  • "Our third visit in under a year, need I say more?"

    Lovely cottage, comfortable, clean and well kitted out for whatever you might choose to do during your stay, great location for walking, dining out and exploring the local area. Love it!

  • "The cottage was beautiful, spotlessly clean it had everything you could need."

    Flamborough is a beautiful part of the Yorkshire coast and the locality if the cottage is perfect for local restaurants and pubs. The only thing I would say is that check out time at 9.30 is the earliest we have ever had when staying in your cottages

  • "This is a lovely cottage in a great location."

    It was spotlessly clean and really comfortable with everything you need for a perfect stay. I would highly recommend Lilly May. My only issue is the 9am check out time but I guess that this is standard due to Covid? It didn't spoil our stay though.

    Thank you for your lovely comments we are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday at the cottage. In regards to the 9am check out I have is changed this now to 9.30am just to give guests a little more time to get ready for departure. Hope to see you again. Kind Regards. Property Owner

  • "The property is a house not a cottage."

    It was very clean and had everything we needed. I didn't like the quilts on the beds as they kept slipping off and were noisy. Not sure if these were used due to COVID. I thought having to be out for 9:00 am was early, it is usually.10:00 am. The house was situated in a brilliant place to be able to walk to the shops/pubs.

    Thank you for your comments, we are pleased you enjoyed your holiday. I have taken a look at the early checkout and have changed it to 9.30 am. The Duvet protector is there to protect guests due to the Government COVID rules put in place. Thank you, kind regards. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage, very well positioned for Flamborough head and Bridlington."

    Nice pub "Seabirds Inn" 5 minutes walk, best to book a table as very popular. Couple of negatives, parking is on the road as the drive is shared - I feel this could of been made clearer, basic things like bin bags\tin opener\back door mat\bath mat\coat hooks were missing. Also when leaving we had to strip the beds and put in laundry bags which I dont think is necessary. Overall we had a nice holiday.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you like our cottage and enjoyed your holiday, we do have parking at the rear of the property and also under the window, as for stripping the beds, we were advised to ask all our guests to do this due to the Covid rules. Thank you, kind regards Property Owner

  • "A clean and comfortable cottage with everything that we needed for a pleasant break."

    The only downside was parking as the driveway is actually shared so you have to park out front which was tight for an Audi A5. Smaller cars will have no problem.

    We lived the house and the location. The owner is very friendly and left us a nice welcome package too.The location is perfect for getting to the coast and there are lots of fabulous walks locally which comes in hand if you have a dog. Danes Dyke is a nature reserve just minutes down the road from the house. Filey with its lovely seafront is only half an hour away. Whitby is only just over an hour's drive away too. Seems to be very dog friendly around East Yorkshire.

The open-plan kitchen and dining area is wonderfully-appointed to the rear of the cottage, with a range of on-hand appliances, boasting a charming oak cashmere unit and rustic worktop.

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.

Note: This property has a good housekeeping bond of £150.
One well-behaved small pet welcome.
