Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Nothing could have prepared us for the beauty of Wold Cottage, where Katrina welcomed us with warmth and kindness.’ A trusted reader echoes our inspectors’ endorsement for Katrina and Derek Gray’s Georgian manor house B&B in a rural setting outside a small village. Bedrooms, two in a converted barn, are named after former manor residents, and individually designed, some elegant and traditional, some more contemporary. Spacious, west-facing Miss Davy has ‘a super-king-size bed with brass headpost, marble fireplace, and full-length, thick gold curtains’. The ‘spotless’ bathroom had a freestanding bath, walk-in shower and high-quality toiletries including home-made lavender soap. On a chilly spring day a ‘roaring log and coal fire made for a homely environment’ in the sitting room, its walls hung with ‘tasteful original art and prints’. Breakfast brings Filey kippers and smoked haddock, traditional butcher’s sausages, free-range eggs, home-made jams, local honey. In a nearby field, on the spot where a meteorite fell in 1795, stands a commemorative column built by Major Edward Topham of Wold Cottage – who in turn is commemorated in a four-poster suite.

Guest comments

'Nothing could prepare us for the beauty of Wood Cottage where Katrina greeted us with warmth and great kindness. The mature g rounds are stunning and the atmosphere is peaceful. We slept in a converted barn, exquisitely furnished and with the most comfortable beds. Breakfast was delicious. ' - Dorothy Latham - June, 2017
'Hospitality, facilities and setting are first rate, as is value for money. Comfort and care for the customer are outstandingly good. Mrs Gray says: “This is our home, not a hotel.” It is that ambience that makes the place exceptionally attractive. ' - RG - February, 2017
'Our secret heavenly home form home. The hosts, Katrina and Derek, are excellent, as is the atmosphere of calm within their retreat. We have stayed in most of the rooms, and each is uniquely and beautifully furnished. We always sleep well. The breakfast comprises a wide range of locally sourced produce. Wold Cottage beats anywhere else we have stayed as we travelled around the world. ' - Derrick Priestley - September, 2013
