In March, I not only celebrate my own birthday, but I also celebrate the birthday of my little sister and step-dad. Last weekend, we visited Filey to celebrate my sister, Hayden, turning 2 and my step-dad, Rich, turning (we’ll say 21!). Filey is great, especially if you visit Primrose Valley, Haven. That place is the place to be if you’re under 12, and I’ll admit, I enjoyed Rory the Tiger’s dance moves too. The car journey is less than a couple of hours from where we live, so it’s perfect for my little sister. If you don’t fancy staying in Haven, there is a small village, Hunmanby, which is a few minutes taxi ride away.
Southgate Bed and Breakfast, Hunmanby, Filey
Upon arrival, Chris and Julie (The Owners) introduced themselves and we were surprisingly upgraded to a family suite (winning!). The room was huge, featuring a corner sofa, wardrobe, dressing table, double bed, TV and ensuite. Bath towels were laid out on the bed with chocolates, and on the dressing table, we had tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom features a shower and LUX toiletries. The hotel was clean which for me is the most important.
Amenities are close by, there is a co-op over the road which is open late (perfect for late night alcohol purchases), a Chinese restaurant, pubs and other stores. Breakfast was included and was delicious. We opted for cooked breakfasts which you order the night before and a choose a time in the morning you’d like it to be ready for. Additionally, there was also a range of cereal, fruit, yoghurt out to choose from.
If I was to visit Filey again, I wouldn’t hesitate in re-booking this B&B. We paid £70 for the room (£35pp) and feel we got way more value for our money. Chris and Julie are the friendliest hosts, I can highly recommend.
Here are a few pictures I took of our room.
