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

Cosy and comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5

Booking was very straight forward and price reasonable. Arrival instructions received in good time and good clear communication from owners. The cottage has everything you need as a base and is situated minutes from South Beach. We were looking for miles of beach to run the dogs on and were not disappointed. There is no wifi at the property but plenty of BT hotspots so no need to deprive teenagers! The weather was kind to us and we were able to go on long long walks a couple of times each day. The cottage has a good selection of dvds, books and games if you need it. Was initially a bit unsure if the garden was shared as seem to be other gates and doors opening on to it, but never saw any of them open so it was secure for the dogs when you're getting the sand off! Took daughter onto North Beach, all arcades and fun fair rides not not our thing, but if it's yours, you won't go wrong. Supermarkets and shops all in walking distance too.

Was grateful to the owners for allowing our two big dogs as they had the best time. Really enjoyed our stay and recommend this property.

clean, tidy and convenient

  • 4 of 5

We had a good three day break in this cottage at Bridlington. The owner is very friendly and helpful and makes a point of welcoming all guests. The only slight snag was that the parking was not exactly convenient, the parking pass covered all areas in a controlled zone but we were never able to find a space closer than two streets away which would not have been easy for the elderly or those with young children and should perhaps be made clearer on the information given.

Lovely,cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We needed somewhere fairly central for our stay as my father likes to walk, but unfortunately his enthusiasm isn't always matched by his ability! The location was perfect for us and surprisingly quiet, I really expected more traffic noise (though we were out of season). The cottage is a real home from home, they provide everything you might need (even a tea strainer!). Will happily stay here again if we return to Bridlington.

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.
