    “Lovely spacious well equipped cottage and great location”
    Such a lovely cottage . We , as grandparents ,had our own "wing" And daughter with her husband and the 2 young children had theirs. This was perfect planning for us all as we had our own shower room and they had their bathroom. Lovely large well equipped modern kitchen . all very clean and welcoming . The children loved the outdoor area ,and the ponies in the adjacent field became their friends very quickly! Perfect base for the Coast as well as York and also a trip to Flamingo Land ...

About the location


Hornsea 6 miles; Bridlington 9 miles; Driffield 11 miles; Beverley 15 miles.

The village of Skipsea is situated in the Yorkshire Wolds, in a typically rural setting surrounded by rich, agricultural land, yet Skipsea also sits within one mile of the beach and is close to the cliffs of the North Sea. The village has its own Post Office, general store and tea room, a hairdresser’s, a fish and chip shop, and a pub. Many of the houses in the village, both old and new, use cobbles from the sea shore in the building. Just outside the village are the remains of Skipsea Castle. The surrounding countryside is excellent for walking and cycling, whilst the nearby seaside towns of Bridlington and Filey boast long sandy beaches and numerous resort attractions. The Deep Submarium at Hull, Sledmere House and Burton Constable Hall are within 20 miles, whilst the shops, cathedral and museum of historic York, the resort town of Scarborough and the North Yorks Moors Steam Railway at Pickering are within an hour’s drive, and Whitby is just a little further, making Skipsea a superb base for a relaxing holiday.
