We understand these are uncertain times for everyone, so to give you confidence when booking with us we have updated our cancellation policy. You can see the details of this and the other things we are doing to keep our guests safe here.

Clara’s Den is our self catering holiday apartment now available to let – so book with the owners direct for a competitive price! It is a first-floor, one-bed “home from home” situated in The Bay, an award-winning holiday village three miles south of Filey on the stunning Yorkshire coast.The holiday home has free car parking, and your booking comes with free access to an on-site gym and swimming pool, with a small pool-side steam room and sauna. We also offer free high-speed broadband and WiFi.

Clara’s Den has a fresh, clean, modern style complete with a contemporary shower room. The living space has a well-equipped kitchen area with built-in fridge, washer/dryer, dishwasher and microwave, comfortable seating and a dining area. Our maximum occupancy is 2 adults (1 double bed), infants (under 2) are welcome but please note we do not have a travel cot or high chair in the apartment but you are very welcome to bring these from home.

This video shows wonderful aerial shots of The Bay village, Filey Bay, and Filey town with the iconic Brigg.

The beach is a ten minute walk (or a fifteen minute stroll!) from our front door. There is direct pedestrian access to the beach from the holiday village along a pleasant scenic path, opening out on to miles of quiet, unspoilt coastline – stretching from Filey Brigg in the north to the beginnings of Bempton Cliffs (famous for RSPB Bempton) in the south. This gorgeous bay has everything you would wish for in a seaside stay – from clean sand to rockpools and beach cafes – and, being part of the Dinosaur Coast, there are plenty of fossils to be found!

Our apartment would be perfect for a couple or small family looking for a stylish, comfortable base from which to explore the Yorkshire Coast – from Bridlington and Flamborough, stretching up through Scarborough, Robin Hood’s Bay and Whitby to the beautiful coastal villages of Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Staithes in the north. Further inland you can discover the delights of the Wolds and North York Moors, or visit historic towns such as Beverley, Ripon and York. You may also wish to visit Hull, UK City of Culture 2017.

Sorry to all you lovely pet-owning people but our particular apartment is not pet friendly. There are other apartments in the village that can cater for your pets!

Please take a few moments to explore our site, to find out more about the apartment, the village, and Filey Bay. You can also check availability and prices, and make your booking online. If you have any queries please contact us.
