“Perfect”
Reviewed September 16, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at Meadowside Cottage for three nights in September 2015 with our two children, age 9 & 12. It was superb! The cottage is sooo comfortable and spotlessly clean. It had everything we could need and more! The extra touches added by Suzie really make the cottage feel very welcoming and super cosy. Outside the patio doors is a lovely green space where we could let the children run around whilst we watched (from inside on the cool day and outside on the warm day) - very relaxing! The pub on site offers good pub grub and Cafe Italia is great - the food and service were very good. We took the kids to the swimming pool for the 'inflatable obstacle course' session and they had loads of fun. Wish we had time for them to do some of the other activities on offer eg: sea scooters! We can't wait to go back to Meadowside Cottage!

Thank you very much for your great review. It's really nice to hear the extra touches make a difference. The green space out the back is a great place for the kids to play. I'm glad the children liked the splash session and hopefully you'll have a chance to try out more activities next time.

“fantastic meadow side cottage”
Reviewed August 25, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

On arrival we were met with a fantastic welcome package which included a giant Toblerone each, a box of after eight mints, biscuits, fresh coffee, tea and a bottle of wine. The kitchen is extremely well stocked with things you would never expect to find in self catering accommodation such as sauces, oils, jams, and washing up liquid to name a few. A first aid kit is even supplied.. The whole cottage is furnished to a very high standard and a great deal of thought has been given to items which made our holiday more enjoyable. In the living room there are a selection of dvds for all ages so each evening we would watch a dvd with candles lit, all supplied by Suzie, and the patio doors open. Perfect. There were also a selection of boards games which the children loved playing. Toys/equipment are also supplied for the beach. You literally just have to take yourselves and your clothes,! The bedrooms are beautifully furnished and the beds extremely comfortable, the master bedroom has a tv. I was asked if anything could be added or changed to improve our stay and I can honestly say no, this has to be the best self catering accomodation I have ever stayed in. The Bay itself is in a gorgeous location with a private path to the beach, we had a lovely walk to Filey along the beach. On site we used the gym and swimming pool which are both kept to a high standard. We ate at the Italian restaurant one evening, the food was beautiful and very reasonably priced. If I were to be very critical, i would say the only thing missing is a small convenience store on site. We will definitely be returning to this beautiful cottage.

Thank you so much for your fab review. I'm glad you like the welcome pack and extras provided. We love to light the candles and settle down to watch and DVD and play games after a day on the beach too. It so nice to hear it's the best self catering accommodation you've ever stayed in. Thank you.

“Perfect holiday cottage. Great attention to detail.”
Reviewed August 12, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our family stayed here for most of last week and loved every minute of it.

The cottage itself is located in the beautiful Bay complex just outside Filey and has all the things you want. A pub, cafe/restaurant, swimming pool, fishing lake, private beach etc. It's very modern, very clean and a lovely place to stay.

And Meadowside Cottage only adds to the experience. Upon arrival we found the cottage fully clean, bathed in sunshine and even with a welcome pack containing essentials and luxuries! After Eight mints, Fox's biscuits, milk, coffee, you name it! There is also a bit of an emergency box with things that you may have forgotten, to tide you over until you get to a shop. Brilliant! This and loads of other information such as menu's for the pub, WiFi password (kids had the tablets hooked up in seconds!) were all in the very useful Guest Information book.

The cottage throughout is incredibly well maintained and modern with a lovely patio seating area that backs onto a great open space where the kids from all the cottages played. It feels very safe so we just let the kids run around and even when they were on the scooters, we never saw anyone driving quickly around the complex.

All told, Meadowside Cottage is by far the best place we have stayed in Filey and I can't really see us considering anywhere else in the future. Looking forward to going back!

“lovely cottage by the bay”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We've just got back from a wonderful break at this lovely cottage. The bay is in a great location and the beach there is stunning - our children played on it for hours. The cottage is very well equipped and had everything you could need. It was perfectly located looking out to the green at the back - lovely to sit out in the evening. We were very lucky with the weather so that made it extra special. We will definitely go back!

“Perfect holiday accommodation”
Reviewed July 31, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Excellent family accommodation in the Bay village. Very well and thoughfully equipped by the owner...no running out of toilet rolls or diswasher tablets here! Short walk to a world-class beach a short distance out of Filey. The Bay offers a variety of entertainment including a very clean and free to use swimming pool. We thoroughly enjoyed our week, would highly recommend this particular property and may well return. Booking process was very good as well.

“Lovely house, good location”
Reviewed July 17, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Great place for a short break with nearly-3 year old daughter. House is beautifully decorated and very well equipped, and 'welcome pack' was greatly appreciated. Good, safe area to play on grass and boules court at the back. 20 minute walk down to the great beach was fine for toddler, although she did need carrying back up. Filey is nearby but a few minutes drive rather than a walk for a toddler.

Thank you for kind review. The Bay is a great place for children. For future reference The Bay now have a buggy which can be used if you would rather not have to walk to/from from the beach, as long as it's available. You just need to phone security (the number will be in the guest information folder going forward) and ask them to send it.

“Beautiful cottage by the Bay.”
Reviewed June 30, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cottage was beautifully kept and presented, and well equipped. The owner had thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable, from wine and chocolates for the adults and a gift for the baby, to beach towels and black out blinds. The Bay village is in pristine condition, with an attractive selection of holiday cottages. Ours backed on to a green area with a boules pitch. The on site cafe and take away was very good, and we didn't try the pub but that looked good too. We enjoyed the swimming pool, and the wild flower meadows, and sitting by the lake watching the fish. Best of all was direct access to the beautiful beach, and easy proximity to all the attractions of the lovely Yorkshire coast. We will be back!

We're so pleased to hear you were impressed with both the cottage and the site. We also love sitting by the lake watching the fish and love it when the swans and ducks are there too. It's so peaceful. The walk to the beach is gorgeous too isn't it. We look forward to welcoming you back.
