Short 3 Day Break
We had a lovely few days away and this lovely cottage was a great base for our stay. Great communication and flexibility from the owners took away any hassles prior to arriving and on leaving. Thanks for a nice stay.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent Stay
We stayed here over new year 2019 - 2020 and had an absolutely fantastic stay. The communication from Andree was second to none and arrived to 4 pints of milk and a treat on the side in the kitchen. The house was spotless throughout and had all the things you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. We met Andree during our stay at The Bay and you could see she feel cares about all of her guests and her homes on site. The house is a less than 2 minute walk to all the facilities onsite and approximately 10 - 15 minute walk via the footpath to the beach which our dogs loved. Will 100% rebook this property and recommend anyone of thinking about booking.. Do it, we guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

Lovely Family Break
We booked the cottage for 2 nights to allow us to visit family in Filey and celebrate my mums 72nd birthday ! The cottage had everything we could have wanted plus more. It is like home from home. We were left wine, milk and cookies as well as a birthday card for my mum which was so kind. The location is excellent we enjoyed lots of beach walks. The Bay Area is new and beautifully managed. We hope to use the cottage again next year.

5/5 Excellent

family holiday at Ivy cottage
I've title our stay family holiday as we had 2 adults 12yr old 9 yr old a newborn and a old dog. The owner had thought of everything from baby equipment to family board games and internet to keep our pre teen happy. Definitely home from home. spotless and clean We used all facilities from pub to pool. My boys did like the meals at The plough pub just down the road better then the one site pub think it was more to do with the pool table air hockey table but only 5 mins away. owner Andree and her husband were excellent from helping with the on line booking and emails to actually deliverering a baby chair for me. Loved the personal phone calls and the cookies and welcome pack( even the dog had a welcome pack ) on arrival.. The bay itself was clean andxwee kept plenty of parking and grass the play on or wslk the dog.keep up the good work x
