  • "Chalkstone needs a really, really good clean."

    We found a dirty sock under the settee, the kitchen drawer with bakeware in was filthy so we didn't use any, a shame as we like to cook, on emptying the bin the bottom of it was disgusting, the drawer in the bathroom was very dirty, so we didn't use it for our toiletries, there is mould in the shower and the shower head is black, the damp patch going up the stairs is a bit off-putting. On arrival the kitchen tap was dripping , which soon turned into a stream, we reported this, but was told it wouldn't be fixed until after we left, so we had to put up with the noise of running water, not good for a woman of a certain age !! On leaving ,we found the fridge with an inch full of water underneath the salad drawer. Apart from that the house is in a good location, with private parking, and inside is well equipped and comfortable, a bit of TLC would transform it into a very attractive holiday cottage.

    We are really sorry to hear that your stay at Chalkstone Cottage wasn't to the standard it should have been. We will be getting the cottage deep cleaned and a maintenance company will be redecorating. When you reported the leaking tap we did offer for this to be fixed immediately but you said you would prefer for this to be completed after your stay. We will look into the water at the bottom of the fridge and adjust the temperature accordingly. We thank you for taking the time to leave the feedback and just wanted to reassure you that the cleanliness and maintenance will be addressed and resolved. Property Owner

  • "We were disappointed at the hygiene and lack of what we expected from previous visits to Chalkstone Cottage."

    1: Teapot was dirty inside and outside 2: Kettle contained black mould and required cleaning before use 3: Only 1 x toilet roll left for our use 4: Only 1 x tea towel left for our use 5: Faeces stains in toilet rim 6: Needed to purchase cleaning materials (£13.85)

    We are really sorry to hear that your stay at Chalkstone Cottage wasn't to the standard it should have been. I have spoken with the cleaning company and asked them to give everywhere a deep clean as this is not the standard that it should have been. It was an oversight only leaving 1 toilet roll and 1 tea towel and apologise for this, and we will be reimbursing you for the extra cost of the cleaning materials . We thank you for taking the time to leave the feedback and just wanted to reassure you that the cleanliness of the property is normally to a much higher standard than this. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Chalkstone Cottage and loved the cottage itself and surrounding area."

    It was all just perfect! The cottage has a lot of character, is cosy and sweet and is tastefully decorated. The beds are really, really comfy and the 2 sofas are perfect for lounging on! You can also walk to the high street, where there is an amazing Butcher shop, in about 30 seconds from the front door! The village of Flamborough is delightful and the 2 beaches are beautiful and safe for swimming. There's plenty to explore and do and we have fallen in love with the area. We will definitely be returning to Chalkstone Cottage and are already looking forward to it. Thank you!

  • "We have had a wonderful holiday."

    The cottage is located in a fantastic position in central Flamborough village. Easy access to pubs, butcher, Co-Op, fish and chips, fresh lobster and crab …all within walking distance. The cottage is comfortable, comfy beds and would make a perfect low season break with it’s cosy log burning stove.

  • "Our second visit to the cottage and we’re already planning a return!"

    Lovely cottage in a fantastic village location, everything you need in the village is within walking distance, including the beach. The village has 7 pubs, two fish & chip shops, a butchers and a supermarket! The cottage has everything and more that you need for a relaxing holiday, with comfortable beds & sofas. The little welcome pack was well received after a long journey too. The only niggle was the cleaning we were greeted by a mop and bucket in the hallway and the over powering smell of bleach! The bathroom in places still looked as if it needed a clean. Also would be very useful to be able to use the back gate especially for unloading the car, as the road out the front of the cottage is very narrow.

  • "The cottage is fabulous, modern, just what we like."

    We didn't arrive till the the prescribed time but found the floor to be a bit wet and quite a bit of dusting not done, apart from that everything fine. Beds comfy, some of the towels not so, but didn't matter. Bathroom is beautiful and great shower. The photo of the garden makes it appear larger but as our week was not so sunny didn't sit out much. The bottle of wine much appreciated and the milk. We had a lovely time and would recommend Chalkstone Cottage.

    Flamborough has everything you need for your stay and is well placed for visiting Bridlington’s superb beaches, the RSPB at Bempton Cliffs, walks along the cliff tops. Burton Agnes Hall and gardens are a must, as is their cafe!! All in all, we had an amazing week and the sun shone every day! We will be back ‘

  • "Beautiful cottage in a fab location only thing we could possibly say negatively about the cottage was the lack of an additional toilet but it certainly wouldn't put us off booking again."

    We loved how quiet the cottage location was but also that facilities such as a local shop, chip shop and pubs were less than a minute or two away from the cottage - a unique and definitely a massive plus point. The whole cottage was beautiful and spotlessly clean and the layout was excellent, making a fairly small footprint seem really spacious. We'd definitely recommend this lovely cottage.

  • "The cottage itself is delightful, the main living space was larger than anticipated with ample space for a family of 6."

    The outdoor space is deceiving in the photos, this space is not very big and certainly wouldn’t seat us all, however we have a medium sized dog so this for her was adequate. 3 good sized bedrooms which accommodated our family of 6, bathroom also a good size. Ample towels provided, all of good quality. Kitchen well stocked and access to dishwasher and washing machine. The local area is lovely with beaches all within 1 miles. Local shop, pharmacy, takeaways and pubs all within minimal walking distance. We’re were at the property for new year and attended the Viking festival. This was very popular and came and went overnight which was great. My only gripe with the property is the cleanliness. All plugs in the bathroom were clogged with hair and the shower tray drain was black with dirt. We were grateful for the cleaning equipment, however the Henry needs updating or replacing as it doesn’t vacuum well. The house rules state no animals or shoes upstairs, this is clearly not being adhered to as the stairs carpet is filthy. However i would return to property as it’s an ideal base for the Yorkshire coast, I’d just bring extra cleaning supplies.

    We are really sorry to hear that your stay at Chalkstone Cottage wasn't to the standard it should of been, I have been assured by the cleaning company that they will unblock and clean the plugs in the bathroom and all the carpets will be given a deep clean for future guests. We thank you for taking the time to leave the feedback and just wanted to reassure you that the cleanliness of the property is normally to a much higher standard than this. Property Owner

    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.

    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.

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.

About the location


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.
