Why self catering in Filey
Why should you stay in a holiday cottage in Filey. Well, Filey is a wonderful traditional seaside town which has always been really popular with visitors over the ages. Visitors find Filey has not been developed to the same extent as the other Yorkshire coast resorts and so retains an old world charm. You will be able to spend time on Filey beach which is Filey’s jewel in the crown. It stretches for miles and has won awards. It is safe and well sheltered by both Flamborough head and Filey Brig. RNLI lifeguards look after a central part of the beach. Most visitors take a walk along the Brig, play in its rock pools and look at the wild life. The Brig is also famous for its fishing giving access to deep water.
There is only one amusement arcade on the seafront on the busy coble landing. Filey’s lifeboats are also on the coble landing as well as shops, cafes and a pub.
Filey is also close to lots of attractions in Scarborough, Bridlington, Whitby, Flamborough and the North York Moors. The well televised Bempton RSPB reserve is close by. You can easily see Bempton cliffs from Filey sea front and our cottages.
Self catering allows you the freedom of eating as and when you wish. You have a good choice of shops in Filey including butchers, greengrocers, bakers and supermarkets and of course Sterchis the famous chocolatiers. There is also a big choice of cafes restaurants and take aways including of course several excellent Filey fish and chip shops. You can find more information on the Filey and Yorkshire coast page as well as lots of photos.
Why stay in our holiday cottages
You will enjoy the unique position of our holiday cottages. If you stay at Hope cottages you will find yourself in the middle of the seafront with easy access down onto the beach. No need to pack up a load of stuff, drive to the coast, find parking and then drag it all to the beach. You can just walk across the road and straight down the slipway and you are on the beach. The RNLI lifeguards watch this part of the beach. The cottages are in a raised position looking straight out to sea. You can sit with your coffee on the front terrace, or of course in your living room, enjoying the view over Filey Bay. As we all expect today, the holiday cottages are equipped to modern standards including central heating, double glazing, real flame fire, washer/dryer, dishwasher, fibre broadband etc etc . For more details go to the cottages page.
You can park your car on the seafront and it can stay there all week for free. A short walk up Cargate Hill takes you to you all the shops you might need. Some of our guests just shop as and when they need. We are all so used to getting in our car when we want to buy something or of course ordering on line. It is so refreshing when you have all the shops you might need within walking distance. As Filey is not a large town many of the big chains have not arrived allowing the friendly local businesses to thrive.
