If you fancy a break in one of Yorkshire’s best-loved resorts, with easy access to the spectacular North York Moors National Park, a holiday cottage in Filey could be exactly what you’re looking for. Filey lies on the rugged North Yorkshire coast, eight miles south of Scarborough. The town started life as a fishing community, and fishermen can still be seen casting their nets from traditional coble boats while a number of the original fishermen's cottages have been tastefully converted to offer self-catering accommodation in Filey. A glorious sandy beach stretches for five miles, from the rocky peninsula of Filey Brigg to Bempton, a nature reserve which is famous for its rare birds. With breathtaking views across the North Sea and plenty of space, Filey Beach is a magical spot for a day of sunbathing, building sandcastles or a bracing dip in the water.
