The Wolds Essentials

The writer Winifred Holtby, born in Rudston, described the Yorkshire Wolds as ‘fold upon fold of encircling hills, piled rich and golden’. Holtby perfectly captures the beauty of this tranquil and gentle countryside with its rolling hills, chalk landscape and rich wildlife. The 79-mile Yorkshire Wolds National Trail makes this region the perfect place for those who love the great outdoors – miles of walking paths and cycling trails provide the adventure of a lifetime, from journeys through woodland to discovering the Yorkshire shoreline.
