  • "Well planned and designed cottage all fixtures and fittings are to a high standard."

    Good location with four large dog friendly beaches at Skipsea via Mr Moos!, Hornsea, Fraisthorpe and Mappleton each of which had parking (3 of them free), PCs and dog friendly cafes and all were within a fifteen minute drive. First time we've been to this part of the east coast but would say its underrated. For dog owners it has all you need

  • "The accommodation was excellent, clean and well provisioned."

    Skipsea has only one pub open Wednesday to Sunday and a village shop but proved a great base for touring the area.

  • "This was a perfect cottage for a couple."

    There was everything you might need, even down to maps of the area, the welcome pack was particularly useful. It is tastefully decorated with a comfortable and spacious bedroom and living area. The kitchen is lovely, there is no washing machine but the owners will allow you to use theirs. The bathroom is excellent, even with toiletries provided. This was a spotlessly clean cottage. Parking was easy, the pub just across the road, and the shop a couple of minutes walk away. The food in the pub is good and the staff friendly. We liked Hornsea and got some excellent but not cheap fish and chips from the Seafront Chip Shop. Our hosts were lovely, it is reassuring that they are close by. We simply loved the place and will be back!

    The bed was a little uncomfortable for me but can't please everyone with that. The bathroom had a damp smell but we just left the light on and opened the door all the time which seemed to resolve the issue. Loads of things to do in the area, would have been nice to have been left brochures of leaflets on what to do in the area, we were given recommendations by others once there but didn't have the time to visit them all. Our dog loved the cottage and the walks in the area! Thank you again for having us

    I think the property had some damp issues particularly the bathroom as this smelt damp, the rest of the property seemed fine

    Hi Ian, I am sorry that you had an issue - no guests have mentioned this previously. Although as the bathroom is internal we have noticed that there is sometimes a problem when guests don't leave the door open to allow air through - this is a condensation issue rather than damp. As detailed in the property information available in the Old Tractor Shed we do ask guests to leave the bathroom door open when they go out to allow the space to air. Once again I am sorry you had an issue. Best wishes, Chrysta Property Owner

  • "The Old Tractor Shed is beautifully presented and comfortable."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived and had everything we needed for our stay and more. Chrysta is friendly and very welcoming and even gave us some good advice on places to go as we were there over Christmas so not everything was open. We would definitely recommend The Old Tractor Shed to anyone looking to visit the Skipsea area.

The property

This splendid, one-bedroom cottage sits within a private courtyard in the quaint village of Skipsea, East Riding of Yorkshire.

With ground-floor accommodation, The Old Tractor Shed provides a lovely escape for couples eager to explore the coastline and spend time visiting the large seaside resorts of Bridlington, Hornsea and Scarborough.

Boasting a bright and cheerful open-plan living area with exposed timbers, there is a well-equipped kitchen hosting all the mod cons required for a short break, a smart dining set and a snug seating area with bookcase and TV.

Furnished to a high standard throughout, the pretty bedroom leads off the sitting area and hosts a plush Kingsize bed with neat ample wardrobe space for your personal items.

Completing the interior is the contemporary shower room, a refreshing space to prepare for the day.

The Old Tractor Shed is ideally situated to explore the Yorkshire Wolds made famous by David Hockney who has lived in Bridlington.

The local village of Skipsea caters for everyday needs and has access to the coast and beach, whilst the traditional seaside town of Hornsea lies just five miles away.

Those budding historians can visit the wonders of Skipsea Castle, which was a Norman motte and bailey castle dating back to around 1086, showcasing a wealth of historical architecture.

Within a mile walk from the cottage will bring you to a gentle beach, which is ideal for those wanting a more calm atmosphere, while Scarborough, a bustling seaside town farther afield, promises to be a fun-filled day out.

Wildlife lovers and walkers have Flamborough Headland Heritage Coast within easy reach for idyllic coastal paths, sandy bays, and spotting the likes of puffins along RSPB Bempton Cliffs.

The majestic homes of Sledmere House, Burton Agnes Hall, and Burton Constable Hall are all worth seeing, and a day trip to York's stunning ancient city is a must.

However you choose to spend your holiday time, return to the charm of The Old Tractor Shed for an evening of relaxation.

About the location

SKIPSEA

Hornsea 6 miles; Bridlington 9 miles; Driffield 11 miles; Beverley 15 miles.

The village of Skipsea is situated in the Yorkshire Wolds, in a typically rural setting surrounded by rich, agricultural land, yet Skipsea also sits within one mile of the beach and is close to the cliffs of the North Sea. The village has its own Post Office and general store, a hairdresser’s and a pub. Many of the houses in the village, both old and new, use cobbles from the sea shore in the building. Just outside the village are the remains of Skipsea Castle. The surrounding countryside is excellent for walking and cycling, whilst the nearby seaside towns of Bridlington and Filey boast long sandy beaches and numerous resort attractions. The Deep Submarium at Hull, Sledmere House and Burton Constable Hall are within 20 miles, whilst the shops, cathedral and museum of historic York, the resort town of Scarborough and the North Yorks Moors Steam Railway at Pickering are within an hour’s drive, and Whitby is just a little further, making Skipsea a superb base for a relaxing holiday.
