Northern England region

York is a beautiful city in its own right, yet, is also a fantastic location to access the Yorkshire Coast, the Dales and cities for shopping e.g. Leeds and Harrogate. There are a wealth of fabulous beauty spots and places of interest both within York and within a short drive.

Local places of interest are Castle Howard, Beningborough Hall and Harewood House - fine stately homes. Pickering with its steam railway, historic Knaresborough with Mother Shipton's Cave, Helmsley, a quaint town with its own castle and 2 grand abbeys close by.

The Yorkshire Coast is approximately 1hr away with Whitby, Scarborough, Robin Hoods Bay, Flamborough Head, Filey and Bridlington as places with natural beauty, history and wild life. Lightwater Valley and Flamingoland are two popular theme parks approx 1hr away by car or bus.


York is an all year round place to visit. It is a haven of tourist attractions suitable for adults and children alike many of which are under cover making it an ideal family holiday what ever the British weather throws at us! York is known as a 'City of Festivals', the list is endless (google 'York Festivals' for more details). Examples include festivals for Food and Drink, Science, Vikings, Dance, Ebor (racing) and various Christmas festivals.

Attractions include : The Minster, numerous Museums (including The National Railway Museum and Castle Museums), Jorvik Centre, York Dungeon, York Ghost Tours, Horse and Cart Rides, Tour Buses and the historic city walls.

If you like shopping then York has a varied selection of designer shops and boutiques. Regular themed markets are held in the square and then at night York comes into it's own with more tourist events, bars, night clubs and eating places to suit every style and pocket.

"Best friends catching up"

My best friend and I spent a lovely weekend in York and decided on a weekend rent rather than a hotel or B&B. It was a lovely place - very central so could walk everywhere. The owners were very hospitable and made us feel very welcome. And we very much appreciated their flexibility with the departure time. A very minor point - from the photos, I thought there was an outside area with our apartment, but this didn't spoil our enjoyment of staying in Duke's lodge. Many thanks.
