    The Bolthole was a perfect base to explore the East Riding of Yorkshire both regarding the City of York and the coastline. The accommodation was of the highest standard with attention to detail second to none with personal touches provided by the owners a real bonus. Would certainly recommend this property to family and friends for an ideal holiday. Enjoyed visits to York and Beverly to the North Yorks Moors and the seaside town of Whitby.

    Firstly I want to say just how fantastic a welcome we received on arriving at the Bolthole. Caroline was so friendly showing us around making sure we knew where everything was. The flowers and welcome hamper were beyond brilliant and the local produce was really top notch. Caroline and Mark have really thought of pretty much everything for your comfort with quality appliances and furnishings. There are however one or two areas we feel need to be mentioned, for example our first night was spent killing a lot of flies. We stopped counting at 15 and this stopped us enjoying our food that night. We also could not open the windows as when we did lots more flies came in. We both realise that we are in the country and this could happen but possibly some fly screens might help with this. Another issue was the heat. The bolthole does hold in heat especially on hot days like we had and this became very uncomfortable at times. Caroline did say to keep the blinds down to help keep the rooms cool but to be honest who wants to be in the dark all day. I think a personal air cooler would be a good addition to the already excellent equipment provided so we could have had both daylight and felt cool. The last area we feel needs mentioning is the matting used in the bedroom, this has a really strong smell and did effect our sleep the first couple of nights. We feel good quality carpet in the bedroom would be more comfortable and more befitting a five star place. All in all the bolthole is a really good place to stay for visiting the local area.

    The Bolthole provides a touch of luxury. The owner provides a welcome hamper which is excellent with many of the items locally sourced.

    Found East Yorkshire beautiful regardless of rain. Couldn’t fault the property, it is very well equipped, and the hosts were lovely, so friendly and welcoming on arrival, the box of goodies provided was amazing. If the weather had been better we could have lounged outside, and made use of the barbecue. However, fantastic gastro pubs close by, recommend by our hosts.

    This is out third visit to The Bolthole and won't be our last. There are a number of reasons we use it as a base - comfort, location, the standard of the cottage and proximity to a number of good sites for birding. RSPB Bempton Cliffs to the north of Bridlington is a prime location for seabirds during the nesting season - Gannets, Puffins, Razorbills, Guillemots and Kittiwakes. Top Hill Low reservoir owned by Yorkshire Water is a good location for wildfowl, waders and woodland species. Askham Bogs, just off the York ring road and close to the race course is a small site owned by the YWT and during visits there Jay and Great Spotted Woodpecker have been the highlights. Hornsea Mere is well worth a visit for a range of waterfowl and can be combined with sea watching from the beach. The roadbeds around the Mere provide breeding sites for Reed Warblers. Further afield, RSPB Blacktoft Sands on the south side of the Humber Estuary has a range of waders, warblers and raptors. RSPB Fairburn Ings between Leeds and York, is an important site for breeding and wintering wildfowl, especially Gadwalls. Both sites are well worth visiting.

    Lovely welcome and food hamper of local produce. Beautifully finished to a very high standard. The bed is amazing. The only tiny negative is that the flooring is really hard on your bare feet. Made of natural fibres ( possibly coconut husk ) wish we’d brought slippers to replace our shoes when we removed them at the front door.

    We had a great holiday in the most comfortable and well planned cottage. No expense has been spared to ensure guests are comfortable and have everything anyone could require for a great stay. The welcome pack was the best we’ve ever had and the icing on the cake was the most beautiful flower arrangement that welcomed us into the cottage. Caroline and Mark were the perfect hosts, available if required but not at all intrusive. We would recommend the Bolthole unreservedly.

    There are not enough superlatives to describe the Bolthole. We can honestly say it is the best place we have ever stayed. The owners, Mark and Caroline have designed and furnished the cottage to the highest standard. The whole place oozes quality, from the huge comfortable bed to the fully equipped kitchen. Not to mention the added touches of the fabulous flowers in the hallway and the quality welcome hamper of locally sourced goodies. The Bolthole really is the perfect luxury retreat. We cannot recommend it enough and can't wait to return.

    The Bolthole is a hidden gem in the heart of East Yorkshire. From the moment we drove through the gated entrance we knew we were in a special place. The owner made us very welcome and escorted us through the cottage with a detailed explanation of services and facilities. The cottage was beautifully decorated and equipped to the highest specification. The attention to detail was very evident even down to the well-stocked welcome food hamper and as it was Christmas there was a beautifully decorated large Christmas tree in the entrance hall. Will we stay there again? You bet we will. Margaret & Ian
