Holiday Cottages In Yorkshire To Rent - Save up to 60%

Why choose a holiday cottage in Yorkshire?

Home to some of Britain’s most incredible views, amazing architecture, and, of course, the curry capital of UK; we don’t have to try hard to make Yorkshire sound like the perfect place to book your next cottage holiday. We just have to state the facts.

The largest county in England

At 12,000 kilometres square, Yorkshire somehow manages to be the largest county in England but also overflow with cultural hotspots, picture-perfect properties, and a coast that can take your breath away.

The most picturesque place around

With the Lake District looming right next door, you’d think Yorkshire would be overshadowed by its notoriously beautiful neighbour. But nothing could be further from the truth. Home to three national parks, 11 national nature reserves, and some simply astounding wildlife, the exquisite North East county is a strong contender for the most picturesque place in England.

The birds of Bempton cliffs

First on Yorkshire’s ‘must-visit’ list is Bempton Cliffs, home to the UK’s largest seabird colony and one of the top wildlife spectacles in England. Half a million seabirds, swooping, soaring and squawking across the skyline, dominating the coast in a display guaranteed to leave you going ‘wow…’.

Three areas of outstanding natural beauty

Yorkshire also boasts a whopping three areas of outstanding natural beauty. The first, the Howardian Hills, is nestled between the North York Moors and the Vale of York. A rolling patchwork of soft green hills, luxury pastures and wild woodland; despite its internationally renowned beauty, it remains a secluded, almost secret spot.

Next, further from the coast, is Nidderdale, the most popular location in the Yorkshire Dales. A land of heather drenched moors, quaint, quiet villages and fantastic rock formations, sliced apart by the wandering River Nidd.

Thirdly and finally, is the Forest of Bowland, which North Yorkshire shares with the tip of Lancashire. A spot stolen from the front of a picture postcard, the unspoilt woodland houses magnificent moors, blanket bogs, and a ravishing array of rare birds.

Where should I book my Yorkshire cottage holiday?

With so many beautiful places to visit, from fishing villages, to market towns, to maybe the best coast in England, it can be hard to know where to start with your Yorkshire holiday. Well, as usual, Snaptrip is here to help. Not only will we search high and low to find you the most beautiful holiday homes North East England has to offer, we’ll also make sure you book one in exactly the right region for you..

North Yorkshire is made for romance

Gorgeous gothic architecture and an almost magical vibe, make the properties of North Yorkshire perfect for romance. Couples can wander cobbled streets in the city of York, or find gourmet cafes tucked inside medieval buildings in Harrogate.

Not to mention, North Yorkshire also hides the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, the perfect places for lovers to walk hand in hand, away from the hustle, bustle, and prying eyes of the city.

East Yorkshire is nature at its best

If you’re looking to appreciate the majesty of nature, head east, to a land of undulating hills, magnificent moors, and the holiday cottages of the Yorkshire Wolds. Where swirling grassland is dissected by historic canals, and serene farms are spattered with Bronze Age ruins.

At its edge, East Riding climaxes with the staggering East Yorkshire coast. Popular fishing villages, dramatic cliffs, stretches of bright white sand and the best fish and chips in England make it maybe the most popular location in Yorkshire.

South Yorkshire is the entertainment hub

The south is a 21st-century playground, ready to turn your holidays into a whirlwind of music, food and top-shelf entertainment. In South Yorkshire, you’ll find quaint holiday cottages, alongside some of the UK’s most popular shopping spots, family attractions, fabulous eateries, and nighttime attractions.

For an unbeatable night on the town, head to the stupendous city of Sheffield. For family-friendly fun, hit Doncaster, or base yourself in the beautiful Peak District, where you’ll be surrounded by Yorkshire’s best walking routes, while still driving distance from the coast.

West Yorkshire is steeped in culture

For culture vultures, looking to soak up the finer things a city has to offer, the luxury properties of West Yorkshire are the place to be. In Leeds, leading fashion brands to brush shoulders with acclaimed art galleries, and the Grand Theatre sits alongside the opulent Opera House.

Down the road, Bradford stands as the world’s first UNESCO city of the film (and the curry capital of Britain), while Wakefield holds tight to one of the most gorgeous cathedrals in the country.

Types of holidays to have in Yorkshire

When we say ‘a holiday cottage in Yorkshire’, there are loads of different we could be referring to. From low budget to luxury, laid-back to exhilarating; from north to east, south to west, and coast to coast, this popular location has it all.

Whatever you’re hoping for from your holidays, the properties of Yorkshire can provide. Don’t want to be away from your four-legged friend? Book a delightful dog friendly holiday. Wanting your Yorkshire breaks to heat things up? Take a look at the best cottages with hot tubs, or leave city life far behind you, with a secluded log cabin holiday.

