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 location is ideal, with the beach a short walk away. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Zoe the owner was very helpful with alternatives when the pool was closed. A very relaxing weekend!

How to get there
From the South it is quicker to take the M1 to Junction 32 and then take the M18 then briefly the M62 until J37. Drive through Howden and take the signs for Bridlington and then Scarborough. Turn off towards Kilham and then Burton Fleming and Hunmanby. Take Sands Road in Humanby right towards a roundabout and the A165. Take the first left and shortly afterwards first right into The Bay. Drive though past reception and sales and turn right at the roundabout onto Sunrise Drive number 35 in on your right about 200m further on (next to a small car park).
