About the Owner

Lavender cottage is owned by Chris and Jayne who live in Derbyshire.

We first came across The Bay in 2011 after taking a day off work to walk our German short-haired pointer along the beach from Hunmanby Gap to Filey to have some of the town's famous fish and chips. On seeing The Bay we fell in love with the place straight away.

We bought the cottage in late 2011 and have added many extras to make the cottage a real home from home and to ensure your holiday is as enjoyable as possible.

We visit the cottage as often as we can to escape everyday life as it's a great place to relax and unwind. We hope you enjoy the comfort of our cottage and enjoy the superb facilities that The Bay has on offer.

If you have any questions please get in touch.

A relaxing break in a lovely clean cottage

  • 4 of 5

I was pleasantly surprised with both Lavender Cottage and the Bay complex itself.

The cottage was clean and well equipped, with everything you neede to have an enjoyable stay. I liked the fact that the cottage was situated away from the centre of the complex as it was nice and quiet.

We tried both the pub and the Italian on the site and both were friendly with nice food.

It is a nice place from which to explore the beautiful coastline and beaches, my particular favourite being Sandsend.

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a little gem! Our 2nd time here and will return again and again in the future. The facilities are of a very high quality and standard with all the thoughtful touches that make it a true home from home. We were lacking nothing during our stay and enjoyed every moment. The walk to the beautiful local unspoilt beach through the complex is a pleasure we took every day. Filey is a very short drive away and other nice beauty spots in easy distance. A very relaxing and welcome break again - highly recommended - Thank you

Very cosy, well-kept modern cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfect for a relaxing break by the sea. The house itself was everything you want in a holiday cottage - comfortable, clean, modern and stocked with more games, DVDs and books than you could get through in a year, let alone a single holiday. The Bay is a great place to stay too, lovely and peaceful with a good pub, and only a short walk from the beach. The owners were really friendly and helpful and returned our housekeeping deposit very quickly after departure. All in all a 5 star experience.

Lovely cottage, very homely and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Situated in "The Bay" holiday village which has leisure facilities, meadow walks and is close to the beach. It is ideal for families, dog owners and couples. Lavender Cottage has been thoughtfully equipped with books, games and DVD's by the owners Chris and Jayne. We visited local resorts such as Bridlington, Filey, Scarborough, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and there are many other local attractions. We enjoyed a meal at the onsite pub the "John Paul Jones", where dogs and children are welcome. Our dog Rosie, enjoyed the walk on the beach from The Bay to Filey, which is about 30 to 40 minute walk. Fortunately we had lovely weather and went on a cruise in Scarborough on the "Regal Lady" where Rosie was made welcome! This was our fourth visit to Lavender Cottage and we are already looking for to the next.

Thank you Chris and Jayne. Best wishes Kathryn and Nigel.

Excellent cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent cottage with all the comforts of home. We booked 2 cottages for the family and as it turned out they were identical. Lavender Cottage was much more homely with the addition of ornaments, pictures etc. Everything was to a very high standard. Unfortunately it isn't available for our dates next year or we would certainly have re-booked. We have been to The Bay twice and our daughters and family joined us this year. They are already looking at going again next year.

Location

From the Owner

We know the area well from family holidays and we've had many lovely times visiting the beautiful North Yorkshire coastline and roaming the surrounding moors. The area has something for everyone from stunning scenery and glorious stretches of sand to family-friendly seaside resorts and tiny fishing villages. The cottage is new and modern but with a traditional look that blends into the surroundings. It provides a peaceful retreat with plenty of on-site facilities. The beach, wild flower meadow, lakes and facilities such as a leisure centre, swimming pool and pub are all a short walk away. The location is within easy access to Filey, the North Yorkshire Moors, bustling towns of Scarborough and Bridlington and a bit further afield Whitby and York.

Facilities

From the Owner

In all seasons it's a great place to get away from it all. It has a very relaxed feel but there is plenty to do if that's what you prefer. A stroll along the beach, dip in the indoor heated swimming pool, and drink in the pub are all a short walk away. The Bay is a safe family friendly environment with 24 hour on-site security. The cottage is in a great location with open aspect and sunny terrace. It's well decorated, furnished and has everything you need. We've also left a selection of books, DVDs, Wii, board games and beach accessories for our guests to use.
