Why you should do this walk…
A 4 mile circular walk from the coastal town of Filey in North Yorkshire. Filey is a charming seaside town with some dog-friendly stretches of beach, ideal for a good romp. If you and your dog need a bit more than a romp along the beach at Filey, this walk will give you an interesting route along green lanes and some touristy areas and also through fields along the Centenary Way.
The terrain is fairly easy, relatively flat through fields and along tracks, green lanes and tarmac paths. There are two short road sections. Whilst most of the paths are enclosed or through crop fields, you will cross a couple of fields that are sometimes holding cattle. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates and a few stiles (which have gaps in the fencing that most dogs will squeeze through). If you want to extend the walk with a visit to the beach, dogs are permitted on the full beach from 1st October until 30 April. At other times they are allowed on the northern stretch from the lifeboat station up to Filey Brigg and on the southern stretch from beyond the beach chalets heading south.
