About our home

Willow Cottage has been on the village green of Bishop Burton for over 250 years. Originally built as a cottage for workers at the Manor House, it is now our second home, loved and enjoyed by family and friends. Willow Cottage is semi-detached and is on the left, with a separate gate into the garden behind the wall. The adjoining cottage is called Rose Cottage.

The cottage faces south and is bathed in sunshine all day. It is gas centrally heated, with a large Jotul logburner in the family room. The garden behind the wall is completely private with only a field behind it.

There is a family room downstairs, linking to the kitchen. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a small bathroom, with shower head in bath. The larger bedroom has a double bed, and the second smaller room can accommodate one adult or two children. Outside, a few steps away from the back door, is an outhouse with a washing machine, toilet and large laundry sink.

Bishop Burton is two miles away from the historic market town of Beverley, on the A1079 road from Hull (10 miles) UK city of culture 2017, to the Roman walled city of York (25 miles). The small village has a church dating back to the 13th century, a shop/post office and a traditional English pub, the ‘Altisidora’. It is a rural farming area, with the Yorkshire coast just 15 miles away. There is an hourly bus service between Hull and York, with nearby train stations at Beverley and York. There is easy access from the Ferry at Hull, and the trains offer a good link to Eurostar at London St Pancras.
