Yorkshire

Take a look at our new Inspire and Explore section for the ultimate guide to holiday activities in the Yorkshire Dales.

The county of Yorkshire has a lot to offer visitors with a varied landscape of dales, moors and coast, a rich historical heritage, fascinating cities, market towns and picturesque villages. Yorkshire has a very distinctive character and is rightly considered one of Britain’s premier holiday destinations.

Once you arrive in Yorkshire you’ll see why it’s called ‘God’s Own County’. Take for example the wild, beautiful expanse of the Yorkshire Dales, which actually consists of lots of different Dales each with their own unique character, covering in total some 554 square miles of heather moorland, rich pasture land, and characterful Dale’s villages and of course dry stone walls. Much of this area is protected and forms the famous Dales National Park; the perfect place for walking and cycling amongst some of Britain’s most stunning landscapes.

To the east is another National Park; The North York Moors National Park extends all the way to the Yorkshire coast. This is a place of wide open spaces and wind swept heather moorland, an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways as well as hidden valleys where you’ll discover pretty villages. It’s also home to the North Yorkshire Moors Steam railway which runs from Pickering to Whitby (and back) and is a great day out for both adults and children.

The Yorkshire coast has been attracting holidaymakers since Victorian times and is renowned for its pretty fishing villages and bustling coastal resorts such as Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington. Here you’ll find family friendly clean sandy beaches and plenty of activities for visitors of all ages. The picturesque town of Whitby clusters around its fishing harbour where fishing boats and pleasure cruisers come and go. High above the town Whitby Abbey dominated the skyline and can be reached with a vigorous walk up some 199 steps.

To the south are the family resorts of Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington. Scarborough has two lovely horseshoe bays with golden sands and plenty to offer families and couples looking for a traditional seaside break. Filey and Bridlington also have lovely beaches and coastal promenades.

And there’s plenty more to Yorkshire including the wonderfully historical city of York, internationally renowned for its medieval architecture that includes one of the finest buildings in Europe; York Minster. Then there’s the Yorkshire Wolds; a quiet and peaceful place of undulating countryside and market towns. To the south of the region in West Yorkshire is Bronte Country and its dramatic brooding open moorlands and of course connections with the Bronte sisters.

    VisitEngland Silver Award for Green Tourism

    In the heart of North York Moors National Park you will find Craven Garth, a family run working farm nestling in the beautiful Valley of Rosedale and surrounded by stunning scenery. This cluster of traditional cottages has been renovated from the old barns and approved by VisitEngland National Quality Assessment Scheme to welcome walkers and cyclists. Look closer and you will discover historic abbeys, castles and priories. Walking, cycling and horse riding could have been invented for the North York Moors, with breathtaking heather moorland, coastal paths, steep-sloped valleys, rolling hills and fragrant pine forests to explore all in the same day. Take to the trees on a rope swing in Dalby Forest, or hire a bike and explore a landscape of ruins, legends and endless horizons. Step back in time with Britain’s most popular heritage steam railway and enjoy stunning scenery along 18 miles of railway through the North York Moors National Park to Whitby. From Pickering’s well-preserved castle to the Gothic splendour of Rievaulx Abbey, the landscape is peppered with places of historic interest. Unearth Bronze and Iron Age settlements at Roulston Scar, experience life during World War II at Eden Camp, or visit Ryedale Folk Museum for a day of historic fun. As you and your family will quickly discover, few destinations are as historically rich, or revealing. And when you are ready to take a break, set a course for the charming market towns and a hearty pub lunch and back to Rosedale for Yorkshire food at its finest. Or simply relax in your cottage in front of a log fire. There are tea rooms, pubs, restaurants and a bakery within 2 miles.
