  • "Lovely, very well equipped property in an excellent location."

    Everything you could need in the kitchen, beautifully furnished and we highly recommend this property. Just be aware if you are arriving when the food festival is on, which is opposite the property as on arrival we had to park about half a mile away! After that, parking was no problem. Our only issue was the TV. It had no BBC channels at all due to the non HD signal having been turned off in January. We contacted the owners who came round straightaway and tried to sort but being the Easter weekend they could only get someone to sort it on the Wed at the earliest. They were very apologetic and we left it at that. However it was disappointing later on to find out that the same problem was flagged on here in January, obviously when the non HD channels had just been turned off. The reply to that comment was that it had been sorted when it clearly hadn't! It is done now for future visitors but was just a shame it hadn't been sorted before now. Despite this minor glitch, we had a great week in a fabulous property and would return again!

    Thank you for your fantastic review. It was a pleasure to meet you both and we are pleased you had a great week and will come back again to the apartment. The glitch with the BBC channel on the TV had previously been reported to us but the guest told us that the issue appeared to have resolved itself. We are sorry you had this issue but we have, as you know ,now permanently fixed the problem by purchasing a new free view box and also installing a new satellite dish outside. The reception we are told is perfect. Thank you again for recommending the property so highly and we look forward to seeing you again . Property Owner

  • "The Garden Apartment is spacious and stylish."

    Stepping into the kitchen from the January chill we always felt comfortable and warm. The place was spotless and well equipped. Location could not be bettered as it sits on a corner two minutes from the beach and two minutes from the town centre. Filey in January is quiet (suits us!) and as the weather was quite good for that time of the year we were able take long walks on an almost deserted beach. We visited Scarbrough andf Bridlington but would also recommened Flamborough Head (watch the seals!) Humnaby (neat little village) and especially Cayton Bay. The Garden Apartment is definatley five star ..... but, what is the deal with the TV? Dont know if the owners are aware but the Sky box no longer supports any BBC station. The Sky remote works when it wants (we even changed the batteries). Why not buy a freeview box and chanel TV through the Wi-Fi? Having said which there were a number of DVD's on site and thanks to Fileys charity shops we added to the collection!

    Thank you so much for your fantastic review. We have recently installed a new TV aerial and a new free view box and added a large number of DVDs. We have also invested in some additional paintings and prints of Filey which have been hung in the master bedroom. Property Owner

  • "The apartment was in a great location and well equipped."

    The only downside to the apartment was that it was quite damp especially the master bedroom. There were also many yellow stains on this carpet which could have been cleaned out.

    Thank you for your great review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday at the Garden Apartment . We are very pleased to see that you have already booked again for 2024. We look forward very much to seeing you again next August. We have arranged to upgrade the bedroom carpet. There was a minor leak from the bathroom in the upper floor flat. This has now been fixed and the small stain will be decorated once it dries out. Since we wrote this response the flat has had new carpets laid all through and has also been redecorated throughout. The feed back for this work has been exceptional. Property Owner

    Central to town centre. No welcome pack, ie tea, milk, and other basics. Cheapest toilet rolls ever and no spare. Bead knife and others blunt. Operating cooker without instructions a bit of a puzzle. If you don't bring anything can't have a cup of tea and need go shopping.

  • "The apartment inside was fine, warm , comfortable and as expected , it had all we needed , fabulous location and would recommend but good be improved with the following updates."

    The outside area needs attention (weekly in my opinion), it needs sweeping weekly( not done in along time ) , patio area needs tidying up and good be so much prettier to sit in & look at , windows outside need cleaning desperately and paint work cleaning down at least once a month. The information on the apartment needs looking at ASAP , much of it is out of date and goes back at least 10 years or more, needs organising into files so its easy to find ,read. We tried to contact the owners got no reply & Sykes too , the lady was helpful & we got standard email back to confirm our/ query call , but again no reply from owners or follow up from Sykes whilst we were there. There is list of people to contact in one of the files , we tried 2 numbers & left messages no one got back to us . The 3rd lady did answer but she was shocked to find out her number was still listed as she no longer works for these people , she also told me that the other numbers i had tried did not either. ( so out of date ) . Wifi code on back of router but its so tiny to read , why not just include in Welcome Pack so its easy to read and on hand . Finally the info on rubbish removal is so poor , listed on 2 stickers and stuck on the local info file . Recycle ?? told to use the council waste bins across the road , no info on glass bottles . Was really disappointed in this as i like to do my bit

    Thank you very much for your suggestions and positive comments, really pleased you thought the apartment was comfy and warm. We've bought a new set of patio furniture and we have now employed someody to attend weekly and attend to the flowers and sweep the outside areas.

The property

Set in a desirable location right on the seafront in the seaside town of Filey is this beautiful and grand dwelling, The Garden Apartment.

Opposite the pretty Crescent Gardens just a few minutes away from the centre of Filey, this apartment would be perfect for a couple retreat to the coast, or a small family holiday to the beach.

Once you have stepped down from street level to the property entrance, make your way into this delightful property, entering the kitchen/diner first where you'll find a beautifully presented fitted kitchen, complete with all the appliances you will need for your self-catered adventure, including a dishwasher and a washing machine.

Enjoy your morning coffee at the dining table and talk over what the day ahead will bring and where to go next, before preparing a picnic lunch to eat later.

For a rainy afternoon when staying in to watch a film seems like a better option, relax in the sitting room on either the large leather sofa, or take up space in one of the armchairs, and get the gas fire going for some extra warmth.

When it's time to head to bed, there are two bedrooms to choose from; a king-size with an en-suite shower room, and a twin room, decorated to an excellent degree with matching bed-spreads and a cream and gold hued theme running throughout, you will look forward to winding down in these splendid rooms.

Along with the en-suite, there is another bathroom which features a bath.

Back outside the property there is a raised patio furnished with a table and chairs, so you can enjoy some sun on your doorstep and maybe a bit of alfresco dining too.

There are seven miles of stunning beach practically on your doorstep, so take advantage of this and get out on a beach walk, stopping for a paddle in the sea or a spot of sunbathing.

If you manage to walk all the way down the beach you can visit the RSPB Bempton Cliffs Seabird Centre, where there are excellent viewpoints and nature trails for spotting seabirds, including Puffins from April to July.

Filey itself is home to a whole host of wonderful eateries and restaurants and the all important fish 'n' chip shops!

The Garden Apartment is a delightful property that will take you back in time with its classic style and architecture.

About the location


Scarborough 7.7 miles; Bridlington 10.5 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.
