About Kilham

“Kilham is an ancient market-town, situated in a pleasant and fertile valley, at the south-east declivity of the Wolds.”

Topography of Great Britain (1802-29), George Alexander Cooke

With a history as rich and varied as the surrounding countryside, the picturesque village of Kilham is one of East Ridings’ most charming hidden gems. 

Located on the eastern edge of the Yorkshire Wolds – a series of low, sweeping hills that run west towards the Vale of York – Kilham combines beautiful rural views with quick access to the East Yorkshire coast and its many attractions. Bridlington sits less than 10 miles away, while Filey and Hornsea can both be reached by car in under 45 minutes.


The village itself dates back more than a thousand years and is referenced in the Domesday Book, at which point two ‘thanes’ (landowners granted their territory by the king or a nobleman) held most of the area. 

The land around Kilham has passed through the hands of many owners over the years, notably Thomas Ughtred – descended from an old Saxon family – and William de Thwenge, son of Sir Marmaduke Thwenge, who fought in the Wars of Scottish Independence.

For a long time, Kilham played a key role in the Wolds’ agricultural economy. A major market town, bigger at the time than neighbouring Driffield, Kilham hosted numerous trading fairs and served as a lynchpin in the growth and distribution of grain to London and the West Ridings. Wool, another vital commodity, was sold to mills in Leeds and Wakefield.

As the years went by, and with the opening of the Driffield Navigation waterway in 1770, Kilham’s economic relevance began to dwindle. The population of the town slowly decreased, leading to its eventual reclassification as a village. 

Even today however, indications of Kilham’s agricultural past remain: an old stone tethering block by All Saints church serves as a year-round reminder of the village’s once booming cattle trade.


Despite the relatively small size of the village, residents of Kilham are well served by a range of local businesses and facilities.

A convenience store is just a short walk away from Woldgate Pastures, perfect for everyday needs, while a long-established family-run butchers can also be found around the corner. The village Post Office, located in the middle of East Street, provides everything from banking to bill payments.

Villagers also enjoy two well-reviewed pubs – The Old Star and The Bay Horse – both of which serve food and offer a wide selection of real ales. A fish and chip shop offers an alternative for food on the run.

Those looking for more recognisable high-street names will be well served in Driffield, less than 15 minutes away by car. Stores including Tesco, Lidl, Boyes, Boots and Currys can all be found in the nearby town, supported by a range of banks, bars, hotels and restaurants.

The local primary school – Kilham Church of England – boasts a ‘Good’ rating from Ofsted, including an ‘Outstanding’ ranking for the behaviour and safety of pupils. Described as a ‘happy and caring school where pupils thrive and achieve well’, satisfaction amongst parents is notably high.


Kilham is ideally situated for those looking to combine beautiful countryside living with quick access both to major towns and some of Yorkshire’s very best scenery.

To the east, Bridlington is just 30 minutes by road, with Flamborough Head and its many natural delights just a short drive further. 

Local attractions include Burton Agnes Hall, an Elizabethan stately home with a stunning walled garden, and Sewerby Hall, a grand Georgian house that includes a zoo and woodland walks. 

The Yorkshire Wolds Way, a 79-mile trail from Filey to Hessle, offers cycling and walking through some of the region’s most vibrant countryside and picturesque villages.
