Fabulous 5* accommodation
From the moment we walked in we felt at home in this beautiful, spacious cottage. Everything you need for a comfortable relaxing stay has been provided. Lovely unexpected touches such as the fluffy white robes all help to make you feel welcome in this home from home . It is a brilliant social space and ideal for get togethers for families or friends with plenty of room for everyone. No awkward?who is going to have the worst bedroom? as all three are beautiful and the bathrooms superb. The location is ideal for exploring the Wolds with so much to see and do in the area. I cannot recommend highly enough. Book your escape to this Yorkshire treasure and I promise you won?t be disappointed.

Spacious and welcoming with views over the meadows
There was a really welcoming feel as we came into the huge open plan kitchen, dining and living area and although it was cold outside the house was cosy throughout our stay. The kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped and there is attention to detail everywhere with nice touches such as the provision of fluffy white bath robes. We ate at the excellent Triton Inn in the village on the first day and we liked it so much we returned again the next day. We stayed three nights and visited the Sledmere Christmas craft and food fair five minutes walk away, and the Malton Christmas fair the next day, a short drive away. It was very quiet in the cottage and I especially liked waking to the view of green fields with grazing sheep at the back. It is only a short drive to the coast so we will definitely return again to explore the cliffs, coves and beaches of the region.

Somewhere to lower your blood pressure for sure!
The Engine Room is a beautifully converted fire station, with memorabilia discretely placed. It is immaculately kept, with a very well thought out open plan living room, a very well equipped kitchen and (unlike other similar accommodation) has 3 bath/shower rooms alongside 3 good sized bedrooms. It is a stone's throw away from Sledmere House and its surrounding gardens and farm shop. The village itself is delightful with a very nice pub (The Triton). A short drive away is the market town of Malton, ample walks for the fit and not-so-fit. I could not recommend ER highly enough.

Beautiful Cottage
Have just returned from a fabulous stay at The Engine Room Cottage, the cottage itself is faultless, everything a guest would need is catered for by the owners and the place is spotlessy clean and beautifully decorated. We will be returning next year as want to explore North Yorkshire a bit more, a wet day in York and a windy day in Scarborough was all we fitted in, however even the weather couldn't dampen our spirits.

Beautiful Cottage
The engine room cottage is a lovely specious and well equipped. With 3 generous bedrooms 2 with ensuite spotless clean a large open plan living area with a kitchen that wanted for nothing. The whole cottage had a cosy comfortable atmosphere and the surrounding countryside was a added bonus I will certainly miss the view from my bedroom window definitely. It is also a great base to visit the many attractions Scarborough, Bridlington, York etc also I would recommend a visit to the beautiful sledmere house and grounds and a cheeky drink or two in the triton pub 10 minutes walk up the road. I would highly recommend this cottage and Catherine the owner will definitely consider coming back soon.
