Holiday Cottages In Yorkshire Dales To Rent

Holiday Cottages in the Yorkshire Dales

Whatever time of year you choose to book your Yorkshire Dales Cottages, this part of England never fails to astonish. Both the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are protected, giving you some idea of just how unique and special the scenery is in the area. Each part of the Dales has its own distinct character. Book one of our extensive range of holiday cottages in the Yorkshire Dales close to the South Dales and you’ll be closer to civilization, yet still surrounded by wild and rugged beauty. The North Dales is straight out of a Bronte novel, with expansive heaths, ancient, crumbling walls and ancient barns. To the west, you’ll find small, rustic villages with plenty of charm.

Holidays in the Yorkshire Dales have immediate appeal for couples who want to enjoy some time together against a wildly romantic backdrop. Whether it’s cosying up around a warming fire or taking a gentle stroll across the moors, there’s no denying the impact of the stunning scenery. For families booking one of our Yorkshire Dales Cottages, there’s plenty to keep younger visitors entertained and to make your break a memorable one.

What are the best family attractions in the Yorkshire Dales?

If you’ve booked one of our holiday cottages in the Yorkshire Dales near Leyburn, be sure to pay a visit to the wonderfully-named Forbidden Corner. While it might be advertised as being for kids, this attraction is equally appealing to adults. Packed with imposing follies, secret passages, hidden doors and some extremely eccentric statues, this a day out that the whole family will enjoy.

For families who like to get out and about, Brimham Rocks, near Nidderdale, offers a very rewarding challenge. The rocks themselves have naturally formed into weird and wonderful shapes, creating some superb climbing opportunities and offering breathtaking views across the Dales. There are plenty of places to enjoy a picnic, so pack a hamper and get your climbing boots on.

Ingleton’s White Scar Caves prove that all the best scenery isn’t always above ground. Book a tour and you’ll encounter expansive underground chambers, dazzling rock formations and subterranean waterfalls. The caves cover around four miles and a tour usually takes around an hour and a half.
