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, Filey 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 the perfect place to take a hike, fly a kite, build a sandcastle or maybe do a spot of birdwatching and come spring, you may find yourself face to face with a snoozing seal on the beach – and 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.
