Self-catering country cottages in Yorkshire
There is so much to see and do in Yorkshire on a self catering cottage holiday. This wonderful northern expanse of heath, moorland, woodland and scenic hills and valleys welcomes holidaymakers all year round. Yorkshire is the English county with everything; the east coast has fine beaches and seaside resorts for families and thrill seekers, the rest is incredibly picturesque and dotted with towns and villages of character. The old walled city part of York plays host to tourists from around the world every day of the year.
There is something unique and special about Yorkshire, especially for holidaymakers from other regions. It could be the solid looking stone-built houses that have withstood centuries of weathering, the use of limestone in the walls that enclose gardens and crisscross the fields.

What you will find inside a Yorkshire holiday home
Each of our holiday homes in Yorkshire, whether it be a rugged stone cottage, a farmhouse, a croft, bothy or mansion, will offer a cosy and comfortable place to stay. The style of décor will be individual to each property, but they will be welcoming and attractive.
When renting a self-catering property, the owner is often there to welcome you with the keys and a basket of local produce is sometimes left as a gift although it could be just a bottle of wine or Yorkshire cakes. You will find a kitchen that is equipped with all cooking essentials and sometimes more. Not everyone would like to bake during a holiday but sometimes they might. All crockery, cooking utensils and glassware are provided to ensure that guests can cook and dine as they would at home.
Each room will be functional and of a high standard. Beds are made up and usually have duvets with perhaps a spare blanket or throw for colder evenings in the north. You may wish to find accommodation in Yorkshire with a particular type of bed; there are cottages and lodges that have king-size, superking beds or bunk beds for children.
The factors to look out for when renting holiday accommodation in Yorkshire are:
- Heating that guests are able to adjust – it’s colder in northern England. A holiday cottage with a woodburner or open fire could add appreciable warmth.
- Off-road parking spaces because parking is limited in popular Yorkshire towns and villages such as Malham
