Make a holiday rental property or cottage in Yorkshire & Humberside your home away from home

The Yorkshire and Humberside region covers a huge amount of land from Grimsby to Darlington, taking in vibrant cities, stunning stretches of coastline and magnificent, wild countryside.

Things to do on holiday in Yorkshire & Humberside

A holiday cottage in Yorkshire & Humberside is the perfect base for an English walking holiday. The landscape is so varied, from the rugged cliffs of the coastal paths to the wild, windswept moors and undulating hills of the Yorkshire Dales, that you will be able to find a completely different walk for each day of your holiday in Yorkshire and Humberside. Whether you are heading to a holiday cottage in the region with a sturdy pair of walking boots, a saddle and bridle or a bicycle pump, you will be spoilt for choice of terrain. Some of the best places to get out into the Yorkshire and Humberside countryside include the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the Peak District National Park, the North York Moors, Ingleton Waterfalls, Bridestones Moor or Bempton Cliffs Nature Reserve on the coast. Wildlife thrives in the unspoilt regions of Yorkshire and Humberside, and many happy hours can be spent in the Bempton Cliffs RSPB Park or Blacktoft Sands or rock-pooling in Robin Hood’s Bay.

There are around 270 miles of waterways in the Yorkshire and Humberside region, much of it highly suited to leisure. Fishing is a very important and popular activity in Yorkshire, and permits, advice and information can be found in a huge number of towns and villages. Alternatively you can go sailing, water skiing, jet skiing or even surfing in Scarborough.

There are over 100 miles of undiscovered coastline in Yorkshire and Humberside. The famous spit at Spurn Head is constantly moving its beach boundaries, but the best beaches can be found in the hidden coves and fishing villages which line the coast. The wide, flat sands of Bridlington have made it a traditional favourite, but the spectacular cliffs of Flamborough Head may be more your style. That is the wonderful thing with taking a cottage in Yorkshire and Humberside; if the surroundings aren’t absolutely perfect, travel a few short miles!

Having the steam train so nearby is a great starting point for days out - ride out and walk back. Whitby has plenty of good places to eat and a fun atmosphere.
