Full description
The Old Lifeboat House - life looks better upside-down, especially when spent in a spacious and picturesque Hornsea boathouse set right by the seaside!

The peacefully traditional Victorian resort of Hornsea is the perfect setting for this warmly welcoming, family-sized lifeboat house conversion that represents a truly refreshing escape from life's rat race.  It's also an ideal base for exploring all the delights that Yorkshire has to offer.

You'll find plenty of long, wide sandy beaches to enjoy at Hornsea, with your holiday haven just a few minutes' walk away - ideal for those who really do like to be beside the seaside!

The Old Lifeboat House, as its name suggests, is a former lifeboat house that has been beautifully converted to an extremely high standard.  This imaginative and deceptively spacious holiday home sleeps up to six people, ideal for larger families or a group of friends with something to celebrate!  

You'll fall in love with The Old Lifeboat House even before you step through the front door, with its vibrant nautical stained-glass window, sloped roof and quaint, intricately decorated exterior providing a hint of the quality and comfort you'll experience inside.  

Once you've unpacked, get ready to experience life lived upside-down, with a light and sociable first-floor living and dining area that's perfect for congregating over a steaming mug of coffee, before snuggling up beside the fire later on after a hard day lazing on the beach!  

A well-equipped kitchen, complete with electric oven and gas hob, provides all the fixtures and fittings you'll need to prepare and enjoy plenty of relaxed seaside suppers (including a dishwasher to make clearing away easy...well, you are on holiday after all!)

On sunnier evenings, why not head out to the patio, accompanied by a bottle of wine of course! - fire up the barbecue and enjoy a sizzling al fresco spread as you watch the sun go down?  

Choose from three cosy ground floor bedrooms, one double with en-suite shower and two pretty twin rooms.  You'll also find a charming bathroom, equipped with an indulgent bath and shower attachment.

After a hearty breakfast, it's time to explore the local area!  You'll soon find you're in the perfect position to explore the East Coast, whether you want to head into the town centre or enjoy a day at the beach.  15 miles south of Bridlington, Hornsea's refreshingly traditional atmosphere is a delight to discover, as you stroll along the promenade and stunning nearby gardens, or simply lay out your towel on the sand and get lost in a good book.  

Enjoy browsing through the array of independent shops, maybe stopping off for tea and cake along your way!

Nearby Hornsea Mere is the largest natural lake in Yorkshire, ideal for water babies!  Here you'll find plenty of opportunity to indulge in a spot of sailing, fishing and boat trips.

Slightly further afield, nature lovers can get lost in Bempton Cliffs RSPB Reserve, with its colonies of nesting birds and showcasing one of the largest mainland puffin populations in Britain, whilst a short drive will take you to the bustling city of York and The Deep at Hull.

So if you're ready to discover plenty of fresh adventure and reviving relaxation, all wrapped up in an upside-down holiday haven you'll want to return to again and again, then don't delay - book a marvellously memorable stay at the Old Lifeboat House!
