We bought the property in 2011 before it was built and enjoyed watching it grow. It is now a family holiday home but we love sharing it with our guests and friends. We have a little dog and she loves the beach. We all love Filey - it is so unspoilt and so many lovely walks. I am Wendy and my family is Kerry, Gemma, David and Rosie who have little Hollie aged 5.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Owner chose Hunmanby
The property has a wonderful outlook onto the boules court which is lit on a night. The meadows walk is lovely any time of day but early mornings or dusk are our favourites. The beach is mentioned by everyone who visits and is definitely a bonus!
What makes this Cottage unique
The leisure centre and pool offer unique on site facilities if you fancy a swim, sauna or a more energetic work out. The beach walks are wonderful anytime of year and the little cafe at Hunmanby Gap is a family favourite.

Beautifully clean with a fresh, beachy feel throughout. Lovely furniture and touches - not just standard items with no personality. Thought has gone into every piece. Lots of little extras left to make everything easier- games and books for the children - lots of crockery and cutlery; They had an egg poacher - this made my husband very happy! It's further from the beach than the other properties in the village but we really enjoyed the walk down (maybe 10 mins). We also preferred the location as it is quiet and private - those nearer the beach have foot and road traffic passing - we had nobody passing. We would definitely stay again and have no qualms in recommending it.
lovely homely cottage.
I stayed at the property with my husband and cocker spaniel Jimmy 26th to 30th March 2018.
It was easy to find, clean, spacious and everything you need for a comfortable stay. The site was very clean and well kept and the pub food and service were great. It was quite a steep hill down to the beach but worth the walk and Jimmy was well worn out at the end of each day!!!!
We had a lovely few days and would recommend this property.
Tracey and Simon from Barnsley.
We loved having you all to stay. Thank you for the review and hope to see you again soon!
Great house, very comfortable with everything you need for a good holiday. Good location to walk on beach and get to Bridlington and Scarborough. Would stay again.
Thank you for your review. The beach is always a favourite and we agree the cottage is very central for exploring the neighbouring seaside towns. We would love to welcome you back in the future.
Great property, comfy and well furnished
Lovely cottage with every need catered for, would recommend as a base and to take advantage of amenities and access to the beach.
Many thanks for your review Jean, so glad you enjoyed your stay. We agree it is a good base and handy to have leisure facilities on the site too. The beach is always a favourite. Come back soon!
The accomodation was far superior than expected, the house and fittings are excellent.
It is a great location for us, the beach not far away, and an excellent location for traveling up and down the coast with Whitby only 50 minutes away, Scarborough and Bridlington even closer.
Boggle bay is definitely worth a visit too.
Thank you for the review Danny. Boggle Bay is definitely going on my list! We hope to see you again soon.
