Good Hotel Guide Review
This ‘cottage’ is a handsome Georgian manor house with elegant rooms and peaceful views over landscaped gardens and surrounding farmland. While certainly gracious, with high-ceilinged rooms, large sash windows and high-quality paintings and furnishings, it has a warm and welcoming air. Katrina and Derek Gray emphasise it’s their home and greet guests with tea in the fire-warmed sitting room. Bedrooms, divided between the main house and a converted barn, range from traditional, with antiques and silky drapes – one has a four-poster – to more contemporary, where neutral colours are jazzed up with a tartan-covered armchair or a bold throw. All but one are spacious, with armchairs and sofas, and most have a bath and shower; all have robes and fresh milk. Breakfast in the large dining room, with its Georgian-red walls and garden views, is a handsome affair. Guests sit at individual tables, there is no buffet, all food is ordered, prepared in the kitchen and served to guests. The menu is a feast of local produce including Yorkshire ham and cheese, kippers, Filey Bay crab and boiled egg, as well as home-made bread and preserves. It’s enough to set you up for a day exploring the coast and Wolds.
