  • "Second time we've stayed at Summer Corner Cottage and as before, a wonderful stay, perfect place to stay."

  • "Good half term activities on the holiday park."

    Great to be so close to the beach. Well equipped kitchen. No directly parking outside the house.

  • "We had a fabulous time at the Cottage because it was so comfortable and relaxing, nicely decorated, spacious, everything is provided including towels and bedding and all kitchen equipment."

    It is near some great beaches (Scarborough, Bridlington) and there is loads to explore nearby such as the RSPB site or Filey Animal Park. It isnt 100% clear from your summary that Sunny Corner Cottage, Filey is at The Bay Park near Filey which is a holiday park for private owners and not a Cottage in Filey. We were not told this until we had booked and paid our money. It does include access to a pool and restaurant and it is a well maintained site. We were not actually looking for a park setting. We failed to put the heating on and also lacked a pyrex for cooking in however these were snags in an otherwise superb stay.

  • "The description of the house and facilities is reasonably accurate when was new but seems it is a little tired now and in need of a little TLC inside and out."

    We had a couple of issues with regards to cleanliness which I see was highlighted before but does not seem to have been addressed. First we arrived and as we started unpacking noticed large black hairs on and in the bed. Further inspection showed all bed linen had same issue so possibly due to prior occupants having dog or poor washing. Whatever the reason we’re not clean and would have been obvious to whoever fitted so not sure why they just did not change to clean linen. I called the service number and to be fair they were there within 30mins and changed the linen. Have to say the quality of the linen they changed to was dramatic improvement too. The cleaning should really be addressed and I don’t see how the owners are complying with the COVID cleaning guidelines you have set. First with linen example given, second the general cleanliness was poor. Whoever does the cleaning covers the basics, so toilet, sinks but that’s it. Oven, extractor, windows, radiators etc all showed signs that were not cleaned and had not been cleaned for some time. The first evening we put a pan of water on for some pasta. After few minutes heating I noticed something in the water, located it to be something dripping from the extractor filter. The filters were dirty with old oil residue that had heated and then dropped into the water. I ended up cleaning the filters to avoid it happening again and when looked inside the extractor hood was full of cobwebs showing had not been used or cleaned for some time. Outside the garden area at the rear of the property was again intended for some time with weeds 2-3 feet high in places. The location is great with the fantastic beach close by. Facilities and food at the onsite cafe and pub was excellent so I would return to the resort but not this particular property. I would also ask if the price paid was higher than precovid times to cover extra cleaning costs? If so and given the issues I would be happy to have this refunded as clearly this extra effort is not happening at this property. I hope the feedback is useful to help the owners give the property some much needed TLC as would be in their interest to do so. Happy to be contacted to discuss any of this further, have pictures too if needed.

    Hello Mr Render Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at our cottage. We are very disappointed and can only apologise that things were not up to the standards that we want to offer to our guests. It is our intention to offer a very relaxing and problem free vacation to our guests and certainly do not expect them to have to clean the extractor filters. We replace the bedding and towels regularly so there should not be any difference between sets. We are visiting the property ourselves next week and will be having a long discussion with our cleaners/laundry to discover why the standards appear to have dropped & ensure these problems do not continue. Unfortunately the maintenance of the patio area and planting is the responsibility of the resort management but we have already emailed the Manager and requested he takes action to tidy this area up. Once again please accept our apologies and we hope you will consider staying at Sunny Corner Cottage again in the future. Steve & Diane Cook Property Owner

    It does state ***we now have internet*** but it needs to be clearer. Lovely place

  • "Only thing it needs is wifi."

    Reviewed by KathleenSep 2020

  • "Probably my fault for not specifically reading the listing for the exact facilities available, but its pretty usual to expect WiFi as standard in a holiday let and its such a big thing for any accommodation, especially when having to work whilst away, having childrens ipads, laptops for Netflix etc."

    This made things really awkward for us during the trip, although again just to be clear the holiday let does not claim to have WiFi; this was something I simply assumed would be available. Don't normally leave feedback but think this is important as several previous guests have made the same comments in the guest book and don't want anyone else to make a similar mistake. Everything else regarding the Let was fine, exactly as advertised and expected. Good property if WiFi isn't something you'd require.

  • "Fabulous cottage on an impeccable complex."

    Highly recommended. Everyone helpful and friendly on site. Amenities and furnishings in cottage and on the complex were first class. Short walk to beach. Everywhere dog friendly which was such a bonus. Only 1 small criticism is the cottage key security box wouldn’t open however the site office supplied us with spare key to use instead.

  • "First impressions of this property were good - very well cleaned and spotless."

    Overall we had a good holiday but had one or two major problems : 1) There was no WIFI at the property - had we known we would not have booked this house as I work from home and require internet access. I should have checked that it had but I normally assume now that everywhere has it. 2) On my EE mobile there was only an occasional 4G signal anywhere within the house - I receive emails on my mobile but had to get them while we were out or on the beach - not ideal. 3) I attempted to use the outside table for mobile use but above the door of the house next door (no.4) was a wasps nest - we soon abandoned the outside table. I did inform the reception at the Bay but nothing had happened before we left. We could not recommend the property to family or friends.

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.
