  • A beautiful holiday cottage for two, set in a lovely secluded riverside spot
  • Ideal for keen walkers, cyclists and nature-lovers, you can enjoy miles of tranquil river and rural walks
  • Explore the quaint villages of Howdenshire and local towns Beverly, Goole and York are great daytrips
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

  • Gas hob, oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave

A cosy, comfortable cottage. Everything you need is provided. A good location to explore the less visited parts of Yorkshire. Howden is a charming little town nearby but you can also travel to Hull and Beverley.

The cottage is in a pretty remote area which suited us as we wanted to get away from everything and every one. It is in an excellent position for walking along the river ouse and other public footpaths. it has a nice little sitting area outside weather permitting. Ample parking. The owner, farmer was really nice and he stood and chatted a few occasRead moreions between his busy schedule. He was well up on the areas history and i found it quite fasinating. Hide

Yew Tree gave us all we needed for us and our dog. We had to leave due to wifes illness so never got to explore. You are on a working farm so can get traffic. Owners helpful

We stayed here with our dog and baby, it was a lovely quiet and remote location. We went on some lovely dog walks and explored nearby areas which were only a short drive away. The local pub in the next village did amazing home cooked food, we went there twice during our week's stay. The cottage was spotless and had everything that you could need.

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
