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!

Places to visit on holiday in Yorkshire & Humberside

Many people take Yorkshire and Humberside accommodation with no intention of venturing out into the countryside due to the enormous wealth of vibrant cities in the region. Leeds, Sheffield, York, Bradford and Hull are the largest cities in Yorkshire and Humberside, with both Leeds and York have held the yearly crown of best city break destination in Britain in previous years. The cities and towns of the region have a delightful blend of old and new throughout, bringing them in line with modern life yet holding on strongly to what has made them great. As a result, there is a huge amount of entertainment to be enjoyed, from Opera to sporting clashes all set to the backdrop of historical pride. Some of the best historical sights include the Bradford Mill Village, Leeds’ Victorian Quarter and the Victorian Turkish Baths in York.

A cottage in Yorkshire is also a great base for trips to Cumbria. If you prefer you can also rent one of our cottages in Lake District and make your family holidays in England memorable.

The cottage is absolutely gorgeous. It was spotless warm and comfortable just like home from home. All modern easy to keep clean and tidy.everything you need is there from dog bowls to high chairs. The views are spectacular and all you want is to go for long walks on the beautiful beach definitely worth a second visit

Great find, perfect cottage in a wonderful locatio

5 of 5
This small two bed cottage has everything going for it. Cute and cottagie without feeling your staying in a catelogue! Everything look brand new, except the building which is about 250 years old. So easy - it even has private off road parking and a front garden for the mornings and a patio for the afternoons. Lots of light, lots of sun. Very well equipped with lots of treats in the fridge and thoughtful extras - even the wood burner was set up, ready for lighting. It's even got a burglar alarm. And the views - magnificent. And you don't even need your car,,the 36 bus goes from Leeds to Harrogate to Ripon every 15 minutes. Harewood House is magnificent and do the 5 Mile circular walk around the estate - must be one of the most beautiful walks ever - and end up at Muddy Boots, the locally run cafe for a full English.,we will def be back.
