Find cottages in YorkshireVisit Yorkshire

The county of Yorkshire has a lot to offer visitors with a varied landscape of dales, moors and coast, a rich historical heritage, fascinating cities, market towns and picturesque villages. Yorkshire has a very distinctive character and is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

Once you arrive in Yorkshire you'll see why it's called 'God's Own County'. Take for example the wild, beautiful expanse of the Yorkshire Dales, which actually consists of lots of different Dales each with their own unique character, covering in total some 554 square miles of heather moorland, rich pasture land, and characterful Dale's villages and of course dry stone walls. Much of this area is protected and forms the famous Dales National Park; the perfect place for walking and cycling amongst some of Britain's most stunning landscapes.

To the east is another National Park; The North York Moors National Park extends all the way to the Yorkshire coast. This is a place of wide open spaces and wind swept heather moorland, an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways as well as hidden valleys where you'll discover pretty villages. It's also home to the North Yorkshire Moors Steam railway which runs from Pickering to Whitby (and back) and is a great day out for both adults and children.

The Yorkshire coast has been attracting holidaymakers since Victorian times and is renowned for its pretty fishing villages and bustling coastal resorts such as Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington. Here you'll find family friendly clean sandy beaches and plenty of activities for visitors of all ages. The picturesque town of Whitby clusters around its fishing harbour where fishing boats and pleasure cruisers come and go. High above the town Whitby Abbey dominated the skyline and can be reached with a vigorous walk up some 199 steps.

To the south are the family resorts of Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington. Scarborough has two lovely horseshoe bays with golden sands and plenty to offer families and couples looking for a traditional seaside break. Filey and Bridlington also have lovely beaches and coastal promenades.

And there's plenty more to Yorkshire including the wonderfully historical city of York, internationally renowned for its medieval architecture that includes one of the finest buildings in Europe; York Minster. Then there's the Yorkshire Wolds; a quiet and peaceful place of undulating countryside and market towns. To the south of the region in West Yorkshire is Bronte Country and its dramatic brooding open moorlands and of course connections with the Bronte sisters.

Lendal Tower Ref: IWN

Step into a piece of medieval history. With panoramic views over the beautiful city of York and the River Ouse, this spectacular 700-year old Ancient Scheduled Monument offers a truly unique holiday experience. In a landmark setting on the eastern banks of the River Ouse, the 14th-century Lendal Tower originally formed part of the city’s defences and played a key role in the daily life of the medieval city - from here shipping tolls were collected and all river traffic was controlled. Following the Civil War in the 17th century, the tower became the city’s first waterworks with a horse-powered pump supplying the water via pipes made from hollowed out tree trunks. In 1785, as proprietor of York Waterworks, John Smeaton FRS (the father of civil engineering and designer of the famous Eddystone Lighthouses) added a powerful steam-driven beam engine into the tower to cope with the city’s growing demand for water, later it became the proud headquarters of the York Waterworks Company. Carefully renovated to retain its character, including ornate, original wood panelling and decorative ceiling plasterwork, the resulting accommodation is stunning. A spiral staircase leads from the ground floor living area to a mezzanine bedroom and on to the first and second floors, each with bedroom with dual-aspect river views. Climbing a little higher, visitors reach the large roof terrace and are rewarded with a breathtaking view of one of the world’s greatest cathedrals, the magnificent minster, historic Lendal and King’s Bridges, the River Ouse, and the bustling 21st-century city that flourishes in the shadow of its ancient walls. The Tower’s unrivalled central location is perfect for exploring a wealth of other historical buildings including The Treasurer’s House and The Merchant Adventurer’s Hall, visiting the National Railway Museum or the Jorvik Centre, and discovering the snickelways and alleyways that wind between York’s ancient cobbled streets. On your doorstep are numerous attractions to suit all ages, with river boat trips, ghost walks, art galleries and theatres, plus an abundance of quirky shops, restaurants and inns. Return to Lendal Tower and guests have the privilege of relaxing in the tranquil setting of their own private riverside garden. Shop and pub 30 yards.

This property is close to the 2014 Tour de France route, come and experience the spectacular scenery for yourself and follow in the trail of some true cycling legends.
