storm Babet, and Lynne was very helpful about the change."

    Cosy Corner lived up to its name, was well equipped for cooking, and the new bed was very comfortable. (Some stays in holiday lets have been spoiled by saggy mattresses.) Another plus was the presence of hooks on the bathroom door; this may sound silly, but many holiday lets have nowhere to hang a dressing gown or toilet bag. Small things can make a big difference! My only quibble was that I found it difficult to unlock the door from the inside. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

    It was lovely to meet you Jill and a pleasure to host you. I did follow up your little issue with the door by calling out a locksmith who advised me the lock is absolutely fine, what you need to do is gently pull the handle up and turn the key to lock the door. Hope you had a good journey going home Best wishes Lynne Property Owner

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, such a convenient and quiet location and accommodation very spacious, comfortable, warm and light."

    Although the owners live next door it is still very private. Well equipped kitchen for making own meals but also access to many cafes in the local area. So nice to have comfortable, and very clean, furniture for relaxing in the evening too. We used public transport to get there and to get around, very well serviced area.

    Thank you for being the perfect guests x Property Owner

  • "Cosy Corner Cottage 5 stars - friendly and welcoming owners."

    The cottage had everything we needed, was clean and as its name says, "Cosy". We've had a very enjoyable week and for us, recommend Cosy Corner Cottage - many thanks to Lynne and Barry. Sykes - score reduced to their issues with the booking system not accepting my Credit Card payment on both the initial deposit as well as attempting to reduce the balance outstanding (the same card used on many, many occasions before with Sykes, and at all times being accepted by every other business I used) - Sykes reply being "We are also experiencing technical difficulties with our online system when guests are attempting to make a payment towards their booking. Our technical team are currently looking in to this, however we are unsure of when this will be resolved.". In the end I ended up paying online by my Debit Card, which was accepted, without issue. For the many number of years that we've been using Sykes, this is totally unacceptable.

    Lovely to meet you and a pleasure to host you. Thank you for choosing Cosy Corner. Best wishes Lynne Property Owner

  • "We have just returned from a weeks stay at Cosy Corner having had such an enjoyable holiday at this home."

    It is a lovely, cosy and comfortable holiday home, having everything we could possibly have wanted or needed during our stay. The home is ideally situated in the pretty and quaint village of Haxby which we enjoyed having a stroll around in the evenings. It was the perfect base for us to visit both family and friends and was only a short bus ride into the beautiful city of York. At arriving at Cosy Cottage there was a little welcome pack of tea, coffee and biscuits which was greatly appreciated. Lyn and Barry were so kind and welcoming and couldn’t do enough for us. Thank you both for our wonderful stay in your home. We can’t wait to come back!

    It was a pleasure to have you both stay, you both were the perfect guests and look forward to seeing you both in the future. Property Owner

  • "Small but comfortable cottage and very clean."

    We ate in a bit and there were a few kitchen accessories we could have done with, like scissors, a gravy boat. Also larger bin liners for the kitchen bin are needed. Good location, easy to walk to the village and excellent bus service into York.

    Thank you for your feedback. If you had made me aware during your stay that you were not happy with things, I would have been more than happy to assist with only being next door and a call or text away. The scissors were in the middle cutlery drawer. Gravy boat is on the top shelf of the cupboard along with several other items. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was in a quiet area, perfect for visiting the City of York and surrounding area."

    However, we were extremely dissappointed to find that there were no hand wash/gel or antibacterial spray, especially given the current pandemic. The property is looking tired, especially carpets. We thought the throws on the sofa and chair were in our opinion neither clean or hygienic. The utensils, or should say the lack of, consisted of 3 dinner and side plates, two bowls and a distinct lack of cutlery. The Wi-Fi in the home didn't extend to the bedroom and the freezer was situated on the floor of a cupboard, which would be very difficult for a disabled person to access. The pillows and cushion inners desperately need replacing. Having used Sykes Cottages many times and this is the first time we have made a complaint about a property.

