A lovely cottage with outside space and parking, plus free use of indoor heated swimming pool, gym, sauna and steam room, with six miles of sandy beach just a short stroll away! With smart contemporary decor, this is an immaculate, well-equipped cottage, perfect for families or two couples wanting a superb cottage near the sea and beach, with plenty to see and do nearby.

This is my fifth stay at The Bay and my first at Sleeper Cottage

Nice cottage and the location was good with a large shared grassed area out back. The downsides to this property was the cleanliness. The first thing we noticed on entry to the property was the smell, a burnt smell hits you as soon as you walk in. I spent the first evening vacuuming the floors and washing pots. I’d ordered a shop to be delivered before I realised it didn’t have a proper fridge freezer just an under cupboard fridge and a small freezer shelf. Thankfully Asda took the frozen items back. The rest of the kitchen pots and pans were good and plentiful. The outdoor furniture was old and dirty and looking around at all the other properties all had much better outdoor dining facilities. The weather was so nice but we had to use our own beech chairs to sit outside. The window in the smaller bedroom was broken and in the heat was quite uncomfortable to sleep in there without it opening.

FILEY

Filey is a traditional English seaside resort with a friendly atmosphere, offering a restful holiday, making an ideal place to stay for walkers and wildlife watchers at any time of the year. A real gem on the Yorkshire coast. A fishing town on the North East Coast, Filey has enjoyed a reputation of being a resort since Victorian times, set beside the magnificent Filey Bay, a long stretch of beautiful sand, with Filey Brigg and its shallow rockpools to the north. Filey Brigg is a low headland that protects Filey Bay and provides good bird watching and seawatching opportunities all year round. The 400 ft high Bempton Cliffs (RSPB Reserve) to the south of Filey Bay are home to over 250,000 seabirds in the summer. gannets, kittiwakes, puffins, guillimots and razorbills all nest there. Gannets are regularly seen diving for fish in Filey Bay. The Brigg area is an ideal place to watch for common and rarer waders, seabirds and migrating warblers,finches and thrushes. As well as seabirds, seals and other marine life, such as porpoises dolphins and Minke Whales can be seen in the sea around the Brigg. The town itself seems almost caught in a time warp, retaining much of its character with individual shops, narrow paths and ginnels. There is a small coble landing, a slipway where local fishermen keep their boats, plus delightful beach chalets that can be hired through the summer months. The bay is edged with two promenades and there are various gardens, where brass bands play on a Sunday afternoon. This small town is family orientated, with donkey rides available on the beach, children’s play areas, crazy golf and candy floss. Also in Filey there is the Filey Dams Nature Reserve, a wetland reserve where common and rare waders and wildfowl can be seen as well as autumn gatherings of swallows, sand martins and house martins. Also there is Parish Wood (just off Sycamore Avenue) an unexpected gem that offers a wealth of wildlife. Willow warbler, chiffchaff, blackcap and tree sparrows breed there and a wide variety of other species are regularly seen such as great spotted woodpeckers and sparrow hawks. Parish Wood also provides shelter and food for a wide range of migrant bird species such as goldcrests, pied and spotted flycatchers, warblers, finches, thrushes and woodcocks. A short drive brings you to the busier town of Scarborough where for family fun you can visit the Alpamare Waterpark, a waterpark unlike anything the UK has ever seen before, as well as plenty to explore and discover in this lovely area.

