Yorkshire is one of Britain’s most diverse, and largest regions. It boasts dramatic coastlines to the east, the scenic Yorkshire Dales to the west and the rugged North York Moors to the north, giving you breathtaking views wherever you chose to stay. This makes Yorkshire the perfect destination for any holiday makers looking to escape the stresses of daily life and retreat to a calm, rural setting.
However, there is more than just the stunning countryside to explore, with endless quirky villages and quaint market towns visit, you will never be at a loss for things to see and do. On the edge of the Dales, you will find the pleasant spa town of Harrogate, or discover the tradition fishing town of Whitby on the coast, or head to the charming and historic city of York.
When on holiday, it’s important to have plenty of private space, allowing you to fully relax. That’s why these great cottages all include a private hot tub and enclosed garden:
