    The cottage was clean and tidy and very well equipped. We enjoyed our stay there and, with hindsight, wished we had booked for a longer period. Shame about the weather!

The property

Filey 3 miles.

This modern, end-terrace property is situated on The Bay holiday village, close to the traditional seaside town of Filey.

With superb on-site facilities, this cottage provides an excellent base for an enjoyable family holiday, within a short walk to a beautiful golden beach and easy access to stunning countryside.

Downstairs, there is a bright and airy open plan living area, with a well-equipped, modern kitchen, dining area and comfortable seating, with French doors opening onto a small, south-facing private patio.

Upstairs are two charming bedrooms and a family bathroom, with an additional cloakroom on the ground floor.

Tastefully furnished to a high standard, this lovely holiday home has a fresh, contemporary feel throughout.

A five minute walk brings you to a pub, cafe and pharmacist, whilst a pleasant walk through the communal grounds takes you to a long and safe sandy beach.

On the complex there are a host of outdoor activities to partake in, whether it be fishing, tennis or bike hire, or alternatively enjoy a picnic by the lake.

Guests are able to book scuba diving, archery and fencing lessons, whilst the indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room will be a big hit with everyone.

The quaint seaside resort of Filey is like a step back in time, with fine promenades, brightly painted beach huts and pony rides along the beach.

Admire the pretty ornamental gardens or stroll down to the unique coble landing for fishing vessels.

Spend a pleasant afternoon crabbing in the rock pools or take an exhilarating clifftop walk along Filey Brigg, with panoramic views along the coastline.

Nearby Bempton RSPB reserve is well worth a visit - especially in the summer months, to see the puffins, kittiwakes and gannets, whilst culture lovers will enjoy the surrounding stately homes, such as Sledmere House, Sewerby Hall and Burton Agnes Hall.

With the larger resorts of Scarborough and Bridlington nearby and some wonderful countryside to discover, this delightful property is well placed for a perfect family holiday at any time of the year.

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. 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 pony 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.
