Property code: G0181

Set in a beautiful riverside location on a 100-acre private estate, this elegant cottage makes a perfect romantic retreat for a couple seeking to explore the glorious North Yorkshire countryside.

Looking for a spot for a romantic trip with your partner and pets? A stay at this homely bungalow in East Riding will soon set tails a-wagging. Located on the River Ouse and a whisker away from the mighty Humber estuary (7 miles), it’s perfect for long, watery walks you’ll all adore. This love nest is on the same site as two other properties, which you may consider renting out too if you’re holidaying with friends.

This cosy single-level cottage is perfect for spending some quality time with your loved one and pets. The open-plan living space has a well-equipped contemporary kitchen, dining area and lounge for you all to relax in. After long days out exploring, snuggle up on the sofa while the dogs warm their fur contentedly by the wood burner. The garden will be a hit in warmer weather – sizzle up a feast on the BBQ, then enjoy a fresh-air dinner on the decked patio area.

The house is in a riverside spot just 1 mile from a dog-friendly pub in Laxton. Miles of scenic trails through the beautiful Howdenshire countryside start from your front door. The market town of Howden (4.5 miles) is worth visiting; have a look round the shops then go for tea and cake in a dog-friendly cafe. The 8.5-mile walk from Yokefleet (4 miles) to Faxfleet (7 miles) takes you across flat land and embankments of the Trans Pennine Trail – perfect stick-throwing territory, we say. There’s an RSPB reserve on the opposite riverbank so you may spot some rare species (as long as the dogs stay calm, that is).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 1 bedroom with super-king-size bed which can be made up as twin beds on request
  • 1 bathroom with bath, walk-in shower and WC
  • Gas hob, oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave
  • TV, DVD, wood burner
  • Garden with BBQ, patio and furniture
  • Ample off-road parking
  • 2 dogs welcome - dog crate provided within the property
  • Wi-fi included
  • Pub within 1.5 miles
  • Shop within 4.5 miles
  • Goole 7 miles
  • Ample parking beside the property

The cottage has a beautiful rural location set close to 100 acres of private park and farmland between the River Ouse and wood in Howdenshire. There are lots of gorgeous river and parkland walks from the doorstep and you are surrounded by lush green landscapes at every turn.

 

Set right by the river, you can watch the tall masts of ships passing by on their way up the river to Goole. It's so peaceful here you just won't want to leave. There are wide paths for walkers/riders around the park and we recommend the river walk along to Blacktoft to the local pubs for a bite of lunch before trying out some of the other walks available.

 

There are lots of lovely country pubs in the area, including great options within walking distance of the cottage. If you feel like dining in, we recommend the short trip to the charming market town of Howden which is approximately 4.5 miles away with its ancient streets, lovely shops, cafes, wine bars, a heritage centre and historical buildings to explore. Stock up on the finest Yorkshire produce here, from excellent home-made bread to the most amazing pies and cakes. While you're there it would be a shame not to stop and enjoy a cup of tea and something sweet!

 

Howden is an ideal base from which to explore all that this area of Yorkshire has to offer and you may even spot the tower of Howden Minster from the cottage. The cottage is perfectly placed to explore medieval York, 24 miles, the Wolds to the east and if you’re in the mood for a longer drive, the North York Moors is around 52 miles to the north. Staying more local, the beautiful city of Beverley is 22 miles from the cottage. Explore the stunning Beverley Minster before indulging in a spot of shopping around its lively cobbled squares.

 

Further east, get to know the gorgeous Yorkshire Wolds, a range of low rolling hills rising from the river Humber and sweeping along to the stunning cliffs at Flamborough Head. This landscape was an inspiration to David Hockney with much of his work based on the countryside here. You can follow the Hockney Trail to discover the setting of some his more famous works. Keen golfers will enjoy the local course just 5 miles away and the gentle nature of the countryside here makes it an excellent location for walking and cycling.

 

The Wolds are also home to many historical homes and religious sites as well as one of Yorkshire's largest lavender gardens. For kids there are heaps of fantastic attractions nearby (indoor and out) including the excellent Yorkshire Wildlife Park (26 miles) and The Deep in Hull (30 miles). Nearby Hull is also the 2017 UK City of Culture and offers much to the discerning visitor in terms of the Arts and other attraction.

 

If you enjoy a spot of twitching, you're in heaven here with many excellent bird watching sites within easy reach. Try North Cave Wetlands situated 14.5 miles away, or Saltmarshe and Ferrybridge (25 miles) for starters.

A lovely cottage in a quiet location, very peaceful. We had some great walks with the dog on the side of the river Ouse. It is on farm property so a little bit of traffic but nothing that bothered us. The hosts were brilliant, lively people.

Fantastic property in a beautiful tranquil location. Dog friendly owners who were happy to help with anything, and had left us a delicious home made cake upon arrival. Plenty of walks on the doorstep (and an approx 1.75 mile walk to the next village of Laxton with a lovely dog friendly pub - open from 17:00) The River Ouse is adjacent to the cottagRead moree and provided a great walk along the banks. Bed was huge and comfortable! We will definitely return. Hide

Beautiful place to stay the cottage is very nicely decorated the fixtures are high end the bed is very comfortable. We were greeted with a lovely cake a bottle of wine milk tea and coffee. Perfect for dog walks as right next to the river although there is quite a steep bank to walk up to get on the path. The cottage is completely seperate from otheRead morer units which was good for us as our dog is a little bit reactive and will bark at strange noises. Hide

Our second visit to this property and the owners are a delightful couple who are helpful when needed but leave you alone to explore the surrounding area(s). lovely walks on the doorstep and The Kitchen in Howden is a true must do place to eat during the day.

Clean and quiet location with walks within the grounds and along the adjacent river bank. We found a circular walk about 2 miles in length which we started every day off with and our dogs loved it. (Not sure the resident pheasants enjoyed it quite as much) Very welcoming and dog friendly pub within walking distance along quiet lanes. Greeted shortlRead morey after arrival by the host to check all was as expected, as well as turning up to a VERY nice cake, bottle of wine and some unexpected essentials. Hide
