Nestled amongst beautiful parkland on the Yorkshire coast, the award-winning The Bay, Filey is a prestigious development that has planning consent for almost 900 traditionally constructed holiday cottages and apartments, along with New England style beach houses.
Along with the stunning holiday cottages, the £120 million development also boasts a luxury leisure complex with an indoor swimming pool, children’s pool, sauna, steam room and fitness suite. Outdoor facilities include fishing, mountain bike hire, beach activities and a tennis court.
In November 2011, The Bay was awarded the ‘Best in the North’ award in the Relax and Explore category at the sixth annual Hoseasons gala awards dinner. The event showcased the achievements of Hoseasons’ 470 lodges and holiday parks throughout the UK, and also served to highlight the success of lodge and park holidays and park holidays in 2011.
Laurence Corrigan, Director of developers Essential Vivendi Ltd, commented:
“We are absolutely delighted to have won the Relax and Explore award. This award recognises the effort and hard work put in by every member of the team, all of whom are responsible for ensuring our customers have a great holiday experience. This award proves the hard work has paid off and we aim to continue to deliver great UK holidays in 2012.”
Geoff Cowley, Managing Director of The Hoseasons Group, added:
“The Hoseasons Group is the largest self catering holiday company in the UK, so winning one of these awards means The Bay is one of the UK’s most popular and successful locations in our portfolio. Like many holiday companies, the business has built on the strong success of UK holidays in 2011, and we look forward to helping locations continue to develop and grow in 2012.”
All of the properties at The Bay have been constructed to a very high standard. The brick-built homes, cottages and apartments have been built using traditionally crafted bricks and slate or clay tiled roofs, whilst all of the homes come with a full 10-year NHBC guarantee and feature central heating and double glazing throughout.
The New England style beach houses feature a floor construction made up of over 150mm of polyurethane insulation, which is twice the depth required under current building regulations. The wall construction is timber framed, fully filled internally with a .44 rock wool, and an Ecobrite internal insulation, non-permeable barrier to the internal envelope. In addition 65mm of polyurethane insulation was added to the whole external envelope of the building before constructing the external Marley Cedral Board skin, all of which gives a wall and roof U-Value of 0.18.
