Our review of Harlequin Cottage


Harlequin Cottage is a modern, well-equipped property set on the Bay Filey, a purpose-built holiday resort in the north Yorkshire countryside. The house has two bedrooms – one double and one twin – with an open-plan living area downstairs, including french doors onto a private patio area with a recently added brick-built barbecue. Prices are very reasonable, with a week during the summer school holidays costing £849; prices fall to as little as £299/week out of season. Weekend or mid-week breaks are also available.


Harlequin Cottage itself is a child friendly property with a safe outdoor play area and various children’s toys including games, puzzles, colouring books, DVDs an Xbox 360. But what really makes the cottage perfect for younger visitors is the wide range of on-site activities at the Bay holiday village to help keep children of all ages occupied. There’s a leisure centre with indoor swimming pool, children’s pool and tennis court, and a variety of activities (most requiring an additional charge) including archery, air rifle shooting, disc golf, table tennis, fencing, snorkelling and more. The Bay also benefits from 90 acres of beautiful countryside incorporating three lakes and three ponds, set amongst peaceful parkland, woodland and meadows – perfect for exploring with the kids and letting off steam on a sunny day. And best of all, the Bay has direct access onto a glorious five-mile stretch of beach which, at low tide, takes you all the way into the seaside town of Filey.


The facilities at Harlequin Cottage will undoubtedly keep the kids happy, but thankfully there are a few features just for mum and dad too. In particular, the on-site leisure complex includes a steam room and sauna, plus a gym for exercise fans; and there’s a beauty room where visitors can indulge in a professional treatment such as a facial, manicure or pedicure. There’s also a Café Italia Brasserie and Coffee Bar offering fresh snacks and hot drinks during the day, followed by a full evening menu (or takeaway pizzas!) later on. You’ll doubtless also enjoy the complex’s on-site traditional pub. Harlequin Cottage is pet friendly and there’s free unlimited WiFi available; the cottage also comes with a high chair and travel cot for those travelling with younger children.


Here at Parent Friendly Stays we really love north Yorkshire for its beautiful unspoilt scenery, and we think Harlequin Cottage – with its fabulous range of on-site facilities – offers an ideal family break at a very competitive price.
