Description

This building was originally built as a train station, yet it never had the opportunity to fulfil its purpose as the train route was redesigned and bypassed Flamborough. In 2021 the whole building had an extensive renovation and it has been redesigned as beautiful holiday apartments, centrally located so that you can enjoy all of the surrounding amenities. Each apartment is named after a famous train, and The Rocket has some beautiful original features, including the fireplace (for decorative purposes only and not to be lit) and the wooden flooring. Located on the first floor each room is a step down from the hallway. You have an open plan living room with a dining area, perfect for relaxing in an evening. There is a separate well-equipped kitchen, which is compact yet well laid out. The kingsize bedroom has its own en suite shower, there is also a separate bathroom which has both a freestanding bath and a second walk-in shower. So you each have your own shower.
Flamborough is a renowned beauty spot and a twenty five minute stroll from your doorstep brings you to the headland with views down to the little sandy bay where fishermen still mend their nets. Surrounded and protected by a rugged cliff line that provides excellent cliff top walks and breath taking views across to the RSPB Bird Sanctuary at Bempton and onwards to Filey Brigg. Traditional seaside towns such as Bridlington, with miles of sandy beaches, and leisure facilities including a swimming pool and spa pavilion, is just 3 miles away. The seaside resort of Scarborough boasts two beautiful beaches as well as an open air theatre and Alpamare heated outdoor pool and spa. A leisurely stroll along the South Cliff and Esplanade affords panoramic views across to the 12th century castle ruins. Offering excellent shopping, galleries and museums. The historic port of Whitby with its maritime connections is great for a day out, with its iconic abbey ruins. Further inland is the North Yorkshire Moors National Park with many quaint little villages to explore. The market town of Pickering is home to the steam railway where a journey through the Esk valley will not disappoint. Historic houses such as Burton Agnes Norman Manor House, 9 miles away and Sewerby Hall and Gardens just 3 miles away. This is an ideal choice for couples looking to create memories together visiting new beautiful places.

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.
