Summary:

“We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and did everything we wanted to do and came back to a lovely homely property”

We stayed in a spacious and very clean dormer bungalow. We were particularly impressed by the standard of workmanship on the fabric of the building - woodwork, general fittings etc. We had plenty of crockery and cutlery - not always so in self-catering properties - and we are experts!

The beds were comfy - though the master bed was a little imposing!, and linen was spotless. The bathrooms were quite chic with plenty of space to put our things, and plenty of bath towels.

The owners left a very nice welcome pack and they themselves were very friendly and helpful. The property was not too far from the beach or town and yet was in a quiet backwater.

Specifically Recommend:

The property was very well equipped with plenty of crockery and cutlery. two very nice bathrooms with plenty of shelf space and cupboard space.

Be Aware:

The landing at the top of the stairs is perhaps just a little small and has to be crossed to access the bathroom from the master bedroom.

Local Gems:

The ’Scarborough fair Collections’ at the Flower of May caravan park just over a mile north of Filey was a fabulous discovery for an afternoon out with family.

En Route:

We stopped over for an hour or so at the bustling market town of Beverley.

Summary:

“Perfect !!”

No 6 Filey was exactly as it said it was in the advert and it turned out to be the best week away in a very long time. You felt relaxed from the minute you parked your car.

The owner came round and welcomed us, plus some wine, crisps and chocolates ! He also took time out of his schedule and took my husband around the town of Filey to show the local spots (and also the stay away places!).

Everything we needed was there. We would definitely go there again.

Specifically Recommend:

The Buccaneer - very local and fantastic food and very reasonable prices.

Summary:

“We would highly recommend this holiday accommodation to anybody looking for even a short getaway in this area as this property is certainly more than you expect when you arrive.

A real gem in itself. ”

No 6 is a fantastic place for a getaway.

Upon arrival we were greeted by one of the owners, Robert, who allowed us to settle in to the house before coming to check we were all ok with everything. The owners have clearly got a keen eye for detail and definitely know how to look after guests.

The house itself is fantastic, very clean and well presented with lovely wooden floors, neutral decor, spacious bedrooms with lovely high quality bedding.

The kitchen is well stocked with pretty much everything you could think of needing, there were even cloths and towels which we didn’t expect. The cooker-oven is great - we cooked our Christmas dinner on it and it worked a treat. We also found use for the washing machine which really came in handy with our 7 month old son.

There is a large spacious yard out the back for parking which was great as we have small children, this space would be nice in the summer to sit out and have a barbeque etc.

Overall our holiday was fantastic and we feel it was largely down the the quality of this lovely holiday home.

Specifically Recommend:

Within easy reach of Filey town centre and the beach

Lovely quiet property away from the main road and not many people walking past (as you get with sea front properties)

Warm and welcoming owners

A great base for other North Yorkshire coastal towns (Flamborough, Bridlington, Scarborough Etc)

If you are considering staying in the property I would definitely recommend it, and despite being a 10 minute walk from Filey Centre there is a local bus runs from right outside and also a service bus that picks up from the main road less than a minutes walk away.

Local Gems:

Filey Town Centre - lovely little shops

Filey Beach nice and clean and often quiet.

Summary:

“Perfect holiday accommodation”

No 6 Grange Avenue is a perfect holiday base - beautiful, homely accommodation with very welcoming owners, Helen and Robert.

The house is very accessible for young and old, and Helen and Robert have thought about everything. A quiet residential location with very easy level access to Filey town centre, then down to the beach.

The semi-detached, professionally refurbished house has two bathrooms and can happily accommodate two small families sharing. There is ample secure parking and car port and even bicycles to use!

Specifically Recommend:

A choice of ground floor or first floor bedrooms for those who find stairs a challenge.

Local Gems:

The beach - every aspect of it. The Pines Coffee House on Hope Street, for fresh, traditional home cooked food and fantastic friendly service.

“Three go walkabout in Filey - A good time was had by all!”

