    We would definately recommend.

  • "A great location for exploring the nearby coastal towns/villages of Bridlington, Filey and Scarborough plus taking the dog for long walks on the beach at low tide (only a 10 minute walk way from the cottage)."

    A clean and cosy property with lovely décor throughout. A small shop is on site for essentials but we just popped up to Tesco in Filey. The only maintenance issue was the shower door in the en-suite bathroom which kept falling off the rails.

  • "The property was well laid out, comfortable and nicely furnished."

    Close to the pub, pool and park, beach, shop etc. We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed our stay. However, we were woken at night and in the early hours by doors banging either other apartments or the main entrance, mostly by dog owners. There was no outdoor space for the children so we were all either in or out of the appartment. I must also mention the John Paul as being the worst pub I've ever been in. The length of time we had to wait for food was up to 90 minutes, the children weren't able to wait patiently, on the third occasion we waited patiently and eventually asked if food was coming only to be told the order hadn't been placed. When the food did arrive there was human hair in the salad and the risotto was more like balls of clotted cream. It would have made a good sitcom so many people leaving without saying or getting full refunds on their food. So why didn't we go elsewhere? Because we couldn't get a table they were all closed due to staff shortages of fully booked.

    I was so surprised!! The apartment felts so luxurious with all the home comforts (bar a hairdryer) and my husband loved the bedding so much in the master he wants some for home! Im not very tech savvy so trying to operate a super microwave was difficult without instructions but got there in the end. The owner rang with incredibly detailed instructions and advice and i couldnt recommend them highly enough. We didnt have chance to use the leisure centre or other activities but we did use the pub and rhe food was very nice and reasonable and the kids entertainment on Saturday night was great. The beach is spotless. We hope so come back for a longer stay next time. Just a note that the key safe is quite tough to open so persevering is key. What a fantastic place!

    The swimming facilities etc were excellent and we enjoyed a well cooked meal at the pub. Loads to do in the local area for all the family.

The one downside was that although the bathrooms and bedrooms were spotless the kitchen wasn't as clean as it could have been. Oven gloves/ drainer needed replacing and we were only given 1 tea towel for the week. Other than this we would definitely recommend and would stay again.

About the location

FILEY

  • 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.
