Flamborough Manor

Welcome

A Manor of Flamborough was recorded in the Domesday Book and one has existed ever since. The current Manor, dating from the last quarter of the 18th century and Grade II listed, is a classic Georgian small country house of pleasing proportion.

Accommodation

We have been providing Bed & Breakfast (B&B) accommodation since 1987, when we first joined Wolsey Lodges, a private consortium of like-minded accommodation providers. We have tried to include as much information as possible on this site, but please do not hesitate to contact us, if there are any queries.

When booking Accommodation

As we have only two guests' bedrooms, cancellations affect us more than would be the case for larger Guesthouses. For this reason, and in line with what is now standard practice, when booking accommodation, in addition to the usual details (name, address, telephone number) we require a valid credit card from which we take a non- refundable deposit. In the unfortunate event of cancellation, please be aware that additional charges are also levied, and these are set out in detail on the Tariff page.

As the range of our activities is so diverse, we have a number of different websites. The main Flamborough Manor site, which is where you are now, focuses primarily on accommodation (bed & breakfast) but has brief details of all our other activities. To allow for more information to be presented on these other activities, we have other self- contained web-sites and some of the links you will encounter while browsing these pages will take you to these separate sites.

The Manor House
A Brief History of the House
The Manor House was built early in the 18th century (replacing an earlier Manor on this site) and was then re-fronted and remodelled in the early 19th century. The present building, which is constructed of rendered chalk and brick with stone dressings, is Grade II listed. The original rear wall is of massive chalk rubble and is probably part of the earlier Manor. Apart from internal alterations, the house remained little changed until the early 1970s, when it was left abandoned for most of the decade, resulting in a marked deterioration of the fabric of the house. When purchased by Lesley Berry in 1979 in took two years to restore to its former glory.
This aerial photograph dates from about 1930 and shows the present Manor House surrounded by open fields, most of which have since been developed with the exception of the large Tower Field (to the west of the house) which still contains the remains of the old fortified Manor of the Constable Family.
This aerial photograph dates from about 1990 and shows the current layout of the house and outbuildings. The main part of the house is set back from Lighthouse Road, with ample parking available in front of the small shop.
For much of the 1970s, the Manor House was derelict. It was restored by the current owner, using local craftsmen, between 1979 and 1981. This was a major undertaking which involved replacing floors, taking the roof off, and considerable internal redecoration in addition to the landscaping.
The photograph above probably dates from the 1940s and again shows the Manor House and attached buildings virtually isolated by surrounding farmland and fields, much of which has been encroached upon by subsequent building.
The house is on the corner of Tower Street and Lighthouse Road but is set back from both and is well shielded. The photograph above shows the Lighthouse Road entrance at far right, with the small converted outbuilding behind the trees, and The Manor House further back still (just visible in the far left).
Flamborough Parish Church (St Oswald's) is situated a few hundred yards from the Manor House. The Tower dates from 1897, but parts of the Church are much older and the chancel arch is Norman. The main feature is a rood screen, described as "one of the most complete in the Riding, even though much is renewed."
The grounds feature a small walled garden and a more formal rose garden (shown above)
