    “Having previously owned a caravan next door on the Haven Park, Primrose Valley, with the problems that it brought , it made a refreshing change to stay somewhere where we could relax and feel that we had an holiday.”

    Lillipad Cottage was an excellent choice being located in a quiet part on The Bay. It was clean, comfortable and provided everything we needed during our stay. It was nice to able to leave our bedroom windows open on a warm humid night without being disturbed by drunks, screaming women and noisy kids running around after 11 pm at night. It was comforting to see a visible security patrol which you would regularly see at the entrance to The Bay. All in all The Bay was a great place to stay with not over the top facilities which provided a nice family pub, cafe restaurant, swimming pool, sauna , Gym and activities for children. Lillipad Cottage was within easy walking distance of all these facilities with an added bonus of easy access to the beach and the lovely Filey Bay. There were two car parking spaces alloted to this cottage with further parking nearby so you can leave the car without any worries and go off for the day. Ideal base for exploring the north Yorkshire Coastline with must visits to Flamborough, Bempton Cliffs, Sewerby and Burton Agnes Hall, Robin Hoods Bay, Whitby, North York Moors, Pickering and North Yorks Railway, Scarborough and Bridlington which are all within a short drive. Thank you to the owners of Lillipad Cottage for providing a lovely holiday home which allowed us to have a relaxing holiday We will definitely be returning next year.

The property

This beautiful cottage is situated on The Bay holiday village, just three miles from the seaside town of Filey, and is just the ticket for exploring the stunning Yorkshire coastline and beautiful surrounding countryside.

Lilipad Cottage provides fabulous open plan living, yet is a cosy retreat whatever time of year you choose to visit.

French doors lead to a private patio overlooking the beautifully landscaped grounds.

This idyllic coastal cottage is close to a wonderful Blue Flag beach and the golden sands here seem endless.

The facilities at The Bay include an indoor swimming pool, children’s pool, sauna, steam room and gym, as well as a tennis court and archery range.

Lilipad Cottage is fully-equipped for producing gourmet meals, however within a stone's throw is a great pub and Italian restaurant serving meals.

Ideally suited to families, friends or couples wanting to get away, the two bedrooms make this cottage a perfect choice.

Filey is an unchanged Edwardian resort famed for its mile after mile of smooth sandy beach, its elegant and historic promenade, its famous Brigg and tasty fish and chips.

The entire Yorkshire coastline provides some of the UK's most dramatic and rugged scenery.

Whether you want to immerse yourself in the fascinating world of the rock pool, create a sandcastle masterpiece, head up the coast to Whitby where you can climb the 199 steps to Whitby Abbey, no day will be the same.

Inland, the landscape offers a different experience but equally inspiring.

The North York Moors provide some serious walking and cycling and now and again you will spot a plume of smoke as the steam railway chug-chugs its way through the tree lined valleys between the lovely market town of Pickering and the dramatic coastal town of Whitby.

A wonderful holiday base all year round.

About the location


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.

Please note: the swimming pool will be closed for refurbishment from 4th November until 15th December 2019.
