With the UK having been in lockdown for the past three months, Yesterday’s announcement from Boris Johnson came as a relief to many. From 4th July, hotels, B&Bs, campsites and holiday cottages across the UK are permitted to reopen. Those who were due to go away whilst the restrictions were in place will be eager to rebook and those who weren’t, will no doubt be seeking a change of scenery.
We may be biased, but we think the Yorkshire Coast is one of the finest parts of the United Kingdom and has much to offer those seeking a relaxing staycation. Boasting stunning destinations such as Whitby, Filey, Sandsend and Bridlington and a whole host of award-winning visitor attractions, it has something to offer everyone.
With vast numbers of people expected to book their next UK staycation in the coming weeks, we thought we’d make things a little easier for you by introducing you to some stunning coastal self-catering properties. This week, we’ve scoured the web for Yorkshire Coast holiday cottages offering spectacular sea views. We’ve made sure that each of them has some availability over the summer but we recommend getting in quick should you see something you fancy!
5 Yorkshire Coast Holiday Cottages with Sea Views
Beach House, Whitby
By far one of our favourite places in Yorkshire, if not the UK, Whitby is a great choice for people of all ages. With miles of sandy beaches, a bustling harbour, countless visitor attractions, an eclectic array of independent shops and, of course, its famous abbey – there is much to see and do!
As it is situated near to the abbey steps so, this Yorkshire Coast holiday cottage offers wonderful sea views. It isn’t just the location which is idyllic either. The interior of this Yorkshire coast holiday cottage is delightfully charming. The open plan lounge, kitchen and diner is beautifully decorated and offers ample space for young families.
It’s just a 2-minute walk from the beach and has everything you could possibly need for that perfect family getaway. BOOK HERE.
The picture-perfect fishing village of Staithes is certainly one of the most beautiful holiday destinations in Yorkshire. If you like exploring then this is absolutely the place for you. Many a day can be filled seeking views from clifftop paths, hunting fossils and investigating rock pools.
Hillsover is a luxury Yorkshire Coast holiday cottage close to Staithes beach and it is absolutely immaculate inside. It isn’t the largest of properties but can comfortably sleep 4 people and it really is decorated to a very high standard. Spend a day exploring and then return to Hillsover for a spot of al fresco dining on the spacious decking area, which offers some stunning sea views. It has two double bedrooms but we think this place would be ideal for a romantic break. BOOK HERE.
