This detached property is a conversion from an old lifeboat house, set in Hornsea and sleeps six people in three bedrooms.

The Old Life Boat House is a conversion of a lifeboat house in the seaside town of Hornsea, near Bridlington. This detached, upside down cottage sleeps six people in three ground floor bedrooms, consisting of one double with en-suite shower room and two twins, as well as a ground floor bathroom. The cottage also has a first floor open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with electric fire.

Outside is off road parking for two cars and a small, enclosed rear patio with furniture and barbecue. The Old Life Boat House is a wonderful place to stay and explore Hornsea Mere, stately homes and further afield the North York Moors National Park.


Lovely place
This is a hidden Gem. How lovely an relaxing this place is.An how well this place is laid out. An so near to everything you need. An the welcome gifts we a very nice added touch. An plenty of place to eat in as well. I would highly reccomend this house to plenty of people

Unique, lovely pet friendly and well equipped
Beautiful accommodation - especially considering it is dog friendly. Lots of nice extras like boardgames, vinyl, CD's ? extra blankets and towels available. Well serviced kitchen facilities, and the wine and chocolates on arrival were a lovely touch. Access to the car parking space at the rear of the property is very very tight - we managed to find on road parking, but imagine this may be a problem in summer. This could be a deal breaker for some guests, so should be clearly mentioned on the accommodation description. Appreciated the phone call from the owner a few days before my stay to explain where the key was kept. Check out is at 10am - would have appreciated this being slightly later, but appreciate given the size, the accommodation may take some cleaning sometimes between guests. I assumed the accommodation was on the beach front (being a life boat house and showing photos of the beach on the listing). My error I guess as it does state the beach is 2 minutes away. It is very close to the accommodation, but not quite the views I was expecting as the Old Life Boathouse is in the middle of a housing estate. The mattresses were a little too springy / soft for us, but others may prefer. All the bedrooms are a good size. Well located for all amenities, and we had a lovely weekend as a group of friends.

What a brilliant place i highley recomend it it was very clean and tidy and lovely personal touches !

Lovely place to stay
We have just returned from a one week stay at the Old Lifeboat House. We had a lovely week. The house is very comfortable, clean and well equipped and we loved the topsy turvy living accommodation. There were flowers, chocolates and wine for us when we arrived, which is a really nice touch. The outside patio was a really good sun trap and there was use of a bbq too. Would really recommend it for families as it is child and pet friendly.

The Old Lifeboat House is calming and relaxing and spotlessly clean. The house is quiet and tranquil, and the owners have gone that extra mile to make the stay wonderful, everything you need is there. It's a 'Tardis', looks small from the outside but once you get inside it is huge. Brilliant place to stay!
