We bought Briar cottage in 2014 as we both love the North Yorkshire coast, having many holidays here over the years. Mark currently lives in South Yorkshire and Ian in County Durham. We spend as much time as we can here, but are very happy to share it.
Ian purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Ian chose Gristhorpe
We chose Briar cottage Filey because we wanted a holiday home near to the sea. It is only a few minutes from the local resorts. It also gives us the cosiness of a country cottage within a village setting.
What makes this Cottage unique
