About the location

FILEY

Scarborough 7.5 miles; Bridlington 11 miles.

Filey is a traditional English seaside resort with a friendly atmosphere, offering a restful holiday. A fishing town on the North East Coast, Filey has enjoyed a reputation of being a resort since Victorian times, set affront the magnificent Filey Bay, a long stretch of beautiful sand, with Filey Brigg to the north with its shallow rockpools. 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, and 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, with pony rides available on the beach, children’s play areas, crazy golf, and candy floss! Nearby, Flamborough Head boasts high cliffs with exhilarating walks, and Bempton Cliffs are a haven for bird lovers. A short drive brings you to the busier town of Scarborough. There is plenty to discover and explore in this lovely area.
