Had a lovely week at Jakobob, the cottage had everything we needed and the views were outstanding. Great to watch the wildlife & birds especially the barn owl which was a regular visitor right in front of the cottage. Perfect place to relax & unwind but also plenty to do within the area. Definitely booking again !

Many thanks for the lovely review. And also for the useful feedback which meant we replaced the washing machine and iron this week. Hope you can visit again.

“wonderful cottage, very enjoyable”
Reviewed May 12, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Jackobob is in a great position, close to the coastal path near the Flamborough cliffs.

All was clean and cosy, and easy to relax in, with views breathtaking. Loved the top floor bedroom it was like being the captain of a ship when looking out to sea with exceptionally comfortable bed. Amazing bathroom very clean and modern, All downstairs rooms very comfortable, sleeps a total of 6 people. Downstairs lounge large and topped off with a multi fuel stove, which kept us warm and cosy.

Patio doors lead to private garden with table and seating.

The local area is of outstanding natural beauty. Lovely coastal walks, 2 miles to Flamborough. the 2 mile walk to bempton cliffs nature reserve highly recommended.

There are four places to eat and drink within 10 to 15 mins walking distance. The Flamborough village is only a 5 minute drive, plenty of places to eat and drink and shop for essentials.

All in all highly recommended.

We arrived in the dark following a long, slow drive in busy post christmas traffic up the M1. The cottage was welcoming, with lots of fuel for the wood burning stove, and we were soon relaxing by its heat. Waking before dawn to watch the stunning views from the top bedroom reveal themselves was sublime.
In a place this beautiful, well equipped and cosy, it's hard to move from the comfy sofas to explore further than the local cliff tops.

What a lovely stay.Suited the wide age range of family aged 14 to 75.Walks from the door!!Enough adventure for the teenagers and young adults on the beach and the rocks.Lots to do nearby too if you can drag self away from the cliffs.Even if weather was bad would still be enjoyable.Lots of fuel for fire and detailed instructions.Some hot spots for WiFi but spent an hour or so in the coffee hutch one afternoon Flamborough which seemed to satisfy the brood.Loved the view from the cottage and all the friendly walkers.Have given 4 plus stars only because owner is in process of updating.the property.

We had a glorious week here. The cottage is cosy, very well equipped and immaculately maintained. The location is absolutely stunning! Thornwick Bay is literally yards from the back garden and there are incredible views all along the coast. Lovely clifftop walks in both directions and sea birds in abundance. We saw puffins in the bay below and there are constant flights of gannets going to and from the nearby reserve at Bemprton. We were also lucky enough to see dolphins off Flamborough Head one afternoon.
Flamborough village is one mile away and has all the essential shops, pubs and fish and chip shops so there is no need to go very far. Information from the owner before our stay was very helpful.
We would certainly recommend this property and hope to return.

I stayed at Jackobob for an early Spring break, trying to get away from city - and work - stresses. It's very easy to get to but takes you entirely away from everything! The cottage itself is homely and well-equipped. And the views from the living room and front bedroom are simply stunning. You'll see the many walkers go past as you sip your glass of wine/cup of hot chocolate! And that's what it's like - walking, visiting the farms, going to local pubs or just reading a book and enjoying the view. Highly recommend!
