If you are looking to visit a county that has something for everyone, then it has to be Yorkshire. With towns and villages of all sizes, it is possible to spend a few months here without getting bored. If you are booking romantic cottages, then you will certainly have a holiday to remember.
You should definitely take the time to visit the Yorkshire Dales. There are several different dales that you can visit, and you will be amazed to find that each one is different. With more than 550 square miles to explore, you will find yourself surrounded by quaint villages, moorland and the very recognisable stone walls. The whole area is a national park, but you could choose one of the romantic cottages located right within it.
Don’t forget that you can also pay a visit to the North York Moors National Park, where you can climb aboard the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway, which runs between Pickering and Whitby. Whitby is a popular resort and is probably most famous for being Bram Stoker’s inspiration for some of his horror writing. Just along the road is Scarborough, another great seaside resort. Enjoy fish and chips on the sea front, visit the castle or wander around the art gallery.
No romantic getaways in Yorkshire would be complete without a trip to York. This city has a history dating back to the Romans and beyond, and it is the ideal place if you want to see some medieval architecture. The largest Gothic cathedral in northern Europe is here in the form of York Minster. The narrow streets of York are filled with unique shops where you can find unusual souvenirs to take home.
If the shops in York are not enough, then you could head into Sheffield or Leeds, where you will find high street and designer stores – ideal for picking up a bargain or two.Yorkshire also has a very strong literary heritage and was the home of the Brontë sisters. While on your romantic getaways, you could take the time to visit Haworth, the home of the sisters. Even though thousands of visitors come here every month, it never feels crowded.
For romantic cottages, Yorkshire is a great choice, so why not book yours today and get away from it all sooner rather than later? With counties such as County Durham and Northumberland also within easy reach, you have a wide range of destinations from which to choose.
