Holidays in Yorkshire, northern England

The largest county in England, Yorkshire is divided into South Yorkshire, East Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire encompasses the national parks of The Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors. Both are great outdoor wildernesses of natural beauty.

The eastern coast has popular seaside resorts such as Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington with sandy beaches and family entertainment English style which can include donkey rides, Punch and Judy shows and fun fairs. Blackpool is the best known resort on the west coast with famous illuminations and tower.

See holiday cottages in Filey - a traditonal seaside resort on the east Yorkshire coast for families.

Well known cities popular with tourists are Chester, York and the former spa town of Harrogate.

Bronte Country is the name for part of the Pennines in West Yorkshire and East Lancashire where the hugely popular Bronte Family lived. The Bronte sisters, Charlotte, Anne and Emily wrote books in this part of northern England, inspired by love and the countryside around them. The family lived in a vicarage in Haworth which is now a museum and visitor centre for visiting Bronte fans. A stay in a holiday cottage in Bronte Country would be most convenient for exploring Yorkshire and the Dales.

South of the Yorkshire national parks are densely populated areas on both the west and the east which include enormous cities such as Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds.

In between them lies another national park - the Peak District National Park. The landscape is gentler in the Peak District, the climate less harsh. Sheep wander the hills, there are brooks, waterfalls, charming stone-built villages with pubs and tea shops, and plenty of visitor attractions including stately homes and gardens.
