  • “It was our second visit to the brambles, we immediately felt at home, this is the first place that we wanted to visit a second time, the owner Linda went above & beyond to make our stay 100% perfect & it was.”

    As we left, my husband & I agreed that we feel we've found our forever place.

The property

Filey 1.5 miles.

Constructed mainly of chalk stone, this pretty terraced cottage dates back to the 17th century and is situated in the small, peaceful village of Muston.

It is located on the west side of the A165 coastal road, just 1.5 miles from Filey and close to both Scarborough and Bridlington.

Providing an excellent base for a couple or family, this quirky cottage has been traditionally furnished in keeping with its period charm.

In the sitting room at this holiday home near Filey are beamed ceilings, wood-panelled walls and many original works of art, along with a warming open fire, whilst to the rear is a spacious, well-equipped kitchen/diner with an island unit and Belfast sink, as well as an antique dresser and writing desk.

Also on the ground floor at your North York Moors cottage is a shower room, plus via the winding staircase in the sitting room are two bedrooms, both of which have an en-suite basin and WC.

Outside is an attractive gravelled garden, perfect for alfresco dining.

A good pub serving food and traditional ales is just a one minute walk from this Filey cottage, and the village of Muston with its famous Scarecrow Festival in the summer is a convenient centre for both the Wolds and North York Moors.

The Hull to Scarborough bus stops in the village and then from Scarborough there are buses to York, Pickering and further afield.

The historic seaside resort of Filey with its sandy beach, two promenades, brightly coloured beach huts and annual Edwardian Festival can be reached on foot via the Wolds or Grange Farm, and there are a number of places of interest within a twenty minute drive, including Sewerby, Scampston, Burton Agnes Halls, Sledmere House, Eden Camp and Flamborough Head with its high chalk cliffs, whilst closer to this Filey cottage is the RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton Cliffs, and there are many pleasant country walks in the area.

About the location


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, 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.
