East Riding of Yorkshire

14 May 2021

We had a lovely holiday in the East Riding of Yorkshire last week, staying in a cottage near the village of Tickton, just outside Beverley. That area feels a lot like the fens of Lincolnshire, with flat fields bounded by straight ditches and big skies filled with stunning sunsets. Beverley is a very nice town, dominated by the impressive Minster, with a long stretch of pedestrianised shopping streets, pretty buildings and little alleyways. We did lots of walking, particularly a little further north in the Yorkshire Wolds around the villages of Huggate and Thixendale where gently rolling hills surround a myriad of almost artificially perfect grassy dry valleys. We also visited the coast, at Hornsea and Bridlington, and it was great to see the sea for the first time in over a year. Above all, after such a long period of lockdown it was just wonderful to be somewhere different: it felt like a much-needed break.
