Glenview House is a stylish period property in the seaside town of Filey, barely a five-minute stroll from the award-winning beach. The spacious holiday house is child-friendly, pet-friendly and has all the space and features families could wish in a self-catering property, including four beautiful bedrooms with room for up to eight people. Shops, cafes, and independent pubs like the multi CAMRA awarded Bonhomme Bar are all within strolling distance.
Filey couldn't be better for a holiday in any season. The beach is a sandy five-mile stretch of shore, so, even in the summer holidays, when excited children add a delightful thrum to the backdrop, it never feels crowded. The Times recognised Filey as the Best Beach in England in 2018, with judges praising it as being very family-friendly with rockpools, a sculpture trail, crazy golf, a children's playground, and clean, calm water ideal for swimming, paddle boarding and having fun. You may be lucky enough to spot a seal sunning themselves in spring or porpoises frolicking in the warm summer waters. A walk along the coast between Bempton and Filey Brigg affords spectacular views over Filey Bay, while Cobble Landing is a top choice to sit with a cup of tea or ice cream. Filey has an excellent choice of restaurants, cafes and takeaways, a Tesco supermarket, and a well-curated local museum.
Being close to the North York Moors means that there's plenty to do inland, including scenic walks, mountain biking and horse riding. The resort town of Scarborough is 15 minutes north of Filey, with a castle, waterpark and the beautiful Peasholm Park. Historical Whitby is also close, offering the opportunity to take a whale watching tour, wander along the pier, and see the Abbey, which inspired Bram Stokes' Dracula. Sandsend is a quiet fishing village with a long beach ideal for fossil-hunting. Alternatively, fossick for fossils at Robin Hood's Bay, where the Old Coastguard Station has a good museum explaining the geology of the Yorkshire Coast.
Guests of Glenview House rave about the location, layout and period features, with many returning for fun holidays with family and friends year after year.
