"By far the best relaxing and beautiful break we've had in years!"
Sean and Karen are lovely and so helpful. The cottage was quaint and exactly as described, the private hot tub was a dream and the seated area is amazing for the morning coffee. Thank you!
"Very welcoming couple The cottage is spotless The hot tub was amazing"
"Lovely cottage everything you need."
SHAUN and KAREN exellent hosts
"Karen and Shaun were the perfect hosts."
Everything you need is provided, wood for the burner, plastic wine glasses and dressing gowns for the very relaxing hot tob. Milk, tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits, even 6 eggs from their own hens. The cottage is very comfortable and cosy with everything working as it should. Location is perfect, in a small village but central to many places to visit. We had a stroll to the local pub but I wouldn't recommend doing it in the dark as there are long sections of the country lane without a footpath you maybe ok with a good torch. Easy option is a taxi. We would highly recommend this to family, friends or anybody wanting a relaxing break. Karen, Shaun We had the perfect 4 night break. Thank you for your hospitality you have everything spot on. Darren & Wendy
"Amazing weekend spent at Willow Cottage."
Host there to greet us on arrival and gave us a little tour . Despite being adjoined to owners’ property you never felt intruded upon, they are lovely people and have done an amazing job with this place. Hot tub was amazing and many hours were spent in there! Log burner was also great and would be perfect for colder nights. Bed is big and comfy. If you’re looking for somewhere to just relax and not go out much this is perfect. It is close to a nice beachy walk but be prepared to drive a bit if you can coax yourself out of the hot tub for long enough as there’s little in walking distance. All in all a great weekend in a lovely cottage which had excellent facilities!
"Superb cottage and hoasts"
"Beautiful cottage set in the owner’s ground with one acre of land to wander ..."
Beautiful cottage set in the owner’s ground with one acre of land to wander around Karen & Shaun were great hosts and we were greeted with fresh eggs, milk, cookies, tea and coffee on arrival Great hot tub in private patio area Would highly recommend this cottage to any couples
"Lovely hosts; cottage just right; quiet location;"
"Karen and Shaun were very welcoming, pleasant and friendly, nothing was too much trouble."
"Fabulous way to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary in the comfort of Willow Cottage, a real home from home experience, with the added bonus of the Hot Tub."
All made so memorable by the wonderful hosts Karen and Shaun, who went above and beyond.
"We had a peaceful and relaxing holiday in a lovely cottage in this very nice part of Yorkshire."
The cottage had everything that we needed and we received a warm welcome from the owners Karen and Sean.
"Karen & Shaun were fab, loved our little chats and the fresh eggs!"
The cottage was great, comfy, clean and everything you needed in there. The hot tub was amazing. We will definitely be recommending it to everyone.
"Second time at Willow Cottage."
Lovely, tranquil surroundings. After a very stressful year is was exactly what we needed to recharge our batteries. Well done to Karen and Shaun. Would highly recommend this cottage.
"We had a lovely stay here."
The peace and tranquillity was just what we needed. Very well equipped cottage - had everything you could want. Lovely friendly hosts too.
"Absolute fantastic location, with amazing facilities."
The hot tub was cleaned every morning before we woke up and came with full instructions. The log burner was prepared and ready to go. Karen & Shaun were fantastic hosts and gave us a very warm welcome.. I couldn't imagine a better place to stay on the East Ridings of Yorkshire.
"Wow what a gem of a cottage in such a tranquil setting too just oozing wildlife."
The hosts Karen & Shaun couldn’t have been more hospitable or friendly nothing was too much trouble for them. We didn’t want to leave at the end of the week. This cottage has absolutely everything you could want & more for a self catering holiday. Upon arrival there was a lovely welcome pack consisting of fresh eggs (from their own hens) milk, tea, coffee, sugar & lovely biscuits. There is a beautiful log burner which we took advantage of most nights as we didn’t fare well with the weather. The poor weather didn’t spoil our holiday though we went somewhere everyday then came back to the cosy logburner. This cottage is perfectly situated for Hornsea, Bridlington, Scarborough, Bempton, Filey & Flamborough. There are pubs about a mile away in Skipsea & Barmston & its on a bus route too. All info is in a book in the cottage. We had the best nights sleep ever here in the kingsize comfy bed & a huge shower cubicle in the bathroom. I would add that the wifi signal is perfect in the bedroom but weaker in the lounge but was told Shaun is organising a booster for this. It was never a problem anyway as we just made sure we connected in the bedroom when we needed to. An added bonus to this cottage is the fabulous hot tub which we took advantage of & a lovely garden to sit in on sunnier days. Please do book this cottage you will not be disappointed it really does have everything. We will def be back!
