We have just returned from a lovely weekend in Filey staying at the fabulous Bumblebee Cottage.
The cottage was really well equipped; lovely layout and made for a really relaxing stay.
Pet friendly which was a must.
All the contact with Jenny was excellent and efficient.
We will be booking again and I will be notifying friends, family and work colleagues to check it out !!
This was our second time at Bumblebee Cottage and we loved it. The house is fully equipped with everything you'd need including windbreak and toys for the beach which my family made full use of. My daughters love the toys and games that are provided and we make good use of the complimentary tea and coffee. Both times we stayed for 10 days as we find loads to do both in Filey and around North Yorkshire. My children refer to Bumblebee cottage as their holiday house, they feel so at home there -I think that says it all.
Stayed for 2 nights early June. The instructions for getting to the cottage and finding the key etc were excellent. The cottage itself was lovely, ridiculously(!) well equipped - I don't think I've ever been anywhere that literally had everything you could think of!
The bedrooms were lovely, my daughter loved the bunk beds so much. She loved all the toys she found under the beds too - she had so much to play with it was hard to drag her out of the cottage!
Location is good, about 10 (15 with a 4 year old) minute walk to the beach through the development. If the weather had been better we would have definitely made more use of this (unfortunately bit rainy and windy), the cottage even had deckchairs, windbreak and every beach game known to man.
We got a takeaway pizza from the Italian restaurant on the site which was nice. We didn't eat in the pub so can't comment. We went to a lovely little tearoom in Filey called The Sugarcube - absolutely lovely - highly recommend.
All in all a lovely little weekend away in a fab little cottage. It's clear it's a popular choice as I think the last time I checked it's booked throughout the summer! Would definitely return.
This is our second stay and I still can't get over what a lovely cottages both Bumblebee and Kittiwake are. So beautifully decorated with absolutely everything you need for your break. Saves us packing so much, I can leave all of the kids' usual entertainment at home as they're spoilt for choice sooo many board games, books outdoor games. There are chairs for the beach, dog bowls, you name it and it's probably there!
Lovely welcome package and everything you need to know about the local area.
I really can't praise it enough. Wish I could stay all year!
This has been our 3rd visit to Bumblebee Cottage and once again we weren't disappointed. As said in previous reviews there is everything you need for a comfortable stay and to entertain all ages including the furry kids . It literally feels like it's home from home. For some reason there is enough cutlery & crockery for a street party I'd love it even more if big bath sheets were available - bath towels just don't give me the same level of coziness, but fab that towels are available anyway.
We love this area of the coast & can recommend the Royal Oak nearby for good pub grub, the Park & Ride at Scarborough is fab & incredibly cheap. We ventured to Whitby this time too & used their Park & Ride although it was double the price.
We've eaten at The Buccaneer & Italian in Filey, love The Coffee Shed too and the restaurant on the front above the beach shop which is even dog friendly too. On the whole I would recommend Bumblebee Cottage and Jenny is fabulous, very attentive & aims to sort out any problems with minimal fuss & in a timely manner.
Thanks again Jenny ☺
Bumblebee cottage is excellent, it has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Even on a rainy day you could never be bored of things to do in this cottage, there is the biggest a collection of DVD's, games and books. There are even toys for the dogs. The Bay is a beautiful resort, very well maintained and the pool and facilities are fantastic. We give this property 10/10 and will look forward to returning again and would recommend to friends and family.

The cottage is in a very easy accessible location, the beach is a 7 minute walk away, although quite steep going towards the end - great fun when pushing a pushchair back up lol
The cottage itself has everything you need for a comfortable stay - there is more cutlery than you can shake a stick at, highchair, pots, pans, crockery, games galore and more dvd's than I have ever seen in one collection! - and the welcome pack was a wonderful, thoughtful touch.
The swimming pool on site was clean and well managed, the kids loved it.
Filey is only a 5 minute drive away, an although we only briefly visited due to the weather, I'm sure you could make a day out of going.
Scarborough is also a short drive away and would be a good place to go if you fancied a bit more hustle and bustle.
Overall I would recommend this cottage to anybody, as Jenny communicates excellently, the cottage is clean and well equipped and the price is not extortionate.
