Description

For that romantic getaway escape to this wonderful holiday property, brimming with character in a countryside location.

Visit England ROSE award winner 2017

For that romantic getaway, The Bolthole is just the place. An idyllic, one bedroom, detached, characterful eclectic cottage situated on the owners’ smallholding in the village of Tibthorpe, with rare breed sheep and hens just outside the door, you really are in the countryside. The cottage has been renovated by the present owners, with great care and attention to detail, with an emphasis on Yorkshire and British made products where possible. A lot of thought has gone into the environment and the owners have taken the extra steps to respect this. With the underfloor heating and a cosy wood-burning stove, it is a superb place to come back to after a long day cycling, walking, bird watching at Bempton or a day out visiting East and North Yorkshire. Being situated in The Wolds, the cottage offers excellent access to countryside walks and cycle routes, with its rolling hills and magnificent unspoiled scenery, which is why the renowned artist David Hockney was inspired to do paintings of the local area. You can follow the Hockney Trail and see the locations of some of his greatest artwork. The market towns of Driffield, Beverley and Malton are just a short drive away, where the vibrant markets selling local produce are very popular both with the tourists and the locals. The traditional seaside resorts of Scarborough, Filey, Bridlington and Whitby are ideal for day trips. Hull, voted the UK City of Culture 2017, is only twenty miles away, with a vast array of entertainment venues, museums and park. The medieval city of York is only 26 miles away.
In the area, there are plenty of stately homes that are well worth a visit, such as Castle Howard, Sledmere, Burton Agnes Hall and Sewerby Hall. All have a fascinating history and wonderful gardens to walk around. The spectacular Lavender Gardens have won many awards as being the most inspiring gardens to visit in Yorkshire! The magnificent scenery, beautiful market towns, outstanding country houses and sweeping coastline ensure that many visitors return year after year. Beach 15 miles. Shop and restaurant 1½ miles, pub 4 miles.

Two steps to entrance hall. Large, open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove and kitchen area. One step down to double bedroom with 7ft hand-made bed. Shower room with toilet.

    The Bolthole is a very spacious and thoughtfully designed cottage for two - an enormous and most comfortable bed plus top quality fixtures and fittings made it a relaxing pleasure to stay here. It is very quiet and secluded yet ideally placed to explore East Yorks being centrally located with easy access to the main roads. Very highly recommended.

    I would challenge anyone to go to The Bolthole and not be bowled over by the place. Caroline and Marks' generosity is unsurpassed! Yorkshire is a county that keeps on giving, and you will not be better placed to experience its diversity than to stay at The Bolthole. A little gem! Angela

    A beautiful cottage perfect for relaxing and getting away from it all. My husband and I had our baby moon here and enjoyed an incredible amount of sleep in such peaceful surroundings (the 7 ft bed helped!). Caroline was so accommodating and friendly. We'll definitely return.

    The bolthole is a lovely little cottage which me and my partner stayed at for a week over the new years eve period, thoroughly enjoying our time there. The owners are really nice and clearly put a lot of time and care into making sure the cottage and experience are perfect. The location itself is incredibly peaceful, Tibthorpe is a tiny village surrounded by countryside, making it ideal for walkers. The heating and log burner in the house as well mean that when you get in from long treks out, you can sit, relax, warm up and get your dinner on the go. The cottage itself was a beautiful mix of modern design and rustic aesthetics, the open plan kitchen was great for chilled out evenings of getting dinner sorted whilst watching TV (Which has built in Netflix) and the huge bedroom was lovely to settle into at night. York is only around 45 minutes away, as is the York designer outlet, both of which are great places to go and have a day trip at. There are numerous walking routes highlighted in the guide book as well that the owners have put together for you, which details everything from places of interest to where they best recommend getting a takeaway if you can't be bothered to cook! In summary, we loved our week there and were dreading having to go home in the end, we would definitely go back and would encourage others to go there themselves, an amazing cottage with really thoughtful and nice owners.
