For days out go east to the Yorkshire coast or north into the North York Moors, which is within comfortable reach on main roads. Afterwards head back to your holiday cottage to whip up a delicious meal - whether you're cosying up for a romantic night in or feeding the family, you'll enjoy your stay here.
