  • "A very pleasant cottage in a quite and peaceful village with very little passing traffic."

    Nice garden and sitting area for warmer days. Although the cottage is kept to be true to it`s period there are all the modern conveniences that you would expect. Every thing was clean and well kept. Lizzy And Peggy were very helpful and welcoming. The location is excellent for North & East Yorkshire seaside outings and also inland for the Wolds.

  • "Everything about this place was superb - the cottage, the owners, the village and the general location."

    The attention to detail was excellent, and the place was spotlessly clean throughout. Some really good local information and lovely welcome items provided, and it was all so well organised by Lizzy who looks after the place herself. It became like a home which was hard to leave at the end of the week.

  • "This is a lovely cottage with a beautiful garden in a small quiet village with no through traffic on the road outside."

    The cottage is decorated to a very high standard - including fresh flower arrangements, it is also spotlessly clean. Although it was the end June we put the heating on but didn't use the log burner, its an old building with thick walls which don't warm up very quickly so I suggest that you pack an extra jumper. The bed was comfortable for us - but we aren't very tall. The wi-fi was fine, but the phone signal (Virgin) was sometimes a bit hit and miss. The experience with Sykes was OK but even after I had booked the cottage, I was still being sent emails suggesting that I should book it and we didn't need an email the day before departure telling us how to vacate the property - the house owner had left clear, simple instructions which were all we needed.

  • "The cottage was located in a quite country village which added to our enjoyment."

    The cottage is an ideal base for coast and country days out. The supermarket is only a 10 minute drive and the owners are lovely and helpful people.

  • "The beautiful cottage is in a lovely setting, very quiet, very quaint village."

    Lizzie could not have made us more welcome and the arrangements beforehand were helpful. We were extremely lucky with the weather. As mentioned by a previous guest, I also found the double bed short with the wooden board at the end of the bed. The bed was comfortable and ideal for a less tall person. The garden with seats and a parasol were idyllic. My wife and I felt very comfortable and enjoyed our relaxing stay. Lizzie's mother ,who lives next door, was lovely. The whole experience felt good value for money. A lovely holiday Derek and Dawn

  • "Lizzy was very helpful, contacting us beforehand to discuss central heating times and access to the cottage."

    The accommodation was very good - comfortable with all the facilities that we needed. The location in the village of Boynton is ideal for exploring the East Yorkshire Coast and Wolds. There are also pleasant footpaths to be discovered directly from the village. Well reccommended. Mick and Pauline Smith

  • "Gorgeous cottage in a beautiful area - a quiet picture-postcard village."

    Walks straight from the cottage into unspoilt countryside gave us sightings of hares and a barn owl. Close to the wonderful Bempton Cliffs with outstanding bird watching and photographic opportunities, and to stunning coastal views. Lizzie and her mum made sure we had everything we needed, and the arrangements of fresh flowers were a lovely additional touch. We’d have absolutely no hesitation in recommending The White Cottage to anyone.

  • "We stayed for a week at White Cottage just after Covid restrictions were finally eased, and the accommodation was very clean."

    The whole process felt Covid secure. Lizzy our host was very accommodating and welcoming, meeting us in the beautiful garden on arrival and being on hand if needed. The cottage is spacious and beautiful, full of character with many original features. It was rather cold but warmed up with the heating system, and the wood burner is very cosy (fuel and kindling is extra). The kitchen is well equipped and we ended up cooking every day. The washing machine is easy to use - don't forget your laundry detergent! The only reason for not giving full marks for comfort is the double bed footboard, which being tall was awkward in an otherwise comfortable bed. It would have been nice also to have a working bathroom fan. Boynton is a tiny hamlet, very peaceful with lovely local walks, yet easily accessible. Nearest shops are in Bridlington (Morrisons etc) and Driffield is also within easy reach. The highlight for us was the wildlife, at Flamborough Head, Bempton cliffs and even in the local fields where we saw spring hares and a tawny owl!

    We arrived during a cold wet spell in June yet the cottage was warm, the heating switched on and perfectly timed to go on for part of the night and day. The cottage is very spacious and decorated and furnished with exquisite taste. Being in a hamlet with no through traffic, it's perfect for anyone wanting peace and quiet, yet not isolated. It even has an old fashioned scented rose growing over the front door. The cottage is located perfectly for easy access to the Wolds, coastal towns of interest such as Whitby, Robins Hood Bay, Filey, Bridlington with memories of Dad's Army being filmed here, sandy beaches, several Stately Homes, a Steam Railway from Pickering to Whitby, stopping at Gothland where Heartbeat was filmed. There isn't time to see it all in one week.

Bridlington 3 miles.

An idyllic, white-washed, detached cottage, in the sleepy village of Boynton, just three miles from the seaside town of Bridlington.

Warm and inviting, this traditional cottage near Bridlington is well located for families wanting peace and tranquility, but is still within easy access to the coast, the Yorkshire Wolds and the many attractions in the area.

Retaining many original features, this Bridlington cottage has been lovingly renovated, each room tastefully decorated and furnished in period style to maintain the traditional charm of the property.

With spacious accommodation, this Bridlington cottage has a well-equipped kitchen with breakfast area and a separate dining room, boasting the original stone-flagged floor and Yorkist range, whilst the old dairy leading off, provides extra storage.

The comfortable sitting room in this cottage near Bridlington has a cosy woodburning stove - a delightful room to sit and relax in after a busy day sightseeing!

To the front of the cottage is a large, lawned area with cottage garden flowerbeds and furniture, perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee whilst discussing the day’s activities.

A few minutes’ drive brings you to the popular resort of Bridlington, with its wide sandy beaches, long promenades, historic Old Town and traditional family seaside fun, whilst a little further are Scarborough, Filey and Whitby.

Inland, the market town of Beverley is well worth visiting, as is the beautiful walled city of York.

Why not enjoy a bracing clifftop walk at Flamborough or a trip to the RSPB reserve at Bempton, with its colony of nesting sea birds, including puffins and kittiwakes.

For culture lovers, guests at this Bridlington cottage are spoilt for choice with many stately homes in the area, including Burton Agnes Hall, Sledmere House, Sewerby Hall and Castle Howard (from Brideshead Revisited).