"Our hosts were excellent, helpful and friendly."
The hot tub wonderfull. Everything we needed was there including a endless supply of wood for stove. We struggled to get heating to work properly(electric radiators), we asked for help,we were told they took time to heat up and not to play with them just turn on and off as indicated. During the first night we were so cold and radiators had not got hot what so ever. I searched the Internet for instructions the next morning and found rads had been set at 12 degrees in bedroom and main area no wonder we were cold. The bathroom always was cold. What does not help is the stone floor tiles everywhere except bedroom The shower we never could get very hot water, it was sometimes ok ish at first but got cold before finishing shower. My wife could not entertain a shower and had to old fashion strip wash every day. I would imagine excellent when warmer weather but not when its cold. My wife wanted to go home after after a couple of days we had to stay as had appointment on Wed, but we left next day making a feeble excuse.
"Absolutely lovely cottage it really felt like a home away from home."
Hot tub is huge we were really surprised by how big it was! Kitchen is well equipped and everything is well thought out and clean. Lovely village location with public footpath walks. We had a great walk to the nearby village Skipsea where there is a pub and shop via field paths. The beach is a couple of minutes drive down the road but no direct access onto the sand. Still a lovely view though.
"A gem of a cottage with everything required provided and hosts who are warm and welcoming, but leave you to yourself if that is what you like."
Well maintained and clean, but anyone over 5ft. 5ins needs to watch their head, as interior doors are low!!!! Hot tub at a temperature which makes it a joy to use. Although within the grounds of the owners abode, privacy is maintained, with the added extra of undercover parking in the open sided barn. Well worth a visit.
"Willow Cottage was extremely well equipped to a very high standard with everything you could need."
The hot tub and log burner were a lovely feature which we used every day. The owners were more than helpful and friendly if we needed anything. All in all a lovely relaxing few days away.
"We had a great relaxing week."
Willow cottage is a lovely, cosy cottage with a fab hot tub and a lovely log burner. The owners are very welcoming and provided some delicious treats on our arrival. We would love to return someday.
"Beautiful spotless cottage, looking forward to returning!"
"Willow cottage is beautiful and well equipped and very clean with a lovely garden to sit out in , the hot tub is amazing and lovely to relax in ."
There are lots of places to visit by car and we also used the bus service to Bridlington and the park and ride into Scarborough, also if you like walking their are walks from the cottage .The hosts Karen and Sean are very helpful and friendly , it is a delightful cottage to stay in and a lovely area to visit .
"Absolutely loved our holiday at Willow Cottage."
Very well equipped, with comfy bed and nice hot tub. Karen was a lovely hostess, despite going through a rough time, she was always friendly and helpful. The cottage is in an excellent location for all the nearby attractions. If we wanted to visit the area again we would return here despite the low doorways which my poor hubby cracked his head on twice and has still got bruises to show for it! Enjoying the beautiful free range eggs which we bought to bring home.
"Fantastic place to stay, lovely peaceful area."
The owners Karen and Shaun were really friendly a nice touch with complimentary fresh eggs, biscuits, milk, tea & coffee on arrival. The cottage was great spotless and well equipped, the hot tub was amazing great to relax in at the end at the day.
"Lovely cottage just what we needed for a break"
"Me and my friend spent the weekend at this cottage for my birthday, it is such a fantastic place cosy and so relaxing."
The surrounding areas and local village and food places are fantastic really made my weekend, the owners were extremely friendly and always knew how to help. Would recommend this place to anyone, we just wished we had more time off to book it for longer.
"Very friendly, welcoming owners."
