An attractive mid-terrace Victorian property, tucked away in a quiet residential cul-de-sac, in the popular coastal resort of Filey, North Yorkshire.
With a lovely homely feel, this charming cottage offers family-friendly accommodation for enjoying a traditional seaside holiday, in a most delightful town.
Downstairs, there is a very comfortable sitting room, with a large bay window and a cosy open fire, set in the original ornate iron fireplace.
This room leads into the separate dining room, with painted floorboards and an additional inviting open fire.
The galley-style kitchen provides all facilities to prepare tasty family meals, while upstairs are two spacious bedrooms, together with a family bathroom and separate WC.
Outside, there is an enclosed back yard where you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee, whilst planning your next day’s activities.
A five minute walk brings you into the centre of the quaint historic fishing town of Filey, with characterful shops, tempting tea rooms and independent retailers.
Wander down the cobbled slope to the well-manicured promenade, and the tiny landing, to admire the local fishing boats and buy a toffee apple at the small amusement arcade.
The magnificent sweeping bay is every child's dream, with golden sands, shallow rock pools and donkey rides along the beach.
Why not hire one of the brightly painted beach huts for a memorable day in the sunshine?
If you can pull yourself away from this idyllic place, visit the RSPB reserve at Bempton, with its puffins and kittiwakes, or enjoy exhilarating clifftop walks at nearby Flamborough Head.
The larger seaside towns of Bridlington and Scarborough are just a few minutes’ drive, with the spectacular moors beyond.
A great holiday spot for family fun.
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. 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. 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, with donkey rides available on the beach, children’s play areas, crazy golf and candy floss! Nearby, Flamborough Head boasts high cliffs with exhilarating walks and Bempton Cliffs are a haven for bird lovers. 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.
