Following a tip off from one of our guests we headed out this morning to Thornwick Bay near Flamborough Head to see the puffins.

Just £1.50 at the car park gets you access to the Bay (and the caves at low tide) as well the chance to see puffins and razorbills close up. When the tide is out, you can stand right underneath their flight path as they come in to their nests. Thornwick Bay is a pretty spectacular beach in its own right, full of contrasting chalk stones and colourful shingle.

To top it all off there is a traditional cafe on the headland serving cooked breakfasts and burgers.

Thornwick Bay is jsut a 50 minute drive from our holiday cottages on the edge of the Noth York Moors National Park.  A visit to Thornwick can also be combined with a visit to nearby Flamborough Head (site of the first engagement of the foundling US Navy!) and RSBP Bempton Cliffs, where you can see puffins, gannets and more.
