  • "A lovely decorated clean and well equipped cottage, we had a great new year and spent time exploring the local beaches with our kids."

    Cottage was cosy and spacious to return to at the end of the day. Kids loved being able to walk to the swimming pool each morning.

  • "Such a beautiful, well decorated, cosy cottage."

    Very well equipped and the little extras were a lovely touch. It had a real home from home feel. Our only suggestions would be, that the soap dispensers in both bathrooms were empty/near empty on our arrival. And The main bathroom could benefit from a small refresh. Other than that we had a amazing stay in a beautiful cottage. We have stayed at The Bay many times in the past and will definitely be booking Willow Cottage again.

  • "In general the property looks and feels tired and is in need of freshening up, paintwork/carpets."

    Upon entering the property there was an unpleasant odour. We discovered that the small under counter fridge was off and smelt rancid. We switched it back on but did not use at all due to smell and mould. The drains and under kitchen sink did not smell very good at all ,the downstairs toilet was smelly too. There were also dead and live insects in the light fitting in the toilet. Kitchen table and coffee table very sticky. Placemats and coasters stuck to them. There was a lack of “basics” which are usually provided in our experience. ie, some dishwasher tablets, dish cloth. Had to clean the bath before using , the non slip bath mat was dirty also and so was removed from bath had to use washing up liquid to clean as no cleaning products in property. Bedside cupboards and other surfaces were dusty. Bedding on main bed old and very discoloured and clearly wrong size for bed and duvet. Pillows lumpy. Not sure why the gas boiler was in a locked cupboard seems a little over the top. No contact number or communication from owner. Wanted to use vacuumed to hoover up dead spiders and webs in dining area but could not use as smelt disgusting. Iron and ironing board need replacing. Iron plate had a black coating and the wire worn and twisted. Ironing board threadbare. We had so many flies in property and were unable to have French doors open. Possibly to do with the communal refuse areas. Had to buy fly spray. Lack of parking in close proximity should be highlighted it was not an issue for us but maybe fir lesser able bodied.

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, this is the first we have heard of the issues. We encourage and require guests to contact the agency during your stay to report any issues, then we can rectify them for you. We would have endeavoured to send the cleaners back to do a re clean if the property was not up to our usual high standards. Regarding the smell, we would have appreciated this being reported so we could have solved the problem for you immediately. We have since investigated and can not find a smell in the property. There should have been an information folder left in the property and there also is a contact number on your correspondence emails for you to call YCC and Sykes, as well as the housekeeping companies phone number that was left in the property. We will take your comments on board and will look into replacing the items you mentioned such as the bedding/ pillows/ duvet, iron and ironing board, hoover. There is parking close by to the property, and all around the park. Property Owner

  • "Cosy, warm home."

    an enjoyable stay out of season - it was quiet. Busy periods would be very noisy. Parking not directly by house. Central for Filey, RSPB Bempton, Scarborough, Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay. Would be useful if the house had a "Disc" clock for parking in Whitby and Scarborough. We had a job to find a place that gave them out.

  • "Cottage was very clean and comfortable with everthing we needed."

    The only problem we had was that the oven did not heat up although the grill worked fine. We struggled to find TV channels we could access but who needs TV when on holiday. All in all a very good holiday.

  • "Our first impression wasn’t good it didn’t smell very fresh and smelt like a dog had been in the house."

    The house hadn’t been cleaned properly, long hairs everywhere, sticky hand prints on the patio doors, both tables were sticky and the mats stuck to them every time we used them, all of the cutlery and crockery had to go in the dish washer after we bought salt and dishwasher tablets, both settees had to be hovered as there were nuts and coco pops between the cushions. Bathroom up stairs wasn’t the best and had to be cleaned, down stairs bathroom and bedrooms were perfect. The house is in a great location and was perfect for our holiday after we had cleaned it. Oh and the TV only worked once with the normal channels.

    Thank you for your feedback. This property does not allow pets due to allergies so I am unsure what the smell is that you are referring to, we will investigate this further. I apologise that the cleaning was not up to our usual high standards, this is definitely something we will be bringing up to our housekeepers, but I am glad you still enjoyed your holiday, and all the area has to offer. Regarding the TV, it is a brand new smart TV in the property but due to the area, the signal, unfortunately, is not the best, and some days it can be better than others. Property Owner

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.
