    Wildcamping Filey/Bridlington Area



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    We shall have to visit the Buckton area for 3 or 4 days next week and should like to know of any suitable spots for overnight camping in our motorhome. We were hoping for Flamborough but perhaps there are other places you can recommend. Would like to remain within Bridlington/Filey area.

    you could spend the day parked on filey country park then move to the road which is cut off behind the plough pub on the scarboro road

    The public camping/caravan site at filey at the back of the sailing club closes at 5pm. You can then get a over night late arrival ticket for around a quid this allows you to top up your water empty your toilet and if your gone by 9am thats all you pay.

    Filey, etc

    After our visit to the Bempton RSPB reserve, we stayed overnight, with the intention of revisiting cliffs at dusk and/or dawn, but rain put us off (there would be little to see). If you are not an RSPB member, there is a car parking charge - support them!
    We had thought of Lebberston (listed wild camping site) near a PH, but it seems that it was a layby on the old A165, now converted to a wide grass verge. We were better off at Bempton.

    Better, quiet locations:
    Reasty Hill Top, parking area for walks and remote viewpoint around Barnes Cliff at SE 964944/54.336 -0.517, plus pull-ins on road to SE

    Parking area (view point) between Silpho and Hackness at SE 968910 / 54.306 -0.514

    Forge Valley, with several parking places between SE 984875 and SE 989856, e.g. 54.2723 -0.4911, 54.2700 -0.4896. There is a footpath (board-walk) through the valley, and one parking place refers to birdwatching.

    The listed places near Saxton on A64 and B1249 (Willerby Brow), and Bainton (A614) look OK

    Also, 2 large loop laybys north of Market Weighton
    SE 878439 / 53.8839 -0.6653 SW bound (the larger one)
    SE 882445 / 53.8992 -0.6594 NE bound
    Keep them wheels turning,

    Hi,

    As you approach Brid, there are a couple of lay-bys, one on each side of the road, that could be suitable, but not exciting.

    Alternatively, fork left to Bempton and make your way to the RSPB Bempton reserve. The car park is permanently open, you can fine a quiet space and take a short walk on well made paths to the top of the cliffs and viewing platforms to see the various seabirds, gannets, fulmars and possibly puffins. But there is a 5 parking charge for non-members of RSPB (not sure how that works overnight). Alternatively, head for the Flamborough Head lighthouse car park (not sure of any restrictions, but it has been used before).
    Keep them wheels turning,

    Henry
