July 2023
We had the most relaxing holiday, so peaceful and quite. The cottage is perfect for trips to York only 8 miles away. The owners were so kind and friendly .The cottage was perfect for our family and dog , for lovely walks pub about 45min walk. And the Three cups pub and restaurant food was amazing ate there twice was so good. If your looking for a perfect getaway no WiFi, peace, quite, clean well equipped cottage . This is the place definitely coming back

Couldn’t believe our luck, this beautiful place was ours for a week! Amazing, lovely and warm, spotlessly clean and fresh smelling! As we were a multi generational family the downstairs bedroom was great for us. Every bedroom had an en-suite and there was also a single WC downstairs. There was also a tv in one of the bedrooms added bonus as I don’t think it was mentioned in the booking information. Everything about this cottage was perfect, so well presented. There was nothing you could possibly need that wasn’t there! We arrived early evening and the host had left us a light on inside such a thoughtful idea. It was so nice that he left us to settle in that night and made himself known to us the next day. What a gentleman! At the back of the cottage is an enclosed courtyard with a gate ideal for dogs and kids. There is no Wi-Fi but to be honest we rather enjoyed the break from it! Preferring board games though would suggest you take some dvds (especially for the kids) just in case the tv is rubbish! Ideally located for visiting York

The grassed front garden area was smaller than we expected.. It was sufficient but the photos give an impression of a bigger area. There is also no downstairs shower only a bath.

The Cart Shed is a great facility that was extremely clean and welcoming.. The kitchen is very well equipped and the lay out of the house works well. Lovely hosts and great views. Loved the local farm shop and walking out and about locally

This is our 2nd stay in The Cart Shed.. We love the open plan accommodation with wonderful views of the surrounding Yorkshire countryside - very close to nearby York and other important routes

How about NO HOT WATER AT ALL for a three night stay! We found that there was no hot water early on our first morning (Friday) and informed the owner of the property at a civilised hour - 9.30. As we were on our way out for the day, we ensured that the owner had access to the cottage and he assured us that he would look into the problem. On our return at approximately 16.30, we found that there was still no hot water. We immediately contacted the owner and he was adamant that there was hot water. We asked him to attend the property and he was forced to admit that indeed there was no hot water. He then informed us that he could not get a heating engineer to look into the problem until Monday. There were six of us in the property for the weekend and to have no hot water was beyond a joke. The owner offered to let us use the shower in his house but under no circumstance was this practical. We finished up either using kettles of hot water or using a stone cold shower -- it was only mid December! We are interested to establish as to what compensation we will receive as you ( Note 1) were unable to provide the most basic of facilities i.e. hot water Note 1 The contract was with Sykes, not the owner of the property.

The cart shed is the perfect base for all your York sight seeing, it is so comfy and a real home from home.. We really felt that we were so happy at the cart shed. Very well maintained, well set up and really lovely place to have your holiday, thanks.

The Cart Shed was a lovely place to stay, very quiet and peaceful.. The stars at night were fabulous on a clear night. The cottage was very comfortable and a good size, plenty of room for guests. Great walks for the dogs straight from the door.
Mr Cox

The position, the openness and we were blessed with fine weather which made the whole stay excellent.. We also found the locals very friendly and polite.
Mrs Anderson
September 2018
This is a great little property.. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms which was ideal for the three sets of people we had staying at it. The owner was very amenable but just beware that the cottage does not provide towels. Not an issue but one of our guests hadn't brought one ! Lovely.
Mrs Uttley
June 2018
The cottage was well set out but the mattresses were the most uncomfortable we have ever experienced.. Showers were not clean - we did this ourselves. The location was further from the village than what was in the description. We had an ant invasion that we did let the owners know about. It was a shame as the cottage was lovely and an ideal spot from where we could get to different areas of Yorkshire.
Mrs Robins
June 2018
The hosts were excellent and the accomadtion/ facilities were superb.. The location was a little more remote than we were expecting, mit perhaps that was our interpretation. Overall we would recommend this property to any family/ friends group.
Mr Moody
April 2018
Towels were not provided - while this was not a problem because we were informed over the phone when confirming our arrival and key collection details it was only in the property description by omission.. Surprised to find no Wi-Fi which is rapidly becoming the norm these days. Despite these relatively minor niggles this is a nice comfortable holiday cottage in a quiet location but not too far from amenities. Access and parking were very good. Owners made our dog welcome and indicated local dog walks.
Mr Doughty
March 2018
The Owner was extremely helpful and met us on arrival.. The Cottage was very well appointed, clean and tidy and met all of our needs. Facilities are good, modern and the parking can facilitate 3-4 large family cars. The heating system is exceptionally good and all of the showers are powerful and hot water provided constantly. It is well located and provides easy access to York, Leeds, Harrogate, Beverley and the Yorkshire Wolds. There is a good range of pubs/restaurants locally. We had a thoroughly good break and I would strongly recommend the Cart Shed to family and friends and would use it again.

