Walking holidays in East Yorkshire
Lace up those walking boots, remember to pack your thick socks and say hello to fantastic walking holidays in East Yorkshire at Sand le Mere. Our holiday park is perfectly placed for you to enjoy walks in both coast and country, from the amazing chalky landscapes of the Yorkshire Wolds to the breathtaking seascapes of the East Yorkshire coast – both are right on your doorstep!
Whether you prefer a gentle stroll across a sandy beach or a hike across moorland terrain, walking holidays in East Yorkshire offer the best of both worlds. There are so many great walks close by! To help you plan your walking holiday in this beautiful region we’ve put together a guide to some of our favourite walks in the East Yorkshire and along the coast…
- The Yorkshire Wolds Way: At 80 miles long, we’re not going to suggest you tackle the entire length of this scenic route but it can be divided into several, more manageable sections. The Yorkshire Wolds Way runs from the banks of the River Humber, along wooded slopes, serene dry valleys and onto the tops of rolling hills before it descends down in a dramatic finish on the headland of Filey Brigg. There are several sections you might wish to try which vary in length from 8 miles to 19 miles.
- Enjoy a walk around the picturesque Hornsea Mere and you won’t be disappointed. It takes in sections of woodlands, meadows, farmland and the Hornsea Rail Trail. Walking alongside a beautiful nature reserve, there’s also a café here should you need a rest (and a cuppa…)
- Spurn Point is a natural phenomenon that is situated on the north bank of the entrance to the River Humber. This national nature reserve is a spectacular place for a walk and great for wildlife lovers. Spurn Head is only 50 metres wide in places and is made up of a series of sand and shingle banks. As well as bracing walks on this spectacular stretch of coast, you can also enjoy fossil hunting here, with an abundance of fossils to be found.
- The Headland Way: North of our holiday park is the popular seaside resort of Bridlington and one of the nicest walks in this area is the Headland Way. It officially starts at the Priory Church of St Mary in Bridlington, but it can start from other points along the route. The route follows streets and paths to the cliff top towards Sewerby. From here on navigation couldn’t be simpler – just keep the sea on your right until you reach Filey.
- If you like nothing more than to feel the sand beneath your feet then head over to Withernsea for a beach walk. This 3 mile walks is fairly easy and is great for those who don’t want anything to challenging. It starts and finishes at the Pavilion Leisure Centre.
