  • "An ideal place for a quiet getaway."

    The owner was very friendly and helpful. The flat was comfortable. I slept well, which is not always the case when not sleeping in my own bed. In a good position for walks or for going into places like York or Bridlington. Already planning a second visit next year.

  • "Lovely place to stay, clean and comfortable."

    There is everything you need in the apartment, with plenty of room and good beds. The owners are very friendly and will help and advise with any questions. Good central stopping point for the East Coast, York, or any place in the North East. Highly recommended.

  • "Our holiday was delightful and our hosts were extremely helpful and friendly."

    The accommodation was just right for what we needed and in lovely surroundings, I would definitely recommend it! The only thing I could possibly find fault with was that we were expecting a double bed but it seemed to be two single beds pushed together and one of us would inevitably sink into the middle in our sleep! Other than that, everything was marvellous!

  • "Well equipped comfy apartment conveniently placed for exploring the East Riding and Coast."

    The apartment is small but has everything you need. If you are under 5ft 2 reaching the cupboards requires standing on a chair!

The property

Pocklington 0.8 miles. This cosy first floor apartment is just the ticket for exploring the spectacular Yorkshire Wolds, a trip into historic York or for experiencing the myriad of activities on offer all within an easy drive of the pretty market town of Pocklington.

Fairview Apartment has lovely views of the Wolds, and has the added attraction of the owner’s farm shop, with children’s play area, in the grounds stocking lots of local produce, from locally-brewed ale to chutneys and cakes.

There is also a café on site serving delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners for a truly tasty holiday treat.

The nearby Buddhist Centre at Kilnwick Percy is the perfect place to learn about meditation, or simply to enjoy a stroll; with over 40 acres of parkland, it makes a super day out.

The delightful Burnby Hall Gardens are home to the biggest collection of Hardy Water Lilies to be found in a natural setting in Europe.

The gardens are beautiful, with a variety of areas including a secret garden.

The venue also plays host to several Sunday afternoon band concerts during the summer which are really popular.

For cyclists there is a good choice of challenging routes nearby, and with the Wolds at your feet the walking is terrific.

Pocklington has its own canal which is slowly being restored however there is a towpath along its entire length of 9.5 miles.

This is a wildlife haven for damselflies, dragonflies, kingfishers and barn owls, plus there are memorable boat trips from the Melbourne Arm of the canal.

Visit historic York, head up to the coast at Bridlington or Scarborough, explore The Deep in Hull or spend the day in the beautiful surroundings of the Moors or the Dales.

Wherever you head, you’ll be delighted to return to this cosy apartment.

About the location

POCKLINGTON

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.