Great location - not to far from local pub/ restaurant or mini market but secluded enough to star gaze in the evening.. Easy access to York park and ride. Definitely booking again soon!

Absolutely perfect - gorgeous location in the country.. Owners were really friendly. All open plan downstairs so really social with a lovely garden. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay near York.

This is a quality barn conversion, we really liked the layout, it was quirky and it had plenty of natural light. It is in very peaceful surroundings - sitting out on the patio in the morning with a coffee, the countryside views, and the sound of birds tweeting was just idyllic. The kitchen was very well equipped and there were a few food basics, and cleaning products provided. Towels weren't provided but we weren't fussed about bringing our own. The upstairs en-suites had large walk in showers which was lovely and there was plenty of hot water. A shower over the bath downstairs would be a bonus. We all slept comfortably, our only complaint would be that a couple of the pillowcases were a bit worn. Overall, a good base for exploring York and the surroundings. For us, as a family, it worked out much cheaper than staying in York itself and it felt like a home from home.
October 2016
This is a cracking cottage, an excellent barn conversion with all the amenities you could ask for. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, although the downstairs bathroom does not have a shower, so you need to borrow a different bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped, with great sized fridge freezer, washing machine that has a 30min quick wash and a separate dryer. The cottage has a good boiler with great pressure, so is warm and the showers will leave you happy! We were an extended family of 6, over three generations, and we all liked it. The location is outside of Stamford Bridge, just a 2 mile drive or 20min walk, although the local speed along the road, so not so sure about the walking. The coop is open 6am-10pm every day, so easy to grab any essentials. (We ordered an Asda delivery before we left and got it delivered the evening we arrived, without any issues). There is no wifi in the property, so gear yourself up before you go (or have a proper holiday!) Our only concern that let our holiday down was the neighbours dogs - they are put into a run infront of this property every morning around 7.30am, and the poor springer then spends the next 20mins or so barking repeatedly. Was a great reliable alarm, if you wanted one! The dogs themselves are lovely and friendly, and appear allowed to wander around at night once the neighbours let them out the run. Overall, a really nice cottage, in a good location for accessing York and beyond, but will debate returning due to the alarm call...

The cottage was beautiful and perfect for our family. The facilities were spot on, we wanted for nothing. The location was so peaceful and private and it was an ideal location for York, Scarborough and numerous tourist locations.
Mrs Treharne

Close to some great attractions,park and ride for york up the road and some wonderfull pubs in the area for superb food,try the Golden cup at caton and the 3 cups in stamford bridge. We will certainly be back in the future,Thankyou once again

We all liked the quality, cleanliness and location. We have been going to cottages over the last 18 years and this ranks in the top 2 we have been to. Very very satisfied. Please congratulate the owners on a superb cottage.
November 2015
Phoned the day before to arrange key collection. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. The cottage was fabulous, a lovely, well thought out conversion, with an en suite to each bedroom and equipped with everything that could be needed. It was extremely clean. The enclosed courtyard was handy for the dogs but also a really good sized grassed garden with direct access to the cottage. It was centrally heated heated with good insulation, so very warm too. We were three generations, and the cottage was great for all of us. We wanted somewhere just outside York, so we could visit the city during the day. Stamford Bridge (about 2 miles from the cottage, had a co-op (that we used), fish and chip shop, a couple of pubs and more amenities (which we didn't use) that were all very handy. The Yorkshire Wolds Trail about 8 miles to the east (just over the hill you can see from the dining room window) was a good walk, you can park at the picnic area and then cross the A166. The Cart Shed is even better than the pics. Warm, well equipped and clean with really nice owners, lovely views and a great layout., i would love to stay again and for longer!

This was one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in - and we have stayed in a lot! It had all we needed as a family of four adults. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Although this was not in one of Yorkshire's main holiday destinations, it was an area we did not know and we found lots of interesting places in an easy distance from Stamford Bridge to visit.
Mrs Noblett

Mrs Newbury

The Cart Shed is the best holiday house we have stayed in. Everything about it was wonderful, light and airy yet warm and comfortable. It is very well equipped and to a very high standard, we found it hard to leave! It is well placed for visiting York, the North Yorkshire Moors and Castle Howard. We cannot recommend it highly enough.

