~~~~ Bay Tree Cottage and Horseshoe Cottage were finalists in this years REYTA awards, East Yorkshire's Tourism Awards~~~~.

Our cottages are ideally located for a varied holiday and well situated to discover the secrets of the Yorkshire Wolds. Countryside location with coast, town and city, all within easy striking distance.

Bay Tree Cottage, "A little slice of heaven", ideal for a relaxing weekend/midweek break for 2, a great 'get-away' from the stresses of everyday life. We have had many lovely remarks about Bay Tree in our visitors book, and from our questionnaires.

Other Trip Adviser reviews are:

"110% outstanding",..... "Delightful, cosy cottage",.... "A superb escape to the country in an amazing cottage",.....

"Absolute pleasure to stay in!",..... "Beautifully quaint cottage in perfect surroundings".

Bay Tree cottage is situated on the quiet street of Nordham, North Cave, and was originally one of the gardener's cottages to Fawley House. The extensive gardens have fruit and vegetable growing areas, and when available and in season, we offer you a fresh veg basket during your stay.

(Fawley House Garden is open for the ngs and it is possible to see the gardens during your stay by arranging with Louise and donating £4/head, which goes to Ngs. The money raised goes to Macmillan, Marie Curie, Help the hospices and others charities.)

If our smaller 'couples cottage' is taken, we are happy to take bookings for just 2 people in Horseshoe, with a discount for reduced occupancy.

Horseshoe can actually sleep up to 7, with 2 extra beds (£25 extra/bed), and it can also be linked to Bay Tree, next door to sleep up to 9: useful to know for wedding parties, family celebrations and business events.

In March 2014, our Nordham Cottages entry to the East Yorkshire Tourism awards was shortlisted, and we were given a place as a finalist for the Remarkable Self Catering Provider category, something we are really proud of.

The cottage is assessed as 4* by Quality in Tourism, and we work hard to retain our star rating, stiving to offer our customers a welcoming, functional, relaxing and comfortable haven .We like to involve our visitors by asking for their suggestions:

there are very few suggestions we have not acted upon.

Our visitor reviews and our visitors book comments make us smile :) spurring us on, and its good to know we have satisfied customers.

BAY TREE COTTAGE is situated in the quiet hamlet of Nordham, almost part of North Cave, where you can find a village shop/post office, (playground, if you have a toddler with you), and wetlands bird sanctuary, all only a 5 minute walk away:

The village offers the shop/post office- perfect for the things you forgot to bring like milk, butter, bread, papers or even wine; and there's a really good fruit and veg shop 'Walkers' on the edge of the village. Even a special occasion ladies dress boutique!

There are 2 pubs within walking distance and plenty to see:The North Cave Wetlands' are at the end of the our road for spectacular wading bird life, including Avocets. Lovely ' destination' walks - the Gastro Pub at Hotham (30 mins) and also Drewtons Farm Shop for a delicious award winning breakfast/lunch/or Friday evening meal - closes at 9pm. If you want to work up a real appetite you could walk (1 hour) to the Star at Sancton, which if renowned for its excellent food, open for lunches and evening meals, and taxi back if the light beats you.If you just want diet busting great Fish and Chips or a Chinese to bring back to the cottage, there are both at Newport, 5 minutes away in the car.

There's an excellent small supermarket, selling local meats and local bakery products at South Cave, and Leaks butchers, five minutes drive away. South Cave also has the Fox and Coney Pub, The Gallery (Italian) Restaurant, a chemist, gift shops, and Antiques. The bigger supermarkets, are only 15 minutes away at Market Weighton and Brough.

Plenty to do: There are two plant Nurseries in the village and Fawley House garden to visit; Bird watching; Kayaking on a Saturday; Walking and great cycling. Indoor bowls is offered in the winter months. Riding, Clay Shooting & Motor Cross Track 5/10 minutes away. We even have a Dive centre! There's the very popular Drewton's Farm Shop to visit which has produce, wine, gifts and a great restaurant (a customer favourite) and the Bird of Prey Centre only 5 minutes away, if that.

If you like Sunday Markets, there is also 'North Cave Car Boot' which is open from 7.30-1pm.

(Angie serves 'a great bacon sandwich' at the Wild Bird Café on a morning, so you could do a round trip by the Wetlands down Dryham Lane and left at the end which brings you out eventually near the Market.)

