Horseshoe Cottage is nestled in quiet and picturesque Nordham, on the outskirts of North Cave near Beverley. Thoughtfully decorated to add to the cottage character, it is warm and inviting, offering homely and comfortable accommodation for couples and families. It has an adjoining cottage, Bay Tree Cottage (CC253005) sleeping 2+ for larger parties. The south facing courtyard garden is perfect for lying on sunbeds, using the log BBQ or enjoying a Pimms in the evening sun. There is much to offer in this beautiful part of the world, with some lovely countryside and stream side walks direct from your front door including the Wetlands Bird Sanctuary. Great cycling on quiet roads, enjoying the tracks of the Tour de Yorkshire, and varied cycle routes.

Situated just two miles from the M62 makes it easy to get to, and well located to explore the area. It is really close to the market towns of Beverley and Market Weighton, both very popular. The historic city of Hull, city of culture in 2017, is only 20 minutes away and York only 45 minutes away. Both offer many different experiences: The Deep, a day at the races, York dungeons, Viking Museum or retail therapy, theatre or live music. It’s only 35 minutes from the coast for a grand day out; a walk on the beach and fish and chips! If it’s an activity holiday you are looking for why not try Kayaking, or clay pigeon shooting just outside the village, even diving! There’s a play area for children around the corner, with a stream for pooh sticks on the way. North Cave is the Gateway to East Yorkshire’s Nature Triangle and we have a variety of wildlife in our woodland which you can visit, or you can see the bird life at the wetlands where there are stunning sunsets. NGS garden Fawley House is just next door for an arranged visit and there are two garden centres in the village. A veg basket is offered during your stay in the growing season from the gardens at Fawley House. Drewton’s farm shop is really popular for food shopping and for their award winning restaurant. There’s a pub in the village and the very popular Hotham Arms serving great food, a short walk away in the next village. Other pubs serving food are in South Cave, Ellerker, Newbald and Sancton, just over 3 miles away from the property.
This property can be booked together with Bay Tree Cottage (253005) to accommodate up to eight people.
Nordham Cottages - Bay Tree Cottage and Horseshoe Cottage, have been short-listed for the East Yorkshire Tourism Awards in February 2016, in the Remarkable Self Catering Provider category.

The Vale of York is easily explored on foot or by bike. At Sutton Bank on the edge of the Hambleton Hills, the vale spreads out below with the Yorkshire Dales rising up in the distance and a lush green view that stretches for miles, including the White Horse carved in chalk on the hillside.