The house is really lovely. We all agreed we could live here! Robert and Helen are very welcoming and helpful and even offered us a lift into town if needed (we don’t drive). The accommodation is warm, cosy and well equipped. Filey is a really lovely place - timeless and friendly. We also used the Shoreline Suncruiser buses to and from Scarborough - GBP 4 return, or free with a bus pass. The back of the house has an enormous yard which is a real suntrap. All in all a perfect holiday - can’t wait to come back!!

We found the accommodation clean, tidy, well presented and maintained. It had everything you could need when staying away and self-catering.

To provide the facilities for our son was a great help and we appreciate that you had these available at our request.

The garden was great and we had the pleasure of seeing a family of Robins, including at least three babies. Location was also a plus, right near the centre of Filey within walking distance.

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place to others.

We really enjoyed staying at No. 6 in Filey. The property was clean, modern and well-equipped. We appreciated the good quality towels and plenty of hot water.

Robert and Helen were very helpful and friendly owners - nothing seemed too much trouble. We would definitely consider staying there again.

Specifically Recommend:

Clean, modern, well-equipped, good quality utensils

Be Aware:

Small points might help - couldn’t find any oven gloves and so had to use several tea towels.

A clock in master bedroom would have helped, but perhaps that was a conscious decision on your part....

Robert and Helen have thought of everything at 6, Grange Avenue. They are lovely people - they never bothered us at all, but they were there if we needed them.

Everything about this accommodation was first class. I would recommend it to everyone. I’ve told my friends about it and recommended it to them.

It was cold outside, but lovely and warm and welcoming inside. I loved my stay and will book it again. Thank you so much Robert and Helen. Well done. God bless.

“Wonderfully relaxing and friendly”

Excellent. The owners were lovely, welcoming people. They went over and above what one should expect. Every ’little extra’ had been thought about. Our daughters were thrilled with the TV in each room and Wi-Fi.

Situated in a quiet residential area of the town but near enough to town facilities to walk everywhere.

We have hired holiday homes throughout the country for the last 16 years and this (No 6) has honestly been the most comfortable, cleanest and friendliest to-date. Nothing can be faulted!

I have already recommended No 6 to people. We are looking at coming back later in the year to celebrate our anniversary. THANK YOU!

Specifically Recommend:

Comfortable beds

Quiet area

Outdoor undercover area

Be Aware:

Has downstairs facilities however there are steps back and front of the house so not really suitable for wheelchairs entering or exiting the property

“Absolutely wonderful”

The house is a beautiful property, well maintained and spacious. My family and I have enjoyed our stay and our only regret is we didn’t book for another week.

My children, who are 10, 8 and 5 years old, enjoyed not only the house but the beach and the town which are both in close proximity to the house.

It has been a wonderful week that my whole family has enjoyed immensely. We hope to return next year.

Specifically Recommend:

The property is approx 15 mins walk to the beach, and is perfectly located to catch public transport to both Bridlington and Scarborough.

Be Aware:

There is a bit of a walk to the beach. However, as a young, active family we didn’t find it any bother at all.

Local Gems:

The Tandoori restaurant and 3 Tuns pub and restaurant are excellent places to eat - the service and friendliness were exceptional.

We all really enjoyed our holiday - it was over too soon but we shall be back!

Specifically Recommend:

All done to a very high standard

Local Gems:

The Bay - for a local pub that serves food.

Castle Howard for a good day out for house and gardens.

Summary:

“Apart from the weather (two days of solid heavy rain!) we had an excellent time. The cottage had plenty to do, so did not feel too disappointed not to get out”

Lovely property in a quiet location, ideal for all the family.

Ground floor bedrooms. Everything you could think of was provided from umbrellas to deck chairs in garden, bed linen and towels.

Lovely, spotlessly clean and modern decor. Laminate flooring throughout except bedrooms which are carpeted.

TVs, DVD, Sky. Plenty of parking. Will definitely recommend.

We visited Filey itself - a lovely small town, the gardens near the beach are lovely to sit and watch the world go by. We also visited the Lavender Farms on the Wolds and enjoyed a lovely lavender scone.

