There is simply so much to do and see across North Yorkshire that picking a “bucket list” of our favourite holiday locations is pretty hard. But we’ve had a go, so here is our top-ten “best of the best” if you're holidaying in our NorthYorkshire cottages this year; Spyglass 1708 or Rosella Cottage.


Visit to
Castle Howard

A visit to magnificent Castle Howard is only a short drive from Rosedale ir Whitby.


Visit to
Rievaulx Abbey

The most remarkable place in the whole of Yorkshire.


Fish & Chips
