  • "Amazing as always!"

    Sunrise is in a perfect location for the beach, well organised and always spotlessly clean. The new mattress in the main bedroom was a very welcome bonus and extremely comfy! This cottage is our perfect ‘home from home’ - Mike has done a fantastic job, cannot fault it at all, looking forward to our next visit!

    Dear Jacqueline, Thank you so much for leaving me a lovely review. I try very hard to make your visit as enjoyable as I can. I will pass on your comments about cleanliness to my cleaner. She is a real jewel who only works for me and she looks after 'Sunrise' as if it was her own! I look forward to your return next year. Best wishes for Christmas and the NewYear. Kind regards, Mike Property Owner

    We love staying in the house but the beds are so uncomfortable now that it’s impossible to get any sleep even when we bring our own mattress toppers

    Hi Elizabeth, I am so sorry that you found the beds uncomfortable. After 3 plus years of renting I blocked out 3 weeks during next February for a major refurbishment of the soft furnishings. It is clear, from your feedback that the mattresses need replacing now. I have spent the past w/e researching 'Which' best buys and I have ordered new top quality Emma mattresses to be delivered asap. I hope that this make you reassured that you will get a good night's sleep should you decide to return to 'Sunrise' in the future. Hopefully the outside private balcony will also be completed by then! Kind regards, Mike Property Owner

  • "This was our second stay at Sunrise."

    We love the place. A delightful cottage in a stunning location. The property was in an excellent condition on our arrival, and the basket of goodies, including a bottle of wine and box of chocolate biscuits, was a wonderful touch. Some slight niggles (we're being picky here): more subtle lighting (e.g. small table lamps) would be nice in the living room for watching TV in the evening, maybe some more towel rails in the bathroom, the single beds were fine but the double bed was rather uncomfortable and noisy, there was no mirror in the twin-bedded room, and the heated towel rail in the bathroom didn't appear to work. Nevertheless, we had a wonderful time in Filey and look forward to staying again at Sunrise.

    Dear Richard, I am glad that you enjoyed being At 'Sunrise' again and thank you for your constructive comments. I am travelling to Filey during next week and I will attend to some of the points you make whilst I am there. To address a couple of your points, I think that the heated towel rail is dependant on the timer being set but I will certainly check on its function. Perhaps I need to give a better explanation in the guest handbook. In terms of bed comfort it is rather subjective. Some prefer soft and others hard. The base obviously needs attention and I will deal with that, thank you for telling me. Finally, I have closed 'Sunrise' for most of next February for a manor refurb and maybe that will be the time for a bed and other replacements. Please enjoy the rest of your Summer (hopefully with better weather!) Kind regards, Mike Property Owner

    We have had a lovely week. The bungalow is perfect, The only thing to make it 100% would be some outside space. The bungalow is beautifully decorated and furnished, with everything you need. Perfectly positioned, parking a bonus. I could have stayed as my forever home!! I did want to fill in the visitors book. I hadn’t taken a pen and couldn’t find one in the bungalow. Perhaps one could be clipped to the Visitors Book.

    Hi Patrice. Thank you for your positive feedback. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday. On the question of extending the outside space; you will have noticed my intent to extend this by building a raised patio area next Sunrise. Unfortunately, completing this project during the past year has not been possible until next week!! So apologies that it hasn't happened in time for your visit. I promise that it will be there if and when you want to return. Oh, and I will supply plenty of pens!! Kind regards. Mike Property Owner

    We have now visited about 6 times and always enjoyed the excellent cottage facilities and Filey including surrounding areas. Sunrise is so convenient to the beach and a good leisurely walk on the promenade to the opposite end to the Cobble Landing which has its own features of interest. The cottage has everything you would need for a relaxing break, all you need is fine and sunny weather to make it better, which we did this year. Thank you for allowing us to stay at Sunrise once again and also for the welcome pack. We look forward to our visit in March 2024. Keith & Margaret

    Dear Keith & Margaret, Thank you once again for your generous comments about 'Sunrise'. It is always a pleasure to welcome you back and for you to love staying with us to enjoy what Filey and it's surrounding area has to offer. I am so glad that the weather 'behaved itself'! Having a bit of sunshine is always a bonus! Have a lovely Summer and please take care until you return in March. Best wishes, Mike Property Owner

  • "This property is perfectly placed along the coast in Filey and has been refurbished to a very high standard."

    The layout is perfect and extremely cosy given the well insulated walls, in terms of accessibility it ticks all the boxes for a holiday home being that it has its own designated parking space within the grounds. Couple of points to add , the double bed is a small one and could do with replacing with a king or queen size one. The Wi-Fi is extremely poor , when measured it was less than 2mb and this was a significant let down as we like most people like to use the streaming services and could not. I would strongly suggest to the owner to invest in a standalone internet connection and not piggy back off another property. This was not highlighted in the property description when we originally booked. I would love to stay again at Sunrise as it is beautifully done but would say the above 2 items need attention.

    Hi Anthony, I am glad that you regard 'Sunrise' ticks most of the boxes required of a holiday home. The two issues that you mention need an explanation. I recognise that providing a larger double bed would be desirable. Unfortunately, which ever way the bed is positioned in that bed room a larger one will not fit! It would, on the one hand, prevent the door from opening and on the other, would not enable bed access or tables on both sides. We tried our best but the slightly odd shape of the room, when we converted the property, provided us with only one option. In terms of the poor internet connection, this has been a serious frustration for me for the past 5 years! I have been in dispute with both Plusnet, Openreach and an unresponsive local authority to the point of serious exasperation. It is a long saga & too long to detail here but, if I may, I will send you an email separately that will give you a flavour of of what I have been up against. You certainly picked a cold week but I am glad that 'Sunrise' kept you warm and that you managed to get out and about to see what Filey has to offer. Kind regards, Mike Property Owner

    The location is amazing and off street parking a definite bonus. (Although it was quiet when we stayed parking wasn’t a problem). You are straight onto the beach so you are able to simply look out of the window to check when the tide has gone out enough to be able to go for a walk onto the beach! The home is well equipped with everything you would need. I cannot recommend enough.

