What Arkendale offers for Cottage Breaks
Arkendale’s village church of St. Bartholomew, consecrated in 1837, dominates the skyline. Being just one mile from the A1, the village is convenient for days out and exploring some of the best of Yorkshire. Arkendale is conveniently located around mid way between the North York Moors National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Pennines are also conveniently close by, making this an excellent place for a walking or hiking holiday.
Knaresborough is a popular tourist destination and only about four miles away. A favourite activity here is to make a wish at the wishing well in Mother Shipton’s Cave. You will learn about the great soothsayer and see the objects turned to stone in the Petrifying Well. Stroll round the pretty market square whilst on a self-catering break and take a tour of medieval Knaresborough Castle, with its dungeon and Civil War costumes. For another great day out, the elegant spa town of Harrogate cannot be beaten. Take afternoon tea at the famous Betty’s tea rooms, shop for antiques and see the floral displays in Valley Gardens.
Book a Arkendale cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of East Yorkshire on holiday.
