About Dave Lee

We live in Newcastle and have stayed at The Bay 6 or 7 times over the last couple of years. We love the place, and have decided to take the next step and buy our own holiday cottage.

Dave Lee purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Dave Lee chose Filey

We love this part of the world. The beaches really are world class, and there are lots of places for walks of all types, both coastal and inland on the nearby North York Moors National Park.

The fish and chips aren't bad either!

What makes this cottage unique

The Bay has everything we look for in a holiday - top-quality accommodation

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at the lovely Kingfisher Cottage. Was just as good as last time. It is warm,clean, comfortable and the owner is very helpful. We find The Bay a ideal place to stay and really enjoy the walk along the beach into Filey .Also if you don't fancy cooking or just want a drink the pub and Italian restaurant are a few strides away.. Great short break!

Perfect short break

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculately presented, with everything we needed (and more) and we felt at home immediately. The cottage was definitely dog friendly with some doggy accoutrements in one of the cupboards! The site itself was beautifully maintained and very peaceful even though it seemed to be very popular (especially with other dog owners). We didn't really make use of any of the on-site facilities as we just wanted a quiet few days away with the dog, and it was perfect for that: we were able to walk down to the beach, then along the beach into Filey itself and the dog had a fantastic time! I would have no hesitation in recommending The Bay as a whole and Kingfisher Cottage in particular for a lovely, relaxing break.
