    “This was our first holiday with our 2 new dogs 1 year olds and what a brilliant place to stay at Denby Retreat the owners have thought of everything to make visitors and their dogs very welcome.”

    The location is ideal with dogs as they look onto the meadows and the dogs loved roaming around it could not have been better.The Bay resort is excellent with every facility available and the beach just a short walk away.

The property

Filey 3 miles.

This modern, spacious first floor apartment is situated on The Bay holiday village, just three miles from the traditional seaside town of Filey.

With light and spacious accommodation, this lovely apartment is ideal for families wishing to enjoy the extensive on-site facilities, along with direct access to an expansive, beautiful sandy beach.

There is a large open plan living area, furnished and decorated in a contemporary style, with a well-equipped, galley-style kitchen, dining area and comfortable seating, while the double bedroom has the added benefit of an en-suite shower, in addition to a family bathroom.

There’s also an adult bunk room available, along with a double sofa bed in the sitting area to enable flexible sleeping arrangements.

Outside are extensive communal grounds with two lakes, barbecues and picnic areas for guests, while the popular pub and cafe are just a five minute walk.

On the complex is a leisure centre with a large indoor heated swimming pool, children's pool, sauna and steam room, which guests have unlimited access to.

Outdoor pursuits include tennis courts, a fishing lake and putting green, or why not relax with a beauty treatment, and children may wish to partake in a snorkelling lesson?

A pleasant stroll brings you to a glorious Blue Flag beach, whilst the traditional charm of Filey will not fail to please, with its pretty promenades, colourful beach huts and unique coble landing for fishing boats.

Go rock pooling and crabbing on Filey Brigg, take an invigorating clifftop walk or visit the animal park.

A little further along the coast lies Flamborough Head and Bempton RSPB Reserve, abounding with nesting seabirds on the chalk cliffs, including puffins in the summer months, a sight not to be missed!

With the larger resorts of Scarborough and Bridlington close by and the rolling countryside of the Wolds to explore, this welcoming apartment provides an ideal base for an excellent holiday.

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 beside 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 donkey 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 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.
