This 18th Century Ruin Is The Perfect Romantic Getaway In North Yorkshire

Filey is the perfect weekend or mid-week break. Its picturesque sandy beaches stretch for miles and it has some great places to eat, especially if you’re looking for some gorgeous fish & chips. And the unique Grade II listed building, The Old Folly, originally built in 1825, is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. From the outside, it looks like something straight out of Game Of Thrones. Built out of stone sourced from Filey, it definitely is a stay with a difference.

The Old Folly, which is old ruins, has been transformed into two impressive cottages. It is the perfect stay for a romantic weekend away with the significant other. You can take in the gorgeous architecture while you chill out on the sofa and look at the amazing cosy living room with a rug on a stone floor, Gothic arched windows and insets in walls, vaulted ceiling and original Gothic archway leading to grounds.
