About the property

Detached Cottage in Ulrome, Nr. Hornsea & Bridlington, Yorkshire Coast, England - renovated 2015 - Coastal Location, Walking Distance To The Beach, 10 Mins Drive From Hornsea or Bridlington

The cottage is set in stunning grounds looking out over a duck pond with many friendly inhabitants, so don't be surprised to find the geese, moorhens and of course ducks coming to say hello.

The cottage was superbly renovated in 2015 and has received excellent reviews and many return visitors.

We are located in a small coastal village between Bridington and Hornsea with the beach a short walk away.

About Kristina Marriott

We relocated to the East Coast 7 years ago and with a young family feel very privileged to be living in such a stunning part of the UK, with all of the fantastic beaches and cliff top walks within easy reach.

We have taken great personal pride in converting and renovating this Old Coach House to provide a beautiful cottage in lovely grounds and within walking distance of the beach.

Why Kristina Marriott chose East Riding of Yorkshire

There is a huge history with the property having been built in 1864 by the Architect William Kerby for the Vicar Gregory Bateman.

What makes this cottage unique

Gorgeous grounds within walking distance to the beach but easily accessible for Hornsea, Bridlington and Bempton Cliffs

Tranquility m

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after a long journey and were impressed with the cottage. We were treated to two cakes and a lovely clean, fresh and beautifully appointed accommodation. We spent the week exploring the area, Filey, Whitby, Scarborough and Bridlington. Also the RSPB area of Bempton Cliffs to see the gannets, razorbills and puffins. We will be back, as there are still areas to explore!! A wonderful cottage to return to!! Thank you Roger and Kristina.

Awesome homely modern cottage

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we entered we knew we were staying somewhere special. The cleanliness of the cottage puts hotels to shame, this place was spotless, we're quite picky when it comes to cleanliness so noticed right away. It was beautifully and thoughtfuly decorated and lovely and warm. It was very well equipped with everything we needed and more, we especially liked the usb charge points by the plugs in the kitchen!

The king size bed was beyond comfy and the duvet cover lovely and warm. Everything was thought about to provide a luxury stay, even the towels were fabulous!

Roger came to greet us the following afternoon and was really friendly and helpful before and during our stay. He recommended restaurants and cafés before our stay which were spot on and much appreciated. Amazing hosts who even left a yummy birthday cake as we were celebrating my husband's birthday.

The cottage is in a beautiful location, with the duck pond at the end of the garden, it's also a short walk to the beach, all locals were friendly and the beach was interesting as part of it is being eroded. It's a short drive to Hornsea which we found to be a pretty and friendly town and took up Roger 's recommdation of eating at Cafe chocolat which was lovely.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend the old coach house

Delightful property and owners.

  • 5 of 5

Very high quality renovation. Inside is light and airy and with the garden surroundings and outside seating it makes for a very pleasant "home". The owners are helpful but not at all intrusive, very good base for visiting places such as Scarborough & Whitby which both have excellent Park & Ride facilities and for many other places of interest such as Spurn Point & Flamborough Head and the city of York. Facilities in the cottage are good and we very much enjoyed our stay.

High spec renovated cottage in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

This is a newly renovated property, finished to a very high specification. It is very comfortable and is situated within the grounds of the old vicarage complete with duck pond, the inhabitants of which would waddle up to the cottage to say hello! The owner was very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. For anyone visiting this part of Yorkshire, this property would be an excellent choice.

Lovely Cottage in beautiful grounds

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 3 and stayed over the August Bank Holiday weekend and the cottage was in a perfect location to travel the local coastline and seaside towns. The cottage was newly refurbished and imaculate it sits in beautiful grounds. The family have done a great job on this and we were made to feel very welcome on arrival (the cakes were a lovely touch - thank you). We loved our stay here and will definitely be back again.

Beaches - The beaches all along the Yorkshire Coast are simply stunning with all varieties on offer with blue flag sandy beaches to rock pools and special coves. You can walk from the Cottage to Ulrome Beach and so benefit from leaving the car behind.


Hull has a multitude of activities to offer and is only 40 mins drive away so ideal if you coming to the UK from Europe on the overnight ferry crossings.

We can also be reached by flight into Leeds Bradford airport which is approx 2 hours drive away.


Bempton RSPB Reserve - The best place in England to see, hear and smell seabirds! Each year, 250,000 of them flock to the cliffs between Bempton and Flamborough to find a mate and raise their young.

Only 25mins drive away to spend the day with Puffins, Gannets and Kittiwakes.

Hornsea - with Hornsea Mere where you can hire a rowing boat and enjoy Yorkshire's largest lake, do a bit of shopping at Hornsea Freeport or enjoy the charm of the local cafes and restaurants in this traditional seaside town.
