About the Area
Boynton is located close to Bridlington, in East Yorkshire, in the North East of England. The surrounding area is one of outstanding natural beauty and is rich in heritage. Some of the area's most popular attractions are detailed here.
The east coast harbours several splendid resorts and beautiful landscapes, including those of Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Scarborough, Filey, Flamborough and Bridlington. The massive peninsula of Flamborough is situated on the east coast of Yorkshire and forms one of the most impressive landscapes of this stretch of coastline. The headland extends into the North Sea for approximately 6 miles.
To the north, spectacular chalk cliffs proudly stand up to 400 feet high. They are home to one of the largest nesting sea bird colonies in England. To the east are coves, sea caves and stacks. Rocky outcrops reach into the sea whilst to the south, the cliffs become smaller, looking out across Bridlington Bay.
Flamborough has much to offer the historian, ornithologist, archaeologist, geologist, rambler, day-tripper and local. The headland is a peaceful place, full of interest and enjoyment.
Burton Agnes Hall, situated close to Boynton, is a stately home of immense charm and character. Opened to the public in 1949 by Sir Marcus Wickham-Boynton, it has many unusual features and is fortunate in suffering so little from alterations or additions in its history. It remains to this day a prime example of Elizabethan architecture at its height.
Set in an elevated position, against the Howardian Hills close to Malton, Castle Howard’s magnificent facade is visible for miles around. It is the largest house in Yorkshire and has been the home of the Howard family since the 17th century. It was also the setting for the celebrated TV series, 'Brideshead Revisited'.
Castle Howard is undoubtedly one of England’s grandest homes. Visitors can delight in the many elegant architectural features, the balustrade, frieze and pilasters; the statues and the long arched windows, but perhaps best of all is the beautiful cupola, which crowns the centre of the house.
The great house is set within a 1,000 acre park, amidst beautiful lakes and fountains. Relaxing walks can be taken in the Rose Garden, or visitors can enjoy the shade of the Woodland Garden.
The Yorkshire Wolds are a range of low, rolling chalk hills offering breathtaking views and walks which rise from the River Humber at Hessle and run in a crescent curve (reaching a height of around 250 metres) culminating in the east with the dramatic cliffs of Flamborough Head and Bempton, north of Bridlington.
The Wolds are an archaeological landscape of international importance. Major sites and monuments include examples of Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Age burials, ritual complexes and prehistoric dyke systems. The area is particularly rich in deserted mediaeval villages.
