Located at the end of a row, Swift Cottage is a beautiful property situated next to Sewerby Hall, a Grade I listed Georgian country house open to the public. The cottage has a sitting-out area, and there is a large grassed area at Sewerby where you will see many children playing. As well as stunning gardens, there is also a zoo, café and delightful picnic areas, as well as a land train that takes you along the clifftops down to Bridlington. The children will love the ride and it’s a lovely stroll back to the property.

Bridlington is a traditional seaside resort with a busy working harbour and a long sandy beach. Keep the children entertained with sandcastles, rock pooling and donkey rides on the beach, and for the adults, there are plenty of bars and restaurants, as well as the Spa Theatre along the seafront, where international acts play. North of Sewerby are Bempton Cliffs, with nature trails and an educational centre. You can see the puffins, guillemots, kittiwakes and the odd seal lazing on the rocks. The popular resorts of Filey, Flamborough Head, Scarborough and Whitby are along the coast and within easy reach. The vibrant city of York is less than an hour away, as is Hull, the 2017 City of Culture. Beverley and Driffield have excellent market days and there are plenty of stately homes within a short drive. This holiday property is in the perfect location from which to explore the North York Moors, Yorkshire Coast and the Yorkshire Wolds. Beach 150 yards. Shop 700 yards, pub 100 yards and restaurant 300 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.
