|Danes Dyke Beach and Sewerby|
|Author: DogWalksYorkshire, Published: 02 Mar 2017||Walk rating : Rating:|
|East Yorkshire, Bridlington|
|A 3 mile circular walk from Danes Dyke Beach near Sewerby on the East Yorkshire coast. If you’d like to visit a beautiful and unspoilt white sandy beach that you can let your dog have a good run around on all year round, then this walk is perfect. It also includes beautiful views of the Yorkshire coast with Bridlington in the distance, and once up a little climb through the trees, stays on flat easy to follow paths. |
After an initial climb from the car park, the paths are relatively flat and a mixture of grass and tarmac. The return paths are along the cliffs so some more boisterous dogs might need to be kept on a lead, however the paths are not particularly close to the cliff edge. There are no stiles or livestock on route but you will need to negotiate some steps. Dogs are welcome on the beach. Allow 2 hours.
Danes Dyke Beach is located just east of the village of Sewerby in East Yorkshire. The walk starts and finishes at the Danes Dyke Beach pay and display car park. Take the B1255 from Bridlington towards Sewerby, then follow brown tourism signs for Danes Dyke Beach. Nearest post code YO16 1DW (this is for the golf course so don’t take this access lane, you want a turning off the B1255 about half a mile to the east of the course entrance).
|Start to Golf Course|
Start point: 54.1068 lat, -0.1424 long
Take the Nature Reserve path from the car park to the left of the information boards – don’t head down to the beach just yet! Head down this path (alongside the access road to the car park) for a short distance to a footpath sign for Sewerby Village and the Headland. Take this path, keeping a wall to the left, before heading down steps into the wooded area. At a blue waymarked sign at the bottom, turn right over a footbridge and bear left towards a fork in the path.
|Golf Course to Sewerby Hall|
Start point: 54.1058 lat, -0.1453 long
The path becomes enclosed, and then heads across the golf course along a wide track marked out on each side by fence posts. Ahead can be seen Bridlington beach and a church spire. After passing through some trees, head across an open field passing in front of the cricket club and Sewerby Hall.
|Sewerby Hall to Cliff Path|
Start point: 54.1019 lat, -0.161 long
At a junction sign, continue on towards Sewerby Village, taking the tarmac path straight ahead. This section could be busy, especially at the weekend in summer, so it may be best to put your pooch on the lead.
|Cliff Path to End|
Start point: 54.0999 lat, -0.1654 long
Follow the cliff path with the sea and cliffs on your right - well-behaved dogs should be fine off the lead, as the path doesn’t go too close to the edge. There are commanding views of Flamborough Head in front and Bridlington behind. The chalk cliffs of Flamborough Headland, including Danes Dyke are some of the most important cliffs in Europe for nesting seabirds, including gannets, kittiwakes, guillemots, razorbills, puffins and shag.

My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
