  • "We had a lovely stay at Mill Cottage."

    Burton Fleming is a very quiet village and it was a nice base for us to explore East Yorkshire. The children aged 8 and 6 loved the garden and spent lots of time feeding the cows- they can’t wait to come back! The cottage was a little chilly at times and we had to make use of the convector heaters in all rooms. Great facilities but struggled a bit without WiFi as the phone signal is pretty poor in the area. Overall we had a lovely stay.

    The cottage was lovely in a very peaceful setting the only thing we had to do was a temporary repair on the back fence because it was broken and there was a large gap into a field that had cows in it the fence is in need of some repairs

    Dog friendly and secure, large rear garden. Very clean and comfortable with everything you need.10 minute drive to the stunning beach of Hunmansby Gap, with ample, cheap parking. Nice little village with a pub (does'nt open Mondays). Close to Filey, Bridlington , Scarborough and surrounding areas. We would definitely stay there again.

  • "The cottage is very clean and comfortable, but the seating in the sitting room would be a squeeze for six people, it was fine for us with four."

    Our dog enjoyed the garden and it is good to see the cows in the field. We enjoyed our stay!

  • "We had a lovely time at The Old Mill Cottage."

    It's is comfortable with plenty of room for a family and in a lovely quiet location. The garden was great for my 6 year old grandson who loved to go out every morning to look for the 2 cows in the field behind. It was well equipped with everything we needed and well placed for visiting the coast. The beach at Fraisthorpe was a particular hit with my grandson with parking at Auburn Farm for only £3 for the day. It was quite busy when we visited but there was plenty of space and people were keeping to social distancing. It's definitely a cottage we would visit again and recommend to family and friends.

    Cottage was lovely and homely everything you needed was there, all that is missing is WiFi. The garden was great for my dog. The village of Hunmanby is great also with a butcher , bakers and little coop lovey fish and chip shop and a couple of pubs. Did not visit the pub within walking distance of the cottage as was winter hours and did not open till 5pm each day and we were all cosy in the cottage by that time. Would definitely recommend and rebook.

  • "The garden was lovey but not overly suitable for young children with all the different levels/slabs/edging."

    The stairs are very precarious not really suitable for elderly people, after nearly falling down the stairs on the first day we decided to go down the stairs backwards. Other than these we found the house was more than suitable, nicely decorated with everything we needed. The location was brilliant and it was in a lovely quiet village.

    No real shops in the village anymore i.e.. butchers. Local people were very friendly and great with my dog. Had to make a call as there were no lights working on the very steep stairs. This was dealt with the next day. Enjoyed our holiday visiting the area but disappointed in the shabiness of Bridlington.
