Yorkshire and the North East

From the wild natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales in the west, the purple heather moorlands of the Yorkshire Moors in the east, the magnificent coastline (much of which we care for) and Northumberland National Park to the north a holiday with us will give you the chance to explore some or all of this fascinating area. As if that wasn’t enough, there are also historic towns and cities and stories after stories in the historic houses we care for.

Long ago, Northumbria was a land at the very edge of a great empire. And even today, the wind sweeping across the hills still seems to carry the distant sounds of Roman legions marching along Hadrian's Wall. From the wild and natural beauty of the Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park in the north, magnificent castles and coastline to the east and Hadrian's Wall Country to the west, the scenery is as unspoilt as it was in those far-off times: it will certainly appeal to those wanting to discover high and lonely places and untouched beaches. The National Trust owns a range of historic buildings in the area including Lindisfarne Castle, Wallington, Cragside and the shore- based Souter lighthouse. As if that wasn't enough, there are also historic towns and cities

    Exemplary cottage

    The standard of the cottage and its upkeep was exemplary. The caretakers do a wonderful job and should be commended. Even in such an old property it was warm and cosy with all mod cons (except we couldn't find the oven gloves!!)

    Beautiful cottage

    The location of the cottage within the grounds was stunning. Parking and access was very convenient. Any prior questions were answered quickly. The cottage itself was beautiful and loved the decor and furnishings.

    Beautiful place

    Park Cottage and Cragside are such beautiful places, the cottage is very comfortably arranged and it is was very restful. Our young son particularly enjoyed the new chess table in the lounge and we all enjoyed a game of National Trust Monopoly.

    Loved the quality of the cottage

    We loved the quality of the cottage and the after hours access to the gardens. We stayed over the Xmas period and the lights around the property were really lovely. Walking after hours with all the lights on was really lovely.
