Reedness Hall Cottage

A self catering holiday cottage in rural east Yorkshire

Situated in the quiet farming village of Reedness, Reedness Hall Cottage was recently converted to high standard accommodation for two people, only 200yds from the banks of the River Ouse, where container ships sail through the fields.

The cottage has had a variety of uses over the years, originally being part of the main Georgian Farmhouse but is now quite separate, having been lovingly converted into fully equipped accommodation with all mod cons.

The cottage is ideally situated for exploring the historic Cities of York, Beverley, Hull and Lincoln, the East Coast resorts of Whitby, Scarborough, Filey, Bridlington, North Yorks Moors. The West Yorkshire cities of Leeds, Sheffield, Bradford are less than an hour away.

This part of East Yorkshire or “The Marshlands” as it is known locally is an unspoilt and undiscovered part of Yorkshire but with easy access to many historic and leisure attractions. The area was drained by Cornelius Vermuyden in the 1600’s for Charles 1.

The RSPB Reserve at Blacktoft Sands is but a gentle walk along the river bank where the tidal reedbeds are host to many resident and migrant birds, Avocets, Reed Warblers, Marsh Harriers, Bitterns to name a few.

At the same time you may well see large container and freight ships from all parts of the world, sailing in and out of the Port of Goole, being a few miles up river from the start of The Humber.

There are an abundance of places to eat out either at lunch time or in the evening from simple Pub food to Michelin star restaurant. As part of the information provided in the Cottage there are lists of suggested places to eat together with local attractions.
