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!

                                                              Afterrecently visiting this gorgeous cottage , I wrote a review. Unfortunately I only gave it 4 stars.......which should have been at the very least 10 but I am unable to alter that score! This is just to put the record straight. I have tried to contact the Home Away site but it is having difficulties as I speak, so please ignore the initial star assessment cos I give it a big 5!

                                                              Our weekend at Irton Manor surpassed all our expectations. The house itself is stunning and both the grounds and the house are perfectly maintained. The inside is spotlessly clean, bright and spacious, with immaculate modern facilities and a superbly equipped kitchen. The rooms are stylish and comfortable, with wonderful views of the garden from the windows and the photos on the site do not really do them justice. The sunny patio overlooking the gardens was the perfect place for al fresco dining, or for sitting and chatting whilst watching the children playing in the enclosed gardens in front. We were a family group of 12 people. 8 adults and 5 children, aged from 9 months to 69, gathered to celebrate a milestone birthday. There was plenty of space for everyone to either be together or to find a quiet corner in one of the many rooms if they wanted. We made use of all the facilities. We swam in the pool at least twice every day, had a birthday BBQ, played table tennis tournaments, billiards, golf competitions, tennis matches, looked for tadpoles in the ponds and badgers in the woods and had a picnic lunch in the secret rock garden with its ponds and waterfalls. The weather that weekend was glorious so we spent most of our time outside in the grounds. The house has everything you could wish for and more. Every detail has been considered and everything you think you are likely to need for your holiday you will find is already there. Karen the House Manager was so helpful both before our stay when all our queries were answered promptly and also nearby for help and advice when we were there. We had a wonderful time at Irton and would highly recommend this fabulous home for a fantastic family/friends holiday. We can't wait to go back. Thank you to Karen, Karan & Paul. The Smith Family

                                                              We booked Foldyard for a hen do for 16 people. The accommodation was beautiful and in a nice secluded and quiet location, which is what we wanted. The hot tub and steam room were fab and a great luxury for us all.
