What to do in North Yorkshire holiday cottages

North Yorkshire rivals anywhere else in the UK for its charm and natural beauty. This stunning region is home to some truly picture perfect towns and villages, notably the village of Staithes, which is built right in the gap between two rugged cliffs. Knaresborough is a larger market town built along the River Nidd and boasts numerous historic landmarks, such as the remains of Knaresborough Castle. There’s definitely something magical about towns and villages in North Yorkshire, picture-perfect and full of charm.

As well as stunning towns and historic landmarks, North Yorkshire is known for its natural beauty. The North York Moors is a registered National park and is comprised mainly of heather moorland. It also stretches all the way to a rugged coastline, designated as a Heritage Coast. The popular and historic resort of Whitby falls within North Yorkshire and is well worth a visit, not least to stand in awe of the spectacular ruins of Whitby Abbey. Watch out for vampires, though, as this is where Count Dracula landed!

You’ll find excellent North Yorkshire holiday cottages dotted all around this magnificent region, so you’re bound to find something that closely matches your requirements, whether you’re after something spacious and pet friendly or a historic property in easy reach of the stunning North Yorkshire coastline.
