Beautiful - Excellent standard and good location.
We had a lovely week staying at Lilliput Lodge - home from home. We were greeted by the owner on arrival who showed us around the property. We were welcomed with a bottle of milk in the fridge,tea, coffee and sugar. He was very knowledgable about the local area and facilities - he told us about the local pub, the nearby Pocklington Canal, walks along the canal and directions to get to it. The property itself has everything you could possibly need, and was spotlessly clean. One double bedroom upstairs with a wet/shower room and a twin bedroom on the ground floor also with an adjacent wet/shower room. These wet rooms were amazing with underfloor heating and very spacious shower spaces. The kitchen is well equipped with fridge/freezer, double oven, hob, microwave,washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. There is even a food processor. The spacious lounge area with good seating, TV and DVD player is a real sun trap, the fans provided by the owner were much appreciated. It also has WiFi Internet. The owner had also provided a selection of DVD's, books, board games, jigsaw's and up to date leaflets and booklets on the local area and places to visit. The property is in a good location for Holiday makers. The Melbourne Arms is a 20min walk away and serves excellent food and is highly recommended, pre book for Sunday Lunch as it is very popular with the locals. A mobile Fish and Chip van parks at the Village Hall on a Thursday evening and serves good quality fresh fish and chips. Pocklington Canal is pleasant to walk along. The York Maze and Yorkshire Air Museum are a short distance up the road. York is a must to visit, use Grimston Bar Park and Ride for convenience. Highly recommended and one of the best properties we have stayed in.

A very nice Christmas in Yorkshire.
I noticed the heading said Melbourne, Derbyshire although the photo is of Lillieput Lodge Melbourne in the East Riding of Yorkshire. A warm welcome from the owners. A very comfortable stay and everything we needed for a great Christmas. Lovely and quiet and in the countryside. I'm afraid we can't comment on any local sightseeing as it was something of a very wet end to the year so we just stayed inside and kept nice and dry and warm.

The cottage was lovely and spacious and was well presented and spotlessly clean. There was everything you could need. The shower rooms were gorgeous and it was a bonus having two of them. The village has a small local shop and the pub serves great food.

Fantastic cottage with everything you need and more
We stayed at Liiiput Lodge with our friend for four nights over the new year period. The cottage is immaculately presented, very spacious and spotlessly clean. There is all the equipment you could ever need and plenty of it. It's ideal for friends as it has a downstairs bedroom and a fantastic shower room which is repeated upstairs. The owners also live on site so are there to help if necessary. The Melbourne Arms in the village serves excellent food and the village shop is very handy. There are also plenty of shops and a couple of supermarkets in nearby Pocklington. We visited the coast which is about an hour away and had a good day out in Beverley. We hope to return, maybe in the springtime and bring out bikes with us at the quiet, flat roads would make for excellent cycling. Thanks Erica and Graham, we will be back.

We have stayed at Lillieput Lodge before, and it is a fantastic place to stay, the bathrooms are lovely, with large walk in showers in each. The wood burning stove in the lounge is really good.
