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.

    The Bolthole provides a touch of luxury. The owner provides a welcome hamper which is excellent with many of the items locally sourced.

    Found East Yorkshire beautiful regardless of rain. Couldn’t fault the property, it is very well equipped, and the hosts were lovely, so friendly and welcoming on arrival, the box of goodies provided was amazing. If the weather had been better we could have lounged outside, and made use of the barbecue. However, fantastic gastro pubs close by, recommend by our hosts.

    This is out third visit to The Bolthole and won't be our last. There are a number of reasons we use it as a base - comfort, location, the standard of the cottage and proximity to a number of good sites for birding. RSPB Bempton Cliffs to the north of Bridlington is a prime location for seabirds during the nesting season - Gannets, Puffins, Razorbills, Guillemots and Kittiwakes. Top Hill Low reservoir owned by Yorkshire Water is a good location for wildfowl, waders and woodland species. Askham Bogs, just off the York ring road and close to the race course is a small site owned by the YWT and during visits there Jay and Great Spotted Woodpecker have been the highlights. Hornsea Mere is well worth a visit for a range of waterfowl and can be combined with sea watching from the beach. The roadbeds around the Mere provide breeding sites for Reed Warblers. Further afield, RSPB Blacktoft Sands on the south side of the Humber Estuary has a range of waders, warblers and raptors. RSPB Fairburn Ings between Leeds and York, is an important site for breeding and wintering wildfowl, especially Gadwalls. Both sites are well worth visiting.

    Lovely welcome and food hamper of local produce. Beautifully finished to a very high standard. The bed is amazing. The only tiny negative is that the flooring is really hard on your bare feet. Made of natural fibres ( possibly coconut husk ) wish we’d brought slippers to replace our shoes when we removed them at the front door.
