We bought Briar cottage in 2014 as we both love the North Yorkshire coast, having many holidays here over the years. Mark currently lives in South Yorkshire and Ian in County Durham. We spend as much time as we can here, but are very happy to share it.
Ian purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Ian chose Gristhorpe
We chose Briar cottage Filey because we wanted a holiday home near to the sea. It is only a few minutes from the local resorts. It also gives us the cosiness of a country cottage within a village setting.
What makes this Cottage unique
Briar cottage is a character property by the sea, with a modern rustic interior and cottage garden.

A beautiful cottage.
The cottage was furnished to a very high standard and contained everything we needed. We all had a wonderful time.
Cosy Christmas Cottage
The cottage was cosy, comfy and clean. The owners had put Christmas decorations up which we appreciated, along with the bottle of Champagne and Belgian chocolate truffles. Communication pre visit with the owners was good. We would stay again and recommend it.
We had a fantastic week at Briar Cottage which was clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished. The cottage is in a peaceful location and makes an ideal base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast. We had some fab days on the beach at Cayton Bay.
Would highly recommend.
Gorgeous, immaculate cottage with loads of character. Very comfortable, they have really thought of everything. Nice quiet location but easy drives to nearby towns.
this is our second stay in this cottage and it was again lovely. everything is very clean and well maintained. plenty of cutlery and glasses etc. the village is very nice and the local pubs are excellent. the only criticism is the owners allow pets, if this wasn't the case then the cottage would be fabulous.
Cute cosy cottage
Briar Cottage is a cosy cottage that has been sympathetically decorated throughout. The location near Filey is quiet but also close to all the local attractions. Staircase is very steep so not suitable for the infirm but we had no problems. The living room is perfect for evenings in and the kitchen is well stocked with all the appliances needed - dining times are compact! The back garden is small but well proportioned and great for a couple of small pooches to pop into when needed. Scarborough, Bridlington & Filey are all easily reached. If travelling to Whitby plan a country route away from Scarborough to avoid the traffic through town. The Sky TV and wi-fi were great for travelling teenagers whilst parents popped to the pub - a great holiday.
