The Bay Filey is the perfect base to explore the Yorkshire coast.
With more than 100 miles of stunning shoreline, discover secluded coves, beautiful beaches and picturesque fishing villages. Visit the nearby Edwardian seaside town of Filey, with its own five mile stretch of beaches, offering something for everyone.
Moving further north brings you to Whitby where you can discover its fascinating history and walk in the footsteps of Captain Cook and Count Dracula. Go back further in time to the idyllic traditional fishing village of Robin Hoods Bay and explore its ginnels and cobbled alleyways.
To the south lies Bridlington with its flat golden sandy beaches. Both Flamborough Head and Bempton Cliffs are a haven for wildlife. Learn to surf at Scarborough or pay a visit to one of its four theatres. Visit Staithes and walk down the steep bank to the cobbled streets and quaint fishing harbour.
Visit beautiful villages and fishing ports
With its higgledy-piggledy cottages and winding streets, Staithes has the air of a place lost in time. Once one of the largest fishing ports on the North East coast, this coastal hamlet is now a well-loved base for exploring Yorkshire's cliff top paths and discovering the delights of rock pooling and fossil hunting on the small sandy beach.
Go crabbing at Robin Hood's Bay
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.
North York 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.
The historic Rievaulx Abbey
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.
The splendour of 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.
