Things To Do in Buckton, Bridlington
The seaside town of Bridlington is home to the RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton Cliffs. This RSPB reserve has a puffin colony who inhabit the chalky cliffs along with kittiwakes, fulmars and guillemots. Steeped in history, Bridlington’s Augustinian Priory Church dates back to 1113 AD and hosts regular events and concerts. Children and adults alike will love the traditional atmosphere of Bridlington which has fantastic sandy beaches for building sandcastles and sailing trips from the 900 year old harbour on a pirate ship.
Housed in a Grade 1 listed building in the old town, the Bayle Museum charts the history of Bridlington and is free to enter. The town’s high street is full of independent shops selling bespoke handmade jewellery, antiques and ceramics as well as being home to some fantastic cafés and restaurants.
The walled city of York with its minster, cobbled medieval streets, Georgian architecture, Viking heritage and the National Railway Museum is only an hour from the cottage and is a brilliant day out for all ages. Walk along the castle walls, enjoy tea and cakes at the famous Betty’s Café Tea Rooms or enjoy a boat trip on the River Ouse. Journey back in time to the Viking era at the Jorvik Viking Centre and see what a Viking town would have looked and also smelt like.
The city’s Museum Gardens are lovely for a walk with your pooch and you can see the ruins of St Mary’s Abbey at the same time. Shopping on The Shambles, a tiny street with timber framed buildings, some dating back to the 14th century, near the outdoor market which is open daily. Once the street where the city’s butchers sold their wares, it is now home to tea rooms and independent shops.
Flamborough Head’s quiet beaches are a treat for those who love walking in the company of their canine friend. It has two lighthouses to see dating back to 1669 and 1806, cliff top walks and is great for rock pooling or a brisk walk along the sand and pebbled beach.
Puffin Cottage is an excellent base for a stay in East Yorkshire. Close to the sandy beaches at Filey, Bridlington and Scarborough and the historical city of York, the cottage’s charm lies in its historical features and contrasting modern furnishings. Couples wanting a romantic seaside break will love relaxing in the garden or dining in the conservatory as much as families with children.
Man’s best friend is also catered for in the area, with the dog-friendly café at Flamborough Head and its clifftop walks and sandy beaches a treat for dogs who love to splash in the sea.
Treat yourself to fish and chips for lunch in Bridlington or afternoon tea at Betty’s Café Tea Rooms in York. At the end of the day, relax in the cottage’s cosy living room with the original grated fire warming the room on colder nights.