Specifically Recommend:

The cottage is ideal for all from children to elderly.

Local Gems:

We were lucky to be there when the Olympic Flame came through Filey, only had to walk to main road and wait, was definitely a sight to see, and was a highlight to the holiday.

“Lovely holiday - wish the weather had been better, but we didn’t let that spoil it - we came well-prepared!”

The accommodation was excellent. It contained everything you could possibly need, and more! The decor had been completed to a high standard and all spotlessly clean. All beds were extremely comfortable making it difficult o get up in the morning!

Although there isn’t a back garden, the yard is plenty big enough for children to play (we brought a swingball). Plenty of parking space on the premises.

Overall, a lovely holiday and well worth a visit.

Specifically Recommend:

Well equipped, comfortable and quiet location.

Be Aware:

Some may find the walk to the seafront quite a distance, but it didn’t pose a problem for us.

Local Gems:

We all loved rock-pooling on a day out to the area near the Sea Life Centre at Scarborough.

Glendale Park in Filey is great for kids and adults.

Summary:

“One of the most relaxing holidays we’ve had in years”

The accommodation was immaculately clean. Fittings and furniture were of excellent quality. Every need seemed to have been considered and catered for. All equipment was in full working order and relatively new. We also received a complimentary bottle of wine and luxury chocolates - lovely!

The beds were amazingly comfortable, with good quality linen. Also excellent supply of ample-sized towels.

The property was on a quiet street, a short distance from the beach and town. Lots of parking space at rear of property.

Filey promenade is lovely for a stroll, with lots of benches to have a sit and enjoy the views and sea air. My Mum needs a wheelchair so Filey is great, as the promenade is on the flat, with lots of disabled parking made my life a little easier not having to walk miles from parking bays and not up and down slopes.

Shopping was great in Scarborough. Easy to access and plenty of parking in the multi-storey - spent a fortune!

Specifically Recommend:

Very welcoming owners who took excellent care of us. As my Mum is disabled, we needed it to be totally accessible and it was. Very comfortable and en-suite shower was excellent. Good quality, warm, home-from-home.

Be Aware:

The downstairs bathroom does not have a walk-in shower, so unsuitable for those who cannot climb in or out of the bath to access the overhead shower.

Local Gems:

The Walled Garden at Scamston - perfect place for browsing and tranquil surrounds (especially on a warm day). They gave Mum free hire of their mobility scooter. It was great and made her day - and mine as I didn’t have a wheelchair to manoeuvre along the gravel and grass paths.

En Route:

Farm shop and tea room a short drive from Filey along the Malton Road. Delicious food and seating outside.

Lavender Wolds (on same road) - unbelievably relaxing and great food (especially the lavender scones!)

This is one of the best self-catering cottages that we have rented. The accommodation was extremely comfortable, like home-from-home. Had teenage daughters with us and enjoyed the WiFi, Sky TV package and iPod system.

Filey is a very nice, clean town and we enjoyed many cliff walks nearby.

Visit to York was great - only 45 minutes by car.

Would recommend this 5-star property

Specifically Recommend:

“A lovely place to stay - comfortable, relaxing and a very good base to travel”

Very comfortable accommodation. The kitchen was not lacking in anything - even Thermos flasks were provided. Crockery was all the same, just like at home. Plenty of pans, casserole dishes etc. Lovely to have a dishwasher and washing machine. It was lovely to feel you weren’t having to ’make do’, as it was just like being at home.

Entertainment facilities were excellent. Flat screen TV, Sky, DVD player and surround-sound radio (could even be heard in the bathroom!), and also flat-screen TVs in the bedrooms. Also internet access.

Parking was great. My husband worries about parking, but he was able to park the car and even have it under cover - excellent.

Robert and Helen are very welcoming and couldn’t do enough to make your stay a happy one.

Specifically Recommend:

A home-from-home. Couldn’t wish for anything better

“ONE OF THE BEST!”

Having spent many years holidaying in self catering cottages etc this will go down as one of our best. We received a warm and friendly welcome and the accommodation was first class.

