About The Bluebell

The Bluebell is an expert when it comes to comfortable accommodation. The large holiday home is in the East Yorkshire village of Burton Agnes, only six miles from the Yorkshire Coast and its beautiful beaches. The former hotel is now a big group self-catering property sleeping up to 52 people in 20 bedrooms, all but one with an ensuite. There is dining space for 40 and an atrium that can seat up to 100 people. Suppose you're hosting a reunion with your extended family, hosting a milestone birthday party, searching for a wedding venue, or arranging a work or team building event. In that case, The Bluebell could be just the place you're looking for.

Burton Agnes is in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The parish church dates back to 1100, and there is a medieval manor house designed by the same architect responsible for Longleat and Hardwick Hall. You can arrange for your groceries to be delivered after your arrival, with a good choice of supermarkets, shops, cafes, pubs and other amenities in Driffield and Bridlington, both around six miles from the house.

The Bluebell has everything you need to keep your guests happily entertained. There's a bar, a huge communal lounge with ample seating, a big flatscreen TV, music, games and books. A separate games room has table tennis, pool, air hockey, and darts - if you can't find the kids, chances are they're in here! The outside space has a patio with garden furniture, a big lawn, and parking for 30 cars. It's possible to hire a hot tub - please speak to the owner about this when booking. Bridlington Beach and the Yorkshire coast is a short drive from the house, while the historic city of York and magnificent Castle Howard (aka Downton Abbey) are both less than an hour away.

Guest's who have booked The Bluebell rate everything highly, from the excellent amenities to the comfortable bedrooms, and the friendly and helpful staff. Bookings are available all year round, and it's possible to arrange for early arrivals and late departures to suit your needs.

Accommodation Comprises:

The Bluebell is a former hotel with communal areas on the ground floor and the bedrooms upstairs:


  • Spacious entrance hallway with sofas to allow use as an extra reception room.
  • Central atrium with a tiled floor, rustic brick walls, and glass doors opening onto the patio. Usually set up as a games room with table tennis, air hockey, snooker, and card tables, it can be transformed into party central with room for 100 seated guests or more for cocktails and canapes.
  • Cosy living room with comfortable sofas and a big flatscreen TV above the fireplace. It's a great place where small groups can escape for some peace and quiet to change, read or watch a film.
  • Dining room with slate flooring, oak beams, and a proper pub bar. Different sized tables and chairs allow you to configure the space to suit the needs and size of your group.
  • Second dining room/breakfast room that can also be used for meetings or breakout activities if you are hosting a business event.
  • Professional catering kitchen with two stoves, two double ovens, two microwaves, twin sinks, and cupboards packed with all of the necessary equipment and utensils to cook and serve meals for lots of people.
  • Single bedroom with a full-sized single bed, wardrobe, and an ensuite with a shower, WC and a handbasin.
  • Bunk room with four twin bunks to sleep eight people. This room is accessed via the single ensuite room next door.
  • Six bedrooms with a superking (6ft-wide) or twin single beds, depending on your required configuration. Each room has proper storage and a private ensuite with either a walk-in shower or a shower over a bath, WC and a handbasin.


  • All but one of the upstairs bedrooms are similarly furnished and finished to those on the ground floor, with superking/twin beds, proper storage, and an ensuite shower room or bathroom with a WC and a handbasin.
  • Master bedroom with a king-sized four-poster bed, storage and an ensuite.
