  • Mr Meehan

    “Another enjoyable break at this comfortable and well located cottage.”

    As it was summer this time we were fully able to appreciate the enclosed garden and BBQ as well as the local beaches. The owners are both helpful and pleasant and we will return next year.

The property

On the outskirts of the centre of Filey, North Yorkshire, in the village of Hunmanby, travel down the single track road up to an equestrian small-holding and discover Honeycomb Cottage, a beautifully finished holiday property.

A great place to enjoy a holiday with the family, or maybe a break away with some friends, you can take advantage of the fantastic location with country walks on your doorstep in one direction and a seaside adventure in the other.

A leather sofa suite can be found in the country-style sitting room where you can look forward to returning to after a long day out on the beach, with a Smart TV and DVD for your entertainment, or maybe take a book from the shelf to unwind into your evening.

Cater for the group using the delightful kitchen stocked with a good range of appliances before hosting a delicious meal at the dining table and toast to your holiday!

Venture upstairs in the evening to the bedrooms; choose from a king-size room or a twin room, with the twin holding a single sofa bed as well to accommodate a fifth guest when needed.

Both rooms benefit from velux windows which allow the light to flood through in the day time, showcasing the pretty decor, solid wood furniture, and exposed beams on the slanting ceiling, all adding excellent character and charm to this already impressive property.

Being set on the owner's equestrian small-holding, you are afforded with a luscious enclosed garden, safe for your pets and children to run around on a warm summer day, while you can make use of the outdoor furniture and take in the views over the fields out to Filey, and the horses grazing in the paddock.

A short stroll can take you into the village of Hunmanby where you can visit the local Co-op for your food essentials, or take a night off from cooking and indulge in a great pub lunch at one of the several pubs situated there serving classic tasty dishes.

For a fun and activity packed beach day get down to Filey Beach, a 5-mile stretch of golden sands, ride horses along the beach, explore the rock pools with the little ones, or hire a classic beach hut to relax in.

The Flamborough Headland Heritage Coast is within easy driving distance where scenic stretches of white chalk cliffs can be discovered on a coastal hike as well as a spot of birdwatching as you come upon historic lighthouses.

The North York Moors lie in the opposite direction further north, with a plethora of options for how to enjoy the beautiful rugged landscape, from walking, to cycling, to mountain biking and more, you are spoilt for choice.

Honeycomb Cottage is a special property in a great location waiting to show you the best of North Yorkshire.

About the location


Scarborough 7.5 miles; Bridlington 11 miles.

Filey is a traditional English seaside resort with a friendly atmosphere, offering a restful holiday, making an ideal place to stay for walkers and wildlife watchers at any time of the year. A real gem on the Yorkshire coast. A fishing town on the North East Coast, Filey has enjoyed a reputation of being a resort since Victorian times, set beside the magnificent Filey Bay, a long stretch of beautiful sand, with Filey Brigg and its shallow rockpools to the north. Filey Brigg is a low headland that protects Filey Bay and provides good bird watching and seawatching opportunities all year round. The 400 ft high Bempton Cliffs (RSPB Reserve) to the south of Filey Bay are home to over 250,000 seabirds in the summer. Gannets, kittiwakes, puffins, guillimots and razorbills all nest there. Gannets are regularly seen diving for fish in Filey Bay. The Brigg area is an ideal place to watch for common and rarer waders, seabirds and migrating warblers,finches and thrushes. As well as seabirds, seals and other marine life, such as porpoises dolphins and minke whales can be seen in the sea around the Brigg. The town itself seems almost caught in a time warp, retaining much of its character with individual shops, narrow paths and ginnels. There is a small coble landing, a slipway where local fishermen keep their boats, plus delightful beach chalets that can be hired through the summer months. The bay is edged with two promenades and there are various gardens, where brass bands play on a Sunday afternoon. This small town is family orientated, crazy golf and candy floss. Also in Filey there is the Filey Dams Nature Reserve, a wetland reserve where common and rare waders and wildfowl can be seen as well as autumn gatherings of swallows, sand martins and house martins. Also there is Parish Wood (just off Sycamore Avenue) an unexpected gem that offers a wealth of wildlife. Willow warbler, chiffchaff, blackcap and tree sparrows breed there and a wide variety of other species are regularly seen such as great spotted woodpeckers and sparrow hawks. Parish Wood also provides shelter and food for a wide range of migrant bird species such as goldcrests, pied and spotted flycatchers, warblers, finches, thrushes and woodcocks. A short drive brings you to the busier town of Scarborough where for family fun you can visit the Alpamare Waterpark, a waterpark unlike anything the UK has ever seen before, as well as plenty to explore and discover in this lovely area.

Pet friendly – two well-behaved pets welcome Free Wi-Fi. Private parking for two cars to the front of the cottage.