Filey is a small and friendly seaside town and we certainly found the locals friendly.

There are lots of places to visit and if you feel energetic, there are lots of walks.

One advantage here is having the owners next door.

P.S. Thanks for the wine!

Specifically Recommend:

Very comfortable and clean.

Owners next door - very friendly and helpful

We ate at the White Lodge Hotel on a number of occasions. Food was very good. Staff friendly and opening hours suitable if you wanted to eat early.

The accommodation was outstanding. Equipped throughout with excellent furnishings and appliances.

The owners have thought very carefully about what is required in self-catering accommodation and it is a credit to them.

There is nothing that can be improved upon and I will highly recommend this establishment to family and friends.

Nothing specifically, as everything is outstanding - equipment, cleanliness etc.

The owners are so friendly and helpful you feel as if you have known them for many years.

“Great place to stay. House very clean, short walk to beach, shops, pubs, restaurants... and some fantastic real ale pubs”

I have been coming to Filey since I was a baby and it has not changed at all (this is a good thing!). It has everything you need for a family holiday.

The house was an ideal base for our holiday and was spacious enough for five of us to stay comfortably with our baby.

Robert and Helen had really thought of everything including black-out blinds for our baby, and freshly caught fish. It was very good value too. We will definitely be coming back next year.

Specifically Recommend:

Great place to stay.

Short walk to shops, beach etc.

Very nice and quiet.

First floor ’suite’ means two families can stay with enough privacy

Local Gems:

Real Ale pubs (Bonhammes)

“Very relaxing holiday in extremely comfortable surroundings”

The house provides excellent family accommodation with high quality furniture and fittings. There is a large bedroom upstairs and WC and shower. Downstairs there are two twin bedded rooms and a good bathroom. All bedrooms have flat screen TV and the lounge has a flat screen TV with Sky and Sky plus.

The kitchen is very well appointed with a large oven and gas hob. There is also a dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. In the large yard out the back there is garden furniture, an excellent gas barbeque and off-road parking for two or three cars.

The house is in a very quiet residential area but only about 10 minutes’ walk to the town and 15 minutes’ to the beach. The owners live next door and are very friendly and obliging. I would highly recommend the property.

Specifically Recommend:

Very well appointed bungalow.

Nice quiet area

Stairs quite steep and narrow so may not be suitable for the elderly, but there are two good bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs.

Local Gems:

Filey has great local facilities. Recommend the Beach Chalets on Coble Landing. Also Fish & Chips on the Coble Landing.

Adrian Collings - excellent butcher.

Bonhommes Pub for real ales

Sterchi’s chocolates

En Route:

Langlands Nursery at Shiptonthorpe is an excellent coffee stop for those travelling from the M62

Summary:

“Very good”

The house is situated in a quiet area, yet is not far from shops and seafront. There is a large paved area at the back with patio table and chairs and covered parking area for up to four cars.

The interior furnishings and decorations are very stylish, comfortable and clean. Towels and bedlinen are good quality.

The house has been renovated with great care and provides a very comfortable holiday home. The only thing I think might be a useful addition would be black-out blinds in the bedroom.

I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Specifically Recommend:

Quiet location.
Easy walk to sea front
Very comfortable furnishings

Local Gems:

San Marco Italian restaurant in Filey
Stained Glass Centre, Lebberston, near Filey

One of the best I have stayed in - will certainly be back in the future.

Summary:

“Very good”

The house and suroundings are very good and quiet.

You do need to find the short cut to the beach (south side) when walking

We felt it would have been nice to have a soft play area for children at the rear of the property.

Specifically Recommend:

RSPB Bemton, North Landing, Flamborough Head and all other east coast towns from Whitby to Bridlington.

Filey Brigg and the coast path to Scarborough

York is a must

Local Gems:

See above

En Route:

We only had a two hour journey with no stops.

JW, Sleithwate - June 2011

Owner’s Reply:

Sorry no short cuts to beach - takes about 10 minutes walking.

However, we have now created two lawns at the front of No 6, which we class as our soft play area for children - Robert.

