This modern, mid-terrace property is situated on the The Bay holiday village, just three miles from the traditional seaside town of Filey.

With welcoming and comfortable accommodation, the cottage is ideal for families wishing to enjoy the extensive on-site facilities within a short walk of a beautiful, long sandy beach.

The bright and cheerful sitting room has a dining area to one end and French doors that open onto a small patio, a perfect sunny spot to enjoy a morning coffee before heading off for the day.

With a contemporary bathroom and well-equipped kitchen, families are well catered for.

Outside are expansive communal grounds with two lakes, barbecues and picnic areas for guests to enjoy.

On the complex is a leisure centre with a large indoor heated swimming pool, sauna and steam room, which guests have unlimited access to.

Outdoor pursuits include tennis courts, a fishing lake and putting green.

If you just want to relax, enjoy a coffee in the on-site Italian cafe/pizzeria or a meal in the pub.

A pleasant ten minute stroll brings you to the glorious Blue Flag beach, where you can walk for miles on the golden sands, perfect for children building sandcastles and paddling in the sea.

Nearby Filey can't fail to please, with its old world charm, pretty promenades and unique Coble Landing.

This traditional seaside resort is so family friendly, with its brightly painted beach huts, donkey rides and play parks.

Enjoy an invigorating clifftop walk above Filey Brigg or spend an afternoon in Filey Bird Garden and the Animal Park.

A little further along the coast lies Flamborough Head and Bempton RSPB Reserve, abounding with nesting seabirds on the chalk cliffs, including puffins in the summer months, a sight not to be missed.

With the larger resorts of Scarborough and Bridlington close by and the rolling countryside of the Wolds to explore, this well-placed holiday cottage provides the perfect base for a family holiday.

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 donkey 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.
