The numerous villages to the west of Hull are highly sought after, which is mainly thanks to their perfect combination of being within easy travel distance of the city whilst remaining secluded. They also boast some of the most beautiful properties on the market, from modern new builds to older homes that contain generations of character.
There are a lot of West Hull villages to choose from, including Hessle, Brough, Swanland, North Ferriby, South Cave, Brantingham, Anlaby, Melton, Welton, Elloughton, Kirk Ella and West Ella to name just a few, each of which has its own unique personality.
Due to the generally high value of properties and excellent schools, West Hull villages are primarily occupied by high income earners. Many people living here are business owners or part of a senior management team, plus these areas are a popular choice with Hull City players and local politicians.
That being said, the wide range of property sizes across this region means that there are many suitable homes available if your budget is a little tighter. Occasionally there may also be a property that requires some modernisation, which is perfect for couples who are looking to engage in a rewarding renovation project.
The nature of living in a village is that having your own mode of transportation is usually vital. However, all of the West Hull villages are linked to the city via East Yorkshire buses and a large taxi network is also available day and night. Some are particularly close to Hull as well, such as Anlaby, Willerby and Hessle which merge with the city’s outer limits.
Close proximity to the A63 (which becomes the M62) also makes travelling to other Yorkshire cities and coastal towns extremely stress-free. What’s more, the A1 is also very easy to access, allowing smooth road travel to brilliant destinations such as London and Edinburgh.
One of the lovely things about villages is that they always have their own style and community, which can range from very small and rural to busier and more vibrant surroundings. For instance, whilst the breath-taking Hessle Foreshore overlooks the Humber Bridge and offers unrivalled sunsets, there’s a former clay pit in Welton that was converted into Welton Waters and has its own sailing club.
In these many villages you’ll also find leisure facilities and open spaces that offer the perfect setting for cricket, bowling, rugby, a few rounds of golf or the most pleasing woodland walks you can imagine. Put simply, if you’re considering living in a West Hull village, make sure to put in a lot of research and ask us for our recommendations, as you really are spoilt for choice.
We’re sure you’ll be pleased to hear that the many West Hull villages host some of the best pubs and restaurants in the region. It’s hard to only pick a handful but The Triton Inn at Brantingham, Green Dragon in Welton, The Half Moon in Elloughton, South Cave’s Fox and Coney and Voujon Indian Restaurant in Brough are all very popular with local residents and visitors alike.
