Hotels in Hornsea
Hornsea is a charming seaside town in the East Riding of Yorkshire, in north-east England. Its location at the end of the Trans Pennine Trail makes it the perfect destination for keen ramblers. However, it is also home to a beautiful stretch of beach and some lovely vintage seaside attractions.
The thing that distinguishes Hornsea from the many other beautiful towns in east Yorkshire is its remarkable sandy Blue Flag beach. Go down to the water's edge and spend the day making sandcastles and taking dips in the sea.
If you aren't feeling up to the rigors of a day on the beach, or if the weather does not permit this, then take a stroll arm-in-arm down Hornsea's delightfully wide old Victorian promenade. As you breathe in the sea air and debate whether or not to get an ice cream, you may start to wonder why you'd ever leave a place so exceedingly lovely.
A rich history
Though it is a very small town, Hornsea has an illustrious past. Once a centre of pottery production, Hornsea Pottery came to be known the world over for its delicacy and intricate patterns. In order to understand the town's heritage, a visit to the Hornsea Folk Museum is essential.
Inside the museum's interactive displays and the largest collection of Hornsea Pottery in the world will not fail to beguile visitors of all ages. Just across the road from the museum is another grand building. Bettison Folly is the perfect complement to the museum, as the imposing tower is decorated with hundreds of locally made ‘treacle' bricks.
A short day trip from Hornsea is another architectural gem waiting to be explored. Burton ConsSEOSITE_LEVEL_DESCRIPTION Hall is a stunning Elizabethan mansion set in 300 acres of luscious parkland. Browse its more than 30 rooms of fine art and furniture. After you're done cooing, stop off at the Tea Rooms for a snack and a warm cuppa.
Trans Pennine Trail
For those of you that are into reaching your destination organically, Hornsea is also at the finishing point of the Trans Pennine Trail. This 215-mile route takes in some of the most breathtaking scenery in the country and walking even a small section of it is a must for ramblers of any standard.
Food and drink
After a day on the beach, or up in the Pennines, you'll want to get some warm food down you. Hornsea will not let you down in this department, as it is home to a wide array of restaurants serving all kinds of cuisines.
The Crafty Coffee Shop is a great place to head to after you've been for a dip. Not only does it serve up excellent cups of coffee, but it also has a superb selection of tapas and other Spanish dishes to choose from.
For something a little bit more traditional English seaside, head to The Trawlerman for some of the best fish and chips you will find in the whole country. Cool down after your fish supper with a refreshing pint at The Marine, which is also a good place for a celebratory drink after you've trekked the Trans Pennine Trail.
With so much to do in and around the town, a Hornsea hotel will make the perfect base for your holiday.
