The cottage was perfect for us. It was in a beautiful location with beautiful views. The cottage was very well equipped and very clean. We met the owners who were very helpful. I would definitely recommend and use this cottage again.

The cottage was beautiful and perfect for our family. The facilities were spot on, we wanted for nothing. The location was so peaceful and private and it was an ideal location for York, Scarborough and numerous tourist locations.

We all liked the quality, cleanliness and location. We have been going to cottages over the last 18 years and this ranks in the top 2 we have been to. Very very satisfied. Please congratulate the owners on a superb cottage.

This was one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in - and we have stayed in a lot! It had all we needed as a family of four adults. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Although this was not in one of Yorkshire's main holiday destinations, it was an area we did not know and we found lots of interesting places in an easy distance from Stamford Bridge to visit.
Mrs Noblett

The accommodation was excellent and the owners very welcoming and helpful.
Miss Brown
February 2015
We had a wonderful, relaxing break and absolutely loved The Cart Shed. It was lovely accommodation, which was very homely and in a great location. We can't wait to return!
Mrs Newbury
March 2015
The Cart Shed is the best holiday house we have stayed in. Everything about it was wonderful, light and airy yet warm and comfortable. It is very well equipped and to a very high standard, we found it hard to leave! It is well placed for visiting York, the North Yorkshire Moors and Castle Howard. We cannot recommend it highly enough.
Mrs Peter
December 2014
Lovely cottage with a well equipped kitchen to cook our Christmas dinner. Excellent views and our dog loved the freedom of running round the fields. It was nice to have an en suite each. Friendly and welcoming owners.
Mrs Bowdin
December 2014
The owners were very welcoming. We were really impressed with the quality of the accommodation, especially the kitchen. There was absolutely everything you need and more provided in the numerous cupboards and drawers. The bathrooms were spotlessly clean and well presented. We will definitely be trying to stay there again in the future.
Mrs Green
August 2014
Nice, quiet atmosphere with fantastic views of farmland. Very light cottage with plenty of bathrooms. Children loved the open space and freedom outside. We loved that we could let them play outside without any worries. We plan to come back again!
Mrs Anderson
June 2014
A lovely rural, peaceful location but not far from local village. An excellent standard of accommodation.
Mr Paris
July 2014
We loved the location. It is not too far out from the village, and close enough to decent shops in Pocklington. An ideal touring base to visit the surrounding area too. The light coming into the cart shed from those wonderful windows makes it a lovely light place to be. The fact the upstairs bedrooms are pretty much plunged into darkness at night time makes for a fantastic nights sleep in my book.
Mrs Fleming
May 2014
Everything about this holiday was excellent; from the start of booking to the very last day of our stay. The directions were first class as was the accommodation, with all that met our needs and more. It was indeed very comfortable and well catered for. The owners were very helpful and we felt we had known them for years making us feel right at home. We would certainly book again in the future.
Mr Bould
February 2014
Excellent property, the pictures do not do it justice. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. We had a lovely time and would definitely recommend, and if I ever return to this area I would stay in The Cart Shed.

The cleanliness of the property and the quality of the furnishings were excellent, and we felt very comfortable there. York is such an interesting place to visit.
Miss James

Everything was perfect, The Cart Shed was literally like a home away from home. We had the most wonderful time, and would not hesitate to return.
Mrs Newton
August 2013
The location was beautiful and a good base for travelling to York, the coast and the North York Moors. The accommodation was an excellent standard and fully equipped with everything needed. Would highly recommend and would return.
Mr Greenow
July 2013
This is possibly the best self catering cottage we have ever stayed in. It was our second visit and it will not be our last!. The owners are welcoming, helpful and friendly. The attention to detail is excellent. We have a disabled gentleman in our party and the cottage is well laid out and spacious enough to meet his needs perfectly. Already looking forward to our next visit.
Mrs Davies
May 2013
This is a perfect place to stay with lots to do within driving distance. The owners are lovely people and helped me when my car broke down. Can't wait to go back for a third visit, still lots to see and do.
Mrs Speed
June 2013
The Cart Shed is ideally situated for visiting all the main tourist attractions in this part of Yorkshire. The property was in excellent condition and very comfortable. We were a party of six adults and had no problems with lack of space or storage for everything we bought with us. The views from the patio area at the back of the property were great, we often sat there in the mornings and evenings enjoying the view and peace and quiet. All in all perfect holiday accommodation.
Mr Douglass

Warm and welcoming, spotlessly clean. Quiet location. We will definitely book here again.
Miss Graham
February 2013
The location and the cottage were both fantastic. We went away for relaxed chilled out hen party and this was exactly what we got. Perfect in every way!
Mr Stannard
November 2012
The luxury of our own place for the weekend rather than a hotel room and for less money!

