Discover the Wonderful Wolds

Escape the World, Explore the Wolds

Yorkshire Wolds is a relatively small crescent of rolling chalky countryside, arcing from glorious Filey with its miles of golden beaches in the north to bustling Hessle, home of the world-famous Humber Bridge, in the south.

The Yorkshire Wolds Way 79 mile National Trail extends through the East Riding of Yorkshire into Ryedale featuring the widest of wide open spaces, the bluest of endless skies - the Yorkshire Wolds landscape is the perfect place for anyone looking to escape the rat race.

Whether you're looking for an active holiday on two feet, two wheels or four hooves, a culture break, or a relaxing few days just taking in some great views and great food, the Yorkshire Wolds won't disappoint.
