  • "I stay at The Bay at least twice a year for at least a week each time, and have done for many years."

    I’ve stayed in many properties there, but of all my stays this was probably my favourite. The property is lovely, warm, and cosy but spacious. It has good WiFi (key when working away) and smart TVs in each room. Its location is great, right in the middle of the beach and the park facilities. The property has its own parking space at the front of the house, great when you’re staying a while or just like to pack a lot! The property had a small Christmas tree and some small festive touches, and came with a lovely welcome gift pack, a really beautiful touch. I can think of no cons, one recommendation may be to install a baby gate at the bottom of the stairs (I’ve had this in previous properties and it’s great to stop kids and dogs running up and down the stairs) but wasn’t essential. Overall a really lovely stay, I’d highly recommend and will most likely look to stay there again on one of our return trips.

    The welcome pack was such a great touch and really well received. Great location only 2 minutes to the beach.

    Thank you for your comments - they are most welcome and we hope to see you back again at some point. We love the location ourselves too. We have another cottage very nearby Causeway Cottage of ever you can’t get in to Silversands Property Owner

  • "Lovely place, conveniently located near the Bay amenities and 10 minute walk from the beach."

    Great little welcome pack with bread, jams, eggs from local shop. Well thought out for babies and toddlers, with a high chair, cot, stool and toddler toilet seat. Plenty of cupboard and drawer space for unpacking. The bed was very comfortable. Unfortunately there was dog hair on a couple of the pillows in the main bedroom, so we swapped with pillows from the other bedroom. The shower was nice and powerful! However the owners may want to consider getting a slightly larger shower screen as the water does get past, we can see it has already caused some damage on the floor. Hand towels for the bathrooms would be a nice addition. Unfortunately the property wasn’t as clean as I expected, but that can easily be resolved with a deep clean and wouldn’t stop us coming back. Overall a nice property in a great location!

  • "We stopped last year and it was fantastic, this year we were expecting the property to be the same and have the same experience, but unfortunately in some areas it was poor."

    On arrival we had no arrival treats as previous - although they did arrive the next evening. The property was not that clean, i had to go around and clean several areas as they were black with hand prints - Banister and nearly every light switch, the skirting is pretty grubby in places and that really doesn't bother me that much and is expected, but not where we touch. The bedding was also strange the bottom sheet was not designed for the bed and subsequently did not fit, woke in the morning wrapped in the dammed thing. Overall we had a great week, just think that the owners need to take the property off hire for a week and bring it back to a better standard.

    Thank you for your feedback - it is really much appreciated. We recently changed cleaner and we were expecting the standards not to have dropped but I'm sorry to hear it had. We will make amends on your next booking. IN relation to the welcome treats, once again I apologise for this. Unfortunately our local supplier slipped up on delivery. This is something that never usually happens with them so. We are actually at the property this weekend ourselves so will be looking at the overall maintenance of the place. Once again thank you and we hope to have you book again so that we can show you that this was a blip in an otherwise impeccable property. Property Owner

    We have enjoyed it on both occasions. The house is clean,comfortable and cosy. It feels like home from home. It is in an ideal location for the beach with our 2 dogs. I cannot fault the property in any way. We wanted to return in September but unfortunately the week we wanted is fully booked.

    Hello sir Thank you for your feedback We are grateful of your comments. You have actually booked our other property for September so I am sure you will meet the same standard - home from home - you have come to expect fro. silversands. Thank you again Property Owner

  • "We have had the most wonderful time at Silversands!"

    It was clean, spacious, well set out and smelled lovely as we entered. Everything was provided and wanted for nothing and we were given the best welcome pack I’ve ever seen. The location of the property on the site is perfect for the beach and site amenities and there is a handy bus stop outside the entrance. The bedrooms are lovely with plenty of drawer and hanging space and the beds, pillows and duvet are really comfortable. We wanted for nothing on our holiday here, even the weather was perfect. Would we stay here again - absolutely!!!!! Thank you

    That’s so good to hear. We push to give our guests the best experience we can and we are so glad it is appreciated. Thank you for your wonderful comments. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future Property Owner

    This was the 1st holiday I have booked through Sykes also..very pleased with the booking. The location was excellent as it was close to the beach and we had brought our 2 dogs with us. We could see the sea from our bedroom window. The cottage was clean and comfortable. We noticed there was no toaster so we contacted Sykes. Within minutes the cottages owner had phoned us and within 30 mins a brand new toaster....and a bottle of wine appeared....best service ever....and toast!

