  • "We absolutely loved this apartment."

    We have stayed at the bay many times and this apartment was the best by far. Being on the ground floor and having a walk in shower was ideal for myself because I have mobility issues. It was a real home from home with everything we needed, with tasteful decor and quality fittings and fixtures. We both slept really well because it's so peaceful and the bed is really comfortable. The owners of Denby Escape have done a great job and we will be returning again later this year.

    Hi Sarah Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are so glad you felt our place was home from home and restful as that what we aim for. You are welcome back anytime. Linda and Martin Property Owner

  • "Beautiful apartment very clean and homely only constructive criticism would be to change the very lumpy uncomfortable pillows."

    Filey beach is great clean sandy and traditional. Totally recommend near by Piebald Inn for food . Excellent pies with 52 varieties! Whitby and Robin Hood bay are approximately a 50 minute drive and totally worth it great sea food heritage and history here and both just beautiful as each other , both places a definite must see!

    Thank you for your feedback, you’ll be happy to know I’ve replaced all 4 pillows to retain our 27 month old perfect rating. I’d also be pleased if you could state what is inaccurate about the listing so it too can be amended. Property Owner

The property

Filey 3 miles.

This lovely ground floor apartment is set within a superb contemporary holiday development, The Bay, just three miles from the ever-popular seaside town of Filey.

With direct access to miles of golden sand and with excellent on-site amenities, this comfortable property is perfect for couples in need of a relaxing break bedside the sea.

This well-appointed apartment offers bright and cheerful accommodation, tastefully furnished with both comfort and convenience in mind.

Decorated to a high standard and equipped with a wide selection of technologies, this property is perfect for a cosy night in during the chillier months as there is a Smart TV, with Blu-ray player and a Bluetooth CD/radio and WiFi.

When you head to the bedroom the French doors open out onto a south-facing private patio with furniture and brick barbecue; a real sun trap, where you can sit with a morning coffee or a glass of something cool and plan a day of adventures in Filey, Scarborough and the North York Moors beyond.

Surrounded by communal grounds, there is access to two lakes, picnic areas and BBQs and guests have inclusive use of a large indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room.

Other facilities on offer at a charge include tennis courts, a fishing lake, bicycle hire and beauty treatments - there really is something for everyone.

A short stroll brings you to long sandy beaches, whilst Filey itself retains bags of traditional charm with parks, promenades and a unique coble landing with small fishing vessels.

Why not enjoy a bracing walk on Filey Brigg or visit nearby Bempton Nature Reserve, with nesting puffins and gannets aplenty?

For those who enjoy the superb art of David Hockney or simply appreciate stunning countryside walks, following the Hockney Trail to discover the serene landscapes which served as inspiration for his paintings is most certainly a worthwhile pursuit, whilst the large resort of Scarborough is few minutes' drive away and the stunning countryside of the North York Moors is ripe for exploring.

This charming apartment is well-placed for a varied and memorable holiday, at any time of the year.

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, making an ideal place to stay for walkers and wildlife watchers at any time of the year. A real gem on the Yorkshire coast. A fishing town on the North East Coast, Filey has enjoyed a reputation of being a resort since Victorian times, set beside the magnificent Filey Bay, a long stretch of beautiful sand, with Filey Brigg and its shallow rockpools to the north. Filey Brigg is a low headland that protects Filey Bay and provides good bird watching and seawatching opportunities all year round. The 400 ft high Bempton Cliffs (RSPB Reserve) to the south of Filey Bay are home to over 250,000 seabirds in the summer. Gannets, kittiwakes, puffins, guillimots and razorbills all nest there. Gannets are regularly seen diving for fish in Filey Bay. The Brigg area is an ideal place to watch for common and rarer waders, seabirds and migrating warblers,finches and thrushes. As well as seabirds, seals and other marine life, such as porpoises dolphins and minke whales can be seen in the sea around the Brigg. 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, crazy golf and candy floss. Also in Filey there is the Filey Dams Nature Reserve, a wetland reserve where common and rare waders and wildfowl can be seen as well as autumn gatherings of swallows, sand martins and house martins. Also there is Parish Wood (just off Sycamore Avenue) an unexpected gem that offers a wealth of wildlife. Willow warbler, chiffchaff, blackcap and tree sparrows breed there and a wide variety of other species are regularly seen such as great spotted woodpeckers and sparrow hawks. Parish Wood also provides shelter and food for a wide range of migrant bird species such as goldcrests, pied and spotted flycatchers, warblers, finches, thrushes and woodcocks. A short drive brings you to the busier town of Scarborough where for family fun you can visit the Alpamare Waterpark, a waterpark unlike anything the UK has ever seen before, as well as plenty to explore and discover in this lovely area.
