Self catering heaven. Filey is a real town with real butchers, fishmongers, delicatessen, bakers and grocers for good quality local produce, all self caterers need. Oh and did I mention Sterchis the brilliant chocolate shop. You really do need to try their Chocolate Truffles.The large supermarket chains are also represented in Filey should you prefer to get your shopping for the self catering all in one place.

Other Yorkshire coast towns of Scarborough, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Bridlington,are not far away. For days out Malton, York, Beverley and Pickering are all easily accessible by car, train or bus. Heartbeat country, with the North Yorkshire Moors Steam railway is also very near by. There are busses running from Filey into the North Yorks Moors area should you not want to use a car. Filey has been home to the cameras itself this winter with the filming of Sugartown for the BBC, some of the internal shots were done in the next door cottage. Please note that Filey does not have a pier though, unlike the fictional Sugartown.

Filey is at the end of the Wolds Way and on the route of the Cleveland Way long distant paths making this self catering cottage and idea base. Filey's surrounding area offers many other shorter walking opportunities including the 5 mile long beach at low tide, or Filey Brigg promontory, which is rock pool heaven and protects Filey bay from the north. Why not enjoy the cliff walk to Scarborough, about 2 hours from Filey, and then get the train or bus back. Follow the well signposted footpath from the top of the cliffs above Filey Sailing Club.

There are many bird watching opportunities near Filey with designated areas such as Filey Dams reserve and the world renowned RSPB Bempton Cliff near Flambrough.

Filey Information

Filey is a wonderful traditional English seaside resort with a friendly atmosphere, offering restful 'get away from it all' holidays. An active fishing town on the North East coast of England, Filey has enjoyed a reputation of being a seaside resort since Victorian days and the railway arrived from Hull. The locally caught Filey crab is very tasty and can be purchased just across the road from the cottage at the end of Filey Cobble Landing.

In the Edwardian period, before the second world war, the popularity of Filey as a holiday resort grew. With the building of the crescent the town grew in to a dedicated tourist town.

Obviously the 5 mile long blue flag beach is a big draw to most visitors, bordered by the Brigg with its rock pools in the north and Bempton cliffs to the south. Bempton Cliffs are home to one of the largest sea bird nesting sites and there are dedicated viewing places controlled by the RSPB. Whilst Filey sea front is mostly undeveloped there is a small amusement arcade on the Filey Cobble Landing and a children's roundabout ride. On the promenade is a local fishing themed crazy golf course that is quite challenging.

Filey has various other attraction to enjoy. In Glen Gardens there are a boating lake, adventure playground, putting, crazy golf and trampolines. Not to mention grass to create your own games on. Just to the South of the park is the pitch and putt golf, which borders the full 18 hole Filey Golf Club on the cliffs at the south of town. Visitors are welcome and there are some regular competitions open to all to join in with. So don't forget to bring your golf clubs with you to Filey.

You may enjoy a trip to the Filey Museum and the Filey bird garden.For the more active there are tennis courts both grass and tarmac next to the more sedate bowling green.

Crescent gardens houses the band stand where many different bands play, wonderful planting, a maze and the historic Roman Stones.

Should you enjoy old churches then St Oswalds, set high above the ravine in Filey, is worth visit. You will find a map and all details in the cottage.

There is a lot of speculation that the wreck of the Bonhomme Richard, captained by John Paul Jones, fought a battle with the British off Flambrough head and is wrecked in Filey bay. See ToDo pages for more information and links.
