Shiptonthorpe is a jewel among East Yorkshire’s impressive collection of villages. Situated on the A1079, the main road linking Hull and York, and only five miles south east of the popular market town of Pocklington, Shiptonthorpe is a quiet yet thriving community.
While the peace and quiet offered here is bliss to those seeking the tranquillity of a countryside retirement, many of our residents commute to York (25 minutes), Beverley (15 minutes), Hull (30 minutes) and even slightly further afield.
At the centre of the village standards the somewhat under-stated but still beautiful All Saints Church and its magnificent Lychgate.
With a population of little more than 400, the parish has a lot to be proud of, including a recently refurbished and well used Village Hall in Station Road, a bowls club and an extensive sports field and children’s play park.
Perhaps Shiptonthorpe’s biggest asset though is its location – close to towns for shops, schools and other amenities and yet a five-minute walk will take you into the heart of East Yorkshire delightful countryside.
