Yorkshire, or ‘God’s own county’, is known for its stunning views and rolling vistas. One national newspaper claimed that it is the most ‘Instagrammed’ county in England, and in 2013 the little towns and hamlets of Yorkshire beat off some of the planet’s cultural heavy weights like London, Paris and Lisbon to be named Europe’s premier travel destination in 2013.
Yorkshire at its Best
Whether you want self-catering walking holidays, a break from the hustle and bustle of city life or the joyful bougee-ness of small hotels, Bedale, Ripon, Grassington, Masham and all the other picturesque villages of North Yorkshire bring the value in spades. From walking on the North Yorkshire Moors, cycling along the reclaimed railway lines or getting ready for locally sourced food in one of the many small hotels in the area, there is an endless variety of activities, experiences and small joys to be had in the green jewel of the North. Yorkshire has even taken on the continent at some of it’s biggest celebrations, and the Tour de France now detours over the channel to the rolling Yorkshire dales for a small sightseeing tour past country pubs and village hotels.
Self-Catering and Small Hotels
Bedale, like elsewhere in the beautiful rolling Yorkshire countryside, is home to many warm and cosy accommodation options for visitors and travellers of all sorts. It was the railways that really brought tourism to the area, as for the first time people could make their way north without the discomfort and difficulty of travelling by horse drawn carriage on dirt roads. All sorts of accommodation options sprang up all over the county as local people made space for visitors, and ever since the area has been known for its friendly bed and breakfasts, warm and easy guest houses and high-quality small hotels.
