  • "Myself and my wife and our little dog spent a lovely week here in mid-may."

    The cottage is ideally placed to enjoy the beautiful coastlines of Flamborough head and Bridlington and Filey within 10-15 minutes, and further afield to the lovely resort of Scarborough within 30 to 35 minutes. Rosewood cottage is comfortable and homely and within a lovely quiet neighbourhood. The garden is nicely laid out for summer evening relaxation and fully secure for the dog.

    Thank you for your kind words about Rosewood Cottage. Lovely to have lovely guests. Pleased you enjoyed your stay . Alison Property Owner

  • "The location was lovely and quiet, the house was really clean, warm and had everything that was required for a lovely stay."

    The host, Alison, was so nice and very helpful. This is a gem of a property with quality features and a stunning back garden with plenty of space, totally enclosed which helped keep our dog safe. Plenty to do in the area and stunning views from the cliffs, plenty of walks and an accessible beach at Bridlington.

    Thank you Wendy. Perfect guests. So pleased you enjoyed the stay. Alison Property Owner

  • "Great location for visiting some fantastic places in and around flamborough."

    Aesthetically the house looks of a high finish but unfortunately the interior furnishing badly let this property down. The sofas are aged and uncomfortable and certainly a squeeze for more than three people. The beds are of a similar age sloping and lumpy(they tried and failed to remedy this with a mattress topper) resulting in uncomfortable sleeps for my family. Please leave the holiday cottage in a better condition than you found it. If you don’t, you will receive a curt text message nine days after your stay rating your departure cleanliness!! A score of 3/10 for us The reason for our score? Crisps were found under the sofa… A cushion cover had tomato sauce on it (we would gladly have paid for a new one if given the opportunity) and apparently a bottle of oil had been spilt over the cooker. Had such an event happened (which it didn’t) we would of course mentioned it. The lack of respect for our integrity left us quite shocked and sullied our experience. To sum up; good location, aged furniture and an owner with antagonistic communication.

    Having read the last review, following the 9th July visit, we were disappointed to have had a call from our dedicated housekeeper letting us know the house had been left in an unusual condition to how our other guests have and hopefully will always leave it. “To ensure that at the end of that period the Property is left in the same state of order and cleanliness in which it was found.” as stated in Sykes booking conditions. Also, we never sent a text regarding cleanliness. It's important, especially with the climate as it is, for house rules to be observed. Amongst other issues, the bin hadn't been put out on the collection day, leaving us to have to empty it, bag it up, clean, disinfect the bin and take the full bin of waste to the recycle tip. Luckily, we were arriving on the same day for a week for a maintenance visit and Covid check. We would have been embarrassed for any future guests to have been met with the property’s condition. The sofa is a Laura Ashley Italian Leather sofa which is only 3 years old. The beds were bought at the same time. If we have any future complaints about the mattress, we will take it back to Ikea as it's still under warranty. We work hard to keep the cottage to a good standard so that it gives others the opportunity to enjoy Flamborough and its surrounding area as we do. The full refund of the £125 Good Housekeeping bond was returned back as a gesture of goodwill. Property Owner

  • "1.The cottage was lovely."

    The area was delightful. We loved it. We enjoyed great bird watching and walking. 2. Communications with Sykes: Making the booking and follow-up communication was the main difficulty. Very difficult finding a way of contacting Sykes by phone or e-mail. (The advice to view my account on line was not helpful, as my computer would not recognise it. ) Once I got to speak to someone, it was ok.. 3. Communication with the owner: she could not have been more helpful and positive .Thank you Allison.

  • "Rosewood cottage is a modern house, well appointed in a convenient location."

    It is ideal for a couple or a small family. A lot of thought had been put into COVID precautions- we felt reassured by this. The house is a short walk into the centre of Flamborough and is a good base for exploring the area. The owners were charming and had put a lot of effort into providing information to help us enjoy our stay.

  • "We had a great holiday at Rosewood Cottage."

    We all loved it, it was so comfy and had everything we could want. The garden was just perfect too - we all loved sitting out (and our wee dog loved to chase and bark at the “big” birds sitting in the trees!) We stayed well away from the larger towns and beaches and stayed mostly local. The walks along the cliffs at Flamborough are great and the views are spectacular so we missed out on nothing! Bird watching at Bempton is a must too! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back.

  • "We chose this property because we were familiar with the area."

    We own a holiday caravan not far away but unfortunately our site closes down for 3 months. The cottage was ideal it had everything we needed and would be an ideal place to stay in the summer months with the beautiful back garden and built in barbecue not to mention all the areas of natural beauty close by. Seals can be spotted off Flamborough Head and from May to the end of June you can see Puffins Kittiwakes Guillimots Razorbills and Fulmar. Gannets can also be seen flying just above the waves as they make their way to the higher cliffs to nest. I would also recommend a visit to Bempton RSPB Centre a short drive away.

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.

Please note: The triple bunk bed is not available and has now been replaced with a double bed as of September 2021.

Note: Property is not suitable for under children under the age of 10
