Beach glamping pods near Filey guide


Camping and glamping in Filey

Between the seaside resorts of Scarborough and Bridlington, Filey offers simpler days by the seaside. Its long sandy beach is perfect for paddling, swimming and sandcastle building and it' got a lower-key attraction all of its own with a promenade, beach huts and a bandstand just off the shoreline. It's a great launching pad for walks on the 109-mile Cleveland Way which starts at Filey Brigg, a peninsula a mile north of the town. Camping and glamping in Filey and its surroundings gives you access to wilder and quieter stretches of the Yorkshire coastline but keeps you within reach of the kiss-me-quick entertainment of the busier neighbouring resorts and offers easy access to the stunning Yorkshire moors too. The area's been attracting holidaymakers since Victorian times and there are plenty of places to stay but here at Hipcamp we steer clear of the large-scale holiday parks and caravan sites that dominate the coast and look for smaller, independent camping and glamping sites. We've only given the thumbs up to the ones that we think offer something special whether that's a classic campsite in a special location or luxury glamping in pods, yurts and bell tents.

Thing to do in Filey

Filey's golden sands are where it's at if you want a paddle in the sea, lunch with a sea view or a stroll along the prom. The town centre has independent shops and cafes and a little museum where you can learn about its history. Filey Brigg, a mile north of town, is where the Cleveland Way National Trail begins. It's a lovely place for walking, running and birdwatching. The same can be said about Flamborough Head, 13 miles to the south, with its iconic lighthouse. It's less than 10 miles to Scarborough which offers the full range of seaside attractions from donkey rides on the beach to boating in Peasholm Park and the Scarborough Sealife Centre. Inland, you can explore Dalby Forest where there's yet more walking, mountain bike trails and treetop adventures, on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors National Park.
