  • “If you are considering a stay at 'Acorn Cottage' don't think any further.”

    .... just book it quickly! It was 5 star all the way. The most amazing cottage we've stayed in. Walking in was an 'Oooooh!' and the quality welcome pack was another 'Ooooh!' To say the place was spotless, is an understatement, and the kitchen was extremely well equipped. Tastefully decorated, and furnished with meticulous attention to detail, but still having a cosy, homely feel. It must have taken a great deal of time and thought by Simon and Jacquie, who were the perfect hosts, available, but not obtrusive. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage.

About the property

Resting in the charming village of Kilham lies Acorn Cottage, a pretty semi-detached cottage sleeping four people in two bedrooms just next door to the owners’ own home.

Ideal for couples, friends or a small family, this property boasts delightful décor with a lawn and patio, and tranquil scenery looking out over the Yorkshire Wolds.

Stepping into the property an attractive living/dining welcomes you, complete with plush sofas, a Smart TV, and a woodburning stove for you to cosy up in front of after a long day of taking in the breath-taking scenery Kilham has to offer, as well as dining seating for four people on characterful pews overlooking the garden and vast Wolds.

Rustle up some tasty meals in the kitchen, complete with an electric oven and hob for the chef of the group to enjoy, a dishwasher and a washing machine to refresh your clothes throughout your stay, while doors leading onto the patio breathe a light and airy feel into the space.

Moving through the property and up the traditional cottage stairs, discover a twin bedroom with zip/link features, ensuring flexible sleeping arrangements for the group, and a king-size with a dresser and freestanding wardrobe for your belongings, and serene views of the surrounding area.

From here, a traditional Jack-and-Jill entrance takes you to the shower room, fit with a walk-in shower, hand basin and WC, allowing space to prepare for your day.

Perfect for enjoying the summer months, the lawn and patio garden offers a peaceful opportunity to take in the unspoiled Wolds.

If you don’t fancy cooking, head out to one of the local pubs, The Old Star Kilham is a family friendly establishment and welcomes bikers and walkers from all walks of life to the Yorkshire countryside, serving traditional pub grub in the evenings, or even venture slightly further to St Quintin Arms which offers a traditional Yorkshire pub experience serving hand-pulled real ales and delicious meals made with local produce.

For the site-seers of the group, local attractions include the Sir Tatton Sykes Monument, also known as the Sledmere Monument, which stands tall amongst the luscious fields, and Glen and Crescent Gardens in nearby Filey, a beautiful attraction with a range of lovely plants and shrubbery as well as a wishing well, boating pond, and a café for your refreshments after a day of exploring your surroundings.

For animal lovers, Bridlington Animal Park is just a short drive away and home to a range of exotic animals such as Bactrian camels and six banded armadillos, as well as many native animals while offering a playground and café for your restful breaks in between.

Why not visit Sea Life Scarborough and enjoy the fascinating sea animals, a perfect day out with the children, or for the fishing enthusiasts head back to Bridlington’s North Bay Angling for a spot of fishing by the sea.

The area as a whole caters for walkers and cyclists with an abundance of routes from the doorstep of the property throughout the county.

Or for a trip a little further afield, find the popular seaside town of Whitby and the breathtaking landscapes of the North York Moors National Park just an hours drive away.

For a relaxing getaway to East Yorkshire, choose Acorn Cottage as your base.
