About Adrienne Harrison

I have lived in Filey all my life and could not imagine living anywhere else. I love being by the sea and enjoy going for walks along our beautiful 5 mile beach or exploring on Filey Brigg with my two grandchildren. I am also a keen golfer and am a member of Filey Golf club.

Adrienne Harrison purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Adrienne Harrison chose Filey

It is a former fishermen's cottage in a quiet location within easy walking distance of the local supermarkets and Filey's many local unique shops, bars and restaurants (Italian, Chinese, Indian and of course Fish & Chips shops). There are two banks in Filey (Barclays and Yorkshire Bank). Filey's beautiful 5 mile beach is just 6-7 minutes walk away. The bus and train stations are just around the corner.

Clean, cosy, warm cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautifully cosy. The bathroom is huge with underfloor heating. The living room is cosy with a fire, a sofa and 2 chairs. The kitchen is clean with mood lighting. The main bedroom is very comfortable with lovely decor. It's a very homely cottage.

There isn't really space to park your car outside the cottage but it's a safe enough area to leave your car around the corner.

I would definitely recommend this cottage for a couple with 1 child or couple with a dog. The beach isn't far away at all. However, there isn't any grass nearby for your dog so just make sure they have had their final toilet trips before settling down for the night.

Small well cared for cottage.

  • 3 of 5

Over all it was fine for what it was.

We booked a place with two bedrooms as we wanted to use both rooms. Only the double bed was made up and there were no covers etc. for the other bedroom. All the cottages we have booked before have had all the beds made up, so we didn't think that we needed to point this out before hand. However, we soon sorted our selves out with a visit to the local discount shop.
