Filey and the Yorkshire Coast

Filey is situated on the North Yorkshire Coast and is sandwiched between the larger seaside towns of Scarborough and Bridlington.  

Filey has something for everyone; from a relaxing couples retreat to a fun filled family holiday.  Filey is a traditional coastal town and offers plenty of restaurants, cafe's and shops.  You can walk along miles of golden sands from Filey Brigg to the cliffs at Flamborough Head. 

For the more adventurous the East Coast has a growing reputation for watersports such as surfing, kite boarding and windsurfing.  We would recommend a trip to Cayton Bay, where you can have lessons in surfing, coasteering and stand up paddle boarding. After all that exercise you might want to refuel with the Yorkshire Coast's most famous delicacy; Fish and Chips (served with peas and 'scraps' as we like to call them in these parts!)

For the walkers among you, you can enjoy miles of picturesque scenery with both the Wold's Way and the Cleveland Way finishing at Filey Brigg.

A 10 mile drive down the coast, birdwatchers flock to Bempton Cliffs. From April to August Bempton Cliffs are home to 250,000 seabirds including puffins, gannets, guillemots and kittiwakes. Visit the RSPB reserve to catch a sight at 6 safe cliff edge viewing stations.

Well, here we are on our last day at BriggView. The sun is blazing away and the dog's fast asleep after a vigorous run on the beach. Not really much to add from my previous reviews as everything as us ...
