“Really really lovely holiday, perfect cottage, great location.”

We wanted a relaxing holiday and that's what we got, The cottage was spot on, warm, clean, simple and had everything we needed for our holiday. The beds and sofa's are nice and comfy. dishwasher and washing machine are a bonus if you need them.
Lorraine and Ian were very accomodating and helpful.- you have a lovely holiday home.

THE COMPLEX>>>>I wasn't sure what to expect from the complex but it was lovely. Obviously as it was the first week of December it was very quiet on site but I got the impression it would never be a rowdy place, very homely. Lacks a shop for basics but Tesco is less than a 10 min drive and there's a petrol station nearby.
The pool is basic but just enough to keep the kids occupied for an hour or 2, and the range of activities offered is great and fairly priced, our eldest and my husband enjoyed the archery despite it being bitterly cold £10 pp for an hour.

WHAT TO DO >>>>>We took our wellies and made the most of welly walks on the beach. you can walk to Filey lifeboat station in an hour (with a 4 yr old) we got hot choc and watched a seal playing in the incoming tide then got the bus back.
also within easy reach are nice short walks ideal for young kids or cold days ...
filey brigg , Dalby forest (£4 parking all day) we did the gruffalo walk near the visitor centre, Danes Dyke, Bridlington bird of prey and animal park was well worth the money - talks or displays every half hour and they have a hands on approach to the animals which our little one especially enjoyed -feeding wallabies, pigs, emus, sheep, held lizards ,snakes ,owls etc.

our 11 yr old phoned gran on the 2nd day and said 'oh, we're definatley booking again for next year!'

“I think the house definitely gets a 5”
Reviewed July 11, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The house was excellent, clean, well furnished and conveniently located for the pool, pub and Italian... with 2 children under 5 it provided a perfect 'home from home'.

The Bay village is very quiet, almost has a 'Stepford' feel about it, as it's so clean, tidy, well kept and did I mention quiet. I think it could benefit from having an on-site general store and maybe a few more things to do with the little ones, but that shouldn't detract from the property itself.

The beach is great, you'd assume it was private and it is very clean... worth noting it's a 15 minute walk with children and the last 150m down is increasingly steep, buggies are difficult, we used a baby carrier that made it a lot easier.

Filey centre is a 10 minute drive away, but well worth a visit... nice 'mini seafront' and the shops are like steeping back in time.

There are plenty of things to do nearby, just not on site... so be prepared to travel for 10/20 minutes but places like Playdale Farm Park are worth it with the children.

“Great ...but”
Reviewed May 13, 2016 for a stay in October 2015

I have to say I couldn't fault the house, very clean, very nicely decorated, games and dvds included.
Pub was bang across the road so brilliant location on the estate.
I think I would have been very sad to have ended up at the top entry or even down one of the side roads.
The beach is advertised as a short walk ...however this was my main gripe....it was a long walk and a long way down a hill and was very hard to get up and down to it with a buggy. I wouldn't ever describe it as a short walk.
Would I stay here again ? Probably not I would choose somewhere on the sea front so I didn't have to drive to get around, however I have to say you do struggle finding as good quality and modern properties more centrally located, so if you want modern housing estate near a good pub and happy to walk and drive about then this is a really nice place.
Would I recommend the property? YES it was very very good

“BEAUTIFUL AND PERFECT IN EVERY WAY....”
Reviewed October 7, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

this place is beautiful, has everything you could possibly need, also is very clean and cute; The pub and cafe were great, just a few steps from the cottage, there is a pharmacy as well and is very convenient, the walk to the beach is relaxing and the view is amazing, the pool was fun, they have different activities at the gym as well. The best part was the kindness and courtesy of everyone there.Thank you Lorraine. its a perfect place for a family or a couple.
