Images of the cottage and site


Shire Cottage is dog friendly, we take up to 2 well behaved dogs.

Shire is also wheelchair friendly, there is a ramp to the door, which is a double door and the door to the bedroom has been made that bit wider.  There is also a wet room rather than a bathroom.


Shire Cottage has a fully equip kitchen with a full height fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher, wash machine, kettle, toaster, tea pot, cafe tier, knife block, chopping board, pans, frying pan,  as well as all the crockery and cutlery.


Bedroom one – on the same level as the living space and is ideal for a wheelchair user.  This room has a double bed, wardrobe, set of drawers and a wet room

Bedroom two – is just off the kitchen and down 2 steps the bed arrangement can either be 2 single beds or have them zipped together to create a super king size bed there is also a set of drawers and hanging space, the en-suite to this room is a shower over a bath.

Both bedrooms have white Egyptian cotton bedding with pillow protectors and a mattress protector with a throw over the bed.

Towels are provided, each person is provided a bath sheet and each bath/shower room has a bath mat and hand towel in.

“We booked a few days away at the end of lockdown with just the hope for a change of scenery from home. It’s been so much more thank you so much Karen and Chris for going above and beyond to ensure we had a fun and wonderful stay.
The kids have had a blast adventuring around and seeing the animals and had fundays out at the seaside.
Thank you thank you thank you. coming home fully refreshed. 🙏

If I could have moved in here, I would. The decor and finishing touches are lovely! Peaceful and quiet rural location with animals just outside.  Loved cosy evenings soaking away in the bath, after exploring the beautiful coastline walking from Danes Dyke to Flamborough, which is accessible by car. Beside the cottage is a farm shop/ tea house which we didn’t have the opportunity to use as we were busy exploring in the day time Thank you for having us! We hope to be able to visit again in the future.
