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.
