Built in 1696, this terraced holiday home is oozing with character and charm, and has been tastefully decorated and furnished, using a contemporary mix of new, vintage and up-cycled furniture and fittings. Nell’s Cottage is situated in the popular old town of Bridlington, which was made famous by the film ‘Dad’s Army’.
The property used to be a sweet shop and boasts a delightful private terraced area to the rear of the property, which is great for socialising and an alfresco supper in the summer.
The property is set back from the old town of Bridlington which used to be two separate towns, but over the years it has now joined to make one. Most visitors go straight to the seafront, but there is also a beautiful cosmopolitan part of the old town.
The main street has lots of little independent shops and galleries, as well as good restaurants and local pubs. At the far end of the main street you reach the Priory Church, one of Bridlington’s hidden gems. For over 900 years, this church has been serving the people of Bridlington and is renowned for its excellent choir and musical events that are held throughout the year. The Bayle Museum dates back to the 12th-century and is situated just in front of the Priory Church. This used to be the gatehouse to the Priory and is now a fantastic museum.
The seaside resort of Bridlington is a bustling fishing harbour, with lots to see and do. It has been popular over the years with families, due to its large sandy beaches and the traditional seaside donkeys, sticks of rock and sandcastles. On an evening why not enjoy a night at the popular Bridlington Spa, host to lots of international acts.
From the seafront you can catch the land train to Sewerby Hall, just a short ride along the clifftops which is always a favourite with children. Sewerby Hall is just one of many stately homes in the area. There’s also Burton Agnes Hall, Sledmere and of course Castle Howard to name a few.
In less than an hour you can be in Hull or York. Hull being voted the city of culture 2017 and York has been voted one of the UK’s best tourist destinations, steeped in history and definitely worth a visit. North of Bridlington there’s Flamborough Head and Bempton Cliffs, where you’ll find the RSPB sanctuary, where thousands of migrating seabirds are seen here every year and is definitely a bird watchers paradise. Watch the puffins on the cliff sides or spot the seals and dolphins. The Way of the Roses cycle track starts in Morecambe and finishes in Bridlington and is a 170-mile coast to coast cycle route, perfect for the experience, and those wishing to enjoy a leisurely bike ride with family. Beach 1½ miles. Shop 100 yards, pub 50 yards and restaurant 150 yards.

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.