If you’re looking to get some great snaps from your breaks, check out properties in picturesque fishing villages, or in one of Yorkshire’s many market towns. For those wanting to feel the sea breeze running through their hair, check out the best coastal cottages, or holiday cottages by the beach. If you’re hoping for an extra-large slice of luxury, why not book a big cottage, a beautiful back garden, or perhaps one of the properties with a pool.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Yorkshire To Rent.

Christine - verified booking

"On arrival we had to ring up to ask where the back door key was, no information about the property, there was a folder which was hidden under the tv not on the table where you would expect. As you walked in there was a terrible chemical smell and lots of ant killer everwhere. The main bathroom toilet had not been cleaned and was covered in excrement. There were tiny little flies all over the kitchen which we quickly became covered in and had to spend the first part of our holiday killing. Also there were dead flies in the bath. The upstairs shower door hardly opens as it catches on the ceiling within a couple of feet. Also the water is dangerously hot and could easily burn a child, the setting needs to be altered, this made using the shower difficult due to the lack of space and the burning hot water. On the plus side, the kitchen is large and well equipped (although I couldn't find any egg cups). The garden is a great size and the beds were comfortable. All in all it could be very good with a little more effort on cleanliness and sorting out the above difficulties. The location is pretty remote you have to go a long way to get anywhere with any shops etc."

"The cottage was spotless, beautifully decorated, 2 large doubles with compact ensuitesKitchen small but functional and on site owners very friendly. They provided milk and eggs from next doors hensYou do need a car as it’s a distance to shops etc, but as a result it’s a very peaceful locationThe house is surrounded by fields, containing hares 😀 and backs onto a small farm. There is an enclosed area to exercise dogs, but it’s not secure A few downsides for me:There was no WiFi, this was a nuisance as we’d relied on it to look at places to go, opening times etc. Think this is pretty much a must have these daysParking- the spaces labelled ‘Guest Parking’ were mostly occupied by 2-3 of the owners cars, which mean our 2 cars had to be parked in the courtyard area, overlooking the windows and in the outside dining area. It then required some manoeuvring to get out. Suggest they need to extend the parking area Dogs, they were happy for us to bring a dog, but they do have 2 quite large, exuberant dogswhich meant a great deal of barking as we came and went. This might be intimidating to some people, especially with children"

"The information in the house could of been more helpful. When the heating didn’t work, the only thing we could do was ring the housekeeper. We had no control of when the heating came on or off. We had no bins outside the house and there was no details where they were or about recycling. I had to walk a round to find any. I did ask the management team leader, who said where to put the rubbish. One of the days when it was the Our turn to go in the pool. The whole time we had at least 7 cleaners/ maintance people walking past us, the outside door open, in the way when you wanted to go into the changing rooms. Carrying large bags past us all the time, which made the time not as much fun more like being watched. The stone floor in the kitchen could of done with a large mat to take off wet or muddy shoes instead of a the usual door mat, especially as the house was for 9 of us. It would help to keep things clean. The housekeeper from the management team was helpful in replacing the batteries in the house torch. My husband repaired the overflow pipe that wasn’t attached to the kitchen sink."

Mrs H - verified booking

"The Cottage was lovely, spacious and equipped, with plenty nature on the door step and an art studio opposite! The hosts were very helpful on arrival! The upstairs balcony was a nice feature although we couldn't use the furniture, due to pigeon droppings on the furniture, excess feathers on the balcony and an over grown hedge to the side of the house, where the pigeons slept. The garden was very handy for our grandchildren to play, with a lovely enclosed duck pond and chicken pen. There was a barbeque in the garden for use , but again due to pigeon droppings it wasn't used. Overall the cleanliness could of been given a bit more consideration and attention to detail for guests arriving, as most of the dishes had a film of grease on them even before use. The owner did explain 2 days previously she had just returned from Cyprus, so in fairness I wasn't sure if it was her responsibility or somebody elses on this occassion. We would book again."

ALLISTER - verified booking

"The Granary was a lovely spacious house, ideal for our family reunion celebration. We were there Friday to Friday; for the first weekend there was another group in one of the other houses, but for the rest of the time, Monday to Friday, we had the whole complex to ourselves. This meant we had freedom to use the pool at any time - much appreciated because it must have been one of the hottest weeks of the summer! There were a couple of minor niggles: a brush was provided to keep the kitchen floor swept clean, but no dustpan or hand shovel, so it was a challenge to dispose of the sweepings. Also there was a beehive/nest under the eaves by one of the bedroom windows which meant that the window had to be kept closed to avoid bees coming in - not ideal in hot weather. These didn't spoil our enjoyment of the place, but a defects report book in the property could help to let the cleaning company know what to correct for the next guests."
