Our selection of places to stay in Yorkshire are mostly in the county of North Yorkshire.
Before Yorkshire was divided into three counties it was the largest in England, embracing industrial cities in the south and, in the north, some of the most glorious countryside in the British Isles: the Yorkshire Dales. These are essentially Pennine valleys, generally lying east-west. A typical Yorkshire Dale has a flat valley floor with a rushing river, and a quaint village with lush green pasture. Rising either side are limestone hillsides, with rugged rocky outcrops on the tops.
Places to stay here tend to be converted inns and farmhouses, and the quality is variable. As elsewhere, our selection in Yorkshire offers an exceptional variety of guesthouses, inns, restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm that we value.
