The festival season starts early in Yorkshire and there’s bound to be something to tempt you to visit the coast! Why not join in the fun of the North York Moors National Park's Dark Skies Festival, and head to Whitby Museum for their next exhibition "Whitby and the Cosmos".
If you think the only white cliffs in the country are to be found at Dover, think again. Yorkshire boasts a coastline to rival any in the UK, and the vertiginous chalk cliffs of Flamborough Head , sadly not immortalised in song by Dame Vera Lynn, are nevertheless a wonder to behold. Add to this the numerous coves and bays tucked beneath these looming giants, the amazing colonies of gannets and puffins who make them their summer breeding grounds and the diverse sea-life enriching the waters below and you have a ‘must-see’ destination among many belonging to the Yorkshire Coast.
We could wax lyrical for ages about ‘God’s Own Country’ – and with good reason! Yorkshire has become one of the UK’s most popular destinations in recent years, as visitors realise just how much this huge county has to offer. From the wilds of the North York Moors to the coastline that inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula, museums of Victorian wonders, Viking settlers and mighty Minsters, Yorkshire has it all. Our selection of luxury cottages spread across the county gives you the chance to see the best that’s on offer, so here are a few of our favourite places to visit in Yorkshire, many of which are perhaps a little off the usual tourist trail.
