Exploring the Yorkshire Wolds


The Yorkshire Wolds…Yorkshire’s best hidden secret. 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 (Brideshead Revisited), Sledmere House and its large deer park, Burton Agnes Hall and Gardens , busy market 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 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.

To the north lies the world renowned heather clad North Yorkshire Moors, enjoy a picnic surrounded by stunning scenery or a ride on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway to Goathland (Heartbeat country).

The Wolds gives you cultural delights such as beautiful David Hockney landscapes, Robert Fuller wildlife artist with his gallery at Thixendale only 5 minutes from Rose Cottage. Hull city of culture 2017 offers historic maritime delights, wander around the lovely marina along with the spectacular aquarium The Deep.

The Yorkshire Wolds truly has something for everyone and all within an 45 minute drive from Rose Cottage.
