Self-catering holiday accommodation in Flamborough
Holiday in luxury in the coastal town of Flamborough in the Yorkshire Wolds, home to the largest mainland bird colony in the UK, Bempton Cliffs. Flamborough is a birdwatcher’s paradise and one of the main joys of visiting here are the opportunities to glimpse lesser spotted species of bird; you can also see the bird reserve from the sea if you take a boat trip around the coast. Over 250,000 seabirds make Bempton the largest colony of its kind in the UK. Half a dozen viewpoints look over the cliffs and a great visitor centre which has a museum, information centre, a café, a gift shop and WCs, make it worth the visit.
Flamborough is also known for its two old lighthouses and sandy beaches called North and South Landing. Hire a kayak or indulge in some water sports activities. Why not explore some sea caves or take your family rock pooling? For shopping and entertainment, travel north to the picturesque seaside town of Scarborough, one of the best and most popular resorts along the Yorkshire coast. It’s the best place for a stroll along a traditional promenade, indulging in an ice cream and some tasty cod and chips. Trekkers will enjoy the coast path that runs through the whole region for splendid North Sea views. Also near Flamborough is the elegant seaside town of Filey which is known for a wide swathe of dog-friendly beach and you'll find lots of things to see and do in popular Scarborough.
