Explore Yorkshire this Autumn…

Nothing beats a break to North Yorkshire at any time of year, however there is something very special about getting wrapped up warm, heading outdoors and exploring the ever changing colourful North Yorkshire landscape before retiring with a glass of wine in front of a roaring log fire in the comfort of your own holiday home, it doesn’t get much better!

Whether you are looking for peace and tranquillity or the chance to explore picturesque countryside, there is something very special about an Autumn break to North Yorkshire with Holiday at Home and here are our five top reasons why to visit this season…

1.     Get Outdoors…

Yorkshire is known to offer some of the best walking country in the UK with the most picturesque landscapes, and it only gets better in the Autumn months... Warm browns, rich oranges and deep reds are all around us at this time of year making the perfect backdrop for an afternoon stroll or a more challenging hill walk.

There are plenty of places to explore in Yorkshire, whether you fancy a day out at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal with medieval ruins, tranquil water gardens and a deer park, or why not visit Thorp Perrow and witness the variety of colours with endless rows of leaves in a rainbow of shades as well as meet the animals and watch a flying demonstration at the Bird of Prey centre.

Nobody needs to get left behind either on your escape to the countryside as with plenty of trees to sniff and fallen leaves to roll in, your four-legged friend is sure to enjoy a dog friendly break to North Yorkshire too!

The George and Dragon in Hudswell has recently been voted the ‘best pub in the UK’ by CAMRA and is within stumbling distance of Woodcroft Cottage, our two bedroom cosy holiday cottage and is a must visit for a friendly Yorkshire welcome, a real ale and a proper pie.
