  • Peter

    “Excellent accomodation.”

    Situated ideally as a base for visiting Bridlington, Filey, Bempton, Flaborough to name but a few places. Paddock at back with secure gate which was ideal for our dog to stretch her legs.

    Hi Peter. It was lovely to meet you and your wife and I’m really sorry that I didn’t get to see a bit more of you both. Hope you made it back home safely? Thank you so much for your great review and I’m really glad you had a great stay. Just a shame about the British weather eh? Thank you again and hopefully see you again sometime.
