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.

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!

Tony the owner was very welcoming and friendly, with lots of ideas for places to go and things to do. Nestled in a fantastic secluded location and spotlessly clean, the cabin has everything you need for a comfortable cosy stay whatever the weather. The welcome basket full of goodies was a nice touch, as was the bottle in the fridge, which was greatly enjoyed by my 21 year old and his visiting friend. The box of Lego brought back fond memories for my 17 year old as he spent an hour building models ( you're never too old for Lego ) A short walk through the woods takes you to the Cinder Path, a disused rail line, which we followed to Whitby. In Ruswarp we spent an hour on the river in a rowing boat, and called at the riverside cafe for a drink. Robin Hoods Bay is a lovely place to visit but get there early as parking can be a problem. We spent our last day in Staithes which is smaller and quieter and has a lovely little beach area. We would highly recommend a stay in the cabin.

Everything provided for our comfort, nothing too much trouble. We were even given a tour of the farm even though it was harvest time. Would recommend to anyone.

The view was overwhelming and calm. We got to experience feeding,cleaning and riding the horses which was amazing.We loved the fact that we could help out on the farm, which we enjoyed more then anything. I personally liked the village and the attractions around it, in addition the food was natural and tasteful. We were welcomed by a very nice lady and two dogs, which we loved. The lady and her husband were a pair of very warm hosts who kept us happy and entertained for the whole time. We also ended the trip with a very friendly BBQ ,which we invited the host to, to say a big thank you for being there when we needed something and making us feel like at home. I am certain to come back with my whole family as soon as possible to view the rest of the beautiful country side and spend some time with the animals. Big recommendations.
