The straggle of dwellings that makes up the unspoilt village of Holmpton is well worth a slow wander around. It is said to give a very good idea of what coastal settlements of times past would have looked like, and as such has been designated a Conservation Village. To see a number of really striking houses, take the more southerly of the two roads that lead straight out for half a mile to the sea. At the end, a footpath leads to cliffs above a long and (almost always) deserted sandy beach sweeping around to Withernsea, a small town three miles away along a cliff-top path.
The George and Dragon pub, being so close, serves as a useful annex to one’s tent in bad weather, and rustles up very economical bar meals as well as doing takeaways, particularly welcome after cycling the 46-mile National Byway loop that passes through the village.

Stayed here in September 2013 for a day/night... Lovely little site, feels like the middle of no where with the luxury of the village pub just staggering distance from the tent! Very peaceful and pretty village. Would recommend.
