    “It has been a difficult year for the travel/holiday industry, so taking this into consideration it was no surprise that I had to wait in a long queue every time I tried to contact anyone at Sykes regarding our booked holiday beforehand, even so it meant spending a lot of time listening to music on hold whilst waiting to get through.”


    The ex-hotel was exactly as described with very adequate facilities for the number of guests, however the cleanliness when we arrived did leave a lot to be desired, we were ready and prepared for making up our own beds due to covid 19, however there were sweet wrappers in some of the rooms and a variety of other bits and pieces under the beds. The kitchen was grubby, I wonder whether it was too big a job to clean up between guests when there are in excess of 30 people? It could do with a good clean whilst nobody is renting it to bring it up to standard, especially at this time when everyone is aware of the perils of dirt and germs. The variety of activities available including table tennis, snooker, pool, air hockey, table soccer as well as a hot tub (extra charge) and bar made it ideal for all age groups. Also there was lovely outdoor space for games such as cricket, badminton etc. We did have a few maintenance issues that were dealt with by the owner whilst we were there including a problem with the boiler effecting hot showers for four of the bedrooms. We accept that it is difficult to get boiler engineers in the current climate. One of the outside blocks had issues with water ingress caused we think by guttering issues, I did make the owner aware of this, when I spoke to him he was already aware there had been a problem, had we known beforehand we could have avoided bags on the floor in that area and wet clothes. Fortunately there was good laundry facilities!

The property

This former hotel is in the village of Burton Agnes, set between Bridlington and Driffield and offers lovely accommodation for larger parties.

The Blue Bell strikes all the right notes and is a perfect venue for that special day as the central room with its feature glass atrium roof seats up to 100 guests.

The bedrooms are split across three areas with twelve in the main house, four set around a courtyard and two duplex apartments.

All the bedrooms are en-suite with the majority offering super king-size beds which can be changed to create twin rooms.

The master suite is a spacious indulgence with two bathrooms, whilst there is a family duplex room which can sleep up to fourteen.

There is a large kitchen, perfect for a chef to create mouth-watering meals and there is a pub on-site which really provides all your needs under one stunning roof and the hot tub adds the icing on the cake.

The Blue Bell is a wonderful choice for family gatherings as the central room doubles up as a games room and dining room with standard seating for 40 guests.

There are two sitting rooms, one of which is known as the snug as it has an open fire where you can sit, raise your glasses and toast the occasion.

In the village, Burton Agnes Hall is a magnificent Elizabethan mansion and well worthy of a visit to both the house and gardens.

Walkers and cyclists, history and culture buffs, beach and seascape seekers are all catered for here.

The stunning Yorkshire Coast is a mere 6 miles away offering sandy beaches and towering majestic cliffs full of seabirds and the Yorkshire Wolds is a rolling landscape dotted with pretty villages.

The lovely market town of Beverley is under 20 miles away and offers a wealth of things to do, there are independent boutiques and shops within charming courtyards and cobbled streets.

The Georgian Quarter is architecturally fascinating with many listed buildings including the 15th century North Bar and at the heart of the town is the Gothic cathedral of Beverley Minster.

Beverley Racecourse is set in the stunning surroundings of The Westwood which has beautiful common grounds with good walks and views of the town.

The accommodation is all there ready for you and all you have to do is provide the occasion!

About the location


Bridlington 6 miles; Driffield 6.7 miles.

Burton Agnes is a village 6 miles from Bridlington and is famous for the Elizabethan stately home, Burton Agnes Hall, built between 1598 and 1610. The house has been described as ‘the perfect English house’ and one of the twenty best English houses alongside Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace and Chatsworth House. The house is lived in and has been in the care of the same family for more than four hundred years. The walled gardens and woodland walks are beautiful. Nearby Bridlington has two award-winning beaches of golden sand stretching out on either side of the historic harbour, bustling with activity. Beautifully designed promenades provide everything from fun-fairs to quiet places where you can sit and watch the world go by. Shops, attractions, restaurants and the historic 'Old Town' of Bridlington offer a fascinating contrast to life on the beach, where the latest Dad's Army has been filmed, whilst the Bridlington Spa Theatre on the front provides evening entertainment. A great area for bird and nature lovers, or simply for touring.
