“We spent an excellent week's holiday in Graham & Dot's beautifully appointed bungalow at Flamborough Head, which was an ideal base for cliff walks and visiting places of interest both north and south, especially Robin Hood's Bay and Whitby. Also special to the area is the RSPB sanctuary at Bempton, only minutes away with its wonderful and varied bird life, where one could spend hours just observing all the activity. This is a lovely area which has much to offer for the tourist and which my husband and I can thoroughly recommend.”

“Whilst originally being unsure about going to a location that we traditionally saw as a day outing from our first home,and having constraints that only afforded us short breaks of a few days, due to the flexibility of the owners my husband David and myself have had a wonderful experience where we saw different aspects of the area than we would have experienced in a day. The property which is in a quiet and secluded location, which suited our preferences, is clean and well furnished and finished to a high standard as well as being extremely comfortable. It definitely equated well with our own home away from home in Spain, which is what we offer.”
“Although a holiday home, the bungalow was very comfortable, very well equipped, a high standard of fittings and furniture, and we felt very at home. and comfortable. We have not been to this part of Yorkshire before and there is so much to see and do we wish we had stayed longer. The RSPB site at Bempton Cliffs was amazing, wonderful clifftop walks, plus nearby interesting towns. The weather was not that good but plenty to do inside and outside. We were left feeling we would love to return.”
Where is it?
Flamborough village consists of about 150 houses and benefits from the usual amenities which include newsagent, post office, supermarket, butchers, chemist, 2 fish and chip shops, 5 pubs and a couple of small hotels. The large seaside resort of Bridlington is just a 10 minute drive away whilst Scarborough, Whitby, Filey, Hull and York are all less than an hours drive. A car is not essential as a regular bus service operates from Flamborough to Bridlington from where most places of interest can be visited either by bus or train. The peninsula of Flamborough extends into the North Sea for about 6 miles and the spectacular 400 foot cliffs to the north of the village are home to one of Englands largest seabird colonies, which is an RSPB reserve. There are 2 golf courses within 5 minutes drive with another 15 minutes away. Flamborough and its surroundings is a peaceful place and has much to offer and would be of interest to the historian, rambler, geologist, archaeologist, ornathologist and of course the holiday maker.
