Bridlington dogs welcome self-catering cottages
Wondering about where you can go for a holiday with your dogs this year? May we suggest Bridlington on the east Yorkshire coast?
‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside. I do like to be beside the sea’; just a couple of lines from Mark Sheridan’s famous coastal song which you’ll be singing ten to the dozen, if you come and visit the beautiful town of Bridlington this year. Come with your dog and enjoy seaside walks with lovely views across the North Sea.
Rent a pet-friendly holiday let in the town or outside it to enjoy a seaside break with your dogs. All streets in the town lead down to the sea and the beach. Find comfortable lodgings in self-catered accommodation. There are dog-friendly pine lodges and country cottages on the outskirts of Bridlington and towards Flamborough Head. These are of various sizes to accommodate couples, families and even hen party groups.
Bridlington is fun for holidays.
In Bridlington, there’s something to do for everybody. With its golden and award winning North and South beaches (Quality Coast Award 2011, Quality Coast Bucket and Spade Award 2016), you will feel like you’ve jetted away to the Caribbean, not to a little seaside town in East Yorkshire. If it’s peace and tranquillity you want, you’ll have it in abundance as you stroll along the extensive golden sands and gaze in wonder at the stunning white cliffs of Flamborough, a bird watching paradise. However, if it’s vibrancy and crowds you desire, then on the South beach, you can peruse around a wide variety of high quality eateries like Yips Chinese restaurant and the popular and pet friendly Richie’s café on the spectacular Princess Mary’s promenade. The South beach is also home to arguably Bridlington’s most shining light; The Spa. But hold on, it’s not quite what you think. Instead of a relaxing water experience, The Spa is in fact Yorkshire’s premier venue for meetings and events and has staged some of the UK’s favourite music acts like The Who and The Rolling Stones.
A comfortable holiday home for your stay in Bridlington with your pets
With attractions like this, surely you’ll be tempted to come and see what all the fuss is about. Well if you are, then come on over with all the family and book a charming self-catered cottage placed perfectly on the seafront. Not only will you thoroughly enjoy the fresh sea air that’s right on your doorstep but you’ll also appreciate the stove effect electrical fire in your living room that will keep you nice and toasty in those frosty yet attractive winter months. If you’re lucky enough to visit during summer, where the town centre of Bridlington certainly comes alive, your chosen cottage can also be your personal haven. Why not open up your sophisticated French doors and grab a well-earned deckchair on the spacious patio while your children run and play tirelessly with the dog among the tall, evergreen trees in the freshly mown garden? Your cottage will look just as impressive on the inside as it does on the outside. Take advantage of the many nooks and crannies in your fully furnished kitchen and prepare a holiday feast for your loved ones. If you’re looking for the freshest and tastiest local ingredients available in Bridlington, you must head over to the vibrant King Street Market which is the place to be for local folk every weekend. It’s the towns’ tradition especially on Sundays, to try and buy the finest catch of fish for the most reasonable price possible and bring it back home for supper.
Your comfy, King-size beds will be extremely difficult to get out of in the morning, but a day exploring Bridlington and its local surroundings is most definitely worth the get up and go. As well as strolling down North and South beach, you can give your pet pooch a countryside treat by taking it up Bridlington Hill and revelling in the views of the array of houses and farms that you can see from the top. Alternatively, if you want to challenge yourselves, you can do a 7 mile circular route along the sensational sloping headland to the neighbouring village of Bempton. Certainly one to seek out if you have a strong head for heights.
And what better way to relax after your hike than coming back to your breathtakingly beautiful cottage and slumping on the plethora of plentiful sofas in your living room? Cosy up to your loved ones and stick your favourite programme on the 40 inch plasma TV as your satisfied dog curls up by your worn out feet. Get a glass of wine in your hand and a box of chocolates in easy reach of you, as the electrical fire works its magic. Pure unadulterated bliss for man and beast!
