This was our second stay here (last one June 2013).  We had an excellent time, weather very good for April - not a drop of rain and the sun shone.  We enjoyed lovely walks on the nearby beach with Barney our border collie and Fern the Hungarian Vizsla.  The cottage is wonderful and we look forward to our next stay. Thanks Zoe!

Another lovely stay.  The cottage was nice and clean, thank you so much for all the goodies.  We discovered a new dog friendly cafe in Filey (Bronte Vinery on Belle Vue Street) - lovely food and dogs allowed inside!  Also enjoyed a coffee at the beach cafe at Hunmanby Gap.

Roobarb's Retreat is a very cosy and welcoming cottage and we especially liked all the superb artwork and pictures.  The cottage is situated in a lovely spot with direct walks on to The Meadows and Lakes and there is a brilliant walk down to the beach.  The cottage is very well equipped and spotlessly clean.  Bryn the Border Terrier enjoyed rabbit and pheasant watching.  Thank you for the lovely red wine and other goodies.  We hope to be back in the future.

We have had a thoroughly enjoyable time here at the cottage.  Everyone has been delighted at the standard of the accommodation (we love the seaside themed decor) and the location.  This was Maisie's first holiday - she has enjoyed the long walks on the beach.  It was great to be able to take her with us for meals in the pub too.

Wonderful week's holiday at Roobarb's Retreat with the family.  Beautiful house and very well equipped.  Lovely location and so near to the beach too.  We made use of the swimming pool and the pub for evening drinks.  Very comfy beds and pillow.  Thank you for having us Zoe.  Would love to return.

A lovely relaxing two week holiday, loved the well equipped cottage and "welcome pack", thanks Zoe.  Well located for beach and facilities.  We swam, palyed lots of table tennis, did crossbows, archery, rifle shooting and lots of walks along the beach.  We made use of the board games most evenings and had a great laugh.  We visited Sewerby Park Run on Saturday morning, highly recommended for those who run.

A fabulous place to stay.  We all thoroughly enjoyed the cosy atmosphere.  Kaitlyn enjoyed the swimming and Leia enjoyed her walks on the beach.  I wish we could have stayed longer.  I am sure we'll be back next year when I'm visiting England again.

We had a lovely 4 days in this beautiful, comfortable cottage.  Everything we needed for a relaxing New Year's Stay.  Ollie the dog loved the beach as much as we did and the whole site is impeccable - really clean and quiet.  Our teenagers loved the pool but most importantly, a real home from home to escape everyday life and just be together.  We will definately return.

McKenna family, Liverpool New Year 2018


Came to stay for a couple of nights with my humans and have spent two days on the fantastic beach only five minutes from the house - which the humans loved, very cosy and relaxing for them.  The only downside - we were only here for two nights - will definately be coming back, I know why Roobarb loved it here!

We came for a well deserved rest, and rest we have.  The environment was peaceful and relaxing and we loved the house which accommodated our needs well.  No car, so we walked and walked and walked.  Something very tranquil about walking along the beach to Filey to get your groceries.  The beach is fab, Joe loved running and drawing numbers/letters in the sand.  Thank you we will be back  xxxxx

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this peaceful haven.  The wildlife and birds in the surrounding area alone are worthy of a visit.  Filey is just a pleasant walk away and the coastline is perfection itself.  You, like us, are seeking an excape from the pressures of city life, then you have certainly chosen the right place to revive your energies.  Enjoy!

Ann and John, Sheffield | June 2010

This is our second visit, the cottage is lovely, we love the walks along the beach.  Filey is a lovely little town.  Went to the pitch and put - have a go if you have time.  The food in the John Paul Jones Pub was great!

Stephen, Susan, Martin, Katie and Barney the dog, Appleby. | July 2010

This is our first visit to Filey and we've thoroughly enjoyed our week's holiday here at The Bay.  Very comfortable house and lovely surroundings, have provided much needed R and R.  Pub/food excellent.  Gorgeous beaches.  Walks from North Landing to Flamborough Head (and back!) well worth taking - coastline is dramatic.  Filey Miniature golf course great fun.  Would love to come back soon.

Had a great week's break, cottage is lovely and in a super location for walks to the beach!  Buzz thoroughly enjoyed the sea walks.  Would love to return.

Beautiful warm sunny week.  Loved the cottage, really comfortable.  Brilliant walks along the beach searching for fossils and exploring rock pools - we left nets and buckets for the next visitors.  Try the Magpie Cafe at Whitby for brilliant fish and chips.  A lovely relaxing holiday.

We came for Peter's 30th birthday and had a wonderful weekend!  The house is beautiful, cosy and well equipped!  We all enjoyed walking around Whitby and the children loved rock pooling on Filey Brigg. (used net and bucket left by previous guests - thanks :).  We will be back!!!!

Walsh and Abbey families, Leeds and Hull | October 2010

We came for Mum's 40th birthday, had a good weekend, enjoyed the meal in the pub.  We had a great walk into Filey along the beach. Everyone found the house comfortable, thanks for providing the games for us! xxxxx
