Perfectly situated for walking holidays whatever your level, Wolds Edge offers a great starting point for a number of the region’s more well known walks, or for simply striding out along one of the many local routes.



Bishop Wilton – Flat/Low level
For a straightforward stroll suitable for all abilities you can simply explore the village and surrounding area. The quiet country roads offer flat terrain to walk (or even run if you pack your running things), or push prams and pushchairs. These local routes are ideal for just a 10 minute walk or a simple round the village circuit (approx 40 mins) straight out of the entrance to Wolds Edge. There are some local bridleway and footpaths that are also flat, although not always great for small wheels. It would be worth bringing your boots for these ones through the winter months!

Longer Local Routes

Fangfoss Circuit or Worsendale Hill
There is a super 8km circuit that takes you straight out of Wolds Edge, cross country and along the local roads and back to your lodge with the added benefit of a lovely local pub half way for refreshments Heading over to Fangfoss on this local bridleway and then on footpaths along the road and back, this is a fantastic route for a any day.

You could always try a more challenging 8km route by taking the route up the local Worsendale Hill and across the top of the Wold and back down into the village. Although not for the faint hearted, the view on a clear day from the top is magnificent.
