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.

    Ref: UK2047
    This cosy, fourth floor apartment on the top floor of this beautiful Victorian building, enjoys views over the whole of the town of Scarborough with the sea in the distance. This is a very quiet residential area of Scarborough overlooking the church and the square yet close to all amenities.
    There are restaurants, bars, pubs and shops within a short stroll, and the beach is less than a 5 minute walk, or you can catch the South Cliff Tramway which takes you down the side of the cliff from the town to the beach. Walk down through the beautiful and famous Italian Gardens, one of Scarborough’s hidden treasures.

    Once on the seafront there are over three miles of flat promenade to walk along, crossing from South Bay to North Bay, separated by the castle on the hilltop. At the far end of the North Bay there is the Sealife Centre as well as Peasholm Park with wooded walks, tumbling stream and lake where boats and pedalos can be hired, both great visits for all the family.

    The gently shelving, wide sandy beaches at Scarborough have won several awards for cleanliness. The resorts of Filey, Flamborough Head and Bridlington are further south, whilst to the north, Robin Hood’s Bay, Whitby, Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Staithes are all very popular for day trips.

    The RSPB bird sanctuary is just along the coast at Bempton Cliffs where thousands of puffins, guillemots and gannets perch along the rocks. There are viewing points from which to spot all the differents breeds of seabirds that arrive every year, as well as the seals that sunbathe on the rocks below.

    Within an hour you can be in the medieval, walled city of York with its majestic minster standing proudly in the centre of the city. The narrow cobbled streets, city walls, individual shops and fantastic museums make it an enjoyable day for all age groups. Take a trip on an open top tourist bus or river boat and learn about the history of the famous city. York can also be reached by train direct from Scarborough, so why not leave the car at home? All in all, this apartment is a great base to visit the east coast of Yorkshire. Beach 650 yards. Shop and restaurant 400 yards, pub 500 yards.

    Walk up the famous Whitby Abbey, with its 199 steps to get to the top. You will see many children counting them as they take each step.
