From the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors to the seaside resorts scattered along its North Sea Coast, North Yorkshire can offer visitors a memorable holiday when choosing to stay in one of its many fine holiday cottages. The Dales' past industrial history is revealed in the 18th and 19th century textile mills and watermills, which have been restored. Find them among the little Dales towns, Grassington, Kettlewell and Reeth, tasting both famous local cheeses and ales along the way. Artists and potters are still creating their own local styles, and the many Farmers' Markets provide you with fresh local produce. In the summer, too, make sure you are there when the country folk congregate together to compete in displays in their local agricultural shows right across the area.
Only such a place as the City of York, with its overwhelmingly impressive 800-year old cathedral, its cobbled medieval streets with many pavement cafes, could draw you away from the natural beauty of the Dales. With a wealth of trendy independent shops, galleries and a regular programme of festivals and events, it would be easy to holiday for an entire week in this historic city.
That being said, North Yorkshire also offers visitors more than 100 miles of shoreline, where you will find fossils on the Dunsdown Coast, seaside fun and surfing at Scarborough, fish in the sea for your supper at Filey, or partake of the best fish and chips ever at Whitby. This is where you will also capture the ambience of the earlier 18th and 19th centuries of Captain Cook, Count Dracula and Queen Victoria's favourite jet jewellery. Take the North Yorkshire Moors Railway to Goatherd Station, a film-location in the Harry Potter films in the heart of the beautiful Yorkshire Moors. If the usual outdoor activies of walking and cycling lose their appeal, try your hand at Husky Trekking at the Pesky Husky Trekking Centre in Staintondale or pay a visit to Hairy Bob's Cave beneath Scarborough Castle which is, allegedly, the most popular man-made cave in the UK.
After Scarbouurgh Castle, add Pickering Castle to your North Yorkshire bucket list, located on the edge of the North York Moors, it's also the location for the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway that runs from Pickering to Whitby through the heart of TVs 'Heartbeat Country.
The pictureseque riverside town of Knaresborough offers much for the visitor including Mother Shipton's Cave, a tourist attraction since 1630, the one time home of an old prophetess and soothsayer. Then head back into the town and sample the fare in one of its many fine tea rooms. For thos ewith a seriously sweet tooth, follow in the footsteps of many a visiting celebrity and pay a visit to Nidderdale will take you to The Oldest Sweet Shop in England!
What more do you need to keep the whole family happy for days on end in this very attractive county? Whether booking a holiday cottage for a week or a weekend break, you'll find it easay to fill your days sight-seeing, bathing, exploring in the great outdoors or enjoying historic towns and cities or spending days on the beach.
