This is an extremely nice little cottage, which has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The owners are very welcoming and make sure you are happy. I strongly recommend it.

“Brilliant stay in Carpenters Cottage”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Would highly recommend this cottage. If you are thinking about it go for it. Everything you need in very cosy cottage and very warm welcome from Helen and Patrick. The hand made furniture made by the owner and stained glass window in the bedroom are particular features. Also the lovely log burning stove. We would certainly return.

“Very comfortable and convenient”

First time in Pocklington and certainly not the last. Carpenter's Cottage is superbly appointed and a great place to relax. It is extremely convenient for the village centre, being only a 2 minute walk away. The facilities are very good - we made full use of the secure bike store. The internet speed was quick and reliable.Plenty of hot water and the comfy underfloor heating was excellent. It's a shame it wasn't cold enough to have used the log burning stove! The valuable off-street parking included at Carpenter's Cottage should be mentioned as without this, parking elsewhere would have been a bit awkward.

Regarding Pocklington itself, then it has most things one could possibly want or need. There is a wide range of eateries and shops. The shops range from independent family owned establishments to well known firms such as Aldi, Sainsburys, Co-operative, and Costa, but the latter do not impinge on the lovely charm of the village. There are lots of little cafes and restaurants, and some great pubs serving real ales.

We chose Pocklington as a base for our visit to the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire bike race. This proved a great move as it is in easy reach of the east coast, York, Selby, and Beverley. The area is very good for bike riding. We did quite a bit of road cycling - there is the option of pan flat rides, or you can find some quite challenging hills. The back roads are very quiet and mostly well maintained. For the off-road cyclist there is the nearby Dalby Forest which we understand is very good for mountain biking.

To put it in a nutshell, if you want to wind down from the stresses of a busy life, then Carpenter's Cottage is the place to come. We will be back.
