    Wonderful view, directly over the village green. 2 mins from the village pub. Easy to get to coast, situated in the beautiful Wolds, and other charming villages, pleasant walks (the Wolds Way passes not too far away, you can walk to it. Easy ride to Scarborough, York and other towns such as Filey, Beverley, Driffield, Bridlington.

  • "Just returned from a 2 week stay at Humble Bee Cottage."

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, both in the area and especially the Cottage. The property is very roomy, comfortable, thoughtfully decorated like a well-kept family home rather than a holiday rental with quality fittings. Fully equipped with everything we needed, especially as we needed to self cater more than most renters would. Met Fiona several times, very helpful and pleasant, nothing too much trouble, has made an excellent job of setting up the property for holiday rental. Nice location and we intend to return to the property and area.

  • "The Cottage was extremely clean and modern."

    Plenty of space & very well equipped. It was a good base for car journeys to Filey, Bridlington, Whitby, Scarborough, Robin Hoods Bay, Pickering & York. Plenty to do and see. The Hamlet has a pub which offers good value for money meals. There isn't a village shop, so the complimentary welcome items of food & drink from the owner were much appreciated on arrival. Would highly recommend.

    . Exactly as described and spotlessly clean. It’s definitely the best cottage we have stayed in for quality, comfort and cleanliness. The owners have thought of and included absolutely everything needed to make it so cosy and comfortable. Every fitting and fixture is of such high quality, and the beds are so comfy. Bathroom is so big! All the rooms are so spacious light and so warm. There is a brochure with every single appliance instructions. Also a lovely safe garden and parking.

    Had all we needed. Host was welcoming and left welcome gifts which was a kind and thoughtful gesture. You really need to be able to drive to stay here as it is in a very rural location. Many places are nearby, by car like Scarborough, Whitby and York. The only downside for us was we found the beds very hard and struggled to sleep at first because of this. If you like a softer bed I recommend bringing your own mattress topper.

    It was so peaceful, relaxing, spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Fiona, the host had thought of everything you need for a perfect holiday. All Covid safety precautions were in place. Lovely quiet village, with only a public house, which we visited only once on day of arrival, good food. A shop was a few miles away. Close by were Filey, Bridlington, Scarborough and Flamborough Head. Would definately recommend to family and friends.

    It was very comfortable, well equipped and extremely clean. A real home from home. It was nice to wander around the village in the evenings and look at the geese and goslings on the village pond. We explored the surrounding area - beautiful beach at Filey and walked the clifftop paths at Flamborough Head and Bempton which is full of nesting bird colonies. Another lovely day out was to Sewerby Hall (gardens and zoo only due to Covid restrictions) where we caught a little train to Bridlington and walked back along the clifftop. A lovely part of the country and we hope to return. Apparently the village pub is very good but closed during our stay. Another reason to visit again!
