  • "The location of this property is ideal, near the leisure centre and just a short walk from the beach."

    The sofa was a bit uncomfortable and is not the one pictured on the website. The bed was comfortable but is very low to the floor so difficult to exit if you are tall. The flat is decorated in an attractive manner and looked clean when we arrived. On closer inspection, though, it was clear it needed a proper deep clean. There was extensive black mould in the washing machine, a deep line of grease/food waste in the dishwasher, a used pod in the Tassimo machine (which hadn't been cleaned), thick scale in the kettle, crumbs in the cutlery tray, men's beard hairs in the dresser drawers, a light bulb that was out, and the thermostat needed batteries so wouldn't work. We brought these issues to the attention of the owner and she said she would make sure the flat was in much better condition for the next visitors. This wasn't of any help to us, though, since her cleaner only works Saturdays and so wouldn't arrive until after we left. We reported these issues to Sykes as well but they said all they can do is pass them along to the owner, which we'd already done. We wouldn't return to this property because of all the cleaning we had to do (including buying kettle descaler) just to bring it up to a reasonable standard.

    Hi thank you for your feedback but I have to point out that you called me with your issues on the Thursday late afternoon as you were due to leave Friday. I did try to get our cleaner in for you as she works everyday, not just Saturday as you put in your review, but as it was last minute she couldn’t go that evening for you. I do feel that as you brought all the details to our attention the day before you left that maybe some were made in the week you were staying. We hope you find satisfaction with the next place you book. We are sorry you didn’t enjoy our lovely seaside apartment as much as all our many returning guests do. Lisa and Andy Property Owner

  • "A lovely, comfortable, warm and clean, first floor apartment, ideal for breaks away with the pooch and family."

    It is conveniently situated for lovely long walks on the vast beach or along the cliffs and around the flower meadow. The pool and other facilities are also easily accessible. Initially, we had concerns that the apartment would be noisy as it is directly across from the restaurant and pub. Noise, however, was minimal. Plus, the bedroom is at the back of the property and so it was extremely quiet, enabling a good nights rest. Parking is only allowed in the parking bays and NOT on the roadside. The bays closest to the apartment, however, were largely occupied and on occasion it was necessary to seek out a vacant space elsewhere on site. This only presented an additional short walk though and it did not spoil an enjoyable stay! Have stayed on The Bay several times and will return again soon!

Offering spacious accommodation, this Filey self-catering apartment would appeal to a couple wishing to enjoy the excellent on-site amenities and to be within easy reach of the traditional seaside towns and the gently rolling countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds.

Inside this Filey apartment, the bright and airy open plan living space provides comfortable seating, with a contemporary style, well-equipped kitchen.

Tastefully decorated and furnished, this self-catering Filey apartment is surrounded by communal grounds, with two small lakes and picnic areas.

On this delightful complex, there are a swimming pool with steam room and sauna, gym and beauty facilities, tennis courts, putting green, fishing and bike hire.

A pleasant stroll brings you directly onto a lovely sandy beach, whilst the seaside resort of Filey offers an unspoilt coble landing, beautiful gardens and long promenades.

Enjoy beach combing on Filey Brigg or partake in afternoon tea overlooking the beach from one of the hotels.

A little further along the coast lies Flamborough Head and Bempton Nature Reserve, with bracing cliff top walks abounding with nesting sea birds.

Why not explore the countryside of the Wolds, maybe following the David Hockney trail from where his famous paintings originated?

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.
