With carefully manicured gardens, peaceful duck ponds, and picture postcard cottages, the Yorkshire Wolds are a truly unspoilt gem in our White Rose of the North.
Breathtaking landscapes span the region: from the vast, undulating hills, emerald pastures and enchanting woodlands to the quintessential English villages nestled between each slope. Mostly untouched by the modern world, you’ll walk for miles without seeing another soul, listening to the peaceful chatter of birdsong, and discovering the stunning scenes that have inspired countless artists and poets, including the influential David Hockney.
A haven for cyclists and walkers, there’s an adventure for everyone. Cycle to the top of Garrowby Hill, the highest point in the Wolds, or journey along the 79-mile Wolds National Trail, that stretches through the tranquil wilds of Yorkshire, from the impressive Humber Estuary to the ever-changing shores of Filey Brigg.
Relax and enjoy a slower pace of life. Explore one of the Yorkshire Wolds’ quaint towns and villages, where you’ll discover the same infamous Yorkshire hospitality found in the Dales and Moors, with its welcoming pubs, friendly shops, and community markets. The ‘mini York’ of the Wolds, and voted one of the best places to live in the UK, Beverley has a historic 13th-century Minster, a popular racecourse, quirky side-streets and a lively music scene. Or, head to Huggate, the second highest village in the Yorkshire Wolds and home to England’s deepest well, with a floor 106m below the surface.
Cruise to the coast with your pooch by your side and discover some of the Wolds’ dramatic chalk cliffs, wide golden beaches, and hidden coves brimming with seabirds and wildlife. Take a gentle boat ride past the Bempton Cliffs, and you’ll spot puffins, guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes nesting in the sheer faces.
Beauty, peace, history and friendly faces – you’ll find something for everyone in the unspoilt lands of the Yorkshire Wolds. Book the perfect cottage for your countryside adventure, with us.
