Lovely modern house with 2 ensuite bedrooms on award-winning holiday village
About Paula Foster
We are Paula and Tim Foster. We live in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. We have 3 school age children, and love visiting Filey - the children love it too and have their favourite shops, cafes, and ice-cream stalls, as do we! We regularly visit "the Bay" - staying in our first holiday home (Sea Urchins beach house ref 8162520) which we have owned since March 2014. We've owned the Cottage since September 2016, and I (Paula) now manage both properties.
Paula Foster purchased this House in 2016
Why Paula Foster chose Filey
We love visiting the Bay - staying in our first holiday home (Sea Urchins beach house ref 8162520) every couple of months. On one visit, we found out they were building some homes with balconies and sea views, and we just had to have one as its always been a dream to have a view of the sea and Filey in the distance! We were first introduced to the resort of Filey around 9 years ago and we have holidayed there nearly every year since. The beach is excellent - clean, sandy and not too crowded. We have spent many happy days building sandcastles, paddling in the sea and playing beach cricket. The town of Filey has a variety of small shops and cafés, and glen gardens park is excellent for children. We like the fact you can walk easily from one end of Filey to the other, down to the harbour to watch the fishing boats and play in the arcades, or up into the country park to get some great views. We have our favourite places to visit - Sewerby Hall (with a small zoo), Bempton cliffs RSPB, Flamborough, Scarborough and Whitby (including the steam railway to Pickering). All within a short drive. We now stay at either property when we visit, and make them available to others when we are not there.
What makes this House unique
The Cottage has the benefit of both bedrooms being ensuite for extra privacy, and the second bedroom can be made up for children or adults as it has a zip and link bed. As we are a family of 5, we have a further camp bed, as we appreciate the difficulties in finding holidays when you are not a family of 4! The master bedroom has a full width balcony with seating to take in the sea view to the front and side. The downstairs is open plan, great for family time, and the kitchen has all the mod-cons (dishwasher, washer-dryer, microwave etc). The Cottage is also very close (one of the closest) to the path down to the beach, making it really easy to explore the beach. It is also only a few minutes walk to the resort centre where there is a pool, pub and cafe. There are no passing cars (apart from those staying at the final few properties before the beach road) which makes it quiet in terms of road traffic, but you can sit and watch people passing on their walk to the beach.

A beautiful cottage lovely and clean, has everything you need. The location is great , sits right next to the beach path. We all loved it.
I'm so glad you enjoyed Sea Urchins Cottage and you would be most welcome again in the future.
A fab break once again!
A lovely place to stay that was in the perfect location and yet another throughly enjoyable trip to The Bay. Accommodation was ideal for a family and provided us with everything we needed while we were there. Will definitely be returning in the future. 😊
Thanks for your 5* review Rachel, and you are most welcome again.
Lovely holiday home
A lovely holiday home which has one of the best views of Filey Brigg you could wish for! Even if the weather isn't great you can still sit out on the balcony and watch the world go by.
The cottage is well kept and situated very near the path to the beach, pub and pool which is ideal if you have children.
Each bedroom has an ensuite along with a cloakroom downstairs. Plenty of space throughout.
We'll definitely be booking again!
Lovely presented property with everything we needed for great stay.
WHAT A HOLIDAY !!!!!
This was our second stay at the bay. The first property that we stayed at was brilliant and we hoped for something of a similar standard but this property truly exceeded all our expectations. The property was extremely well kitted out, everything we needed was there. When we went out onto the balcony Wow what a superb view. Would recommend a stay very highly. Thanks and well done Paula and Tim
Thanks for your review Graham and its been great to have you back twice since!
Great position, lovely site. Maybe short of a grocery shop.
Very well appointed, although there were a few issues with dog hairs, and legs were unstable on outside patio furniture.
Sea Urchins Cottage is on an award-winning holiday village where there are numerous sporting and leisure activities available every day, for free or a small charge. Some activities can be booked in advance, others via the leisure centre on site
5-10 minutes walk to the sandy beach which stretches for miles, and is suitable for swimming and body-boarding.
3 miles drive into the seaside town of Filey where there are lots of shops including Tesco supermarket.
Just a short drive to Bempton RSPB reserve, Sewerby Hall and Zoo, Bridlington, Flamborough, and a bit further to Scarborough (8 miles).
Whitby and Pickering are around a 40-50 min drive away but great for a day trip or a ride on the renowned North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
Flamingoland is 40 mins drive. The beautiful city of York, and the port of Hull (the Deep aquarium is worthy of a visit) are around an hour.
Sea Urchins Cottage will welcome its first guests in October 2016. If you have any questions which we haven't covered in the description, please do email us.
