Yorkshire Dales Holiday Cottages

Still referred to as ‘Herriott Country’ after the author James Herriott, a vet who lived and worked in these parts, the Yorkshire Dales offer a unique variety of wild, rugged landscapes from sweeping moorlands and fertile valleys, to dramatic limestone scars and peaks, each different and all equally beautiful. The region provides two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a National Park, plus a patchwork of quaint villages steeped in the history of the area; it’s not surprising that Yorkshire Dales holiday cottages are in demand all year round.
