Vacation Rentals in the Stunning Yorkshire Dales
With rolling hills, underground caves, rivers with giant rocks and waterfalls, the United Kingdom’s infamous Yorkshire Dales are a natural playground for people of all ages – adults and children alike. For nature-lovers, particularly families, it’s the perfect place to go to enjoy safe and beautiful hikes and activities. With the Botanical Gardens, the magnificent Aysgarth Falls, the old Embsay railway in Skipton, and an aerial adventure park, a Yorkshire Dales vacation rental is the perfect place for a relaxing yet exciting vacation.
Getting to and around the Yorkshire Dales
Located in the north of England, the Yorkshire Dales National Park is easy to get to and to navigate as there are trains and busses running throughout it, so it’s very easy to make your way to your Yorkshire Dales vacation home. In and around the Yorkshire Dales there are many large cities, all of which are well connected for national and international air travel, as well as rail and bus routes. To the south are the cities of York, Harrogate, and Bradford; to the west are Lancaster, Preston, and to the north-east lie Darlington and Middlesbrough.
Cuisine and culture
If you want to eat outside of your Yorkshire Dales vacation rental, head to any local pub, where you're bound to find plenty of traditional hearty Yorkshire food – like Yorkshire puddings, by far the most well known element of Yorkshire cuisine, and usually served along with a Sunday roast.
One of the most famous cultural sights is Haworth, where, if you're a fan of the Brontë sisters, you can visit the place where they lived for most of their lives. Their house is open to visitors, as well as the church that holds the family vault. You can see how the landscape shaped their writings, and you can walk up to Top Withens, the supposed setting of Wuthering Heights. Afterwards, you can enjoy a cosy meal in one of the many country-style cafés and restaurants in Haworth.
Weather and climate
There’s a saying that in the Yorkshire Dales, you can get all four seasons in one day! As gorgeous as it can be, the weather can be unpredictable so don’t forget your raincoat if you’re going out hiking. That said, this area has a climate that is suited to outdoor pursuits year-round, and more often than not you’ll get lovely warm sunshine, especially in the summer months.
Sights and activities
If you’re staying in a Yorkshire Dales vacation rental, there’s always plenty to do, no matter the season or the weather. Here are just a few of the region’s incredible sights:
The Botanical Gardens: Near Harrogate, these family
and wheelchair-friendly gardens are as huge as they are spectacular, with a whole mixture of landscapes, from woodlands to flower gardens, and frequent special events, such as open-air theater and quiz trails. Inside the gardens, you can also visit the tearoom for some classic tea and scones.
Aysgarth Falls: Located in Wensleydale on the River Ure, the Aysgarth Falls are a series of stunning waterfalls. A short walk through the woods from the car park and visitors center brings you to the Upper Fall, the largest and most spectacular. The river drops down over huge slabs of rock in two more falls further downstream.
The Embsay railway in Skipton: From the original 1888 station in Skipton, you can ride the original old railway all the way to Bolton Abbey, watching the countryside pass by the window. This can be a fun day trip for families or individual travelers, allowing you to appreciate the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
White Scar Cave: A huge underground limestone cave in Ingleton, the guided tour covers one mile and takes about 80 minutes. Surrounded by echoing caverns and twisted rock formations, it’s like being in a different world.
Activities with children
Aerial adventure park: For a more adventurous activity, take the kids from your Yorkshire Dales vacation home out to climb in the forest canopy with rope bridges, ziplines and other obstacles to overcome!
The forbidden corner: A magical garden full of fairy-tale statues, labyrinths, underground chambers and hidden doors. While it’s a hit for children, even adults will enjoy crawling through the tunnels and exploring the secret chambers!
Self-catering in your vacation home
In your Yorkshire Dales vacation rental, you can easily self-cater, as supermarkets are never far away. If you have a car, it is very easy to shop, and busses connect all but the most rural of locations. Book your Yorkshire Dales vacation home for a fun and exciting nature-oriented vacation.
