Standing at the base of Fountains Fell in the remote, 3-dwelling hamlet of Darnbrook on a working sheep farm, the Cottage has fine views of the surrounding dales of Malham Moor, with a grassed area to the rear that catches the evening sun. Close to Malham Tarn and Malham Cove, both great places for a day's stroll, Darnbrook is also only a short drive to the market towns of Settle and Skipton. Ideally located for exploring the Yorkshire Dales, the picturesque villages of Malhamdale, Littondale and Wharfedale are within easy reach, all of which are also excellent areas for walking.

In England's spectacular North East, Yorkshire and Northumberland are both counties that offer something for everyone. Yorkshire is world renowned for the beauty of its countryside and its scenery, reaching from the Dales in the west to the Moors in the east. There are also historic towns and cities, a spectacular coastline, much of which is in the care of the Trust, and some of the most magnificent historic houses in the country. The cathedral city of York, where the Trust has two holiday apartments, has a huge variety on offer to visitors - from magnificent York Minster to the medieval Shambles, an area steeped in history and now rich in gift and antique shops alongside fashionable boutiques. Northumberland too abounds in magnificent scenery with wide open stretches of moorland and a long and dramatic coastline. Steeped in history, protecting the border with Scotland since the days when Hadrian's army built the famous Wall, the county also has a wonderful collection of historic houses and castles including Cragside, Wallington and Lindisfarne, all of which are in the care of the Trust. The Trust now has cottages close to Hadrian's Wall itself and in many other spectacular locations including Alnwick and Fountains Abbey, a World Heritage Site.
Yorkshire is, not surprisingly, England's most popular holiday destination, as this vast county offers something for everyone. The beautiful countryside of the Dales and Moors, a dramatic and unspoilt coastline, a wealth of historic towns and cities, spectacular ancient ruins, and some of the most magnificent houses in the country. The National Trust owns over 24,000 acres of coast and countryside across the county as well as some splendid historic properties. These include Beningbrough Hall, East Riddlesden Hall, Nunnington Hall and the spectacular Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal.
