  • "Sea Breakers Cottage was warm and cosy - even on the coldest of days."

    The owners provided tea/coffee milk and biscuits, which was a lovely touch. The cottage was clean and very well equipped. The walk down to the beach was easy (a little harder coming back up!) and the beach itself was wonderful! Easy access to the country park and cliffs too.

    Central location town and beach a few minutes walk. Cottage had everything you need and owner left milk tea and biscuits which was lovely on arrival. Parking you park on nearby streets which in November was not a problem.

  • "Our stay at Sea Breakers cottage was very enjoyable."

    The cottage is clean, comfortable, cosy and well equipped. The location is great being just a short walk to the beach, town centre and the country park which is great for walking dogs. I would definitely recommend Sea Breaker Cottage and wouldn't hesitate in returning in the future.

  • "The cottage is small but really well equipped and presented and the location is ideal for the beach and cliffs."

    Parking was tricky at the weekend but no problem as long as you don’t mind a few mins walk to the car if coming back at busy times. Filey is a great town for a break.

  • "This is a lovely place to stay and so near to everything."

    The cottage is very clean and warm . I would definitely stay here again . There is no parking at the property but plenty of street parking when I stayed in March. The only thing I would have liked is a large pouffe perhaps to stretch onto as the sofas are tiny. Would have been nice at night to relax .

  • "A delightful cottage and prepared perfectly for our visit."

    The location is great for all amenities and access down to the promenade and beach. Great area for exercising the dog off a leash five minutes walk away at the country park over the bridge. Pubs, restaurants and takeaways close to hand and the big supermarket in easy walking distance. Filey is a really nice resort, but small, so be prepared for parking issues in the town as it is a magnet for day trippers even late into the season on a pleasant day.

  • "The property was spotlessly clean and had a good level of equipment."

    The kitchen was very well equipped, however, the baking trays need to be thrown away and new ones bought. The owners had left us some milk and some biscuits which was nice. The area in which the property was situated was very quiet indeed, very peaceful. Parking wasn't a problem for us, although may well be a lot busier in peak holiday times. All in all a very nice property and both my wife and I had a nice, relaxing holiday. Many thanks.

  • "Ideal cottage to experience what Filey has to offer."

    The only negative- and it is on the description- is no dedicated parking. Whoever saying that for our duration we were able to park within 50 metres easily roadside. The cottage was both comfortable and clean with everything necessary for the stay. The bedding and beds were very good quality as were the supplied towels. Extras such as washing liquid, dishwasher tablets and washing tablets were also supplied- a real nice touch. Quiet but quirky area within 5 min easy walk to the sand and 3 minutes flat walk to the town centre. We will definitely return

    The area was very quiet and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was well stocked with everything we needed and very clean. The seaside towns of Scarborough and Bridlington not far away either, so plenty to do and see.

We also got some warm, sunny weather as well as some rain, so that was a bonus. We will definitely visit again.

  • "The cottage was exactly as was described in the holiday particulars, it was very clean and very well equipped."

    The location was perfect, not right in the town and just a few minutes walk from the town centre and the sea. It was very quiet and I slept very well as did my little Shih Tzu, we had some lovely walks along the promenade and Crescent Gardens which are both very beautiful. Plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby and a lot of them are dog friendly. The little museum opposite Ebenezer Terrace is well worth a visit and also just across the road is a little café where dogs are very welcome where they serve homemade cakes and various other meals. I did not realise until my last day that there is a country park nearby and also a beautiful St Oswalds church which dates back to the 1800s, all these places are within a few minutes walk. So as you can tell I was very pleased with my holiday and Filey is a lovely little town so I would certainly recommend it to my friends and would visit again.

The property

Sea Breakers holiday cottage is situated in the old part of Filey, on the stunning Yorkshire Coast with direct and easy access to the beach and the Lifeboat station and amusements on Cobble Landing, as well as the town centre, where there are plenty of places to eat and many interesting independent shops.

Sea Breakers is a former fisherman’s cottage constructed around 1875.

It has been refurbished to a high standard and is light and airy offering spacious accommodation with two bedrooms on the first floor; the main bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has full size bunk beds.

The modern bathroom has a shower over a bath and heated towel rail.

The kitchen is fully equipped with electric cooker, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge-freezer.

In the lounge there is a 32” TV with Freeview and a DVD player.

The cottage has gas central heating, complimentary WiFi and is dog friendly.

There is off street parking on a first-come first-served basis plus plenty of free on-street parking.

Filey was voted Beach of the Year 2018 by The Sunday Times and was awarded the top platinum award in Yorkshire in Bloom 2018 for the Parks, Gardens and Open Space Category.

With its glorious sweep of soft, golden sand, Filey beach is one of the best in the country for families; it’s so huge that, no matter how busy it gets, it’s never crowded!

The beach is the perfect place to take a walk, fly a kite, build a sandcastle, snooze in a deckchair, or maybe do a spot of birdwatching on Filey Brigg.

Early Spring may find you face to face with a snoozing seal on the beach or on the Brigg and in summer there are regular sightings of porpoises.

Once you have enjoyed your time on the beach, then you can follow it up with a trip to the much-loved Cobble Landing with its picturesque jumble of boats, kiosks and amusements, for a cuppa and a bacon buttie?

Filey is a great base for visiting the North Yorkshire Moors, Scarborough, Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay to the north, whilst to the south you can visit the lighthouse on Flamborough Head or the RSPB Reserve at Bempton Cliffs where there is some of the best bird-watching in England, or visit the attractions at Bridlington, Hornsea and Hull.

Nearby Stately homes include Burton Agnes Hall (near Bridlington), Castle Howard (where Brideshead revisited was filmed) and Sledmere House.

Close to the cottage is Filey Museum providing an insight into Filey’s historic past.

There is further information on Filey below and for more information on all the activities and attractions in the area, please visit

Sports enthusiasts will find excellent local golf courses (Filey, Ganton, Scarborough, Flamborough, Bridlington, Driffield and Malton (Scarborough and Bridlington both host Golf Weeks).

There is also scope for windsurfing, sailing, cycling and canoeing as well as great walking along the cliffs or in the surrounding countryside; both the Wolds Way and Cleveland Way end at Filey.

About the location


Scarborough 7.7 miles; Bridlington 10.5 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.
