Milliner's Cottage

Pocklington: a bustling market town

A cosy Victorian cottage

Milliner’s Cottage is a two bedroom terrace house built in the 1840s and packed with charm and comfort. Located on a quiet street just a minute’s walk from the centre of town the cottage is ideally situated for shops, cafes, restaurants, the Arts Centre, pubs and more.

The open plan ground floor includes a living area with a wood burner, TV and two really comfy recliner sofas to help you relax. The cottage kitchen is large and well equipped while the stylish dining table with wheel-back chairs gives more than enough elbow room for a party of four! The bookshelves are stocked with a selection of books – we’d like to think there is something for everyone on those shelves, but if you have recommendations for a gap we have left then we’d love to hear them! The wifi is fast, free and gives a good signal throughout the property. The flat screen TV has iPlayer, All4 and ITVHub, and now also includes free Netflix.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms (a double and a twin). Each bed has a pocket-sprung mattress and crisp cotton bedding for a really comfortable night’s sleep. The family bathroom is well lit and features a full sized bath with a fixed shower over.

The back door leads into the courtyard garden. This is a very private space, with a covered area for bikes and a deck that is the ideal spot for catching the evening sun.

If you are looking for a comfortable, quiet cottage with modern facilities given a Victorian twist then we think you will find Milliner’s Cottage a lovely place to book for your stay.

What our guests say...

* * * * * Rebecca – A true home from home!

A clean, comfy, warm, cosy cottage. A true home from home. Attention to detail right down to the dishwasher tablets. Brilliant! (Our kids loved the toys!)
January 2018

* * * * * Kath – We love the garden!

A very cosy and comfortable cottage – we didn’t need the fire despite the freezing temperatures outside. We love the garden – we’ll just have to come back to enjoy the space when it is warmer.
December 2017

* * * * * Paolo – We loved it!

Thank you very much. You take care of this house. It’s clean and we appreciate that. We loved it!
December 2017

* * * * * Mary – Fantastic!

Helen and Patrick, the cottage is fantastic! So homely, warm and comfy! All the little touches make it from one home to another. You made us feel very welcome and accommodated all our needs as a family. We would definitely like to book again as it is a great location and the village is lovely too. We would have no hesitation in recommending this to our friends and family. Merry Christmas!
December 2017

* * * * * Alex – The cottage was lovely!

Thank you for a really lovely, relaxing holiday. The cottage was lovely: clean and well equipped with everything we needed. Thank you for the very warm welcome. We would definitely recommend to friends and would love to stay again if we are ever in the area.

ps the toys were also very useful!

* * * * * Yvonne – a great find!

Helen and Patrick (the owners) made us feel very welcome. They have obviously put a lot of care and consideration into making Milliner’s Cottage homely and an exceptionally comfortable place to stay. We only had a short stay so didn’t have time to enjoy the log burner but did enjoy the relaxing recliner sofas and flicking through the book selection. Although Pocklington has a choice of places to eat, we decided to take a short walk to Sainsburys to buy food to cook and eat in the cottage. The kitchen was immaculately clean and well equipped. The following day we had a pleasant lunch at the World Peace Cafe at Kilnwick Percy Hall. Helen helped us with directions to walk there. This was a lovely walk along part of the Pilgrimage of Grace (one of the Top 10 Trail Experiences) with some great views across the Yorkshire Wolds. There are so many worthwhile places in and around Pocklington to visit. I would definitely recommend Millner’s Cottage as a base to enjoy these.

* * * * * Sarah – a superb stay!

What a superb stay! The cottage looks and is amazing. The beds were very comfy and we were kept warm all night. The oven and dishwasher were very straight forward and easy to use. I had a lovely shower with plenty of hot water. Our leisurely Sunday morning comprised a cup of tea whilst sitting on the recliners eating the freshly made buns which were a nice touch on our arrival. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
