The chalk hills and pristine coastline of the East Riding of Yorkshire rival anywhere in the country when it comes to outstanding natural beauty. This peaceful part of the county is hugely popular with holidaymakers, and it's not hard to see why. If the natural beauty isn't enough to entice, visitors will be overawed by the charming market towns and fascinating cultural and historical attractions on offer. One of the county's most popular places is the eight miles of coastline between Filey and Bridlington known as Flamborough Head. Loved by holidaymakers throughout the year, there are plenty of places to stay nearby.
Stunning Natural Beauty
Flamborough Head offers some of the country's most rugged and beautiful coastline. Sheer white cliffs look out to the epic North Sea, offering gorgeous views all year round. There are two ancient lighthouses sitting just off the coast, dating from 1669 and 1806 respectively, and a charming little village to grab refreshments on long walks.
Plenty to Do
With such an abundance of beauty, it would be easy to do little more than relax at Flamborough Head, but for the more actively minded, there's plenty to see and do.
The cliffs at Flamborough provide shelter for many important seabirds, making it a popular spot with keen bird watchers. Hiking is great in the area and experienced kayakers can enjoy a paddle between the headlands, enjoying the view from down below. There's also an exceptional golf course that is a stone’s throw from Flamborough.
Hotels near the Coastline
As the coast is one of the county's prize attractions, it's hardly surprising that the area's home to some of the most popular guesthouses and hotels in the East Riding of Yorkshire. By far the widest selection of places to stay is in the nearby coastal resort of Bridlington, which also boasts a pair of inviting sandy beaches.
The bulk of the guesthouses in Bridlington are located in the streets which peel away from the north beach. B&Bs in this part of Bridlington offer easy access to the popular Old Town and the town's foremost attractions, such as the Priory and the Bayle Museum. There are also plenty of great restaurants nearby.
