Yorkshire Wolds

Magnificent architecture and elegant stately homes in stunning surroundings...

Stretching from the Humber Estuary of Hessle to the chalky cliffs of Flamborough, the Yorkshire Wolds is among one of the finest walking areas in the country. Featuring a plethora of picturesque towns, the Wolds are steeped in history and colour and are also home to some of the friendliest folk around.

The highlights include Sledmere House, Burnby Hall (famous for its water lillies) and Burton Agnes Hall, while the natural landscape alone, from dramatic cliffs to sleepy coastlines, make the hike well worth all the effort. Burton Agnes Hall remains one of the finest examples of Elizabethan architecture, while Sledmere House, located between Malton and Driffield, has a fine collection of artworks, antique and books.

Garrowby Hill (on the A166) marks the highest point of the Wolds, standing an impressive 800 ft above sea level, while the wonderful seaside resort of Hornsea forms part of the low lying Heritage Coastline.

While for the most part the surrounding lands are full of crops such as potatoes, barley and wheat, the area certainly doesn't lack colour; the rich soil ensuring it is perfect ground for hemlock, fennel, buttercups, poppies and cowslips. In addition, the land is rife with a variety of birds and butterflies, from Red Admirals to Fritillary and you may even spot the odd deer or two .

In short, the Wolds are a welcome site for any visitor. Full of beauty, history and intriguing landmarks, the patchwork of colour that changes in line with the seasons make the Wolds one of the finest countryside locations in the UK.
