What to do on a cottage holiday in Yorkshire
Yorkshire is one of the biggest counties in the UK, so there’s plenty going on to keep you and your family busy. You’ll find lots of history, especially in the medieval town of York, where you can visit the magnificent Gothic cathedral of York Minster, built in around the 13th century, or perhaps take a walk through the winding narrow medieval streets that characterise the Shambles. The seaside town of Whitby has a different historic flavour, made famous by Bram Stoker as the landing point of Dracula, it still retains a Victorian-era character alongside amusement arcades, shopping centres and numerous modern tourist attractions.
