Yorkshire as a Holiday Destination

The Yorkshire Dales National Park needs little introduction and boasts some of the best views, landscapes and sights in the whole of England. From limestone cliffs in Malham, to ancient stone walls and miles of untouched and unblemished countryside, The Dales welcome thousands of visitors every year. The river valleys that run through the Yorkshire Dales provide a peaceful beauty to an area that is rarely matched anywhere else in the UK.

As if one National Park is not enough, Yorkshire is also blessed with the North York Moors. With its heather clad moorland stretching as far as the eye can see, this rugged vast expanse of space offers a real sense of solitude and a superb playground for those with a passion for outdoor pursuits. Rich in flora and fauna, the North York Moors National Park is famed for its wild rugged coastline with pretty little fishing villages jutting out of the cliffs, traditional seaside resorts, white sandy beaches and some of the country’s finest fish and chips!

Wildlife is diverse in the county. The RSPB protected cliffs at Bempton are one of the best spots in all of England for sea birds with over 200,000 swarming around the shores. Furthermore, the various nature walks and trails provide ample opportunity to witness some of the rarer animals in the county such as red squirrels in the Widdale Red Squirrel Reserve or deer near the tranquil 16th century Rievaulx Abbey.

Historically Yorkshire is one of the most significant places in the whole of England. The walled city of York still retains many of its old age features and is an example of living history with charming cobbled streets, an elaborate cathedral and all round traditional feel. The area has played a major role in English history and visitors can view almighty re-enactments of famous battles at the Royal Armouries Museum or see for themselves the battlefields where some of the most important conflicts raged during the War of the Roses. The county has been the location of fierce battles since the Viking ages and its heritage can be seen in the various museums offering an insight into its past.

For city lovers, Leeds, Sheffield and Bradford provide an altogether different atmosphere to the restful Yorkshire Dales. Modern shopping complexes, an active nightlife scene and plenty of entertainment options day and night make them among the most visited cities in England. Families have a wealth of choice at their disposal. The sheer size of the county means that everyone can enjoy native wildlife in the roaming countryside, more exotic animals in the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, sandy beaches stretching for miles on the east coast and outdoor pursuits like rock climbing, caving, mountain biking, surfing, trekking and canoeing within its natural parks and striking coastline.

Yorkshire’s vast area means that it really does provide something for everyone. Like many English counties, it includes unblemished countryside and natural beauty but it combines this with active cities, an extensive coastline and centuries of history. With countless outdoor and indoor activities available, combined with its family friendly appeal, Yorkshire is a county that is definitely hard to miss.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

What are the most popular locations to visit in Yorkshire?

The North Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors attract visitors from far and wide but don’t overlook the beauty of East Yorkshire and the very pleasing surprises of West and South Yorkshire..

What is the best time of year to visit Yorkshire?

There is no wrong and right time. During the warmer months, Yorkshire’s stunning coast and national parks attract walkers and those seeking sea air and relaxation; whilst the pull of a cosy Yorkshire cottage with a roaring log fire or a day or two exploring the cities or York and Hull make winter equally as appealing. Yorkshire has something for every season.

Do you have any properties in Yorkshire by the sea?

Yes. We have properties in the pretty fishing port of Staithes, the bustling harbour town of Whitby and the small fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay. If you fancy something more traditional, visit Scarborough's sandy beaches with donkey rides and amusement arcades.