    Dear Sarah Thank you so much for your kind words. I am so pleased when guests enjoy their holiday and that they find 'Sunrise' comfortable, warm and inviting.

The cottage has been lovingly restored and cleverly designed and we enjoyed reading all about this and it’s history in the guest book. The french doors in the bedroom were great for sitting at in the morning or evening with a drink. The cottage does get lots of admirers but you get used to this! The only thing if anything, the outside area could do with a little care and attention. There were lots of weeds and garden unkept, also a broken chair outside. Four chairs would have been better than two outside , but we did find two camping chairs in the cupboard, enabling us to all sit outside together.

We loved our holiday at Sunrise so much, that we booked for the same week next year while we were there! Highly recommended

  • "We have always taken a weeks break in Oct/Nov to relax at the end of the year."

    The minute we walked into Sunrise there was a peaceful air about the place, it was comfortable warm and peaceful with everything one would need for a relaxing break. Bracing walks along the sea front with our little dog what more could we want. A couple of things to mention it could benefit by the addition of a grab rail over the bath/shower and a small railing outside the front door. Otherwise Perfect.

    The house is so smart, practical and very stylish, we were very impressed with everything. Absolutely beautiful, breath taking views. A lovely holiday I will never forget. Lots of passer's by stopped us to ask about the house it seemed to have captured everyone's attention. We gave out information to several people.

  • "The cottage is very clean and comfortable and ideally positioned."

    We had a lovely weeks holiday. Our only complaint was that we were woken up on 2 days by the builder who was building the wall and laying paving at the side of the cottage.This meant that the gate was not attached and we could not sit out on the front safely with the dog. Once he has built the patio it will be an even better venue.Filey is a lovely town and very clean and peaceful . We would definitely return Dave and Sue

    Having private parking is such a bonus in Filey. We would have liked a table outdoors for coffee etc and really would have appreciated a plug socket near a mirror for drying hair. Otherwise it was great and we have already booked for next year.

    We couldn’t Believe it when we got there it looked small from the outside but turned out to be a tardis. We absolutely loved our stay there. I could lay in bed & watch the sunrise over the sea & watch the tide coming in & the huge beach. It was spectacular. We enjoyed reading about the history & renovation of the cottage which has been done sympathetically & to a very high standard. Loved it thank you & would love to come back.

  • "The location of SUNRISE is fabulous for many reasons especially the morning sunrise and views out to sea."

    A place to be able to walk along the beach (subject to tide times) and promenade and to be able 'switch off' and enjoy life!! The parking space provided is an excellent addition as the area in front (across the road) of the cottage is difficult when Filey is busy with visitors. Due to local authority restrictions, there is no parking allowed directly in front of the cottage. The WiFi connection (as instructed) worked well in the conservatory behind the cottage. The layout of the cottage is excellent. It has all 'white goods' and equipment. Useful to do some washing before we returned home!! The cottage was very clean upon arrival and with furnishings and decorations to a high standard. SUNRISE is very comfortable and cosy. Spacious for four people to stay. We do not have a pet but the house did not have any traces of any pets being 'on holiday' before us when we arrived. We ate in house as there is a well-known supermarket not far away to purchase our needs very well. We have already booked for later in the year when we again will look forward to our break at SUNRISE and enjoy all that it has to offer.

The property

This beautiful detached cottage rests on the sea front of Filey, boasting panoramic views over the magnificent stretch of sand that is Filey Bay, with Filey Brigg and its shallow rockpools to the north.

Equally perfect for families or couples wishing to escape from the hustle and bustle, Sunrise is an excellent choice for a holiday whatever the season.

Renovated to a precious standard, the ground floor comprises of a dining area, and a cosy lounge where you can snuggle up in front of the TV, which invites warmth to those cooler evenings.

Conveniently, there is also a family bathroom on this level, with a bath and integrated shower.

Follow the natural lighting over to the open-tread spiral staircase, where you can wander up to the delightful bedrooms.

The double bedroom takes you out onto a south-facing Juliet balcony, your own haven to unwind with a warm cup of tea and truly appreciate the unique location.

The second room hosts two single beds, just as promising for a good night's sleep, with a cloakroom dividing the formation.

Discover the small patio/garden area outside, a chance to take in the fresh air, before an exciting day out in Filey and beyond.

The town centre is a very short walk from the cottage, don’t be surprised if you see a brass band playing in the gardens on a Summer Sunday.

The town has 12 pubs and bars, the nearest, the Bon Hommes, is only a stone’s throw away at the top of the hill.

Scarborough, seven miles to the north, was Britain’s first seaside resort.

It has an attractive and still working fishing harbour and a castle that takes you back in time, as well as many typical seaside attractions that cater for all tastes.

Not far is the solitude and beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors as well as the coastal town of Whitby, famous for being the home of legendary Captain Cook and fictional home of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and the very picturesque coastal hamlet of Robin Hoods Bay.

Golfers can enjoy Filey golf club, just one mile from the cottage.

All of which just add to the appeal of this lovely little hideaway by the sea.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
