~~~~ Bay Tree Cottage and Horseshoe Cottage, of Nordham Cottages, HU15 2LT, were finalists in the REYTA awards in 2014, East Yorkshire's Tourism Awards~~~~.Our cottages are well situated to discover the secrets of the Yorkshire Wolds: countryside location with coast, town and city, all within easy striking distance. If you are looking for a cottage to be able to enjoy the cycling of the Wolds and Vale of York. Look no further! TOUR DE YORKSHIRE, which ran 1-3rd May 2015, virtually passed the door, in Stage 2 through neighbouring North Newbald. We have some testing cycle rides around here on quiet roads, enjoying the best of the Wolds, and we are happy to share our knowledge of local cycling. We have 'cycle lock up' so your bikes are safe. If you want to see what's on in the area, there is a list at the end of the description. You won't be bored!

If walking is your thing, there are some excellent walks from the door, with 2 longer walks created by leading walking journalist Fiona Barltrop who stayed at Horseshoe cottage in October last year. Another long walk was created for us by some keen walkers who stayed a while ago. Keen walkers ourselves, we also have a list of walks we have done with friends, with a good pub lunch to take a break! There are many shorter walks known to us, and we have a walking section in our info file for enthusiasts.

Bay Tree Cottage is a great get away for couples or indeed for people taking a break on their own, "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 to the main house 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 charities NGS supports: Macmillan, Marie Curie, Help the hospices and many others.

If our smaller 'singles/couples cottage' is taken, we are happy to take bookings for just one or two people in Horseshoe, with a discount for reduced occupancy. Horseshoe can actually sleep up to 7, with 2 extra beds (£30/ extra bed), and it can also be linked to Bay Tree, 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.

The Yorkshire 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!
