  • "We have just returned from this Beautiful cottage after choosing it to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday week after seeing the property and thinking how beautiful it looked ."

    It wasn't until you got into the place that the WOW factor really hits you.The lovely Julie showed us around and the pictures on Sykes website really don't do it justice,it's an absolute stunning property. The decor is fantastic, everything is high end top spec , TV's are huge the beds are very comfortable and the hot tub was fantastic. The whole cottage screamed luxury as soon as you walk through the door. Great location and plenty to do around the area and we enjoyed every minute. We have stayed in a lot of properties in the UK and Well cottage is by far the best one we have stayed in, and won't hesitate to visit again. You certainly won't be disappointed if you have booked this amazing property. Chris, Emma,Abbie and Josh

    Helen and Lee were very helpful, without being intrusive. The hot tub was perfect, we loved the privacy of it, the shelter protects from the wind and rain too. Thank you Helen and Lee, we will be back Karen & Mal

  • "Wow! Well Cottage is a fantastic place to stay!"

    Helen and Lee are amazing hosts, nothing is too much trouble and the place is decorated throughout to the highest standard. It’s full of mod cons, beautiful artwork and lots of extra little touches that we’ve never had in places that we’ve stayed before. From a huge comfy bed to a luxury copper bath, top-notch showers, modern central heating, a beautiful log fire, a big secluded hot tub and private garden with furniture and bbq, the list goes on! And not forgetting the kitchen aid toaster and kettle which we loved! It was just what we needed for a quiet relaxing week away and we didn’t want to leave! We visited Hull, Beverley and Hornsea which were all close by and had a fabulous time. (Lily’s Fish & Chips in Hornsea was the best we’ve ever had!) We also had a couple of days just chilling at the cottage and in the hot tub as the place is so cosy, homely and roomy and the huge tv’s (all with Sky movies and sports) meant that we could relax in real comfort! The welcome pack was first class and the bottle of bubbly went down a treat on my birthday! So basically what I am saying is do not hesitate to book this hidden gem, we have recommended it to family and friends and we’ll definitely be back. Congratulations Helen and Lee, you should be proud and hope to see you again soon, Jo & Vinny x

    hey Jo & Vinny :) thank you so much for this lovely feedback, and for leaving the cottage immaculately clean, very much appreciated ;)) x hope to see you again sometime :) Property Owner

  • "We were greeted on arrival by the lovely Helen who showed us round Well Cottage of which she is deservedly proud."

    The welcome pack is the best we have ever seen. The cottage was spotlessly clean with everything top quality and like new. The beds were extremely comfortable and towels of a good size (wrap right round you – other cottages please note). With the high tech kettle and toaster (the latter an experience in itself) added to the coffee machine, 3 televisions, the touch light on the bed and the mirror that lights up when you look into it, we soon learned that technology plays a big part here, although my wife couldn't manage to turn off the TV in the main bedroom! (obviously a knack). Never having used a hot tub before I was apprehensive about how to fill it etc. but needn't have worried as it was up to temperature and ready to go (and very private). A wonderful experience. Set in a delightful quiet village facing onto a courtyard with other cottages owned by Helen (who happens to live next door). The best cottage we have stayed in.

  • "Well cottage is a gem of a find."

    Helen is an amazing host, very welcoming and goes that extra mile to ensure you have everything you need for your stay. The welcome cart, with cereals, muffins, tea, coffee& biscuits is a 5 star hotel touch, real butter, milk & chilled Prosecco, Helen does think of everything. The cottage is in a great location for exploring, Flamborough & Robins Hood Bay a must. There’s also plenty of good restaurants near by in Beverley, Brandesburton which are a short drive. Well Cottage offers everything you need, beautiful furnishings, comfortable beds, nice enclosed garden with hot tub & stone built barbecue. The property itself is in a pretty courtyard location, with Helen and Lee on site should you need anything. Leven itself is a pretty village, with 2 Pubs, takeaway that does everything!, a well stocked local shop, butchers & Deli. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

    ! Photos don’t do it justice. Everything was of an extremely high standard and the hosts were extremely welcoming and accommodating. The welcome pack was wonderful, Prosecco on ice, scones and other little treats. The bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in and the hot tub was perfect. The location is fantastic too, literally two minutes walk for the local pub, shop, takeaway and butchers. We will definitely love to return here in the future. Thank you for such an amazing stay!

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at the beautifully decorated Well Cottage."

    It’s in a lovely quiet area and we were made very welcome by the owners Helen and husband who live next door. The level of comfort provided is exceptional with every need catered for. Not only we’re we supplied with chilled prosecco on arrival but homemade scones too. Having a hot tub in the garden was an added bonus especially if we didn’t want to go far. However there are many places to visit in the area. We particularly enjoyed Bridlington south beach. There are many places to eat within 30 minutes drive. Particularly recommend the Tiger Inn in Beverley but it’s best to ring & book a couple of days in advance. Highly recommend this cottage for a relaxing luxury getaway.
