“Great place and stay”
Reviewed 19 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

A fab stay a serendipity. The house is lovely, comfy, warm (for those who stay in winter) and very well equipped. The owner includes lots of little extras that make your stay just that little bit easier. We will definitely return.

The site facilities are also good with something for all ages and great access to the beach.

Thank you for an enjoyable visit

“Returned again”
Reviewed 10 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Booked an extended weekend break with Deb, 4 nights Fri through until Tuesday which was great for a short break into half term. Upon arrival milk was already in the fridge (a lovely thought) along with a few other cupboard essentials which you don't get with other self catering rentals. The weather was kind but the house was ever so warm anyway. Bedding, towels and toilet rolls were provided, another thing some rentals don't offer. Use of the pool, steam room and sauna is included as long as you use the card provided in the accommodation. Parking is beside the house, the pub and pool facilites just a short walk from the front door. Filey is a lovely walk along the beach (approx 3 miles) - certainly gets colour in the cheeks just make sure you check tide times!! Whitby is approx 50 mins away and Bridlington/Scarborough are approx 20-30 mins by car.
All in all a great base and another enjoyable stay. We hope to return again.

“Lovely holiday home”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Serendipity was a good holiday home, clean and tidy with the essentials left including towels which was great. Deb was excellent with communication and directions.
Beds were all made up and plenty of storage space. Kitchen well stocked too.
There is no wifi and the neither myself or my husband could get very good signal on phones which meant it was hard to get mobile data to search for places open prices etc although there was plenty of leaflets left in the house for places to visit.

Although thehouse itself was very good, not sure we would return to The Bay again. Location is great for accessibility to area and the private beach access is good but facilities for young children weren't good. The pool was freezing and always very busy too the point i felt they had let too many people in the pool. Also the outside play area was rubbish, hardly anything there. All the sporting activities for were ages 8 and above so not much option for my sons aged 6 and 4.
We had a wet week which didnt help as if it was dry then would have been on the beach the whole time and not needed other facilities.

“Great holiday”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Just returned from a weeks stay at serendipity with my grandchildren and the holiday started as soon as we walked in, it was so clean I relaxed immediately. There is everything you could need in the house in fact I think the kitchen was better equipped than my own. Realy enjoyed it grandchildren wanted to stay longer, I hope we will be making a return stay soon.

“Perfect Holiday Home For Rest and Relaxation”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was out third trip to the Bay complex and i must say that the Serendipity cottage exceeded expectations. We had a fantastic time, the owner kept us well informed before arrival, and when we got there, the house was kept to a very high standard and was just like home.

We appreciated the extra touches, tea and coffee along with other essentials (milk, toilet rolls, kitchen rolls, towels, condiments,etc..) was greatly appreciated and we felt as though the owner was taking great pride in this accommodation as well as looking after the guests.

The location is fantastic, with the beautiful Filey beach a few minutes walk away, and the complex provides decent food and drinks in the local pub. You can always relax in the leisure complex which is also to a high standard.

Had a fantastic holiday and would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone wishing to stay in the Bay area.
