Location Details

The small, rural village of West Lutton is situated in the Yorkshire Wolds, close to Driffield. The village has one pub, but close by is the village of Weatherthorpe, which hosts a village shop, Post Office and excellent inns. Ideally located, West Lutton is just a short drive from the delightful historic market towns of Malton and Driffield, while the East coast resorts of Filey, Bridlington and Scarborough, with their long, safe, sandy beaches and seaside amenities, are also easily accessible.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.


Second stay in the wonderful Clara's Cottage for our family of two adults and one teenager. The cottage is well equipped with three good bedrooms and a sizeable kitchen yet still very cosy, full of personal touches and ideally placed to enjoy what had become the parched but still beautiful landscape of the Wolds and the wide sandy beaches of the Yorkshire coastline around Filey and Flamborough Head. Unlike our previous visit when the weather was cold and wet, we were also able to enjoy the lovely garden and summer house.

I have stayed at Clara's a few times now and it's a treat every time. It's ideally located between Malton, the Sledmere estate and the beach so you're spoiled for choice (and always have a back up option if the weather isn't on your side). The cottage itself is beautiful with lots of homely touches and a lovely garden to enjoy the fresh air in. I had the best nights sleep in a long time on my recent trip- everything about the cottage is comfortable! I'd recommend it to anyone and will definitely stay again.

Following recommendation from a friend, recently stayed for three nights at Clara's Cottage (04/02/22 to 07/02/22). A picturesque drive to the cottage through fields, forestry, hamlets and undulating terrain nicely sets you up for West Lutton, which is a quiet, well kept village with very accessible walks to the surrounding countryside and is also a good base to explore further afield. The cottage is approached by crossing a small wooden bridge across a stream. Entering the cottage you immediately sense and see the charm of the property, with beamed ceilings, sensitive restoration work, homely features, as well as a plentiful array of intriguing artefacts from 'years gone by'. The cottage has plenty of space, is comfortable to live in, with all mod cons (pretty large kitchen with all appliances) - the central heating was essential given the time of year. We made good use of the woodburner in the snug and the whirlpool bath was a bit of a treat. Inspite the blustery weather we also ventured out to the summer house and had a pleasant hour being sheltered and taking in the sun! I would echo the positivity of other reviews and look forward to a further visit.

An amazing cottage in a pretty area of the Wolds. The cottage has everything you could hope for and so much trouble has been taken to make your stay as perfect as possible for humans and equally pawfect for canine friends. There are so many fascinating places to visit within easy reach, and the local walks are stunning. Highly recommended.

Clara would have been proud of us. Three long-time female friends on a journey of self-discovery as one turned 60 ! Catherine's cottage was the prefect place to relax, unwind and laugh about our past escapades - and plan new ones. We ate breakfast outside in the sunshine (fabulous big garden) , set off each day on an adventure, and got cosy at night in our pjs in front of the log burner. In between we ate great food, drank copious amounts of wine and talked about how important friendship and love is . So what did we enjoy most about this quirky cottage?. Garden and summerhouse aside, it had to be the spacious kitchen, the whirlpool bath, the fresh flowers (and other homely touches) and the luxurious beds. The location was perfect for the coast and lovely market towns. As well as eat, drink and love, we shopped to our heart's content and marvelled at the fabulous gardens at Sledmere House . Thanks Catherine and Clara for some great memories !.

We've stayed at Clara's three times now, each time we fall a little more in love with this wonderful cottage. Deceptively spacious, the little cottage that you see from the front has two spacious double bedrooms as well as a single. With a large and so well equipped kitchen, dining room, and the snug with its log burner, there's plenty of space to go around. We love the garden and summer house too, just the place to relax with a G&T after a day of exploring the Yorkshire countryside and coast. You can see how much Catherine loves Clara's by the thought that has gone into making everything so perfect, and all the lovely little touches that make your stay that bit more special. As well, of course, as the welcome pack of Yorkshire goodies! Many thanks Catherine, can't wait till our next visit!

We have just got back from a wonderful week at Clara's Cottage, it is the most beautiful and charming place you could ever stay in. Catherine has thought of everything you could possibly need, just pack your clothes and go. I can guarantee you will get back from your holiday completely relaxed. I cannot wait to return I have fallen in love with Clara's and the gorgeous Yorkshire Wolds.

The location is great. We walked the coastal path in short sections and returned to the car via the cinder track. The cottage is very well equipped and all the accessories are chosen with love. The bedrooms are spacious and the kitchen has everything. Pretty summer house for your gin and tonic. Good parking.

