Explore the wonderful Holderness peninsula

Our peaceful landscape is one of England’s best-kept secrets. The flat terrain makes it ideal for walkers and cyclists, and we’re just a few minutes’ walk from the coast. Here are just a few of the fascinating locations nearby.

Holmpton Village

About three miles (5km) south of Withernsea and three miles east of the village of Patrington, Holmpton is just inland from the North Sea coast and is your home base for your stay at Elm Tree Farm.  You will also stumble across hidden historic sites from the two world wars.

Local Beaches

Within walking distance you can easily get to Holmpton beach. For those who prefer to go further afield, a short drive will take you to Easington and Kilnsea villages or to the town of Withernsea. All three form part of the larger Holderness coastline.

Spurn Point

Spurn Point (or Spurn Head Spit as it’s also known) is a narrow sand spit on the tip of the coast of the East Riding of Yorkshire, that reaches into the North Sea and forms the north bank of the mouth of the Humber estuary. 

It is over three miles (4.8km) long, almost half the width of the estuary at that point, but as little as 50 yards (46m) wide in places.



This quirky seaside resort forms the focal point for a wider community of small villages in Holderness. 

Its most famous landmark is the white inland lighthouse, rising around 127 feet above Hull Road. No longer a working lighthouse, it now houses a museum to the 1950s actress Kay Kendall, who was born in the town.
