Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay, the cottage is well looked after, modern, clean and nicely decorated.

It had a fully equipped kitchen, and nice dining and living area, bedrooms were very nice.. The cottage is set in lovely grounds and was a short walk to the beach.

The owner was lovely and left us a bottle of wine, milk and muffins. There was also cleaning products, tea towels for us to use, as well as other items such as buckets and spades, etc that we were able to use.

We had a great stay and would definitely recommend it and hope to come back soon.

Ivy Cottage; fabulously furnished, beautiful and clean, couldn't be better.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect. Everything we might have wanted or needed was there. Beautifully decorated and clean throughout. We couldn't have hoped for a nicer place to stay. Highly recommended. Perfect location for a walk down to the quiet beach. Close to Brid and Scarborough. Wonderful place to return to after a busy day with our 7 year old. Everything was easy to arrange with the owners. Great holiday.

Wish we were there for longer!!

  • 5 of 5

Ivy Cottage is a perfect base for visiting Filey and the East Coast.

It's extremely well equipped with everything you need, beautifully furnished to a high standard and spotlessly clean.

You can get on with your holiday straight away thanks to the owner supplying tea, coffee, sugar, milk....and even a very nice bottle of wine!!

The cottage makes the holiday, our only regret was that we weren't there for longer.

Fantastic family holiday cottage at The Bay

  • 5 of 5

We have just stayed here at Ivy cottage for a second time in two years and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The cottage is so well kitted out that you really need to take very little. Kitchen even has barbecue tools, washing up liquid, foil, dishwasher tablets etc... Lots of baby and child equipment and toys eg balls, buckets and spades, fishing nets, windbreak, stairgate, munchkin travel booster seat. It's so handy to be able to pack as light as possible for a self-catering break! It is comfy and beautifully decorated. The owners leave the cottage immaculate, so tidy and well stocked with extras like handwash and shower gel as well as the much-appreciated tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and wine!

The cottage itself is in a nice part of the bay as it looks out onto a nice quiet grassy area onto the meadows. Well located for Filey and Bridlington and the Bay is a great place to holiday. The only slight disappointment was that you can no longer drive down to the beach via the private road.... I'm heavily pregnant so was banking on this! It's a shame The Bay can't provide residents with a key fob for access to drive down. It's not far to walk though if you have no problems getting around, and it didn't affect our very enjoyable stay :)

Thanks to the owners for excellent communication throughout and for letting us know we could arrive over an hour sooner than expected as the cottage was ready for us early.

Owner's Response: Hi Mary. It was lovely to welcome you back again. We have so many returning Guests now, I think we must going a long way be making your holidays special- which is our aim. I must also apologise for not informing you of the beach transport which can be booked free from reception. This is specifically for our Guests whom for whatever reason find the walk a little too much... It's only a 15 minute stroll, and a beautiful one at that, but I take your point that this particular time for you was tiring... I also liked it when you could drive down- but unfortunately it was spoiled by people who were not Guests on The Bay- road racing down . It was felt that pedestrianising it would ensure the safety of everyone. Hope you are all well and continuing to enjoy your Summer. I look forward to welcoming you back once again soon. Warmest regards Andree

Everything we could want!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend at Ivy cottage and would definitely recommend it. It was very clean and tidy and also a gift for us when we arrived. Lots of fields close by for our boys to play and also lots of games and toys for them to play with in the cottage. Filey is just a short drive and we hope to return soon.

This Beautiful Cottage is a real home from home, used personally by our own family.. We were the very first family to buy on The Bay. It was originally the former Butlins Site and my father was Manager on the Camp back in the 50s - the Hey Day of Butlins !!!!!! .. My dad proposed to my mum on the Camp. Now both my parents are no longer with us, this place still remains a very special place to our family. Children and now grandchildren....
