About the location


Kirk Sandall 7 miles; Goole 10.5 miles; Doncaster 12 miles.

The bustling market town of Thorne lays half way between Goole and Doncaster in South Yorkshire, on the plains of the Humber Estuary. With a wide array of shops, tea rooms and pubs, Thorne has excellent amenities and a regular farmer’s market. Take a walk along the extensive canal footpaths and venture along the Peatlands Way, a circuitous walk around the wildlife areas of Thorne and Hatfield Moors, passing to the north of the town. Bunting's Wood is an area of community woodland, created from agricultural land and is well-worth exploring. With good surrounding road links, there is easy access to York to the north, Doncaster to the south west and East Yorkshire’s coastal resorts of Bridlington and Hornsea, to the east. A wonderful base for exploring Yorkshire, all year round!
