Yorkshire & North East England

In England's spectacular North East, Yorkshire and Northumberland are both counties that offer something for everyone. Yorkshire is world renowned for the beauty of its countryside and its scenery, reaching from the Dales in the west to the Moors in the east. There are also historic towns and cities, a spectacular coastline, much of which is in the care of the Trust, and some of the most magnificent historic houses in the country. The cathedral city of York, where the Trust has two holiday apartments, has a huge variety on offer to visitors - from magnificent York Minster to the medieval Shambles, an area steeped in history and now rich in gift and antique shops alongside fashionable boutiques. Northumberland too abounds in magnificent scenery with wide open stretches of moorland and a long and dramatic coastline. Steeped in history, protecting the border with Scotland since the days when Hadrian's army built the famous Wall, the county also has a wonderful collection of historic houses and castles including Cragside, Wallington and Lindisfarne, all of which are in the care of the Trust. The Trust now has cottages close to Hadrian's Wall itself and in many other spectacular locations including Alnwick and Fountains Abbey, a World Heritage Site.

Yorkshire is, not surprisingly, England's most popular holiday destination, as this vast county offers something for everyone. The beautiful countryside of the Dales and Moors, a dramatic and unspoilt coastline, a wealth of historic towns and cities, spectacular ancient ruins, and some of the most magnificent houses in the country. The National Trust owns over 24,000 acres of coast and countryside across the county as well as some splendid historic properties. These include Beningbrough Hall, East Riddlesden Hall, Nunnington Hall and the spectacular Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal.

    We had all we needed and more!

    Beautifully presented, clean and lovely welcome, with fresh flowers in many of the rooms, a welcome tray and greeting card. We had all we needed and more! The recycling bin was a little small. Would have been useful to have an OS map. The location, isolation and cosiness of the cottage... made this place special.

    Beautiful views out the back of the cottage

    I love NT holiday cottages, please keep doing what you are doing! Remote location, beautiful views out of the back of the cottage and a lovely cosy environment to spent time in. Another magnificent cottage, beautifully presented by the caretaker and in immaculate condition.

    Darnbrook is a gem of a cottage

    Darnbrook is a gem of a cottage in a fantastic location. It was perfect for our new year's break. It is cosy, comfortable and in a truly beautiful part of the Dales. We loved it. The Dales are a very special place, and Darnbrook is perfectly placed to visit some of the most beautiful villages, and get out on the hills, without the bustle of being in Malham or one of the other busier villages. We loved the isolation, even though there is a farm and cottage close by, the cottage is set back from them and is wonderfully private with beautiful views from all windows.

    A delightfully warm and cosy cottage

    A delightfully warm and cosy cottage, gorgeous landscape and perfect setting for a few days escape from the horrors of West Yorkshire. The somewhat gruesome weather towards the end of the week made it feel all the more special inside A much earned rest for my family, but t’was not long enough!

    What a treat

    What a treat – first time we saw this cottage was when it was being renovated and then we thought it would be a super, cosy place to stay in – and so it is. Some great walks and lots of playing of games with the kids. Now we are all recharged again. Thanks, we had a fun time, we felt most welcome and the tea and biscuits was most appreciated.

    This was our first National Trust cottage

    This was our first National Trust cottage and it was a wonderful introduction. We didn't do much during our weekend but loved every minute of it - very relaxing
