  • "The only recommendation I would make is to use a What3Words reference to find the property - whilst we didn't really struggle - we find it makes finding anywhere much easier as the accuracy is much more refined than a postcode."

  • "Really lovely comfortable and clean place to stay."

    We were a family of 3 generations - eldest 83yrs and youngest 9yrs old. We had a dog with us too. The beds are amazing (we all slept so well) and the bathrooms lovely. It makes so much difference when you can sleep well! It’s in a beautiful spot surrounded by lush countryside and a great location for exploring York and the surrounding areas. A highlight for us was Burnby Hall gardens which was just beautiful and only a couple of miles away. I highly recommend a visit to it. The hot tub was lovely too. The only issue was the gravel in the garden. It was really hard to walk on and our dog hated it. It would have been so much better if it was half-paved from the living room door to the middle bedroom doors where the table and chairs are. Even with flip-flops on it was a painful walk, especially for my parents. And a parasol over the outside table would have been nice as there was very little shade when the sun was out. But other than the gravel situation, it was lovely and the barn has everything you could need, everything was spotlessly clean and in great working order. We all had a lovely time there and went on a fabulous walk taking the public footpath a little was along the road (left out of the drive) and across the fields in a 3 mile loop which took us across the most wonderful countryside. The welcome pack for both us and our dog was such a lovely thoughtful touch and we very much enjoyed the goodies! Thank you!

    Thank you so much for your kind review, we were so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the gravel, yes this is something that we plan to resolve & it should be completed by the end of this year, I hope your doggy still managed to enjoy his/her stay :) We hope you will return in the near future.

    We had a wonderful stay, great welcome hamper, very peaceful & a good location for travelling around. Property was in good condition, well equipped & extremely comfortable beds & pillows. We knew the hot tub was wood fired as the property description clearly stated this but there were a few comments in the visitor book about it. I’d definitely recommend & we would book again.

    Many thanks for leaving such kind feedback, we were so pleased to hear you had & wonderful break. Best wishes Joanne & Steve Property Owner

  • "Great weekend stay."

    Property is definitely worth a visit. Ideally located for a walk into Pocklington or a visit to York. 3 great sized bedrooms , modern shower rooms and a living space big enough for 6 people to chill. Has all the cooking facilities you need and a dishwasher so no time wasted on chores! The welcome hamper was fabulous and a great surprise. Wood based hot tub took time to master and heat up so a small niggle and we'd know next time. We will be back x

  • "The place was perfect, but if some flowers or plants, be them real or artificial, would have been down the side or even near the hot tub, that would have given some colour when sat out."

    Other than that no problems and would go again.

  • "Absolutely delighted with our stay in Peacock’s Rest."

    The best cottage we’ve ever stayed in. Beautifully decorated with so many thoughtful touches. The lovely hamper for us and our dog was a lovely surprise and very welcome. We really enjoyed the hot tub! Situated in a quiet rural lane meant good dog walks. We really liked nearby Pocklington which had all the facilities you’d need. It was also a good base from which to explore further afield - York, Harrogate, Scarborough as well as beautiful wood and river walks. Thank you for our lovely stay.

  • "This cottage is absolutely beautiful and the owners are incredibly helpful."

    The design of the cottage is very well thought out with the kitchen/dining/living area set up for real comfort for 6 adults and the bedrooms being separated from that space and all having en-suites means 3 couples can enjoy time together and still have their own separate comforts. Everything has been meticulously thought through from the really well kitted out kitchen and the layout to the beautiful decor. The garden is great (completely sealed so the dog is safe from escape!) and the hot tub is really lovely. Nice quiet setting and a short drive to Pocklington. Couldn’t recommend this higher for friends or family wanting a break. Thank you Joanne and Steve
