|Coxwold and the White Horse|
|Author: DogWalksYorkshire, Published: 25 Feb 2017||Walk Rating:|
|North Yorkshire, North York Moors|
|A 5 mile circular walk from the village of Coxwold in North Yorkshire. This is a good, energetic romp for you and your dog through some beautiful countryside, starting and finishing in the historic village of Coxwold. The Vale of York may be relatively flat, but that doesn’t mean the walk is boring – it’s charming with great views of the majestic White Horse at Kilburn all the along the walk. |
The terrain is easy to moderate, mostly level with just some gentle slopes. The surfaces are mostly grassy paths through fields and on farm tracks plus a very small section of road walking. The fields can be a little wild and overgrown at times and some of the waymarkers may be missing, so the live GPS map on the iFootpath App will be particularly helpful for navigation. There are a few stiles (some of which dogs will need a lift over) and little footbridges to negotiate. You are likely to come across horses or cattle in a few of the fields. Allow 2.5 hours.
Coxwold village is located in the North York Moors, about 18 miles north of York. From the A19 York to Thirsk road, follow signs for Coxwold. The walk starts and finishes in the car park behind the village hall in Coxwold. From the main crossroads in Coxwold, take the Byland Abbey road and the village hall and car park is on the right. An honesty box will gratefully accept a small donation for its use. Approximate post code YO61 4BB.
|Start to Shandy Hall|
Start point: 54.1887 lat, -1.1797 long
On leaving the village hall car park, cross the road and head along a lane opposite, following a footpath sign for the Town Pasture and passing a large tree to the left. Continue up the green lane with a Hawthorne hedge on your right and, at the gate, follow the Public Footpath sign to the left. Head up the lane passing the Faukenburg Arms to the right until reaching the road, where it’s best to put your dog on the lead. Turn right and head along the pavement, passing the church to the left and then the entrance for Shandy Hall on your right.
|Shandy Hall to Twattleton Beck|
Start point: 54.1885 lat, -1.1874 long
Just after passing the entrance to the famous Shandy Hall and gardens on your right, there is a Public Footpath sign on the other side of the road (left) – partly hidden in the hedge. Cross the road and follow this path through a gate, keeping straight ahead (with a Hawthorne hedge to your right and a wire and post fence to your left). At a waymarker post, follow the yellow arrow pointing between 2 and 3 o’clock and head diagonally right towards a metal gate next to a waymarker post.
|Twattleton Beck to Wildon Grange Farm|
Start point: 54.1811 lat, -1.2117 long
Keep ahead along a clear path through a field, towards a waymarked fence post and a metal gate. Pass through the gate onto a grassy path uphill and head towards Angram Grange straight ahead. The path bears to the right of Angram Grange onto a waymarked grassy track. Pass through the metal gate and head towards the trees. As the track continues, the beck can be first heard then seen to the right.
|Wildon Grange Farm to Footbridge|
Start point: 54.1955 lat, -1.2107 long
Pass between the farm buildings to a gatepost with a waymarker sign. Go through the metal gates and onto a track, and continue along it – the White Horse is now to the left, over the hedge. At a house at the end of the track, you will reach a T-junction with the road. Turn right and immediately left to follow a Public Bridleway sign.
|Footbridge to End|
Start point: 54.199 lat, -1.1886 long
Cross the bridge and stile, and follow a grassy path leading straight ahead along the edge of a field with the hedgerow to the right. At the end of the field, cross another stile and footbridge, and continue ahead to a waymarked signpost to Cams Head and Coxwold. Take a left (heading for Coxwold) and head along the edge of a field keeping the line of trees to the left. At a footpath sign, turn right along a clear path across the field keeping to the left of the large tree. The White Horse is once again visible behind.

Really really bad path. Chased by horses who kicked the dog.

Great App - never get lost! by The Parallax View Best couple of quid I’ve spent in a long time. Walks are well described & it’s easy to see if you’ve wandered off the mapped tracks via GPS. Degree of difficulty is useful too - can choose a 2 Welly, 5 mile walk with a pub at the end for a relaxing Sunday.

Wow what a lovely experience it was using your app worked perfectly from the off for the first time found walks nearby we would have never found, brilliant work guys and gals.
This is a great app. Easy to use. Great selection of walks and very uncomplicated instructions, good simple maps. Other walking apps I have tried can be very confusing, this one is just right. Thank you
I used the app for the first time this afternoon. I lead regular ‘Walking for Health’. The app is terrific!
I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
