Explore the Yorkshire Wolds

Walk, Cycle, Ride

As the name suggests, Garton on the Wolds is situated in the Yorkshire Wolds, a range of low rolling chalk hills extending from the Humber estuary at Hessle to the magnificent cliffs of Flamborough Head and Bempton.

The area includes some of the most fertile agricultural land in the country
and is an archaeological landscape of national importance.

Walking in the Wolds

The gentle rolling countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds provides ideal terrain for walkers and has a wealth of bridleways to explore on horseback.

The Yorkshire Wolds Way national trail covers some of the most tranquil countryside in England.

Sections of the 79 mile walk from Hessle to Filey are nearby (we are around 6 miles from the mid way point at Fridaythorpe) and many are also available to cyclists and horse riders.

The Yorkshire Wolds Way is a good route if you are new to countryside walking with plenty of gentle sections and short circular walks to give you a flavour of the area.

The Wold Rangers Way

The Wold Rangers Way is a new circular walking trail 44 miles in length starting from Driffield town centre.

The trail also features a series of shorter walks or "trods" capturing the unique history of the Wold Rangers, a nomadic group of people who lived off the land on the Yorkshire Wolds.

Sections of the trail follow green lanes just a short stroll from our cottages.
