Local area

Three miles from Hull, Cottingham has a long and fascinating history, with castle remains in the village dating back to the 12th century and architecture in the village dating back to various historical periods. What’s more, among its most famous residents was the poet Philip Larkin, whose grave you’ll find in the village’s Victorian municipal cemetery. Also in the area is Skidby Windmill – a working windmill that offers magnificent views over the Yorkshire Wolds. Unusually, the windmill’s original outbuildings are all still standing, some of which now house the Museum of East Riding Rural Life. Browse the museum’s fascinating interactive exhibits, suitable for all ages, and round off your visit with lunch at the lovely little onsite café.
Cottingham Parks Golf and Leisure Club is less than 3 miles away, where you can enjoy a variety of activities. As well as an easy-walking 18-hole golf course and a driving range, there is a health club with a swimming pool, a salon offering a range of beauty treatments and a café bar and lounge serving fresh homemade food.
What’s more, just over 10 miles away is one of the area’s most iconic landmarks: the Humber Bridge. Enjoy fantastic views as you cross this amazing feat of engineering by car, bicycle, or even on foot. And, for spectacular views of the bridge, take a seat in one of the many benches in Humber Bridge Country Park on the north bank of the Humber, where you’ll also find charming walking trails and a pond.
