Yorkshire Coast Cottages with sea views above
a sandy beach now with free WiFi
Filey self catering holiday accommodation in cosy
beach cottages on Filey seafront. Each Filey self
catering cottage is in a prime beachfront
position with magnificent sea views over Filey Bay
and the award winning Yorkshire coast beach . The
sea views from the cottages extend along the
Yorkshire coast from Flamborough Head to Filey
Brigg . There are three self catering cottages.
Each beachfront holiday home has a living room at
the front of the cottage enjoying these good sea
views. In effect each cottage is on Filey beach
and the address of the cottages is 24 The Beach,
Filey. We have recently installed free WiFi
internet access to all cottages.
Two cottages are 3 bedroomed and sleep 6. One
cottage is 2 bedroomed sleeping 4. These
coastal cottages have been in the Watkinson family
for over 100 years. In 2005 the holiday
accommodation was managed for the first time by
the two brothers John and Peter Watkinson with
their wives Cath and Sue. We take pride in
providing clean comfortable self catering
accommodation and are currently upgrading many
aspects of the accommodation for our guests. Our
aim is to continue to invest in our Yorkshire
coast holiday cottages to make this self catering
accommodation amongst the best in Filey and on the
North Yorkshire coast. Each cottage has everything
you need for the perfect summer holiday or that
essential winter break. The sea views are
magnificent and the sandy beach so close.
The cottages are in the centre of Filey seafront
on the corner where Cargate Hill meets The Beach.
The white painted cottages can be clearly seen to
the right of centre in this picture of Filey sea
front. You really are by the seaside with
fantastic sea views
There is easy access up into the main shopping
area and down the Bridge Hole to Filey's award
winning beach. With the shops close by self
catering is easy. Sitting in the garden at the
front of the cottages looking out over Filey Bay,
drinking your morning coffee and taking in the sea
views is definitely one of the holiday's most
What to do in Filey.
There is plenty to do on your doorstep. Walking
and playing on the sandy beach or swimming in the
sea, ideal for the traditional family beach
holiday. Filey Coble Landing, where the Filey
fishing fleet and lifeboat are kept and launched,
is a few hundred yards away. A short walk along
the beach takes you to the rockpools of Filey
Brigg which is also famous for its angling. Filey
is a mecca for bird watchers and has its own
reserve "Filey Dams" as well as the nearby world
famous RSPB reserve on the 400 foot Bempton cliffs
with fantastic sea views. Filey Brigg also has its
fair share of rare birds. Filey and the
surrounding area boast many beautiful walks, on
the Yorkshire coast, North Yorkshire Moors and the
East Yorkshire Wolds. Filey Brigg is where the
Cleveland Way ends and the Wolds Way begins.
Filey has been a seaside resort since Edwardian
times and a fishing village for much longer. It is
smaller and more refined than Bridlington and
Scarborough and there is much less noisy
development on the sea front. There is also
Filey bird garden and animal park on the outskirts
of Filey and Playdale Farm in nearby Cayton
