A welcome return
We last visited the engine room when Catherine, the current host, had literally taken over the keys less than a week before our visit. So, it was great to see the changes and the love that had been put back into the cottage! It really is wonderful. We cannot recommend it highly enough. There is everything you need and more. It's kept immaculately clean, cosy, homely but so spacious. The cottage is well situated, a great outlook out onto fields, tranquil and beautiful. It's walking distance to a lovely gastropub and to Sledmere house. Short drive to the coast and lots of local walks. We have had a fabulous time and we're now checking our diaries for our next visit!

This Place Has A Glow All Of Its Own
"When we pay attention to detail, the big picture will take care of itself." George St-Pierre. This former fire station ignites a spark as soon as you step through the door. It's been lovingly renovated into the most fabulous cottage. An intoxicating mix of old and new have been artfully combined to create luxury, warmth and comfort. The three things I look for when I go on holiday. I went on a trip back in time with my mum, to visit the world famous Yorkshire coast, and Sledmere in the Yorkshire Wolds was the perfect location. We set off on a daily basis for places like Filey, Scarborough and Bridlington to take in the seaside air, walking on the cliff tops and sandy beaches. We sampled mouth-watering food in the villages of Driffield and Malton, and got back each evening to unwind in our lovely cottage with breath taking views of the rolling green hills. If I'm honest it is the attention to detail in the cottage that thrilled me the most. Catherine, the owner, has thought of everything. Favourites were the comfy beds, the pillow menu, the fluffy bathrobes, the twinkling red lights, the large sofas, the TV with Freeview, the books, the DVDs and the all important Wi-Fi. We intend to return in the summer to sit on the patio and watch the sun set in this quiet and pretty rural village. Thank you Catherine for some great memories . "To Travel is To Live."

Amazingly comfortable
This cottage is so comfortable, plenty of space and a real 5 star experience. Located in a part of Yorkshire that is a hidden gem. Lots to do and see. The local area is just beautiful, rolling fields and wide verges. Sledmere's history gives a feeling of romance and days gone by. Catherine is a superb host and we cant wait to go again

Me and my five children had the most amazing time staying here, the cottage was clean, comfortable and spacious. There was everything you'd need to be relaxed, Catherine really has done a terrific job in making it feel like home away from home. We will definitely be returning. Highly recommend.

Wonderful wedding week
We could not have asked for a nicer or more comfortable place! The Engine Room Cottage is a real home away from home; it is tastefully and comfortably furnished, spacious and very well equipped. We had the most wonderful stay and would recommend it without reserve. It was a great place for us to have our two pups, as the garden is enclosed and perfect area for them to play and stare at all the sheep! It is easily one of the most lovely places we have stayed at! Stunning views and comfortable seating inside and out! Catherine was so helpful and accommodating, welcoming us with a celebratory champers! This was the perfect place for all my family and friends to share special memories together and with us during our Wedding week at Sledmere! Thank you, we will definitely be back!
