What would your dog’s ideal holiday involve? Probably huge stretches of soft sand, with a gently lapping shoreline to dip their paws in. Or an epic coastal hike full of all sorts of caves and crevices just waiting to explore. Then, after a long day of exploring the countryside, a cosy cottage where they can curl up beside a toasty radiator.
Bridlington holidays are perfect for dog lovers and their canine friends. And our Bridlington Holiday Cottages offer a comfy base which is just a stone’s throw from some of the area’s best dog walking spots. Here are just a few of our favourite places…
1. Bridlington Beach
Our holiday cottages are just a short walk away from the vibrant Bridlington Beach, with its calm waters, golden sand, and vintage promenade. If your dog loves the water, this is a great place for a swim or a stroll through the surf. Just watch out for stingrays – on sunny days they’ve been known to drift close to the shore for a spot of sunbathing!
2. Flamborough Headland Heritage Coast
These rugged cliffs are bursting with wildlife and some of the most stunning views that Yorkshire has to offer. Plan a walk to one of the two Victorian lighthouses along the coast, or explore the ruins of the ancient Flamborough Castle just a little further inland. This vast protected area is full of wonderful walks which will be just as much fun for your dog as they are for you. Don’t forget to pack a pair of binoculars – you may be lucky enough to spot one of the local peregrine falcons on the hunt!
3. Filey Beach
Just a 15 minute drive from Bridlington, the award-winning Filey Beach is well worth a visit. This unspoilt five-mile stretch of golden sand was named the Sunday Times’ Beach of the Year in 2018, thanks to its “magical” sands and abundance of wildlife. You and your dog could spend an entire day in this tranquil spot, where you can search for real-life fossils while your dog chases seabirds and rabbits across the headlands. When you’ve finally worn yourselves out, you can share fresh-off-the-boat fish and chips at the historic Coble Landing.
