  • "Absolutely fabulous cottage and location immaculately kept wine and milk left ..."

    Absolutely fabulous cottage and location immaculately kept wine and milk left for us on arrival will definitely return in the future I even tried to book another stay while i was there but not unsurprisingly it was fully booked

  • "Lovely detached cottage in a perfect village location."

    The cottage has everything and more you need for a weeks stay. Would have been nice to open the bathroom window but it was locked and had no key.The bath was amazing! The open plan layout was perfect,and the bi fold doors were a lovely addition during the warm weather,into the enclosed garden,which meant our dog could please herself without us worrying she could get out. Flamborough village has an array of local shops including a butchers and green grocers and pubs,and a decent size co op. A walk down to North Landing takes you past an additional two pubs( both dog friendly) to a bar belonging to the local Haven site that was open to anyone. We found plenty of walks to do from the cottage,including a walk to RSPB Bempton,and another from the village down to Danes Dyke and back along the coast.If back in the area would definitely stay in Chalkstone again.

  • "We were welcomed with wine, chocolates and milk which were a lovely surprise."

    The cottage was clean, modern and comfortable. It's equipped with everything you need. It's in a great location for walks to Thornwick Bay, North and South Landing. Filey, Bridlington, Hornsea and Scarborough all within an hour's drive. There are two fish and chip shops, several pubs, a post office, green grocers, chemist and several other independent shops within a few minutes walk. We had a lovely stay and would happily recommend Chalkstone Cottage.

  • "We had a lovely time and the area is beautiful with lots to explore."

    The cottage was nice but on arrival it was quite clear the kitchen work tops hadn’t been properly cleaned and tea towels left for us were dirty. We went to make a cup of tea and all the mugs in the cupboard were sticky with residue tea/coffee in them. I am not saying the owner knew this we wondered if the people before us had just put them away prior to washing on check out. This obviously made us feel a bit concerned about cleanliness. All in all we had a lovely break and were saddened to cut it short due to the storm. We would come back to flamborough again.

    'I apologise for the cleanliness issues that you had during your stay, i have been assured by the cleaning company that this is one off and will be prevented for future guests. We thankyou for taking the time to leave the feedback and just wanted to reassure you that the cleanlines of the property is normally to a much higher standard than this.' Property Owner

    Easy walking distance of the coast… and Scarborough,Filey, Sewerby and Bridlington a short drive away. A good place to chill

  • "There is damp in the hall way which i have e mailed photos to you with no response it got worse whilst we were there not what you would expect to see."

    Thank you for your feedback - we're sorry to hear that you were affected by damp in the hall at Chalkstone Cottage. We have not received the images that you have sent in, so apologise for the delay in responding. The property has been inspected and the minor damp issue in the hall has been attended to and is no longer a problem. We hope that this would not put you off booking again with us in the future.

  • "This was our third visit to Chalkstone, which never disappoints our expectations."

    The price we paid this year was expensive, but still value for money for this unique location and accommodation. However we have looked at the cost of re-visiting Chalkstone in the summer of 2022 and feel that the prices being quoted can only be described as DAYLIGHT ROBBERY and far from our ability to afford as OAPs, which is a big disappointment to myself and my wife..

  • "Fabulous stylish cottage, well equipped and great location."

    Only downside, took over an hour to get the key safe to open, there was a nasty smell from the cleaning cupboard which would not go away and as we are all getting through Covid-19 could have been cleaner the shower needed a deep clean plug full of hairs and mouldy hadn’t been cleaned for weeks.

  • "Great place, nice location."

    Small things would make the property better. Needs another toilet and could have been a little cleaner than it was, but overall good and I would go back.

  • "The cottage is lovely."

    The huge open plan downstairs is a beautiful, bright room which fully opens onto the little enclosed courtyard, which was ideal as we were lucky enough to have sunshine all week. The yard is secure if you have a dog. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need and a few welcome items were provided, including wine. The only downside for me was the 13.5 tog duvet, far too warm for summer. I would also take some hand towels as only one is provided for the whole family.

  • "Really lovely house and facilities."

    No toilet paper or kitchen roll provided. Not sure that mattress covers had been washed and one needed replacing as it was very worn. Throws on sofas were lovely, but again not sure they had been washed ready for next occupants. Just minor points that did not spoil our stay.

    Also a draining board for the kitchen sink would be helpful with a bowl for the deep ceramic sink. If we had been able to open the side gate it would have made unloading the car easier. Would definitely return.

  • "Chalk stone cottage is a perfect base for exploring this part of the Yorkshire coast."

    Located in the heart of Flamborough meant that we had shopping facilities and places to eat( unfortunately the pubs decided not to provide food due to the impending lockdown towards the end of the holiday). Plus we could get out walking around the coast directly from the house so didn’t need to use the car much. We were extremely lucky with the weather for November which meant we could go walking every day. For us it was a perfect Autumn break.

  • "Cottage is excellently located in the village."

    Within walking distance of all the amenities and surrounding area, which is beautiful! The cottage itself is well supplied, my only comment is I am not a very tall person and could have done with a step ladder to reach some of the cabinets in the kitchen area. Other than that, beautifully modern and decorated. Would highly recommend and we have booked to go back later in the year.

  • "Lovely cottage and stylish decor."

    We only had a few little issues. The shower didn't drain well so taking it in turns to use between the 6 of us took a while as we had to wait a while for the water to drain out the tray between each use (but nothing a little beach can't solve). The bedroom decor was nice but the lovely glass lights hadn't been dusted for a while in any room and so they looked very dirty. The blinds in the rooms also aren't long enough for the window so the light comes through, which could be even more of an annoyance in the summer.

About the location

FLAMBOROUGH

Bridlington 4 miles; Filey 7 miles; Scarborough 18 miles.

The pretty village of Flamborough occupies a superb setting, perched on a picturesque peninsula on the East Coast of Yorkshire, 4 miles from Bridlington. Housing traditional fishermen's cottages and a small selection of welcoming pubs and restaurants, Flamborough also has much to offer the rambler, historian and birdwatcher. There are spectacular cliffs, which form an eight mile stretch of Heritage coastline, and at Flamborough Head, stand two historic lighthouses, one of which is the oldest one in Britain, built in 1674. To the north of the village, the magnificent 400 feet high cliffs are home to one of the largest colonies of nesting sea birds in England. Discover the puffins at Bempton, follow the fascinating natural trails at South Landing and the wooded ravine at Danes Dyke, or explore the smugglers’ caves at North Landing. Enjoy a spot of fishing or a boat trip to explore the sea caves. Flamborough Head is a wonderful place for anyone who enjoys beautiful coastal scenery and bracing sea air.
