Holiday Cottages In Yorkshire To Rent

Holiday Cottages in Yorkshire

Yorkshire is a dream destination for a cottage holiday. With its rolling dales, dramatic moorlands and historic towns – not least the city of York – there’s more than enough to keep you and your family busy for a fortnight. There are some excellent holiday cottages in Yorkshire to choose from, whether you’re after something close to York, Whitby or Leeds, or something more remote near to the region’s many hiking and cycle trails.

Yorkshire, known for its openness and hospitality, has so much to offer tourists, which is why it remains popular with holidaymakers from all around the world. You’ll find lots of top-notch cottages in the region, so if you’ve got something very specific in mind there’s a good chance you’ll find it! Need a pet-friendly hideaway close to Yorkshire Moors? Or what about something cosy in Whitby, with excellent sea-views and the unmistakable romance of the British seaside?

What to do on a cottage holiday in Yorkshire

Yorkshire is one of the biggest counties in the UK, so there’s plenty going on to keep you and your family busy. You’ll find lots of history, especially in the medieval town of York, where you can visit the magnificent Gothic cathedral of York Minster, built in around the 13th century, or perhaps take a walk through the winding narrow medieval streets that characterise the Shambles. The seaside town of Whitby has a different historic flavour, made famous by Bram Stoker as the landing point of Dracula, it still retains a Victorian-era character alongside amusement arcades, shopping centres and numerous modern tourist attractions.

Picturesque Yorkshire, as well as being home to some amazing cities and towns, is famous for its stunning natural landscapes and national parks. Both Yorkshire Moors National Park and Yorkshire Dales National Park are picture-perfect for some cycling, hiking or wildlife spotting, or you could head towards the Yorkshire coast for some incredible cliff-top views.

The choice is yours when you choose Yorkshire cottages. Self-catering accommodation packed with character is perfect for any budget or tastes, and ideal for spur of the moment romantic getaways or busy family holidays with the dogs in tow.
