  • “We chose this property for it's size, it was very large.”

    Located above a working pub, this suited us. The warning about possible noise really wasn't needed, I imagine the patrons downstairs could heard us! ...

    Located above a working pub, this suited us. The warning about possible noise really wasn't needed, I imagine the patrons downstairs could heard us! The decor could do with a little TLC but is totally understandable under the current situation, loss of revenue not being able to reinvest into the property. Although there was evidence of recent joinery work. I guess it's hard to do work when you have guests. Generally the property was clean however a few Harvest spiders were about. We loved the quirkiness and space of this old flat.

About the location


Hornsea 6 miles; Bridlington 9 miles; Driffield 11 miles; Beverley 15 miles.

The village of Skipsea is situated in the Yorkshire Wolds, in a typically rural setting surrounded by rich, agricultural land, yet Skipsea also sits within one mile of the beach and is close to the cliffs of the North Sea. The village has its own Post Office and general store, a hairdresser’s and a pub. Many of the houses in the village, both old and new, use cobbles from the sea shore in the building. Just outside the village are the remains of Skipsea Castle. The surrounding countryside is excellent for walking and cycling, whilst the nearby seaside towns of Bridlington and Filey boast long sandy beaches and numerous resort attractions. The Deep Submarium at Hull, Sledmere House and Burton Constable Hall are within 20 miles, whilst the shops, cathedral and museum of historic York, the resort town of Scarborough and the North Yorks Moors Steam Railway at Pickering are within an hour’s drive, and Whitby is just a little further, making Skipsea a superb base for a relaxing holiday.
