Things To Do in Hunmanby Moor

At Beachcomber’s Rest, you’ll have the best of both worlds as it is directly opposite the café and indoor swimming pool and just a few hundred feet from the lakes. The tranquil waters of the lakes are surrounded by footpaths that give way to meadows, excellent for dog walking.

This part of Yorkshire is rich in birdlife, so don’t forget to pack your binoculars to do a bit of twitching during your stay. The Filey Bird Observatory Group is a good starting point as it has several sites in the area where you can see unusual birds such as the Great Spotted Woodpecker and Pied Flycatchers. The highlight has to be the RSPB Bempton Cliffs, just nine miles from the apartment. It is home to one of the UK’s top wildlife spectacles. More than half a million seabirds gather here to raise their chicks on towering chalk cliffs that rise over the sea between March and October. It never fails to be a fascinating setting, from puffins to guillemots on the rock faces to skylarks and linnets in the fields and trees. Porpoises can often be seen on calm days and if you are there just after sunrise, you may see the elusive roe deer. From May to September, the RSPB runs a number of cruises from Bridlington Harbour, including its Diving Gannet Cruises.

Hunmanby Gap, an unspoilt golden-sanded beach, is a 10-minute walk from the apartment and the bustling seaside town of Filey is a 2.8 walk along the shoreline or three miles by road. Scarborough, one of England’s most iconic seaside resorts, is nine miles away, where you can enjoy some of the best fish and chips in the country.

Last Word

This delightful holiday pad could be for just the two of you, or there’s the option of it being booked in tandem with a neighbouring apartment that sleeps four. This isn’t where its versatility ends because although it has one bedroom, there is also a folding bed for an extra guest.

It is in The Bay, a self-sufficient holiday development that boasts a pub, shop, chemist and a beauty spa. The activity centre has an indoor heated swimming pool, gym, sauna and steam room. There is also a putting green and walking and cycling trails around its lakes. There are plenty of picnic tables and BBQ spots; however, this apartment has a private alfresco dining space right outside its door, thanks to it being on the ground floor. Attention to detail is evident with a fully equipped kitchen that includes a washer/dryer and a dishwasher. If the last thing you want to do is cook during your break, the John Paul Jones pub serves food seven days a week from noon to 10 pm.

If you have never travelled to the North Yorkshire coast and have always wondered if it’s all its cut out to be, Beachcomber’s Rest is an ideal base to prove that it is an area in a league of its own. Its pristine beaches, many with Blue Flag status, and its natural wonders are going to win your heart over.
