We stayed in a Chatham property in October for 4 nights (Mon-Fri). It was our Scottish October break so the site was pretty quiet, I'm sure it would be much busier in peak holiday periods.
Our house had 3 bedrooms and was lovely, warm and spacious. The fixtures and fittings were of a high standard and we had plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 kids (aged 7 and 4). The overhead rainfall showers were fantastic, felt really quite spoiled and am now looking into getting one!
We used the pool and it was lovely, not too cold and plenty of room to actually swim in. There was a section cordoned off for people wanting to do some serious swimming, a good idea. You need a £1 coin for the lockers in the changing rooms.
The walk to the beach is lovely as is the beach, perfect for dog owners. We used the chemist when we arrived to stock up on some things, friendly staff and although a small range of items they were reasonably priced. We had takeaway pizza from the Italian cafe one night and it was delicious, would recommend it. We didn't eat in the pub, ran out of time.
The Bay is an excellent base to visit lots of different attractions in the area - we visited Scarborough, Whitby, Staithes (where Old Jack's Boat is filmed - kids are cBeebies fans!), Beverley, York, Bridlington and Malton.
We will definitely return here probably to the same accommodation type as well as it provided lots of space and had all the mod cons you could ever need. The Bay is absolutely perfect if you are a dog owner (we're not), it's really geared up for them.
