Whether you’re after a romantic weekend with the other half, or a few days of fun and frolics with the family, you can’t go wrong with a trip to Yorkshire.
UNDER THE STARS
Pack up the car and head to the coast to make the most of the longer days and warmer nights. Pay a visit to Humble Bee Farm in Flixton, near Scarborough and try a spot of glamping; the kids will love sleeping under the stars in a giant bell tent or wigwam before spending the day exploring the nearby coast and moors.
For a little bit of luxury in the stunning Yorkshire Wolds, check out Estate Escapes, in the pretty village of Hotham – think impeccably decorated holiday cottages surrounded by peaceful countryside. They’re just a short drive away from William’s Den – a brand new adventure attraction with indoor and outdoor play areas – so it’s the perfect place to bring the kids for a half term break.
Step back in time and see how the other half live at Rossington Hall, a spectacular stately home near Doncaster where you’ll be treated like royalty from start to finish. Or treat yourself to a luxurious self catering break for two at Smallshaw Farm Cottages on the edge of the Peak District.
Surrounded by open fields with uninterrupted views of the moors and its very own spa, it is the perfect place to escape the rat race and recharge your batteries. Nestled in 30,000 acres of stunning Yorkshire Dales countryside next to the beautiful Bolton Abbey, with two award-winning restaurants and a newly refurbished spa, The Devonshire Arms Hotel and Spa is the ideal place to spend a long weekend – and you can bring your four-legged friend along too! Recently named one of the top 20 most romantic hotels in the UK by The Sunday Times, Yorebridge House in the picturesque Dales village of Bainbridge never fails to impress. The five star boutique hotel and restaurant prides itself on impeccable service and stunning surroundings.
YOUR OWN PACE
For something a little different, hop on a canal boat with Shire Cruisers and discover a lesser seen part of Yorkshire - you’ll get to hire your own boat and explore the Pennine canals at your own pace.
If you’d prefer to stay on dry land, try glamping at Uppergate Farm in one of their Mongolian-style yurts. Don’t worry about packing a sleeping bag and camping stove – their beautiful yurts are filled with home comforts, like a king size bed and comfy sofas so you can relax and recharge before another fun-filled day of exploring the nearby countryside.
