  • "Apartment was lovely."

    Nice decor and very clean. Bed in bedroom was very comfortable but the sofa bed not so. Also no sheet or duvet cover available for sofa bed. I left a message with the number listed as a contact but received no response. Also no pass for leisure facilities but luckily our family were staying in another cottage which did provide a pass, so we managed to access the facilities using this. Other amenities such as dishwasher and washing machine in apartment were very welcome. Didn’t use either TV so can’t comment on these.

  • "This was our 2nd visit and we were not disappointed."

    Warm, comfortable, well equipped with a really comfortable bed and pillows. We stayed over New Year and were very lucky with warm weather which meant we could go in the sea every day and the highlight was New Year’s Eve on the beach. Would thoroughly recommend this as a base especially if you enjoy walking on the beautiful beach.

  • "There was only one thing that I was a bit disappointed by was there were no recycling facilities at the site."

    In the refuse areas there was a glass bin and then general bins but nowhere to put recycling. I was very surprised as it is important to so many people these days.

The property

This contemporary, first-floor apartment rests on a quiet estate within The Bay Holiday Park in Filey.

Just ten minutes from the beach and a host of amenities, as well as offering access to a park and basketball court, The Starfish Shack is a wonderful couple's retreat for a seaside getaway on the North Yorkshire coast.

Step inside the property and discover a contemporary style with touches of a nautical theme throughout.

Head into the neutrally decorated, open-plan living room with laminate flooring and cosy seating area with a Smart TV, a dining table where you can enjoy a romantic home-cooked meal together, and a well-equipped kitchen with wooden units and plenty of worktop space for preparing delicious meals.

The king-size bedroom is bright and spacious with a lovely beach theme, feature wall, ample storage space and a TV, so you can enjoy your favourite shows from the comfort of your bed, served by the fully-tiled, contemporary bathroom, offering a shower over bath, so you have the option of how you wish to start each day.

Outside there is off-road parking and a small grass area at the front of the property, while the park and basketball court can be accessed just around the corner.

There are a few restaurants and shops within a mile of the property, while the beach at Filey Bay, voted the UK’s Best Beach in 2018, offers a 5-mile stretch of sand that stretches as far as Filey Brigg, a long and narrow peninsula on the cliffside and a site of Special Scientific Interest.

Enjoy a stroll around the scenic Filey Brigg Country Park, partake in a round of golf at Filey Golf Club and spend an afternoon exploring the Filey Bird Garden and Animal Park.

A few miles down the coast brings you to the Flamborough Headland Heritage Coast, a rugged peninsula with sweeping sea views, white cliffs and a charming 17th century lighthouse, as well as the RSPB Bempton Cliffs Seabird Centre, a nature reserve where you can enjoy birdwatching and walking a variety of scenic nature trails.

Head north up the coast to the popular seaside resort of Scarborough, with its two sandy beaches, separated by its imposing 12th century castle on the headland, as well as the North Bay Heritage Railway, a museum, Alpamare UK water park, SEA Life Centre and the Japanese-inspired, tranquil gardens of Peasholm Park.

From here, you can easily access the North York Moors National Park and the lovely Dalby Forest, offering woodland trials for cyclists and hikers amidst 8000 acres.

The Starfish Shack is a great base from which to explore North Yorkshire's coastline and countryside.

About the location


Filey 3 miles; Scarborough 10 miles; Bridlington 8 miles.

Located on one of the most naturally beautiful stretches of the Yorkshire Coast, the Bay Filey is fronted by six miles of golden, sandy beach and is an exclusive development of traditional styled holiday cottages, off the A165 Filey to Bridlington road. Filey is a popular choice and is reminiscent of childhood holidays – an elegant and tranquil seaside town boasting a beautiful, award-winning beach, charming shops and plenty of activities for all the family. Filey Beach, with miles of golden, sandy beach nearby – recently voted the UK’s Best Beach in 2018 – there’s always plenty of room for the little ones to let off some steam and for the adults to walk for miles uninterrupted. Or try your hand at water sports such as sailing or surfing or just settle down in a deck chair with a good book and enjoy the sunshine. The Coble Landing is lined with boats and kiosks selling coffee, tea, seaside snacks and even those ever-popular bacon sandwiches, The Coble Landing is a must to enjoy the views before a walk along the spacious promenade, dotted with coastal themed sculptures. Discover the Fily Brigg, where you can walk to the tip of this narrow rock peninsular during low tide and maybe see a seal, sunbathing on the rocks. The cliff top above The Brigg forms part of the Country Park, which is popular with picnickers, birdwatchers and hang-gliders and is the start of The Wolds Way. Filey Museum is a past winner of Discover Yorkshire Coast’s Small Attraction of the Year award, is housed in a building dating from 1696, and is crammed with fascinating memorabilia, including an extensive photographic archive. Dalby Forest is an excellent choice for cyclists, where they can enjoy a challenge at Dalby Forest, or perhaps follow some of the Tour De Yorkshire route and tackle the famous Cote De Harwood Dale or just pedal village to village along the idyllic country roads of the nearby Wolds and admire the views made famous by leading artist David Hockney. Bird lovers will love the nature reserve at Bempton Cliffs to see the 250,000 guillemots, gannets and puffins who flock there to raise their young between April and August. It is a haven for birds and animals, including an important colony of great-crested newts and has an interesting Visitor Centre. Scarborough is 20 minutes north of Filey where theatre goers can enjoy the world premieres of Alan Ayckbourn plays plus Scarborough Open Air Theatre attracts many world-class artists – recent concerts have included Britney Spears, The Beach Boys, Little Mix and Tom Jones!
