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.

    Arundel Mews is tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac yet just yards from all the attractions and amenities of Scarborough, making it a perfect holiday base. This unique, upside down house has a balcony upstairs with views across the town and to the sea in the distance. The upstairs of the property is all open plan with a lounge leading out onto the balcony where there’s a seating area, a lovely place to relax and read or sunbathe. Downstairs there’s a large hallway ideal for storing bikes or surf boards. It’s also unusual in that it has its own parking which is hard to find in the centre of Scarborough. For those of you who wish to leave the car behind you can walk from the train station to the property as it’s just around the corner.
    Guests are spoilt for choice because, within a very short stroll, you are amongst all the restaurants, bars, cafes and shops. Just across the road is the Stephen Joseph Theatre, famous for the world premieres of almost all of Alan Aykbourn’s plays. Along the coast, you’ll find Flamborough Head, Filey and the traditional seaside resort of Bridlington. The RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton is a short drive where, you can observe puffins, gannets, seals and dolphins in their natural habitat. If you wander down to the seafront, you’ll find the two bays, North and South Bay. The bays are separated by Scarborough Castle, perched high on the headland. The South Bay is the livelier of the two with the amusements, donkey rides and attractions whilst the North Bay is much quieter. Both have fantastic beaches that have won awards from Blue Flag and Quality Coast making them ideal for that family holiday. The Marine Drive runs all the way along the two bays and is over three miles long, great for that early evening stroll. If you prefer to have a good hike Scarborough forms part of the Cleveland Way, where you can walk along the rugged cliffs with stunning coastal views and hidden coves. Scarborough also plays host to the famous cricket summer festival where you will see county cricket at its best. Yorkshire has plenty of stately homes and you are not far from most of them. Sewerby Hall, Burton Agnes Hall, Sledmere and the wonderful Castle Howard are just a short drive away. All of them have stunning gardens to walk around. The medieval city of York is only an hour away. If you want to leave the car behind, just walk around the corner and catch one of the hourly trains direct to the centre and spend a day in the beautiful city. There’s so much to see and do in York, visit the Minster, the Shambles or just have a leisurely cruise along the river. For a great family holiday, Arundel Mews has everything. Shop 300 yards, pub 200 yards and restaurant 300 yards.

    Glanmore is a beautifully presented bungalow furnished to a very good standard. The three bedroomed property is very spacious with good sized bedrooms and lounge area. The rear garden is south facing so you get the sunshine all day. The garden is private and enclosed with views across the countryside.

    Cayton is located between Scarborough and the quiet, family friendly resort of Filey, and is a village with all the amenities you would need. There are a couple of shops, a pub and a post office. Cayton Bay is just under a mile away and can be reached by car or by foot, it’s approximately a 30 minute walk down to the sands. This is a very popular beach especially for families.

    Scarborough is the nearest town and here you’ll find an abundance of things to do from shopping, the theatre, restaurants and of course the award-winning beaches. Scarborough has two bays, both very different. The north bay is much quieter with beautiful scenery and a large sandy beach whereas the south bay has the hustle and bustle of a traditional seaside resort with amusements, donkeys, sandcastles and fish and chips, so something to suit everybody. The flat walk along the seafront is over three miles long so perfect for that evening stroll. At the far end of the bays you’ll find the Sea Life Centre, a great attraction for the kids. Further down the coast there’s Filey, Flamborough Head and the traditional Victorian seaside resort of Bridlington. The RSPB nature reserve at Bempton is definitely worth a visit where you can see the puffins and seals in their natural habitat. Yorkshire is famous for its stately homes and there’s quite a few within close proximity of Glanmore. Sledmere House, Burton Agnes Hall, Sewerby Hall and Castle Howard are all worth a visit.

    Exploring the North York Moors is also possible. A steam train from Pickering takes you up through Goathland and on to Whitby crossing the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors and Heartbeat country. The city of York is just an hours’ drive away or you can get the train direct to the centre. Visit the minster, a magnificent cathedral which draws visitors from all over the world. There are open top tourist buses and river cruises that give you a chance to see the city and learn about its fascinating history.
