  • "Really enjoyed our stay at Eric House, we had one little blip which was rectified straight away."

    So much room and so comfortable. loved watching the birds feeding along with two cheeky squirrels who came every day. Unfortunately the pub was closed until 27th March so couldn't have a pint and a meal without driving. We had a meal delivered from Filey through Just Eat and it was excellent. We would definitely use Eric House again and recommend it to others.

    Glad that you enjoyed your stay and the birds and squirrels in the garden. Shame that the pub was closed for their holidays but glad you were able to get food delivered. Best wishes Steve and Dawn Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location to explore North and East Yorkshire!"

    A home from home with everything you need and more for your stay. Comfortable beds made for a great night's sleep and the off road parking was an added bonus! Fantastic wealth of information in the welcome book and wicker drawers full of leaflets! The Ship Inn recommendation was spot on - amazing food in large quantities and friendly staff who treated us no differently to the locals! The fire wood and tea/coffee supplies were just what we needed after a long drive. Would definitely recommend - this place was spotlessly clean and we would definitely stay here again! Thanks for a lovely stay!

    Thank you for your great feedback. We am so glad it was spotlessly clean as during January, it definitely wasn't, as we replaced the kitchen and decorated the snug. We shall pass on your comments to the pub too. Hoping we can welcome you back in the future. Best wishes Steve and Dawn Property Owner

  • "Eric House is a large detached house in the lovely village of Muston."

    The back of the house overlooks Muston Hall but the garden is well screened off for privacy. Although it is on the side of the fairly busy road, once inside you don’t notice it. The decor is rather dated but what it lacks in style it makes up for in comfort. Someone clearly takes pride with the cleaning and on the whole the house is well kitted out with very comfortable beds. Good pub across the Road and very close proximity to Filey. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as felt right at home. Would definately stay again. No real negatives, as suggestions, maybe a few more drinking glasses in various sizes and possibly a reading lamp in the snug!

    We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the positive feedback. During our refurbishment during January, we took on board your suggestions and have provided some more glasses and a reading lamp in the snug. best wishes Steve and Dawn Property Owner

  • "Thank you Steve and Dawn for another wonderful stay at Eric House."

    We enjoyed the house even more this time as we stayed in each evening after our trips out during the day when the weather was kind. The location of the house is brilliant for visiting both the coastal resorts and inland villages.You have thought of everything to provide a home from home holiday and the decor/equipment and maintenance is first class. The welcome gift was very much appreciated and delicious thank you. Of all the holiday accommodation we have stayed in over the years, Eric House is the best and we are looking forward to visiting again in 2024. Best wishes, Stuart, Sue and Philip.

    Hi all, We are so pleased that you had another fantastic stay at Eric House and that we have maintained our standards since your last visit. We look forward to welcoming you back during 2024. You are most welcome. Best wishes Steve and Dawn Property Owner

    Extremely well equipped and very clean. Nice welcome back gift and card left for us. Across the road from a charming pub where the locals and hosts made us feel very welcome. This house lacked nothing and we will definitely be back next year! Weather slightly disappointing after the heatwave a couple of weeks earlier, but didn't stop us walking along the beach every day. So relaxing, I wish we could live here! Thank you.

    Eric House provided EVERYTHING that we needed. It was very comfortable, clean and well-appointed in all areas.....from kitchen/diner through outdoor seating, indoor lounge/TV room, library room and the three roomy bedrooms. Cannot recommend highly enough. We had a superb week.

    Late reply, but thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you found Eric House comfortable and clean, and managed to catch up with friends during your stay. Perhaps you need to catch up again sooner so we may see you again. ;) Kind regards Steve and Dawn Property Owner

  • "The house is an excellent base for exploring this part of Yorkshire, very well-equipped, good temperature control (but see below), clean and comfortable."

    Good-sized kitchen/dining area and spacious lounge, while the snug is a nice bonus. Bedrooms decent-size with comfy beds. Bathrooms also roomy. There is good access to Filey and/or Scarborough for things like shopping and entertainments. We arrived in a heatwave, so the aircon was extremely welcome, but we later proved that having multiple sources of heating/hot water was also a good idea when the immersion failed. We were able to turn on the boiler instead. Thanks to Steve (owner) for his help in sorting this out. A couple of small points: for young children (i) a stairgate would be handy, and (ii) the single bed's design is potentially hazardous for a child--travel cot (available) would be a better choice. All in all, a nice house that worked well for 4 adults a 3-yr old and a baby. Many thanks!

  • "Although brief, we greatly enjoyed our stay at Eric House."

    Everywhere was spotless and the provision of milk and tea/coffee facilities by the owners was much appreciated. It's a lovely place and the interest provided at the back by the birds and squirrel was most entertaining. The house itself has an excellent layout across the rooms and it is in very good condition. Our only concern was the road outside which carries so much traffic and perhaps your website should mention that the house is located next to a very busy road. We'd certainly recommend Sykes for bookings and we feel that Eric House is a lovely place to stay!!

  • "Yet another winner from Sykes Cottages."

