While visiting a friend who had moved to Bridlington we had an afternoon in Filey, I was surprised to find this beautiful little seaside town...

Filey is an English seaside resort with a friendly atmosphere, offering restful 'get away from it all' holidays. A fishing town on the North East coast of England, Filey has enjoyed a reputation of being a seaside resort since Victorian days.

If you want an active holiday, take the beautiful views of Filey Bay with Filey Brigg to the north and Bempton Cliffs and Flamborough Head further down the coast or just to quietly relax in peaceful the surroundings, Filey can meet your needs.

Within a short distance are Scarborough and Whitby to the north and Bridlington to the south.

Another fishing village I really lov is Morro Bay which is located on the Pacific Coast of California about half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles, we came across it quite by accident while driving from San Francisco down the Pacific Coast Highway on our way to Los Angeles, we've stayed many times over the years. Our first time we found a fabulous motel with great views of the sea and right on the main street (not really a main st lol) We were in California a few years later and went back to Morro Bay and looked for the same hotel only to discover that it'd been washed into the sea by the El Nino, It was so sad to see where it'd been and all the lovely memories we had of our time spent there.
Below is a clickable pic of John walking toward the harbour with Morro Rock in the distance..around the corner on the left are all the little shops and restaurants, it's a lively bustling place especially on weekends when it's difficult to get a place to stay!

I have to agree, Filey is a beautiful little seaside resort diane, we live not far from bridlington so are able to visit all those places you mentioned very easily anytime we like and we often do Very Happy

If anyone's ever coming over to Bridlington and wants to meet up with tellconer and myself just let us know and as long as TC isnt working we'll sort something out

No Snowqueen but we go as often as we can and love it there, we've been to quite a lot of places over the years but there are still places, Texas is one of them, that we still want to visit.
We're going to take the grankids to florida this month, they're old enough now to all enjoy it I think..

That's very nice of you Kaye kiss you're lucky to be able to just pop along for an afternoon to Filey..I thought I'd been before as a child untill I got there and realised I hadn't! I will be going again now though..

Over last weekend I went to a friends wedding in a fantastic place called Ashton in Northhamptonshire. The signpost into the village has a turquoise butterfly on and all the paintwork of the thatched cottages surrounding the village green have the same colour doors. The reception was held at The Chequered Skipper which also has a butterfly on it's pub sign.
We had a brilliant weekend at a fab wedding in a beautiful setting...I would certainly return and spend more time there.

Ashton is a village and civil parish about 0.75 miles east of Oundle in the east of the English county of Northamptonshire.

Ashton was re-built in 1900 by the Rothschild family for estate workers. Since 1965 it has hosted the World Conker Championship traditionally on the second Sunday of October. This is now held between Ashton and nearby Polebrook.

Ashton Wold was built in 1900 for The Honourable Charles Rothschild. The architect was called Hackvale and the house is in the Tudor style. Two cottages were added to the village in 1945 in the same style; Pevsner refers to Ashton as a model village. The cottages are Tudor style and thatched.

Here are some pictures, just click to enlarge..
