Hedon: head and shoulders above the competition

Hedon: head and shoulders above the competition

East Yorkshire, home to the Humber estuary, Beverly Minster and The Deep is also home to another gem tucked away on the east coast, Hedon.

Hedon is a small, quiet town which offers its own brand of peace and quiet. Home to just over 6,000 in the 2001 census, Hedon is well located in the county of Yorkshire. It lies a short drive from Hull and its city delights while it also situated nearby to the east coast of the country and the east coast of Yorkshire.

Along the east coast, just a short drive away, are some great places to visit including Scarborough, Bridlington and Filey. The towns are all charming seaside places which offer a great day out to residents of the region and tourists. All along the east coast from the Humber estuary upwards, there are stunning North Sea views available where on a sunny day you can almost see the continent.

The region also offers delights further infield within the county. The North Yorkshire Moors national park is around an hour's drive northwards towards Whitby and it offers some of the most untouched, natural countryside in Britain. In terms of other nearby active pursuits, residents are well catered for with plenty of exercise facilities and sports clubs in the region. Hull has its own professional rugby and football clubs as well as a host of gyms while smaller towns in the region house lower-league sport.

If exercise isn't your bag, Hedon and the wider region will have you covered in terms of food, drink and shopping facilities. Hull has a vast array of shopping facilities with all the big high street brands and it also boasts a lively nightlife scene. Hedon, as you may expect from a smaller town, isn't quite as happening on a night time. However, it does boast a number of traditional, welcoming pubs and restaurants. There is also fresh seafood available, with the town being located close to the sea.

It's no overstatement to say that Hedon has a whole host of things to offer to those looking at property for sale in Hedon.
