  • "The property was lovely and the views spectacular, it needs little refurb and maybe the balconies cleaning but overall very nice."

    Thank you for your lovely comments. With the balconies open to the elements this can be a challenge, but we plan to replace the two balconies with a sweep around new single balcony in the next 12 months. Property Owner

  • "We had an amazing time."

    The location was the best and the views were so beautiful. Down the hill and straight on the beach. The beds were so comfy, we all slept really well and recharged. An absolutely beautiful apartment and so big. Would definitely recommend to all and we may will probably go back for another visit with the family.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. Property Owner

  • "Had a really good stay at 38c."

    Despite being in need of an "updating" in most areas the Appartment is a joy, with unbeatable views of Filey bay from it's balconies (well worth the climb to the second floor location) We certainly plan on returning. (only wish dogs were allowed

  • "We had a really enjoyable stay at 38C, the double aspect view from the lounge was excellent, the whole apartment was comfortable and the kitchen well stocked with equipment."

    We have friends that live in Filey and will certainly consider 38C when we next visit them.

  • "A lovely apartment but the bathroom was a let down, especially the shower which was poor and the area surrounding it was dirty."

    Thank you for your very positive review. We have now upgraded the bathroom with a new integrated fan and a new shower head. Property Owner

  • "The apartment is ideally situated and well equipped, however being of a certain age we found the stairs somewhat challenging and trying."

    Taking the luggage up and down was strenuous. Unfortunately the suite in the lounge looks lovely and so comfortable but alas is misleading. The base feather cushions keep falling down and have to be constantly adjusted and offers no support whatsoever. The shower is also a challenge. Until you become accustomed to the intracasies of the adjustments the water goes everywhere. Having said all that we did enjoy our stay greatly but would only recommend if you have no problem with stairs whatsoever. .

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We have since replaced and upgraded the chair in the lounge and installed a new shower head in the bathroom. Property Owner

  • "The apartment had the potential to be lovely but was disappointingly grubby."

    I had to buy bleach and a cheap toothbrush to clean the black mould from the bathroom before I felt happy to let my children have a bath. There was thick dust everywhere and the high touch surfaces (such as light switches) had clearly not been wiped down. When we are in the midst of a global pandemic, I expected a lot more. It would also have been nice to have some hand-wash provided for the same reason. Also, the shower head is so battered that it sprays the entire bathroom no matter which way you face it. A few details and this could be lovely but as it was, it doesn't feel like a holiday when you have to do significant cleaning before you can even begin to relax. Disappointing.

    Thank you for your positive comments and for the constructive criticism. We have spoken to the cleaners and they will attend to all these issues on a weekly basis. We have also replaced the shower head. Property Owner

  • "The views were exceptional and the apartment was spacious."

    The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We all really enjoyed our week in this property and love Filey. However , the shower needs updating as it is very hard to keep water off the floor and window sill when using. It would be in the interest of the owners to do so as there is mould developing on the window sill etc. Also a pan and brush would be useful and a few more pegs for hanging washing out on the balcony. There was no information about the house or recycling which was strange as we have stayed in many of your properties over the years. Parking was also a problem at times.

  • "The whole booking experience was great & Sykes went above and beyond to help us during covid but the property was a bit of a let down."

    Although it looked clean at first glance, when you started looking there was dust everywhere. It’s obviously had a lot of use & everything was looking a bit tired. Great as a base but not somewhere you’d want to stay very long. In desperate need of some TLC.

    Thank you for your positive comments and the constructive criticism. We have upgraded the furniture in the lounge and also replaced the shower head. We have also undertaken a full mid season deep clean. We look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

    The sea views were amazing. A great base for a stay in Filey. The apartment had everything we needed (except an iron!) and was clean and bright.

    Facilities were more than adequate for a family of 5 and provided welcome refuge on the not so sunny days! A lovely sheltered communal garden to relax in also was a bonus. The stairs may be an issue to some but not to any seasoned Filey regulars.

  • "38C The Crescent is in a excellent location for a young family."

    However parking was extremely difficult, and a gamble if you could park anywhere close. It should be noted that anyone with disabilities or elderly having problems with stairs would NOT be able to climb the two storey staircase leading up to Flat C. Loading & unloading on arrival and departure, was hard work and not to be parked out front is very tiring. This flat had plenty of space for our three generation family with fantastic views of the sea from the lounge. The kitchen albeit small had more than enough utensils and crockery providing us no problem in deciding what meals to have throughout our visit. We were all very comfortable in the bedrooms but did find the large settee and chairs very uncomfortable due to probable age and disrepair.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We have taken note of what you say and we have replaced and upgraded the chair in the lounge. Property Owner

  • "Fabulous apartment with the most amazing view."

    Very comfortable beds with high quality linen and fluffy white towels. Loads of kitchen equipment and more crockery than you could use. We have stayed in rented holiday accommodation for many years but this is the best. The only warning would be that the stairs are hard work to get up to the apartment, especially with your luggage but it’s well worth it.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. It is always a pleasure to read such positive reviews. We look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

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.
