Immaculately decorated throughout, this coastal retreat offers bright and spacious accommodation with delightful nautical touches in an enviable seaside location.

Situated at the top of Flamborough Head looking out onto the quaint lighthouse, this coastal getaway is the perfect destination for families and their four-legged friends seeking to explore the outdoor attractions and spectacular scenery of East Yorkshire. Stroll the 500m to the nearby Selwicks Bay where dogs are allowed all year round for runs along the sandy beach. Walk the coastal path to Bempton Cliffs to watch the playful puffins who make their home there, and enjoy a leisurely evening meal in one of the dog-friendly village pubs.

This single-storey coastal cottage has a bright and contemporary interior, decorated in a neutral palette with stylish soft furnishings. Leave outdoor clothing in the entrance hall where there is plenty of room for walking boots and leads. After a day walking the coastal path, light the cosy wood burner and curl up on one of the plush sofas for a board game with your canine companion snoozing at your feet. Your light and airy kitchen/diner has everything you need to prepare delicious dinners to share at the dining table. There are two restful bedrooms at the cottage, a charming twin bedroom and a king-size master bedroom with sea views. There is also a family bathroom. Outside, light the BBQ for a casual meal of local seafood and enjoy an early evening drink at the garden table while your hound stretches their paws. There is off-road parking for up to three cars.

Tails will be wagging with the walks accessible from your doorstep, not to mention the coastal path and Yorkshire Wolds Way. Explore the mix of exotic and native trees on a woodland walk through Danes Dyke Nature Reserve (3 miles), finding your favourite shady spot to share a picnic – remember to bring a treat for your furry friend. Discover the bustling seaside town of Bridlington (6.5 miles) aboard the land train where your hound rides for free, or spot seabirds and spectacular scenery on a boat trip around the coastline from the harbour.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • There is a beach within 300 yards that is accessed down a cliff path, care to be taken.

The cottage has a stunning location right by the lighthouse at the top of Flamborough Head. The property faces east out to sea so you can enjoy watching the sun rising each morning. The Lighthouse offers seasonal tours, and it's well worth climbing the steps to the top. There's a great cafe within half a mile which offers delicious all-day breakfasts. There's also a cafe/bistro under the lighthouse - both have incredible sea-views.

The coastal path runs past the lighthouse offering breathtaking walks along the cliffs. Just a hundred yards away from the cottage you'll find a cliff path that takes you down to a fantastic beach surrounded by white cliffs with amazing rock pools waiting to be explored.

Flamborough village is just a few miles away. It's a charming little place with white-washed cottages, a Grade II listed Norman Church and a castle to explore. The village has a Viking heritage - the Flamborough Fire Festival is a Viking themed parade, held on New Year's Eve. It starts in the centre of the village and features the Flamborough Fireballs, Torches, Battle of Flamborough led by King Canute and Viking Longship which is pulled through the village streets by Viking warriors. The parade finishes with a Fireworks Spectacular held at midnight to celebrate the New Year. Like the Obby Oss tradition in Cornwall, it is an ancient and local spectacular not to be missed in the dark days of winter.

Part of the Yorkshire Heritage Coast, Flamborough Head is best known for its towering cliffs which are home to the largest colony of seabirds in the UK, and one of the largest in the whole of Europe. People come from all over the world to birdwatch here, with eider ducks, oystercatchers, gulls and cormorants among the many breeds on show. Nearby Bempton Cliffs are teeming with birds and are one of the best places in the UK to watch puffins.

This area of the Yorkshire coast is also home to an abundance of sea life and it’s possible to spot seals basking on the shorelines and whales swimming off-shore. How about a spot of sea kayaking or a boat trip around the headland to get up-close? If you're a wildlife enthusiast, it's pure heaven! The Living Seas Visitor Centre (run by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust) is at South Landing, under 5 miles from the cottage. They organise nature trips for adults and children which are great fun for the whole family.

There are also several very family-friendly sandy beaches within easy reach. The idyllic beaches of North and South Landing are perfect for little ones to splash around in the sea and discover mini beasts lurking in the rockpools. The beaches here are also great for a spot of fossil hunting too. And if all that sounds a little too energetic, how about just throwing down a blanket for an afternoon picnic?

There are lots of great seaside resorts to visit nearby, including world-famous Scarborough (17 miles). Make your way up through the historic streets to explore Scarborough Castle, or pop into St Mary's churchyard to visit Ann Bronte's grave. Enjoy a stroll around the South Cliff area taking in the famous Spa and Italian Gardens. Catch the cliff lift down to the beach and walk around to the peaceful North Bay, visit the renowned Sea Life Centre or explore the beautiful Peasholm Park with its boating lake, woodland walks and oriental influences.

The cottage’s position means you are also perfectly placed to take in the best of the Wolds and North York Moors. This dramatic landscape of heather and open moorland is just a short drive away. And with lots of attractions like Sewerby Hall and Gardens (3 miles) and Burton Agnes (6 miles) within easy reach, there are lots of choices for day trips.

Rock Lobster has to be the best cottage we have ever stayed in. Stunning location with walking from the doorstep and the owners have gone above and beyond to make it a real home away from home very stylish and comfortable with everything you need provided. We were very sorry to leave and will most certainly return.

A truly wonderful property in a gorgeous location by the amazing lighthouse! Only regret is not being able to stay longer (we only had 3 nights) as the owners have done a cracking job in providing everything you need and in decorating and furnishing to such a high but homely standard. One of the best we have stayed in (and we have stayed in a lot!)Read more, the log burner was just fantastic to warm up after a long walk in the November weather and its much more spacious than the pictures suggest! Owners even texted us on arrival to check all was OK which was a nice touch, great location and lovely walks from the doorstep. Highly recommended (I also have no idea why one recent reviewer suggested the bathroom was looking a bit tired as it was spotless and looked like new and was fantastic with lovely bath and great separate shower!).Even had TVs in bedrooms which was a nice touch not enough places consider when you just want to have a lie in, read the paper and watch the news! Many thanks to owners and gorgeous cottages as both were great at communicating all we needed for a great stay! Hide
