The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Barmston

As one turns off the busy A165 road and onto the lane that goes through the village you are struck by the rural and farming feel of Barmston and yet if you continue along the no through road you finish up on the cliffs overlooking the North Sea and at the Barmston Beach Caravan Park, a modern self catering holiday village with all amenities making it a popular choice year after year for many holiday makers.

The views both ways along the coastline from the cliff tops here are stunning and on a clear day you can see for miles up and down the coast and out to sea. It is believed that two and a half miles of land has been claimed off the headland at Barmston since the Roman times due to coastal erosion!.

Along with the holiday village amenities there is a Post Office, a small shop and a lively pub called The Black Bull.

The site of The Old Manor House at the west end of the village is now occupied by Old Hall Farm. The only parts remaining of the original house being that of the right wing. The house was built by the Boynton family during the reign of Elizabeth 1. The moat which surrounded the original house can still be seen.

All Saints Church overlooks a pond and the stackyards of neighbouring farms. It contains fragments of a hog-back tomb and some medieval glass. Also a 17th Century Boynton family monument.
