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.

Dog friendly?…

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.

    Hi, I’m a local dog walker and i’ve walked this route many times, its pretty good if you’ve got a Husky, a large dog or a dog with loads of energy. It’s better than walking on Filey beach. Especially since Summer is here and there are some many people on the beach.

    Hi, thanks for your comment, it’s the first one on this walk. Filey beach is lovely but quite restrictive in the summer. If you’ve got any suggestions of walks we can map near you just let us know.

    Have yet to do walk…hopefully next week. It would be really great ifJUST the walk could be printed out…not loads of photos and comments.

      Enjoyed this walk- didn’t allow as much off lead time as I would have hoped as there are a couple of fields containing bulls! Also I’d like to point out that the footpath sign is actually before Wrangham drive and not just beyond which was misleading but easily corrected. Nice flat walk for poochy and my dad!
