Beautiful Grade 2 Listed Town House With Sea Views - sleeps 14 in 8 bedrooms

Overview

Property

Updated: 29-Nov-2016
House in Filey, Yorkshire, England - 4 Minutes Walk To Golden Sandy Beach Yet Only 2 Minutes Walk To Town.

Built in 1830, this grade 2 listed house retains all of it's charm, with a wealth of period features, having been sensitively restored and brought into the 21st century. It's equipped to a high standard to ensure a real home from home feeling, with comfy beds with white cotton bed linen and towels, board games and toys, a play station and everything you might need for cooking a special meal, from a garlic press to gigantic saucepans. Filey is a hidden gem of a resort, with a 4 mile gently shelving sandy beach which children adore, a golf course, lawn tennis club and sailing club, all of which accept holiday makers. The next bay, Cayton Bay, has a surf school. Walking is fantastic with both the Cleveland Way and Wolds way starting or ending in Filey. There's a small station with trains to York, or you can drive in about an hour and it's well worth a visit. The North Yorkshire Moors steam trains run from Pickering, where you can stop off at Goathland, better known as Aidensfield in Heartbeat, or head through to Whitby and see the delights of the northern end of the moors. Filey is the home of the Yorkshire Cobble, the oldest style of fishing boat, based on Viking longboats, and they are still used today by some of the towns fishermen. The house is warm and cosy in the winter, and you feel amazing after a long walk on the beach but it's cool and welcoming after a hot day lazing in the summer sunshine. It's a very spacious house, great for sharing with friends or family, allowing room to be separate and room to be together. We rarely accept pets and ask guests not to smoke in the house.

About the Owner

We bought Savona to use as a "home from home" weekend get away, to help our daughter who suffered badly with asthma and allergies. The sea air helps her to breathe easily and she hardly needs to use her inhalers when we're in Filey. We rarely allow pets at the house to help ensure it's as low allergy as possible and now that she's 17 she's so much better. We still all really enjoy staying at Savona but now go with a house full of teenagers! It's lovely to read the guest book and see that the house is bringing pleasure to so many other families and that so many birthdays, anniversaries and special family reunions are hosted at the house.

Wonderful weekend with friends at Savona

  • 5 of 5

We visited Savona as a group of 3 families, with 6 children between us. The layout of the house was perfect for us, with a whole floor per family, and plenty of space to be all together as well. The house was spotlessly clean and we all agreed it was one of the most well equipped self catering houses we'd stayed in. The location within Filey is excellent, we didn't use our cars all weekend. Even with small children, there is plenty to do within a short walk of Savona. The owner Melanie made the booking process very straight forward, and answered any questions very promptly. All together, a wonderful weekend and we can't wait to visit again!

AMAZING PROPERTY!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had three nights in Savona for a family celebration. The house is amazing. There is nothing negative I can say about the whole experience. The house is clean and extremely well equipped, the beds are comfy, the towels are fluffy and soft. There is ample crockery and cutlery for more than 14 people, so you don't have to keep washing up after each meal. The children (and adults) had great fun playing hide and seek, there are so many places to hide and going up and down the stairs did keep us all fit! Everything was perfect!

Although I was only in touch with the owners by e-mail, Melanie was very friendly in her communications and it felt like I already knew her.

Filey itself is a lovely place and Savona is so close to everything that we didn't need to use the cars at all. We will definitely be coming back again.

If anyone is looking for a house to accommodate a large party, I don't think you would find anything better and I heartily recommend Savona.

excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday in Savona - we liked it so much last year we booked again for this year and expect to do the same again for next year. A lovely warm spacious house - perfect for a group of writers as there's plenty of room to get away to your own wee corner or join the group. We could have a quiet writing room downstairs and then the kitchen and sitting room upstairs were ideal for those who wanted to chat. Bedrooms are excellent - we were particularly pleased that there are now 2 single rooms as well and the twins and doubles - so it can accommodate a very mixed party - great bathrooms and kitchen - lovely linen and towels and the lovely extra touch of little soaps, shower gel and shampoos and a welcome basket with some chocolate, tea, coffee etc - nice touch. All communications have been very friendly and helpful. I don't know what else to say except i couldn't recommend it strongly enough - Filey is my favourite town along this stretch of coast - just lovely - 'a real tonic' as one of our group put it.

