“Gorgeous hideaway”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

What can I say ! Absolutely gorgeous secret hideaway. The cottage is amazing in its design inside , a little chintzy for my teenage son, but I loved it. It was a great home from home with everything thought about. Comprehensive directions and do's and don'ts from Tina before we left home, which are more than acceptable to keep the cottage looking as good as it does.
The cottage does not have parking but as Tina advised parking on road was easy enough.
Perfect base for visiting Hornsea, Beverley etc.
Just gorgeous cottage and hope to visit again

“A lovely little cottage; peaceful with all home comforts and a lovely garden”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

If your looking for somewhere to stay to get away from it all, then this is the place for you.

We stayed at Tawny Hoots during the last week of July and were delighted with our find. The cottage is traditional in style, with ample space for myself, husband and young teenage daughter, and is beautifully decorated & clean Whilst there is no wifi, if you need it The Swan pub (turn right out of the gate, walk about 100m and your there) has free wifi.

The garden is beautifully kept, with chairs and cushions available. The blackbirds gave us a treat most mornings by coming down and having a bath just outside the windows.

We received a phone call from the owner a few days before our stay with directions to the cottage, and key arrangements etc with a confirmation text on the day. All were spot on.

Seaton is a little village on the way to Hornsea, which is a traditional unspoilt seaside town (there is a large Tesco on the way to Hornsea Freeport) with lovely independent retailers. Perfectly situated for walking, visiting other seaside towns (Whitby was approx 1.45hrs away) and only an hour from York. We used the Park & Ride which was much easier than getting into town and parking. Bettys Tearoom is a must. And if you like a bracing walk, Spurn Head is the place to go.

The ONLY reason we marked the Kitchen & Utensils as Good rather than Great is that whilst all mod cons are provided (TV, washing machine, kettle, toaster and microwave) there were limited utensils for cooking and no obvious microwavable dishes. But then again, not everyone wants to cook on holiday:-)

We would gladly visit again.

“Peaceful and beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had a great week at Tawny Hoots Cottage. The interior and accommodation was faultless. Beautiful taste and not a spec of dirt in sight. The garden was a heaven of tranquility. There was lots to do in the surrounding areas and our favorite place was Hornsea Town, it was lovely. We came back feeling really well rested and would love to stay there again very soon.

“Ideal Retreat”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We spent 1 week in this cottage and it was the perfect end to a very hectic trip. The garden is private with lots of wild life and the cottage very comfortable a proper home from home
