Yorkshire Holiday Cottages

A Yorkshire holiday cottage offers the opportunity to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, relax in quaint villages, shop in delightful market towns and feel the buzz of fascinating cities.

Discover stunning scenery from the Yorkshire Dales to the North York Moors National Parks that between them offer rolling countryside, vast moorland and coastal splendour. There is plenty of history and culture to absorb too, from Norman castles, medieval abbeys and the walled city of York, to the beautiful spa town of Harrogate with its Turkish Baths.

We know that having somewhere cosy and luxurious to return to after your days out is a necessity. So, our luxury cottages in Yorkshire are quality homes, many with indulgent extras such as hot tubs and log fires.

Discover our selection, whether you are looking for a dog-friendly cottage, somewhere for the family to relax or a romantic hideaway for two.
