Stay in North Yorkshire

Sweeping moors, picturesque villages and rich heritage

North Yorkshire has one of the finest stretches of coastline in Britain from golden beaches to rocky coves and towering cliffs. The diversity of the landscape is very evident.

The Yorkshire Dales National Park has a network of drystone walls which mark the boundaries of agriculture with a history reaching back for centuries. The sweeping heather moors, picturesque traditional villages and rich heritage ensure there is something for everyone to enjoy all year round. 

Scarborough beach
Walking, cycling or driving you will encounter many beautiful and fascinating features, rock formations which go back to the Ice Age, ancient crafts, historic houses and Abbeys abound.

The Three Peaks walk near Settle is very popular - 26 miles over Pen-y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside. For the less adventurous walkers - Ingleton Waterfalls walk or visit a cave - White Scar and Ingleborough caves near Ingleton or Stump Cross Caverns near Pateley Bridge.

See interesting limestone features and scenery - Malham Cove and Gordale Scar in the Yorkshire Dales.  The North York Moors have stunning scenery, pretty villages, wonderful walks and in late summer undulating swathes of purple heather.
