Accommodation

Overview & description

Nordham Cottages, the converted gardener's cottages in the grounds of Fawley House, lie in a 'secret pocket' of East Yorkshire with lovely walks from the door. Whether walking by the stream, in the beautiful parkland, round the North Cave Wetlands or on the Wold's Way, you cannot fail to enjoy the views the area reveals. There is much to do in and around the village and our testimonials comment on what a great base our cottages make for exploring East Yorkshire's countryside, coast and cities. We offer a great explorer day map from 'cottage to coast' taking you on a journey which will take your breath away through stunning Wold's countryside, which can be found in our information file along with many other day trip ideas.

During your stay we offer a veg basket, if and when veg is available. We grow the vegetables ourselves at the National Garden Scheme gardens at Fawley House, which are available for you to view during your stay, with a donation to the charity. Our family run business offers a warm welcome to our guests along with a Yorkshire Tea tray, and flowers in the cottage on arrival. We aim to please, and are around if you want advice, or will 'leave you be' if you don't!

Bay Tree Cottage is a cosy cottage for couples wanting to get away from it all for a relaxing break. The beamed kitchen with breakfast bar opens onto the sunny courtyard garden, a real sun trap, offering privacy from the rest of the world. The snug sitting room with a dining table, has a really comfortable sofa and easy chair, a traditional pitch pine fireplace and original cupboards containing a selection of games, films and tourist information. Internet access if available, however our well researched information file will help you find out what is available and need to know and may even make you want to stay a while longer!

Upstairs there is a king sized bed in the bedroom with original fireplace. The bedroom looks out at stone walls at the other side of the street, and a magnificent Magnolia tree. The bathroom with its pretty cottage window, is bathed in sunlight, and there's plenty of space to settle your belongings. There is an original 'outhouse' in the courtyard garden which is the outdoor utility room, with washing machine and dryer and extra fridge/freezer. It is also available as somewhere safe to lock your bikes, should you want to sample the cycle routes. There is off-road parking for one car.
