    “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at STAKS Cottage and we definitely plan to return, it was like a home from home and we loved the location.”

    A brilliant little site with some lovely facilities, we thought the set up was great. If you like getting out and walking, then this is just the base for you. We went to the beach every day, sometimes twice a day and enjoyed exploring the local area. The swimming pool was a plus, as was the cafe and arcade.

The cottage

Filey 3 miles.

This lovely, 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 friends and families wishing to enjoy a family holiday.

There is just a short walk to the beautiful golden beach and easy access to fabulous countryside.

Downstairs in this lovely cottage there is a modern, bright open plan living area which has a well-equipped kitchen with dining area and comfortable seating with French doors opening onto a private patio.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one double with a TV and one twin bedroom, together with a family bathroom, and a ground floor cloakroom completes the accommodation.

Outside there is a private patio with furniture where you can relax with a refreshing drink whilst planning your activities for the rest of your holiday.

On the complex there are lots of outdoor activities to partake in, whether it be fishing, tennis, cycling or alternatively why not take a picnic to the lake?

Guests are able to book a number of activities including scuba diving, fencing and archery lessons, whilst also benefiting from free use of the indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room, sure to be a big hit with everyone.

Just a five minute walk from the cottage brings you to a café and pub, and a lovely walk through the communal grounds takes you to a long and safe sandy beach.

The quaint seaside resort of Filey is only a short drive away and has fine promenades, brightly painted beach huts and pony rides along the beach.

You can stroll through the ornamental gardens or down the cobble landing where the fishing vessels are moored.

Why not spend an 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 Swerby Hall, Sledmere House and Burton Agnes Hall.

Just a little further afield are the larger resorts of Scarborough and Bridlington, with some wonderful countryside to discover.

This delightful property is ideal for a 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, 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, with donkey rides available on the beach, children’s play areas, 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.
