Resting on the cliff top overlooking Thornwick Bay and a breathtaking sea view, this 1930s white-wood detached holiday cottage has visitors in awe of the magnificent, raw beauty of the Yorkshire coastline. You can cook, dine, or relax with a cup of tea, looking out over miles of coastal scenery. Or you can wake up to a panorama of ocean from the upstairs bedroom. Jackobob is a perfect base for a fantastic holiday. In 2015 the cottage was re-roofed, had new Scandinavian windows and doors installed throughout, and a new bathroom.

Interaction with guests
We have always had great reviews. In response to guest comments we decided on a full refurbishment and extension. The cottage is now faultless and in one of the best locations on the east coast of England. We keep prices reasonable as we want the cottage maximally occupied when the family doesnt use it.

Jackobob is a dream home. Absolutely breathtaking, both inside and out. This was our first-ever visit, but definitely not our last. The cottage is luxurious, with every need catered for, and the views quite literally took our breath away. I slept in the bedroom upstairs...More

About the neighbourhood
Resting on the cliff top looking over Thornwick bay and an endless sea view, this 1930s white-wood detached holiday cottage has visitors amazed by the magnificent, natural, raw beauty of the Yorkshire coastline. You can cook, dine or relax with a cup of tea looking out over miles of coastal scenery and wake up to a panoramic oceanic landscape from the upstairs bedroom. Decorated and equipped to a good standard, it is a perfect base for a fantastic holiday. Spectacular cliff walking from the door as you are only 2 miles from the renowned Royal Society for the Protection of Birds Sanctuary of Bempton. Alternatively, you can watch the puffins, razorbills, gannets and short-eared owls from the comfort of your living room – this is quite simply one of the best sea bird watching cottages in Engl... more

How to get there
Airport: Leeds: 100.0 km
Railway: Bridlington: 8.0 km
From the south take M1 until you get to M18 (signposted Doncaster /Hull) follow it until you get to the M62 (sign post Goole/Hull). Follow the M62 until you have gone over the bridge over the river Ouse and then take the next exit to Howden which I think is also signposted Bridlington. Turn right and go straight on to the next roundabout then take the A614 towards Bridlington (BE CAREFUL HERE TO KEEP TO 30MPH UNTIL YOU GET OVER THE NEXT BRIDGE because everyone, and I mean all of the Mothers Union catering committee, have had speeding fines).
Follow all the signs to Bridlington and then follow the signs to Flamborough. When you get to Flamborough village you will get to a sign on the corner to North Landing. Go straight on (over a mini roundabout with a memorial in the middle) and head...
