Filey is the perfect place for those who enjoy a gentler pace of life; a little off the beaten track and all the better for it.
With its glorious sweep of soft golden sand, the beach is one of the best in the country and it’s so huge that no matter how busy it gets, it’s never crowded. It’s also the perfect place to explore fabulous Filey by foot or boat, fly a kite, build a sandcastle or maybe do a spot of bird watching and come spring, you may find yourself face to face with a snoozing seal on the beach. While in summer, porpoise sightings are regular.
The town is full of gentle pleasures, with its Edwardian architecture, quirky shops and intriguing museums and why not follow it up with a trip to the much-loved Coble Landing; a slipway with a picturesque jumble of boats and kiosks.
Take a look at our selection of cottages on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors and Coast, which are perfectly placed if you’re looking to explore fabulous Filey.
