Aike is a village in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated approximately 4 miles (6 km) north of Beverley town centre and lies to the west of the River Hull. It is approached by a 2.5 miles (4 km) no-through road off the A164 road.

The village's name means "oak". In the local dialect, the name was not rounded to Oake, but remained the original Old English āc. The name is pronounced "Yack".[1]

Aike forms part of the civil parish of Lockington. Before construction began on the Beverley and Barmston Drain in 1798 Aike was an island.[2][3]

Aike Grange Stud to the north of the village is a dressage park, and hosts regional competitions.

Sunnyside cottage in the village was designated a grade II listed building in February 1987.[4]
