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 for families – it’s so huge that, no matter how busy it gets, it’s never crowded.
It’s the perfect place to take a walk, fly a kite, build a sandcastle, snooze in a deckchair, or maybe do a spot of birdwatching – Filey Brigg, a peninsula at the northern end of the town. Early spring may find you face to face with a snoozing seal on the beach, and in summer porpoise sightings are regular. Then why not follow it up with a trip to the much-loved Coble Landing, a slipway with a picturesque jumble of boats and kiosks, for a cuppa and a bacon buttie?
The town, too, is full of gentle pleasures, with its Edwardian architecture, quirky shops and intriguing museum. And – it’s official! – Filey boasts the second best B&B in the entire world: TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards 2014.
