Bumblebee Cottage is only a five-minute stroll from Filey Bay, with gorgeous sea views. It comfortably accommodates up to four people in two bedrooms. It is perfect for guests who appreciate being within easy reach of Filey's town centre while still enjoying a peaceful location and plenty of personal space. The cottage is part of a prestigious development of holiday cottages and guests have access to excellent amenities that include a swimming pool and small toddler splash pool, steam room, sauna, an adventure playground, tennis court, boules courts, games arcade, pub, cafe and beauty salon. The cottage is child and pet-friendly, making Bumblebee Cottage an excellent year-round holiday destination for families, friends and couples.
It doesn't matter in what season you stay at Bumblebee Cottage because there is always something beautiful to see or fun to do. Filey is ideal for families as it has a traditional atmosphere with a lovely sandy beach, crazy golf, donkey rides in the summer, and the opportunity to tuck into fish and chips or ice cream. If you, or your kids, yearn for a bit more colour and excitement, then the famous seaside resort town of Scarborough is only ten miles north of Filey, with all the fun of arcades, a museum, castle, theatre and sealife museum. Bridlington is another excellent option. If it's quiet that you crave, then stroll south along the beach to the cafe at Hunmanby Gap and watch the waves over a leisurely cup of coffee.
Day trips can include shopping in Harrogate, mountain biking in the North York Moors National Park, walking through James Herriot Country, and sightseeing at Staithes and Whitby. The Yorkshire Wolds Way and the Cleveland Way footpaths both start in Filey, while RSPB Bempton is close by with fantastic opportunities to spot puffins and other sea birds.
