“Self Catering Perfection!”
Reviewed 19 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Beach Approach Cottage offers everything you could wish for in a short break location. Situated just a few yards from Filey's wonderful sea front and amazing beach, it could not be more convenient. It is a quiet retreat is but also close to the action at the same time; a real rarity. The cottage itself is fantastic; beautifully clean, extremely well equipped both indoors and out, and with plenty of space for a family to enjoy in comfort. The outdoor games and barbecue area is a major plus and we are looking forward to making full use of that when we return in the summer. The bedrooms are adequate and very comfortable. The kitchen / lounge area is very spacious and everything you need, from cooking utensils to Freesat / DVD Player and free WiFi (major plus!) is there.

We are a family of four with two young daughters and it is perfect for us. We couldn't recommend it highly enough! However, I imagine anyone would enjoy a stay at Beach Approach Cottage at any time of year. Filey itself can be a breathtaking piece of coastline, and Beach Approach is the ideal place to stay and enjoy it.

“Perfect Retreat”
Reviewed 15 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Stayed at the Beach Approach Cottage for one week (18/02/2012). The cottage was the perfect retreat to get away from the rush of everyday life. The cottage was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, excellent bed linen and towels. We have done many self catering holidays over recent years and the level of detail provided with this accommodation is second to none - you really could just turn up for the week with a bag of clothes and away you go. To the exterior,the cottage benefits from having its own secluded patio garden and games room to enjoy in the better weather. Although not a problem for us, its worth noting that the cottage is set back off the main road from the seafront and is accessed by steps. As BazThornton reviewed, this might be a problem for less ambulate people, however, for us this was a bonus - we unloaded belongings into the cottage and left the car where is was for a week. There are many lovely independent shops within 5 minutes walking distance from the cottage so it was great to be car free for a change. Can also recommend a lovely little Italian restaurant in Filey called Bella Italia - well worth a visit.

“Perfect for us”
Reviewed 13 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We found this property by accident and were so glad we did. The cottage is lovely, very modern, clean and well equipped for all types. The children loved having all the onsite games and activities and having their own bedroom. they do not want to stay in a hotel again now.
Kerry was polite and friendly throughout the booking process and responded quickly to all of our questions.
We found this the perfect escape for a relaxed weekend away and would highly recommend this and will be visiting again in the future.

“Fab, cosy cottage!”
Reviewed 9 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Beach Approach is a lovely cosy cottage that suited us perfectly. We have stayed at 5leys before & the cottage is of the same great standard but with extras :) The outside games area is a real bonus for the kids & if it had been warmer the patio area would have been well used! There are several steps to the property but otherwise a fab location & Filey is an old fashioned seaside town with plenty for the kids...parks, crazy golf, amusements etc with Scarborough only 10 mins away & even more to offer. The kids (& us) want to come back soon!!
