Beautiful luxury accommodation in the Dales

We all have different expectations when it comes to the standard of holiday accommodation and it is so much better to be delighted with a Yorkshire cottage on arrival than to face disappointment. Yorkshire is such a fantastic county to visit for a holiday with stunning panoramas at every turn that it would be such a pity of anything such as the acommodation could mar your holiday in any way.

It is so much nicer to return to comfortable attractive accommodation after a day out on the fells than something mediocre. Treat yourself to something special, it may cost that bit more but offers so much extra pleasure.

The stone-built houses in Yorkshire

Yorkshire is known for stone-built farmhouses and cottages with well insulated thick walls that keep the warmth inside during the winter and the cold out in the winter.

The very nature of Yorkshire is intertwined with rock and stone. It appears in the dry stone walls, in the cairns that one sees out walking. It is the stone in its various forms that gives the Yorkshire Dales their character. A view of typical stone cottages in Wensleydale is show below:

Houses in Yorkshire tend to be well spaced out. They may occur closer together in the villages and even more so in towns but find a cottage to rent in the countryside and it is likely to be detached and private, usually with its own fully enclosed garden.

Where to select a holiday cottage depends on personal requirements. Some people booking self-catering accommodation feel the need to be within walking distance of a pub because that it where they want to be in the evenings, either for a meal or a sociable evening. Another group may prefer to book a secluded, even isolated cottage to get away from people and noise. Fortunately, both situations are possible in the Yorkshire Dales.

The Yorkshire Dales wealthy farming area

Property prices in the Yorkshire Dales national park are higher than many other areas in the north of England. It is generally speaking a wealthy area with numerous land owners.  Farmers have managed to acquire the funds to restore former farm properties and turn them into holiday lettings.  Generally, the standard of accommodation of rural properties is high.
