The ancient Village of Rudston is reputed to be the oldest inhabited village in England and dates from Neolithic times.  There have been many priceless historic discoveries over the years including Roman Mosaic Floors and the remains of Roman Chariots and Warriors.  There was a German POW camp in the village during WW2 and the remains can still be seen in the woods.

Rudston is home to the Rudston Monolith, the tallest prehistoric standing stone in the UK at just over 25 feet high above ground, nobody knows how far below ground it goes.  The Monolith stands in the grounds of the 12C All Saints Norman Church in the village and is popular with visitors.

Rudston was mentioned in the Domesday Book back in 1086 when it was recorded as having 5 households, of course it has developed since then but is still a peaceful village and a great place to spend a few days.

The Bosville Arms is only 5 miles from the traditional seaside resort of Bridlington with it's shops and amusements. Just a short drive away there are many great places to visit including Burton Agnes Hall, Sledmere House, Sewerby Hall and Zoo, Skirlington Market, Flamborough Head and Bempton RSPB cliffs.

The sandy beach at nearby Fraisthorpe stretches for miles and is popular with families, dog walkers and horse riders and until the 1990's was also popular with naturists despite the fact that the Yorkshire coastline isn't known for it's balmy climate.

The Yorkshire Wolds around Rudston were the inspiration for famous Yorkshire Artist David Hockney to paint his 'Roads across the Wolds' collection, in fact he loved the area so much he moved to Bridlington for a while. The Wolds have miles of rolling hills and valleys with scenic roads and paths that make it a perfect place for cycling and walking. If you like a challenge maybe look at the the 73 mile long Wolds Way.
