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.

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 cottage is lovely, it is home from home and has everything you need. We had a call from house manager Suze to talk us through so items which helped. The pubest over the road is fantastic too and is very welcoming and dog friendly. Had a great walk to the white horse. Overall lovely and would recommend and can't wait to come again.
