Description

Puffin Cottage is the perfect name for this terraced property which is situated close to the internationally renowned RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton Cliffs, where thousands of puffins adorn the chalk cliffs accompanied by many other seabirds such as guillemots, kittiwakes and fulmars. The cottage is full of nooks and crannies, and just what you would expect of a crooked old cottage built in the 1800s, and is full of character and charm. The garden is delightful with a lovely seating area, lawn and rockery, but most importantly its enclosed making it ideal for children and pets.

The cottage is right on the border of Bempton and Buckton, and the village of Buckton has a small playground, village shop and a local pub. The resorts of Flamborough Head, Filey, Scarborough and Bridlington are all just a short drive away and you will have a wonderful time exploring these seaside resorts. For those who love the great outdoors, the cycling and walking in the area is some of the best you will find. The rugged coastline has spectacular walks along the clifftops.

The city of York is just an hour’s drive away or easily accessible by train. Don’t miss this beautiful city during your holiday as it’s always voted as one of the top 10 cities to visit in the UK. There is so much to see and do in York for all age groups with lots of museums and theatres as well as street entertainers, independent shops and cafés. Beach 4 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

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.