Lovely cottage with a well equipped kitchen to cook our Christmas dinner. Excellent views and our dog loved the freedom of running round the fields. It was nice to have an en suite each. Friendly and welcoming owners.
Mrs Bowdin
December 2014
The owners were very welcoming. We were really impressed with the quality of the accommodation, especially the kitchen. There was absolutely everything you need and more provided in the numerous cupboards and drawers. The bathrooms were spotlessly clean and well presented. We will definitely be trying to stay there again in the future.
Mrs Green

Nice, quiet atmosphere with fantastic views of farmland. Very light cottage with plenty of bathrooms. Children loved the open space and freedom outside. We loved that we could let them play outside without any worries. We plan to come back again!
August 2014
Will be back next year. One of the top that we have stayed at. Fantastic view of farm lands. Great bathrooms. Fantastic. Fantastic. Fantastic.
Mr Paris
July 2014
We loved the location. It is not too far out from the village, and close enough to decent shops in Pocklington. An ideal touring base to visit the surrounding area too. The light coming into the cart shed from those wonderful windows makes it a lovely light place to be. The fact the upstairs bedrooms are pretty much plunged into darkness at night time makes for a fantastic nights sleep in my book.
Mrs Anderson

A lovely rural, peaceful location but not far from local village. An excellent standard of accommodation.
Mrs Fleming

Everything about this holiday was excellent; from the start of booking to the very last day of our stay. The directions were first class as was the accommodation, with all that met our needs and more. It was indeed very comfortable and well catered for. The owners were very helpful and we felt we had known them for years making us feel right at home. We would certainly book again in the future.

This is possibly the best self catering cottage we have ever stayed in. It was our second visit and it will not be our last!. The owners are welcoming, helpful and friendly. The attention to detail is excellent. We have a disabled gentleman in our party and the cottage is well laid out and spacious enough to meet his needs perfectly. Already looking forward to our next visit.
Mrs Speed

The Cart Shed is ideally situated for visiting all the main tourist attractions in this part of Yorkshire. The property was in excellent condition and very comfortable. We were a party of six adults and had no problems with lack of space or storage for everything we bought with us. The views from the patio area at the back of the property were great, we often sat there in the mornings and evenings enjoying the view and peace and quiet. All in all perfect holiday accommodation.
Mrs Davies

This is a perfect place to stay with lots to do within driving distance. The owners are lovely people and helped me when my car broke down. Can't wait to go back for a third visit, still lots to see and do.
Miss Graham

The location and the cottage were both fantastic. We went away for relaxed chilled out hen party and this was exactly what we got. Perfect in every way!
January 2013
We stayed at the cart shed in early November for a long weekend. It's pure luxury! Lovely spacious bedrooms,nice open plan kitchen,fantastic views, would definitely recommend.the only gripe I had was when my 5 year old son saw a swing in the garden and went on it and suddenly a very unhappy and grumpy man appeared saying its his garden ! Well how was my 5 year old son supposed to know that ?! I'm sure we can't have been the first to have had this problem and I think it needs addressing , apart from that it was a fantasic weekend.
January 2013
After a dismal journey from Hertfordshire, my daughter, son-in-law and I arrived at the Cart Shed feeling tired and jaded. We were met by the owners who welcomed us cheerily. The cottage was even better than we had expected with every possible convenience and real luxury. The heating was more than adequate so that we were soon warm. Unfortunately the dishwasher had been out of operation for a while and the previous visitors hadn't washed up very well so we had to wash cups before we could have a drink and plates before our evening meal. Nevertheless the kitchen was very well fitted and spacious enough for us all to be involved in the cooking. The beds were extremely comfortable and we all slept well. My son-in-law's family live in and around York so we were able to see them all from our comfortable base at the cottage. All it lacked was an open fire to compensate for the awful weather, and some recognition that it was Christmas. Other cottages we have rented at this time of year have had a Christmas tree and some holly - a small expense to make it extra special.

The cart shed was furnished to a very high standard, with good views over fields. Easy 20 mins walk along a not too busy road into the nearest village, which has lots of history, great walks, great cafe and even better whisky shop! Highly recommended!
Mrs Prentice

Terrific location and the cottage is finished to an exceptionally high standard!
January 2012
The house has been converted to a very high standard and only been used since October 2011 so everything is very new and in immaculate condition. We were staying over the Christmas holiday and the owner very kindly added some extra kitchen equipment - an extra large roasting tin and carving set - to assist with the cooking of the turkey.
