This seven-bedroom B&B in the quaint Filey village of Hunmanby is a renovated historic building that was once an inn. Just three miles from the center of Filey this accommodation is a fantastic choice serving up delicious breakfasts and offering a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy your trip. The rooms are large and the communal areas; such as the dining room and lounge area are well decorated. Cozy up in one of the plush leather armchairs in the lounge and prepare your next day trip into Filey central.
This lodge is particularly great for couples who are looking or a romantic getaway. Located on the cliffs overlooking Filey Bay, the views are fantastic and must be enjoyed whilst tasting some of the food on offer from the onsite restaurant. Using only local produce and fresh fish caught from Filey Bay itself, your tummy happy with the food, your eyes will be happy with the view, and your heart will be happy with the company. The bedrooms on offer are crisp white and elegantly furnished with free toiletries included. We particularly love the unique one-wall-papered wall in each bedroom with a nautical print.
Another option offering fantastic sea views, but this time located 15 minutes from the central Filey, on the Filey/Scarborough border. Mansion House is the epitome of boutique accommodation. This 200-year-old building mixes unique antiques with modernity in each bedroom, so yes, you will still have a flat screen TV to watch the morning news on. The word that best describes this accommodation is ‘splendor’, everything from the theater-styled Georgian curtains to the ornate lampshade will ensure that you feel like a million dollars, living in an age of luxury.
Located 15 minutes to Filey central, this accommodation is also on the Filey/Scarborough border and offers a beautiful interior decorated B&B in which to stay. With deep red hues tinged with gold linings and ornate wooden furnishings, this B&B is clearly a four-star option, that pays homage to its Victorian roots. There are ten spacious rooms on offer at the site, and prices include a delicious breakfast served in the dining area.
Looking for an accommodation that feels like a holiday home with lots of amenities? Then this is for you. Located close to Filey central this large 4-bedroom cottage has beautiful views of the sea, a shared indoor heated pool, gym, tennis courts, direct beach access, games area and WiFi throughout the property.
With all that inside, you’ll have to make time to head out and explore Filey. Our favorite thing about this property though has to be the log stove and wooden flooring which gives a true ‘cottagey’ feel to the accommodation. Great for a family holiday with children.

One of our favorites on this list, this spacious cottage on an award-winning development is just adorable. With the log fire in the lounge are and sea shells decorating the rooms, there’s a hint of outdoors indoors which we love. The bedrooms are decorated with sea blue and green colorings, with white wash furnishings throughout. There is access to an indoor pool, gym, beauty salon, tennis courts and a pub. Phew, it’s like a village in its own right! The two rooms offer one with a king-sized bed and the other with two full-size bunk beds and a single bed.

This modern studio is in a quiet area of Filey and so is perfect for a romantic trip with lots of walking along the beach because there is no TV on site. We like this property for the attention for detail; not only do you get a welcome food pack but also bathrobes and slippers are provided upon arrival. We also love the free-standing ornate bathtub!

Another cottage option, this one offers a location in the heart of Filey, but still, just a 6-minute walk to the beach. This 2-up-2-down style house is comfortable and snug, with a good use of the space available. The decoration has been well thought out with the bedrooms stylishly completed and the bathroom has its own nautical theme to enjoy!
