Beautiful period house with lots of charm and quirkiness. Had a lovely week with the family staying here. Lots to do and the house has plenty of entertainment provided for the kids. Caretaker is also very friendly and helpful and lives nearby.
Walmsley house is situated in easy walking distance of Bempton cliffs where there are fantastic views of the east Riding coast and watch sea birds fly to and from their precarious cliff side nests. the house has 3 different reception rooms,all decent sized, so family groups can spread out and enjoy different activities
This was a perfect place for a 3 generational family get together...we have been more than once and will certainly be going again.

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at Walmsley House in Bempton, near Bridlington.
A group of us stayed mid-March for my birthday, in total there were 6 adults and 6 children and I was amazed how spacious the house was. Prior to arrival we nicknamed the weekend ‘The Cottage’ which was the biggest understatement ever; the house is huge!
At all times we knew the kids were fine, yet not under our feet - perfect. On arrival as adults we were all astounded at the size of the house and how beautifully decorated it was throughout, and as children they were all so incredibly grateful that they are hassling us for a return visit (we had tears from 4 out of 6 on departure). The snug had a Wii and was very soon taken over as the kids own room (although the men hijacked it for the Rugby as the surround sound is fantastic) and the ladies commandeered the conservatory which also turned into a great venue for board games for all when the kids were (finally) asleep. The garden is very big, we would have loved to have had BBQ weather to take advantage of the large BBQ in the garden, the kitchen spacious and very well equipped and the dining room stunning with a huge table and an open fire. The village was lovely, post office/village shop 30 second walk, The White Horse pub reopened directly opposite while we were there and we noticed an Ostrich farm (I think!) when we were driving to the coast.
We visited Bempton Cliffs, Bridlington and Flamborough Head all of which were very enjoyable even when cold! This really is a wonderful home and we are in the process of arranging to rebook! The owners are exceptionally helpful and have been throughout.
Cannot recommend the ‘cottage’ enough!