40 years ago Catherine had THE best room on our corridor in university halls. It was full of quirky art, drama and literature treasures and tomes, fascinating nick-nacks and photographs showcasing her wonderful parents and family and oh-so tastefully decorated and furnished like student rooms just weren't. Moreover, there was always a welcoming smile, a warm hug, a friendly shoulder to cry on, sympathy and TEA on tap. (and Barry Manilow tunes on loop!) So our 5 days at Clara's was rather like deja-vu.......... Hospitality is a gift. Catherine has it in abundance: her sense of taste in decor, the warmth and charm that Clara's exudes, the finishing touches - welcome hamper, Christmas decs, CRAB LINES!... her 100% concern for her guests' well-being from the supe-comfy beds, through the relaxation of candles round the whirlpool bath to a full set of OS maps and a fully comprehensive Guests' Manual (worthy of a publisher in its own right) exemplify completely Catherine's all round generosity and Northern gorgeousness. We left feeling totally revived from the invigorating countryside and beach walks of the area, totally relaxed from the luxurious treasure that Clara's is and so lucky to have become lifelong friends with Catherine all those years ago.

From the moment we stepped inside Clara's Cottage to escape the rain, we felt like we were being hugged by this stunning cottage. The special touches turn this from a holiday home to your home for the time you are there. So comfy and cosy. Sofas you can easily relax on, a wood burner that crackles happily, a luxuriously comfortable bed that sends you off to sleep and a whirlpool bath to soothe after a walk. Nothing is forgotten and the decor is lovely. Due to the weather, we couldn't enjoy the lovely garden, but will when we return! Catherine makes you feel welcome from the moment you get in touch. Cannot find any fault with this idyllic place, you have to go to feel it's heart and magic.

What a gorgeous whimsical, romantic cottage! I stayed for a night with my puppy Dolly and we both had such a relaxing time at Clara's. The whirlpool bath added a touch of luxury and i adored the little touches such as books on the bedside tables and the hockney style painting above the fireplace. I hope to return when the weather is better to really make use of that gorgeous garden and summerhouse! It's a brilliant base for stunning beaches and gorgeous walks in the wolds, and Catherine is the perfect host, she couldn't do more!

We stayed at Claras cottage and found it to be a wonderful place to stay. Very comfortable and tastefully decorated, and off road parking which is always a bonus. Large fully equipped kitchen and loved the 2 sofas where you could stretch out on. Our bedroom was spacious, peaceful and the bed very comfortable. Make sure you try the spa bath, so relaxing. Loved the enclosed garden ideal for our dog and the summerhouse is a lovely touch. The cottage has walks right from the doorstep and the coast not too far away. We liked Hunmanby beach, clean and dog friendly. Catherine, the owner has been very helpful throughout and always on the other end of the phone for answering any questions or advice. Would highly recommend this gem of a cottage and we will hopefully be back.

Just had a wonderful few days at this little gem of a cottage with our little dog. It has been so lovingly put together and really feels like you are staying in a dear friend's home from home. We all had a great time exploring the surrounding area and enjoying winter days on various beaches which are all within easy reach. Thank you so much Catherine Pasek . We can't wait to visit again. Love Alison , Ian and Bellamy x x

5 stars. We spent a splendid weekend at Clara's Cottage, in the quiet village of West Lutton, which was just what we needed to recharge. Within easy (and beautiful) drives of plenty of tourist spots such as Sledmere House, and local villages and towns such as Malton. The coast is another short drive away for a bit of surf and turf action in Filey and Whitby or Scarborough. The perfect weekend getaway - just a two hour drive from West Yorkshire - great weekend away without the long drive, with so much on the doorstep. With two double rooms the cottage itself is great for a romantic break for two or a trip for two couples, with the third single ideal for families.

Rated by Chris B reviewed on 28th January 2019

I stayed 5 days in January and any time of year at Clara's would be heaven. Grade II listed cottage, packed with charm, beautiful, tasteful, quirky decor. Fabulous master bedroom with beamed ceilings, extremely comfortable beds, bath with whirlpool option, log-burner, TV wi-fi, garden, summer house, parking outside, lovely locals. Eggs for sale opposite, local pub in the village and best of all - it's in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds where in half an hour you can either be at the coast (Bridlington, Scarborough, Filey to name a few beaches) or deep in the stunning wolds villages, or in historic York in 45 mins. Sleeps 5, wonderful place for an exhilirating break. A must for couples, families, friends and it's pet friendly (one dog or cat!).

Just returned from spending a weekend away in Clara's Cottage. What a dream of a place a get away from it all little cottage set in beautiful country side. Clara's has everything you would possibly need, beautiful cosy living room with log burning stove. A large fitted kitchen with every thing you need, we loved cooking in it as it was so specious. Dining room with large dining table and chairs, we enjoyed sitting round the table with the candles lit to enjoy our evening meal, such a relaxing room. The bedrooms are amazing, decorated to a high standard, the beds so comfy you didn't want to get out of them. The Jacuzzi bath was the icing on the cake. If you've not been then you're missing out.

Beautiful cottage in lovely area with lovely walks. I spent a week here with my parents granddaughter and boxer dog. The cottage is full of charm and lovely comforts. The beds are very comfy and the whole place was clean and full of surprises. The garden was lovely for sitting in and even in late October we had sunshine to help take advantage of the garden furniture. The kitchen was large with plenty of cupboards and utensils etc. The welcome basket was a lovely surprise and the biscuits were very tasty. I would definitely book again .

