  • "What a fantastic place to stay, could not fault the house at all."

    As far as we were concerned nothing had been overlooked. Would definitely consider staying there again.

  • "Fabulous place to gather with family and friends."

    Extremely well equipped, great location and a place we will definitely return to. Only snag and its a very small niggle, the room with a bunk bed double at the bottom with single on top was not ensuite and there were no separate bathrooms or toilets on that floor. The small cupboard in that room maybe more useful as a toilet facility.

    Thank you for the feedback, glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "This is by far the best property we have ever stayed in and totally suited our needs."

    We were a family party of 3 generations celebrating my mums 80th birthday and the property suited everyone's needs perfectly. The location is great, close (but not too close) to town centre, just meters from the beach and the most amazing views from many of the rooms. The upstairs lounge was perfect to watch the sunrise over the sea. The property was spotlessly clean and is decorated to a really high standard with lots of unique touches. It's bigger than it appears from the photos meaning there's lots of space for everyone whether we wanted to be together or times when we wanted a bit of space. The games room is a great addition and well used although obviously cold this time of year. The kitchen is well equipped with high spec appliances and had everything we needed to cook some lovely meals. We ate out at Seacroft next door on the Sunday, beautiful carvery and even better as given 20% discount when we mentioned we were staying at Southdowne. Great friendly support from the owner before and during our stay as I had a few questions, all of which were answered promptly and a lovely welcome card and gift for my mum. I could go on for ever, I hope we get the opportunity to return some day, it really is a stunning unique property.

    Thank you for taking the time to write such a comprehensive and lovely review! We’re glad your mum enjoyed her birthday and we hope to welcome you back soon! Property Owner

  • "A beautiful, well-designed, super-comfortable, well-equipped and very well-maintained spacious house ideal for a large family gathering."

    Sensitive design throughout the property with good aesthetics and quality furniture. Clearly a lot of thought put into all the detail. Caters for range of ages with games room, quieter sitting areas for others and large dining, kitchen areas for when everyone gets together. House has fantastic location with direct sea views and easy stroll to town centre and harbour. Lovely beach walks straight from the door in either direction. House was universally appreciated by whole family.

    Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review, it’s great to hear that we are catering for all the family and you enjoyed your stay! Property Owner

    The location and sea views were beautiful. On site parking was a bonus as was the restaurant next door for Sunday carvery. The children made good use of the games room and garden. Would definitely go again.

  • "Let me start with WOW!"

    The property had everything stated in the description and more. I have never stayed in a holiday home so well equipped. The bedrooms were just right for our 16 strong party, all of whom loved the house. From the 21 month old who had such fun with the well thought out toys, to the children from 6 to 13 who used the games room every day, and made use of the buckets, spades and rounders set on our trip to the beach. The adults had an array of areas to chill out in including the sunny garden, huge social kitchen, and gorgeous living rooms, and the grandparents who loved that everyone else enjoyed themselves. The property is in the best location, with lots of parking for guests, and we all had great sleeps in the very comfortable beds, with so many bathrooms there was no waiting for anyone to get ready. The welcome we had was so lovely, and everyone has said they would love to come back again. I could go on and on with the praise as there are so many positive things to say about the property. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for this lovely review. We’re so happy you enjoyed your stay at Southdowne and look forward to welcoming you back soon! Property Owner

Enjoying expansive sea views and within walking distance to plenty of amenities, Southdowne provides an exceptional base for family and friends looking to come together and enjoy the east coast of Yorkshire.

There are five off-road parking spaces directly outside the property, so you can easily unload your belongings and get yourself set up for the week.

Step into the entrance hall, where you can leave your seaside essentials after a day on the beach, before discovering the ground-floor living quarters.

Head to the kitchen, where you can sit at the dining table and keep the designated chef company whilst they get acquainted amongst the appliances.

Serve up culinary delights in the separate dining room, with enough seating for the entire group, plus there’s sea views from the bay window!

Put your feet up in the lounge, pondering on the holiday agenda whilst the electric fire gently heats the space.

Find the utility for your laundry needs, housing a washing machine and tumble dryer, with a rear door providing access to the enclosed garden; here you can relax upon the furniture whilst your pooch stretches their legs or head into the games room and enjoy a selection of games, including snooker, billiards, darts and table football.

Spend fun times with the family in the large downstairs sitting room or escape to the peace and quiet of the first-floor lounge and enjoy the panoramic views of Bridlington Bay that stretch from Flamborough Head to Hornsea.

The bedrooms at this Bridlington home are set across the upper two floors; the first-floor provides two kings, two doubles and a twin, each with en-suite shower rooms and TVs, along with a bunk room with double and single bed.

Continue to the second-floor to find the master super-king-size with en-suite shower, walk-in wardrobe and TV, along with a king-size with en-suite bathroom.

Southdowne is situated just fifty yards from Bridlington South Beach, so you can easily enjoy beach days and swimming in the sea.