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback, it’s great to know we are getting things right … and we are glad you liked the Toast Property Owner

  • "Lovely little house in a beautiful setting and perfect location wise, we got a delivery from the owner with bread, butter, eggs and jams from a local farm shop which was a lovely little touch and I would truly love to stay here again and will certainly recommend Silversands as accommodation to friends."

    The drawbacks are the facilities on site, mainly that the shop only opens until 6 and there's not much else nearby, so be prepared. The pub is very expensive and the staff there also manage the arcade which gives the kids tickets they can exchange for prices but they were generally to busy to leave the pub and et them cash them in for the kids and food/ drink serving generally just felt poorly organised. However, the staff were lovely and hard working staff so I this is not a reflection of that, more that The Bay itself as a place just feels like it needs some extra facilities. Another eatery, perhaps a coffee bar & sports bar, a football pitch or similar?

    Having a large porch with a radiator was great as we had 2 dogs with us, plenty of space to get them dry after playing in the sea. Gwyn & Sally have provided very comfy furniture and beds, a real home from home.

    Very comfortable. It is in a perfect position within The Bay. 5 mins to the beach and the same to the pub. It was spotless. Fresh clean bed linen. Coronavirus was dealt with effectively.

The property

Discover this outstanding holiday accommodation resting just a stone’s throw away from the sublime Filey Beach and away from the hustle and bustle of Filey town centre, making a wonderful retreat for that long awaited coastal holiday in North Yorkshire.

With two well-presented bedrooms, its prime position and allowing up to two pets, Silversands is the perfect property for a family to return to each evening after an action-packed day.

Relax and unwind of an evening within the light-filled open-plan living room, containing everything you could possibly need to ensure a great self-catering experience.

The sleek kitchen area comes with a range of quality appliances and ample preparation space, so that any budding chefs of the group can rustle up a home-cooked dish or pack up a picnic for the next day’s beach adventure.

Formal moments can be enjoyed at the dining table, a great social spot for delighting in delicious takeaways, home-cooked dishes, toasting to a holiday in North Yorkshire or whiling away fun-filled hours playing board games brought from home.

The comfortable sofa and chairs, which are positioned in front of the TV with DVD player, conclude the open-plan living room and offers a more relax space to unwind before heading to bed.

During balmy evenings, you could open up the bi-fold doors, allowing a seamless integration from the outside in and you could take your dining experience out on to the patio to savour the final moments of sunshine.

Catch your rest each evening within the master bedroom, boasting a bright and airy aura with several nautical touches to serve as a quiet reminder of your surroundings, as well as an elegantly-made king-sized bed.

The twin bedroom enjoys the same refreshing ambience and is great for younger guests of the group or friends and the family bathroom with a shower over bath completes the interior of the property.

For the evening’s where you do not feel like cooking, venture into Filey, home to a number of local convenience stores and vibrant pubs, where you will be spoilt for choice by the selection of amenities that awaits you.

A pretty walk from the cottage will bring you to Filey Beach, which roughly stretches for five miles with the southern end being quiet and popular with families and dog walkers, a great way to soak up the sunshine and enjoy a more relaxing moment.

Alternatively, head to the northern end of the beach to find Filey, a popular seaside destination with a choice of two pretty promenades and a number of attractions including donkey rides along the beach, play parks, invigorating clifftop walks above Filey Brigg or meet the animals at Filey Bird Garden and the Animal Park, offering something for all ages and tastes.

Venture further afield to find the larger seaside resort of Scarborough, boasting a beach, the SEA LIFE Centre, Alpamare UK and an interesting open-air theatre.

With so much to see and do, Silversands is the ideal choice for that action-packed, coastal getaway.

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.
