North York Moors Cottage Holidays

The North Yorkshire Moors National Park can be remote and desolate, but offers visitors a wild and wonderful escape from the bustle of city life. Stay for a weekend in winter in a stoutly built and snug Yorkshire holiday cottage or, in summer, a converted East Coast fisherman's cottage in picturesque Staithes or Saltburn-by-the-Sea. The North York Moors, are full of green fields grazed by hardy sheep and cattle and patchworked with dry stone walls. The moors cover 44,000 acres of bleak but beguiling moorland, the largest expanse of heather moorland in England and Wales. But there's more to tempt visitors wishing to enjoy the natural beauty of this rugged Yorkshire landscape:  Lush green river valleys, tall cliffs and quaint fishing villages from Saltburn in the north to Scalby near Scarborough in the south, and from the hills at Cleveland to the coast at Whitby.
