“Beautiful location”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We stayed here for few days break whilst surfing in Scarborough as opposed to a caravan park. It truely was a relaxing place to stay and will be fantastic once complete. We stayed in a Plymouth apartment which was beautifully decorated and included free wifi. The resort is like a little housing estate with its own pub, cafe, pharmacy and leisure centre. The beach us a short walk away and there is a large meadow adjacent to it. Although not school holiday time, there were no screaming children and no tacky shops or evening entertainment to contend with in the pub. 10 mile drive to Scarborough but worth it.

My wife me and our two small dogs booked into the bay for a weeks stay. We had the first house on the entrance to the park. The house was very warm' clean and comfortable especially the beds.our place had the patio door opening onto the 50acre field brilliant for letting the dogs tire themselves out. It was so quiet no building noise at all although when we walked down to the beach quite a bit of building activity was going on. The pub is ok but nothing special but filey has some great eating places 5 minutes up the road. Our stay was in October so it was very quiet it suited us down to the ground. The houses just through the entrance offer the quietest stays because there is still building going on down near the pub. We can't wait for our next out of season stay it really was relaxing and peaceful.

Room Tip: Look at the site on google earth.

A last minute booking for June this year for a Friday to Monday booking.
Rang the Bay office direct, very efficiently dealt with, arrived next day to a two bedroomed house, immaculately clean, very well appointed - could not fault it.
Short walk through the village to a private beach access to wall on the wonderfully quiet beach.
This place really is quality, immaculately maintained grounds, imaginatively designed houses, all in a wonderful setting.

My family of 6 stayed in a Chatham7 for a week on a friday to friday booking. This was useful as we came from south manchester for a wedding on the saturday. The cottage was clean and very well equipped, with a wonderful nautical theme to the many paintings and decorations. As most of the properties seem to be privately owned but managed by Hoseasons, they are probably not all equipped to the same standard. The beds were comfortable and there was ample storage space in each of them.
The site is close to a long sandy beach, but it was very windy on the one sunny day we had. Its about a mile to walk to the beach but you can park quite close. Its possible to walk to Filey and back if the tides are in your favour.
There is a pub, cafe and pharmacy/shop on site. The pub meals started at around £10, but we didn't try any of them. We did occasionally snack in the cafe, and the burger meals and pizzas were ok. The shop only had limited stock and should really be upgraded to cater better for the expanding site. The next nearest shop was at the Jet garage nearby, with a large Tesco in Filey.
We took advantage of the gym, the aqua sessions in the pool and archery. The archery, fencing, tennis and putting were not free, but it was nice to have those options.
As the weather was not great we visited Scarborough, Pickering, Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Bridlington, and Bempton Cliffs to see the puffins, gannets, etc.
There was building work going on, and we weren't too happy with the 7:30 start. This included the man mowing the lawns!
My other gripe was lack of wifi on the site. There was only a wifi connection inside the pub or leisure centre, and with a weak 3G signal on the site I struggled to get an internet connection to find places to go on the wet days.
However, overall we though it was good value and we would consider going back again.

Room Tip: The Chatham7 at 41 Sunrise Drive is definitely worth booking.

How can this place be called a holiday park?
It is a glorified housing estate with poor facilities!
Unfinished buildings everywhere you look, builders, dumper trucks from 7.30 in the morning, when it rains the whole place is full of mud!
House was ok, certainly not luxury and certainly not clean, we had to have housekeeping to come and clean the whole place again as soon as we got the keys.
Activities?? What activities?? Small swimming pool, tennis court (you have to pay for this) and nothing much else. Over priced pub!
Only thing going for this housing estate is its location. We love the beach and Filey beach is beautiful.
Maybe when the building work is complete it may be a better place, but don't waste your money there are much nicer places to stay in the area, where you will feel you are on holiday and not on an unfinished housing estate.

My wife and I went to the Bay in Filey for a 3-night weekend break on a spur of the moment decision.

We had previously stayed here a couple of years ago and enjoyed our stay so much that when it appeared on a search through Hoseasons as a cheap "May" special offer we had no hesitation in booking it.

Last time we stayed in one of the two bedroom houses but this time we booked one of the Solo ground floor apartments with a double bed, open plan living/kitchen/dining area and a bath with overhead shower which was perfect for us as a couple.

The accommodation was excellent. It looked and smelt as though it had just been cleaned. All of the crockery, utensils and appliances were clean and worked. (Found the instruction manuals for the appliances, LOL)

It was everything that we needed for a fantastic relaxing long weekend.

Although the apartment has all of the relevant appliances to go self-catering we decided to make the most of the on-site public house/restaurant.

I had seen a couple of reviews that said that they had found the prices a little pricey or in one case extortionate but this could not be further from the truth.

My wife and I had several meals as well as several "pit stops" from our long walks along the beach back to our apartment and at no time did we feel that the meals and/or drinks were expensive or were disappointed in the actual quality the meals. (On two occasions we had to waddle back to the apartment as the meals were so big!)

We also got talking to a couple who have three young children who come from a holiday park down the road as they prefer the meals from the on-site pub here at the Bay.

As the weather was so good we didn't get a chance to use the other facilities whilst we were here, i.e. swimming pool, sauna, steam room, etc. as we spent most of our time on the beach.
(If you have young children or elderly members within your party the only "killer" is the walk back to the Bay from the beach there is a tarmac "hill" that you have to walk up to reach the Bay which will sort out the heavy breathers from the rest.)

All in all it was a very enjoyable and relaxing few days and we will definitely look at having another holiday here in the future.

(My only suggestion for a higher mark on the sleep quality would be thicker pillows and black-out curtains to stop the sunlight and street lights from lighting up the room.)
