Skipsea- East Ridings Yorkshire

Skipsea is in the East Ridings of Yorkshire and is a place for people who enjoy the more quieter holiday and days out experience.

It is in-between Beverley and Bridlington and you can spot the other bays from the beach such as Flamborough.

 

Skipsea Castle dates back to 1086 and the mound and a few ruins are only what’s left of it, and it dates back to the Iron Age. The site is 278 feet and the mound is 2,500 years old.

There are lots of haunted tales around Skipsea such as the white ghost who haunts the castle grounds, and the headless horseman

The beach is narrow, but it allows you to walk to other bays around the area and there are opportunities to try fishing.

For keen walkers, there are lots of trails sign posted, and when you are finished, the town has a local fish and chip shop.

Skipsea also has lots of camping and caravan plots, if you plan to stay longer.

 

Moorlands and Beningbrough

 

Moorlands and Beningbrough, two of my favourite places to visit.

Moorlands is a nature reserve and it’s a great place to take your children. You can discover the local wildlife on the trail and check out the treehouse. Around the reserve, you can see some great tree carvings too.

 

 

Beningbrough is more known for Beningbrough Hall, but it offers some great walking trails too. It is 370 acres long and is very dog-friendly. One of my favourite times of year to come is October because it’s great for conker picking.

The best thing about these places is they are absolutely free to visit, so if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to spend the holidays, I would recommend these.
