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).

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.

Take the right-hand path, following a yellow way-marker up more steps leading further into the trees. At the top, follow a waymarker arrow to the left onto a flat path which continues downhill to another fork. Turn right and keep straight ahead along a path that follows a fairly straight line, ignoring various paths to and from the golf course and keeping a hedge to the right.

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.

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.

The path leads to a road, which passes the Ship Inn to the left and the Old Forge restaurant and tea rooms to the right. Keep ahead and at a sign for ‘Cliff Top’ turn left along an enclosed path towards the coast line. Cross a tarmac path and head left along the grassy coastal path.

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.

The path turns inland just before the ravine and bears right to a T-junction. Take the left path alongside the edge of the woods to another T-junction, taking the right-hand path down into the trees, back towards the footbridge crossed earlier.

Retrace your steps back to the start at the car park. From the car park, go along a little road to reach the beach. Danes Dyke beach has a quality coast award, with lots of white pebbles and sandy stretches along the chalk coastline. This is a very, very pretty place and great fun for you and your pooch too. When you have finished on the beach, simply return back to the car park.
