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 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..
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.
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.
