Yorkshire and the North East

From the wild natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales in the west, to the purple heather moorlands of the Yorkshire Moors in the east, a stay in one of our cottages will give you the chance to explore the rugged landscape and green hills of Yorkshire and the North East. As if that wasn’t enough, there are also historic towns and cities, a spectacular coastline, (much of which we look after) and stories after stories in the historic houses we care for.

The North York Moors National Park is famous for its vast areas of heather moorland, interspersed by hidden valleys and bounded to the east by stunning coastline.

    Made special by:

    The balance you achieved between preserving the look and feel of the 18th century old building but ensuring it was comfortable in the 21st! That and its incredible location on the moors and the sight of lambs being born all around! We have holidayed at many cottages and farms but never NT ones. None were as good as this, in terms of cleanliness, size, comfort, pleasure to be in and around and sadness at leaving! We will definitely book an NT holiday again. Terrific value.

    Pleasant cottage

    Very warm welcome, and a very pleasant cottage. Excellent to stay in a remote location like Lower Lidmoor!

    Lovely places to walk

    Peaceful, beautiful location; lovely places to walk; wildlife to see; clear night skies. Very lovely cottage in a beautiful location. The access road was in a poor state and risked damage to our car.
