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.

    This was my second visit to The Bolthole and definitely not my last! It is without doubt one of the very best holiday homes for one or two people I have experienced. Caroline and Mark have nailed every area that is important to anyone when on holiday. It is a most relaxing location with those extra special touches such as fluffy towels and robes, the most wonderfully comfortable 7ft bed. Great books and CDs to entertain and easy care interior. The welcome pack needs a paragraph all to itself! There is a box of goodies which are local produce as much as possible. Then you will find the fridge stocked with milk, butter and bottled water too. It is in a great location because you have the rural peace and quite but it is only 30-40 minutes to the coast or the beautiful city of York. It is quite simply the best!

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Bolthole. The standard of accommodation is excellent. The welcome pack was lovely. Caroline’s flower arrangement of fresh lilies was amazing. The owners had catered for everything and the large bed was to die for. We can’t wait to return.

    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.
