About us and our house

Hi there.  

We are Helen and Chris Owen.  

We have a normal, if large family with 4 boys.  Where on earth can you go on holiday with 4 children and two adults, not forgetting the extended family. The accommodation is just not readily available for large families or a family get together.   For a few years we searched, eventually coming to the conclusion that Filey needs a large holiday home for all occasions.  So we decided to open one.  It took a little time to find just the right place, but now we have it.

The family first came to Filey on the Yorkshire coast 10 years ago, on the advice of Chris, who spent many a holiday there as a child in the 70's and 80's.  Helen's family had a week long get together in the Spring Bank holiday and having tried several locations across England we finally settled on Filey as being the perfect destination for everyone.

We looked for venue, couldn't find one, so decided that there was a gap in the market!

Our house itself was bought with family get-togethers in mind.  It is a large stunningly elegant Victorian 3 storey family house.  The house has 5 double bedrooms and will easily sleep 10.  We can take 11 if required due to a slight error on ordering a mattress!  

It is situated in a street of primarily family residences right opposite the tennis and bowling green, along the road from a large park with swings, a boating lake and on the same road as the pitch and putt and also the full 18 hole golf course.  We are 5 minutes walk from the beach.

Filey is situated at one end of a stunning 5 mile long white sandy beach.  It lies in a sheltered spot guarded from the British weather by the North York Moors and Filey Brigg to the north, the Yorkshire Wolds to the west and Flamborough Head to the south.  Bempton Cliffs sports a fantastic nature reserve.  Filey beach is frequently visited by seals and puffins.

The cliffs and beach around Filey are a great source of fossils.  Our children have quickly collected a wide range of good quality collectable fossils just from having a quick walk.

Filey has a yachting club with courses available for young and old. 

Just up the coast lies Cayton Bay with it's growing surfing reputation and surf school.  The bay itself is absolutely stunning - definitely well worth a visit.  We ourselves just passed it by for several years, then kicked ourselves once we found out what a glorious place it is  

Scarborough lying 7 miles north of Filey boasts to be Britain's first sea-side resort.  It is certainly magnificently located over two bays, with a fine castle, views to the the moors and even a natural road racing circuit.
