Had a lovely time, cabin was nice and cozy, and had an amazing welcome into the cabin. And the view and surrounding area was very scenic.
I've stayed in the straw bale cabin several times over a number of years and also in the eco pods (basic single room accommodation). Carol, the host, was always most welcoming and helpful ensuring my stay went well. The accommodation has recently been improved with a TV but was already of a high standard. The cabin is adjacent to a pool which features local wildlife and the two farm cats who keep to themselves. There are bicycles available and local walking opportunities which are highlighted in the plentiful visitor information in the cabin. Howden rail station is around a 15 minute walk away, offering regular services to Hull to the east, Leeds to the west and York to the north-west. Numerous opportunities for visits to places of interest inland and on the coast. I shall be staying there again.
Our weekend away at the cabin was perfect. You can't help but relax in such a beautiful tranquil setting, it was lovely sitting outside with a cup of tea watching the swallows diving over the pond. The cabin felt much bigger than it looked from the outside, and was better than we imagined from the photos. The lovely deepset windows gave it a cosy feel and everything was clean and fresh. We had a great day out in York one day and walked round Howden the other, both had lots of character, though we could have done with another day in York to see everything. Joe was really helpful. We will definitely come back again.
Since my last stay the cabin has been beautifully refurbished whilst still retaining that calming, relaxing, home away from home feel. Very well appointed, cosy and spotless, always a pleasure to stay in a straw home.
It's a joy to watch the birds from the deck each morning and to settle in to a quieter way of life for a few days.
Buttercup is very well placed for heading off to York and the Yorkshire coast and I would thoroughly recommend it. Great cottage, great hosts and excellent, convenient location.
