The most remote village in the Yorkshire Wolds, Thixendale stands at the meeting place of six valleys, surrounded by stretches of chalk grasslands. It is most known for its location near the midway point of the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail and is a popular centre for walkers. During the 18th century, Thixendale became part of the extensive Sledmere estates, under the ownership of the Sykes family. A succession of Sykes owners improved the cottages and civic buildings to give us the 'model estate' look that much of the village retains today (though most of Thixendale is no longer part of the Sledmere estates).
