Eat, Drink & Tan at the Beach House

The Beach House BarThrough all the cloud and rain we've seen this week, we've managed to find ourselves a spot of summer. Forget the weather forecast, you'll never need it again - we've discovered a fantastic little holiday hot-spot in the North of the country.

This week's favourite virtual tour is the newly opened Beach House bar. Nestled at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds in the historic market town of Pocklington, it's a place where sunshine is guaranteed all the year round.

Beach Shack

Large orange lettering and a brightly coloured front door mark the exterior of the Beach House. Step inside and you'll find that even on the darkest, wettest British summer's day, this vibrant venue welcomes you with a tropical warmth.

Timber and Mediterranean-style tiled floors with a backdrop of beach hut walls, Caribbean wallpaper, and full sized surf boards greet visitors to the Beach Hut. Rainbow coloured bottles, stripey cushions, painted box crates, boat oars and giant flip flops are amongst the mix of funky furnishings which can be found all around.

Overhead is a wonderfully eclectic combination of hessian, corrugated metal and brightly painted shutters, lit with lanterns and fairy lights.

Even the restroom hasn't escaped the coastal inspiration, with surf boards, porthole mirrors, beach hut timber, Jamaican-style paintwork, set off by some rather cool wallpaper covering the walls and ceiling.

Show Off your Tan

Eat, Drink and TanThe fridge is stacked high with cold beers behind the counter with its array of colourful fruit, fresh baguettes and cakes - meaning there's plenty of good food and drink to match the sultry surroundings.

And you can complete the holiday experience with some warm rays from the sunbed upstairs, returning home with a tan to convince your friends that you've been away enjoying sunnier climes.

Totally Tropical

Whether it's the kick of an alcoholic cocktail you're looking for, a refreshing smoothie of your own creation, to feed your holiday hunger pangs with a slice of tasty, fresh fare, or to top up your tan, we recommend you sit back, relax and soak up the tropical vibe at the fabulous Beach House bar.

Tourists, locals, wherever in the world you're from, this is one hot-spot of a destination that should definitely be in your travel guide.
