About Chris and Jayne

Lavender cottage is owned by Chris and Jayne who live in Derbyshire.

We first came across The Bay in 2011 after taking a day off work to walk our German short-haired pointer along the beach from Hunmanby Gap to Filey to have some of the town's famous fish and chips. On seeing The Bay we fell in love with the place straight away.

We bought the cottage in late 2011 and have added many extras to make the cottage a real home from home and to ensure your holiday is as enjoyable as possible.

We visit the cottage as often as we can to escape everyday life as it's a great place to relax and unwind. We hope you enjoy the comfort of our cottage and enjoy the superb facilities that The Bay has on offer.

If you have any questions please get in touch.

Chris and Jayne purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Chris and Jayne chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

We know the area well from family holidays and we've had many lovely times visiting the beautiful North Yorkshire coastline and roaming the surrounding moors. The area has something for everyone from stunning scenery and glorious stretches of sand to family-friendly seaside resorts and tiny fishing villages.

The cottage is new and modern but with a traditional look that blends into the surroundings. It provides a peaceful retreat with plenty of on-site facilities. The beach, wild flower meadow, lakes and facilities such as a leisure centre, swimming pool and pub are all a short walk away.

The location is within easy access to Filey, the North Yorkshire Moors, bustling towns of Scarborough and Bridlington and a bit further afield Whitby and York.

What makes this cottage unique

In all seasons it's a great place to get away from it all. It has a very relaxed feel but there is plenty to do if that's what you prefer.

A stroll along the beach, dip in the indoor heated swimming pool, and drink in the pub are all a short walk away. The Bay is a safe family friendly environment with 24 hour on-site security.

The cottage is in a great location with open aspect and sunny terrace. It's well decorated, furnished and has everything you need. We've also left a selection of books, DVDs, Wii, board games and beach accessories for our guests to use.

A beautiful cottage on Yorkshire Coast

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 4 night break at Lavender Cottage. The property is immaculate a real home from home. Very comfortable beds and a great kitchen. Very central for touring round and a nice pool and pub on site. Our dog enjoyed the walk down to the beach and the meadow at the back of the cottage. We hope to get back again soon.

This is a truly beautiful property!!

Located in a fantastic location near the entrance to The Bay, so easy to find, and close to all the main amenities The Bay has to offer.

The cottage was wonderfully decorated, and spotlessly clean, with everything you need to have a fabulous holiday.

Jayne and Chris were amazing in relation to the whole booking process, and made everything very simple.

Would definitely recommend this property!!

Fantastic quality property by a beautiful beach.

  • 5 of 5

Lavender Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. The house is beautifully presented, warm and clean. It is situated in a peaceful part of the site within walking distance of the beach. The wildflower meadow provides a alternative place to spend time. The site pool is simple but more than adequate. We had our very young grandchildren with us so did not use any of the other facilities but everyone seemed to be enjoying the alternative leisure options that were available. The beach is beautiful, peaceful and safe. Chris and Jane put in every effort to make sure that our stay went well and we will certainly return to Lavender Cottage.
