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 wasnâ€™t enough, there are also historic towns and cities and stories after stories in the historic houses we care for.
York is a city alive with interest for the visitor, it has retained so much of its medieval structure that strolling around the centre is like walking around a living museum. There is the Shambles, Jorvik Viking Centre, York Castle Museum and the Minster to name just a few of the many attractions to tempt the visitor. Nestled behind the Minster, is the National Trust?s own Treasurer?s House built over a Roman road; the interior here is a constant surprise to visitors along with its famous ghost stories! The apartments are above the National Trust shop and tea-rooms in the very centre of York, close to all the main sites and a host of good restaurants and pubs.
