Northolme Filey North Yorkshire Coast Thumb


Filey is only a short distance along the coast from The Bay Holiday Village. It is a quaint Edwardian coastal town with a selection of individual, interesting shops. Its sandy award-winning beach is an ideal place to spend an afternoon. If you feel a little more energetic, you can explore one of the many nature trails around the town, or across to the magnificent Filey Brigg.

Filey is the nearest train station for The Bay and also has the nearest Tesco Superstore (not 24hr), and cash dispenser. There are many cafés, restaurants, pubs and take-a-ways. A good place to start your break would be a visit to Filey’s Tourist Information Centre.

A walk along the beach from The Bay (tide permitting), into Filey for breakfast, can be an excellent way to start your day.