Everything had been well thought out and the log burner was lit for our arrival. Very relaxing holiday. Lovely cottage with excellent facilities.
"Was a lovely cottage, great facilities and incredibly welcoming hosts."
"It was a lovely stay and I nice cottage very friendly people who made you feel ..."
It was a lovely stay and I nice cottage very friendly people who made you feel welcome well deserved relaxing break away
"We really enjoyed our stay here, lovely welcome pack, cosy cottage, all the ..."
We really enjoyed our stay here, lovely welcome pack, cosy cottage, all the essentials that you need, private & totally relaxing, plenty of fuel to keep the log burning going if staying on cold nights like we did in November, although fully central heated too, would definitely book & stay here again
"Lovely little cottage with everything we need."
We absolutely loved our 4 nights stay at willow cottage. Host was so welcoming and friendly. Thank you so much for welcome pack. Hot tub was relaxing and private. We loved the wood burner. Pictures don't do justice to the beauty of this place. We are already thinking to go back for Christmas break and so excited. Highly recommended.
"What a lovely, cosy cottage, with everything you need."
Some lovely local pubs and coastal walks. Relaxing evenings spent in the hot tub and then in front of the log burner. Lovely soft, white towelling gowns supplied, as well as fresh eggs, milk, tea and coffee. Will definitely be returning.
"This is a great cottage which I would recommend to anyone looking for a wonderful place to enjoy the East Riding area."
The hot tub was a beautiful way to spend time relaxing. The proprietors, Karen & Sean, were very friendly and I must congratulate them on building and maintaining such a wonderful cottage.
"We enjoyed the peace and tranquillity in a perfect setting,our host`s Debbie & Shawn were very friendly and helpful."
The cottage was great with everything you could need included and the large hot tub was superb the ducks coming down for their food was entertaining
"Willow Cottage is in a good location in the quiet village of Ulrome."
It has a very peaceful atmosphere day and night. There is a well stocked shop in nearby Skipsea, and Ulrome is relatively close to Bridlington, Filey, etc. There is a lane going from Ulrome to the sea, but coastal erosion is very evident here so there are safer beaches in other nearby villages. The cottage owners live on site (in Ivy Cottage, on Main Street), and they are very pleasant and helpful. Willow Cottage is behind and at right angles to Ivy Cottage, so it isn't visible from the road. On site there is a large, gravelled courtyard, easy parking undercover and very pleasant grounds (including seating in the paddock under the willow trees next to the pond). Friendly chickens and ducklings live in the paddock. Willow Cottage has its own (fenced off) outdoor area, with table and seating, and a beautiful hot tub under a permanent gazebo. Plenty of privacy. The Cottage is well-equipped and certainly spacious enough for two people. There are electric panel heaters, plus a wood-burning stove. The bathroom has WC, washbasin, and a large shower cubicle, and water pressure is very good. Older and/or disabled people please note that there are no grab rails in the shower cubicle, or adjacent to the WC. Narrow doorways would also prevent wheelchair access into and around the cottage. Willow cottage has been sympathetically converted from very old farm buildings. Unfortunately there are two very low interior doorways (5'5" and 5'8") and as hubby is 6'6" and I'm 5'7" this did cause some problems as we were unaware of this before arrival - although I'm loathe to put that it didn't meet our expectations just because of this one feature Apart from this, we had a really enjoyable, relaxing and peaceful holiday.
"Great little cottage with everything you could possibly want."
Hot tub is lovely and relaxing. Undercover parking space friendly hosts.
"Fantastic cottage, superb facilities, the owners (Karen & Shaun) could not do enough to make our stay more enjoyable."
Highly recommend willow cottage and we will be returning again.
"Owners were very welcoming and showed us around the cottages then left us to enjoy our break with privacy."
Very central location. Perfect for a quiet, romantic and relaxing weekend. Will be recommending to friends and family.
"Very comfortable cottage with excellent hot tub"
"Fantastic cottage and has everything you need for your holiday, hosts very welcoming and friendly."
"The cosy cottage had everything we needed for a wonderful relaxing week away together."
