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.  You can have lessons in surfing, coasteering and stand up paddleboarding.  Please see our FAQ's for our recommendations.  

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.

After all that exercise you might want to refuel with the Yorkshire Coast's most famous delicacy; fish and chips served with mushy peas and "scraps" as we like to call them in these parts.

Just 10 miles 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 take a look from 6 cliff edge viewing platforms.

There are also lots of lovely places to visit up and down the coast from small covey beaches such as Thornwick Bay, Hayburn Wyke and Flamborough, year round dog friendly beaches such as Cayton Bay and Fraisthorpe.  A little further up the coast we would recommend a visit to gothic Whitby, charming sandsend the picture perfect old fishing village Robin Hood's Bay. 

Despite being at the seaside you don't need to go far inland to enjoy the Yorkshire countryside and woodlands.  Dalby Forest and the hidden gem that is Falling Foss are our personal favourites.

You can also simply watch the world go by from the comfort of the living room at Brigg View Filey.  If you love watching the sun rise over the sea then Brigg View is the perfect spot as you can do so without having to get out of bed!

We have stayed at this flat many times and it is full of family memories so I am a little biased, but I am sure that it would be loved by anyone. The view of the entire seafront is ever changing and ...
