  • "Great little bungalow."

    Nicely kept and in a great location between the centre of Bridlington & Sewerby. Easy access to Bridlington, Sewerby Hall & Flamborough Bungalow has 2 nice double bedrooms and is suitable for couples or small family, back courtyard is ideal for a small dog as well. Will bring ours on the next visit as we will return.

  • "Danescroft was spotlessly clean and warm on our arrival."

    We had a visit from the next door neighbour within an hour of our arrival who showed us how to operate the wood burner (though the storage heaters were so effective we didn't need to use it) and told us about dog friendly places to visit and places eat and local takeaways. We did a Sainsbury's online shop which was timed to be delivered a couple of hours after we arrived which was really helpful. There is a Co-op quite close and a large Morrison's within a couple of miles. The kitchen had plenty of cupboard space, and had a washing machine, microwave, fridge freezer and electric oven but we didn't find any chopping boards, only one bread board. We knew there wasn't a cafetiere so we took one. The bungalow is one and a half miles from the beach and harbour and is in a lovely quiet residential area. Check out Richie's Cafe on South Beach, good food and dog friendly. Bridlington is a great place to stay and it's also close to Filey, Flamborough Head and Scarborough so lots of places to visit and things to do.

    But thanks to facebook and local people telling us where we could get diesel that saved our holiday and was able to get out and about.

  • "Danescroft is a perfect base for exploring with the sea front only 5 minutes away by car and Flamborough, Filey, Bempton Cliffs, and many other places within easy reach."

    The owners who live next door were very helpful with information on local places, shops etc which added to our stay. We found the WiFi signal excellent for keeping in touch with family and entertainment in the evenings. The bungalow we felt had limited kitchen equipment & a set of saucepans would probably benefit future guests. However, when asked if there were any available for our use Stevie did provide one. The property could benefit from a blind at the kitchen window to block the sun which was so bright when standing at the sink and another at the bathroom window to afford extra privacy when taking a shower even though the glass is frosted it does face a joint driveway. Having made the above the comments we would hope they are taken as useful and would recommend the property to family and friends. Thank you Val, Stewart & our dog Mitzy

  • "The bungalow was extremely spotless warm cosy and homely."

    Steve and Tracey were very welcoming but also kept their distance to enable us to enjoy our holiday in peace. There was a hamper of goodies ( hot chocolate, muffins and cereals) and milk in the fridge which were all perfect for my hubby as a vegan I enjoyed the bread and specialty jams tea and coffee. There were lots of store cupboard essentials too such as salt pepper vinegar and cooking oils and plenty of toilet roll and washing up liquid so we didn’t have to buy any of these. There were towels and flannels provided too and washing powder if you wanted to use the washing machine. The rooms were all well furnished and extremely clean. The bed in the main bedroom was exceptionally comfortable. There was a small low maintenance garden to the rear which met our needs. We were situated very close to local shops cafes and pubs and the old town. There were plenty of dog walking areas close by too. Steve was extremely knowledgable about the local area and it’s amenities and was able to recommend places of interest. There was also plenty of leaflets in the bungalow along with games books and dvds If wanted. We visited lots of great places and most were dog friendly including pubs cafes shops and sightseeing areas. The best chippy for us was Gabbys based in the lold town we weren’t impressed with the 149 chippy which was closer and has apparently won awards. The best pub was the ship inn which was extremely dog friendly but does get very busy on a Sunday. The biggest surprise for me was the range of venues selling vegan foods I was so impressed but beware if you are vegan or vegetarian as most places cook their chips in beef fat. Goodness knows why!! And this is not advertised. All in all we had a really enjoyable time relaxing and walking with our dog

    The owner lives next door and was exceptionally helpful. The one down point if that is what you call it was its storage heaters so you got the heat in the morning but toward the afternoon it tended to chill down however the log burner was a real asset and if staying here in a summer it would be no problem. We shall certainly considered another visit here.

  • "We were delighted with the cosy bungalow, and its very secure back garden for our dog, sited on a very well kept estate."

    The owner, who lived next door, couldn’t have been kinder or more helpful. We had a phone call on the day of arrival inviting us to arrive early, if we wished, as the bungalow was ready. John was looking out for us and made us feel very welcome, showing us how to use the wood burner and giving us lots of advice concerning facilities in the area and places to visit. We were extremely impressed by the generous welcome hamper and all the added touches, including ‘doggy towels’! There seemed to be plenty of local public buses so I think it would be possible to explore the area without taking the car, if necessary. ( A real bonus if staying in the height of the season.) Thank you.
