It is no coincidence that Yorkshire is known as ‘God’s own county’. If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax in some of England’s most beautiful surroundings then a holiday rental in Yorkshire will hit the spot! The three National Parks house and protect over a thousand miles of countryside – indeed no other region in the country has more square miles of National Park land. If you are an energetic hiker you may even want to tackle the Cleveland Way National Trail which goes for 110 miles and is certainly not short of picnic spots and historic landmarks! Whether your vehicle of choice is a bicycle, a horse or simply on foot you will discover beauty and romance at every turn in the spectacular ruins and rolling Moors. Yorkshire’s holiday rentals also put you at a stone’s throw from dozens of historic landmarks, like Whitby, Aldborough. The countryside is dotted liberally with ancient abbeys, tumbledown castles and grand country homes which are still architecturally stunning and historically powerful even all these centuries later.
If the tranquillity of the countryside is not what you are looking for in your holiday rental then fear not, Yorkshire has plenty more to offer! Leeds is highly acclaimed for its shopping, restaurants and bars but it is also a centre of excellence for its museums and galleries. Holiday rentals in and around Leeds allow you to have a base in the buzzing centre of the city whilst also giving you the opportunity to explore the rest of the county from there. York is also a city which must be seen. It has extensive Roman and medieval history but like Leeds is also equipped with everything a modern traveller could desire. Holiday rentals are available everywhere from the picturesque countryside and traditional seaside ports to the lively cities and charming market towns. Wherever you choose the locals, famous for their warm-hearted nature, will welcome you with open arms.