Excellent accommodation with great facilities and top quality furnishings.

Nice quiet location, a very short drive, or a 10-15 minute walk to the town centre, 15-20 min walk to the beach.

Location is great for days out to Bridlington and-or Scarborough.

Owners very friendly and helpful.

Specifically Recommend:

Walks on the sea-front at Filey!

Local Gems:

Bridlington and Scarborough (both less than 15 mins away by car) are great days out for families with kids, but the best half-day we had was at Playdale Farm which has superb indoor and outdoor playground equipment for children as well as the petting farm.

“Relaxing family break in luxury accommodation”

We choose the accommodation because of the fantastic location, the description and the great photographs on the advert. It was much better than we could have ever imagined.

We were given a very warm welcome on a cold February evening. Our children explored the place while we were shown where to find everything.

The place was very comfortable, cosy and had everything you could ever need and more. This is a great place to stay and use as a base to explore the east coast.

We had lots of information about where to go, places to eat and things to do.

Specifically Recommend:

This is a great place for a family to stay or for a romantic getaway.

It would be impossible to make this place any better than it already is.

The house has been finished lovingly to a very high standard.

Filey is a beautiful town, stunning beaches and not over touristy.

Specifically Recommend:

Stay as long as you can!!

Be Aware:

The coffee table in the lounge is a card table (which we discovered too late)!

Only thing to provide would be a hair dryer, unless we just didn’t find it!

“Excellent”

Better than advertised - very clean and very well presented.

We have stayed in Filey for the last three years at the same time - end of October. We have always found lovely accommodation and No. 6 Filey did not let us down. It was clean, very spacious in fact everything about it was excellent.

It was a little further out of town than we expected but this wasn’t a problem - we just followed the main road. It was a five - 10 minute walk to the train station, which is very handy if you want to go to other places and not use the car.

Overall, our weekend was excellent. The children loved it and so did us adults. I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to family and friends. 10 out of 10!

Specifically Recommend:

It caters for all ages. My parents had the top bedroom and bathroom, and we had the downstairs.

Be Aware:

Nothing - everything was catered for.

“A really relaxing holiday in the most comfortable accommodation”

From the time we spoke to Robert and Helen to book our holiday we were sure of a good holiday in top quality accommodation. They greeted us as friends on our arrival and we were so impressed with the accommodation.

There was a welcome pack and a very useful information pack of all facilities, restaurants and places of interest to visit.

The bungalow is approximately 10-15 minutes’ walk from Filey centre and bus and train stations. There are regular buses which will also take you to Filey centre. By car the main coast road is only a few minutes away for trips to Scarborough, Bridlington or the Yorkshire moors.

Specifically Recommend:

Beautifully furnished, very clean, extremely comfortable.

Extremely nice and friendly owners

Local Gems:

Visit Humandby (just a mile off the coast road) and try the most delicious plum scones ever! Well worth a visit

En Route:

Travelled from Doncaster and visited Burton Agnus Hall. Worth a visit for good food and relaxation.

Summary:

“Home-from-home”

The bungalow is decorated to a very high standard. Everything is new and we found it to be very comfortable.

The owner met us on arrival and provided tea, coffee, milk and biscuits which was very nice of them.

Nothing was too much trouble for them. Everything we needed was there.

The bungalow is situated on a nice street about a 10 minute walk from Filey Beach

Specifically Recommend:

Home comforts and luxurious furnishings.

Very clean

Local Gems:

Lunch at 5 Leys restaurant in Filey - very good

Summary:

“FANTASTIC!”

Very quiet, the blossom trees gave a great welcome.

The house was in the right spot - away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and just 5 minutes by car to the beach and lovely promenade.

Plenty of shops in the town centre. Bridlington and Scarborough very close and worth visiting.

Overall the house made our stay. We were so comfortable and did not want to come home.

Specifically Recommend:

The warm and friendly greeting and the whole house - just perfect

Local Gems:

The beach is just amazing.

The walks on top of the Great Orm just breathtaking.

En Route:

Not appropriate - only travelled from Bradford!
