Description

Fair View is a lovely spacious bungalow, tucked away in a quiet lane in the small village of Skipsea. Situated between Bridlington and Hornsea, it’s the perfect base for families to visit the east coast of Yorkshire and the Yorkshire Wolds, made famous by the David Hockney paintings.

The bungalow has a lawned area to the front and a large enclosed private patio to the rear. A short stroll and you are in the centre of the village, which has all the amenities you would need with a shop, post office, pub, village hall and green. Skipsea beach is much quieter than the traditional seaside resorts of Bridlington and Scarborough, which are just a short drive away. They both have plenty of cafes, a spa theatre, bars and restaurants. They boast lovely sandy beaches with traditional donkey rides which are ideal for children.

Along the coast at Bempton, there is the RSPB bird sanctuary where you can see puffins and gannets in their natural habitat. This is the UK’s only mainland gannet colony. There are beautiful clifftop walks along the rugged coastline dropping down to little coves and back up onto the open clifftops, with spectacular views out to sea. This area is a hikers dream.

Yorkshire is famous for its stately homes; Sledmere, Sewerby Hall and Burton Agnes Hall are all close by. In just over an hour you can be in the centre of York, a beautiful medieval city famous for its minster and walled city, as well as the smaller historic town of Beverley only 25 minutes’ drive away. Beach 1 mile. Shop and pub 200 yards, restaurant 2 miles.

About the local area

Part of the Yorkshire Heritage Coast, the area around Bridlington and Hornsea is rich in areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Bridlington is renowned for its award winning beaches. Hire a beach chalet and let the children enjoy the fun at Kiddies Corner, or take a trip on the Land Train to Sewerby Hall and Gardens.

An impressive country house with acres of gardens to explore, Sewerby is also home to a small zoo where children are sure to delight in the popular Humboldt Penguins. Wet weather is never a problem, with plenty of amusement arcades along the seafront and Leisureworld, which boasts an indoor fun pool, complete with waves and waterslides.

Fourteen miles south of Bridlington is the little seaside town of Hornsea, housing a pottery museum and Bettison's Folly, a Grade II listed tower, while nearby Hornsea Mere offers sailing and fishing.

North of Bridlington is Flamborough Head, a chalk headland with the oldest lighthouse in Britain, which was built in 1674 but never used. There is also a newer, working lighthouse, where you can climb the 119 stairs and admire the extensive views. This is a Special Area of Conservation and a birdwatcher's paradise, with its regular visitors of gannets and puffins.

Danes Dyke at Flamborough is a massive flat topped bank and ditch that cuts through the headland. Believed to have been built as a defensive structure, it dates back to the iron age and is now a nature reserve, offering the visitor a series of walks and nature trails to explore.
