The property

A magnificent period property, centrally situated in the small village of Bempton, in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Fully refurbished and full of immense character and charm, with the original oak fireplace and open fire in the living room, bay windows, spacious rooms, and a wonderful conservatory leading to a delightful enclosed garden, this is a fabulous family retreat.

The house was the former manor house in the village and has a separate cottage attached on one side.

The village hosts a local shop/Post Office, and Bempton is famous for Bempton Cliffs Nature Reserve - spectacular chalk cliffs home to one of the largest colonies of nesting seabirds in England.

Follow the local nature trails or enjoy fun-filled family days at nearby Bridlington and Filey, with their award-winning beaches, numerous shops and eateries.

For a little culture, visit the many historic houses in the area or take a trip to the delightful City of York.

About the location

The small village of Bempton lies between Filey and Flamborough, on the lovely East Coast of Yorkshire. With traditional cottages and a local shop, Bempton and the surrounding area have much to offer. Bempton Cliffs Nature Reserve, famous for its spectacular colonies of puffins and other seabirds nesting high on the chalk cliffs, is an absolute must for nature lovers, and there is plenty of good walking country for ramblers, with the spectacular North Yorkshire Moors and Yorkshire Wolds within easy reach. The area holds a wealth of historic houses including Sewerby Hall and gardens, and Burton Agnes Hall, both close to the village. The seaside resorts of Bridlington and Filey, both with superb, safe, sandy beaches and excellent amenities, have much to offer the whole family. Enjoy a spot of fishing, a boat ride, or explore the caves at Flamborough. A wonderful area to discover all year round.
