    “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 ...

    , 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!

The property

This pretty detached cottage is located on The Bay, near Filey.

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 7.5 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, with donkey rides available on the beach, children’s play areas, 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.
