Originally built in 1825 as a ruin, this unique Grade II listed building has been sympathetically transformed into two lovely, detached gatehouses yet retaining all the visual appearances of a ruin. Built in stone from Filey Brigg, The Follies are set in 3/4 acres of natural grounds and visitors are welcome to wander through them, where there is an abundance of wildlife including, rabbits, owls and squirrels.
Centrally located for exploring the North Yorkshire coast, moors and wolds, the historic town of Filey is only 3 miles distant, with its wide sandy beach and all the attractions of a popular seaside resort. Scarborough and Bridlington are both easily accessible, as is the beautiful city of York. There is a 9-hole golf course locally, fishing available nearby, and an RSPB reserve at Bempton Cliffs providing interest for bird-watchers. There are plenty of local shops and pubs within walking distance, and good railway links. Shop 500 yards.

Cosy living room with rug on stone floor, Gothic arched windows and insets in walls, vaulted ceiling and original Gothic archway leading to grounds. Well-equipped fitted kitchen/dining room with stone floor. Bathroom with shower over whirlpool bath and toilet. First floor: Minstrel gallery double bedroom with sloping ceiling, double bed and ½ tester above.

    Fantastic accommodation very well dressed for the type of accommodation. Everything provided and relent location for the East coast. Village has a good deli and grocery shop within walking distance of the folly. Would not hesitate in recomending the accommodation.
