Members of the public brave the cold on Filey Beach.

“There’s five miles of lovely sand that’s ideal for families and most of it is dog-friendly as well.

“I run a guest house in Flixton and the majority of guests go to visit Filey Beach.”

Reviews of Filey Beach on the site included one person saying: “Absolutely gorgeous beach! Could be abroad with this place!

“Very clean, picturesque, easily accessible.”

Another said: “Amazing family trips! The beach is great and the sea isn’t too deep for the little ones to also play.”
