Call Out Cottage was once used as a fire station and is set on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds village of Sledmere, eight miles from Driffield. This cottage sleeps four people and has two bedrooms, consisting of one double with an en-suite bathroom with freestanding bath and a twin with en-suite shower room. The cottage also has an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area, as well as a ground floor shower room.

Loved the cottage itself, it was really nicely decorated and had everything we needed. It was in a good location to explore Yorkshire's coast, moors and dales. The village itself was lovely with plenty of walks to go on.

A cottage with the wow factor that allowed dogs too.

Call Out Cottage is a great conversion, with great fixtures and fittings. We really enjoyed our week there. Sledmere is a lovely village too.

The cottage is very tastefully decorated and exceptionally clean. It is a credit to the owners, and we would stay again.

The overall interior of the cottage both in the high standard of the fixtures and fittings and the feeling of openness. Lovely bedrooms and bathrooms and good quality bedding and towels all contribute to a very enjoyable holiday in a beautiful location.

It was all we hoped for and more. In a good location and well positioned for access to places of interest. The property was finished and equipped to a high standard, we could not have been more impressed!

The cottage was beautiful and all comforts catered for, it was well situated for visits to the coast. Its rural location gives a sense of peace and tranquillity but plenty to do on the doorstep Lovely views of the countryside. Would have no problem recommending this cottage to others.

We stayed for a family get together over Christmas. The cottage was beautifully clean and the kitchen was well equipped but there was nothing to recall the previous fire station in Call Out Cottage. We found the beds comfortable but the bedrooms were somewhat sparsely furnished with no bedside tables, chairs etc to place clothes and belongings on overnight in the twin and there was a lack of lights easily reachable from the bed in the double. The sofas were comfortable but very low indeed. We ended up having to leave after two of our three days as the staircase has no handrail on the lower section and the shower in the ensuite has no anti-slip provision in the twin, making it unsafe for my elderly mother. It is also important to note that there is no mobile service on either EE or O2 (though we were told there was on Vodaphone).

First impressions matter & we weren't disappointed. This old fire station has been refurbished to a very good standard & was spotlessly clean on our arrival. It's in a good location if you want to explore the East Yorkshire coast &/or the Nth Yorks Moors by car, but an even better location if you just want to switch off & confine yourselve's to the village. Sledmere is a dog walkers paradise even if the estates deer park signs say no dogs.There are soo many rabbits that you need to keep 'em on the lead anyways. The local pub is very good, very friendly & very popular, so you may need to book if eating out.

6 of us stayed in the Fire Engine Cottage earlier this month and we all had the loveliest time. The cottage is beautiful, tastefully decorated right the way through, comfortable chairs, settee, beds, lovely bathrooms, TV, hairdryers, a super kitchen with everything you could possibly want. The back of the cottage looks out onto lush green fields and during our stay sheep were in the field with their lambs which all added to the magic of our stay there. A welcome pack was in the kitchen to greet us - bread, milk, biscuits and also fresh flowers in a vase. It was a real treat to stay at The Fire Engine Cottage and well worth the money we paid, which, when divided between 6 of us, was very reasonable indeed.

Excellent accommodation- absolutely ideal for 4 people plus small dog. The private courtyard was good with outdoor seating.
