I was really looking forward to our 3 night break in Filey. I grew up holidaying there every year, and wanted to show my family around. The Bay was a perfect base, just 5 minutes drive from town, or a good 30 minute walk along the beach into town.
Harlequin cottage was perfect. Spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming. With every little thing thought of..the little extras like tea and coffee supplied, and lovely fluffy towels were much appreciated. Our children loved the games, books and tv in their room!
The pool is is great, though we didn't try any of the extra activities. We did try the Italian cafe on site. Don't expect a restaurant as it really is a cafe. But the food was great with huge portions! 2 adult meals, 2 children's meals, 4 drinks including 2 alcoholic £35.. Good value.
There is a lot of building still going on on the site, but it didn't spoil things at all.
If you have never been to 'sterchi's' chocolates in Filey town, go! We've been customers over 40 years, and it's still as good as ever!
Filey town itself seems to be frozen in time.. Much of it is exactly the same as it was 40 years ago, which of course, I loved, and got very nostalgic!

My daughter loved it so much, she cried when we left! We'll be back !

The cottage is lovely, set close enough to the sea for long walks to Filey centre. The actual cottage itself is top of the range with everything we could have asked for already thought about. 5* all round with a great time had by all. We will be returning soon.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

We had a lovely stay and were sad to leave. We've stayed at The Bay many times and would rate this cottage as one of the best. Compared to some of the other 2 bedroom cottages, this one is more spacious. But more importantly the owner has put a lot of thought into making sure that guests have everything they... more
