broom house b&b

More and more of us are holidaying on home turf here in the UK and we love a relaxing stay-cation with the best of them.

In fact, a whopping 75% of us Brits will take a short break or holiday in the UK this year, exploring our wonderful country and all the incredible sights and attractions it has to offer.

From the electrifying and culturally enriched cities such as London, Glasgow and Leeds, through to the breathtaking coastlines and gloriously kitsch seaside resorts, GB is gloriously gorgeous.

In fact earlier this year, my husband Peter and eldest son Oliver took their very own staycation after a certain ‘passport mishap’ meant they couldn’t join the rest of the family as we holidayed in Marbella for a week.

As much as I LOVED my week away in Marbs, I was also secretly envious of the boys’ fun-filled series of mini-breaks, heading to Liverpool, Southport and Wales. It’s since inspired me to explore our incredible country more and I’ve developed an ever growing bucketlist of the places I want to visit.

And one of the great things about holidaying in the UK, is all the wonderful Bed & Breakfasts that are on offer, ideal for families wanting a laid back weekend away.

This weekend I’ll be heading to Egton Bridge which is near one of my favourite coastal towns, Whitby, staying and reviewing the Broom House Bed and Breakfast as part of the Dorset Cereals B&B Awards in association with Sawdays.

This is the first year that Dorset Cereals has held these awards and there’s still time to enter your favourite B&B as nominations close on Aug 30th! So hurry!

The B&B that receives the most votes over the course of the year will be celebrated in a prestigious awards ceremony.

You can nominate your top B&B here.

I’m also excited to announce that Dorset Cereals have offered an Honest Mum reader the chance to win an incredible hamper – details of the prize and entry criteria can be found at the end of this post!

But first let me take a moment to share my excitement about our getaway to the brilliant Broom House.

Even though I’m Yorkshire born and bred, I will never tire of exploring my home county. And no wonder – it is genuinely one of the most beautiful places on the planet. And despite visiting the Yorkshire Dales National Park countless times; the views enrich me, I always leave feeling rested and rejuvenated, ready to face the world again anew.

The bed and breakfast is located in the perfect spot to explore ‘God’s own county’, nestled between coast and countryside, it is the ideal base for trips to Whitby and Scarborough, as well as the North York Moors.

The B&B itself is as stunning as its views over the Esk Valley…the luxe rooms are en-suite with stunning stylish contemporary decor, as well as all the mod-cons such as TV, Wifi and a DVD player to keep the little ones happy at down time.

Broom House in famous for its charming 1 acre garden too so hopefully the weather permitting, we can enjoy al fresco fun together.

    We love Raspberry and Rpple muesli and their Haselnut and Brazil museli. Sorry I haven’t been to Yorkshire.

  2. Fiona K

    I love all of their mueslis and porridge. I visited York Minster on a school trip many years ago but I’ve never been back to Yorkshire since.

  3. Alison Macdonald

    All of the mueslies with nuts in (love a bit of nutty crunch in the morning) 🙂

  4. Emma Fox

    Head down Flamborough South Shore at high tide to watch the lifeboat drills – I like the berry granola

  5. George Worboys Wright

    I really enjoyed their Chocolate & Macadamia Granola for a treat! My sightseeing tip is Dalby Forest, part of the North York Moors National Park, perfect for walking, nature trails, cycling & picnics. Wilsthorpe beach & Fraisthorpe beach are great for having fun with your dogs.

  6. Iris W

    Berry Granola. I love Yorkshire especially Whitby and the moors. There are some lovely villages in north yorkshire.

  7. trevor linvell

    The classic Fruits,nuts and seeds Muesli is delicious and ive never been to yorkshire

  8. simon hardy

    I like the gloriously nutty muesli. We always visit the Viking museum whenever we go to York.

  9. Helen Craigs

    Yorkshire is full of beautiful villages and amazing unsoilt countryside. My favourite places are Great Ayton (North Yorkshire) and Richmond (West Yorkshire) – pretty villages with lots of history.

  10. Samantha Mann

    I love this Granola.

    My husband is from Yorkshire, he grew up in Holmfirth (where last of the summer wine was filmed) and then moved to the Outibridge area. There are some amazing walks in the area which if you get to visit id suggest doing.

  11. Kay Foster

    I love really like the berry granola! Not holidayed too much in Yorkshire, but love visiting Harrogate.

  12. Karen Laing

    If I read the question correctly I would have put my Berry Granola and places to visit in the same comment,however I didn’t.So,my favourite place to visit is Yorkminster Cathedral.I’ve visited several times and I love it,I haven’t found another cathedral to match this for it’s architecture,it’s stunning and I’ll never tire of it x

  13. olivia Kirby

    I like their nutty muesli.
    We often go on holiday to North Yorkshire. Beningborough Hall is a beautiful National Trust property and never very busy. I think joining the National Trust is one of the of the best things we’ve ever done.

  14. Nancy Bradford

    Stockeld Park is a must for families. They have a great maze, too many playgrounds to count (like nothing I’ve ever seen), indoor soft play and cafe and an ice skating rink on the day we visited. Well worth the money.
