Welcome to Chalk Cottage in Flamborough
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.
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.