Cosy cottage full of character and charm whilst also offering space sufficient for five adults and a baby both inside and out. Large exceptionally well equipped kitchen (everything you could ever need!) made cooking family meals really easy with all involved. Lovely garden with summer house lovely for sitting outside for a drink before dinner. Would highly recommend and revisit

Clara cottage is a wonderful cottage. Especially when the weather is not kind (rain and gales for the majority of our stay) It is cosy and comfortable equipped with everything you would ever need. We stayed for a week only the weather could have made it perfect. The location is superb for local beaches and the landscape is breath taking. I would definitely recommend a stay here the owner is wonderful and helpful and it is nothing is a problem. We hope to return

Just 10 miles from Yorkshire's picturesque foodie town of Malton, West Lutton is a charming farming village within easy reach of many tourist attractions. Clara's Cottage is surprisingly spacious, far bigger than expected from the front elevation. The accommodation, over two floors, is cosy and welcoming. The cottage has been decorated to create a charming home from home with everything that you might want whether it's for a weekend stay or a full week as we took. The large kitchen provides lots of space for preparation of all the gorgeous food that can be bought in Malton's fantastic food shops (great butcher and fish shop just off the square and an amazing bakery- Yo Bakehouse, with the most exquisite brownies) or form the farm shops around the area. The Smeg fridge freezer and dishwasher complement the cottage feel of the kitchen. The cosy living room with log fire is a great place to relax after a busy day sightseeing. We used the rear bedroom and the bed was really comfy and both the bedding and White Company towels add to the luxurious touches that abound. We didn't get enough time, or the right weather, to enjoy the enclosed rear garden, but it was perfect for the dog. From the cottage there are a range of walks suitable for all abilities and lots of rabbits for the dogs to chase. Clara's is a great place to stay and I would definitely return and recommend it to friends and family.

Cottage is so well equipped, cosy and comfortable. We contemplated kidnapping the Master bedroom bed it was so good! We arrived in snow and it was magical. Lovely walks on doorstep, with a friendly welcome and good food at local pub, The Three Tuns. Plenty to see and do nearby also, but the peace and quiet of the cottage and village are well worth staying in for! Hopefully will return-Thankyou

Clara's cottage was the best break away me and my partner has had, Catherine the owner of the cottage has made this beautiful place comfortable and fully equipped for everything you need, we didn't have to bring half the stuff we did, not only is the cottage lovely but the area is great for exploring and the little village has a great pub which is fog friendly and all the people in the village were so lovely and helpful and you can get fresh eggs every morning from the neighbour across the road! I would highly recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be coming back. Also my family and friends can't wait to book this place also. 5 stars to you Catherine!!

I cannot recommend this cosy, characterful cottage highly enough. As soon as you open the information folder you feel that you know the feisty previous owner, Clara. The cottage is very well decorated and equipped. The attention to detail is wonderful; a welcome gift of local ale and tea awaits you and even the four legged visitors are welcomed with a tin of dog treats. The kitchen has everything you could wish for including a Nespresso coffee machine which was a lovely treat. After a day out exploring the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds it was wonderful to return to Clara's to light a real fire or enjoy a relaxing whirlpool bath. The cottage is situated in the small village of West Lutton where you really feel you can escape from 'the Treadmill.'

Nestled in the green folds of the Yorkshire Wolds sits this treasure of a holiday cottage. As soon as we arrived I could feel myself start to relax. The cottage has a lovely, homely ambience. It is furnished with love and a sensitive touch that is sympathetic to the age of the property. The kitchen is large, spacious and very well-equipped, containing all the kitchenware and utensils we needed, and more. The sitting room is cosy with a wood-burning stove and comfy sofas to sink into at the end of a busy day's sightseeing. The enclosed garden with summer house is a great added bonus and a pleasant place to spend an hour or two on a sunny afternoon. The cottage is very well-placed to visit the many places of interest in the surrounding area. We visited Bempton Cliffs RSPB reserve (with puffins) and Scarborough which are both within easy driving distance, together with Flamborough Head and Filey. Sledmere House with its gardens and farm shop is not more than a 10 minute drive away. We enjoyed a very comfortable, relaxing week at Clara's. It was a delightful way to start our discovery of this lovely part of England. We hope to be making a return visit soon.

We have just returned from another lovely week in Clara's cottage. It is very comfortable with a secure, dog friendly garden. There are Wold walks on the doorstep with potential rabbit and hare sightings to keep a dog very happy and just over 20 mins drive away is the beautiful coast with fabulous beaches. Perfect.

Driving off the busy roads soon the world goes quiet. Pretty scenery along winding roads. Arrive at a chocolate box village to find Clara's nestled in its heart. The cutest white cottage. Entering the cottage it's warmth, cosiness with touches of luxury seems to rush to greet. A week of walking, beach, seaside, beautiful cuountryside, pretty villages. Just perfect
