Barnard Dale Cottage is located next to the River Hull, off Hull Bridge Road, beside the site of the original bridge over the river. The cottage was originally in the hamlet of Hull Bridge, but the village of Tickton has now expanded across the river and absorbed Hull Bridge. The village sits on the edge of the Holderness plain just off the Yorkshire Wolds.
Tickton village centre is about a mile away by foot or bicycle (or horseback!) with a small shop, post office and the Micro Pig Bar at the far end of the village. There is another Restaurant / public house, the Crown and Anchor, immediately across the Hull Bridge (now a footbridge) offering good food and drink.
Tickton has a village hall, 2 childrens play areas, recreation fields, a primary school and nurseries.
Beverley town centre is about 2 miles away, accessible by foot, road, or off road cycle path – the house sits on the popular main cycle route from Beverley to the coast about 12 miles away. Beverley has a bus station with links to Hull, the coast and surrounding villages as well as a train station with direct trains to London. Humberside airport is about 35 minutes by road, while road links to the rest of the UK are good with Ferrybridge services on the A1 being about 50 minutes away.
Swinemoor common (one of four common pastures around the town of Beverley) immediately south of the property is used to graze cattle and horses in the summer months and is a popular destination for walking, nature and for exercising dogs.
