    “We checked with your representative to make sure the parking was suitable for a large van conversion and we were told that there was ample parking and it would be fine.”

    This was not the case, we struggled to park and if the other property had been let I'm not sure what would have happened. There was a couple of feet of space to get out of our van and we had to walk on weeds which were growing on the very small amount of space.

    This was not the case, we struggled to park and if the other property had been let I'm not sure what would have happened. There was a couple of feet of space to get out of our van and we had to walk on weeds which were growing on the very small amount of space. Weeds were growing on all of the garden and the back garden patio was filthy, good job we had plenty of dog towels. We had to clean our dogs feet every time we let her out into the muddy area, it was very wet weather. We ended up using the dustpan and brush to clean the yard and we removed some of the weeds. I emailed the owner about this but she didn't have the decency to reply. The cottage itself was lovely, we met the cleaning girls on our departure and we told them that they did a superb job keeping the cottage spotless. We mentioned the garden and the weeds and they told us that the owners used to keep it tidy but they hadn't been for a very long time. We loved the cottage and the village but we won't be going back and if we'd gone when the weather was.good we certainly wouldn't want to sit outside. Regards Sue Glover

The property

Sledmere 0.3 miles.

Call Out Cottage is a semi-detached cottage, part of what was previously the village fire station in Sledmere which served the Yorkshire Wolds.

Providing comfortable and luxurious accommodation, with lovely views over open countryside and farmland, this property is a fantastic choice for those looking to explore both the East Coast and the rolling hills of the Wolds.

The cottage has been luxuriously furnished to the highest of standards and has a spacious and light open plan living area which has been decorated with a fire engine colour scheme.

The well-equipped kitchen is bright and modern and there is a dining area with plenty of space for the whole group.

In the sitting area are sumptuous leather sofas where you can relax in the evening.

French doors open onto the rear, enclosed patio, which provides a pleasant spot to enjoy an evening drink whilst savouring the pretty, rural views.

On the first floor are two en-suite bedrooms, the double room boasting a freestanding bath where you can soak tired legs at the end of the day.

A short stroll brings you to the local village inn, serving food and local ale, whilst a pleasant walk to the stately home of Sledmere House is well worth it.

It's a short drive along country roads to the historic market town of Driffield, which offers independent shops, tea rooms, restaurants and a weekly market day.

For culture seekers, there's the added delight of the Hockney Trail, which encompasses the best of the Yorkshire Wolds.

The seaside lies within half an hour's drive at Bridlington, a traditional seaside resort with golden sands, a pretty harbour and amusement arcades.

Be sure to visit the windswept chalk cliffs of Flamborough and Bempton RSPB Reserve, which offer spectacular coastal views, and with York an easy drive, this property is well placed for a memorable holiday.
