All our Yorkshire collections:
The largest county in England, Yorkshire, has a huge variety of countryside and a vast array of things to do whilst enjoying its wild beauty and rugged charm. The cities of York and Leeds and the spa town of Harrogate are good bases from which to explore and can boast many of the best places to stay in Yorkshire, but the countryside and villages are also teeming with good hotels and pubs.
The people of Yorkshire are rightly proud of their county and its sporting prowess and few who know it can have been surprised when Yorkshire came 15th in the medal table at the 2012 Olympics in London. Regarded as one of the spiritual heartlands of cycling in the UK, Yorkshire is a must for anyone who likes to explore on two wheels.
The best places to stay in Yorkshire get snapped up quickly during the busy summer months so early booking is recommended.
For those who prefer to base themselves somewhere more urban the excellent Hotel du Vin chain has places to stay in both York and Harrogate.
