    Just the right spot to get away from it all and relax.

  • "Stable cottage is a lovely cottage surrounded by beautiful countryside."

    The cottage was very clean and comfortable when we arrived. There is a nice garden to sit in, if the weather allows, and a hot tub which our girls made a good use of. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Overall, would highly recommend.

  • "This was a lovely holiday in a lovely heart warming cottage."

    The owners are next door and are very friendly. The cottage felt very safe and secure as it's in it's own grounds. The hot tub was amazing and very much appreciated after a busy day. Myself and my family hope to return.

  • "The cottage exceeded all our expectations and was exactly as described."

    The milk, tea, coffee and all the goodies were a lovely surprise. Our dog loved the central, secure garden which must be a delight in the summer months. Plus being safe for children. Ideally situated for exploring the gorgeous east coast which provides many attractions to suit all ages or a retreat for those seeking peace & tranquility.

  • "We have just had a week staying at Stabke Cottage and it far exceeded our expectations."

    The description in the advert does not do it justice. It was spotlessly clean in all areas, the beds were the most comfortable we have ever slept in. The facilities were fantastic and extra bounus of the hot tub, which despite the weather was a welcome but of luxury. We have already booked again for later in the year. An exceptional property, very quiet, but a short ride to Hornsea and surrounding areas.

  • "Beautiful cottage, with an absolutely delightful court yard, walled garden."

    The cottage is remote, yet easily accessible. The garden is enclosed yet feels so open (if that makes sense!). Totally recommended for a peaceful escape. The owners were very welcoming and available, if needed.

  • "The accomodation exceeded our expectations."

    Adjoining the owners property the cottage has been very well planned. We wouldnt have known the owners were adjacent as we saw and heard very little. The Smart TV is a great addition. The bed was very comfy, and the bathroom with bath and shower very specious. The kitchen had everything we needed with a spacious fridge/freezer. The hot tub in the private courtyard was lovely to use. The courtyard itself is exclusive use by those staying. It is very spacious and our dog was able to wander and exercise securely. The cottage is surrounded by acres and acres of meadows and great walks are minutes away. It is remote and peaceful and was exactly what we was looking for. We hope to return.

  • "The cottage was amazing lots of space, brilliant facilities and a beautiful private garden area."

    Whilst the hot tub was fantastic and exclusive for our use it is on the other side of the garden to walk around to and is overlooked by the owners windows so would not describe as private.

    Garden is enclosed which makes it ideal for dogs and children. Within easy reach of many beaches and places of interest. We visited Spurn, Burton Constable and Withernsea. The hot tub is the perfect treat after a day walking. The village pub does great food. Highly recommended.

    When we arrived the owner had left us milk, biscuits, coffee, tea and even my favourite fresh flowers. The cottage was clean, warm and very comfortable- especially the bed and lovely soft pillows. The kitchen was very well equipped, with everything you could want for a holiday. Loved the hot tub, and the gardens were lovely. It was quiet, peaceful and just what we needed for a short Autumn break. We would love to return.

    Ideal for walks and exploring the area. With a dog friendly pub in new ellersby the railway meant we could go out as well as stay in as everything was to hand.

    The kitchen was well stocked with milk, tea, coffee, hot choc, ice cubes even a coffee making machine. The ice cream pots were an added bonus. We really didn't need to take kitchen roll, washing up liquid or tea towels as everything was supplied. The bathroom was just as well equipped with shampoo, body wash, toilet rolls and the all important white soft towels (enough for 3 each) all in all this place was just perfect. Nice touches even down to Netflix. The garden was enclosed and beautifully planted and kept the puppy contained, i'll miss the smell of jasmine on my walk to the hot tub which was the best part of my stay and was maintain daily by the hot tub fairy... This place is just simply perfect....

    Everything you could possibly need and immaculately presented. Hornsea is a very short drive away and tesco/beach easy to find. Although Hornsea does have sand it is quite stony so useful to bring shoes that are waterproof. Hot tub was wonderful asset as you could sit in and enjoy the wafting smell of jasmine plants and watch the local birds swoop overhead - complete bliss.

  • "The attention to detail in the cottage decor and cleanliness was exceptional."

    The garden area and hot tub are an absolute pleasure, even in April in the rain! We were welcomed with milk, jam, coffee and tea etc on arrival and found everything we could possibly need in the cupboards. The smart TV was a particular hit with our teenagers, who watch several films in the evenings. The beds were lovely and comfy and the bathroom was clean and bright. The local area is beautiful. Unfortunately, the local pub is not dog friendly anymore, but the Marine in Hornsea is and we enjoyed a meal and a football match there. We were in the perfect place to visit Beverley, Bridlington an Scarborough amongst others and found Hornsea itself great for watching the waves crash in and getting takeaways, eating in little dog friendly cafes and of course Tesco for the essentials. A very varied holiday encompassing everything from Speed boat rides to lazy book reading in the hot tub. Lovely holiday with lots of great memories, would recommend.

The property

This character, luxury cottage adjoins the owner’s home in the village of Withernwick, five miles from Hornsea in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

This cottage has been finished to a high standard and provides a luxurious holiday home for families or small groups of friends to relax and enjoy the many attractions of this pretty area.

There are two spacious bedrooms with a family bathroom, all furnished to a high standard.

This then leads you to the good-sized sitting room, with a separate dining area, with plenty of comfy sofas making it a great place to relax after a full day out and about exploring the area.

The well-equipped kitchen is of a decent size, making it good to prepare those home-cooked meals.

To the outside is a pretty shared courtyard, with your own private garden area with furniture and a hot tub, making it a good place to dine alfresco or enjoy something cool to drink.

Situated less than half a mile from the Trans Pennine Trail, head out on a bike ride along this popular route, with lots of other flat, quiet country roads spanning the surrounding area.

A short walk takes you into the village itself where you can enjoy some local food or drink after a day out walking the area.

The short drive to Hornsea brings you to a traditional seaside resort with long sandy beaches, a variety of interesting shops and a good selection of restaurants and country pubs.

For something different take a trip to Hornsea Mere which is the largest natural lake in Yorkshire and offers sailing, fishing and boat trips.

Take a visit to Hull for a day out, which has been named as the City of Culture for 2017 or visit the historic city of York.

Further afield are the seaside towns of Bridlington and Scarborough with great beaches and promenades to frequent.

With lots to do in the area, Stable Cottage makes a superb place for a good holiday at any time of the year.
