Description

This spacious, semi-detached dormer bungalow is ideal for a coastal family getaway. Situated in a quiet residential area, in the village of Hunmanby, near Filey, the property is less than 3 miles from the beach at Primrose Valley. The property boasts a lovely conservatory overlooking the rear, enclosed garden, perfect for those travelling with children and/or pets. There are shops and pubs within walking distance, so no need to take the car. Hunmanby is located on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, where the rolling hills were the inspiration for David Hockney’s paintings. The Wolds Way walk runs nearby, a 79-mile walk through the tumbling Yorkshire hills and countryside. The Centenary Way also runs past the village, a walk that starts in York and finishes in Filey, so for those who enjoy the great outdoors, The Retreat is a great base for a walking holiday.
The seaside resort of Filey is just a few minutes drive away, and is an old fashioned, quieter resort than it’s neighbours, Scarborough and Bridlington. Filey is renowned for its large beautiful sweeping beach which has won many awards over the years. Further north there is Scarborough and Whitby as well as the North York Moors National Park. You can catch the steam trains from Pickering to Whitby, crossing over the beautiful moors and calling at Goathland, also known as the village of Aidensfield in the TV programme Heartbeat.
The property is ideally situated for visiting medieval York, a vibrant, lively city that has been voted in the top 10 cities to visit for several years. York appeals to all ages with it’s historical buildings, Jorvik Viking Centre and the Railway Museum, as well as the many leisure cruises available along the river. The RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton is just a few minutes drive away, and offers the opportunity to see puffins, kittiwakes and gannets, all perched along the chalk cliffs. Beach 2½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

About the local area

Scarborough is situated at the southern end of the North Yorkshire Heritage Coast and, together with Filey, offers beautiful beaches, coastal walks and a variety of entertainment for the whole family.

Scarborough is a town of two halves, with South Bay full of amusement arcades, fish and chip shops and donkey rides, whilst the more genteel North Bay is home to several parks and grand Victorian buildings. The whole family will want to take a trip on the miniature North Bay Railway, which will take you to Sea Life Centre and to the Historic Water Chute and Boating Lake.

Filey is a small traditional seaside town, home to an award-winning museum and a nature reserve that is a haven for wild birds. The town is situated at the eastern end of The Cleveland Way, a long- distance footpath that skirts the Yorkshire Moors and has many beautiful walks with stunning views to offer. Kids will love visiting the Alpamare waterpark for all kinds of aquatic fun, with slides, waves and much more to enjoy. 

Within easy reach is the famous Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo, which has something to offer every member of the family, from thrilling white-knuckle rides to children's entertainment. For something really out of the ordinary, pay a visit to Pesky Husky, where you can take part in a kennel tour followed by walk or even a trek with these charismatic dogs.
