Exploring the Yorkshire Wolds


Peaceful, charming and full of character with glorious undulating hills. A pattern of picture postcard villages such as Thixendale and Millington, country pubs and tearooms to sit and while an hour away. Historic houses such as Castle Howard, Sledmere and Burton Agnes Hallmarket towns of Malton, Beverley and Pocklington to wander around.

The Yorkshire Wolds Way Trail first goes west along the River Humber and then north around the western edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, in woods and across arable land through Huggate & Thixendale, and along the northern escarpment of the Wolds that rises to over 600ft. It travels on ridges and through dry valleys and sheep pasture to reach the coast at Filey and the fine headland of Filey Brigg

The ancient city of York is a short drive away down Garrowby Hill into the surrounding vale. To the east is the magnificent Yorkshire Coastline with Whitby, Scarborough, Filey, and Bridlington with RSPB Bempton Cliffs dotted down the coastline, and to the north the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors.

Cultural delights such a David Hockney landscapes, Robert Fuller Wildlife artist , Hull city of culture 2017 offers maritime delights along with the spectacular aquarium The Deep.

The Yorkshire Wolds truly has something for everyone.
