Ridgeway cottage is owned by Damon and Maxine from Sheffield. We have two teenage children who both enjoy spending time at the cottage. We bought the cottage after booking a last minute short break in the summer of 2016, although the height of the season, the complex was so peaceful and relaxing. We thought we would never tire of the surroundings. We completed our purchase just before Christmas 2016 and have spent the last month furnishing the property so that our guests will have the same experience from a relaxing holiday as we did in summer 2016.
Owner purchased this House in 2017
Why Owner chose Hunmanby
We plan to spend time at the cottage ourselves so the 2 hour drive is manageable for a last minute break.
What makes this House unique
With an open plan living area allows families and friends to spend quality time together in a spacious environment. The patio with wooden table and chairs looks out onto the communal garden. You will be staying in a cottage which is loved and used by the owners, we like to stay often so we can maintain and improve any aspect we feel is not as we would expect as a guest.

Beautifully furnished, a perfect getaway with great local facilities
The cottage is beautifully furnished, clean with great facilities both in the cottage and on the Village resort itself. The owners are very thoughtful and evidently want their guests to enjoy the property. Direct access to the beach, village resort pub and Italian make this the ideal location for families. Highly recommend a stay at Ridgeway Cottage, it exceeded our high expectations.
Great location, very clean, homely and well appointed.Everything we needed. Exceeded expectations.
One negative, but very much a personal thing. The lodges immediately behind the cottage would have felt a little close for my comfort if they had been in use during our stay. This would not worry most people I suspect.
The cottage itself is new build, tastefully decorated, clean, comfortable and very well equipped. It was a very pleasant base for our short break. The Bay holiday village in which it stands is pretty and has the feel of a quiet rural village.
The owners communications are prompt, courteous and very considerate.
I visited the leisure facilities and my wife and I used the pub, both of which are a short stroll from the cottage. Both were well run establishments with pleasant and helpful staff.
Thank you very much for your review, we are really pleased you found the cottage well equipped and clean. We do try hard to make every guest have an enjoyable stay what ever time of year. We would welcome you back any time.
Feels like staying with friends
Ridgeway Cottage has been tastefully furnished and equipped. The owners have provided all sorts of little extras that make such a difference. Maxine kept us fully informed on everything we needed to know. The duvets, sheets and towels are good quality, lots of crockery, glassware and cooking items, the lamps and decor details are tasteful and carefully chosen. The holiday site was quiet, even though it was very busy as it was half term, and just what we needed. Staff polite and friendly. The short break we enjoyed was too short, and did not want to leave... we will be back.
I highly recommend Ridgeway Cottage and The Bay ~Filey.
Thank you so much for your lovely review, we are really happy you have enjoyed your stay. The Bay is a lovely place, like you we find it peaceful whatever time of year we go. We would be pleased to welcome you back any time.
Beautiful, modern clean property. Everything you need for your stay is provided. Lovely surroundings with beautiful walks.
Thank you very much for your kind review and for looking after our cottage during your stay. You are welcome back anytime.
A cottage not to be missed
There are plenty of cottages available to rent at 'The Bay' but we settled on Ridgeway due to the consistently high reviews, particularly regarding cleanliness. In this respect, we were not disappointed. The semi-detached cottage was beautifully furnished in a contemporary style with lots of light throughout. Comfy sofa, TV, DVD, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher, fridge with small freezer. Bathroom upstairs with bath, toilet and shower and a downstairs toilet. Ideally situated for the leisure centre, restaurant, bar and beach, but not too close to be disturbed; in fact it was very peaceful in September. Other properties are very close, so in the height of summer privacy may be a problem (but this would apply to all cottages on this site). Excellent email communication with the owner who, quite rightly, is very proud of her cottage. Ideally situated for trips up and down the coast with the opportunity to walk to Filey on the beach at low tide. Would we rent here again? Of course.
Thank you for your very nice and in depth review. We are really pleased you enjoyed your time at the cottage and would welcome you back anytime.