Savona, Filey

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect spot for a break of any kind. The house is immaculate and spread over many floors. Some of the rooms have views of the sea and Filey Brigg.

The town itself was very quiet, but well served by pubs, shops and places to eat. It also gives that impression that everything is right with the world. No fuss at all.

We did no car journeys after we arrived, there is 5 miles of beach at filey, and scarborough is just 10 miles up the Cleveland Way, if you like to walk. Bit muddy at this time of year, but the views were fantastic. You can hire bikes locally, and the roads are quiet enough.

Overall I would have no hesitation in recommending Savona, it is a lovely house, and we will definitely return.

AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say about this property? Believe me a lot, so this could turn into a long review.

This property is amazing. It is in a great location very close to everything, the town, the beach, glen gardens etc.... It has been renovated to a very high standard whilst keeping period features mixing old with new. Everything has been very well thought out. The house is massive and on many different levels but a lot of thought has gone into providing bathrooms and toilets on each level.

The kitchen is very well equipped with lots of crockery, huge fridge freezer, slow cooker the list is endless. Even down to two kettles so you can all have a hot drink at the same time without having to fill up again.

The bedrooms are very spacious with very comfortable beds. It was lovely to go and have bedding and towels provided. The en suites and bathrooms were gorgeous and spotlessly clean. We all pretty much got ready at the same time each morning and there was never a pressure drop in the showers and always beautifully hot. (You literally didn't want to get out of the basement one)

I could go on and on about this place in a very positive way but I cannot fault it in any way. The owners are very helpful and lovely to talk to as are the house keepers that showed us round.

Savona is gorgeous with attention to detail with lots of very nice treats. It is a credit to the owners. We are booking again for next year as we all loved it so much.

Thank you so much.

All in Fine Fettle in Filey!!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 14 of us had weekend away at Savona at the end of January 2016. We have a weekend away every year at this time to enjoy blustery cliff top walks and the calm atmosphere that pervades our local East Coast resorts in the winter months. We were certainly not disappointed this year by either the resort of by the accommodation. In a world of ever increasing stress and tension, out of season, Filey is an oasis of sanity and peace! And savona is a great place to stay; not just because of the outstanding cleanliness and facilities within the place, but also because, set in a quiet side street, only 5 mins from the town centre and the beach, it is ideally positioned. We all agreed that we would recommend Savona to anyone who enjoys what we consider are these better things in life. In my experience, accommodation of this quality is hard to come by and such convenience and opulence can rarely be found in one spot!

Like General Patton; we will return!!!

Location

From the Owner

Filey is the nearest seaside town to drive to from our house and, unlike its near neighbours of Scarborough and Bridlington, is really quiet and unspoilt. It's the kind of town where I'm happy to let my children wander around the shops and go to the park. When we bought Savona we found out that it belonged to the brother of my uncle, so that was a huge coincidence!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Leeds Bradford at 120 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : at 0.1 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Hull at 63 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Filey at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Train : Filey at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Filey at 0.1 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Filey at 0.25 Kilometres

Coast/Beach:

Only a 4 minute walk to the 4 mile, clean, safe, golden sandy beach of Filey bay, bounded to the south by Flamborough Head and Bempton Cliffs (RSPB reserve) and to the north by Filey Brigg. Divers can enjoy the wreck of the Bonhomme Richard, sunk in 1779, which has recently won Heritage Lottery funding. Sailing is popular in the bay and paragliders fly off the Brigg, whilst surfers ride the waves at neighbouring Cayton Bay. There's plenty to do or you can just relax on the beach and watch.

Travel:

It's easiest to come to Filey by car or train. Once at the house a car is not necessary for shopping, restaurants, the beach or other local facilities. However there's a lot of places further a field to explore so we would recommend a car.

