  • "We stayed here for the last week of April 2024."

    The property is like a home from home. Very comfortable, clean and well equipped, even down to the new addition of an air fryer in the kitchen. We stayed here at the same time last year and was impressed then as well. Lots to do and see in the area and the weather even shone on us.

  • "Another fantastic stay at The Bay."

    First time in Causeway Cottage. Beautifully presented, a lovely welcome pack and great location for facilities and the beach. Nice big hallway, ideal for sorting out two dogs when coming in off the beach.

    We really appreciate you’re feedback - thank you for the kind words and we hope to welcome you again to Causeway Property Owner

  • "Our 2nd visit to Causeway Cottage, beautiful home from home."

    Location is amazing with the dedicated pathway to Filey beach, which is a fabulous walk in both directions. The en-suite was updated in Spring, added bonus. Having two comfortable settee’s meant the two of us could put our feet up at the end of the day. The log burner made for cosy evenings whilst the storms did their thing. Comfy beds, plenty of hanging space for the array of clothes needed for our British weather. Being allowed to take our two dogs is great, the large hallway is a handy space for drying them off after their walks to the beach & romps in the sea. An amazing welcome pack, can highly recommend the cafe & farm shop the goodies come from! I used the Shark hoover during our stay, I did try to empty it but couldn’t figure out how to open it.. perhaps the cleaners could make sure it’s not too full for the next guests. Thanks Gwyn & Sally for a great week, can’t wait for a return visit.

    Thank you so much for the superb feedback. It is very humbling to know that we are hosting our guests to a high standard and maintaining it. I will pass the message on about the shark cleaner - best one for picking up dog hairs Property Owner

  • "Property was ok and as described."

    My concerns around cleanliness relates to finding a mouldy bowl of pasta in the microwave and a used plaster on the back side of one of the twin bed quilts. Tried to raise this with one of the cleaners but the message kept returning, not delivered. Seems the number is no longer is use / incorrect. Although we knew the garden was open, we were not aware that all residents use it as a walk through as there is a grassed path at the bottom, therefore we had a lot of random people walking very close to our patio doors.

    Dear Guests I am extremely sorry to hear of your experience and as the owner of the property am very upset by it We pay a substantial fee to ensure our property is clean, tidy and free of everything you wouldn’t expect to see. You can hopefully see that from the previous reviews this is not a normal occurrence and I can only apologise for the things that just should not have been there. I would hope that if you stay with us again you will see that we do take this feedback very seriously Property Owner

    Love the umbrella being there, as i forgot mine,although we didn't need it. Lovely shower,comfy beds. I do think the rack on the bbq should be changed incase people wanted to use it..We didn't so not a problem . Overall an excellent comfortable cottage,would definitely go again .

  • "A super holiday property."

    Everything that we needed was provided even down to a super welcome pack. Made good use of the location, Close to the beach , which was amazing, and actually on the King Charles the third’s coastal path. Two comments we would have liked sharper preparation knives but understand that some people put them in the dishwasher, which blunts them. Also not an issue with the cottage but better recycling facilities on site would have made us happy. Thank you for letting us use this delightful cottage.

  • "Loved the accommodation as it had everything we needed for our family and the cottage was nicely furnished."

    The location of the cottage was brilliant with easy access to the beach, and the drive to neighbouring towns/villages wasn’t far out of reach. In general the cleanliness of the cottage was alright, but few things could be improved. We had to give the high chair a good clean as it had dark brown smears left on the tray; possibly chocolate spread? - but not entirely sure. We had to clean the glassware on arrival as a lot of the glasses had residue or smudges on them; and so we had no confidence they’d been washed up/cleaned ready for use. Aside from that the rest of the cottage was nice, clean, and the sofas and beds were very comfy to relax on. Parking for 2/3 cars was also a bonus! Overall we would like to stay in this cottage again. Thank you.

  • "Beautiful house, but some basics missing that I would have expected in this standard of property e."

    G. cheese grater, garlic press, sharp knives, cleaning clothes and chemicals, washing up pads/brushes, etc. Also very disappointed that the children's pool was shut all week due to staffing issues as this was the main reason we booked this property. Would put us off returning unfortunately as this really let the facilities down when you have small children.

  • "The property was not cleaned to a high standard."

