  • "Great cottage and location."

    Parking easy at this time of year, but problematic in high season.

  • "We had a lovely week-long stay here with two young kids and a baby."

    The cottage was very well equipped. Milk in the fridge on arrival was much appreciated. The location is perfect - an easy walk to the beach and the country park down the steps to the left of the house. Even for little legs! The only slight draw back was the lack of private parking although we easily found a spot closeby (and it was October half term!).

  • "The cottage is lovely and comfortable."

    Everything you need is provided in the kitchen and the welcome pack of milk, tea, coffee and biscuits is great. The area around the cottage is very quite. Only negative is the parking. Can't even describe it as on street as the row of houses are set in a small cul de sac. So need to find a space as close as you can.

  • "This cosy little cottage is tucked away from traffic and the hustle and bustle of a seaside town and yet is only a 5 minutes walk away from the town centre and it’s amenities, the country park (for those with dogs) and the beach."

    - Ideal!

  • "More info about what is provided would have been good."

    Such as no oven gloves but you did provide doggy bowls. I left a note telling you that the bathroom window is jammed open. Other than that we really enjoyed the accommodation.

  • "A lovely, cosy cottage in the heart of Filey and within walking distance to the shops, restaurants, pub and beach."

    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. The cottage was dog friendly and our dog got lots of nice walks in the local country park which is beautiful with a small cafe and also walks along the beach. We also got some warm, sunny weather as well as some rain, so that was a bonus. We will definitely visit again.

    It also comes with a small amount of outdoor space which is lovely in good weather The only downside is that if you was to stay at busy times parking could be a problem but you can’t take that away from it We would definitely stay again and recommend to othere

  • "The cottage was lovely, comfortable and had extras eg biscuits, cleaning materials, tea and coffee etc."

    Plenty of films, games and books if weather was bad but our weather was glorious. Even a fishing net if you forgot your own. Thank you Sykes.

  • "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.

About the location

FILEY

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.
