  • "Ruth is a super host and cannot do enough to help you."

    She gave us useful ideas as to where we could go. The house was lovingly furnished and it has a chaise long my husband and I loved sitting in. She left flowers and biscuits for us as well as milk and wine.

    ! We have stayed at vacation homes for over 20 years and Postman's Cottage takes TOP billing. EVERYthing you need including a washer & tumble dryer and the house is clean, clean, clean! Ruth is a super hostess who thinks of all the thoughtful extras. Our first time to Bridlington- a great seaside destination and the cottage is a short walk to it all- Spa, beaches and Old Town/Priory. Glad to be returning for another visit to Postman's Cottage.

    It's been a pleasure to have you staying at Postman's Cottage for both your original booking and your further extended stay in the UK. I'll look forward to seeing you again very (very!) soon for your next visit! I'm so pleased it was everything you needed it to be and also that you enjoyed Bridlington and the local area. Your review is very much appreciated and your comments are lovely, thank you. Thank you for taking the time to send online. Property Owner

    Per other reviews extremely clean and tidy. Plenty of utensils. Welcome pack very nice. Comfortable sofas. lovely kitchen. Loved the real plants in the house. Plenty of room for the dogs outside. Garden lovely and very safe for dogs. Walking distance to new town and old town. Tesco superstore over the road. Lots of nice places to eat and drink. Ruth helpful with places to eat out and letting us know when property ready. One of the nicest homes we have stayed. First visit to brid won't be our last.

    Great to hear your first visit to Bridlington was a good one with more still left to explore on future visits.

  • "The Postman's Cottage is a fantastic little gem hidden away in Bridlington."

    Extremely comfortable and welcoming, everything has been thought of and catered for by the owner. The welcome of wine, fudge and fresh flowers on arrival was a lovely additional touch. There was also fresh milk in the fridge. We had a lovely relaxing time at The Postman's Cottage. It is warm, cozy and has a wonderful comfy bed in lovely stylish surroundings. It is only 10 to 15 minutes walk to Bridlington Promenade with access to the beach and a lovely walk to Fraisthorpe and only the same to the Old Town in the opposite direction. They also welcomed our dogs and we were able to park directly outside the cottage. All in all a fabulous place to stay and highly recommended.

    I'm so pleased that you both were able to enjoy your stay at Postman's Cottage and that you, and the dogs (!) got out and about despite a bit of mixed November weather. Thanks so much, I really appreciate you taking the time to do an online review. Property Owner

    It was beautifully decorated throughout and the garden was secure for our dogs. Beds were comfortable and the cottage was warm and cosy. The owner was incredibly helpful with any queries and was quick to respond. The cottage is positioned between the sea front and the old town making it accessible to both on foot. We loved it!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to do an online review. It's really good to hear that Postman's Cottage was everything you needed it to be for your short break to Bridlington.

  • "We have recently returned from a two week stay at Postman’s Cottage which is tastefully decorated and very well equipped (-there was even a box of toys for the dog!"

    ) Ruth had also left some welcome treats which were much appreciated. The courtyard garden was lovely and also secure for the dog. Whilst you can park in the road outside the property, the street is very narrow which may be a bit tight for a larger car and sometimes it can get busy but there is a car park literally around the corner which costs £3.30 for 24 hours-we found that we used this on a couple of occasions. The car park also adjoins a playing field which was useful for exercising the dog in the mornings. The house is literally 5 mins walk from the station (no disturbance from trains) and a large Tesco stores which was very handy. It’s a 10/15 min walk into the town centre/harbour. The Old Ship pub close by has a lovely beer garden which could easily go undiscovered and is dog friendly. Prior to travelling to Bridlington we had downloaded a Treasure Trail treasure hunt from the internet for Bridlington Old Town which was really good fun and we discovered places that we may otherwise have missed -like the Pack Horse pub. Would also recommend a trip to see the puffins at Bempton Cliffs and a trip to Filey which is a dog friendly beach but watch out for the seals! Would definitely recommend a stay at Postman’s Cottage.

    Thank you so much for doing an online review. It's very much appreciated and is full of useful tips for anyone else considering a stay at Postman's Cottage. So pleased you all enjoyed your 2 week holiday in Bridlington and took advantage of the plenty of dog walks in the area. Sounds like lots of exploring for all of you! Thanks again. Property Owner

The property

Perched in the bustling seaside resort of Bridlington in East Riding of Yorkshire, is this lovely two-bedroom Victorian end-terraced house, Postman’s Cottage.

Named after a former owner, William Percival Tye, a postman, who bought it about 100 years ago, on a private loan for just a few shillings a week, and enjoying a prime position along the coast with easy access to the stunning Flamborough Headland Heritage Coast and the Bempton Cliffs, Postman’s Cottage is a wonderful pet-friendly dwelling for couples or a family of four, plus their canine companion, seeking a coastal escape.

Step into the spacious living/dining room, where you can look forward to relaxing in the evenings after a day of adventure in front of your favourite film on the TV.

Completing this space is a handy workspace offering a fixed folding desk and plenty of sockets, should you need to work while in this home-from-home.

Rustle up delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen, featuring a slimline dishwasher, ready to enjoy at the dining table for four or alfresco out on the private patio as your pooch stretches their legs.

When the evening cools, retreat to the sun room where you can continue to enjoy the last of the day’s rays along with your favourite tipple.

Just off the sun room you will find a handy shower/utility room, where you can rinse off sandy toes after day at the beach and freshen up your holiday wardrobe.

Climb the stairs up to the first floor, where you will discover two well-appointed bedrooms, a king-size with TV and a king-size with zip/link, both of which are served by a bathroom, perfect for preparing for the day ahead in style.

Explore your local surroundings, where you will find the welcoming Telegraph Inn just moments away, for when you want to sample the local ales, or if you don’t feel like cooking, why not treat your loved ones to a tasty meal at Supattra Thai or Buddha Bar?

When the chef of the group needs a break, there are the local favourites White's Bakehouse and The Bar With No Name where you can fill up after a day of exploring.

There is also a well-stocked supermarket and convenience store within walking distance for when you need to stock up on essentials.

Pack up your bathing suit, swimming trunks and towels and head straight for the glorious sands of Bridlington South Beach, where you can bathe, tuck-in to fresh fish and chips or paddle the shores.

Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the promenade, where you will find a plethora of eateries available, as well as the town’s picturesque harbour where you can watch the boats come in.

Other attractions you won’t want to miss are the remarkable Bridlington Priory, Bridlington Spa, the John Bull World of Rock and Bridlington Animal Park.

Take the short drive over to Sewerby, where you can visit the grand Georgian house of Sewerby Hall & Gardens housing a zoo and scenic woodland walks.

Continue onto Flamborough, where you will find The Drinking Dinosaur formation, Flamborough Head Golf Club and the beautiful Selwicks Bay.

For the keen twitchers in your party, RSPB Bempton Cliffs is the perfect spot for catching a glimpse of seabirds and puffins, or for simply soaking up the breath-taking views on offer.

All this and more awaits with a stay at Postman’s Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
