Style and scenery in a pretty East Yorkshire village. A log stove, large lawn, luxurious rooms...and Victoria makes families feel at home

Read guest comments

If the Edwardian gatehouse to Hotham Hall makes a handsome base for exploring East Yorkshire, its setting – an enchanting Wolds village near historic towns, good eateries and trails – inspires. Charming Victoria makes scrumptious lemon drizzle cake with home-laid eggs and has a magpie's eye at auctions: a kitchen table from a York library, a painted chest by squishy cream sofas, quirky ceramics, ornaments in alcoves, and bright gingham blinds for floodlit windows. Cook sociably at a six-ring stove, dine at one big table, gather by the log-burner, retreat to beanbags and a sofabed in the cosy snug... on sunny days, sip wine under a parasol while the kids rampage over a lovely shrub-lined lawn. Pad upstairs to sinking carpets, leafy views, soft linen and a fresh New England palette dashed with colourful cushions. Indulge in monsoon showers, waffle robes, organic lotions; book a massage for some 'me' time, or a chef for special occasions. From the dungeons of York to the culinary heights of Michelin-starred restaurants, there are multiple attractions within easy reach – starting across the lane in the Yorkshire Wolds.

Local points of interest from
Victoria Carver:

  • If you like a good walk then head for the Wolds Way less than two miles from the cottages, try a gentle stroll through the beautiful Hotham Park, or meander along to the local wildlife hotspot "The Wetlands" run by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.
  • If you love Yorkshire Puddings then you are in luck. Yorkshire's best Yorkshire pudding maker is owner & Head Chef Ben Cox at "The Star at Sancton", a fantastic gastro pub only 3 miles north of Hotham. Fantastic Sunday lunches!!
  • Children of all ages welcome. Travel cots, high chairs and stair gates provided on request. Park Cottage boasts a spacious private garden for everyone to relax or run around in and don’t forget to unwind in the Hot Tub at the end of every day.
  • Drewtons, is our local award-winning farm shop - 1 mile - open 7 days per week. Perfect for breakfast or lunch and why not pick up one of their prizewinning steak pies or a steak for the BBQ before heading back to the cottage.
  • Explore David Hockney's East Yorkshire Landscape by walking the Yorkshire Wolds on the doorstep or experience the wonder of the picturesque market towns of Beverley, Howden, Malton and Pocklington.
  • Great children's play park within 20 minute walk through Hotham Park, opposite the church in North Cave.
