North York Moors Cottage Holidays

The North York Moors: Yorkshire's Wild and Wonderful Escape

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.

The best time to view the purple heather on The Moors is in late summer and autumn, when it is in full bloom covering the moors with a spectacular carpet of rich colour. Get out of the car and enjoy the views while riding at a more sedate and relaxing pace on the North York Moors Railway from Pickering to Grosmont. Enjoy a 'Beck Hole Butty’ at one of Britain's smallest pubs, the Birch Hall, in the pretty little moorland hamlet of Beck Hole. Cyclists and walkers can share the Cinder Trail, a 21-mile trail that follows the old railway line from Whitby to Scarborough and offering some spectacular sea views. The North York Moors offer a stunning canvas all year round with its constantly changing scenery and a wonderful variety of wooded valleys and grassy hills, it is definitely a fascinating place to visit at any time of year. A great way of really experiencing the Moors is by staying in one of its holiday cottages and really living the moorland life. Book a holiday cottage in Goathland, the location for the TV series of Heartbeat and the tallest waterfall on the North York Moors. If you are looking to combine a coastal holiday with moorland exploration, then seek out a fully-restored quaint fisherman’s cottage, fully equipped to offer superb self-catering accommodation in the cliff-hugging fishing villages of Staithes and Robin Hood's Bay.
