About Ian

We bought Briar cottage in 2014 as we both love the North Yorkshire coast, having many holidays here over the years. Mark currently lives in South Yorkshire and Ian in County Durham. We spend as much time as we can here, but are very happy to share it.

Ian purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Ian chose Gristhorpe

We chose Briar cottage Filey because we wanted a holiday home near to the sea. It is only a few minutes from the local resorts. It also gives us the cosiness of a country cottage within a village setting.

What makes this cottage unique

Briar cottage is a character property by the sea, with a modern rustic interior and cottage garden.

Tastefully decorated cottage, well equipped kitchen, comfy lounge. The photos do it justice. Pretty village with pub, conveniently placed to explore the Yorkshire coast and Wolds.

Friendly and helpful owners.

Cosy Christmas Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was cosy, comfy and clean. The owners had put Christmas decorations up which we appreciated, along with the bottle of Champagne and Belgian chocolate truffles. Communication pre visit with the owners was good. We would stay again and recommend it.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Briar Cottage which was clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished. The cottage is in a peaceful location and makes an ideal base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast. We had some fab days on the beach at Cayton Bay.

Would highly recommend.

lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

this is our second stay in this cottage and it was again lovely. everything is very clean and well maintained. plenty of cutlery and glasses etc. the village is very nice and the local pubs are excellent. the only criticism is the owners allow pets, if this wasn't the case then the cottage would be fabulous.
