Stay at The Old Mill Bed and Breakfast and enjoy coast and country. Set in the countryside we are only 15 miles from the dramatic cliffs of Bempton and Flamborough. We have "Big Skies Bike Rides", mapped circular bike rides immediately surrounding the Bed and Breakfast.
After cycling the hills and coast of the Yorkshire Wolds relax in our cosy lounge with log burner. Enjoy a drink in the bar and a meal in the restaurant. See our evening meals menu here. Secure storage and washing facilities for cycles available on site.
Our clients say
The Old Mill is one of those rare little gems that you occasionally manage to find that is more preferable to stay at than one of the standard chain Bed and Breakfasts. I am not surprised at the number of excellent reviews the Bed and Breakfast has received and it pleases me that I am able to contribute something positive.
