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

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.

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.

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!

Good location just outside Whitby but Sandsend beach very close - perfect for the dog. Flowers, eggs & milk left were much appreciated. Pauline very kindly posting us items that we'd left in the house by error. We intend to return.
