West Cowick is a village in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) south-east of the town of Snaith and just to the south of the A1041 road and north of the M62 motorway.

Late 17th-century Cowick Hall, lying midway between West and East Cowick, former seat of the Viscounts Downe, is now the HQ of Croda International

It forms part of the civil parish of Snaith and Cowick.

To the east of the village is the late 17th-century Grade I listed Cowick Hall[1] the former seat of the Viscounts Downe which is now the headquarters of Croda International.
