Yorkshire is known worldwide for its astonishing natural beauty, making it an ideal place to escape the pressures and stresses of the modern world. Crabtree & Crabtree understands this and, after looking at customer feedback, has decided to add “God’s own Country” to its portfolio, which now comprises more than 300 handpicked holiday cottages.
As UK borrowing costs soar, it will not have escaped many eyes and ears that sterling is falling, meaning that things will be significantly more expensive for Brits wanting to travel abroad. Much like the previous two years when the pandemic forced Brits to holiday closer to home, many holidaymakers are again looking for options within British borders. There are few more beautiful places than the county of Yorkshire.
Emma Crabtree, the company’s founder, said, “A whopping 64% of our database encouraged us to expand into Yorkshire, and after two years of planning and researching, we couldn’t be happier to launch this new collection. Whether the rugged beauty of the Yorkshire Dales, the sprawling beaches of the Yorkshire Coast, the rolling chalk hills of the Yorkshire Wolds or the historic city of York, this is a county with so much to offer.”
As with all Crabtree & Crabtree’s holiday cottages, these delightful Yorkshire properties are handpicked for their charm, incredible locations and attention to detail. From miles of hiking and biking, Michelin-star dining, pretty market towns and fascinating history spanning the Vikings through to contemporary and well-loved artists, there is something to suit everyone, from families looking for outdoor adventure to couples seeking a rural bolthole.
Properties launching with the new Yorkshire collection include:
Bay View Cottage, Robin Hood’s Bay
Sleeps 2 guests | 1 bedroom |
From £999 per week
Bay View Cottage is a quaint coastal gem overlooking the famous Robin Hood’s Bay and is surrounded by nothing but charming fishing villages, moorland and the wild North Sea. Aside from the sound of crashing waves and the distant chatter of the sea bird colony, this quiet corner of the rugged Yorkshire coastline is a tonic for the busy soul.
Guests will love feasting on delicious garden produce straight from the vegetable garden, and there is also a bee colony, orchard and seemingly endless supply of berries and nuts. There may even be the odd bottle of homemade sloe gin.
