What To Do Near Bempton During Summer Holidays
The summer break is the busiest time of year in Bempton, as holidaymakers flock to the area to take in the beautiful countryside, enjoy days out at the beach and get back to nature. Here are just a few things you can do if you have booked a cottage in Bempton this summer.
1) RSPB Bempton Cliffs
One attraction that has firmly put this quaint village in East Riding on the map is its RSPB site, Bempton Cliffs. More than half a million seabirds flock here every year from March to October, making the summer the ideal time to catch sight of the likes of gannets, skylarks, meadow piptits, whitethroats, tree sparrows, and even puffins.
These birds can be seen nestled into the chalky white cliffs between April and July, so bring your binoculars for a chance to spot a few.
Take a walk along the five-kilometre stretch of Yorkshire coast and you might even see seals and porpoises in the waves crashing below.
2) Bridlington seaside
If you want to show your kids a quintessential English seaside town, come to Bridlington, just a ten-minute drive away. You can have fun in the arcades, enjoy fresh fish and chips on the beach, hop on fairground rides and grab some candy rock to take home. If you’re feeling brave, why not jump into the fresh waters after building as many castles as you can on the long sandy shore?
3) Dane’s Dyke
Another beach worth exploring is Dane’s Dyke, which is thought to date back to the Iron Age. This outcrop is the most northerly in Britain and is a great place to visit if your children love collecting pebbles and shells.
Alternatively, you can hire a horse and trot along the bridle path or hunt around for fossils.
