Cottage Staycation
A real home from home, with everything one could want. Lovely location with easy access to local towns. Lots of local information and books provided which was much appreciated. Ideal place to stay with dogs as many beautiful walks nearby. Would come back.

Brilliant Briar Cottage
Briar Cottage is an immaculate property in a lovely peaceful village and within easy reach of Filey. It is ideally located for visiting the numerous coastal resorts in this beautiful area. Highly recommended.

5/5 Excellent

Superb Cottage
Briar Cottage is an outstanding, well furnished and comfortable property in a lovely village location. The cottage has a lovely garden in which you can relax on sunny days. There are some good walks from the doorstep and a very short walk away, at the end of the street there is a nice pub. As mentioned in the description the cottage has a very steep staircase so won't suit those with mobility concerns. We had a great stay and would be happy to return.
