“A beautiful home from home - so relaxing and very special”
Reviewed March 27, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We have just returned from Roobarb's Retreat - it is a beautiful well equipped house in a lovely situation. There are lovely walks on the beach and in the Meadows (our two dogs were in 7th heaven) Our 15 month grandson loved his lovely bedroom and going to the beach with his new bucket and spade. We had an excellent meal at The John Paul Jones (grown ups, baby and dogs made very welcome) and before we came home had a hearty breakfast at the Italian Cafe - again all made very welcome. Even the weather didn't disappoint - we had breakfast and lunch outside in the garden. So everything just perfect (including the treats on arrival - thank you Zoe)

“Perfect holiday home in a fantastic location!”

After having a baby 8 months ago we wanted somewhere to go in England for our 1st Family holiday. After finding some great places on the internet we were disappointed to find most we wanted didn't take dogs! Then we stumbled across Roobarbs Retreat, what a find!! We couldn't have asked for more, not only is Filey a great location you also have Scarborough and Bridlington within a 30 minute drive. The cottage is also situated in a wonderful little village of holiday homes with its own pub, pool and Italian restaurant/cafe! Roobarbs retreat really is a home from home, as soon as you step in you don't want to leave. We couldn't fault anything the cottage had everything we needed and more. We loved it that much that once we got home we were already planning when we can go back!! Thank you for a brilliant holiday!!!

“Fabulous Easter weekend break”

This was our 2nd stay here. 6 adults and 2 dogs. There are not many cottages on the coast which will accommodate this number. The weather was brilliant so we had plenty of walks on the beach and only used the car in the morning to quickly buy a paper. We ate at the pub last year and was a little disappointed so this time I cooked meals, the cottage is so well equipped this was easy. There are many extras in the cottage such as DVD's. books, games, magazines, WIFI and an I pod dock. A great time was had by all of us and we look forward to coming back for a 3rd visit next year.

“Warm, welcoming, happy house by the sea”
Reviewed December 10, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

person found this review helpful

We have stayed at the Bay a few times over the years and always in Winter and have watched it grow. Whilst the building work may bother some, our children have always found it entertaining.

This is the first time we have booked with an independent owner and not through one of the large holiday Companies and what a difference. Roobarb retreat feels like a home, well looked after and kitted out with decent quality furniture and bedding and enough crockery to feed the site from.

Next time we plan to stay at the Bay, this cottage will be the first we will look to book as it's location cannot be bettered with just a short run in swim shorts in the freezing winter time!

Thank you so much for the kind review, it has really made my day! You left the cottage in an excellent state and will be welcome back anytime! I have been managing my cottage independently for almost a year now and it has been hard work but very rewarding to receive such positive comments from my guests. My family and I love visiting The Bay and it is great sharing the cottage with others who enjoy it just as much, and treat it with the same respect.

“Ideal”
Reviewed February 11, 2013 for a stay in July 2012

people found this review helpful

Staying in this house was ideal. It is very conveniently situated in 'The Bay' being such a short walk to the swimming pool, leisure centre,pub and cafe yet well away from the noise of the main road. It is an end property so adjacent to the relevant parking and there are no properties opposite overlooking the back garden so it is more secluded than other sites in the complex. We found it relaxing, quiet and well equipped.
'The Bay' has a great choice of activities, we sampled walking on the beach and in the nearby fields, swimming in the pool, playing tennis and mini golf and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
