First off, I have to say that this was just a lovely holiday and thanks for having us!

Having friends in Beverley, I stumbled across a Google search for cottages in Beverley which threw up Broadgate Farm Cottages. The pictures looked fantastic & was just under two miles to my friends house.

Situated just a short way from the centre of Beverley passing by Westwood Pastures towards the small village of Walkington, Broadgate Farm Cottages can be found on the right hand side of the road. You need to look carefully but as you turn in, you see the sheep grazing & you then come up to the 4 cottages currently available.

A single two bedroomed cottage is the first one you see, then the other two bedroomed cottage. The 3 bedroomed cottage is joined on to the 4 bedroomed cottage & adjoining the 4 bed, a new two bedroomed cottage should be open by the autumn which will allow the 4 bed cottage to be linked & make room for 12 people to stay at once.

Building work was taking place while we were hear but the only time we were aware of any noise was when in the kitchen. Otherwise it was mostly quiet.

We had booked the Barn House which is the 4 bedroomed cottage. The key can be found in the key box which you are given a code for before your arrival at the cottage. We then walked into our cottage which has a lovely lay out of a lounge area, stairs to upstairs bedrooms, through to the dining room & open planned kitchen. The layout gives enough privacy when in a big group.

Downstairs there is a lovely big wet room & toilet which our son who is 8 loved as the floor got wet. Through a glass door was the two downstairs bedrooms which had a fire door between the bedrooms & wet room, meaning we could have quietness in the bedrooms from the lounge area during the evening.

The master downstairs was a super king for the duration of our stay but can be a twin room, which was roomy & had plenty light from the two windows. The other room is a twin but is smaller but our son loved his room & the fact it had a ceiling window which needed a pole to open it.

The kitchen was well stocked with good knives, plenty cutlery, dinner wear & what felt like thousands of glasses. Everything you would want in your own kitchen was there & there was nothing you really needed to bring. A kettle, toaster, washing machine & dishwasher were all provided as well as a reasonable family sized fridge freezer.

The dining area sat 8 & was very comfortable to eat at. The double range oven & hob was lovely to use & the instructions can be found in one of the drawers. We only found this out after we hauled poor Elaine round to say the grill was broken & it wasn’t. Plenty pots & pans were available including a wok & plenty serving dishes. But it didn’t stop me bringing my much loved pampered chef stoneware.

Under the stairs is a lovely big cupboard with everything you need like a clothes horse, mop & bucket, pegs for hanging out your washing, High chair & travel cot if needed.

Upstairs you reach the top & find the most stunning bathroom. A corner bath with a good separate shower & a toilet & sink. The tiles & wall tiles have been chosen to perfection along with a lovely lighted mirror.

The twin bedroom is spacious with a good sized wardrobe & chest of drawers. The master bedroom has the most comfortable mattress & a gorgeous en-suite shower with the same stunning d├ęcor of the upstairs bathroom & the we troom.

The back garden is paved & very spacious with patio furniture. There is a retractable washing line & privacy was perfect.

For us the Barn House felt like home. Broadband in the lounge with a lovely flat screen TV with a DVD player & freeview was enough for the week. For me it’s the little details which Elaine has taken time over, such as making her own curtains to fit the windows & doors. They are beautifully made & keep the cottage cosy.

The furniture is very carefully chosen & fits in with the beamed ceiling & the lovely pictures & decorations around the cottage. When we arrived, Milk, Tea & Coffee were here for us which was a lovely welcome, & Elaine has spent time making up folders with local information to help people round the area.

There is also a choice of board games & books for those who wish them. If we had any problems Elaine was on hand to help or just a phone call away. Things were sorted quickly & without the fuss, we have had elsewhere.

The cottages are very eco, with underfloor heating & water controls from the main house. There is a Waste Centre where you can recycle most things & get rid of your waste as well as buy some hand sanitizer & eggs from the free roaming chickens.

The cottages face on to the farm & you can visit the cows, pigs & sheep & make sure you don’t run over the hens or rooster while they are wandering round the farm. The cottages are conveniently placed for Beverley but also Flamingo Land, Whitby & a short drive to the York Park & Ride & the Bridlington Park & Ride.

We’re already discussing when we can come back & wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the cottages to anyone who wishes to visit a lovely little place where so much thought has gone into them. Under a mile away in Walkington you will find a Costcutter & 3 pubs which serve food as well as a duck pond which we visited as we left to get rid of our left over bread.

I do apologize to Elaine as I have discovered my husband took the radox bath stuff out the bathroom unaware that it wasn’t ours. I’ll return a fresh one to you.Brilliant holiday!!!
