Overview

About the property

Chalk Cottage is situated in the seaside village of Flamborough on the east coast of Yorkshire. A perfect base to see what Yorkshire has to offer. It is an upside-down, semi-detached holiday cottage with the living room and kitchen being on the first floor to take advantage of the fantastic views of the countryside.

Chalk Cottage was built in 2006 by local builders on the site of the former Croft Farm. Chalk reclaimed from the demolished farm buildings was carefully preserved and used in the construction of the cottage and other properties on the development.

The cottage has been a holiday cottage, with it’s present owners since that time, consistently achieving four star status from Visit England assessors on their annual inspections. The many positive comments in the visitors book in the cottage reflect the high level of satisfaction from our many visitors over the years.

Our housekeeper lives locally and takes great pride in ensuring the cottage is maintained to a high standard. To enable change rounds to be of the highest standard new guests will not be able to access the property until 4 p.m on the day of arrival.

The cottage consists of 3 ground floor bedrooms together with the white modern tiled bathroom which has a convenient quality Mira shower and bath. Six people can be comfortably accommodated.

Bedroom 1 : King size double wrought iron bed

Bedroom 2 : Double wrought iron bed

Bedroom 3 : Single (stacker) bed with further

single bed stored underneath which can be easily pulled out to be used as single or to make a double. This rear bedroom has French windows which give access to the patio area.

All the beds have quality mattresses, duck down duvets and pillows together with luxurious sheets and bedding, with pillow and mattress protectors.

The traditional seaside village of Flamborough is a fantastic place for those of you who like the great outdoors, with lots of good walks along the rugged cliff tops with panoramic views of the coastline, and good hearty Yorkshire dishes in one of the pubs in the village.Flamborough is famous for its traditional working lighthouse and the historic Chalk Tower that warned away ships in days of old. Down from the lighthouse, guests can visit the sheltered coves where seals are often spotted. Along the coast, visit the RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton Cliffs, home to over 200,000 seabirds, including kittiwakes, guillemots and puffins. There are specially created cliff-top viewpoints where you can watch the birds in their natural habitat. Just a short stroll from the cottage, visit Danes Dyke nature reserve with it’s stunning array of wildlife.

This area of Yorkshire is also famous for its stately homes, including Burton Agnes Hall, Sledmere, Sewerby Hall and slightly further afield, Castle Howard. The medieval city of York is less than an hour’s drive away with its ancient city walls and the famous York Minster. There is also lots of shopping with many designer boutique shops amongst the narrow cobbled streets. The nearest town is Bridlington, just 4 miles away, where there is plenty to do for all the family. Take the children along the coast on the famous Yorkshire Belle pleasure boat or visit the famous spa where spectacular shows are hosted every evening. Beach ½ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

The area also has a wealth of historic houses including Sewerby Hall and Burton Agnes Hall, which are close to the village and ideal for a family day out.

Flamborough is an ideal base for a memorable holiday.

Golfers are spoilt for choice with three fantastic courses only minutes away

There are several great places to eat nearby, we particularly like The Seabirds and it’s only a few minutes walk away

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just returned from our fourth visit to Chalk Cottage. Feels so homely....always spotless and everything you need is there. This time Chris and Jane were good enough to adjust our start and finish dates to enable us to take in Le Tour de Yorkshire Cycle Race which came past the front door....brilliant spectacle. Another week of lovely walks from the Cottage and photography at Bempton and on Filey Brigg. Chilled out !!Thanks again to Chris and Jane.....and Norma the housekeeper.

Great place to stay in Flamborough

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, well equipped, fair price. We had a few days in Flamborough. Lots to see and do. Good pubs and restaurants in the village. We will be back. Not really a 'cottage'. But the chalk walls are very nice. Lovely private garden area.
