  • "Stayed at Nantucket Cottage for Easter 2022 with my husband, 5 year old and dog."

    It was very comfortable, clean and set in a lovely spot at The Bay. The bed was comfortable and we had everything we needed to make our stay stress free and relaxing. Only slight downside was the shower that just needs a little attention due to age. Would recommend and considering staying again next year.

  • "This is a great cottage and very comfortable."

    It’s been well looked after and one of the best holiday cottages we’ve stayed in over the years. The beds are super comfy which really helps too! It’s also well kitted out. The cottage location on the resort is great and we liked that the whole site is so well kept. The over all standard of cleanliness was good however some attention to detail would make it excellent: the kitchen cupboard doors need a good clean - we found them all sticky; the oven needs a good clean too, or else replace the shelves which look dirty/rusty; the pots and pans also should be checked before arrival - we found both pots with the remains of some one else’s food. The cooker extractor fan does not work - not big issue as we opened the window, but given the open plan layout it would be useful.. This is a small point but the owners information pack should be left on display and needs updated; we found it in the cutlery drawer; the Bayside Cafe no longer exists! And finally ahead of arrival, it would be good to know you can book swimming slots up to 3 weeks ahead of your stay. We were not aware of this and resulted in all swimming slots being fully booked for the duration of our stay. Our 11year old was very disappointed by this and so we’re we. As said above it’s a lovely spacious cottage especially the open plan living room, dining, kitchen area (don’t think the pictures do it justice) and we’d stay here again. Thanks

    Clean and well appointed. The Bay site is spotless, however the only source of food is the John Paul Jones, the cafe is currently closed, the food and service at the pub are both substandard and best avoided.

    Very relaxing, lovely long walks along the beach, dog loved it. Cottage was nice, everything you needed was there. Just a few things I could comment on! The overflow pipe in bath is not connected, while having a bath there was water coming through kitchen ceiling where lights are present. A very bad health and safety issue! Small toilet down stair has a funny musty smell in it, not very pleasant, think it could be coming from mop and bucket which is kept in there. Kettle was full of lime scale, needed de scaled. Apart from these few things all your needs for a relaxing holiday in Nantucket cottage were covered.

The property

Filey 2.5 miles.

This modern, mid-terrace property is situated in The Bay holiday village, within easy reach of the seaside town of Filey.

With excellent on-site facilities, it provides a superb base for an enjoyable, traditional family holiday, with close proximity to both the beach and some wonderful countryside.

With a nautical theme throughout, there is a spacious open plan living area, with a well-equipped modern kitchen, comfortable seating and French doors opening onto a small, south-facing private patio.

Upstairs are two bright and airy bedrooms and a bathroom, with an additional cloakroom on the ground floor.

With a cheerful, contemporary feel, the property is just a five-minute walk from the holiday village pub, cafe and pharmacist.

Surrounded by extensive communal grounds, with picnic areas and two lakes, it has a host of outdoor activities to partake in, including fishing, tennis and bike hire.

Guests are able to book scuba diving, archery and fencing lessons, whilst the indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room will be a big hit with everyone.

A pleasant walk brings you to a long, sandy and safe beach, whilst the quaint seaside resort of Filey has fine promenades, lovely ornamental gardens and a unique coble landing for fishing vessels.

Why not explore Filey Brigg with its rock pools, or take an invigorating clifftop walk with panoramic views along the coastline?

Nearby Bempton RSPB reserve is well worth a visit - especially in the summer months, to see the puffins, kittiwakes and gannets, whilst culture lovers will enjoy the surrounding stately homes, such as Sledmere House, Sewerby Hall and Burton Agnes Hall.

With something for everyone in the vicinity, the property is an ideal choice.

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.
