About the location
York 6 miles; Helmsley 24.3 miles; Pickering 23 miles.
Holtby is a traditional village nestled within the beautiful Vale of York and lies approximately six miles east of York. It has maintained its character and history throughout the centuries. Holtby was recorded in The Domesday Book of 1086 and was valued at 6 gold Carucates showing that the village held a relatively strong economic position. The name Holtby is Viking in origin. The mainstay of the village was and is farming. The nearby city of York needs no recommendation, for it teems with interest for the holidaymaker: the Minster, its medieval walls, boat trips on the River Ouse, York Races, museums (including the famous National Railway Museum, the Castle Museum and York Art Gallery), and the internationally-renowned Jorvik Viking Centre and its "time trip" experience. Summer and winter, there is something to fascinate the whole family. Holtby is an ideal base for touring the surrounding area.