Enjoy the clean fresh air and the peaceful Wolds countryside famed by Hockney. Discover the nearby towns and cities such as Beverley, Hull and York along with many others and explore the East Yorkshire coastline, which varies from white chalk cliffs to long sandy beaches stretching from Flamborough Head to Spurn Point.

Suggestions for visits: - The Deep in Hull; Jorvik Viking Centre in York; North York Moors National Park; Royal Armories in Leeds; Burton Agnes Hall & Gardens & Bridlington, or Sledmere House & Gardens & Driffield; the Yorkshire Sculpture Park at Wakefield.

Six full, 'fun packed' days, and Bay Tree Cottage is ideally located to be able to do them all.

Visit the dramatic chalk cliffs at Bempton with world renowned bird-life to see. Walk along the sandy beaches at Bridlington, Hornsea and beyond. After a good day out, return to a relaxing, well equipped home and if the weather is good, light the log barbecue and enjoy an evening outdoors. If you'd rather have a cosy night inside, light the fire and snuggle in with a film and a bottle of wine.

Northern England region

Many are familiar with the Yorkshire Dales in North Yorkshire, but East Yorkshire is quite a well kept secret. It has so much to offer! The lovely Wolds countryside, where you can pull off the road and hear the sky larks high above. Stop off at a Wolds pub for a bite to eat or a quiet pint!

Our varied coastline: long sandy beaches at Hornsea and Bridlington to the highest chalk cliffs in Britain at Bempton, home to 200,000 seabirds. Visit Hornsea Mere, Yorkshire's largest natural freshwater lake or the man made North Cave Wetlands, just at the end of our street -stroll down there on an evening to enjoy the sunset as well as the birdlife If you want to see another birdlife hotspot, visit Blacktoft Sands, the largest tidal reedbed in England. For walkers, the noteable paths of the Wolds Way and the Minster Way are a fantastic way to see our landscape, along with the many public footpaths we can recommend in our neighbouring villages. For cyclists the route 66 is the obvious choice, and there are many local tried and tested cycle routes around N. Cave. We are lucky to have York and Hull with their many visitor attractions, both cities very different, both of historical significance with much to see and do. Market towns of Beverley, Howden, Pocklington, Market Weighton are all only 20 minutes away, and are all well worth a visit. We have a good selection of gardens and historic houses - Burton Agnes Hall, Burnby Hall Gardens, Sledmere House, Sewerby Hall and Gardens, and some of the best churches to see in the country. If you enjoy Horse Racing, there are courses at Beverley and York.

There are several different festivals in our area, for example Hull Jazz Festival from 20th to 29th July, and festivals in Beverley throughout th summer, and events at Burton Agnes Hall. There is plenty of theatre to see in Hull and York as well as open air performances in the county, the nearest at Pocklington's Burnby Hall on July 28th showing Pride and Predjucie. With all the above to get through and more, we can guarantee you wont be bored!


From the door in North Cave, there are lovely destination walks - Hotham Arms in the next door village, a short walk away; Drewton Farm Shop for an award winning breakfast; South Cave to the Gallery for a lunch or evening meal, or to see Angie's Wild Bird Cafe at the North Cave Wetlands for a ' bacon bap'. If walking isn't your thing, there's plenty more in store.

In North Cave you can go Fishing, Diving, Kayaking and Canoeing, play Bowls, and in the neighbouring village there's Golf & Spa, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Polo, & Horse Riding. If you 'green fingered', we have 4 ngs gardens from the door and Mires Beck Nursery and Marjoram Nursery in the village (which also has a fruit and veg shop). If wildlife is your thing, the paths by the stream, the parkland and footpaths around the village as well as the North Cave Wetlands, have plenty to show.

In addition to those already mentioned, there are other fine restaurants in the area, The Star at Sancton, and the Boars Nest at Rudston Walk, the Michelin Starred restaurant The Pipe and Glass at Dalton, and many good restaurants in Beverley including Cerutti 2 and the Westwood. If you don't want to go to the coast for Fish and Chips, there's Johny Haddock in Newport, the next village!

For food shopping visit Beverley market on a Saturday morning or the Farmers market in South Cave, or one of the nearby supermarkets in South Cave, Brough, Market Weighton, Howden or Pocklington. For a day 'in town', not much can beat Beverley which buzzes on a Saturday, with the lovely market in the square near the ' butter cross'. There are boutique shops and a fine selection of cafes and places to enjoy sitting for a while, before you look at the Minster or do the Town Trail!
