Yorkshire, the largest and most diverse county in England. Not without justification do Yorkshiremen call their county 'God's own country'. From the stunning countryside of the Yorkshire Dales National Park with it's rolling hills and valleys studded with beautiful villages and old market towns to the historic North Yorkshire coast with it's famous resorts of Whitby, Scarborough and Filey and the wild North York Moors, Yorkshire is packed with ancient castles, ruined abbeys and majestic stately homes of the aristocracy. No other county can match it for it's beauty and heritage.

Stayed at Foss haven over the new year with family 6 adults 2 children, What a great little house, looks small from the front but a good size inside having 3 doubles 1 being en-suite and 2 single rooms with 1 family bathroom.
it was really good didn't use the cars nearly all week except when we went for a visit to Creepy Crawlies children's center........The location of this house is great for walking in to York which is about 5 minutes into the center with all its great Restaurants shops and bars.
Also recommend York's Ghost walk, what a good laugh only £5 for 1.5 hours.
Will be defiantly be coming back to either this house or one of the others that are for hire
