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.

Beautiful cottage, great location, highly recommended
Just spent a week in this beautifully converted cottage. Took my elderly mother who had her own private downstairs bedroom and bathroom with a further two large double en-suite rooms upstairs very spacious and the comfiest beds in a holiday let we?ve ever slept in, lovely outside space, although no actual garden the cottage has a decent sized patio area with fields as far as the eye can see and beautiful views the lambs kept my border collie entertained the whole week (safely enclosed on the right side of the fence) a parasol on the outside table would?ve been a welcome addition as we were lucky enough to have some very hot weather and at almost 80 my mum did have to stay indoors as there was no shade, the location of the cottage was fantastic only around a 15 minute drive to Driffield where you can find a decent sized Tesco amongst lots of other shops or 30 mins to Scarborough where there is a large Morrisons, only 30 mins to flamingo land and 30-40 mins to the park & ride to York. The cottage itself has large open plan downstairs which made it very social whilst cooking dinner and such a well equipped kitchen including a slow cooker which was fab to come back to after a long day out, the owner was very pleasant and was in touch to make sure everything was fine without being invasive and also left some goodies on our arrival which was a lovely touch. I would 100% recommend this property if you?re looking for a holiday rental in this area then look no further you won?t be disappointed... and we will definitely return in the future.

Well equipped stylish comfortable cottage good for a family get together and well placed for city county and coast.
A stylish, comfortable, converted fire engine shed! Located in the gentile private Estate of Sledmere with the grand house, extensive grounds and lovely farm shop and cafe just a 10 minute walk around the corner. Not forgetting the very traditional Triton Inn (strap line "unspoilt by progress!") in easy reach and definitely worth a visit, excellent gin & tonics! The cottage is one of four, quite close together but not overlooking each other. The views from the back over rolling fields with gambolling lambs make up for the lack of outside space - there is a patio area with table and sunshade. On arrival there was a bottle of wine which was a lovely touch and the owner Catherine had been in touch the day before to wish us a good trip. The cottage was very clean and tidy with a nice open plan space downstairs which makes this a great place for a family or group get together and can accommodate six with plenty of room. The kitchen is very well equipped with good quality items and even a slow cooker. The upstairs ensuite bedrooms are large, light and have. comfortable beds. Lots of hanging space, bathrobes, a TV in two bedrooms and hairdryers provided. A chest of drawers and a full length mirror would be welcome additions to the bedrooms. We really enjoyed our week and felt very at home. I can certainly recommend this cottage and would visit again.

Best equipped so far
We arrived to a group of cottages that were clearly sign posted, ample parking and a welcome gift of snacks and wine, always a winner with us. The cottage itself was huge with open kitchen, diner and lounge, 3 bedrooms, 2 of which had ensuite bathrooms with the 3rd haveing a bathroom opposite. The kitchen was quite honestly better equipped than mine at home. It is located in Sledmere, about 15 minutes from Driffield and 45 minutes from York. You can get to Bridlington pretty handy if you fancy a boat trip and there is plenty of countryside if you fancy a stroll. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in the area, look no further.

Luxurious accomodation for multi-generational family group
Engine Room provided an ideal break for three generations, six people and dog but it never felt crowded. The accommodation is spacious and well organised. It is fully and thoughtfully stocked with all amenities. The view from the back is spectacular and we were able to watch new born lambs jump about. Even in a spectacularly wet Easter week we were able to find plenty to do: Sledmere House is fascinating to visit (read the book by the present baronet's younger brother) and the farm shop and the Triton Inn are great assets.
