Description from owner


Roobarb's Retreat” is a 3 bedroomed holiday cottage near Filey offering stylish and comfortable accommodation in a stunning location. Situated in a purpose built village called "The Bay", set in over one hundred acres of unspoilt meadows, it boasts, fishing lakes, a boathouse, family pub, cafe, a leisure centre with swimming pool, steam room, sauna and gym, putting green, bike hire and tennis court and has direct access to the beautiful beach. Roobarb's Retreat holiday cottage is ideal for families or couples who will find the relaxing atmosphere a real tonic. The cooking facilities are excellent but the John Paul Jones Pub and Italian Café (50m from the cottage) are very convenient and highly recommended for a night or meal out.
Beautifully designed and fitted to a high standard, the holiday cottage comprises of a master bedroom with king size bed, en-suite shower room and flat screen freeview TV, 1 double and 1 twin room, family bathroom; bath with overhead shower, an open plan L shaped lounge with two leather sofas and two easy chairs, dining room with table and chairs for six and fully fitted kitchen including dishwasher, washer/dryer and microwave, separate hallway leading to downstairs cloak/WC. French doors open onto a furnished patio, surrounded by a large shared garden and landscaped grounds. Travel Cot and High Chair are available for use free of charge.

Named after the owner's eldest dog, Roobarb's Retreat welcomes up to two well-behaved dogs that can remain downstairs in the living area. Please let the owner know you are bringing one or two dogs in the message along with the booking form, as there may be a charge at certain times of the year and for large breeds of dog. Dogs are allowed on the six mile stretch of sand all year but there are seasonal restrictions along the sea front in Filey itself. They must be kept on the lead in the village but can be let off the lead in the meadows when the tide is in and there is no beach access. The meadows are just behind the cottage and there is a delightful walk down to the beach past another lake teaming with wildlife. The John Paul Jones Pub allows dogs, which means you don't need to leave them behind when you go out.
Our guests have complimentary access to the Swimming Pool and Gym (situated about 100m from the cottage) Sauna and Steam room, with many other activities available (for a charge payable at Reception or The Leisure Centre) including: -

Mountain Bike Hire
Putting Green and Disc Golf
Water Walkers
Golf - local golf course
Fishing Lake £5 all day (rod licence required)
Beauty Room (for pampering)
The region's events and attractions are waiting for you to enjoy and there is something for the whole family. The traditional, Victorian resort of Filey is 3 miles away by car (or an enjoyable thirty five minute walk along the beach) with shops restaurants, award winning gardens, museum and superb golf course. The larger vibrant resorts of Scarborough and Bridlington flank The Bay and are both only a 10 minute drive up or down the coast. The Bay gives guests easy access for visiting the countless attractions and is perfect for exploring the breathtaking Yorkshire coastline from Scarborough to Flamborough Head and the countryside of the North York Moor and Dalby Forest.
