    • “Having arrived in Filey after a gruelling journey up the a1 we picked up the key from the friendly cheerful folk at Esssential holidays. We then went to the bay, my first impression of the bay was it resembled oneof the edge of town starter home estates you see dotted about. We entered the maze of streets & tried to find our apartment we found the apartment number above & below but not ours in despair we searched then blundered into it. The door is round the back! Please please please put a note in the kitchen/master bedroom window telling people this. Aside from this glitch the site is great with pub cafe & swimmming pool. The apartment was extremely clean & well equipped the kids bedroom was a little small but sufficient to the purpose. The staff are lovely, friendly & helpful in the pool, bar, cafe & reception. There are free activities like shooting & archery during the day & aqua jets or waterwalkers in the pool for a modest charge. Filey Scarborough & Bridlington are only 20 mins car drive away & there are a couple of pubs a (brisk) walk away. In the words of arnie "I'll be back!"”

    Mr Knifton, Melton Mowbray, October 2014

    • “The flat was beautiful. The site was lovely and of an excellent standard throughout. Particularly enjoyed the swimming pool, birdwatching in the flower meadows and also the considerate and friendly neighbours opposite. Also impressed with the fact that the site was really dog friendly. The entire holiday was delightful and so relaxing. The beach is beautiful too. There was plenty of interesting things to do in the area as well and lots of information in the flat regarding places to visit. Definitely hope to return.”

    Mrs Hammond, Bingley, June 2014

About the location


Scarborough 7.5 miles; Bridlington 11 miles.

Filey is a traditional English seaside resort with a friendly atmosphere, offering a restful holiday. A fishing town on the North East Coast, Filey has enjoyed a reputation of being a resort since Victorian times, set affront the magnificent Filey Bay, a long stretch of beautiful sand, with Filey Brigg and its shallow rockpools to the north. The town itself seems almost caught in a time warp, retaining much of its character with individual shops, narrow paths and ginnels. There is a small coble landing, a slipway where local fishermen keep their boats, plus delightful beach chalets that can be hired through the summer months. The bay is edged with two promenades and there are various gardens, where brass bands play on a Sunday afternoon. This small town is family orientated, with pony rides available on the beach, children’s play areas, crazy golf and candy floss! Nearby, Flamborough Head boasts high cliffs with exhilarating walks and Bempton Cliffs are a haven for bird lovers. A short drive brings you to the busier town of Scarborough as well as plenty to explore and discover in this lovely area.
