Getting There

A circular walk from the village of Millington in the Yorkshire Wolds. This walk has it all, a pretty village, dog-friendly pub, a real feeling of wide open space and plenty of green paths, fields and lanes (ideal for some canine romping). A couple of steady climbs reward the walker with stunning views of the Yorkshire Wolds. The route has some steady climbs and some road walking along lanes with wide grass verges. The vast majority of the walk is over wide, grassy paths. You will need to negotiate some boardwalks, gates and stiles (all with dog gates) and you may also encounter cattle in a couple of fields. Allow 2.5 hours.

The village of Millington is located about 3 miles north-east of Pocklington. It is signposted from Pocklington on the A1079 York to Hull road, or approach from the A166 York to Bridlington road, following signs from the Fridaythorpe and Garrowby section. There is roadside parking within the village and the walk starts near the Rambler's Rest tearooms. Approximate post code YO42 1TX.

Loved this walk, the views were beautiful (we were lucky with the weather). The walk through the village is nothing to worry about (as per other reviews) and everything is clearly signposted.

Nice walk, but there is a quite a length to walk along the road. The traffic can be fast so pay attention if you have dogs.

That hill is a hike at the begining. But what a beautiful view and what a lovely route.

Nice leisurely walk through the wolds. The road section isn't too long but make sure you take the second gate on the right not the first otherwise you end up at the bottom of a farmers field like us.

Really lovely walk - quite hilly at the beginning. Ramblers Rest is closed on a Tuesday through summer as we found out today!

Good route but I’m not sure why you would avoid Millington Wood. We dropped down into the wood from the main road rather than do the final 2 fields which made the walk more interesting. Fab views but the hills certainly raise the heart rate!!

We did half the walk as it was hot and a little more difficult than expected. Nice walk but could do with some dog poo collection points.

This is a great walk, the views from the top of the hill are stunning. Our 2 dogs had a fab walk mostly off lead. The pub been closed was disappointing but we got in the car and went 4 miles to Huggate. And had a fantastic homemade steak pie and a glass of rioja, we sat outside in the sunshine and it was definitely a lovely end to a great walk.
