Honeysuckle Farm

Honeysuckle Farm is a family owned and operated open farm in the East Riding of Yorkshire. We are an open farm. Not a farm park so if you visit us expect to see a real working farm with a commercial herd of cows, dairy cows and a flock of commercial sheep. We also have goats, fish ponds, play areas, horses, red squirrels, a café and many picnic areas. We have been open for public visits since 1992 and we offer a unique and quirky experience of what it is like to run a farm with all its fun, challenges and tribulations in the present economic climate. If you want anthropomorphised animals try a theme park. If you want the real deal then visit Honeysuckle Farm to feed animals, watch a milking display (the milk is processed into ice cream on the farm), have a horse and cart ride with one of our huge Shire horses and chat to the farmers. We keep prices very reasonable - compare us to other attractions - and believe that we offer good value for money - feel free to bring a picnic and you can stay on the farm from opening at 10am to closing at 5pm if you like. Give us a try. we look forward to seeing you.

I haven't been to Honeysuckle for quite some time and read the other reviews to check it was still a great place to go. It seems there are additions to when I last visited so we took our 3 year old grandaughter yesterday with promises of seeing all the animals. On arrival we saw a notice to say it was now closed until March next year. It was very disappointing for our Grandaughter as I had to tell her that all the animals had gone on holiday. I'm sure we will try to visit again next year but this is a fact worth knowing. Unfortunately I cannot give a true rating for this venue at this time.

Hornsea Beach

Reviewed By Val A - Hornsea, United Kingdom

The beach has a wonderful combination of sandy & pebbled beach stretches. fishing boats regularly set off & land on the beach and that is a lovely sight to see, as the boat compound is just across the road, so you can see how they are transported from sea to moorings. Dogs are allowed on all of the beach from September to March, with a stretch of beach being inaccessible to dogs between March & September - suffice to say, I love the coastline and the relative peace & quiet of this stretch of the Coast.

Hornsea Mere

The Largest Freshwater lake in Yorkshire and listed as one of the Severn Natural Wonders of Britain. For boating and sightseeing of nature

Reviewed By whothefox - Macclesfield, United Kingdom

Normally, being so close to the sea, you wouldn't bother going to an inland lake, but this is really nice with boats for hire, assorted water sports lessons, pitch-and-put course and a very nice little cafe in a good spot in the bank.
It gets great light and is an excellent place for photography, calm and scenic.
A lovely hidden gem of a spot. Recommended.

Wassand Hall

Open to the public on selected days between the end of May to August you can explore the Gardens, visit the house and enjoy homemade teas in the walled Gardens - please see our website (details above) for dates and details of ticket. Please note, teas only available for ticket holders.

Reviewed By LindylooCleveland - Cleveland

Some people are so lucky. This Regency house was open to the public at the weekend and it is a superb small country house (as against large stately home!). Beautifully set at the and of Hornsea Mere up a gently rising driveway and past a walled garden full of lovely flowers. This is where you will find a tea room serving most delicious cakes and tea . Then up to the house where a very friendly hostess awaits at the door. You will be free to walk about at leisure- there are individual labels on items of interest- that is when envy sets in! Idyllic English country house.

Hornsea Golf Club

Reviewed By Chris1968_13 - Fleetwood, Lancashire

We played this course as part of the East Coast passport. I don't think it's played as much as the others available, probably due to its distance from Bridlington.
However, people are missing out on a very good course if they choose not to play it.
With some scenic holes, challenging narrow drives and well manicured fairways and greens, this is a delightful course.
The clubhouse facilities are top notch too, both for catering and the locker rooms. Towels are provided, should you require a shower.
The pro shop is well stocked and organising buggies was made very simple.
We will be playing here again, the next time we come to the East Coast.
