Wonderful family break
We booked Engine Room Cottage for our half term break with our children and my parents. The owner Catherine was so helpful before we booked, giving us recommendations and tips for days out. We knew it was somewhere special when we were greeted with a lovely handwritten note addressed to everyone and some treats on arrival!! This place was a delightful home away from home. It had everything we could possibly need, and was immaculately clean. A lovely little touch are the bath robes in each of the rooms. There were 6 of us plus a toddler, but the cottage felt so spacious we were never stepping on each other's toes. The open plan living/dining/kitchen area was wonderful for spending time together as a family - there were many happy hours around it's large dining table playing games and eating! Sledmere House, which was a short walk away, was a big hit with our kids with the animals and adventure playground. There is also a pub round the corner called The Triton where we had a lovely meal. The house was a great base for exploring the East coast, and we hope to be back again soon.

The Perfect Wolds Retreat
As soon as we arrived at The Engine Room, We were impressed by the light-filled, spacious and comfortable rooms. There is every facility you need for a lovely break from everyday routine. We spent happy hours at the nearby coast and Sledmere House - literally across the road, has lovely gardens, shops and cafe. You will not be disappointed. I am sure we will be back! Thanks Catherine

What A Magical Christmas We Had!!
How can I even begin to describe what a wonderful time we had at the Engine Room?? From the minute we arrived it felt like home, it's the tiniest things that make such a huge difference! The games, the DVDs, the torch for late night or early morning dog walks! Everything was thought of and it was fantastic! Catherine has been an absolute pleasure to deal with and has kept in contact on a regular basis, nothing has been too much trouble. The cottage was spotless on arrival with beautiful bedding and sumptuous bath robes and towels. We didn't even have to bring our own high chair or travel cot which was a huge bonus when both cars were absolutely overflowing already ??? I couldn't rate The Engine Room any higher and would recommend to everyone. Our 3 children 16 month old, 4 year old and 7 year old had the best time and were convinced that the 3 sheep in the field came to see them on a regular basis and would wait for them! Our 83 year old Nana also came and had the most relaxing time! Thank you so so much for everything and for helping us create magical memories that will last a life time! We CANNOT wait to come back! P.s our children have insisted that we now purchase bean bags as they loved them that much!!!

Back again for another stay
We were so happy to return to this lovely house, a home from home with a feeling of space and luxury throughout, yet friendly, cosy and welcoming. Each double bedroom has a spacious well-appointed bathroom so that there were no queues for the showers. Even though the December weather was not particularly kind to us, we were cosy and warm all weekend and we appreciated the soft towelling dressing gowns provided. We enjoyed a walk in the spectacular grounds of Sledmere house which are right across the road from the Engine Room, we shopped in their farm shop and Christmas shop, and we walked along the expansive beach towards Filey. I'm already looking forward to returning again soon.

Welcoming, cozy, beautifully presented and well equipped cottage in a fantastic location
Just back from a return visit to Engine Room Cottage and once again it exceeded expectation! The open plan lounge/kitchen area makes the cottage very sociable (there's an extra fridge for wine if needed!), the kitchen is really well equipped and the sofa's are really comfortable. Slept really well, the beds are very snugly, and it's great to have 3 bathrooms. A bedroom downstairs proved very handy too! The village has a very welcoming pub serving delicious food and there's Sledmere House and gardens on the doorstep if you fancy a local walk and visit to the cafe, farm shop and gift shop (entry free courtesy of membership card that comes with the cottage). Lots of other local walks and only a short drive to some amazing beaches and seaside towns. Couldn't ask for more, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will definitely be back.
