Filey in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... beach which is great for dog lovers. There is a street directly above the beach where you can walk along, this overlooks the whole of Filey bay. There are quite a couple of places where you can get something to drink and eat on the sea front the nicest is probably the Downcliffe hotel which offers morning coffee or an alcoholic drink and also does nice food. There are several nice ice cream shops too. In the area to the left where the fishing boats come in you can get the usual seaside sweets and snacks and there are also some chairs where you can take a rest and enjoy the seaside view. On the beach are the traditional English ... more

I have visited the seaside resort of Filey since I was a small child and have fantastic memories of the place. We now have bought a static caravan in a little bay just outside Filey so I am now fortunate enough to visit Filey every weekend. Filey has so much to offer yet still manages to maintain its old fashioned seaside resort look and feel. If you like a seafront filled with arcades and noisy games then Filey is not the place for you but if you like a quiet old fashioned fishing village with charm then Filey is most definitely the place for you. Filey beach is a gorgeous stretch of soft sand, between March and November dogs are not allowed on ... Read the complete review

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Filey is a small village situated on the east coast of the UK in East Yorkshire. Further up the coastline is Scarborough and just below is Flamborough and then Bridlington. It is a quaint little old style seaside town and the perfect place if you just want a couple of days relaxation away from everything minus all the commercialization of other seaside places, but does the quiet, almost eerie isolation of it give it a rare sparkle or does it make you want to run towards the nearest civilised area like a mad woman? Here is what I thought.. Why I ... Read the complete review

As a follow on to my Bridlington review I decided to write another resort review mainly because I seem to enjoy writing them. There is a little seaside resort ten miles north of Bridlington on the east coast. This seaside is called Filey. Filey is very much like 'marmite', you either love it or you hate it. I however love it. For such a small place it has so much to offer, you just have to look to find it, but at least you don't have to look far. There are two main areas to Filey. Top or bottom of the hill. Now this hill is quite steep so those with mobility problems might have difficulty as there is limited parking at the bottom. It's best to get ... Read the complete review

Filey is situated on the East Coast of Yorkshire, between the 2 larger resorts of Bridlington (to the south) and Scarborough (to the north). The resort of Filey is a traditional seaside town with many attractions. It is really of the oldie-world type and has approximately 5 miles of golden sandy beaches to boast of. These sands are very safe for children, as the water gently shelves into the North Sea, and are protected by the rocky outcrop known as Filey Brigg. If you want a relaxing holiday by the sea, then Filey is for you. You can watch the fishermen at work tending to their nets or off-loading fish after they have been out into the North Sea. ...
