Yorkshire & North East England
Visitors walking to Lindisfarne Castle, Northumberland © Arnhel de Serra

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.

York

York is a city alive with interest for the visitor, it has retained so much of its medieval structure that strolling around the centre is like walking around a living museum. There is the Shambles, Jorvik Viking Centre, York Castle Museum and the Minster to name just a few of the many attractions to tempt the visitor. Nestled behind the Minster, is the National Trust?s own Treasurer?s House built over a Roman road; the interior here is a constant surprise to visitors along with its famous ghost stories! The apartments are above the National Trust shop and tea-rooms in the very centre of York, close to all the main sites and a host of good restaurants and pubs.

  • Debbie and Gina
    The accommodation is excellent

    The accommodation is excellent, ideal for a family or group of friends. Not much noise at all - particularly enjoyed the ghost tours which stopped outside property. Everything is in within walking distance. There are ample eateries in the area providing a range of food to meet most tastes and finances. Thoroughly recommend this accommodation, we will be back again as soon as possible.