    1/ Had Mr Frostwick spoken to me and given me the opportunity to put right any justified faults /complaints at the time of his stay, in Cosy Corner, I would have done so immediately, but he failed to tell me. Mr Frostwick had lots of opportunity to either speak to me personally, text me or call me, infact Mr Frostwick actually called to see me to ask if i had a hairdryer for his partner to use, to which i did loan him my own personal hair dryer for the week, as it tells you on the Sykes site exactly what is included which does not include a hairdryer , but i was more than happy to lend him mine. 2/ Mr Frostwick mentions certain things in the property would not be suitable for a disabled person: this is probably because my property is not a disable property hence it is not listed as such and I am sure Sykes Cottages could have recommended a lovely disable property if this is what he requires. 3/ the lack of cutlery: there is sufficient cutlery in the property to which i sent photos off to both Sykes and Mr Frostwick. 4/WIFI Mr Frostwick says this does not extend to the bedroom: anyone who has WIFI will be aware that on occasions WIFI does not always run as fast as one would like, the WIFI was running great in the lounge and kitchen and i did apologise to Mr Frostwick for this,but it was beyond my control. 5/All pillows have now been replaced and if i had been given the opportunity of Mr Frostwicks stay then i would have rectified this immediately. 6/ Re the property looking tired: i did email Mr Frostwick after his stay to give me his definition of how and where Cosy Corner is looking tired, but i had no response to this.: As we were getting to the end of the season clearly we were ready to refresh paint work and had plans to remove all carpets and replace with a good quality laminate flooring for the comfort of gusts. 7/ Re the lack of antibacterial gel/hand wash: as i had been instructed by Sykes and quite rightly so too to reduce cross infection i removed this along with DVDd and books etc, because i am allergic to gels, i did not want to supply a product (the same goes with nuts etc) which may cause harm to another and most people carry their own personal gels/antibacterial wash. Usually i do supply a very good brand of hand wash in the shower room for my guests and there was a full bottle of fairy liquid supplied in the kitchen, anyone that is aware, fairy liquid is very good for hand washing and killing germs. Any genuine complaint Mr Frostwick had would have been put to good immediately had he given me the opportunity when I saw him on a couple of occasions and asked him if everything was ok for him, he smiled and said yes it was. Anyone looking at all my reviews for Cosy Corner will see just how many guests have been happy with Cosy Corner and have returned. To any future guest I ask you please give me your findings of anything you are not happy with as i will be more than happy to put it right given the soonest opportunity as I want my guests to feel comfortable and happy.

  • "Thank you for giving me the chance to give you feedback on Cosy Corner."

    Weather wise the week was the worst we have ever had continual rain all day every day. I can honestly say there is no better place to stay even in bad weather. York is marvellous with plenty of visitors places undercover. The buses into town are round the corner and the park and rides are a very short drive. Now the icing on the cake is Cosy Corner. We are 76 years old and have stayed in many cottages but this is the best we have ever had. It was warm and well furnished and equipped with everything we needed even shower robes. But the decor was really spot on with colour coordinated lounge and bedroom finished to an exceptionally high standard. Well done Lynne and thank you for a lovely holiday in your super Cosy Corner

    Could only be improved by maybe having a hook to hang clothes in the bathroom, and a small amount if washing powder, as having travelled from Spain we didn't want to buy a large box. Luckily, my Aunt was able to supply some!! Would definitely recommend.

The property

Lovely cottage attached to the owner's home within walking distance of Haxby's shops and pubs, and a short drive or bus journey to York centre and its many attractions.

In a quiet setting, the property has been tastefully furnished to provide a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Set across a single storey you will arrive at a well-equipped kitchen layered with cream units and everything you need to feel right at home.

The cosy lounge/diner is beautifully presented sharing space with sumptuous sofas, and a calming teal colour scheme, further elevated by a feature wall.

Enjoy the warmth from the electric fire as you settle down for some well-deserved downtime in the evening.

Afterwards, cosy up in the king size bedroom, a soothing place to relax, with doors opening up to the outside, drawing in the sunshine as the next day begins.

Getting ready in the morning will be of ease with a contemporary shower room on hand, perfected to that of a hotel standard.

Outdoors, make use of the beautiful shared patio and gas barbecue, a great excuse to gather your loved ones for a social evening in this fabulous destination.

The cottage is also ideally situated to head north and enjoy the delights of The north York moors or east to the coast.

The centre of York is just 4 miles from the property; this remarkable city is bursting with striking architecture and quaint cobbled streets hosting charming shops, pubs and cafés.

There is so much to appreciate with a number of museums, York races and the well-known Jorvik Viking Centre.

For a dose of fresh country air, both the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors National Parks are easily reachable and offer some astounding scenery with a network of idyllic walking and cycling paths. A lovely cottage for exploring the area any time of the year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
