The Toll Cottage is a luxury boutique B&B accommodation situated in the heart of Cottingham, on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds. It’s ideally positioned as a location visit Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire, which is going to be a hive of activity during 2017 when the City of Culture year is taking place. The Toll Cottage is a beautiful, 18th Century cottage steeped in history. Originally built on the grounds of “Baynard Castle”, a moated castle built in the 12th and 13th centuries, its name derives from its position to the toll gates of the castle. The Cottage was purchased by local business woman and entrepreneur Elaine Townend in January 2014. Elaine had spotted a gap in the market for a luxury accommodation provider in this area and wanted to add a B&B business to her existing portfolio, already owning award winning tea room and farm shop Millers based in Raywell. After spending several months embarking on a complete refurbishment project the establishment opened its doors to the public as a fully functioning B&B on 8th July 2014. The B&B has been completely renovated and refurbished to offer luxurious, homely and comfortable accommodation for business or leisure travellers.
