I had a very nice welcome from Patrick and Helen and was delighted with the provisions left including hens eggs freshly laid by Agnes, Gladys, Mavis and Phyllis
The cottage was extremely well appointed with bath and shower gels and various kitchen bits and bobs. This is not always the case in all rental properties. It was also very clean.
The cottage was ideally placed for the village and the church, where I was attending a wedding.
All in all a pleasure to stay here and would stay again and highly recommend to others
The cottage has everything you'd need. Warm welcome from Helen and Patrick, a jug of flowers, gorgeous eggs from the hens. Self contained and private, but only five minutes from the town centre and with off road parking. Lovely little outside terrace area, and a beautiful garden. Comfy bed and great bed linen. We'll stay again, if we're tempted by another gig at the Arts Centre.
Just returned from an excellent three night stay in this beautifully furnished and equipped cottage. It was so spotless it looked as though we were the first guests to stay there. We loved the chairs hand crafted by Patrick, the hens (they lay great eggs with the biggest yolks we have ever eaten) and the kindness shown to us by both Helen and Patrick. The location is ideal to walk to Pocklington and the Burnby Hall Gardens where you can feed the fish which have the biggest mouths we have ever seen and stroke the tiny birds in the aviary. The scenic drive through the Wolds was a joy.
my wife and I have just returned from an excellent mini stay at carpenters cottage.on arrival we found it spotless clean and very well facilitated.our hosts Helen and Patrick were very welcoming, pleasant ,and attentive.the cottage is ideally situated in the lovely market town of pocklington being only a short stroll to all the town has to offer ie shops,restaraunts, cafes, and pubs.a wide range of places to visit are only a short distance away either by car or bus,and burnam hall gardens is only a short walk away and well worth the visit.over the years we have visited many holiday cottages around the uk but non to better carpenters cottage, which is why we would have no hesitation in highly recommending this cottage.

For a couple, Carpenters' Cottage is just perfect - you're right in the heart of town and yet once you're inside, you're in your own little world. Patrick and Helen are very friendly and for us they helped make a quick weekend stopover a real holiday.
