Yorkshire has been named one of the top global places to visit in Lonely Planet’s ‘Best in Travel 2014’. This stunning county is placed at number three in the guide’s ‘Top 10 Regions’ to visit next year, just behind destinations in India and Australia.
Lonely Planet highlight just some of Yorkshire’s many attractions, listing its “rugged moorland, heritage homes and cosy pubs” as key reasons for the county’s spot in the top three global destinations. And with the Tour De France hailed a success, 2015 has to be the year to rediscover this beautiful region.
So if you’re planning to visit this top global destination next year, you’re guaranteed to find your perfect holiday with National Trust Holiday Cottages.
Those in search of the “rugged moorland” will love High Lidmoor Farmhouse: a family-sized cottage with outstanding views over the north Yorkshire moors. Or for an equally dramatic location, take to the coast and stay at Low Peak, an eighteenth-century house, or Chapel Cottage - both perched high on the cliffs with sweeping views across Robin Hood’s Bay.
To experience staying in one of the region’s best “heritage homes”, look no further than Vyner and Proctor. These spacious apartments are situated in sixteenth-century Fountains Hall, part of the Fountains Abbey estate. This World Heritage Site, complete with the spectacular ruins of a twelfth-century abbey and a fine Georgian water garden, is also home to nine further cottages.
Finally, if you’d rather take a city break, we’ve two comfortable apartments in the heart of historic York. From Goodramgate and Minstergate, you’re a short stroll from the sky-scraping towers of thirteenth-century York Minster, one of Lonely Planet’s “sights to make you feel small”.
With so much on offer, we can certainly see why Yorkshire is a top global destination – so why not take a look through our cottages, and discover Yorkshire for yourself?