Mrs Southward
The location of the property was stunning. We have been to The Bay several times and picked this house due to its location. The kitchen was very modern the only slight let down was the dinning table and coffee table which didn’t seem to fit in with rest of the house.
Miss Handley
Lovely cottage and yes I would book again but there could be a few improvements that could be done to make things even better especially if you were paying the higher prices in the high summer season. The shower head is positioned wrong,it really needs a shower curtain as you end up with water all over the floor as the screen isnt wide enough. There was a clump of hair in the corner of the shower but general cleanliness was ok,the stains ect that other review's mention in the bathroom were not there. The hallway and lounge area floors have yellow stains on them. The bushes infront of the kitchen window need cutting back as you cant see out it. The creaky bedroom floor that someone mentioned in 2019 is still there but at the end of the day it didnt bother me that much and its a holiday cottage thats used week in week out and this wouldnt be an easy task to do. Yes it needs a bit of TLC as I wouldnt pay more than what I did and when some pay over a £1000 you would expect things to be top notch but for what I paid it was fine. The bed and pillows are so comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils ect Could do with some better and more modern outdoor furniture. Yes parking is a bit of a problem especially if you go in very busy periods but there are other areas available. The directions are wrong too its the 2nd turning on the right not the 1st and there isnt a ground floor bedroom. I would use this cottage again as there was just the 2 of us,maybe it would be a bit small for 4 adults but for a young family ideal. Local eateries I can recommend are The Honey Pot but must book,huge portions and nice friendly staff and loads of choice. Thirty in Filey is a must for brunch,breakfast or lunch and the Bucaneer(Smugglers Cove) in Filey is a great place for dinner but again must book. All in all we had a great stay and Im a regular at The Bay and this was £200 cheaper than booking a cottage directly with the resort.
Mrs Morris
Cottage could do with a deep clean.lots of marks on floor and sink,Various marks on doors and walls.Shower screen needs extended to stop the floor from getting wet. Bushes out side kitchen window need attention. If these were addressed.It is a very nice comfortable cottage and I would definitely recommend it to anyone and I would stay again
Mr Lowrie
It was a lovely property and had everything we needed!
Miss Bedwell
We always stay at the bay in different cottages, but the last two years the standards have been disappointing, so I came armed with cleaning materials but when we walked into your cottage I was so happy! It looks like it’s been recently refurbished it was clean and modern even the curtains and carpet looked new, it’s a beautiful cottage! Everything we needed was there, plenty of cooking utensils, washing up liquid even hand wash in the toilets. The beds were soo comfortable and the pillows were amazing! Where are they from I want some! I would definitely stay in your cottage again. The car parking is a bit tight though which I know you can’t do anything about it is first come first served but apart from that we loved your cottage. Thankyou.
Mrs Hoyle
Perfect for a break with the dog. Easy access to the beautiful beach. The cottage contained everything we needed and would definitely recommend it.
Miss Haynes
The cleanliness of this house was not up to your normal standards. Dog hairs on the carpet, dirty windows and cobwebs. since we are in a pandemic there was no sanitizer or hand soap in the toilets. Every day you hear about being green and the environment and there is no recycling at this property. as a couple we put at least 2 bags of rubbish into general rubbish that could have been recycled. Numerous light bulbs had gone. Parking is not the best, we was lucky but if it was busy you would have problems. you can't use an electric car as there are no charging points. Description is wrong as your directions say it is the first turning on the right, but it is the second on the right. there was an identical house to ours, which could have caused confusion. you say there is a downstairs bedroom, but you do not say that it's a sofa bed. we had a good time, but it was not up to your normal high standards. Thank you
Mr Aston
Sleepers Cottage was clean, comfortable and well situated. The only slightly criticism would be the sofas were a little small for 4 adults and not overly comfortable to sit on. Other than that, fantastic cottage and very enjoyable holiday.
Mrs Farrow
Just to start by saying we had a wonderful week away and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. However we noticed several areas were unclean. A lot of dust on skirting and splash stains on bathroom door. 3 mugs in the cupboard were filthy. We are not complainers and we’re having a great time but especially with COVID it should have been exceptionally clean. We had not been sent any details from Sykes about pre booking any activities so everything was full when we arrived. Apart from that, it was a lovely house and very spacious. Uncomfortable beds but you do tend to get that whilst away. Lovely grassed area at the back to sit out at.
Mr Whittlestone
One of our stipulations was that the cottage needed to have its own parking It was shared parking and very limited 6 spaces used by 9 cottages and 1 of the cottages had 3 cars so we had to park elsewhere Generally the site was difficult to park in We didn’t expect that the area was all open and common. Our dog was not secure as we’d expected so had to be kept under close control at all times. This would also apply to children
Mr Abbott
No information pack and no welcome pack not even one teabag. Location was great lovely looking out onto the green. We would stay in this cottage again
Mrs Trafford
Property had dirty skirting boards, widows and doors. Bathroom had urine stained filthy dusty skirting boards. Tile grout stained . Bath seal a mess and you lie u In the bath looking at mold where the screen meets the bath. Considering let cost over a grand for the week the simply is not good enough. At this level a coffee press and chopping board would have been nice. Server also unwashed cups in the cupboard with clean ones. Yuk
