About the location
Hornsea 5 miles; Beverley 8 miles; Hull 14 miles; Bridlington 16 miles.
The village of Catwick is a civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire. It is approximately 8 miles from Beverley and 5 miles from Hornsea's town centre. Catwick is one of only a handful of villages in the UK with no war memorial as all who went to fight in the Great War were lucky enough to return home. Catwick is one of only 13 villages known as a 'Double Thankful' village as all who went to fight in the Second World War were also lucky enough to return home. Suzette, a working horse, also survived the Great War and returned home to graze on the luscious lawns of the nearby Rise Park, the family home of Captain Adrian Bethell. Nearby Beverley, with its 14th century cathedral sized minster is full of history and there are plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from - don't forget to enjoy a day out at Beverley Races! The Deep submarium in Hull, the fascinating city of York, the North York Moors and the East Coast seaside towns of Hornsea, Bridlington and Scarborough are all within an hour’s drive.
