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. Allow 2 hours.

Filey is on the A1039, reached from the A165 Bridlington to Scarborough road. The walk starts and finishes from the West Avenue pay and display car park. From the town centre follow signs for the West Avenue car park, near the golf club. From the south end of the beach, head up the lane following the signs for West Avenue car park. Approximate post code YO14 9BE.

From the car park, head along the quiet lane towards Filey Golf Club. Just before the entrance, turn right following a public bridleway sign along a path next to the golf club perimeter fence. Now on the Centenary Way path, cross the railway bridge and continue through Mustan Grange caravan park, keeping ahead at the waymarked post to the left.

With views of the open countryside to your left, the path joins a single-track tarmac road from the caravan park. Continue ahead to the road and turn left towards the roundabout.

Using the traffic island, cross the road keeping the roundabout to the right, and follow a public footpath sign for Hunmanby and the Centenary Way. Pass through the small metal gate into a field and keep ahead to another metal gate with a stile to its left.

Cross the stile and keep ahead along a track with a Hawthorne hedge to the left and a wooden posted wire fence to the right. Cross two more stiles next to gates and keeping ahead, continue across the field towards a waymarked kissing gate, leading to a short enclosed path with a fence to the right before emerging onto a farm track.

Continue along the track, still on the Centenary Way, passing the entrance to North Moor Farm on the right. At the end of the track – the edge of a residential area, cross the road and turn left along Outgaits Lane using the pavement and wide grass verge.

Just before the entrance to Wrangham Drive, cross the road to turn left along a green lane, marked with a green and white public footpath sign. Pass through a kissing gate onto another green lane, then go through another kissing gate. At a waymarker sign take a right over a beck into a field heading towards another kissing gate with a waymarker. Pass through the gate and continue towards a gap in the hedge into another field – the sign here requests that dogs be kept on a lead.

Continue ahead on the grassy path aiming for a stile ahead in the sparse hedge, to another path through the next field towards the hedge on its left-hand side. Keeping the hedge on the left continue along the path. Where the hedge to the left ends, go through a gap in the hedge in front (simultaneously crossing a beck) and continue uphill with a wire and post fence to the left. On the right is the railway line from Bridlington. Continue along the edge of the field to a metal gate leading to the A165 Moor Road near the level-crossing.

Cross the road then turn left for a short distance on a tarmac path, before turning right at the sign for Lowfield Caravan Park – where there is also a public footpath sign. Keep ahead along the track, passing through Lowfield Farm and into the caravan park – where dogs should be kept on a lead.

Keep following the track through the caravan park, but where it bears right near a white wooden hut, turn left onto a narrow path. At the waymarker post, turn right back on to Centenary Way, over the railway bridge back to the golf club and car park.

Between the car park and golf club there is a lovely, wide green space, where your dog can be allowed to have a good romp around. The beach; a short walk down a quiet winding lane is sign-posted from the car park. Here your dog can have a good run along the seashore – providing the tide is not in of course!
