The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

By Karen Thompson

Thixendale


As we approach Thixendale over a hilltop the pretty little Village comes into view sitting in a dale bottom, the pointed roof tops and roof tiles seeming to rise up the dale side. There are a large number of new properties that have been built all keeping very tastefully to the characteristics of this quaint Wolds Village.

There is a Village shop as well as Thixendale stores which offers an off license and a café to cater for the many walkers that come through the village.

There is a small Church and Vicarage along the dale side and "Round The Bend" offers self catering accommodation. Cricket and rounders is still played on the Village cricket field situated conveniently near to The Cross Keys Public Houses.

The former School house which was once a Youth Hostel has recently been adapted in to a Village Hall,

With sheep grazing on the dale side and a serene peace in and around the Village, Thixendale really is the perfect country retreat.
