We received a warm welcome at Lilliput cottage from the owners who live in adjacent accommodation.
The house was light and airy with a comfortable sitting room/diner and a really well equipped kitchen.It has not long been built and the garden was still work in progress. There were two bathrooms with level access walk in shower, bidet, wash hand basin and lavatory. Heated towel rails were welcomed the first week as it was sunny but cold. By week 2 the weather had changed to summer and became quite hot at times. The first floor bedroom had beautiful open views of the Wolds.
We enjoyed walks along the tow path of the historic Pocklington Canal - within 5 minutes walk of the house. Pocklington is a pretty market town nearby with a beautiful gardens and tea room accessible for a small entrance fee. York is not far away with Park and Ride the best option for visiting its many tourist attractions.
We visited Whitby, Riveaulx, and Fountains abbeys, Harewood House - the home of the Queen's cousins, and the North York Moors.
We particularly liked the peaceful countryside in which this accommodation is situated and its ease of access to York and the Wolds.
We would happily return to Lilliput Lodge at some time in the future.

Perfect hosts, ideal location for visiting York and the coast of Scarborough and Bridlington. Everything in the cottage is superbly thought out, lovely kitchen, wish I had it at home and the huge showers are to die for. We'd love to come back.
