    “Small and cosy holiday cottage.”

    Hot tub is fantastic and we used it every day. The second bedroom is small when using both beds, however all the beds were very comfy and the bed linen was lovely. Wifi was good. ...

    Hot tub is fantastic and we used it every day. The second bedroom is small when using both beds, however all the beds were very comfy and the bed linen was lovely. Wifi was good. The surfaces were clean, however behind the furniture had not been dusted in a long time. The shower needs a good clean and there was no toilet brush or bathroom cleaner to use. The TV in the lounge is poor quality. Front window in lounge was locked shut so the only way to get any fresh air is to open the conservatory door and kitchen door. The road outside is incredibly busy and fast, and crossing to get to and from the car was tricky at times. We had a lovely break, but wouldn't return to this cottage.

The property

If you are seeking an elegantly appointed self-catering accommodation in the peaceful landscape of the East Riding of Yorkshire, look no further than Hilltop Cottage, a stunning end-terrace cottage resting in the village of Seaton.

Positioned within striking distance of the east coast and surrounded by rural landscapes of rolling hills and woodland, this is a rare find for romantics, small families, avid ramblers and those alike to call home.

Push open the front door of the cottage at the end of each day to reveal the sitting area, where a feature fireplace set in a traditional surround takes centre stage before the plush sofa, matching arm chair and TV, making a cosy spot for kicking back and relaxing with your loved ones.

Move across the original wood flooring to find the spacious kitchen, where two characterful rocking chairs invite you to rest a while, whilst the electric woodburning-effect fire gently fills the room with warmth.

The characterful, original flooring is set beneath the contemporary kitchen units, where the chef of the group can look forward to making the most of the quality appliances that are on hand, with the exposed beams adding a sense of charm to the space.

Regroup with your loved ones at the light-filled dining table, placed within the conservatory, where you can relish in the company of your loved ones whilst tucking into a home-cooked dish and enjoying the overlooking views of the garden.

During the balmy evenings, head out to the garden and enjoy a spot of alfresco dining upon the picnic bench, as something tasty sizzles on the impressive barbecue.

Alternatively, take drinks to the slightly elevated seating area to catch the final glimpses of sunshine before savouring a moment of relaxation by dipping to the hot tub and resting underneath a canopy of stars, bliss!

As the evening draws to a close, sleep is sure to come easy within the master suite, where a sumptuous king-size bed, draped in quality linens and piled with gorgeous pillows is awaiting to be sunk into, and the traditional feature fireplace offers a sense of character as you tune into the TV to unwind for the evening.

Concluding the interior of the cottage is a single bedroom, boasting an additional pull-out bed and dressed with a touch of opulence and a refreshing ambiance and the family shower room features a spacious walk-in shower, basin and WC, with several touches of a nautical theme.

Meander through the pretty village to better acquaint yourself with your surroundings, where you will also find a pub, the Swan Inn to linger over a pint after a long walk or enjoy an evening meal for when you do not feel like cooking.

Travel further afield to the seaside town of Hornsea, where you will find a larger selection of places to eat and drink, as well as a number of shops for picking up the essentials, in addition to a 18-hole course to practice your swing.

Families can look forward to lazing on the shores of the beach, whilst Hornsea Mere, which is within striking distance of the property offer a number of activities including sailing, fishing and boat trips, great for those feeling more adventurous.

Other family-friendly attractions within the local area include visiting the Wassand Hall with its large park and garden to explore, immersing yourself in an enthralling tropical rainforest experience at Bugtopia and brushing up on the local history with a visit to Skipsea Castle.

Whilst here, you could also enjoy a day trip to the city of Hull, where you can enjoy a spot of retail therapy before visiting The Deep, a huge aquarium with over 3000 creatures, including sharks and sawfish or stepping back in time with a visit to Streetlife Museum, there is certainly something for all ages here.

The city of York is further afield but well-worth a visit, or stay closer to home to enjoy the miles of walking and cycling paths in the surrounding woodlands and wild open spaces.

Secure your stay at Hilltop Cottage and prepare for an action-packed holiday.
