Reviewed 7 August 2014

Host Vivian was most gracious when we called to say we wouldn't be able to arrive until 10:30 pm, and promptly showed us to our two rooms where we fell into wonderfully comfortable beds, exhausted. Next morning the big and delicious breakfast got us off to a great start, as we sat in the beautiful dining room. We were actually lodged in the family home as the cottages were occupied, but we were also treated warmly as family would be. The home is immaculate and very recently re-outfitted, the rooms spacious and beautifully appointed. So wonderfully quiet ! We used this as our 'home base' to see attractions further afield, but it became apparent to us that this B and B would become our favourite memory of our stay in Howden, even better than nearby (25 minutes away) York !! The grounds are exquisite, with the apple trees for which it is named, hanging with fruit which the two resident horses appreciate. Even Rowdy the dog is a treat. The area is surrounded by vast and beautiful agriculture endeavours, and is obviously a large energy production area. Stay here again ? Absolutely !! Recommend to others ? Unconditionally !! Just makes me wonder why it's only 4-star listed. It's a 5 star in our opinion.

A nice cottage for two, but I balk at paying £90 a night self catering for a view of a corrugated barn and dirt track!! Lots of farm traffic and poor wifi, TV reception.
The welcome pack was a handful of individual UHT milk servings and some biscuits!
Very poor value.
I might as well have been camping in a field, at least I would have been surrounded by greenery!!

Last evening on our Trans Pennine Trail bike trip. Somewhere dry to rest the bikes. Nice room and bathroom. The breakfast was excellent. Vivienne, the host, was welcoming - especially with the pot of tea on arrival. Access to the good local facilities will need a car so go prepared!

We looked for somewhere to stay for a birthday party in Howden and here is the best place near. Just 10 mins from Howden a perfect retreat! We were looking at the B&B (which is definitely stylish boutique style) and Vivienne offered us one of the cottages for almost the same price. So glad she did! We stayed in the spacious new 1 bed cottage which has all of the country classic simplicity with the elegant decor and mod-cons you could need .including wifi! Such a stunning, remotel location and a 5 star cottage...felt more than Scandinavia that Yorkshire! Gorgeous walks along the estuary too and so peaceful. If you want tranquility, welcoming hosts and luxury combined this is your place!

We stayed in one of the self catering cottages for 2 nights. The cottage was in outstanding condition, the décor was perfect and the whole property was spotless. I had some of the best sleep I have ever had due to the peace and tranquillity of the place. It really felt like a home from home. We received a lovely welcome from a very friendly dog that shows you exactly where to check in, very clever we thought. Contemplated bringing the dog home but decided we probably wouldn't be welcome back if we 'dog-napped' him.

Having booked the cottages for my wedding day 6 months prior to the occasion (deposit paid with paperwork for proof) I found out only a few days before the event, the owner had double booked. This was bad enough, but the owner then declared that she had another offer which 'was too good to turn down' with some builders needing accommodation for 12 weeks. This caused extreme stress and left my partner and I very upset. Fortunately we found alternative accommodation but this had caused tension and stress days before the biggest day of our lives. The owner denied any responsibility initially however after a few days then did admit a mistake and gave a refund of £100.

We had a lovely overnight stay here as part of a long weekend away. Great setting next to the Humber and within beautiful countryside. We received a warm welcome from Vivienne and our room was very large, bright and comfortable with everything that we could possible need. The breakfast was exceptional! Would definitely visit again.
