  • "We enjoyed our stay at Carr Cottage, we found that everyone was really friendly, chatty and quick to greet us and we felt very welcome staying there."

    The cottage itself was very spacious (the photos online do not to it justice) and the large garden space was very much loved by our dog. The cottage was well equipped for our stay and was very clean and tidy.

  • "Carr Cottage occupies a beautiful, tranquil location and is excellent value for money."

    We enjoyed a two week holiday with four kids and were not short of activities in the area. The cottage has everything you need and is comfortable and clean. If you require an ultra modern property then this will not be for you. If you enjoy a unique, idiosyncratic and historical property then I highly recommend Carr Cottage.

  • "Carr cottage is in need of complete refurbishment."

    Carpets, beds and general decor not up to standard for a holiday cottage.

  • "Some negatives: I was disappointed by the fact that I could not cancel once booked."

    I don't understand why there is no cooling off period. (When I re-read the small print and discovered no wifi I tried to cancel within 10 minutes. If I had it was clear I would have lost my money altogether.) The interior decor etc is a bit below the standards you would normally expect. However, the positives of the cottage hugely outweighed any negatives. We adored our holiday. The setting is idyllic. The people on site were warm and very friendly. The key to our happy holiday was to adapt ourselves to fit in with the property - not the other way round. We really had a fabulous time.

    ! Perfect location for exploring local coastline which is very dog friendly. Fantastic to visit North Landing and Bempton to see birds. Cottage is a perfect sanctuary for peace and quiet as set in lovely location with pretty views and friendly neighbours.

  • "Although accommodation was a little dated it met our needs."

    The people who met us were friendly and were helpful. Would definitely use again as it is a great base for exploring the east coast. At night it was a cozy place to end the day.

    The weather was superb with sunshine every day! Great location for visiting the nearby seaside towns and fabulous miles of dog friendly beaches! The cottage is quirky and interesting in a beautiful peaceful setting with very friendly staff, neighbours and villagers who all make you feel very welçome. We hope to return again soon!

  • "We’ve stayed at Carr Cottage many times and it’s always just been a quaint little haven of peace and quiet."

    It’s close enough to several seaside towns which all have a different appeal but still far enough away to make you believe you’re in the middle of nowhere!

  • "This is our second visit to this lovely cottage, having thoroughly enjoyed the situation and peaceful setting, well away from the road."

    It is set within extensive grounds, including a beautiful garden available for visitors and areas for families to sit in the sunshine while the children play. As per the description, this Grade II cottage IS rare and quirky, absolutely NOT modern, but totally enchanting. If you are looking for a state of the art upgraded place to stay with all mod cons... this isnt it. This is not an ultra-modern property, and that really IS part of its charm. It doesn't have a dishwasher, as noted in the cottage description - but it's easy living and very relaxing. It is absolutely a family letting, for those with children, and although it would be possible to provide for more than two adults, the single beds really are for children. The description is clear regarding the lack of WiFi - in that there isn't any, or at least barely any signal - so be prepared for a holiday without the trappings of technology [wonderful!]. It also clearly describes the bathrooms as having hand-showers [no overhead showers] over the bath and that is also true. Sloping ceilings make it difficult for tall adults to shower, so bathing would be preferable. The location makes this an ideal place for visiting other local attractions as well as being approximately 15 minutes from Bridlington by car. Nearby Rudston and its unique monolith is the next village, and Sledmere isn't far. Apparently, somehow a full complement of six 6'5" National basketball team booked to stay this year, each one arriving in their own car [it clearly states that there is room for two cars] - and of course the facilities were totally inappropriate for a letting of this kind. The property is of course clean - in the countryside there is good reason for the the odd spider - and they are also resident.

  • "Great, quirky cottage set in fantastic surroundings."

    Although the cottage was clean, and comfy, it does need a bit of attention inside. It is an old place, so old furniture does go, but it is in need of a freshen up. one of the twin rooms needs the beds renewing. you sat on one side and it just rocked the bed. I'm surprised my daughter didn't fall out. but other than that it is conveniently located for brid, flamborough, Bempton and all surrounding areas.

  • "Fantastic location in the grounds of a stately home with gardens available to picnic in."

    Helpful staff live nearby and dealt quickly with our only problem, which was getting the DVD player to work! Bridlington south beach is 15 minutes away (Google a back route which avoids the town traffic ). Robin Hoods Bay, Whitby and Scarborough are all an easy distance. Highly recommended for a family holiday.

The property

Bridlington 3 miles. A wonderful character property, originally the 18th century east wing of a country manor house in the sleepy hamlet of Boynton, 3 miles from the seaside town of Bridlington.

This beautiful Grade II listed Bridlingon cottage, adjoining the owner's property, Boynton Hall, has been carefully renovated, retaining some original features such as cast iron fireplaces and magnificent arched windows.

With a quirky layout to the building, passages and small steps lead to rooms furnished and decorated in keeping with this period property, which looks out over the beautiful lawns and gardens of the main house.

Across the courtyard from this elegant Bridlington cottage is use of a large, shared walled garden with summer pavilion, a perfect spot to sit and relax on a warm summer's evening.

Surrounded by the rolling countryside of the scenic Yorkshire Wolds, this Bridlington cottage is a good base to explore the local area.

Enjoy days on the sandy beaches at nearby Filey and Bridlington, or visit Bempton Cliffs Nature Reserve.

There are numerous historical stately homes close to this Bridlington cottage, including Sledmere House and Burton Agnes Hall.

A charming Bridlington cottage for all the family.

About the location


Filey 10 miles; Scarborough 20 miles.

The seaside resort of Bridlington lies on the east coast of Yorkshire, south of Scarborough and Filey. Two award-winning beaches of golden sand stretch out on either side of the historic harbour, bustling with activity. Beautifully designed promenades provide everything from fun-fairs to quiet places where you can sit and watch the world go by. Shops, attractions, restaurants and the historic 'Old Town' of Bridlington offer a fascinating contrast to life on the beach, where the latest Dad's Army has been filmed, whilst the Bridlington Spa Theatre on the front provides evening entertainment. There is also the East Riding Leisure Centre, with family swimming area and a variety of other indoor activities. Further afield are the picturesque villages and scenery of the Yorkshire Wolds, the neighbouring resorts of Filey, Scarborough and Whitby and the spectacular heritage coastline. There are numerous places to visit in the area, including Bempton's RSPB bird sanctuary, Sewerby Hall, Danes Dyke and Flamborough Head with its cliffs and caves. A great area for bird and nature lovers, or simply for touring.
