The Bay Filey Holiday Village

The Bay Filey Resort

The Bay Filey Resort

Set on the North East Yorkshire coast between, Scarborough and Bridlington is where you’ll find the Away Resort’s ‘Bay Filey holiday complex’ - a luxurious holiday site set in meadowland that contains a large lake, rich with plant and wildlife set on the very edge of one of the most stunning beaches in England that runs along the whole bay, within ten minutes’ walk from your accommodation.

The Bay Filey resort is an award winning development of over 800 holiday homes that range from 5 bedroom luxury cottages,  1 & 2 bedroom apartments and 2& 3 bedroom luxury Meadow Lodges.

The site is pristine and well maintained, with perfectly mowed lawns, and grass verges, not a sign of litter, and with thoughtful details throughout.

Anyway, to the park reception and get booked in. The staff speedily obliged and provided all the information we would need to get the best out of our stay. We were provided with a map of the site showing where we were, and how to get to our Meadow Lodge, and directions to all the onsite facilities. 

The Lodge

We were staying in a Lodge that could sleep four people, with one large double bedroom and on-suite shower room and toilet, the other bedroom was a two person room with two single beds, again with an on-suite.  

The kitchen was well set out,  kitchen sink, electric hob, dish washer, food cupboards, fridge-freezer, crockery, utensils and cutlery. This opened onto the four-seater dining area, which in turn opened onto the living room fitted with settee and chairs, modern electric fire and a large TV.

But the best was outside - the balcony had great views and even better night skies to sit out in the evening with a drink of wine or your favourite tipple and just soak up the atmosphere under a starry sky.

Eating Out

The site offers two choices, The John Paul Jones Bar and eatery takes pride of place in front of the leisure area, where you can dine in style.

The John Paul Jones provides a full menu of popular dishes plus daily specials in a relaxing, family friendly atmosphere. With a menu that included mains like Fish & Chips, (I can honestly say one of the best I have ever tasted), Axle Jack Belly Pork, 8oz Sirlion steak, and Axle Jack Salmon. Great starters and great desserts. Children, vegetarians, and those with special requirements are also catered for.

The bar also has an extensive range of beers, wines, spirits, and soft drinks available.

Walks: There are numerous walks to take whether it be beach walks or rambles that take in the picturesque lakes and surrounding countryside they are all beautiful. We walked from the Scarborough end of the bay all the way to the Filey and Bridlington end and back again along the beach. A very tiring but extremely satisfying and stunning venture.

Filey Bay Resort was a beautiful experience to enjoy, the resort was exceptional, the place was stunning, and the is so much of interest all around you.

One thing you get from a Away Resorts Holiday is the social aspect, which unlike a hotel stay they are so much more open and relaxed, it is being outdoors together that always seems to make people mix so much better. In the evenings, families gathered around outside on the large balconies, while the children played together happily, and all under a beautiful  moonlight sky.

So whether it’s a couples break, a family holiday or a crowd of friends, (some of the Lodges cater for ten guests) on a getaway you will find plenty to enjoy there, and you are always looked after by the superb team at Bay Filey.
