Any visitor to the county of Yorkshire will probably be aware of the historic city of York, which has huge cultural significance across the whole of Europe. York has an ancient past stretching back to Roman times and the city has managed to retain its magnificent architecture through the ages from this time, when it has variously been a major settlement for the Vikings and a focal point in medieval Britain. Dominating the city is York Minster which is Europe's largest Gothic cathedral and miles of city walls which go back to the 13th century. York today is a great mix of historical buildings, impressive architecture and a modern vibrant city with superb shops, cafes, restaurants and visitor attractions. To the south and east of York lies the Yorkshire Wolds; an area of gentle rolling hills, picturesque villages and busy market towns, making just the perfect place for relaxed breaks, easy walking, great cycling routes and plenty of sightseeing at historic stately homes.
Curlew Cottage is situated within stunning open countryside in the Galphay area, just six miles from the beautiful cathedral city of Ripon. Ripon remains a relatively small and friendly Yorkshire city, with its Thursday market that fills the market square, and good mix of traditional boutiques, tearooms, gift shops and general stores sitting neatly around the market square. Ripon Cathedral is a magnificent building and well worth a visit. The popular Spa town of Harrogate is just a short drive with its wonderful architecture, upmarket shops, and not forgetting the famous Betty's Tearooms, a real Yorkshire treat! Just two miles from Curlew Cottage is Fountains Abbey, and the famous grounds of Studley Royal which are open to visitors to explore acre upon acre of un-spoilt parkland where the deer are free to roam. Curlew Cottage is perfect for both walkers and cyclists, and has achieved the Quality in Tourism Certificate for both walkers and cyclists.
