A stunning little property full of character and charm, attached to the owners’ cottage yet still very private. Set in the beautiful countryside just outside the traditional seaside resort of Bridlington, is this quaint little cottage which used to be the blacksmith’s forge. The cottage is delightful and has been restored to a good standard yet keeping lots of original features including the original forge which is now home to the multi-fuel burner. The bellows sit in the corner, reminding you of the cottage’s original purpose to shoe the horses which came from the local farmers or the stately homes that surround the area. The open plan kitchen/lounge leads through to the beautifully presented bedroom with its French doors which lead out to the terrace and shared garden. A perfect getaway for couples, this cottage is a great base to see the coast, the North Yorkshire Moors and the Wolds.
The town of Bridlington is just three miles away with its long sandy beaches and busy working harbour, there’s plenty to keep you entertained. The famous Spa theatre has shows on throughout the year. There are also plenty of restaurants and bars in Bridlington, or why not eat at one of the village pubs nearer to the cottage?
If you enjoy stately homes, there are plenty within a short drive, including Sledmere House, Burton Agnes Hall, Sewerby Hall and Castle Howard. For the walkers amongst you, the Yorkshire Wolds has some of the best walks through the hidden valleys and sleepy little villages. The Wolds have been made famous by David Hockney’s paintings. He was inspired by the beautiful countryside of the Wolds, yet it still remains a very quiet and unspoilt area of Yorkshire.
The cottage is well placed to visit Flamborough Head, Filey, Scarborough and even Whitby, as well as the little villages dotted along the country roads with their duck ponds and stone cottages. The city of York is less than an hour away and it is well worth a visit. The striking minster stands proud in the centre and is one of the largest cathedrals in Europe. Visit the Shambles with its cobbled streets and overhanging timber framed buildings with little alleyways and interesting shops. Shop 1½ mile, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
