  • "Absolutely fabulous!"

    The hosts were very welcoming and there were some delicious cakes waiting for us which were scrumptious. The cottage was immaculate and very comfortable with everything that you would need for your holiday. The setting was absolutely beautiful picturesque on both sides of the windows with a beautiful barn owl flying out the back on most evenings. Perfect location for exploring Bridlington and surrounding areas. We cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. It was truly amazing, we were sad to leave.

    Thanks for your lovely feedback - it means a lot to us. You will always be very welcome here and many thanks for leaving the cottage immaculate. Jan and Andrew Property Owner

    A great property, immaculately clean and kitted out with everything you could need. Plenty of parking at the front, and nice gardens to sit out in (too cold for us to do this unfortunately) and a big play area for the kids. A super location as well for all of the east coast attractions. we loved staying here and will certainly consider going back.

    The owners were extremely helpful and friendly and have furnished and equipped the cottage to a very high standard. The beds and seating are very comfortable. There is lots to see and do in the area without having to travel very far, including the amazing Bempton Cliffs RSPB reserve. We didn’t manage to fit everything we wanted to do into the week so are hoping to stay again later in the year.
