Huggate village actually lies in a hollow, but remains the highest village on the Yorkshire Wolds at around 558 feet (170 metres) above sea level. The high spots around the village give fabulous views across the Yorkshire Wolds.

The village contains many features such as the beautiful parish church of St Mary which is a grade 1 listed building, one of the deepest wells in England, 116 yards deep, which previously supplied the inhabitants of this village with water and also a well renowned local hostelry called the Wolds Inn.

In the 2001 UK Census Huggate parish had a population of 317.

Around the area lie many popular walks such as the picturesque Minster Way, with its steep-sided dales. The Yorkshire Wolds Way long distance footpath passes to the north of the village.
