This is a flat beach forming part of Bridlington Bay, a sandy stretch of coastline that stretches on for many miles southwards, down to the Humber Estuary. This makes the beach perfect for walking with dogs allowed all year round with no dog restrictions.
There is pay-for parking available at Auburn Farm, very slightly raised from the level of the beach.
There is public toilets and The Cow Shed tea shop near the car park.

Starting at the Crown and Anchor pub in Tickton, which is unfortunately closed now,(however the car park is still open for use) You can walk for miles by the side of the River all the way up to Tophill low reservoir and nature reserve, alternatively you can park at Tophill low and start in reverse if you wish.

Tickton to TopHill Low Nature Reserve

Personal favourite of ours at Potters Paws.
It’s a 30min drive across the Humber bridge.

Brilliant figure of 8 walk, credit to ifootpath which is where I found this walk!

Twigmoor Woods

The wide sandy beach located in front of the East Riding village of Mappleton is ideal for dog walking. This section of North Sea coastline is known as Holderness and is situated around 3 miles (5 km) south of the seaside resort of Hornsea.

Remember to always check tide times.

Mappleton Beach

Brilliant 2hour walk, around the full reservoir through the woods and along the river to the small waterfall and grassed area, amazing place for the dogs. Parking was free but very full as it was such a popular place (for good reason), it's got a café - Bank view café - see our review here.

Paths are well formed for wheel and pushchairs for the main woodland inner walk, we did the large loop which was slightly rougher but amazing views from the top, a moderate level of fitness would be required and comfy footwear.

Langsett Reservoir

A 5 mile circular walk from the village of Malham in the Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire. The route takes you through classic limestone scenery and visits three iconic sites – the waterfall of Janet’s Foss, the steep gorge of Gordale Scar and the beautiful limestone pavement and impressive natural cove of Malham Cove. The limestone pavement has been made famous on the large screen, most famously featuring in the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. 

The walk follows a mixture of footpaths and tracks alongside rivers and through grass pastures. There are several climbs and descents throughout. You will need to negotiate steps, kissing gates, gates and stiles. You will be sharing some of the paths with sheep. Allow 2.5 hours. 

Janet Foss & Malham Cove

A circular walk of about 5km (3 miles), within the gardens and parkland of Swinton Estate in North Yorkshire. This loop gives you chance to see the walled garden, the deer park, the spring garden, the coffin pond (with its beautiful stone bridge and old boathouse), the old quarry and ravine (with its cascading waterfalls) and the top lake.
Entrance Fees apply (£5 per adult and £2.50 per child in 2019). The walk has several steady gradients throughout, plus a couple of steeper sections near the quarry. It follows a mixture of paved paths, stone paths and unmade woodland paths, which can be muddy or uneven in places. Close to the quarry and ravine, there are sheer and deep drops at the sides of the paths, so please take extra care with children and dogs. You will need to negotiate three simple metal gates and several flights of steps, but there are no stiles on route. Allow 1.5 hours. Parking area is in the Country Club and Spa. Approximate post code HG4 4JH.

 A walk from the Hayburn Wake inn  takes you through the wooded valley that leads you to picturesque Hayburn Wyke waterfall directly onto the rocky beach . The dramatic, almost sheer cliffs covered with dense woodland vegetation provide the backdrop to this secret and very special place, be mindful when taking the cleveland way of the sheer downs close to the ath on the cliffs, you will then follow a public pathway sign pointing you to the old mine bridle which will lead you back to the inn.

Hareshaw Linn and take a magical walk through an ancient woodland, crossing no less than six bridges to reach a beautiful nine-metre high waterfall. the walk is 3 miles from the carpark which is free. walk is quite easy some incline in the first part of the trial, there is a great picnic area to have a rest half way into the walk.be cautious as some parts of the path is very narrow with steep edges so be mindful with dogs or children. You will see lots of mini waterfalls on the way but when you come to the end and you see the stunning waterfall at the end take a moment to admire the beauty of this natural formation.

Danes Dyke is a great exploring woodland, follow the trails to find the hidden beach. There is a carpark which charges during peak seasons, its not wheel chair friendly due to the uneven path and stairs, we wouldn't recommend it to anyone with any mobility restrictions.
