  • "We had a lovely short break here the property was clean, comfortable and perfect for bringing along our pooch."

    It was well equipped with everything we needed and we appreciated the welcome pack and doggy snacks on arrival. No issues with parking and good to see that a shop has now opened on the site. We look forward to a return visit

    The house is beautiful, comfortable and very inviting. The bed is lovely and comfortable and the house has everything you need to have a great stay in Filey. We have stayed a The Bay 5 times now and this is our favourite house so far. Needless to say we will be back. Credit to the owners on such a fab place to stay. ❤️

    Thank you very much. This is the best review we have had, We really appreciate your kind words. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Very very nice cottage, would definitely consider going again."

    The beds were exceptionally comfy and very good quality, mattresses, bedding and pillows. You may laugh but when you sleep well the holiday is a holiday! The place accepts dogs but as non dog owners we were pleased to find that it didn't smell of dogs and wasn't much evidence of them being there before us. Very homely and well equipped. Loved our stay. The bay itself is a lovely well kept resort. quiet (at least in January ) we had no parking issues and enjoyed the use of the archery, table tennis and swimming pool. Proximity to beach is fab down a well maintained path. Only improvement I could think of is an outside tap for washing boots (and dogs) after a welly walk on the beach. Perhaps the site has one that I didn't see?

  • "We had a lovely stay at this cottage it had everything we needed."

    Location is perfect. However we have a one year old daughter and we didn't realise there was no bath until we got there. We will definitely recommend this house to our friends.

    We do have a brand new, collapsible child bath suitable for children 0-6 years which is stored with the travel cot in the landing cupboard, as stated in Sykes information as well as the house directory. Also in the bathroom there is a bath stool for the parent to sit on when bathing the child. We will put a notice in the bathroom to re-iterate this information. Property Owner

  • "No problems with the property, lovely and clean, beds really comfortable, felt like home from home."

    The only issue we had was with the parking, very difficult to find a space close to the property, this was not helped by one of the people close by having people over for the day taking up numerous spaces. I think this is something the resort/sykes should be looking at. Also the pub on site is very overpriced for the menu on offer.

  • "Excellent location for the beach and local villages/towns."

    House very clean and had everything you could possibly need, especially in the kitchen. Lounge seating and beds very comfortable. Would like to have blackout curtains in the bedrooms. Having said that, we would not hesitate to book again.

    Everything good except parking. Details states off road parking for one car this is definitely not the case,as we very rarely managed to find a parking space anywhere near cottage. We would love to rebook but this issue has put us off.

  • "A lovely cottage in a good location on the bay."

    Really enjoyed our stay here, appreciated the welcome pack and use of the table tennis bats. The welcome guide the owners provide was useful too. Didn't give full marks for everything as the double bed in bedroom 1 wasn't comfortable (far too soft!), the house could have been cleaner on arrival (dusty in places, house didn't smell clean) and the dishwasher isn't very good. Unfortunately the prices for 2022 have almost doubled (thanks Covid!) so no plans to rebook at the moment.

    The bed was so comfortable and the central heating had the easiest controls that I have ever had to use. Quite convenient as we stayed In April and had a couple of cooler evenings. The site is very clean and quiet and there are plenty of walks that can be done including walking along the beach to Filey. Super break. Thoroughly enjoyed everything about the holiday.

    The site itself is absolutely great, very clean and well maintained withe lots of amenities. The property was very clean, roomey and very well equipped and set in a very convenient location. The one thing that took the edge of it was the downstairs toilet which was broken, I was told about this, but I was told it would be repaired by the time we got there. This was not the case as it was not fixed by the time we left. When we had family visitors for a day it meant we had one toilet for seven of us, which was not ideal,hence why I booked a house with two toilets. Putting this aside I will definitely book again for a short break.

The property

Filey 3 miles.

This modern, end-terrace property is situated on The Bay holiday village, just three miles from the traditional seaside town of Filey.

This family-friendly accommodation is ideal for enjoying the extensive on-site facilities, along with direct access to an expansive, beautiful sandy beach.

There is a comfortable sitting room with a dining area and French doors opening onto a small private patio, just perfect for a morning coffee in the sunshine.

The separate kitchen caters for all needs and includes an icemaking machine and slow cooker, while upstairs are two bedrooms, with the double having an additional TV, a dressing area and a double wardrobe for convenience.

The second bedroom has one small double and one single bed.

Outside are extensive communal grounds with two lakes, barbecues and picnic areas for guests to enjoy, while the popular pub and cafe are just a five-minute walk.

On the complex is a leisure centre with a large indoor heated swimming pool, children's pool, sauna and steam room, which guests have unlimited access to.

Outdoor pursuits include tennis courts, a fishing lake and putting green, or why not relax with a beauty treatment whilst the children partake in a snorkelling lesson?

A pleasant stroll brings you to a glorious beach, whilst the traditional charm of Filey will not fail to please, with its pretty promenades, colourful beach huts and unique coble landing for fishing boats.

Go rockpooling and crabbing on Filey Brigg, take an exhilarating clifftop walk or visit the nearby animal farm.

A little further along the coast lies Flamborough Head and Bempton RSPB Reserve, abounding with nesting seabirds on the chalk cliffs, including puffins in the summer months, a sight not to be missed.

With the larger resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Bridlington close by and the rolling countryside of the Wolds to explore, this welcoming property provides an ideal base for an excellent holiday.

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.
