  • "Highly delighted at our holiday let."

    The owner’s have gone to extreme trouble to think of giving clients a home from home with extras

  • "Wow what a gem!"

    Beautiful decor, clean and homely. Attention to detail including the hamper and doggy treats! Beautiful views and peaceful! The list is endless. Only recommendations to have a fan available as it was very stuffy and hot tub to be filled ready as took several hours to be able to enjoy Will definitely return and be recommending to family and friends

    Thank you so much for your kind review, we were so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the fans, we have fans available all year round on request & as the weather improves we tend to leave them in the cottages, I have ensured they are in now :) Unfortunately the hot tub must be filled by yourselves as we are not allowed to leave wood fired hot tubs filled with water as it does not comply with regulations, I hope this didn’t cause you too much inconvenience & hope you will return in the near future. Best Wishes Joanne & Steve x Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful long weekend at Robin's Nest."

    Glorious weather, a brilliant little cottage, with all the things you need. Very comfortable and in a great location. We took the dog and he loved the walks over the fields close by. Good location for trips into York. Loved warming up the hot tub and having a very peaceful, relaxing weekend. Great hosts and a lovely welcome hamper topped off our fantastic break.

  • "Absolutely beautiful place with everything we could need."

    Welcome hamper, robes & logs were a lovely touch & we enjoyed very much. The place is immaculate & has everything you need with a fully equipped kitchen. The location is a good base to explore the beautiful east coast & we enjoyed the walk with our GSD around Robin Hoods Bay to Boggles hole , Flamborough head ( where we saw seals on the beach ) & Filey. The town of Pocklington is a 5 minute drive & we did a lovely walk down Pocklington Canal. The log burning hot tub was lovely after a days walking.

    Thank you for such kind feedback Mark, we were so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. Sounds like you had a busy time. We hope you can return in the near future. Best wishes Joanne & Steve Property Owner

  • "Gorgeous cottage!"

    The bed was ridiculously comfy. Everything was spotless. Perfect location. I couldn’t recommend enough. Just make sure the first thing you do is fill/heat the hot tub as it takes a while but don’t let this put you off as I couldn’t fault the place. Lovely place to stay.

    Thank you so much for such a kind review, we are pleased to hear how much you enjoyed the cottage & hope you can return in the near future. Best wishes Joanne & Steve Property Owner

  • "This is the best equipped, cleanest and most comfortable holiday let we've ever stayed it."

    Allow yourself about 90 mins to fill the hot tub and 5 hours to heat it. No electric means no bubbles though which I hadn't realised until we got there but it was lovely to lay in it and listen to the owls hooting away in the darkness.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a kind review. We were pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay & hope you will return in the near future. Best wishes Joanne & Steve Property Owner

  • "Robins Nest is a little bolthole in the country."

    We loved our stay in your little cottage. We were greeted to the most amazing welcome package and a basket full of logs for the log fire as well as having a beautiful Christmas tree sparkling in the corner. Kitchen was fully stocked of equipment, shower was amazing and the beds were so comfortable. Not far from the busy streets of York which we visited on Saturday but our favorite day was walking around Pocklington, we had lunch at the Wolds Cafe, absolutely delicious and found a gem of a shop called Dilly Dally which is full of treasures. We will most definitely return.
