Having just returned from a short but sweet stay at the cottage we would highly recommend this cottage to friends and family. It is so cute and Helen and Patrick the owners certainly go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. We had one or two days of decent weather so were able to sit outside and listen to the birds and on one occasion it was a delight to find Helen playing the piano - keep it up Helen it was really lovely.

The booking process was easy and Helen answered any questions we had beforehand.

As has been said before it is a delightful little cottage for 2 with every amenity that is required. There is plenty of pots and pans and utensils if you want to cook in. The bed was so comfortable that we found it very hard to get out of in the morning. Every bit of the cottage is spotlessly clean and the icing on the cake was the log burner which we lit on one occasion. We are coming back in the winter and will look forward to lighting this again in the colder months.

The courtyard garden is also the parking space for your car so you dont have to worry about finding parking spaces if you go out and come back although we left the car there and travelled by bus everywhere.

We cannot really add as what has been said before except to say that Pocklington is a delightful town with a lot more eateries for eating out than we thought. We ate at the Station Hotel one night and I can honestly say it was one of the best meals we have had for a long time and inexpensive. The Coffee Bean is also worth a try for a delicious cake and coffee.

Helen and Patrick your warmth shone through when we met you and no doubt you will see us again. You made us feel very welcome and no doubt your little cottage will give you lots of success in the future.

“Excellent hideaway for two in Pocklington”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had a far too short stay in Carpenter's Cottage. Really comfortable and well furnished in a modern and tasteful way. Bright and cosy, this cottage is really close to shops and takeaways on a surprisingly quiet street. Helen made us very welcome and was very helpful. If you are looking for a perfect way to visit York without staying in the city - this cottage is perfect for two.

“A great little cottage, friendly owner”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at Carpenter's cottage over the Easter break - the owner was very helpful, everything we needed was provided. The cottage is nice and compact, set on a quiet street that is near Pocklington High street, and an easy drive from York. Just what we needed.
Thank you!

“The owners' description is spot on, cosy and comfortable.”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Exactly as it says, cosy, comfortable and close to the town centre. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Have stayed here several times when visiting our daughter and family. Always a good experience.
