Yorkshire Wolds & Coast
The rolling countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds has in recent years become known as Hockney Country and described by artist David Hockney as the land of big skies. The 79 mile Wolds Way national trail covers some of the most tranquil countryside in England with stunning scenery and unique little villages along the way, perfect for walkers and cyclists, or to discover on horseback.
Located in the centre of the Yorkshire Nature Triangle we are within easy travelling distance to East Yorkshire’s top five nature reserves including North Cave Wetlands, Blacktoft Sands, Tophill Low, Spurn and Bempton Cliffs. The RSPB reserve at Bempton is home to England’s largest mainland seabird colony, with over 200,000 nesting seabirds returning to the magnificent chalk cliffs each year.
The coastal towns of Bridlington, Filey and Scarborough are all within easy reach with sandy beaches just a 20 minute drive from our cottages. A little further up the coast is the traditional maritime town of Whitby and the charming fishing villages of Staithes and Robin Hood’s Bay.
Historic towns and cities
A day in the city of York is a must, with the Castle Museum, Jorvik Centre, quaint little streets around the Shambles and the magnificent York Minster just a few places of interest. For train enthusiasts the National Rail Museum is home to the UK’s national rail collection.
The market town of Beverley is one of Yorkshire’s best kept secrets. The splendid 13th century Beverley Minster is worth a visit. Beverley has a wealth of upmarket shops and an excellent choice of cafes and restaurants.
Hull is a vibrant maritime city with a rich and proud heritage and this year’s UK City of Culture. There has been a full and varied programme of events throughout the year with the final season Tell the World running from now until December. The Ferens Art Gallery is currently hosting this year’s Turner Prize until January 2018. Visit the new cultural quarter in the historic Fruit Market and enjoy a pleasant stroll around the Old Town and marina. A regular train service runs throughout the day from Driffield into Hull, taking around 30 minutes into the city centre.
