A single arched stone bridge crosses a shallow, rock-filled river in the countryside. Let Your Journey to The Yorkshire Dales Start With a Perfect Holiday Cottage

Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in The Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales is an upland area of the Pennines, mainly in North Yorkshire. It is a remote and sparsely populated part of England, characterised by green pastures crisscrossed by drystone walls and grazed by sheep and cattle. The countryside is wild and unspoiled, with great swathes of heather-covered moorland and hay meadows. Find Yorkshire Dales holiday homes amidst deep river valleys hugging the sides of the rugged hills that rise from the Vale of York to the hilltops of the Pennine watershed. The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a paradise for outdoor pursuits, with countless footpaths to explore, many of which lead to high hilltops, tumbling waterfalls or limestone cliffs and caves.

The Lake District surrounds the area to its west, the North York Moors to its east, and the North Pennines to its north. Many picturesque villages, such as Grassington, Malham, Long Preston and Appletreewick, are idyllic bases for self-catering holidays in the Yorkshire Dales. Top places to visit during a stay in a Yorkshire Dales holiday home include Aysgarth Falls, a spectacular series of waterfalls carved out of the River Ure. The falls are particularly dramatic after heavy rainfall when thousands of gallons of water cascade over the limestone steps. Another natural wonder of the Yorkshire Dales, Malham Cove, is a massive natural amphitheatre made of towering limestone cliffs. Beautiful views can be enjoyed from the Cove, where little owls and peregrine falcons are often spotted, while the neighbouring village of Malham is a pretty place for a stroll and a pint. 

In the heart of the Dales, near the bustling market town of Skipton, Bolton Priory is an impressive ruined church on the banks of the River Wharfe. Nearby, the Forbidden Corner is a surreal garden of follies and a fun family day out from holiday cottages in the Yorkshire Dales.
