A delightful detached cottage with a lovely garden, located in beautiful countryside a few miles from Filey's golden, award-winning beach. Perfect for a family or two couples, this comfortable and good size cottage is surrounded by glorious open countryside and boasts a large lawned and enclosed garden - perfect for children to play in or for adults to sit, relax and enjoy the sunshine and country air!

Ian and Pauline were great hosts leaving a few welcome gifts for us and bringing toys, a baby gate and bed guard for my 3 year old son

The cottage is lovely, in a quiet location with beautiful surroundings. Kitchen is well stocked so made all our evening meals with ease. Great location, we were able to visit Filey, Bridlington, Scarborough and Whitby. I can highly recommend Playdale Farm Park for a great day out for younger children and Sealife for older ones. Would definitely recommend this cottage.



The cottage is set in pretty gardens with a child's swing, BBQ and a terraced area with wrought iron furniture to enjoy al fresco dining or just drinks before supper after a day exploring the Yorkshire Wolds, the many attractions along the coast or just being lazy, sunbathing on the beach!
From the small hallway leads a sitting room with comfortable sofas, Smart 32" TV, DVD and an electric fire.

The kitchen is well-equipped with a double electric oven and hob, fridge with ice box, microwave and washing machine. There is a dining area with an oval table and chairs to seat four, a lovely spot to sit and take the time to enjoy meals together.
Upstairs there is a spacious, double bedroom which is light and airy, beamed, and decorated with fresh white bed linens, accessorised with accents of cherry and mustard. There is a king size bed with wooden frame and comfortable mattress, bedside tables and good lighting (for those late night readers!) a dressing table and occasional chair.

The twin bedroom is also nice and light and has full size 3' single beds plus a fold-up single sofa bed; there's good size closet and an occasional chair.

The house bathroom has a bath, shower over, electric towel rail, shaver point, WC and hand wash basin.

A cot and high chair are available.


With parking for two cars, the cottage has a superb and pretty large garden, which is enclosed and bordered with hedging; an idyllic spot for children, there's a swing plus a BBQ and terraced area with garden table and chairs - perfect for enjoying meals outside!

(Extra garden chairs stored under the stairs in the hallway.)





Located in open countryside just on the outskirts of Hunmanby a few miles from Filey beach and the town centre and all it's amenities.

What's on nearby?


Filey is a popular choice and is reminiscent of childhood holidays – an elegant and tranquil seaside town boasting a beautiful, award-winning beach, charming shops and plenty of activities for all the family.

FILEY BEACH With miles of golden, sandy beach nearby – recently voted the UK’s Best Beach in 2018 – there’s always plenty of room for the little ones to let off some steam and for the adults to walk for miles uninterrupted.

Or try your hand at water sports such as sailing or surfing or just settle down in a deck chair with a good book and enjoy the sunshine.

THE COBLE LANDING Lined with boats and kiosks selling coffee, tea, seaside snacks and even those ever-popular bacon sandwiches, The Coble Landing is a must to enjoy the views before a walk along the spacious promenade, dotted with coastal themed sculptures.

THE FILEY BRIGG You can walk to the tip of this narrow rock peninsular during low tide and maybe see a seal, sunbathing on the rocks.

The cliff top above The Brigg forms part of the Country Park, which is popular with picnickers, birdwatchers and hang-gliders and is the start of The Wolds Way.

FILEY MUSEUM A past winner of Discover Yorkshire Coast’s Small Attraction of the Year award, is housed in a building dating from 1696, and is crammed with fascinating memorabilia, including an extensive photographic archive.

DALBY FOREST Cyclists can enjoy a challenge at Dalby Forest, or perhaps follow some of the Tour De Yorkshire route and tackle the famous Cote De Harwood Dale or just pedal village to village along the idyllic country roads of the nearby Wolds and admire the views made famous by leading artist David Hockney.

BEMPTON CLIFFS Bird Lovers will love the nature reserve at Bempton Cliffs to see the 250,000 guillemots, gannets and puffins who flock there to raise their young between April and August.

It is a haven for birds and animals, including an important colony of great-crested newts and has an interesting Visitor Centre.

We had an amazing holiday at Honeycomb cottage, the garden was great for us an the dogs, within walking distance for Filey and a short drive to Scarborough and Bridlington, Pauline and Ian welcomed us with beautiful cakes. Pat, Jane, Jane, Ellen and dogs. dogs Mars and Jaffa.
Mr Hilton
Another enjoyable break at this comfortable and well located cottage. As it was summer this time we were fully able to appreciate the enclosed garden and BBQ as well as the local beaches. The owners are both helpful and pleasant and we will return next year.
Mr Meehan
Despite efforts of the owner we were still without Wi fi throughout the week. The Skye's specification included Wi fi in the package, therefore I am seeking some compensation for the failure of providing this. Also, an inadequate, vague description of what was available in the kitchen meant we did not know what was there until we arrived. Regards Helen Patrick
Mrs Patrick
Although we only had a short visit to Honeycomb cottage we thoroughly enjoyed it, the owners were lovely and very friendly and had even left us cake for our arrival! The cottage was very comfortable and clean and the garden was lovely, it was an idyllic spot to relax and unwind. The village of Hunmanby was beautiful, with lovely pubs and shops, it was also a very easy walk along the centenary way into Filey. We hope to visit again in the near future.
Mr Murphy

John Ritchie
