Stunning Beach House for 5 (+baby) - free use of pool/gym, free wifi, near beach

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
Lovely modern and well-equipped house on award-winning "The Bay" development.

SEA URCHINS beach house is a New England Style "Nikki" Beach House on the prestigious "The Bay" development. Built in 2014 (redecorated in May 2016), it is modern, with everything you need to make your holiday a relaxing and enjoyable experience. In the open plan area there is a large sofa, arm chair and bean bags, dining table and 5 chairs, and a fully-equipped kitchen for self-catering. Down the hall are the two bedrooms (one with a king-size bed and one with full-sized bunks and a trundle bed for the 5th guest if needed). There are 2 ensuite shower-rooms. TV/DVD/CD players in both bedrooms and the lounge. Digital radio with iphone dock. Free unlimited wifi. Travel cot and high chair provided for baby if needed.

To the outside is a drive which can accommodate 2 cars, a private deck with table and seating for up to 8, and a great communal outside lawned area for playing games (provided) or relaxing in the sun.

Sea Urchins Beach House is situated on the Bay development, an award-winning holiday park on the Yorkshire coast, with private access down to the beach. The Bay is a great base for those who enjoy sports or outdoor activities - you will have free access to the large heated indoor pool, toddler pool, sauna/steam room and gym. There's also a small playground, football pitch and boules courts. Other activities are available on site for a small charge - archery, fencing, beauty treatments/massage, table tennis, tennis, putting green, aqua-aerobics and other pool activities. The site has a fishing lake, wild meadows and ponds for nature lovers. The Bay also offer bikes for hire, and other seasonal activities (e.g. lake kayaking).

On site there is also a public house, italian cafe (seasonal), and pharmacy, and there are plans for other developments such as a restaurant/take-away near the site entrance.

From the Bay, you can walk along the beach to Filey. You are also only a short drive from Bridlington, Flamborough, Bempton Cliffs, and Scarborough. Slightly further afield are Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, York and the North Yorks Moors.

The Bay is an award-winning development, almost nearing completion, but there will still be some ongoing building work in 2016.

Top Traveller Review

About the Owner

We are Paula and Tim Foster. We live in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. We bought this holiday home in spring 2014 for both our personal use for regular holidays with our 3 school age children and as an investment property.

We stayed in an apartment on The Bay development in summer 2013 after hearing good things about it from friends who had stayed there previously. On our last day, we visited the sales office, and had a tour of their beach house show home, and the rest, they say, is history!

We bought our beach house off plan, and chose the location as it was really convenient to the resort centre (1-2 mins walk) but on a quiet cul-de-sac with lots of communal green space for the children to play out on.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house has everything you could ask for (particularly when trying to entertain kids!). Thanks to Paula for providing us with lots of information and we couldn't have felt more welcome. Will definitely stay again! Thanks.

A lovely enjoyable stay with everything you need and plenty of places to visit.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in your lovely beach house, weather was great which made it a pleasant walk to the beach. The beach house had everything you needed, my son loved finding all the toys etc it certainly kept him occupied. Pub on site is lovely and food is good, we enjoyed a bike ride to Filey and we drove to Bridlington and Scarborough so plenty to do to make this an enjoyable/relaxing holiday

Great stay at the Beach House (Sea urchins), everything you could ever want in a holiday accommodation. Great central location, close to all the amenities at the Bay as well as been central to all the best Yorkshire coastal resorts. Would definitely recommend and hope to be back soon - thank you

Grand design and fabulous accommodation & location

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous accommodation and location - this accommodation is a credit to the owners and had everything what we needed for a short break this Autumn. The Beach House was clean and furnished well with an array of extras and was extremely warm and cosy with full heating and a log burner 10/10 all round.

Lovely presented and equipped holiday home ideal for young and mature families.

  • 5 of 5

My retired parents plus 2 aunties stayed here as a 4 day mid-week break and had a brilliant time. The site has a good pub and restaurant and is ideally situated for trips to Bridlington, Filey etc.

Two bathrooms made life a lot easier as being a bit older they all spent a bit more time getting ready. They also enjoyed watching their own TV's.

There is loads of bedding, towels, games plus everything else needed for a wonderful holiday.

Overall a brilliant place to stay and my parents are booking it for a longer holiday next year.

Location

From the Owner

We were introduced to the resort of Filey around 7 years ago and we have holidayed there nearly every year since. The beach is excellent - clean, sandy and not too crowded. We have spent many happy days building sandcastles, paddling in the sea and playing beach cricket. The town of Filey has a variety of small shops and cafés, and glen gardens park is excellent for children. We like the fact you can walk easily from one end of Filey to the other, down to the harbour to watch the fishing boats and play in the arcades, or up into the country park to get some great views. We have our favourite places to visit - Sewerby Hall (with a small zoo), Bempton cliffs RSPB, Flamborough, Scarborough and Whitby (including the steam railway to Pickering). All within a short drive.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : John Paul Jones pub at 400 Metres Nearest Restaurant : Lorenzos pizzeria and restaurant at 400 Metres Nearest Beach : Filey bay at 1 Kilometres Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

10 minutes walk to the sandy beach which stretches for miles, and is suitable for swimming and body-boarding.

Distances:

3 miles drive into the seaside town of Filey where there are lots of shops including Tesco supermarket.

Just a short drive to Bempton RSPB reserve, Sewerby Hall and Zoo, Bridlington, Flamborough, and a bit further to Scarborough (8 miles).

Whitby and Pickering are around a 40-50 min drive away but great for a day trip or a ride on the renowned North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

Flamingoland is 40 mins drive. The beautiful city of York, and the port of Hull (the Deep aquarium is worthy of a visit) are around an hour.

Further Details:

Sea Urchins was new to the market in 2015 and we look forward to welcoming guests again in 2016. If you have any questions which we haven't covered in the description, please do email us.

Facilities

From the Owner

"Sea Urchins" is really close to the resort centre, so it's really easy to go for a quick dip in the pool, pick up a pizza from the cafe or go for a drink in the pub, all 2 mins walk. There are only a few beach houses on the site, and they really are special. The bifold doors open up fully to let that sea breeze in. The pitch of the roof gives a lot of ceiling height in all the rooms, which are all decorated and furnished in the New England style. The kitchen contains a large fridgefreezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer, so everything you could need. We have left a selection of beach toys, toys, jigsaws, books and DVDs for our guests to use. The house has the additional benefit of a large outside store, which means more space for you inside the house, and lots you can borrow from us whilst you are staying.
