  • "This is such a beautiful cottage to stay at."

    Perfect location to all amenities shops take aways & a lovely walk to the beach. Close to all attractions for us as a family. Everything you need in the cottage and it’s cosy & so comfortable. Quiet street easy to park. Will be booking again. The owner was friendly and provided me with lots of information.

    Thank you for your lovely feed back it’s much appreciated.I look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

    Mean with heating in a cold property even got a phone call mid holiday from Sykes asking why heating was being put high spying on guests with a Google hive and ring door bell cameras made us feel uncomfortable never again

    Thank you for your feedback. Many properties have a Hive/Nest heating system. The heating at the property was registering 32 degrees which is why a courtesy call was made asking to turn it down as being on this high could damage the boiler and is certainly not environmentally friendly to be this high. The heating can be on 24/7 at an ambient temperature if needed.The camera is for security only and is pointing sideways on the key box.This is purely for guests safety. Property Owner

  • "Great little cottage in a great location."

    Top bedroom is open to the stairs so possibly not ideal for toddlers/young kids. Other than that it's spot on

  • "On first arriving didn't no if we could get any parking,lucky enough we was outside cottage,only park for one hour when yo see parking attendent,free parking at Stepney Grove around the corner."

    Wasn't intending to cook while we was there,just breakfast maybe,had a walk local to find pub food, found one what served food at tea time. Accommodation was reasonably,brought my own pillow,but pillows provided where bit flat not comfortable,bed was good, duvet was a winter one,so was very hot to sleep in,asked for summer duvet or sheet to be cooler at night. Bathroom was to a very good standard,but found water was not flowing properly,so lifted plug hole found alot of hairs in there blocking water flow. Asked Lucy about duvet and cleaning,she was brilliant,came around same day thank you Lucy.when we settled down at night to watch abit of tv, the day after,asked neighbours either side of cottage if sound tv was to lound,couldn't get any answer,so asked hairdresser next she door she said walls are very thin can hear everything ,got to talk to one neighbour said was loud the first night,so next night he slept in different room,put voulme down to respect him sorry.I would say Betty's Cottage is upto a very good standard i would love to stop again.

  • "Holiday was relaxing and a nice break away from the bussel of current life."

    Due to it being such an old cottage and as a man over 6ft tall I did bump my head on several occasions but this could be seen as part of the charm. I would definitely stay here again.

  • "The owner has done a lovely job renovating the property and drawing out its potential."

    The living space is small, so seating for 5 may be difficult and it is not really that suitable for eating in. The bedrooms are quite spacious, so it is a great property to use as a base. Short-term parking can be had just opposite, and there is a free carpark just around the corner. If you do not like cooking, there are a number of take away places nearby as well, although we tended to eat out. We did walk to the beach once, with a couple of kids, and it took about 30 minutes. There are quite a few places to see, with Scarborough and York being relatively close. There is no outside space worth speaking about. This was not an issue, since we only used the accommodation. Areas where the accommodation could improve are: include 2 pillows per person, 1 seemed a little stingy; look to improve the size and quality of the towels, they were very thin and even my 9 year old daughter thought the main towel was a hand towel. Finally, consider adapting your shower to include a door. This is not essential for your guests' comfort, but you may find some less careful guests end up causing floods.

  • "This little cottage on the High Street was exactly as pictured and has been restored to a good standard, but keeping it's quirkiness."

    It stayed quite cool even in the current high temperatures. I did find that the TV being high on the wall made it difficult to watch. The kitchen is small but well equipped with everything you need. As previously mentioned the outdoor area was disappointing and an eyesore, cigarette ends everywhere, the property particulars does say no smoking in or around the cottage. You would also have to sit among the bins and the neighbours washing strung across the alley. Maybe a small screen across and a few potted plants would make this area more appealing. The bedrooms were quite large and the beds very comfortable, not sure about the brushed cotton bedding in the summer though, there is also a lack of coat hangers, there was only one in the wardrobe. There is also an iron and ironing board in the wardrobe which isn't mentioned in Sykes description, also it says there is a sofa bed which there isn't. The bathroom is modern, with a large open shower area. Note to owner, the shower tray needs sealing at floor level. All in all we enjoyed our stay in Betty's Cottage, and the old town, we would definitely stay again. I would also like to mention Lucy, the cleaner, for doing a good job.