Mrs James
October 2012
Possibly the best cottage we have stayed in, en-suites on all bedrooms gave complete privacy to two married couples and a separate down stairs loo for use at other times. Extremely well equipped and very clean. Views were lovely and sunsets stunning across the open fields.
Mr Ratcliffe
September 2012
Beautiful property in a great location for the area. The owners were friendly and helpful.
Mrs Deall
July 2012
The location was good for access to many country areas, as well as coastal resorts and York. This is such a varied area for activities. The Cart Shed was a very good base and the owners were very helpful and obliging.
Mr Meddings
July 2012
The property is in a good location - very peaceful with nice walks and views. The Cart Shed is a nice place to stay, with everything you could want for a comfortable visit.
Mrs Hogben
January 2012
The house has been converted to a very high standard and only been used since October 2011 so everything is very new and in immaculate condition. We were staying over the Christmas holiday and the owner very kindly added some extra kitchen equipment - an extra large roasting tin and carving set - to assist with the cooking of the turkey.
Mrs Prentice
March 2012
Terrific location and the cottage is finished to an exceptionally high standard!
Mr Tye
July 2012
This is a fantastic property in a great location. The finish is excellent and to a high standard. Its a very quiet location, with a lovely evening view of the sunset and wildlife. I would certainly recommend this place and will probably come back again.
October 2016
This is a cracking cottage, an excellent barn conversion with all the amenities you could ask for. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, although the downstairs bathroom does not have a shower, so you need to borrow a different bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped, with great sized fridge freezer, washing machine that has a 30min quick wash and a separate dryer. The cottage has a good boiler with great pressure, so is warm and the showers will leave you happy! We were an extended family of 6, over three generations, and we all liked it. The location is outside of Stamford Bridge, just a 2 mile drive or 20min walk, although the local speed along the road, so not so sure about the walking. The coop is open 6am-10pm every day, so easy to grab any essentials. (We ordered an Asda delivery before we left and got it delivered the evening we arrived, without any issues). There is no wifi in the property, so gear yourself up before you go (or have a proper holiday!) Our only concern that let our holiday down was the neighbours dogs - they are put into a run infront of this property every morning around 7.30am, and the poor springer then spends the next 20mins or so barking repeatedly. Was a great reliable alarm, if you wanted one! The dogs themselves are lovely and friendly, and appear allowed to wander around at night once the neighbours let them out the run. Overall, a really nice cottage, in a good location for accessing York and beyond, but will debate returning due to the alarm call...

We will certainly be back in the future,Thankyou once again

Phoned the day before to arrange key collection. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. The cottage was fabulous, a lovely, well thought out conversion, with an en suite to each bedroom and equipped with everything that could be needed. It was extremely clean. The enclosed courtyard was handy for the dogs but also a really good sized grassed garden with direct access to the cottage. It was centrally heated heated with good insulation, so very warm too. We were three generations, and the cottage was great for all of us. We wanted somewhere just outside York, so we could visit the city during the day. Stamford Bridge (about 2 miles from the cottage, had a co-op (that we used), fish and chip shop, a couple of pubs and more amenities (which we didn't use) that were all very handy. The Yorkshire Wolds Trail about 8 miles to the east (just over the hill you can see from the dining room window) was a good walk, you can park at the picnic area and then cross the A166. The Cart Shed is even better than the pics. Warm, well equipped and clean with really nice owners, lovely views and a great layout., i would love to stay again and for longer!

January 2013
We stayed at the cart shed in early November for a long weekend. It's pure luxury! Lovely spacious bedrooms,nice open plan kitchen,fantastic views, would definitely recommend.the only gripe I had was when my 5 year old son saw a swing in the garden and went on it and suddenly a very unhappy and grumpy man appeared saying its his garden ! Well how was my 5 year old son supposed to know that ?! I'm sure we can't have been the first to have had this problem and I think it needs addressing , apart from that it was a fantasic weekend.
January 2013
After a dismal journey from Hertfordshire, my daughter, son-in-law and I arrived at the Cart Shed feeling tired and jaded. We were met by the owners who welcomed us cheerily. The cottage was even better than we had expected with every possible convenience and real luxury. The heating was more than adequate so that we were soon warm. Unfortunately the dishwasher had been out of operation for a while and the previous visitors hadn't washed up very well so we had to wash cups before we could have a drink and plates before our evening meal. Nevertheless the kitchen was very well fitted and spacious enough for us all to be involved in the cooking. The beds were extremely comfortable and we all slept well. My son-in-law's family live in and around York so we were able to see them all from our comfortable base at the cottage. All it lacked was an open fire to compensate for the awful weather, and some recognition that it was Christmas. Other cottages we have rented at this time of year have had a Christmas tree and some holly - a small expense to make it extra special.

Stayed at The Cart Shed in June. Lovely location beautiful sunsets. Jeff and Shirley lovely people. The accomodation was first class and it was a lovely relaing stay.
May 2012
The cart shed was furnished to a very high standard, with good views over fields. Easy 20 mins walk along a not too busy road into the nearest village, which has lots of history, great walks, great cafe and even better whisky shop! Highly recommended!
