Could have been cleaner lots of cobwebs and dust in the wardrobes and drawers needs updating, small bottle of milk on arrival plus a bottle of prosseco, set times for the pool would have been nice to use in the evenings No tourist information leaflets maybe due to covid as long as your not to particular nice place to stay central to most places

Lovely week spent at Wolds Way Cottage, it was just what we needed, clean, spacious, cosy, had a real homely feel. Took our one year old basset for his first holiday and the cottage had its own walled patio area where he was safe to run around in and we felt he had a wonderful time too. A very quiet, peaceful place to stay, amazing gardens, swimminRead moreg pool and tennis court, we made use of all that was on offer, surrounding area was lovely and lots of places to visit. Would be going back again. Hide

We stayed at Wolds Way using it as a base to explore the the local area. It's well situated with Hull, Beverley, Bridlington and a few other towns within a reasonably short drive. The cottage itself is very clean and comfortable with all the facilities you need. We made good use of the swimming pool and tennis court and were blessed with good weathRead moreer. The on site wifi was a bonus for the evenings for our 2 teenage sons. We would definitely consider returning. Hide

The cottage was traditional but with all necessary modern amenities. We enjoyed using the swimming pool and the barbecue. The family who owns the cottage were very kind and welcoming and responded immediately if we needed any help. There are so many lovely places to visit in the area.

The check-in procedure needs amending. We didn't receive an email until we were travelling up to Yorkshire from the owner, explaining things. When we got there, there was no-one in sight so we ended up going into the wrong cottage for about 2.5 hours until we got turfed out by the owner, who, incidentally, didn't even ring on the doorbell, he just Read morebarged in. He came to apologise for the confusion later, however. Hide
