Renting Filey Holiday Cottages is a great idea for anyone looking to get away from it all. It is no longer a large tourist area since the closure of the holiday park, although there are many wonderful things to see and do in the area. The town of Filey itself has many historical sites that might be of interest to anyone who loves to learn a bit about the places they are visiting. Children will also enjoy learning about the history of the place.
If you happen to have rented Filey Holiday Cottages in the first week of September you might be able to catch the popular annual Filey’s Fishing Festival. Anyone who loves to fish can enter the competitions. Filey’s Edwardian Festival is a blast from the past. The festival lasts a week and consists of people in vintage clothing and costumes and activities such as Punch and Judy Shows and processions.
If you are staying in one of the many Filey Holiday Cottages then a visit to the Filey Museum is a must. The museum itself can be found just on the outskirts of the town centre in a 17th century farm cottage. The setting could not be more appropriate. Each room is themed and follows the history of Filey from its beginnings as a traditional fishing village through to it being a popular seaside resort.
Filey is also close to the poplar seaside towns of Scarborough and Whitby. Taking a trip to other towns is a great way to explore the area. You can take boat trip up and down the coast to see the land from another perspective. You can also pick up souvenirs and handicrafts along the way as a memento of your holiday in the area and they also make great gifts for your loved ones.
The holiday cottages are an ideal base for a seaside holiday and some of the cottages are right on the edge of the coast and used to be old fishing cottages. You really get a sense of the old charm and character of the cottages when you step inside and the holidays and breaks you can have are simply excellent. Self catering has always been popular and when you head off to North Yorkshire you can enjoy the coast and countryside in style with the cottages.