  • "The cottage is exactly as it appears in the photos."

    The owner has given a lot of care and attention when updating the building and it looks amazing! We loved how small, cosy and quirky it is. The cottage is positioned in the centre of the High Street so you are surrounded by shops, pubs and restaurants which is great. The downside to being on the High Street is that you cannot park outside of the property between 8am and 6pm. We found a space on an adjoining street easily but for some people this may be an issue. The property is said to have a garden but we found this to be an alley way which was shared with a neighbour. There is a table and chairs in the alley way but you would be sitting in amongst some ladders, stacks of roof tiles and the bins for the property if you were to use it. There were a lot of cigarette butts on the floor so this appears to be a handy smoking area for those who indulge but I wouldn't suggest it to be a useable space for anything else. We had our 7 month old son with us and the owner supplied a cot which was brilliant and saved us from taking our own. However, while the property itself is child friendly the neighbours clearly aren't! On our penultimate morning our son was crying for a bottle, a situation which we always resolve in less than 5 minutes. The neighbour felt the need to bang on the wall during this short period of noise adding to the stress of trying to feed a crying baby. After this incident we attempted to not be in the property as much as possible as we did not want to offend the neighbour. This slightly spoiled the end of our stay as we were on edge if the baby made any noise. Overall we did enjoy our time at the property and it looks fantastic and is in a nice location

The property

Nestled in the old town of Bridlington is this fantastic Grade II listed cottage, 48 High Street.

Benefitting from both a central and coastal location, this three-storey cottage is ideal for families and friends.

Park up on the roadside and discover the white-washed terrace, with a grey door and duck-egg windows.

This lovely home is brimming with character, with its beamed ceilings throughout and a crackling woodburning stove.

Step inside into the sitting room, where you can unwind on the sumptuous sofa as the woodburning stove warms your toes.

Moving through the property, locate the contemporary kitchen, housing an electric oven and gas hob to whip up tasty meals and a washing machine so you don't have to pack your whole wardrobe.

For some fresh air step out into the small, rear patio and perch on the furniture to enjoy the final moments of the sun.

As the sky grows dark, retreat indoors, and climb upstairs to the first floor to find the shower room, where you can wash the day away.

The first floor also hosts a spacious king-size bedroom with storage to house your personal belongings and views of the charming street; offering antique stores and art galleries.

Venture upstairs to the second floor to discover a twin bedroom with A-framed beams and sloped-ceilings for an intimate feel.

In the morning, make use of the kitchen facilities to conjure a home-cooked breakfast or a take a short stroll to a quaint café to let someone else do the cooking.

You'll be located on a historic high street in the heart of Bridlington, with architecture dating back to 1640, and impressive, traditional pubs to dine in such as The Lamp Restaurant, the Black Lion, and The Board Inn.

There is also a selection of small, independent galleries to explore and The Bayle Museum, a building dating back to the 1100s, now housing a selection of local artefacts and close to Bridlington Priory.

If you prefer cooking at home, there are supermarkets, convenience stores, and a local shop at the end of the road to stock up on essentials.

For more local attractions, scenic views of chalk-cliffs can be admired from Bridlington South Beach, where you can build sandcastles and enjoy an ice-cream on the attractive promenade.

Visit the Grade I Georgian house of Sewerby Hall & Gardens to marvel at landscaped gardens and wild-life lovers can spend the afternoon at Bridlington Animal Park.

Jump in the car to the seaside resort of Filey, test your swing at the golf course, explore the peaceful Glen Gardens and wander along the promenade to see a collection of art.

Why not spend the day at award-winning beaches in the traditional town of Scarborough, home to a medieval castle, fascinating aquarium, and an exciting water park for a splash?
