Planning a luxury cottage break in or near the Yorkshire Dales? The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a lovely expanse of semi-wild countryside north of the spa town of Harrogate, conveniently situated to provide an outdoor playground for the populations of northern English cities.
Visit on a luxury break during late summer to see the heather create a purple haze over the hillsides or spring for lambs frolicking in the fields. Small farms are scattered throughout the Dales, fields neatly divided by enduring stone walls. Limestone is a prominent feature of the Yorkshire Dales, in limestone pavements and rocks weathered into interesting shapes.
Visit the villages of the Dales, stone-built and solid. Some like Grassington still have cobbled streets and an air of endurance.
Paths and trails criss-cross the Dales taking the walker from one magnificent view to another. The area is excellent for walkers. Although there is a wealth of holiday accommodation in this popular area, why not enjoy a little comfort and even luxury? The following holiday cottages in the Yorkshire Dales are all of a luxurious standard. Treat yourself. Click on photos for more information about each luxurious property.
