  • "Everything was spotless when we arrived."

    The cottage had everything we needed. The hot tub was great and having a real fire was a nice bonus which made the place lovely and cosy. Our hosts were easy to contact (as they are just next door) when we needed a couple of small things sorting.

  • "Lovely cottage with excellent hot tub."

    Pam and Tim, the hosts were friendly and helpful and made sure cottage was spotless before we arrived, even fogging the premises to prevent any covid problems. The cottage is situated ideally for visiting coast and countryside. Unlike some cottages every utensil imaginable was provided in the kitchen. We all enjoyed ourselves especially my mother who celebrated her 88th birthday on the day of our arrival. Thanks again.

    Wonderful people. Myself, the children and my pomeranian Bear had a great time. The cottage was cosy, clean and well equipped. The hottub was fun, well placed and a great added extra. The fire brung a real cosyness and the selection of games and dvds went down well with the children. We cooked every night and didnt fail to find anything we needed for food preparation. The kitchen had everything. We visited Scarborough, York, Filey, Bridlington and had some lovely scenic drives. 10/10 Best cottage we have ever stayed in :)

    It was immaculately presented, very clean and had everything you would need for a stress free getaway (including a baby monitor so we could enjoy the hot tub while our little man was in bed).

  • "The Cottage was absolutely fantastic."

    The owners were very nice and explained how to use things on our arrival. The Cottage is very well equipped, and a bit like home from home....The only difference is, at home I don't have a hot tub, which was absolutely incredible. I would definitely recommend this place, and would love to go back again. Our dog loved the massive ( extremely well kept) back garden. It is so quiet and peaceful, lovely to hear birds chirping. Great place to stop, and isn't far from different attractions, depending on what you want to see. Definitely 5 stars from me and my family.

  • "Fantastic holiday!"

    The cottage was cozy and quiet and the hot tub was a real treat! Just 20 mins drive from Bridlington and 10 from the quaint little town of Driffield. Kilham village itself is very pretty but the pubs only open in the evening and very expensive. The little shop had everything you need but is also very pricey. Tim and Pam are great hosts and happy to help with any enquiries you have whilst also allowing you your privacy. Lovely holiday and hope to go back!

The property

A delightful mid-terrace cottage, next door to the owner's home, on the edge of the quiet rural village of Kilham, mid way between Driffield and Bridlington in the Yorkshire Wolds.

A brick-built cottage with whitewashed façade and pantile roof, this character Kilham cottage boasts original beamed ceilings and a brick fireplace which houses a cosy woodburning stove.

There are two comfortable bedrooms in this Driffield cottage, one with an original brick fireplace and views over open countryside.

On the ground floor there is a sitting room with dining area and woodburning stove and a small, well-equipped kitchen which opens on to a patio leading to a lawned rear garden with hot tub and changing facilities.

Kilham offers two pubs.

Further afield are the market towns of Driffield, Beverley, Hornsea and Hunmanby, all of which offer shopping and dining facilities, plus Bridlington has award-winning, sandy beaches.

RSPB Bempton Cliffs nature reserve is famous for puffins and gannets in the summer and Flamborough has wonderful limestone cliffs on view along the bracing coastal footpaths.

The Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Route is less than a mile from the cottage, and it's on the Hockney Trail, plus the historic resort of Whitby and the delights of York are both within an easy drive.

This Kilham cottage is ideally placed for a varied and interesting holiday.
