About Andrew and Marcela Fox

Andy and Marcela Fox. We live in Bridlington, I work as a lecturer in a local college, Marcela is a Veterinary surgeon in the nearby town of Beverley and speaks fluent Czech. Our love of the outdoors skiing and travelling lead us to use the owner’s direct website to book accommodation for our travels. We bought Brightside cottage in 2012 as an investment and completed full refurbishment a year later in July 2013. We hope that the money and time spent will be rewarded by the enjoyment of our like minded guests. Brightside cottage is in an ideal position for the beach,water sports, the spa or as a base for exploring the Yorkshire coast, moors and Wolds which provide excellent walking and cycling opportunities.

Why Andrew and Marcela Fox chose East Riding of Yorkshire

Stunning beaches 2 minutes walk away, fantastic fresh seafood and fish, amazing cliffs and scenery, Britain`s largest mainland seabird colony 15 minutes drive away

What makes this cottage unique

Brightside cottage is an ideal base for relaxing beach holidays or more energetic water sports, cycling walking, or just exploring the beautiful east Yorkshire coast and Wolds Andrew and Marcela will be pleased to give advice on local attractions cycling routes, walks or visits to stately homes

Comfortable and clean

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was very clean and had everything that you would need for a comfortable stay. There is a washing machine, (line in yard or launderette round the corner) and there is also an ironing board/iron and a hairdryer in the twin room. It was very quiet at night. I always take a portable window blackout which I used, as curtains were light. The only slight downside was no Wi-Fi which was missed at night by the children.

The cottage was lovely a good job having been done with the renovations. Tea, coffee, milk provided on arrival so a welcome cuppa ready in minutes. With two shower rooms no arguing about who went first. Clean and comfortable, everything you needed to cater for yourselves. But close to plenty of places to dine out or just have a snack. Shops and rail station close by. A nice touch was Andrew calling to make sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be going again.

Excellent , Quiet location close to town centre that met all our needs.

  • 4 of 5

Everything we needed for a week's break to attend a family wedding. There is always on-street parking available, but not necessarily immediately outside the cottage. Lots of facilities within easy walking distance, including Brid Spa and the beach, cafes, pubs and shops so you need never move the car anyway. Good train services to further afield ( Scarborough, York, Beverley, Hull etc) for the more adventurous|

Clean and convenient. Close to south beach amenities and town centre.

  • 4 of 5

The property was well laid out with open plan downstairs living areas. It was well equipped and clean for our one week stay. The only down side was my elderly parents struggled with the steep stairs and the low settees but other than that they loved their time in Bridlington.

We had such a great time in the lovely cottage. It was just perfect for us all and our dog. The beach was so close and a shop just round the corner. Everything was in easy reach. Thank you very much Andrew and Marcela!

The Spa

The Spa Bridlington has been a vital part of the region's life for over one hundred years. It is a much cherished local landmark that hosts national and international events, enriching Bridlington's cultural life and economy. From 2006 - 2008 East Riding of Yorkshire Council, with the assistance of the European Regional Development Fund and Yorkshire Forward, funded redevelopment and refurbishment of the building to develop its traditional role for the future.

The Royal Hall and Spa Theatre host the very best in drama, music, dancing, comedy, sports and more. Already a key touring venue for top bands (since reopening in May 2008 The Spa has hosted Oasis and Prodigy), the Royal Hall holds concerts with audiences of up to 3800 people.

New and refurbished rooms of different sizes are available for hire for events, conferences, exhibitions, weddings and meetings. Many of the rooms give stunning views onto the beach, promenade and sea and all are being built with state-of-the-art technical and catering facilities.

The Spa Bridlington's sheer size, character and history make it a venue with a difference. The refurbishment of this local landmark has enabled it to attract tourists, audiences and corporate clients at regional, national and international levels. By improving access and internal services and restoring the traditional rooms to their original splendour, The Spa Bridlington will be able to perform to the highest standards for many years to come.
