A stunning little cottage with every home comfort.

  • 5 of 5

Sandpie cottage is a truly delightful home from home. It is so comfortable and every little thing has been thought of. Its very tastefully decorated in beach holiday style which I loved. It's location is very close to the beach path and local dog friendly pub. 40 min walk along a beautifully clean beach into Filey . And it's ideally located for trips into Scarborough Whitby and Bridlington. Bridlington south beach is heaven and you can walk for miles. We just love the North Yorkshire coast

Sandpie cottage was everything we had hoped for.. we were very impressed with the Bay itself and all the facilities on offer. Within a 10 minute walk from one of my favourite beaches, it has everything you need for a great stay. The instructions were very detailed and well thought out. An excellent holiday was had by all..

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.
