“Hidden Gem, superb quality family cottage for year round breaks”
Reviewed January 2, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Highly recommended for families of all ages - ours being Mum, Dad and two boys under 12.

Very well presented cottage that we found had so many little 'extras' that others simply don't provide and makes all the difference!

LAYOUT - well designed and decorated on a single level, with open plan kitchen / dining / living area, cosy bedrooms and super bathroom with bath and power shower. Not forgetting the outdoor decking, BBQ and games areas that really make it, even during a winter break.

CATERING - excellent kitchen, properly equipped with good quality clean cooking equipment, crockery and utensils - enough to cook a full roast dinner for the four of us without issue - not many cottages you could do that in! Small touches such as providing tea & coffee, washing liquid and sponges/cloths, even aluminium cooking foil prove that Kerry (owner) has really thought hard about what a family really needs on a self catering holiday.

ENTERTAINMENT - great selection of DVDs, games and books all provided, along with a large widescreen LCD TV, Freesat, DVD&CD player that kept two boisterous kids (and parents) happy.
Free wifi that really does work and gives a decent bandwidth - a big plus above anywhere else we've had 'free wifi'.
Alongside the indoor entertainment, the outdoor areas are a real bonus, with a large covered area housing table tennis, darts, a large gas BBQ, seating and not to mention a huge selection of beach equipment inc buckets and spades, balls, surf gear and windbreaks all available for guest use. You don't realise the difference this makes until trying to fit this in the car, esp once it's all wet and sandy for the trip home!

CLEANLINESS - faultless!

LOCATION - a real plus point being literally 5 minutes from the promenade and beach, accessed via a short passageway down to the promenade. Access does include a couple of short flights of steps and parking isn't available at the cottage itself, but don't let that put you off - free parking is available on the seafront or on the road behind the cottage, both of which are literally a couple of minutes walk, and we found actually helped to keep the cottage itself quiet and secluded away from the main traffic and walkways - meaning you can happily leave the kids to play in the outdoor area and not worry.

OUT AND ABOUT - Filey itself is very compact, and we found we could easily walk to most shops and attractions, only using the car for trips out of town. Good selection of shops for both food and general browsing, as well as cafes, chippys, pubs and restaurants.

“A perfect Christmas escape in a wonderful home”
Reviewed January 1, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

My family thoroughly enjoyed the week we stayed in Beach Approach. As we walked in we were wowed by the cleanliness and character of the cottage. It had everything we needed for a very comfortable restful stay. Kerry was there when we needed her and very very kind and helpful. The location was brilliant as two minutes walk found Alf, my dog, and me on the fantastic beach. I am already looking at dates of when I can return.

“A real 'Home from Home'!”
Reviewed October 29, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I originally booked this cottage for myself, my husband and our two small children, but thanks to family, we managed to get away just the two of us! The cottage is tucked away, just behind the seafront. Beware, there are a few steps to climb to access the cottage! The cottage itself is wonderful. Finished to a very high standard. Two lovely bedrooms, immaculate bathroom and a wonderful spacious kitchen/lounge area. The cottage garden has a wonderful games area. We didn't use this, but it would be wonderful in the summer!
The kitchen has everything you need. Although we didn't use it much, we ate out and ordered in a take away! Would definitely recommend this cottage!
My only downside was the lack of parking. It does clearly state that parking is free along the seafront. But there just wasn't any spaces available!! And we visited out of season. I would imagine the summer months are impossible to get parked. It does make unloading the car a little difficult, and I wouldn't like to think I'd have to lug a pushchair and all the baby clutter all the way from the car to the cottage!
But the cottage itself is warm, cosy, more than comfortable and a real 'home from home'.
Thank you Kerry! X

“All you need...”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

you will find and Beach Approach Cottage. We felt at home immediately and that feeling stayed with us through the whole two weeks we stayed. Cosy and comfy and nice to come home to when the weather doesn`t always permit long days out. Beautifully equipped and clean and would love to come back with other family members sometime. Kerry was always there for a helpful tip and made us feel very welcome, all round wonderful place to stay.

“Fantastic Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed September 18, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed for 4 nights in September and absolutely loved the cottage. So well equipped will all the essentials and lots of extras. Kerry, the owner, was so helpful. Just a few steps down to the beach was great for the dogs. Cottage was so clean and cosy and the outdoor space was brilliant for all ages. Can't wait to return to Filey and Beach Approach.
