This was our first holiday booking of this style previously we had only stayed in hotels. The cottage appealed as soon as we opened the front door. It was clean, had a fresh smell to it and was tastefully decorated. The owners have skilfully retained the character and age of the property whilst incorporating modern features. All rooms had the essentials needed and the property layout whilst very functional had the air associated with older properties. The location being on a main road into Hornsea may give rise to apprehension but despite not being double glazed we found that the slight distance from the road kept noise levels down sufficiently that we were untroubled. Surprisingly we also had very little noise transfer from adjacent properties. Close by was Hornsea Mere and a childrens play area. 3 pubs within 200 yards meant that food, drink and a varied entertainment theme was "on the doorstep" but we found the pubs were only lightly patronised and didn't create and form of disturbance. The village started on the doorstep and continued for about half a mile down a single main street. The beach is quite a step away being at the far end of the village which is where a lovely little sports centre is with good indoor swimming facilities. Having enjoyed this style of accommodation we will be trying other cottages. We would have no hesitation in returning to Elizabeth House and will try to return later in the year with relatives.
