  • "Amazing house !"

    Location is perfect with the Star Inn pub right across the road and local supermarkets within 10 minute drive. Garden was perfect for the dogs and we all enjoyed ourselves. Will be back again.

  • "Fantastic cottage, couldn’t fault."

    If anything the pictures didn’t do it justice, was a lot bigger than expected. The garden was bigger and more enclosed than we thought (dogs could go outside without worry). The property was immaculately clean and we felt very much at home within minutes of unpacking. Unsure if the pool was heated with solar panels but it was warmer than it looked. Only disappointment was we didn’t book for longer

  • "My family and I visited Bailey Cottage for a week in April to celebrate my wife’s retirement."

    The cottage is situated in a quiet village but with a local pub that serves decent food and is very welcoming. The cottage itself is superb. It has all the necessary equipment needed in the kitchen including three ovens, large fridge freezer, washing machine and drier. The bedrooms are well furnished and the beds are very comfortable. There are three bathrooms and a downstairs toilet and a comfortable lounge. We couldn’t have asked for more and we fully enjoyed our week and would recommend the cottage to anyone.

  • "Absolutely fabulous stay for 6 people!"

    The house was stunning, had everything you needed for a home from home. Beautiful open kitchen with every utensil ypu could think of, lots of cleaning products, a cute little biscuit hamper, wine and milk on arrival. The property also benefitted with a large garden, with wooden games, a tennis court and swimming pool (although we knew thiswl was closed in winter). Would happily return for a visit in summer too!

  • "Absolutely immaculate house."

    On 3 levels, so it took our little dog a couple of days knowing which stairs went where! Such a comfy lounge, with a wood burner, wow does it throw some heat out with only 1 log burning! A fantastically equipped kitchen, 4 beautiful bedrooms, you could want for nothing. A very thoughtful welcome basket, plus a huge box of chocolates as it was my birthday whilst here. Shame about the weather, but end of January never is nice, but at least we went out every day. Would stay here again. Thank you to the owners.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Bailey house and enjoyed being together as a family."

    It was good to relax and ease into the new year gently. We’d love to stay again and will have a Labrador with us next time, so very happy with how dog friendly the property is. Beautiful spacious accommodation, and very cosy in winter with ground source heating and a great log burner. We can definitely recommend the Star Inn down in the village, a warm welcome and lovely food.

The property

Pocklington 9 miles.

Nestled in North Dalton near Pocklington in East Yorkshire is Bailey House, a contemporary, four-bedroom home.

Within distance of a hub of amenities and attractions, whilst a car journey away from the city of York, Bailey House offers a stylish base for a family of eight, providing access to an enclosed garden, sleek living spaces, and a shared outdoor swimming pool (only available from May - October) in the grounds of a working farm.

Benefit from designated parking before making your way indoors, to be greeted by the entrance hall; use this space to hang coats and boots, or continue into the homely sitting room, with plush seating, a Smart TV and woodburning stove to light on cooler evenings.

Travel down to the lower ground floor to be welcomed by the open-plan living space, where you can prepare meals, dine as an eight and unwind, or perhaps throw open the patio doors to relish in an alfresco affair within the enclosed garden.

End your evening with a refreshing dip and use of the shared pool, a game of tennis, or pick some fresh herbs, vegetables or strawberries from the walled kitchen garden, before sloping off to sleep in one of the four bedrooms on offer; select between three king-size bedrooms, two of which benefit from en-suite shower rooms, and a lower-ground-floor twin.

The home is complete with a sleek bathroom, with a free-standing bath to delve into and a walk-in shower to enjoy, where you can get ready in style.

If you can tear yourself away, head into Pocklington, where you can stock up on the essentials and grab a bite to eat, whilst local attractions include the Kilnwick Percy Golf Club, Burnby Hall Gardens, and North Cliffe Wood Nature Reserve, all reachable by car.

Head into Beverley to tour the local guildhall, take in the beauty of the Coronation Garden, or enjoy a leisurely afternoon at Beverley Westwood Park and Garden.

With York nearby, enjoy a day in the city, brimming with popular restaurants and bars, highstreets of shops, and characterful attractions, including the National Railway Museum York, York Castle Museum, York Minster, and the York City Walls, before ending your trip with a toast at a riverfront bar, enjoying vistas of River Ouse.

About the location


York 13 miles.

The pretty little market town of Pocklington nestles at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds in the Vale of York. It is perhaps best known for Burnby Hall Gardens - 8 acres of gloriously beautiful gardens with two large lakes which are home to the National Collection of water lilies. There are several world famous attractions nearby - majestic Castle Howard, beautiful Sledmere House, and of course the historic city of York. The town boasts a leisure centre offering a wide range of sports, including swimming, a Civic Centre and the Pocklington Arts Centre, which shows various films and stages live shows throughout the year. Pocklington is also home to Madhyamaka Kadampa Meditation Centre, known worldwide for its meditation courses and retreats, plus the KP Golf Club is situated approx. 1 mile away and offers wedding and other event facilities, a stylish bar and a restaurant, as well as an 18 hole championship golf course. Just a few miles away is the village of Warter, which is where David Hockney produced his 'Bigger Trees Near Warter' painting. Nearby are various cycle ways including the North Sea Cycle Route and walkers will love either the long distance walks along the Wolds Way or one of the many more circular walks in the area for all abilities. For those who enjoy touring by car, Pocklington forms part of the Pocklington Round, a lovely scenic drive which takes in some of the area’s prettiest villages.
