The
Yorkshire Coast

Coneygarth Logo Glyph

Blue flag beaches,
pretty villages
& dramatic coastline

The Yorkshire Coast is one of the UK’s most popular seaside coastlines, with an abundance of Blue Flag beaches, a classic mix of English Seaside resorts, heritage sites around Flamborough Head and idyllic fishing villages offering up the best ‘fresh from the catch’ seafood.

Hornsea

The seaside town of Hornsea is perfect for a family day out, with lovely sandy beach and a busy promenade to stroll along. There are plenty attractions for the whole family with an abundance of quality fish & chip shop, amusements and Hornsea Leisure Centre.

The town has retained a pleasant village atmosphere and people come from miles around to visit. Hornsea’s colourful history of smuggling, a trade which was aided and abetted by the entire town, has since been replaced with quant independent shops and cosy tea rooms.

At the north end of the promenade, Hornsea’s Floral Hall stages festivals, concerts, plays and dances throughout the year and Hornsea Freeport Shopping Village offers everything from big name fashion brands to kitchenware and china at hugely discounted prices. The award-winning Hornsea Folk Museum is housed within a historic farmhouse in the town centre, with a Victorian farm kitchen, dairy, blacksmith`s shop and large gardens. Pottery, spinning and lace-making demonstrations take place regularly.

Just outside the town, Honeysuckle Farm is an ideal outing for the family and children have great fun helping to feed the sheep, horses and a host of other farm animals. A trip to Hornsea Mere, the largest freshwater lake in Yorkshire, is also recommended, whether it’s a picnic on the lake, a sneaky coffee in the Café or having a go at the gentler watersports, like sailing, rowing and fishing around the lake, this is definitely a place to visit.

Wassand Hall, situated just outside of Hornsea on the B1244, contains a collection of 18th and 19th century paintings and portraits of past owners of Wassand Hall; a collection of English and European silver, furniture and procelain from the same period. The house, gardens and parks are open on selected days during the summer, when teas are available in the fine conservatory in Wassand’s beautifully planted walled gardens.

Bridlington, Scarborough & Whitby

The country’s oldest historic seaside resort is at Scarborough, a true dazzler for heritage seaside architecture from the Victorian Spa building and Grand Hotel to The Rotunda, one of England’s best geological museums. Scarborough is a vintage seaside gem which offers water sports, aquariums, pleasure boating parks, seaside cliff lifts and spectacular views over the bay.

Maritime Whitby, with its close links with Captain Cook and courtesy of Bram Stoker – Dracula is another Yorkshire Coast holiday hotspot. The Cook Memorial Museum in Whitby pays due homage to the town’s famous apprentice who went on from Whitby to undertake his three epic voyages. Whitby is also a feast for the specialist shopper with a fine choice of arts and crafts shops including jewellers selling the famous Whitby Jet. Whitby Abbey ruins, relatively intact compared to others in the UK, stands as a magnificent gothic feature high above Whitby town on the east cliff. Whitby is great for a day out with a hive of activities, including fun family Dracula attractions, ghost tours, boat trips and a range of specialist shops and inns.

Looking for family fun on the Yorkshire Coast, then head straight to the bustling seaside town of Bridlington, with its pretty harbour, family beaches and amusements lining the promenade you are sure to find something the whole family can enjoy.
