A duplex apartment located on the beachfront with magnificent sea views and with easy access to local amenities. Perfect for a Yorkshire coastal getaway
Studded upon the rugged Yorkshire coastline is the serene seaside town of Filey, a popular spot for couples and families alike. Right at the heart of the action is this impressive property that sleeps four and provides an excellent vantage point for exploring. Although compact throughout, the property certainly doesn’t scrimp on comfort, style and practicality thanks to the array of home comforts available and thoughtful decor such as tiled flooring underfoot for easy sand removal.
Slip through the private entrance and cast your beach shoes to one side, entering via the quirky kitchen with its exposed red-brick wall and surprisingly contemporary cabinetry. Mealtimes are a breeze thanks to the handy gas hob, electric oven and microwave, and there’s ample storage space in the fridge/freezer for all the delicious treats you’ll discover on your travels. The dishwasher is also useful for saving on washing up after a tasty takeaway or home-cooked meal, but there’s plenty of choice in town for the nights you’d like to take a break from cooking.
The lounge/diner is a welcome sight for weary guests after a busy day splashing in the waves and making footprints in the sand. Beach dwellers at heart will adore the marvellous seascapes this charming abode offers in droves, perching at the dining table to soak up the atmosphere over a classic fish supper. Beyond your smart crockery and glasses of ice-cold white wine lies a vast expanse of golden sand and endless miles of cerulean waves, and if you step outside, you’ll be able to fill your lungs with glorious sea air. To round off an excellent meal, curl up on the sofas with your favourite book, or switch on the TV to catch an exciting film.
At bedtime, you’ll have a choice of two pretty bedrooms, both of which are a delightful retreat once you have refreshed yourself in the family bathroom. Bring along some beautifully scented bubble bath for a pampering session in the bath, or invigorate your tired bones with a lovely hot shower. The first bedroom is positioned downstairs and features a king-size bed and lots of useful storage, and the second bedroom is upstairs on the first floor with twin beds. There’s also an extra WC to save on early morning queues.
Immediately outside the property is a shared spot with a bistro-style table and chairs for a well-deserved drink at sunset. Watch the tide rollicking in the near distance and listen to the cry of seagulls, sipping your delicious tipple as the final rays of light send showers of red, orange and gold across the sky. By day, the promenade is alive with colour and sound, so you’ll be sorely tempted to amble along in search of ice cream, al fresco coffee and perhaps some fish and chips when your stomach grumbles for lunch. There’s a pub and a restaurant within walking distance when you fancy something extra hearty, plus a shop for stocking up on all the essentials. In terms of practicality, you’ll have allocated parking for one car.
