Description

Surrounded by farmland, this detached single storey holiday cottage was originally used as the living quarters for those manning the nearby Second World War searchlight. Completely modernised yet retaining its original working range in the living room, it offers a peaceful location with far reaching views. The RSPB have noted over 100 different species of birds on the farmland, and with a pond available for coarse fishing and a footpath leading to the coast, this is an ideal cottage to enjoy many forms of wildlife. Just 4 miles from Bridlington, with Flamborough Head and Bempton RSPB reserve beyond, and with the coastline all accessible, together with days out at Beverley, 16 miles away, or historic York, this also makes a great touring base. Shop, pub and restaurant 2.5 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.
