There's so much to do

We have some pointers on where to start...

There's so much to do in Yorkshire that you may not know where to start. But at The Bay Filey, we know and love Yorkshire, and here are the best and most iconic ways to spend your holiday.

Robin Hood's Bay

Go crabbing

Forget the deckchairs and dodgems; this is Yorkshire's coastline at its most raw and elemental. Here, brooding cliffs tower over a huddle of red roofed former fishing cottages that spill right down to the edge of the sea, creating a ‘lost in time' getaway for anyone who loves unusual architecture and breathtaking scenery.

Rievaulx Abbey

Historic tranquility

If peace and tranquillity is what you seek from a family day out in Yorkshire, then Rievaulx Abbey is the perfect choice. Set in a remote valley in the North York Moors National Park, Rievaulx is one of the most complete, and atmospheric, of England’s abbey ruins. It’s no wonder it’s one of the most popular visitor attractions in the North.

Castle Howard


Home to the Howard family for over 300 years, Castle Howard is a magnificent 18th century residence set within 1,000 acres of breathtaking landscape in the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of North Yorkshire.

Sewerby Hall

A grade one listed manor built in 1714, Sewerby Hall is one of Yorkshire's most popular examples of an early Georgian house. With extensive gardens, shops and cafes, and even a zoo, there's plenty to explore in this estate, less than 20 minutes from The Bay Filey.


Just on the other side of the North York Moors lies Whitby, an idyllic seaside town known for its charm. Close to Robin Hood's Bay, Staithes, and other quintessential Yorkshire fishing villages, it's the perfect place to discover the North Yorkshire Coast on your holiday to The Bay Filey.

North Moors

National Park

From pretty villages to stately homes, mighty abbeys to magical museums and of course, fabulous food and art, the North York Moors National Park is full of special places with special qualities – that’s a huge part of the reason it’s a treasured landscape, protected for everyone to enjoy.
