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.

Sykes Cottages says

Yorkshire delivers the perfect mixture of serene countryside, beautiful coastline, lively and historic cities and quaint villages.

  • Great value
  • Pet-friendly
  • Plenty of choice

Spend a day in and around the historic city of York – don’t miss stunning York Minster and a bit of a fright in the York Dungeons. For dramatic scenery take a ride on the Settle-Carlisle railway or opt for a day’s walking in the Yorkshire Dales and seaside fun in Whitby or Scarborough and the quaint fishing villages in between.

We have personally selected over 600 stunning cottages in Yorkshire, sleeping between 2 and 28 people. Choose from cosy love nests and quaint stone-built cottages to contemporary apartments and spacious family homes. Locations range from the glorious coastline to the heart of the Dales countryside and charming towns.

Over half of our cottages are pet-friendly so the whole family can enjoy the holiday.

You can cook up a storm in your well-equipped kitchen or eat out at one of the many restaurants and pubs – the region is renowned for its fresh produce and excellent prices. Local fare includes Yorkshire pudding (of course!), parkin, Wensleydale cheese and Yorkshire curd tart, usually available at local markets.

With more than 25 years’ experience, our cottages have been handpicked to ensure that you have the perfect holiday. We have more than 15,000 cottages across the UK and Ireland and are rated “excellent” by TripAdvisor – more than 96% of our reviews are rated with 4 or 5 stars.
