Guide To Holidaying In North Yorkshire
A guide by Tasha Sewell
Yorkshire is big, bold, and a beautiful part of England. It's a wonderfully diverse region offering you romantic moorland, pretty villages, lively cities and grand sweeping coastlines. Yes, you'll find world-class attractions and award-winning sights - but you'll also discover that Yorkshire has retained its own distinctive charm too. In Britain it is often known as "God's own country". And it's true that you won't find better countryside anywhere in Britain - Yorkshire has more square miles of National Park than any other English region. It's easy to walk, ride or drive on your own memorable personal adventure through the rolling green dales, rocky highlands, lush green woods and lovely wide open spaces.
North Yorkshire Moors have vast areas of heather, separated with dales and woodland. There are many historic houses, ruined castles and monasteries you will find yourself stumbling across also. The famous Lyke Walk is something you must experience, with breathtaking views which cannot be missed nor imagined. The walk traditionally starts in Osmotherly and ends in Ravenscar, and although it is a 40 mile trek, it can be done in a day.
The Yorkshire Dales has got to be some of the most stunning scenery in England. It is everyone's idea of peace and tranquility, as the region id un-spoilt and dotted with delightful towns and villages. The charming buildings cater for your every want; you will find tea rooms to craft shops. It is an ideal place to walk the dog and check out the local produce in the colourful markets and discover the history beneath the towns in the castles, abbeys, stream railways and magnificent gardens all open for your viewing.
The Vale of York stands at the edge of Hambledon Hills at Sutton Bank and is a never ending stretch of lush vegetation. Gliders are launched from this very spot and on the side of the hills you will see a white horse carved into the chalk to mark the best viewing point. The city of York is in the Vale and is one of the ancient cities of England. Rich in history you will find it quite unique. With loads to see and do in York, there is something to entertain you and the family day and night. North of York there is a cluster of smaller towns such as Thirsk, Ripon and Bedale which were originally market towns.
