  • "We had a great stay at Hilda's Retreat."

    The house is spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. We felt at home immediately with the nice homely touches and generous welcome pack. We had no issues parking and the place is very conveniently located for walking to the prom, town centre or old town. The owner was also very responsive and easy to communicate with. We hope to return!

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and hope it was a good start to the new year. All the best for 2024 and I would love to accommodate you again in the future. Best wishes Catherine Property Owner

  • "Our stay was very comfortable."

    The property is very convenient for the Rail Station and a large Tesco which was very helpful for us who were using public transport. The property was immaculately presented and Catherine had thought of everything that might be needed. The welcome "goodies" made our arrival a wonderful start to a good holiday in fascinating Bridlington - our first but probably not our last.

    I am really pleased you had a good stay and enjoyed both the house and Bridlington. Thank you for your kind comments. Best wishes and I hope to see you both again, Catherine Property Owner

  • "Hilda's Retreat is a superbly well equipped holiday accommodation."

    Catherine keeps is exceptionally clean with all the facilities well located and a welcome information pack that explains everything. We were 2 adults and three grandchildren aged 17, 12 and 8. The place was within a very easy 5-minute walk of the town centre, beaches and harbour. Of especial value is the parking permit that enables the car to be parked very close to the premises and left there throughout our stay.

    Thank you for your comments Stephen and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in Bridlington and that the house suited your needs. Kind regards Catherine Property Owner

  • "What a lovely house!"

    Clean, fluffy towels and plenty of them. Beds comfy and crisp bedlinen. Everything that you could need in the kitchen, enough of every plate, cup, bowl and cutlery to make the dishwasher worthwhile. The house was clean and smelt fresh. Recycling instructions were idiot proof. Access to Netflix and great wifi made the teenagers happy! Perfectly described on the website.

    Thank you very much for your kind comments. I do like to have happy guests. Best wishes, Catherine Property Owner

  • "We've had a really enjoyable holiday at Hilda's Retreat and would have no hesitation booking again."

    The house is clean, comfortable and generously furnished with plenty of storage. Beds and sofas are large and comfy. Particularly impressed with how well stocked the cottage was. Plenty of everything in the kitchen and well-stocked for a young family (decent travel-cot, changing mat, loads of plastic cups and bowls). Great location - just a few minutes walk from South Beach and the harbour. Train station is just at the top of the road.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. I do like to hear that people enjoyed their stay and that you and your family had a good holiday. Take care, Catherine Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Hilda’s Retreat."

    The location is a short walk to the harbour and the south side one way and the other way takes you to the large Tesco. The boys loved the three story property and had no problems running up and down all the stairs to bring things down for us that we needed to save our legs! Parking is with a permit and we couldn’t always park outside the property but always got a space in the allowable area. The dining table allowed the family to gather together for meals and seated us all (unlike some properties we have stayed in who sleep 6, but the table is only for 4 with two extra chairs put at both ends!) We did a mixture of eating out and cooking and the kitchen is well equipped. The welcome pack is a lovely addition although I’m sure the boys snaffled some of the contents before I got the see all that was in it! The owner was always easy to contact by text when I had some queries. Would stay here again and would recommend to friends and family!

    The accommodation was first class meeting all our needs. The house is very spacious, well decorated and very clean. The lounge has 2 large settees which are extremely comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with ample utensils and crockery. There was a very generous welcome pack which was much appreciated. The bed in the main bedroom was so comfortable, some of the best nights sleep we have had in a long time. Shower facilties are ideal. The loction was perfect for us, 5 minutes walk to the harbour or Spa and Tesco supermarket just across the road at the end of the street about 10 minutes walk. Catherine, the owner, organised the parking permits which worked very well for us. We will definitely return very soon

The property

Idyllically positioned in the heart of the popular seaside resort of Bridlington, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, rests this delightful three bedroom holiday home, Hilda’s Retreat.

Set across three levels and enjoying close proximity to a host of amenities and attractions, including the glorious sands of two award-winning beaches, Hilda’s Retreat is an excellent base for a retreat to Yorkshire.

Park up on the roadside and make your way inside this delightful mid-terrace holiday home, dusting off your sandy toes as you step over the threshold to begin your staycation.

Following a day of adventure, you will be pleased to find a welcome pack that has kindly been provided by the owner.

Follow the corridor through to the open-plan living/dining room, where you can kick back and relax whilst watching your favourite Netflix show on the TV.

When stomachs start to rumble, utilize the fantastic range of amenities provided in the kitchen to rustle up a hearty meal and gather your loved ones at the dining table to indulge.

Carry the conversation outdoors and soak in the fresh sea air as it breezes through the enclosed space with your favourite tipple in hand.

When sleep calls, retreat indoors and head upstairs to discover three well-presented bedrooms, with a king-size and a twin situated on the first floor and a further king-size on the second floor.

Servicing the property is a stylish shower room, where guests can kick-start their day with a refreshing rinse.

With a wealth of pubs, cafes and restaurants resting on your doorstep, you'll not be short for choice on dining out options, whilst a number of local supermarkets are handy for those who would prefer to dine from the comfort of your holiday home.

Take advantage of your coastal location and pack up your bucket and spade and head to the Blue Flag award-winning sands of Bridlington South Beach, set just a stone's throw away from your holiday home, where you can paddle the shores, lounge with a good book, or feel the sand between your toes with a stroll south towards Fraisthorpe Beach.

Bridlington Harbour rests a moments walk away, where you can indulge in the typical seaside tradition of fresh fish and chips as you watch the waves crash on the shores.

From here, take to the waters aboard The Yorkshire Belle and discover the remarkable chalk cliffs that adorn the coastline, or cast your line in search of fish from the Yorkshire Rose.

Make a splash at East Riding Leisure Bridlington, where you can soak in the spectacular sea views from the comfort of the swimming pool, work up a sweat at the gym, or try your hand at something new on the climbing wall.

If you time it right, catch a live performance or an exhibition at Bridlington Spa, or keep the little ones entertained with a game of bowling, bingo or a box office hit at The Forum.

The land trains that run along the promenade makes exploring Bridlington an easy task, with stops made at the Bondville Model Village and Sewerby Hall and Gardens en route, whilst Bridlingtons main train station puts the delights of Yorkshire at your fingertips.

Those with a sweet tooth will be eager to tour the working confectionary factory of John Bull Rock Factory, whilst avid historians may prefer to tour the Elizabethan stately home of Burton Agnes Hall and Gardens, set a short distance away from the town.

Lace up your walking boots and embark on a scenic hike along the Flamborough Headland Heritage Coast, offering views of the RSPB Bempton Cliffs and New Flamborough Lighthouse en route.

Spend the afternoon visiting Filey, where you can take a step back in time with a tour of Filey Museum or test your swing at Filey Golf Club, or carry on to the popular resort of Scarborough and explore the ancient history of Scarborough Castle.

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.
