    Only thing to report was the shower head in the main bathroom wasn’t functioning properly, however after a few adjustments my husband managed to get it to work.

  • "This was our fourth time to Flip Flops but sorry to say it will be our last the first day we arrived we could watch TV but then that night the TV downstairs and upstairs wouldn’t work we contacted the owner and also went to speak to the receptionist at the bay who wasn’t very helpful at all the owner did apologise and offered for us to go out for a meal to compensate but nothing happened."

    we was issued that it would be fixed on the Monday which it wasn’t had to keep contacting the owner who could only apologise but my husband is highly vulnerable so we don’t tend to go out much to pubs and restaurants so all week we had no TV to watch at all we actually left a day early than planned because we just couldn’t stand the boredom anymore it’s a lot of money to stay at the bay and on an evening I like to relax and watch TV but we couldn’t do that we just felt like we were left to get on with it it wouldn’t have been so bad it was offered a part refund but nothing even if it was out of their control they should’ve offered something but since returning and looking at other peoples feedback it seems to be a common problem so we wasn’t happy at all. The owner suggested we go to the pub to watch TV but he wouldn’t advise it because the drinks were so expensive . We couldn’t of gone there every night. The man who works at the bay did come out to have a look at the TV I don’t think he knew what the problem was said he would go away and get back to me which he didn’t . Went back to reception again to ask what was happening, so all in all not a good experience and it did ruin our holiday because we were just waiting every day to see if it will come back on. . We also had no water the first night problem somewhere in Filey and they did send us some bottled waters out so we could flush the toilet . So all in all not a happy holiday sorry to say .

    Although other people on The Bay have suffered with a lack of TV signal this is the only real issue we have had. We tried to resolve this with The Bay but it was out of our control. Our offer of money for a meal still stands (we have no details to be able to transfer the money to you). We are in the hands of The Bay to some extend but have now researched a way around the issue, I know this doesn't help yourselves, but we are getting an wi-fi enabled TV installed so we don't have to rely solely on The Bays signal in the future. We are truly sorry that we could not get the matter resolved during your stay and regret that we have lost a valued customer. Property Owner

We totally understand the later check in times because of covid but what may be a good idea is a text message to say the house is ready as the cleaning could of been done first thing but we are having to wait until four 0 clock . Feel like we loose half a day as check out is at 10 . Lovely house and great for us as not far from walking the dog down to the beach. Can’t wait to return. Always clean around the bay .

    The owners care about their guests and the cleaning staff set a high standard (it was spotless, thank you). We and our little dog enjoyed walking on the sands of Filey Bay and Bridlington (whole cooked lobster bought for £12 at Arnolds fish merchants). The grounds of The Bay are well looked after and nearly all visitors staying smile and say hello. To say we enjoyed this stay would be an understatement. Thank you all.

  • "The freestanding shower was tiny, none of us could shower comfortably and the fixed shower head meant that again, none of us could rinse away soap suds, shampoo, sand etc."

    , etc. Like wise the shower over the bath was also a fixed head and the bath was quite high to climb in and out of with no hand rail. The built in wardrobe in both bedrooms had a lot of items already in them (towels, bedding, stairgates etc) made full hanging space impossible and no room to store suitcases. Blackout curtains would have been a bonus. Downstairs wasn't too bad apart from four adults, two two-seater settees but nowhere to put a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Cleanliness was a big issue. We moved the badly frayed rug so we wouldn't trip on it and there was a lot of sand, dust etc that we swept away. But the general cleanliness was lacking, thick dust on the towel radiator in the master bedroom, on the lamps, skirting board. Ornaments were dirty - did we really need them? Sorry about my rant but I needed to say this. We've had four visits to The Bay and will be coming back but not to Flip Flops - shame because we had always thought how nice it looked when we went on beach walks. And last but not least there was no clothes airer so items that couldn't go in the tumble drier had to be draped over radiators, not a pretty sight!

    This is an important facit to the site and customers using the site should be warned of this. I hope that the site is not being greedy and building more properties on this land? Beautifully clean and fresh smelling property. The freezer was a great adition. Constructive criticism: a shower shelf inside the en-suite shower cubicle would be a great help, as shampoo etc have to kept on the floor - wet hair every shower and not everyone wants to wash their hair every day! :)

Freshly decorated with a light and airy theme, this accommodation is ideal for families to visit all year round.

The open plan sitting room is elevated by a woodburner and feature fireplace so you can cosy up at night time and watch TV.

A dining table lies to the other side of the room ideal for enjoying breakfast or dinner, next to the French doors which overlook the small patio outside.

A well-equipped kitchen is tucked into the layout.

Wander up the twisted stairway into the zip/link king-size bedroom pieced together with neat bedside tables and neutral décor.

A balcony lies outside the room, perfect for sitting out on a sunny day.

The family bathroom contains a pure white finish, with a lovely shower over the bath, and contemporary fittings.

A king-size bedroom is just as refreshing, with storage space and soft décor, leading through to a classic en-suite shower room.

Outside you can relax on the patio or balcony for a delightful afternoon, or why not stroll into the town of Filey with its many characterful attractions, shops, and walking paths?

Set beside the magnificent Filey Bay, a long stretch of sand, with its shallow rock pools to the north, and a short drive will take you to Scarborough for all those family activities.

This is a retreat not to be missed.

About the location

FILEY

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.