Since it was our 30th wedding anniversary week we just wanted the peace and quite and to enjoy the countryside. It was the ideal place near alot of things we wanted to visit and explore. Even after our long walks we settled down to the lovely hot tub to relax our weary legs it was perfect
"Amazing cottage, loved the hot tub and log burner."
Lovely location very peaceful but not too far from towns. Spotlessly clean and everything you could need. Couple that own it are very pleasant and friendly. Will definitely return and recommend to people
"The hosts were superb."
Everything was was wonderful for a romantic break.
"Lovely relaxing retreat away from the stresses of everyday life."
Hosts were very friendly and the hot tub and log burner were perfect. The complimentary eggs milk and biscuits were a lovely surprise. Thank you very much
"Really enjoyed our stay."
Fantastic little cottage and the owners were very helpful with everything and told us places to visit. Will definitely be returning in the future.
"The host were absolutely amazing and went above and beyond in making our stay a holiday not to forget and also provided little extras like fresh eggs and a well stocked wood burner."
The cottage was cosy, comfortable and had every facility you would need for a relaxing break and the hot tub was an extra treat. We will definitely be booking here again.
"Warm welcoming by Karen."
Full instructions of every thing. Spotless cottage. hot tub excellent touch. Will definitely be returning.
"Honestly the perfect place for a quiet relaxing break."
Already planning our return !
"This cottage is an absolute gem for exploring the northeastern coast."
Very good location for day trips to Scarborough, Whitby and other places along the Yorkshire coast. The owners Karen and Shaun were very friendly and accomodating, and the cottage was still nice and private with the owners being on site. The kitchen was well stocked, bed was extra comfy and the shower was powerful and hot. The hot tub outside was a treat and easy to use. A lovely wood burner, with wood provided, made the cottage nice and cozy on cold nights in. The only thing I wished was better was the wifi, as it was we could only get a useful signal in the bedroom, and our EE data and mobile phone signal was nonexistent inside the cottage. However, if you're spending time on days out, then that's not a problem. All said and done, we had a very lovely stay and wouldn't hesitate to rebook this cottage and recommend it to others.
"Lovely cottage with a super hot tub."
Everything fantastic, including the friendly, helpful owners.
"Loved the hot tub and peaceful surroundings."
The owners were very pleasant and have a beautiful cottage in a wonderful location.
"Excellent cottage and very friendly hosts."
Cottage was well equipped plus there were extras such as bathrobes. The welcome pack was unexpected with the eggs from the onsite hens. Lovely quiet retreat with dark skies and a sheltered hot tub. Even the car was safely undercover during the storms. Shops within easy reach and beaches accessible when you know how. Cottage very well equipped. Would certainly recommend.
"The peace and quiet and such a good location for bridlington , filey, Scarborough and hornsea ."
the owners were fantastic helpful the hot tub was an added bonus .
"This has been the best holiday ever."

Outside space great, great holiday.
"We loved the cottage with its hot tub and facilities."
Karen and Shaun are lovely people who would do anything for you. We loved the chickens and ducks and can’t forget Trampous the dog. The East Yorkshire coast, towns and villages were lovely. We will be back. Can’t recommend the cottage highly enough. No negative comments from us
"Yes , unfortunately although very clean , the week we stayed the owners was ..."
Yes , unfortunately although very clean , the week we stayed the owners was having a kitchen fitted , ( next door) being woke 3 mornings by drilling and screwing wasn’t the relaxing time I’d had in mind , to top that , the church on the other side of us was being renovated , roofers overlooking our hot tub afternoon in the sun wasn’t pleasant ,
"This is a lovely cottage with a very private hot tub which we loved."
The owners were hospitable, friendly and helpful. Great welcome basket with multi coloured eggs from their own chickens. We would certainly go back and would recommend it to our friends
"Everything in the cottage to make it home from home lovely and clean - comfy bed - lovely walk in shower - loads of equipment in the kitchen, pots/pans/cutlery ect."
The hot tub is fantastic so relaxing. Karen (the hostess) is so friendly and helpful she's just an all round nice person who made us feel very welcome, we would definitely go back again.
"As described on the tin!"
Ideal cottage for a short break. Clean and comfortable, and everything you need. Owner extremely helpful. Can recommend this one.
