The life of Riley - in good old Filey

Molly & Ted sea FileyWell! Who’d have thought that a traditional and unassuming seaside town could be such a spectacular gem?

The sunshine helped, of course, but fabulous Filey, nestling on the North Yorkshire coast and sandwiched between its brash and bustling neighbours Scarborough and Bridlington, offers something special, whatever the weather.

The beach is outstanding, the gardens are colourful, there’s a huge sculpture of a fisherman on the lovely prom and everyone is so friendly!

We stayed at Centenary Way, a Club Listed Site (pictured below) just a short walk from the beach. High hedges lined our way along a meandering path leading to the glorious cliff tops or into the town.

M&T Filey landPlease, please go if you get chance this summer… Filey Town Festival takes place from Saturday 28 June to Sunday 6 July, offering a feast of free entertainment for visitors and locals alike.

As a Yorkshire lass, I’m flying the flag for my county as it prepares to welcome the world through the eyes of international TV crews for the Tour de France “Grand Depart” (5 and 6 July).

Next time, I’ll tell you much more about what we did in Filey, what we saw (you’ll be surprised!) and what Ted and I ate… maybe not such a surprise!
