  • "The cart house is just as advertised."

    Well equipped, very comfortable indeed, wonderfully quiet and peaceful. Comfortable sofas, very comfortable beds, good shower, great WiFi and fully equipped kitchen (including proper fridge and freezer & not the small under counter fridge with tiny freezer you often get). Ulrome is within very easy reach of Hornsea, Bridlington, Filey, Scarborough , Flamborough head. There's only a couple of very minor recommendations from us to improve it. Upstairs was very warm with small low windows which can't be opened far. (a fan would help). Also a vacuum cleaner would help for cleaning up bits on the large rug downstairs. Thanks for a great stay, well done.

  • "A lovely cottage, clean & comfy."

    Ample storage space & nice bed linen.The welcome pack was a lovely touch, thank you Karen. Sadly the outside of the cottage lets it down with moss growing on decking and outside furniture. Wooden sleepers were rotting & so was L/h side of front door. Roof tile missing next to Velux window, looks like it's been lying in the grass for some time.such a shame after all the hard work that's been done.The dog walking paddock was unusable due to waist high weeds & grass .Doesn't look like it's been used for years.

  • "Really beautiful cottage with everything you need."

    Comfortable beds and we loved the layout having a downstairs bedroom as I am disabled. Had to buy shower mats as incredibly slippy and no handles to hold onto so could have been dangerous. Upstairs bath pipes are very loose and could cause flooding so we didn't use it.

  • "The cottage is in a nice location, with views across a small field , with the road beyond."

    The cleaning is excellent and the seating, beds and general furnishings are good. Whilst a ground floor bedroom was great for us, the two steps up into the bathroom were not mentioned and did present a problem. The kitchen was badly designed when installed and there is not one cupboard available for self catering guests to put there own items into. These items, therefore, take up a large proportion of the worksurface . The problem with the property was the lack of general maintenance, which had not been addressed for some considerable time, as well as lack of attention to detail. Three torches were said to be in the property. There were none. This was reported, but none appeared during our stay. (It is very dark in the property at night) The kitchen tap was continually dripping and this had been pointed out to them by previous occupants two months earlier. (The kitchen is next to the downstairs bedroom, so this doesn't help sleep.) The back door lock was ineffective and the door opened with a slight push, thus placing possessions at risk of theft. The outside areas had seen better days. The front patio needed urgent attention to the surrounds. The rear garden, was full of large weeds, living and dead brambles and various rotting metallic ornaments. Not a pleasant place to sit and relax. The owner says that they are unaware of some defects, as they do not live locally, but they need to be more proactive. If they sorted these matters, it would make it a place worth staying at.

    Dear Richard Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate your time and very happy you felt it was a great place to stay and noted the excellent cleaning. We have taken the cottages off rental for a few weeks to address the issues you have pointed out. New tap, garden tidy, torches. I have been down and resolved the cupboard space issue and resolved the back door and getting it ready for new photo's and a new year. We hope to see you again in 2024 Property Owner

  • "Pros: Lovely old building with a good layout."

    Nice area with lots of places to visit. Cons: The cottage needs some tidying up - the few outdoor pots had only weeds. The outside areas needed sweeping and weeding. The back table and chairs needed renovating, they were quite shabby. The kitchen was lacking a few things - e.g. we didn't have anything to wash the pots except a used scourer. There was only one tea towel and one dishwasher tablet. We could have done with more crockery, particularly mugs.

Skipsea 1.4 miles.

A beautiful traditional cottage with wooden beams and sage windows and doors, The Cart House rests in Ulrome, near Skipsea, and is the ideal getaway to North Yorkshire, for those who love history and heritage.

Park off-road and be welcomed by the picturesque exterior of this property, where a sitting area welcomes you to relax with a coffee in the sunshine and plan the day ahead of you.

The interior of this property is simply stunning, with hints of history and heritage throughout to add character and charm to the open-plan living area.

With contemporary furniture, treat yourself and your guests to a hearty meal cooked in the spacious kitchen, where there are loads of amenities for guests use, and serve your masterpiece at the dining table, before settling down in the sitting area for a film night, with the bare-brick walls, tall ceilings and wooden roofbeams creating a light and airy atmosphere.

Ulrome is a quaint hamlet situated next to the coastal village of Skipsea where there is a pub, convenience store and a handful of shops and eateries.

From here you can access the stunning local sandy beach and enjoy watersports, wild swimming or simply relaxing with a picnic and taking in the view.

Skipsea also has the ruins of Norman Castle, and for more historic sites, head over to the seaside town of Bridlington where there is a museum, as well as Bridlington Animal Park, a golf course and extensive coastal walks through Danes Dyke Beach and nature reserve.

Beyond this is the seaside resort of Scarborough, with its lovely harbour, beach, independent stores and great many pubs and eateries, and it also houses a museum, art gallery and a fantastic castle, Scarborough Castle, making it an excellent place to visit all year long.

Filey is another lovely town with a museum, Filey Bird Garden and Animal Park and from here you can visit The Bay Beach or head into the North York Moors for a scenic walk.

All of this and more with a stay at The Cart House.

Situated 10 miles south of Bridlington and 6 miles north of Hornsea, the vlllage of Skipsea sits in a typically rural setting surrounded by rich, agricultural land, yet also rests 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.
