Hunmanby is a large friendly village on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds. With a population of approximately 5000 it is reputed to be the largest village in Yorkshire. The village is very close by (approx 2 minutes walk) and offers an excellent range of shops, pubs and services. When we stay in South Wing we allow our three young children to visit the village shops on their own and they love the sense of independence this provides.
Hunmanby village also offers you an excellent range of shops to enable you to buy all the ingredients you need to make your own meals. The butchers, which is on the main road round the corner from the chippy, sells British meat only in addition to an excellent range of home made pies.
Further along the high street is bakery and deli, with a superb green grocer next door, an optician and an old fashioned ‘we sell everything' type shop next to that. Across the high street you will find a pharmacy, newsagents, and a well stocked Co-op mini market that is open until 10pm Monday to Saturday. Beer, wines and spirits are available in both the newsagents and the Co-op.
There is a cash machine outside the Co-op and a post office further along on the same side of the road.
Hunmanby is connected to Filey, Scarborough, Bridlington and Hull by bus, the number 121 which runs approximately hourly. Hunmanby also boasts a train station which connects to Hull to the south and Scarborough to the north. The train station is a short walk from South Wing.
