    Very quiet and peaceful and dog friendly. Pool and saunas were great and so close. Would definitely come back.

  • "We had a absolutely fantastic time, my dogs loved the beach."

    Will deffinetly be booking again. Loved being able to go swimming too. The only thing that would makes this property better would be if the garden was enclosed for the dogs, but they got more walks so I think they were happy anyway. A good place to take your dogs if your hungry is Victoria Mill tea rooms in Bridlington. They are very dog friendly.

    It's a lovely property which is very well maintained, clean and has all your home from home needs. Having Netflix and also very good WiFi was another bonus. The Bay is a lovely resort and the onsite facilities are all very good...and also very close by to the cottage.! The beach is also beautiful. Spans for miles and we spent lots of time on it with our dog who loved it. Filey is 3 km away on the beach and makes for a great walk there and back. The owners were very helpful and sent us lots of information before hand so we knew what to expect. We would highly recommend White Rose Cottage and The Bay resort and will definitely be returning.

    The house was gorgeous, warm, and had everything you could possibly need for a short or lengthy stay. It was clean and spacious and would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay. Our only criticism is that the bed was very hard and we struggled to sleep. The house was fantastic but we really didn't sleep at all. A more comfortable bed would make us book this house time and time again.

  • "Very nice and well appointed house in a great location."

    The Cantrell heating is controlled by a locked hive system which meant we couldn’t increase the setting on cool nights, or turn on the towel rail to dry off our towels after showering. There isn’t a single light in the house which is bright enough to read by in the evening either, which could be easily rectified. Final niggle was that in supplying an abundance of kitchen utensils, crockery and gadgets to cater for an army, there was no cupboard space left for our own food supplies. These are minor issues, which I mention as having paid for a first class experience, it took the edge off. I fully expect to return next year and see the owner has taken steps to address the issues.

    Dear Mrs Killerby, Thank you for your feedback. I'm very sorry that your expectations were not met. We will review al of the points raised , we will look to increase the brightness of our low energy bulbs and review the number of utensils in the cupboards. Our Hive system is preset according to the time of year. You should have been able to change the temperature at the themostat , which is situated in the hallway .if this was not possible then please let me know and I will arrange for a British Gas engineer to go out as soon as possible and fix the thermostat. We are really grateful for your feedback as We strive to ensure that all our guests have an outstanding visitor experience. Kindest regards, Helen and Richard Property Owner

Only one thing missing is a shop on site, there is a chemist which sells essentials such as milk and bread but we went in and they had sold out. Tesco is only 3 miles away though and there's a spa shop a mile away but sometimes you don't always want to take your car out. We stayed at White Rose Cottage, would recommend this Cottage to everyone. Weather was beautiful. This is our fourth visit to Filey. For somewhere different to eat and it is dog friendly, we would recommend Royal Oak pub, Hummanby, there's a soft play upstairs, park and lovely food. Overall we had a very nice holiday.

The Bay as a site is well kept. we used the pub for a drink but lots were having meals there they looked good. the swimming pool has long opening hours and the times we used it, it was clean and of a reasonable temperature. i consider a week at white rose cottage to be good value for money and we certainly were not dissapointed

The property

Filey 3 miles.

White Rose Cottage is a fabulous excuse to explore the stunning Yorkshire Coast and beautiful countryside.

The cottage has been designed, furnished and equipped with the holidaymaker in mind ensuring a most enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing stay whilst here at The Bay.

The open plan sitting room offers a spacious and comfortable living area, complete with dining table.

French doors lead out onto a small, private south-facing patio, an ideal place to sit and relax, whilst enjoying a morning coffee and planning your day ahead.

The cottage sits at the heart of this pretty holiday village, with all the facilities within a short stroll and with private access to a glorious golden sandy beach.

With a great choice of activities on your doorstep, including fishing, bike hire, tennis and a putting green, you can leave your car parked up for your entire stay!

There is a pub nearby serving food, or for a more intimate dining experience there is an Italian restaurant.

The Blue Flag beach provides a five mile playground and is perfect for flying a kite, snoozing in a deckchair or building a sandcastle.

A delightful walk along the shore will bring you into Filey, which is refreshingly different and after one visit you are sure to be addicted.

The town offers something for everyone, but it remains unspoilt and retains an Edwardian elegance.

There is a great choice of places to eat, some quirky shops for a memorable souvenir and Filey's very own Coble Landing with its colourful boats and kiosks.

For children, the nearby Playdale Farm Park is a must, come rain or shine as there is a huge indoor play area and interactive paddocks where children can join in and feed the animals.

The countryside around and about provides an endless choice for walkers, cyclists, history buffs and anyone wanting to enjoy the beauty all around.

The surrounding area has so much to offer, with the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Wolds, cliff-top walks at Flamborough Head and stately homes such as Burton Agnes Hall and Sledmere House to visit.

A well-placed cottage, with no shortage of things to do!

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, 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.
