Free things to do can be anything from a walk to a cycle ride. Other free things to do that people enjoy doing include star gazing, visiting a heritage church or taking a cliff top walk. There are several Nature Reserves nearby including Danes Dyke and Filey Dams, looked after by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.


Which Stately Homes Are Nearby? 

If you love a stroll around a stately home, then East Yorkshire is the place to be! Sewerby Hall, Burton Agnes, Burton Constable and Sledmere House are all close by. Find out more here: Many will now be preparing for Halloween, Bonfire Night and the festive run up to Christmas.


Museums Along the Yorkshire Coast 

The Yorkshire Coast and the surrounding countryside are steeped in history. Scarborough includes The Rotunda, The Art Gallery, Scarborough Maritime Heritage Centre and Scarborough Fair ( The town also has a magnificent Castle, parts of which date back to the Roman period ( In Bridlington, the Bayle Museum is worth a visit along with Bondville in the town (


Something Different  

If you want to see nature at its best, then RSPB Bempton Cliffs is spectacular. Towering cliffs, soaring seabirds and an attractive shop and café make this a great place to visit. Then a few miles down the road, you’ll find Flamborough Head including it’s dazzling white lighthouse, cafes and heritage walks (


Shop Local 

Our local business love to meet visitors to the area and our retail outlets are varied and different. From specialist chocolatiers to local breweries, from traditional butchers to independent cafes, supporting regional producers can be part and parcel of a staycation. From September onwards, it can also save you time and money if you start the festive shopping in the Autumn. There are many beautiful gift boutiques offering one off and bespoke presents you won’t find anywhere else.


Walking in the Autumn 

The Yorkshire Wolds are famous for the sweeping hills and hidden valleys. This means it’s also a stunning area for walks. We’ve mentioned the Yorkshire Wolds Way before, yet this is such a stunning walk which can be tackled in sections. There are many public bridleways and footpaths criss-crossing the countryside around Wold Newton, too. See our very own informative walking blog with lots of hiking ideas (


Entertainment in the Autumn 

The Summer is famous for its shows and events … the Autumn is no less entertaining! While the venues are a car ride away, they are definitely worth getting tickets for. The Spa in Scarborough hosts lots of different entertainers, including Swan Lake 20th October; Scarborough Northern Soul Weekender 21st, 22nd and 23rd October; Nashville 28th October; Dick Whittington in December as this year’s pantomime (

Bridlington Spa is also an excellent venue for top class entertainment. This Autumn’s line-up includes Ralph McTell 7th October, The Feens 12th November and the Nutcracker for festive entertainment ( Please note all dates are correct at time of posting. Please check before you book/travel to any events mentioned on this page.


Festivals in the Fall 

While Summer is traditionally THE time for festivals, the Autumn is also thronging with things to do. From September onwards, there are festivals taking place throughout the season. Filey International Food Festival takes place on 15th and 16th October. This foodie event is a must for food lovers. With a global theme, there are stalls galore offering anything from artisan olive oil to freshly made cakes (

The Great Outdoors

The leaves might be falling from the branches of trees, yet it’s a lovely time to enjoy the great outdoors! Autumn is so colourful here in the Yorkshire Wolds. Autumn’s rich tints of red, gold and amber make for some spectacular scenes. We are spoilt for choice for outdoor venues in our area. Dalby Forest is spectacular and is a car drive away. The North York Moors National Park also has scores of walks, a visitor centre and more ( Filey Brigg is stunning (take care with the tide, though). Scarborough boasts its sweeping Marine Drive which links the South and the North Bays. Keep an eye out for conkers on the ground and the wildlife starting to prepare for winter. Squirrels start to scrabble around hiding away their winter stores of acorns and other goodies ready for the cold weather.


Places to Eat 

One of the joys of a short break is time away from the kitchen! Whether it’s a pub lunch, a takeaway or a fine dining experience, there are plenty of places to book a table and enjoy a culinary treat. Fish and chips are a must on the coast and the towns of Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington have a great choice of fish and chip shops. And being on the coast means you must have an ice cream! There are some fine dining eateries nearby where you will need to book a table. These include The Farrier in Cayton and the Copper Horse in Seamer (


What To Bring With You This Autumn 

As with any glamping break, you need to be prepared with lots of warm clothes, extra rugs, a hot water bottle, scarves, hats and gloves. We tend to have a good September and October so you can layer up or layer down as needed. Other items you might want to borrow and/or bring include binoculars, your smart phone (for photos, please note, no Wi-Fi onsite here at Wold Newton), proper maps for your walks, a flask for a hot drink and your walking gear.


Looking Ahead to 2023 

Before we know it, Christmas and the New Year will be here. It will be a different festive season as our late Queen will not be giving her speech this year. King Charles III will be in the ‘hot seat’ instead. This leads us nicely onto the prospect of the King’s Coronation, which at the time of writing has not been announced. Many people are thinking it will be in the Spring or in early June, which might tie in with the 70th anniversary of our Queen’s Coronation of 1953. Therefore, there is bound to be a long Bank Holiday weekend either in addition or replacing one of the dates, below. Key dates next year include Good Friday 7th April followed by the Easter weekend; May Day on Monday 1st May (the first time it’s fallen on the traditional May Day in several years); Late Spring Bank on Monday 29th May; August Bank Holiday on Monday 28th August. Book your 2023 break today!
