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 wasnâ€™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.
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.
