Bridlington 2 miles. A small group of three mews properties and large farmhouse set around an attractive courtyard, in a quiet position in Bessingby village, two miles from the coastal town of Bridlington and just one mile from Bridlington's Old Town. Access is via a private arched entrance, with courtyard off road parking outside each property. Sympathetically converted from former stables and farmhouse, the properties are individually styled to provide comfortable and homely holiday cottages, suitable for couples or families wanting to stay in a tranquil and peaceful setting, but be within a five minute drive to the popular and bustling seaside resort of Bridlington. The three smaller cottages benefit from all ground floor accommodation, whilst the larger one can cater for family reunions or groups of friends. Each property has access to a large, communal lawned garden to the rear with mature trees, shrubs and seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs that guests are welcome to pick, plus an assortment of free extras, such as a croquet set, and beach items on a first come, first served basis. There is also a barbecue and furniture for you to sit, relax, and meet the neighbours and a summerhouse which makes a fantastic bird hide. There is no pub or shop in the village, however you will find the shop and the dog friendly pub is less than a mile away. The traditional seaside town of Bridlington has long sandy, award-winning beaches, shops, pubs, tea rooms and the Spa Theatre. Stroll along the promenade, build sandcastles on the beach, enjoy a trip into the bay on the Yorkshire Belle, or for the more adventurous, try the pirate ship or the speedboat. The quieter resort of Filey lies a little further along the coast and is like stepping back in time, with its quaint coble landing, cobbled roads down to the beach and its brightly painted beach huts. Nature lovers must visit Bempton Cliffs RSPB reserve, with its wonderful colonies of nesting sea birds, including puffins in the summer months and the largest mainland colony of gannets in the country, whilst the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Wolds are ripe for exploring. With many attractions in the area, these courtyard cottages provide an excellent base for a varied and happy holiday.
Twitchers’ Den provides all ground floor accommodation for couples with entry via a patio door from the courtyard.
With modern furnishings, this end-terrace cottage has a cosy sitting room with a woodburning stove set in a feature brick fireplace and a dining area is to one side.
The separate kitchen has a breakfast bar for alternative dining, whilst the contemporary shower room is fully tiled, with a heated towel rail.
Looking out from the double bedroom is a tree where the Jenny Wren has her nest.
