    This affected the sleep of one of our parents, and should be brought to the attention of future customers.

    The Children were delighted with the "play room" and the lovely selection of books. The house is in a good location near the supermarket and is only a short walk to the beach. Would love to stay her again but not that likely to given that the prices for the same time next year have increased by £500.

  • "The owners, the Johnstons, used the 20/21 winter lockdown to redecorate, refurbish and make a number of improvements to the property."

    Their attention to details makes it feel more of a home than a holiday let. It is larger and more spacious than appears from the photo's and very well "kitted out". We had no problem street parking and the location in a quiet street in central Filey makes all local facilities easily accessible within a 10 minute walk. We'll certainly be back!

  • "After the disappointment of having a foreign holiday cancelled were were really looking forward to our stay on the Yorkshire coast."

    We were not disappointed! Fantastic central location from which we were able to visit a lot different coastal town over our week’s stay. House was lovely and spacious but with cosy decor with all amenities that we needed. Lovely little sun trap of a garden, close proximity to Tesco and a short stroll to the beach allowed for us to get out and about every day. We would highly recommend staying here and would be happy to return!

  • "A lovely visit again, having been to the Robins before."

    The house is extremely well set up and, despite COVID-19 restrictions on some things (like books and DVDs) nearly everything you want to do in a home is possible there. We highly recommend it.

  • "This was our second stay in The Robins and was just as good as we remembered."

    We had a phone call to say that the property was ready for us, a little earlier than arranged but as we were a little later than we had hoped to be we rang Sue just as we were arriving and she came straight away to show us around. A lovely warm welcome with a complimentary basket of essentials to make a welcome cuppa! The photos do not do the property justice and we couldn't find fault with anything. I thought something was missing in the lounge but my husband remembered the lovely Christmas tree from our earlier stay! Really spoilt for choice with more books than a library, games and even jigsaws as well as toys for younger children. Lovely linen and more towels than we needed....perfect! And within a 3 minute walk of our favourite restaurant...Bella Italia is just around the corner but do book. We went twice during our stay and the restaurant was full on both occasions. We had a lovely stay here and will definitely return.

  • "The Robins is a very comfortable and homely holiday let, ideal for families with the vast array of games and toys available."

    The owner who met us on arrival was very keen to address any problems as and when they may have arisen. I would however like to point out that a tumble dryer would have been handy as there is adequate space in the utility but this was not a big issue as there is a launderette a short walk away. Also a grab rail over the bath would be a big help to older visitors. We are definitely not ruling out a return visit!

  • "Thankyou , for the "Robins" ,this property was well situated in Filey and had everything you could want or need really."

    Had a comfortable stay and my granddaughter who is only 17 months old was forever fetching me to play with a tremendous variety of toys which were in a separate downstairs room which throughout the holiday she dominated as her playroom. I think we both loved it ,my granddaughter due to the toys and me getting her attention. Our friends had the on-suite bathroom which they appreciated, and my son, partner and granddaughter had the middle bedroom which gave them adequate space , having the little one. The safety gate was a blessing at the bottom of the stairs during the daytime. The garage/store was just round the corner or Tesco,s was a stones throw away. All in all a good spot to stay , I would recommend the Robins to anyone wanting to stay in Filey.

  • "Having had lots of self catering holidays my only gripe would be that it would have been nice to had a few basics provided initially."

    A few tea bags, small milk etc on arrival. I guess with some accommodations in the past the proprietors have surpassed them self’s with providing a lot of basic items - salt, pepper, bin liners, fairy liquid, bleach for bathrooms. All this aside, The Robins was lovely accommodation and suited all adult family needs, ticking all boxes for a lovely holiday.

  • "The house was extremely clean and the furnishings were of very good condition."

    However, I do not feel that it is suitable for elderly or disabled people. The stairs were extremely steep and the polished floorboards were difficult for the disabled or elderly. Also the house accepts pets which is good as we have a dog but she found it really difficult to walk on the floorboards and kept slipping. I feel also it would be better to have some net curtains on the front windows as you felt were open to people walking by or from the opposite side of the road. Apart from these comments the house was very nice and comfortable.

About the location


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.
