Why stay here ...

Set on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds, a peaceful quiet setting with far reaching views of the Wolds, ideal for walking and cycling and dog walking, dogs are very welcome on the site.
Located just outside the lovely Village of Goodmanham with its Historic Church of All Hallows and The Goodmanham Arms Ale House with its own micro brewery and home-cooked food and close to the Wolds Way which runs from the banks of the Humber to Filey Brigg, just under 80 miles of walking in the lovely chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds.

Also close by is The Hudson Way Trail a pleasant easy 10 mile walk along the old railway track through the heart of the Wolds from Market Weighton to Beverley.

The Yorkshire Coast is within easy reach, encompassing some of the UK's most rugged and charming countryside, from tiny fishing villages clinging to rocky cliffs to glorious stretches of sandy beaches and the friendly seaside resorts of Bridlington, Filey, Scarborough and Whitby.

The North Yorkshire Moors and Forests are approximately 45 minutes drive away with the charming towns of Malton and Pickering and villages of Kirkbymoorside and Hutton Le Hole and other pretty villages. Pickering is home to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway where steam trains run to Whitby from May through to October.

The Yorkshire forests are well worth a visit with a visitors centre in Dalby village. The Yorkshire Dales are also within an hours drive.

Towns close by are the historic market town of Beverley with its Minster, Racecourse and Beverley Westwood with a large market on a Saturday. Approx 10 miles.

Driffield the Capital of the Wolds a traditional charming market town with a market on Thursdays and regular Farmers markets on the show field. Approximately 12 miles.

The Historic City of York is approx 20 miles away, with its quaint cobbled streets and exquisite architecture, rich in ancient history. Well worth a visit are York Minster, The City Walls, The National Railway Museum, The Castle Museum, The Jorvic Centre and Cliffords Tower.

The port of Hull is some 30 miles away with a good shopping centre and of course The Deep.

Other places of interest locally are Castle Howard one of Yorkshires finest historic houses and estates with breathtaking views across the Howardian Hills. Sledmere House, Burton Agnes Hall and Sewerby Hall are also close by.

Very close to the CL is the course of the historic Kiplingcoates Derby.

The Kiplingcotes Derby is the oldest in England, having taken place every year since 1519. It is run every spring on the third Thursay in March. One quirk of the ancient rules means the second place rider often receives more in prize money than the winner. It is not run over a typical modern racecourse. A clerk is paid 5 shillings (25p) annually for maintaining it.

The Derby starts near to the former Kiplingcotes railway station and finishes at Londesborough Wold Farm.

The course takes in four miles of arduous farm track and field.

Riders must weigh in at ten stones, excluding saddle, horses of any age can be ridden.

All those wishing to enter must gather by the starting post by 11 a.m. on the morning of the Derby.

The winner receives the sum of £50. (However, sometimes it may prove advantageous to come second, as this   rider is the lucky recipient of the sum of the entry fees.)

The rules also state that if the race is not run one year then it must never be run again.

During the harsh winter of 1947 no one was daring enough to take part and so one local farmer took it upon himself to lead a lone horse around the course, ensuring that the historic race would survive During the 2001 foot and mouth outbreak the race was once again reduced to one horse and rider.

Come along and explore this beautiful part of Yorkshire affectionately known as "Gods own County" with lots of things to do and see in this lovely part of the world.

Shower and WC facilities will be available from late summer 2016.

Levelling blocks available.

Our dogs loved it!

Woldsway
Fantastic site. Beautiful location overlooking rolling hills, tucked away and peaceful. Host was welcoming and it is the most dog friendly site you could imagine. Small shower and toilet hut was spotlessly clean and facilities excellent for the price. We will definitely return

A hidden gem

Woldsway
We have been coming here for a couple of years and our Labrador (Koru) loves it and more importantly she loves Julie....this is a fantastic CL with a great welcoming host ..... it's a hidden gem that I reluctantly advise other people visit as it's our "special" place

An Absolutely Beautiful Gem

Woldsway
Woldsway is such an amazingly beautiful place to stay. The site is beautifully maintained, all facilities are spotlessly clean, there is hand sanitizer and bacterial wipes available to use. Julie the owner is so friendly and gives you a really warm welcome. The site is peaceful and tranquil. The site is enclosed which is great for the dogs. If you get the chance try the eggs from the egg shack on site...They are delicious. Highly Recommended place to stay with so much beautiful amazing countryside to explore and there is a myriad of walks around. We will return time and time again to this little piece of Yorkshire.
