Situated between the villages of Buckton and Bempton, renowned for the world famous bird sanctuary, Ivydene is a family-sized, detached holiday house with a large, enclosed garden with plenty of space for the children to run around. With countryside views from the garden, the house has been the owner’s family home for the past few years, and the interiors have been decorated to a very good standard, with all the necessary amenities. Built circa 1800 and featuring oak beams in all the rooms, there’s a real elegance to the property, that balances beautifully with its rustic charm and homely feel.
The village has a local shop, café, post office and pub, as well as a children’s park and village community centre. There’s also a train station where you can catch trains to Bridlington, Scarborough and Hull. Take a walk to the bird sanctuary, and see the puffins on the cliffs or the seals perched on the rocks. There are plenty of good beaches along the coast, with Flamborough Head, Scarborough and Bridlington all close by. The walks along the cliffs can lead you up to Filey and on to the Cleveland Way, and there are lots of little coves and seaside villages en-route.
Yorkshire is famous for its stately homes, and here at Ivydene, you’re perfectly situated to visit most of them. Sewerby Hall, Burton Agnes Hall, Sledmere House, and the beautiful Castle Howard should be high on the list. For children, there’s Flamingo Land, Eden Camp and Go Ape, as well as the magnificent Dalby Forest that’s full of winding mountain bike tracks. Beach 3 miles by car, with Bempton Cliffs and the heritage coastline only 1 mile away, accessed by a nearby public footpath next to the village pond. Post office, coffee shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.
