We recently stayed at Old Orchard cottage for a short break to celebrate my husbands birthday. The cottage was really lovely, and very modern. All the rooms were well furnished and the kitchen was equiped with everything you would need.
There is a small private garden at the back of the cottage which was ideal for our bbq.
The cottage is located in the small village of Allerthorpe and is just a few minutes walk from the local pub which we visited a couple of times,
The owner who lives in the house next door was very friendly and helpful giving us details of places to visit and various places to eat out.
The nearest shops are a few minutes drive away in Pocklington. There are a few restaurants and takeaways here too.
We visited a small town called Beverley where there is a market on Saturday.
We also went for a very pleasant walk along a disussed canal starting at the canal head near Pocklington (this was recommended by the owner) its a shame the weather hadn`t been better!
A short drive away from the cottage is a village called Melbourne where you can take a 30 minute ride on a canal boat (this is free and runs on a Sunday) it was very pleasant and relaxing and the guy was very informative.
We all had a great weekend staying in this very comforable cottage, and would definately recommend it.
