Filey Brigg Caravan and Camping, North Yorkshire

March 9, 2014 1 comment

After what seems like months of a constant deluge of rain, on waking up this morning it was amazing to see a clear blue sky with not a cloud in sight and a strange ball of light in the sky.

The sun! I was starting to think somebody had kidnapped it and run away with it.

Before it did a runner again, we piled into the car and headed to the seaside.

The Yorkshire coast, no less.

Where else?!

Filey Brigg caravan and camping site was our destination, as it’s a great place to visit even if you’re not camping out for the night. (Definitely on our to-do list though.)

Situated atop Filey Brigg, you get a magnificent view of the coastline.

There’s plenty of grass to have an impromptu game of football on, so that’s them happy and sold on the idea already.

As well as a fantastic playground where they could climb as much as they want. SAM_3981

We couldn’t come to the coast without setting foot on the beach though, so we took a little walk down towards the beach, which was about a ten minute walk down a (very scenic) hill.

The last descent tests you (well, it does coming back up, anyway – the 6 year old decided to do it crawling on his knees! 🙂 )

You get a nice woodland walk to keep you focused though.

Then a nice play on the beach when you finally get there.

I think all the sea air and climbing has done some good – they’re sound asleep tonight.

We’ll take a tent and go for longer next time.
