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

Although Yorkshire and Humberside is no longer an official county of England, the region term is still useful for describing the region of northeast England. 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!

It has a separate lounge to a v large kitchen diner. The house is so beautifully furnished and has everything needed in the kitchen to fully cater for a family on holiday we didn't need to eat out at all. The kids were v happy with TVs in each bedroom and games and dvds were a lovely touch. Having access to the beach is great although this house is at the far end of the Bay, which means a slightly longer walk, it has the advantage of being really quiet as no one else walk past it like the others properties. We used the swimming pool on site and had a drink in the pub which has the advantage of allowing dogs in! We will definitely stay at this property again as it was the perfect holiday house for us!

Located next to all of the Bishy Road amenities, including cafes, restaurants and a deli and only 10min stroll in to York. Owner also very polite and helpful.

Clear directions were provided from Chris about how to find the cottage and where to park. On arrival lights had been left on in the property to welcome us along with lights in the garden. Tea coffee milk etc had been provided along with a few extra lovely touches. The cottage was immaculate and in a fantastic location. There is a tea room/cafe opposite the cottage and a lovely welcoming pub around the corner. We walked into Bridlington along the sea front which was very enjoyable. We will definitely be returning to this beautiful cottage that is clearly well looked after and every little thing had been thought of. Thankyou for a fantastic weekend xxx