Friendly and welcoming owner. Accommodation excellent and hot tub brilliant. Will definitely go again.
"This is our second visit to this location and won't be our last We originally booked in January for my birthday and loved it so much we booked again for my wife's birthday."
Karen is so helpful. Shaun her husband is really kind as well We loved the Hot tub and the log fire and the comfortable seating in the lounge area The bedroom is great and the kitchen is well fitted with lots of cups and plates, cutlery and cooking utensils as well as pans etc - just like home from home etc Think there were about a dozen cups 8 large plates and small plates and dishes - Basically it is incredibly well equipped which is very good. Nice shower and a spacious bathroom The doorways between the rooms are quite low but MIND YOUR HEAD signs are well displayed!!! Dishwasher and washer in the property and Karen left us a couple of tablets for each as well as some eggs from their own hens - so really fresh eggs -beautiful We were there while the Beast from the East was in full flow and so there was lots of snow and it was very cold but we were warm inside We enjoyed the Hot tub, just fantastic sitting in the Hot tub with the snow falling!! There is undercover parking for the car and it all felt very safe and relaxed The property is actually attached to the owners bungalow It is really quiet and as there are no street lights its a dark sky area so the ability to star gaze is really good and we had some great sightings of the moon We took trips out to Hornsea, Bridlington and the time before we ventured up to Scarborough - all within easy travelling distance There are no shops in the village of Ulrome but just on the Hornsea road, couple of miles in Atwick, there is a local shop with a cash machine (free) and local shop provisions A couple of pubs around the area offer some good meals, Post box about a hundred yards down into the village. If you want to walk on the beach take the Bridlington road and then take the road to Fraisthorpe and from there you can walk to Brid, have a coffee and then walk back to your car! Highly recommended
"Great hosts lovely accommodation fantastic hot tub peaceful location ."
Hoped to get snowed in so we wouldn't have to leave !
"Absolutely beautiful property, literally in the middle of nowhere witch is what we wanted."
Fantastic hot tub that was used regularly during our visit. The owners were fantastic and very accommodating, they showed us how to work everything and had lots of information in the property about local attractions, supermarkets, shops, takeaways and petrol stations. The wood burner made the living room extereamley cosy on a winters night. We would defiantly recommend and visit again

Lots of little extras like lovely fluffy robes and a welcome pack of biscuits and eggs. Lovely facilities and will book again.

"We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at Willow Cottage."
The cottage itself was cosy and well equipped and the large private hot tub was superb. The hosts Sean and Karen managed to balance friendliness and guests privacy perfectly.

We will certainly be returning again.

Skipsea 1 mile.
This attractive, single-storey barn conversion adjoins the owner's property on the edge of the small village of Ulrome, one mile from the coastal village of Skipsea.
With all ground floor accommodation, it provides a lovely romantic retreat for couples wanting to explore the coastline, discover the Wolds and spend time visiting the large seaside resorts of Bridlington, Hornsea and Scarborough.
Offering a bright and cheerful open plan living area with exposed timbers, there is a well-equipped modern kitchen, a dining table and comfortable seating set around a cosy woodburner.
Furnished to a high standard throughout, the pretty bedroom leads off from the sitting area and the fully-tiled shower room has a large overhead shower.
To the rear, there is an enclosed and sheltered patio complete with its own private bubbling hot tub; a superb way to relax and unwind with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down!
Guests also have access to one acre of fields, with a pond and seating.
The surrounding area is ideal cycling country, with country lanes and trails to follow, while walkers will delight in the gently rolling hills of the Yorkshire Wolds.
Nearby, Skipsea caters for everyday needs and has access to the coast and beach, whilst the traditional seaside town of Hornsea lies just seven miles away.
It offers a fine promenade, ornamental gardens and Hornsea Mere, the largest glacial lake in Yorkshire, where one can partake in watersports, fishing and boating.
It is an easy drive to the stately homes of Sledmere House, Burton Agnes Hall and Burton Constable Hall, all worth visiting and a must is a day trip to the beautiful historic City of York.
A delightful and stylish property to come home to after a busy day.
About the location
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.
