  • "We had a lovely stay."

    The house is well located, clean, comfortable and well equipped. Parking was a bit tricky at times, but to be expected on a bank holiday weekend.

    We are delighted that you have had a wonderful stay with us at Puffin Cottage! Thank you for your extremely positive feedback. Property Owner

  • "I found it hard to find the property - in the dark."

    I must say that the Receptotion staff at the 'BAY' were wonderful and got me into the house and my car in the nearby parkway. The house was well equipped and ideally situated. The kitchen was brilliant, the bathroom and shower were stunningly great. Because of the poor TV transmitter the TV did not work......evidently its the same all through the 'The Bay Resort' - an alternative should be sought till the Billsdale transmitter is finally fixed. But I had a good set of books/novels. The Resort facilities were brilliant, pub, shop and pharmacy! Well done.

    We are delighted that you enjoyed staying at our lovely cottage. We recognise the frustration that the Billsdale transmitter has caused in the local area, but we are pleased that you were able to enjoy using our free book library. Our Guest Booklet explains that if the transmitter fails, you can still access TV channels through the Amazon Firestick or Xbox console, as this is achieved via our free Broadband. Property Owner

  • "When we arrived on the Friday 22nd we discovered that the cottage had not been cleaned or the beds changed."

    There were no towels obviously either. We did text the Sparkle and Shine cleaning company and they got in touch on the Saturday morning- they had had no record of the booking. They came on the Saturday afternoon. We had to sleep in beds with no sheets,duvet covers or pillow cases. This was not very nice. Luckily the cottage had been left pretty clean by the previous guests but the bath was dirty and the bins hadn’t been emptied. We were not given the owners number to complain -only the cleaning company. The visitors book requested ‘ haven of happiness’ comments only!! I suppose it works both ways. We weren’t very happy !! Apart from this bad start we had a lovely holiday and the cottage was great. It was modern, well equipped and had a lovely feel to it. It is a fabulous spot to explore a lot of the Yorkshire Coast.

    Our cleaning company, Sparkle and Shine, are available for emergency phone calls at all times. They were sorry that they had missed the booking, and have assured us that it will not happen again. They have stressed that if the guests had rung them rather than leave a text message, they would have sent a team around to remedy the problem straight away. We are pleased that you had a lovely holiday and enjoyed our cottage. Property Owner

  • "The Bay near Filey is a lovely place to stay."

    Its quite expensive and our accomodation was very good but parking is a problem mainly because there isn't enough of it! Every time we went out we were worried that we wouldn't be able to get parked near our accomodation.The property was advertised with designated parking which wasn't true.The parking problems caused a lot of bad feeling and some arguments it really needs to be addressed!Apart from that we had a good holiday at the Bay.

    Thank you for your comments. We recognise the frustration regarding the provision of parking by The Bay, and have fed this back to the landowners responsible. The property advert mentions that parking is available, rather than promising a designated parking space. Property Owner

About the location

THE BAY - FILEY

Filey 3 miles; Scarborough 10 miles; Bridlington 8 miles.

Located on one of the most naturally beautiful stretches of the Yorkshire Coast, the Bay Filey is fronted by six miles of golden, sandy beach and is an exclusive development of traditional styled holiday cottages, off the A165 Filey to Bridlington road. Filey is a popular choice and is reminiscent of childhood holidays – an elegant and tranquil seaside town boasting a beautiful, award-winning beach, charming shops and plenty of activities for all the family. Filey Beach, with miles of golden, sandy beach nearby – recently voted the UK’s Best Beach in 2018 – there’s always plenty of room for the little ones to let off some steam and for the adults to walk for miles uninterrupted. Or try your hand at water sports such as sailing or surfing or just settle down in a deck chair with a good book and enjoy the sunshine. The Coble Landing is lined with boats and kiosks selling coffee, tea, seaside snacks and even those ever-popular bacon sandwiches, The Coble Landing is a must to enjoy the views before a walk along the spacious promenade, dotted with coastal themed sculptures. Discover the Fily Brigg, where you can walk to the tip of this narrow rock peninsular during low tide and maybe see a seal, sunbathing on the rocks. The cliff top above The Brigg forms part of the Country Park, which is popular with picnickers, birdwatchers and hang-gliders and is the start of The Wolds Way. Filey Museum is a past winner of Discover Yorkshire Coast’s Small Attraction of the Year award, is housed in a building dating from 1696, and is crammed with fascinating memorabilia, including an extensive photographic archive. Dalby Forest is an excellent choice for cyclists, where they can enjoy a challenge at Dalby Forest, or perhaps follow some of the Tour De Yorkshire route and tackle the famous Cote De Harwood Dale or just pedal village to village along the idyllic country roads of the nearby Wolds and admire the views made famous by leading artist David Hockney. Bird lovers will love the nature reserve at Bempton Cliffs to see the 250,000 guillemots, gannets and puffins who flock there to raise their young between April and August. It is a haven for birds and animals, including an important colony of great-crested newts and has an interesting Visitor Centre. Scarborough is 20 minutes north of Filey where theatre goers can enjoy the world premieres of Alan Ayckbourn plays plus Scarborough Open Air Theatre attracts many world-class artists – recent concerts have included Britney Spears, The Beach Boys, Little Mix and Tom Jones!
