This holiday cottage is cosy and modern with coastal decorations throughout. It is a short downhill walk to Filey beach (which is 6 miles of golden sand from Filey Brigg to Speeton Cliffs). A great place to walk the dog and enjoy bird watching.

The space

Roobarb's Retreat Holiday Cottage is situated at The Bay, Filey. It is in a good position, well away from the main coastal road, close to the swimming pool, gym, cafe and pub and backs onto a small wood, so is not overlooked at the back by other properties. It is very comfortable with a king size bed in the main bedroom, two new leather sofas in the sitting room and spacious dining for six people.

Guest access

Guests will be able to use the swimming pool and gym for free. The pub is great for meals and you can take your dog there. Up to two dogs can be taken to the cottage but there is a small charge of £5 per dog per day.

Interaction with guests

I live quite close to the cottage but will leave the key in a key safe so that guests can access the cottage on or after 4pm when they arrive.

Other things to note

The cottage is for self catering only but I tend to leave some refreshments such as tea, coffee, herbal teas, wine and biscuits/chocolate for your arrival. There will also be a tea towel, dishwasher tablets and cleaning products for your use.

Roobarb's Retreat is a great, dog friendly, family house in a fantastic position on The Bay at Filey. Equipped and furnished to a very high standard. A great base for exploring the East Coast.

You get exactly what Zoe advertises. A nice three bedroom house that has everything you need - board games for the family, a fully equipped kitchen, table and chairs outside and it's quiet. The house is a five minute walk from a relatively private beach and the resort has a tennis court, swimming pool, on site pub, restaurant and chemist (we visited none as the local restaurants, pub and fish and chip shots were great in Hunmandby). At the end of the day the measure of a property is if you would go back - I would as we had a great time in a nice house. Zoe is a good host that spend time with us to ensure we had a good holiday.

Ideal home away from home for a relaxing family short break. Property well presented with everything needed for a very pleasant stay. Great to have the swimming pool, sauna and steam room so close for teenage children to enjoy. Close proximity of Filey beach meant we all enjoyed a 'brisk' seaside paddle. Good communications from the host at all times ensured property was easy to find and access very straightforward. Many thanks for a wonderful Easter break.

A great cottage in a beautiful development close to the beach. The host, Zoe, was always on hand to answer any questions. We had a great time and we'll be back!
