lovely little cottage in a nice friendly area but did have a few problems
the cottage is a clean space in a nice area however there is a few problems that we did experience with the cottage such as the water the hot water doesn?t run for very long without going freezing and this makes it very difficult to bath/shower there is also a bad smell coming from the kitchen area but can be solved with opening the window or something also the stairs the the Attic (the room with two single beds) are quite steep but this was mentioned to us mr atkins was very helpful with these faults tho. On the other hand the cottage is great and very spacious is is near pubs/ restaurants and a coop just round the corner the people in the area are very respectful and kind and the area in general is very clean the bathroom is very big and the beds are comfy and bedding/towels are provided and little soaps so over all 7/10 it is okay and i would recommend!
Booked our first week away without the children and have already rebooked for next year it's a lovely cottage with everything you would want or need in a great location. Nice walks, great scenery, family and pet friendly pubs on the doorstep plus local shops all within a two minute walk yet it's quite and peaceful
Everything about the cottage and the holiday was just excellent, enjoyed every day.
Cosy retreat during Winter; a sweet little cottage.
Myself and my fiance had a wonderful stay at Duck Cottage in Flamborough village and really enjoyed the sweet little 17th Century cottage. Very grateful for the amount of cooking utensils and bits available as we were trying to do a budget holiday and save some money by eating in. This was more or less a success except the oven is a bit of a liability. It doesn?t appear to be particularly effective and cooking time is pretty much time and a half. I guess that's OK if you are aware of it. Also some of the crockery were a bit dirty but hey ho, just washed them up first! No problems with the wifi, which some guests had commented on in the visitors book as being a problem. The Seabirds restaurant we visited on a quiet week night was superb; we didn?t book and had homemade pies which were fantastic. Log fires and a glass of wine- was the perfect easy dining out from our cottage and a 1 minute walk away. We loved spending time in the cottage even though it was a chilly Feb; the heating is super and very easy to work so that was a great convenience. We lit the fire three times with an instant smokeless log from B&Q and enjoyed that very much. The bed is ridiculously comfortable in the master room; I suspected it was a memory foam and indeed it was! Better than my mattress at home, so that was a great luxury i enjoyed as the purpose of my stay was to recover from work stress with lots of sleep. It is a very peaceful cottage and the village was quiet due to the time of year which was perfect. The location of the cottage meant it was very convenient to pop out for supplies (Co Op across street) and to get to the different beaches nearby. We lucked out on weather and on at least half the days of a full week we had glorious sunshine and low winds. Lots of great photos taken and it was so peaceful. The main downside of this holiday was the washing facility; although the bathroom was immaculate and luxurious looking, unfortunately the bath wasn?t great for a quick shower. An inability to get a consistent temperature out of the taps was the problem I suppose and I prefer a shower to a bath. The temperature coming out was either scalding or freezing. I had to shower my fiance as they are less dexterous than I at constantly altering the taps. As a result I think we bathed less on this holiday than we would have liked mainly to avoid the irritation of the process. Still, we both took at least one or two very relaxing baths. I would definitely return to Duck Cottage if I wanted to spend more time in the area and RSPB Bempton would lure me back potentially.
The cottage surpassed our expectations on every level. We found it comfortable, cosy and equipped with everything you might possibly need. My brother and I were most impressed and would consider booking the same cottage at a different time of year.