The nearest airports are Durham Tees Valley (68 miles), Leeds Bradford (70 miles), Newcastle (105 miles) and Manchester (127 miles). The nearest port is Hull (45 miles) with sailings to Rotterdam and Zeebrugger.

Distances:

Located 2 minutes walk to the centre of Filey (bakery, restaurants etc) and about 15 minutes drive to N Yorks Moors, with its stone built villages and pretty pubs, including Goathland, (Aidensfield in Heartbeat), Staithes (Old Jack's Boat, CBeebies and Captain James Cook's home), gorgeous Runswick Bay, Robin Hoods Bay (coast to coast walk), Whitby\Ravenscar (Bram Stoker's Dracula), Pickering's North Yorkshire Moors Railway (Hogwart's Express), or slightly further afield, Thirsk (James Herriott).

Further Details:

Whilst further afield, there are lots of Michelin guide restaurants to try. Here's just a few: Fox & Hounds at Goldsborough, Anvil Inn at Sawdon, La Lanterna, Jeremy's or Green Room in Scarborough, in Whitby\Sands End Estbek House (or Magpie for traditional fish & chips), Cliffemount at Runswick Bay, in York - The Star Inn the City, in Thirsk area Swan at Oldstead(1 Michelin star) or Star at Harome (1 Michelin star), in Pickering the White Swan.

Additional pricing information

Fees No additional mandatory fees

Booking Notes:
Telephone or email your preferred dates. I will then send a booking form which should be returned within 10 days with a 25% deposit, (either bank transfer, cheque or credit card). The balance is payable 8 weeks before the start of the holiday. On receipt of full payment, access details and housekeeper contact details are supplied.

Changeover Day:
Fridays are the usual changeover day for either weekend breaks or full week holidays, and Mondays for mid week breaks. Standard arrival time is 4pm and departure is 10am.

Notes on prices:
We also advertise on Cottages For You website (property ref 19757). We aim to be substantially cheaper on Owners Direct than C4Y, although the saving during peak summer weeks is minimal as I have to pay a penalty for every owner booking I take. At other times of the year you can expect to save around 20% or more over Cottages For You price for the same holiday.
As a guide our 3 night weekend break is about 70% of the full week price. Mid week breaks are great value, in low season working out at £8.03 per person per night, based on full occupancy of 14 guests - a great deal for the newly retired and those not tied to school holidays.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

Facilities

From the Owner

When we stay, our children bring friends and they can have their own space, watching what they want on tv, playing music or just chilling out without disturbing us and our friends. There's plenty to keep them occupied, from the usual games and barbecues on the beach, to surfing lessons or body boarding. Being 17 and 15 they love the independence of walking to the local Italian restaurant or shops without parents and we're happy to let them. We enjoy a walk on the beach followed by a huge brunch with bacon and eggs, then reading the Sunday papers. Bliss! Filey Brigg is another family favourite, with masses of rock pooling and crashing waves over the rocks. It's a photographer's heaven. Be sure to refer to the tide tables first though, as you must allow time to walk back!

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: The house has a great many stairs and is therefore not ideal for the elderly or disabled. There is unrestricted parking on the street in front of the house plus parking for 1 car at the back of the house. Outside: The house has a very small gravelled garden in front and a paved area behind but essentially outside space is very restricted, however the band stand park is about 100 yards away with many benches and places to sit. Glen Gardens and the beach are both only 4 minutes walk away and so there's an abundance of places to enjoy sitting outside, barbecuing or picnicking. There are 2 swimming pools in Filey open to the public and a large open air paddling pool beside the sea for smaller children. The "Country Park" above Filey Brigg is a nice walk away or you can jump of the "Filey Hopper" if you prefer. Utility Room: Washing machine and tumble drier, sink and drainer, airer, iron and ironing board. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: White cotton bedding and towels are included in the price and are changed weekly. Beach towels are not supplied. Mid week linen changes or cleaning can be arranged, but a further charge will be levied. Other: The dining room is something special, comfortably seating 14 around a large table, perfect for family celebration meals. A huge Victorian oil lamp hangs above the table (not to be used due to risk of fire) and a sense of informal grandeur prevails!