    The bathrooms had hairs in the sinks and on the floors. The kitchen table had crumbs on it, the kitchen chairs and table legs had smeared chocolate spread in areas. The kitchen in general, needs a deep clean. Cupboards not clean, cupboard doors and handles sticky and visibly dirty. The ensuite bathroom had a damaged toilet seat (needs replacing) There was a footprint mark on the toilet seat lid! The ensuite door does not close. The main bathroom door does not close properly or lock. The drawers in both bedrooms were dusty and had hairs in and generally need cleaning. The plug in air freshener was overpowering. I’m providing honest feedback as I would want to know if I owned this property. The cottage is lovely but the lack of cleanliness let it down. It would be useful to state that the garden area is not enclosed and dogs have to be kept on a lead at all times.

  • "Excellent cottage with good facilities and we loved the fact that milk, biscuits, eggs etc were left by the owner for us on arrival."

    We liked the log burner. We managed to purchase logs from the local filling station. The only negative was that the bath was so slippery and there are no handles to aid old people to get out of the bath. Apart from this minor issue it should not put off anyone from booking Causeway Cottage as the property is close to all amenities, shop and swimming pool, close to several coastal resorts and close to the beach.

    The bed was very comfortable and the towels were good quality. We enjoyed the log burner which we lit in the late afternoon. Unfortunately there weren’t any black bags or milk, and the starter pack for the fire consisted of 2 pieces of wood and a few newspapers which were mentioned in the house rules book. No big deal as we had brought our own. Very happy to recommend. We have stayed at The Bay complex before so knew what to expect. Good place to stay to get to the other seaside towns in the area and access to the beach. The latter part of the access is very steep and would be difficult for anyone with mobility issues

    A stones throw from the beautiful beach and excellently positioned for exploring the North Yorkshire Coastline. My only criticism would be the on-site pub/restaurant, the food was excellent however, due to the fact that a good section of the seating area was closed down and not in use, it made it virtually impossible to get a booking even for just a drink, I appreciate this was largely due to Covid but I feel the set up could have been better managed. This would not deter me from visiting again however, as the overall experience was excellent.

About the location


Scarborough 7.7 miles; Bridlington 10.5 miles.

Filey is a traditional English seaside resort with a friendly atmosphere, offering a restful holiday, making an ideal place to stay for walkers and wildlife watchers at any time of the year. A real gem on the Yorkshire coast. A fishing town on the North East Coast, Filey has enjoyed a reputation of being a resort since Victorian times, set beside the magnificent Filey Bay, a long stretch of beautiful sand, with Filey Brigg and its shallow rockpools to the north. Filey Brigg is a low headland that protects Filey Bay and provides good bird watching and seawatching opportunities all year round. The 400 ft high Bempton Cliffs (RSPB Reserve) to the south of Filey Bay are home to over 250,000 seabirds in the summer. Gannets, kittiwakes, puffins, guillimots and razorbills all nest there. Gannets are regularly seen diving for fish in Filey Bay. The Brigg area is an ideal place to watch for common and rarer waders, seabirds and migrating warblers,finches and thrushes. As well as seabirds, seals and other marine life, such as porpoises dolphins and minke whales can be seen in the sea around the Brigg. The town itself seems almost caught in a time warp, retaining much of its character with individual shops, narrow paths and ginnels. There is a small coble landing, a slipway where local fishermen keep their boats, plus delightful beach chalets that can be hired through the summer months. The bay is edged with two promenades and there are various gardens, where brass bands play on a Sunday afternoon. This small town is family orientated, crazy golf and candy floss. Also in Filey there is the Filey Dams Nature Reserve, a wetland reserve where common and rare waders and wildfowl can be seen as well as autumn gatherings of swallows, sand martins and house martins. Also there is Parish Wood (just off Sycamore Avenue) an unexpected gem that offers a wealth of wildlife. Willow warbler, chiffchaff, blackcap and tree sparrows breed there and a wide variety of other species are regularly seen such as great spotted woodpeckers and sparrow hawks. Parish Wood also provides shelter and food for a wide range of migrant bird species such as goldcrests, pied and spotted flycatchers, warblers, finches, thrushes and woodcocks. A short drive brings you to the busier town of Scarborough where for family fun you can visit the Alpamare Waterpark, a waterpark unlike anything the UK has ever seen before, as well as plenty to explore and discover in this lovely area.
