Yorkshire cottages

Mark and David's verdict
With its rugged moors and soft voluptuous dales, Yorkshire serves up helpings of English countryside at its most iconic. Add pretty stone hamlets and historic market towns, castles and walking trails, fishing villages and cosy pubs into the pot and you have a county that delivers a multi-course menu of holiday pleasures.

Spend a day in the historic city of York, home to the stunning York Minster and the fearsome York Dungeons where you’re sure to find a fun-filled fright! For dramatic scenery, take a ride on the Settle-Carlisle railway, or choose a day’s walking in the Yorkshire Dales. Whitby and Scarborough promise seaside fun, with quaint fishing villages to discover in between too.

We are proudly home to over 600 personally selected cottages in Yorkshire, sleeping between 2 and 28 people so you’re sure to find the perfect cottage for you. Choose from romantic boltholes and quaint stone-built cottages, contemporary apartments and spacious family homes. Locations range from the glorious coastline to the heart of the Dales, the countryside and charming towns. Don’t forget your canine companion too, as over half of these superb cottages are pet-friendly.

Make the most of the well-equipped kitchen in your cottage, or eat out at one of the many outstanding restaurants, cafés and pubs.
