I’m on more comfortable ground recommending cafés and routes on the Yorkshire Wolds, less so accommodation as I live too close to the area to justify an overnight stay on the Wolds. Instead, here is the start of a selection of places that have been recommended or have come to my attention, especially those that are cyclist-friendly. Rather than list them alphabetically I’ve put them in the order they would be reached if setting off on the Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Route in a clockwise direction with Beverley Minster being mile zero. Distances are approximate. If the accommodation is away from the official Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Route then a figure is placed in brackets after the point on the YWCR where the cyclist would divert in order to visit the place to stay…
Butt Farm, Beverley
“Set on our family farm within 180 acres is Butt farm Caravan and Campsite. With new facilities which opened in 2016 we are a short walk of the town centre… Cyclists & Groups (by prior arrangement) are all welcome at Butt Farm.”
Wolds Way Cottages, Low Hunsley
“Our farm has been in the family since the early 1940’s. We are an arable farm situated 7 miles outside the beautiful historic town of Beverley. We have renovated our traditional old farm buildings to create our lovely, spacious holiday cottages. The area is ideally located for walkers, cyclists and golfing groups…”
Nordham Cottages (Hotham & North Cave)
9.5(+ 2 to 3) miles
A range of cottages (some of which can be booked together offering accommodation for up to 10 guests) in two East Yorkshire villages a mile apart.
“We are able to offer safe lockable storage for your cycles and have nearby routes which are tried and tested by our family, local on and off road routes which we are happy to give advice on. There is also great cycling at the nearby Humber Bridge and coastal routes. For real enthusiasts, try the routes from 2015 and 2016 Tour de Yorkshire, and ask Tom for some training cycle routes; he has local cycling knowledge after training for the Sierra Nevada and the Coast to Coast.
For families there is safe cycling for youngsters on the doorstep, a mostly traffic-free zone in the park, where our own children learnt to ride their bikes.”
Manor Farm Cottages, Goodmanham
15(+2) or 19(+2) miles
“Deep in the heart of rural East Yorkshire, Manor Farm Cottage is a beautiful retreat nestled in Goodmanham village at the foot of the rolling Yorkshire Wolds.”
Wolds Inn, Huggate
The Wolds Inn is the highest public house in the Yorkshire Wolds and offers generous portions of food (the hot beef sandwich is a particular favourite and the Guardian newspaper rated theirs as the best pub chips in Yorkshire). Secure bike lock up for overnight guests.
“The Cross Keys Bed and Breakfast accommodation occupies a separate building next to the pub. It is well situated on four major and several short circular walks, and walkers transport is available.”
“Chris & Julie welcome you to The Southgate B&B in the charming village of Hunmanby, Filey. Formerly ‘The Buck Inn’ public house, a historic building in the heart of the village which was once a favourite watering hole for both locals and tourists.”
“Beautifully designed glamping pods in the heart of East Yorkshre”