    If I could have marked Eric House with an 11, I would have done !. It is a cozy, comfy detached house, outside Filey. It is walkable to the beach via a well established hedgerow walk in about 45 minutes, but we learned to park up in a layby opposite the windmill ( just by Filey's 30 MPH sign) that saved us 20 minutes each day. Filey is old fashioned, and has many green spaces and park benches, and has an air of Georgian gentility. Our excursions were to Pickering ( steam train ), visits to Scarborough, where we found free parking for three hours by the harbour, and many steps and walkways up the hill to St Mary's church, where Anne Bronte's grave can be found ( street parking for two hours there ) A trip to Bridlington turned out to be a bit of a let down, though. Back to the house - the parking area was big enough to drive in, turn around and drive out, but I will say the road was busier than I expected. I especially liked the chimes of the church bell throughout the night, and the dawn chorus from the rookery in a nearby copse. Country sounds that add to a country cottage holiday. Only thing missing was a wall clock in the lounge. Have to mention a nearby pub called The Piebald , famous from ' Four in a Bed' some years ago. Famous for the 52 types of pie available. Did not make it this trip, so I will drool over that menu until next time !

    I could have moved in and lived here! Everywhere was spotlessly clean, all the appliances worked, and there was enough crockery, utensils and cook ware for whatever you wanted to do. The little garden was a delight and we saw more goldfinches in one day than I have seen in the rest of my life! Sat in the conservatory watching them every evening while I waited for dinner to cook. Owner was friendly and helpful. We texted and he always replied quickly. Nice courtyard for parking. What more can I say? I would go back tomorrow!

    The property is beautifully presented throughout and everything we could have wished for was provided. We were so lucky to have brilliant weather which allowed us to sit outside and watch the different types of birds coming to feed. All 3 of us were sad to leave and we are hoping to return later this year if availability allows. Thank you so much to the owners of Eric House for making us feel so welcome and comfortable.

    We are very pleased that you had a wonderful stay, and managed the good weather as a plus. There has always been a fantastic selection of garden birds and I love to watch them too.

  • "Eric House was easy to find and was warm and welcoming when we arrived."

    Heating easy to adjust. We had a very comfortable short stay, as there were on 3 of us. Easy access to Filey and the coast. A shame that we did not have time to try out the local pub just across the road - maybe next time. Our only criticism is the lack of crockery and the size of the cups/mugs. There are only 2 larger mugs and the rest are small. We ended up buying another from a charity shop. There is a dishwasher and we did manage, but if there had been 5 adults, the lack of crockery means you would need to wash up after every meal. Extra plates etc would make a massive difference to the whole experience.

    Thank you for your feedback, Pauline. We are glad that you had a good stay and found the house warm and welcoming. We have put in some larger mugs and additional crockery as you have suggested. kind regards Dawn and Steve Property Owner

The property

Resting in the rural village of Muston near Filey in North Yorkshire, this traditional, detached holiday home, Eric House, enjoys a crackling wood burning stove, which you can snuggle up besides with a hot chocolate and just a short drive away from a sandy beach; This home is ideal for a family of five looking for a blend of country and coast.

Be greeted by a driveway where you can park up and step inside to discover the farm-style kitchen/diner, you can rustle up hearty meals courtesy of the oven and hob.

When dinner is served, settle down at the dining table or if the weather is warm why not venture outside into the garden to dine alfresco?

As the sky grows dark, retire inside and unwind on the sofa in the sitting room and flick through the Smart TV for a film night in and when eyes grow heavy, climb upstairs and indulge in a soothing soak in the bathroom or rinse your worries away in the overhead shower.

Choose between three adorned bedrooms to rest your head, with a twin (zip/link king size on request), a double and a single bedroom.

Awaken with a cup of tea in the snug room and open up a newspaper or a compelling novel before joining your loved ones at the dining table for breakfast.

Ideally situated for exploring the Yorkshire Coast and Yorkshire Wolds, scenic drives will lead you to a number of great locations.

The seaside resort of Filey, where you can soak in the coastal sights from Filey Beach, tee up at an expansive golf course, throw a blanket down to enjoy a picnic at Crescent Gardens or visit the animals at Filey Bird Garden and Animal Park.

Head to the traditional seaside town of Scarborough, where you can stroll along the promenade with fresh fish and chips, marvel at marine creatures at SEA LIFE, or if that's not for you, unveil the past at Rotunda Museum or Scarborough Castle.

Dalby Forest and Visitor Centre are great for walking and cycling and the ability to Go Ape in the treeline, and go to The North Yorkshire Moors Railway to experience life on board a steam train from various points between Pickering and Whitby.

Find Boggle Hole, only a mile along the beach from the picturesque village of Robin Hood’s Bay nestled right on the high water line and Whitby, the birthplace of Dracula, across the North Yorkshire Moors.

RSPB Bempton Cliffs is only a 10 mile drive from the door, with the impressive headland and lighthouses at Flamborough being only a few miles further along the Heritage Coast Walk.

Sewerby Hall and Gardens, Burton Agnes Hall and Sledmere House are just over the county border into East Riding of Yorkshire as are seaside town of Bridlington, the market town of Driffield and the open countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds.

If walking is your preferred mode of travel, directly from the village, join the Wold’s Way or Centenary Way or complete circular walks to Gristhorpe, Hunmanby, Filey or Speeton, where you can marvel at the whole of Filey Bay from the Brigg to the white cliffs of Bempton.

For a much-needed escape to the North and East Yorkshire coastline, the Yorkshire Wolds and Moors, whisk your loved ones to Eric House.

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.
