Self Catering Cottages in The Yorkshire Dales

Where to Stay in The Yorkshire Dales

The vast Yorkshire Dales provide some of the prettiest, unspoilt scenery to be found in the UK. Whether you are looking for holiday cottages near major Dales attractions or want to get off the beaten track, our independent owners are here to share the savings of booking direct and provide a warm Yorkshire welcome.

The Yorkshire Dales is home to Wensleydale – a beautifully scenic area, with vast moorland, dotted with pretty waterfalls. Making a trip to see the Aysgarth Falls, in particular, will not disappoint. Those more interested in man-made creations should visit the fascinating ruins of Middleham Castle, built in 1190.

For those seeking a quaint, picturesque market town, staying in Skipton will do the trick. Known as the ‘gateway to the Yorkshire Dales’, this pretty little town offers some great eateries, alongside a market 4 days a week and many other little boutiques. A trip to the ancient Skipton Castle is also a great way to learn more about the town's history and heritage.

Moving closer to Cumbria is the quaint farming community of Dentdale. It is an area steeped in history, with remnants from the Vikings, who settled there in the 10th Century. Though home to only one village, there is plenty to see and do in this scenic spot. The Dent Brewery is well worth a visit for the guided tours and award-winning ales.

Depending on where you stay in the national park, cottages in the Yorkshire Dales can provide the perfect base for exploring the many attractions of this magnificent county.

The Yorkshire Dales Travel Guide

Before booking your holiday cottage in The Yorkshire Dales, you can find all the information you need for your trip here. For more tips, check out our complete Yorkshire Dales guide.

When to Visit The Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales offers a huge landscape, meaning there is something for everyone here. It displays untouched countryside and natural beauty and combines this with quaint towns and villages, alongside centuries of history.

Summers in the Dales often present mild to warm weather with the occasional hotter day. The days are longer providing visitors with more time to explore the great outdoors. Generally, the climate is overcast and humid with average temperatures of around 20°C. If you aim to visit the Yorkshire Dales when the weather is at its best, July or August typically have warmer days and more sunshine.

The Yorkshire Dales in spring offers a mix of sunny days and cooler, wet weather. This is a great time to visit for those who plan on getting active as the milder temperatures create the perfect environment for hiking, biking or other activities. For those looking to challenge themselves, a trip to Ingleton to attempt the climb up Mount Ingleborough means spring is the perfect time to visit. Between March and May, the temperatures average around 8°C to 15°C, with the occasional rain shower.

Many describe the climate in the Yorkshire Dales in winter as ‘moody’ with the changing weather consisting of rain, snow and wild, windy days. Temperatures average around highs of 9°C, making it a much cooler time to visit. With a chance of snow, this is a great time to see places like the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors dusted in white. It is also an excellent time to visit quaint villages such as Settle, Hawes and Leyburn as they display cosy Christmas markets.

What to Do in the Yorkshire Dales

Malham, in particular, is a must on the to-do list for visitors to the area. Known for its limestone cliffs, miles of ancient stone walls and lush green fields, it is a superb backdrop for fascinating walks. The area is so unique that it has been deemed a 'Site of Special Scientific Interest’.

The highly protected area is home to plenty of wildlife for those on the lookout. Visitors to Malham should also be sure to make their way to Malham Cove – an intriguing natural limestone formation that has been created over millions of years.

Visit Bronte Country, the North York Moors for a day by the sea or swap the coast for the Lakes with a trip to Windermere. If you prefer to be out in the fresh air exploring by bike, take part in the Yorkshire Dales Cycleway, the Coast to Coast challenge or follow the route of the Tour de Yorkshire.
