  • "Very friendly owners."

    Lots of helpful information on how things worked in the cottage. Found the new path from the complex which led straight out towards the cliffs - gorgeous views and beach just a few minutes away.

    Full marks for everything, Sandy Corner is a real home from home that we’d all highly recommend

  • "This is the 4th property that we have stayed in at The Bay and the best yet."

    Sandy Corner is in a great location for the beach and the property was spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable. The attention to detail makes it a real home from home. We would definitely like to stay her again.

    Thanks so much, just a shame I couldn’t accommodate the extra nights. Hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "Perfect stay at Sandy Corner!"

    Can’t recommend the property more, the house is so homely and clean and truly felt like a home from home. Lovely touches like dog treats a bottle of wine and coffee/tea etc on arrival. Perfect location for the beach and exploring Filey. The facilities on site are great we enjoyed the gym and pub / cafe. We have stayed on the Bay before but this was our favourite property we have stayed in and we will most definitely be booking again for next year - we were so sad to leave!

    Thank you so much, we're glad you had a great time. Property Owner

  • "This property is spot on."

    On entry to the property you immediately noticed how clean and fresh the place was. Really nice furnishings and appliances, all in good working order and tested. The shower was nice and powerful ( nothing worse than a poor shower. The heating was timed perfectly and you didn’t need it on for long before turning it off. Netflix on the smart tv & 2 large comfy settees for a movie night in. It’s the little things done right that makes for a pleasant stay. The house is perfectly positioned on the site for beach and the pub. Only improvement I would make is an outside tap for washing the sand off the dogs paws after being on the beach. Would love to return Thank you

    Thanks for the feedback. It helps others to choose. We will look into the external tap. Property Owner

    I can see bookings are coming in for next year but sadly the eye watering price increase takes it out of our league!

  • "Perfect!! It was our third stay at the Bay (which is a great place to go), and Sandy Corner was the 3rd cottage we stayed in there"

    ... and it was really the best one!! It was very clean, very well decorated, really close to the beach and its garden is really great!! We have already booked for next year :-)

  • "The house was very nice position was ideal as only a short walk to the beach but a larger freezer would have been nice to accommodate more frozen food for those who wish to eat at the property in these trying times."

    The garden at this property was one of the best for privacy as other properties on The Bay are more open planned gardens.

    ! Not to be . Arranged for following day. Yes. Cleanliness... I have my own cleaning business my standards are high especially during these times.. cutlery drawer was full of crumbs and greasy, grill tray placed in cupboard under sink to catch drips. Bath very skippy, I slipped 3 times, grouting around bath needs re doing, furniture not moved. I monitored cleaners on site, how can you take the cleaning trolleys into homes at present time, germs on site, I never saw them open windows whilst cleaning, no gloves !!! I could go in !!

    The house was in a lovely location to visit the other seaside towns but was also close to the beach itself if you didn't want to venture off site.

    Quite a steep down hill walk, and obviously uphill back so not suitable for people with walking difficulties

  • "Recently stayed in Sandy Corner in Filey after lifting of internal UK travel restrictions, and have to say what a wonderful stay it was."

    We have stayed in several properties within The Bay site and the location on site, coupled with the extended garden, and internal décor make this cottage a real stand out. Fully equipped with all we could ask for, dish washer, washing machine, wi-fi for the kids, and a 5 minute stroll to wonderful Filey Beach. Not so much a holiday house, but more so a holiday home. Highly recommended holiday home, we loved our stay.

    The owner consented to a last minute booking and text us at the cottage to check everything was good. There was even a bottle of wine for us to enjoy.

About the location

FILEY

Scarborough 7.5 miles; Bridlington 11 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.
