Lovely and homely. Immaculate. Very efficient heating which was great in chilly November. Great layout. Well equipped. Loved it that there wasn't notices everywhere like there normally are in holiday lets! We felt relaxed and at home. Really convenient for beach and Filey town. Swimming pool was a great perk and the kids loved it. We had a really lovely time :)..thank you for sharing it with us

Fabulous break and wonderful accommodation

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, we were so impressed with Sandpie cottage! It had absolutely everything we needed for a fantastic family weekend with two girls 10 & 8 and our Labrador puppy. The cottage was very spacious and well laid out with everything you could possibly need. Only thing to point out is that the garden isn't secure but more of a communal space. We are very much looking forward to booking again for next year !

Excellent location and facilities

  • 5 of 5

The property's presentation was excellent. It catered well for families, providing games, fishing net, buckets and spades as well as having a high standard of cleanliness and decor.

We were fortunate enough to have good weather and it was just a few minutes to the long sandy beach, with few people on it.

Provisions included washing machine, dishwasher and cleaning materials. The beds were comfortable and the sitting area was more than adequate for 4 people.

I would have. I hesitation in recommending this property to friends.

We stayed in August 2016

Lovely cottage with everything needed for a relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weekend in July. The cottage is beautifully decorated and was packed with everything we needed for a lovely stay.

The beach is a 10 minute stroll and the meadows are a 2 minute stroll away.

Absolutely fantastic location, beautiful cottage - we will be back!

From the Owner

We bought the property as we fell in love with the area, the beach, untouched charm of Filey and the amenities on site

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Leeds Bradford at 71 Miles Nearest Barpub : The John Paul Jones at 200 Metres Nearest Ferry : Hull at 40 Miles Nearest Golf : Filey Golf Club at 2 Miles Nearest Train : Filey at 2 Miles Nearest Motorway : A64 at 12 Miles Nearest Restaurant : The John Paul Jones and an Italian Cafe at 200 Metres Nearest Beach : Filey at 500 Metres Car: necessary

Award winning sandy beaches and Cliff top walks, nearby stately homes and lots of beautiful villages. Filey is a mear 30-40 minute stroll on the beach where lots of shops and fish and chips can be had in this unspoilt village on the coast. Further afield: lively seaside resorts nearby such as Scarborough and Bridlington are within 15 minutes drive, Bempton cliffs RSPB is only a 5-10 minute drive away and Flamborough Head also within 15 minutes.

Still further north is Whitby, approx a 45 minute drive away and the Yorkshire Moor's where Steam trains and more picturesque villages inland can be visited. York is a 45 minute drive away, as is Dalby Forrest, a must for Mountain Bikers and a 'go ape' for the more adventurous out there.

Onsite pool, steam and sauna room, within the gym complex, are a two minute walk from the house and are all free for guests staying at the cottage. There are also tennis courts available to use. There are activities such as archery, air rifle shooting, aqua gliding available which can be booked at the gym complex and carry a fee. For the ladies there is a beauty therapies and treatment room again this can be booked an paid for when you are on site. Lots to do from fishing to walking.
