    Situated in a quiet spot and having a parking space was great. Park around the corner was really handy for a quick walk with the dog though there are amazing walks from the doorstep. The property was in good repair, clean and comfortable with everything needed for a home from home stay. Chocolates, a bottle of wine and doggy treats was a kind touch. The garden is really secure and benefits from a good amount of sun most of the day. Definitely a place I’ll keep in my ‘go back’ to list.

  • "Cottage and location were perfect."

    Cottage was clean and comfy with extras that we don't usually find eg. A TV in both bedrooms, wonderful, a fan, a a slow cooker a grill, a non slip bathmat . The property is listed as having 'uninterrupted views of the countryside' from the bedroom. This is not true, the view is of houses. My husband, who is disabled, took his telescope so that he could look for wildlife, he was very disappointed. Otherwise, really good and do want to re visit.

We would highly recommend this cottage and Flamborough as a place to stay in general. Being close to Bridlington and Filey gave us more options to venture out too if we wanted.

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.
