Wolds Way

Wolds Way (Millington to Thixendale – 12 miles)

A total of 79 miles, Wolds Way weaves through the rolling hills, valleys and woodland between the towns of Hessle in East Riding of Yorkshire and Filey in North Yorkshire. You can pick up a stretch of the beautiful Wolds Way from Millington (a 12-minute drive from Wolds Edge Holiday Lodges) and follow it 12 miles to Thixendale. On a clear day, you’ll enjoy far-reaching views as far as the Humber Bridge.


Chalkland Way (Pocklington to Bugthorpe – 10.4 miles)

This 40-mile circular route takes you across the chalky hills and valleys of the western Yorkshire Wolds. It starts at the town of Pocklington (an 11-minute drive from Wolds Edge Holiday Lodges), so you can pick it up here and follow the waymarked path through woodland, fields – and taking in breathtaking views – all the way to Bugthorpe. For a shorter walk, leave your car and simply stroll 12 minutes from Wolds Edge to join the route at Bishop Wilton.

Minster Way

Minster Way (Bishop Wilton to Stamford Bridge – approx. 8 miles, or Bishop Wilton to Huggate – approx. 11 miles)

You can walk part of this 50-mile route from our doorstep, starting at Bishop Wilton (a 12-minute walk from Wolds Holiday Lodges). The full route runs between the Minsters of Beverley and York. Part of the walking route converges with Wolds Way, and it also crosses paths with the Chalkland Way near Millington. You can choose to walk west towards York - across the Vale of York as far as Stamford Bridge (approx. 8 miles), or east towards Beverley, as far as Huggate (approx. 11 miles) – a more challenging route, but worth it for the views from the Wolds.
