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.

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.

    Just what we needed!

    It was exactly what we needed - a few nights away as a family, with some lovely walks to go on, and interesting places to visit. Getting to have an open fire on the go in the evening was a great treat too!

    Made enjoyable..

    The Lodge was located in a perfect location from which to view the local wildlife - the stone pedestal 'bird table' was a bonus as we used it to attract down the nuthatch, which could then be viewed from close quarters from within the log fire heated living room! The dehumidifier was such a simple bit of kit to use that on our return we have since purchased one for our own property.

    Great location

    The location of the cottage and being able to share our holiday with our two dogs made our stay enjoyable. Would have liked wi-fi for our children.
