This year, the need for a UK staycation has never been so popular, cutting out any anxiety about travelling abroad, but in desperate need for a change of scenery and time to relax and catch up with friends and family or simply just appreciate some alone time...

This October, why not escape the news and book a trip to North Yorkshire for a cosy family holiday, a romantic retreat, or plan a big group getaway for a special occasion! Nothing beats a break to North Yorkshire at any time of year, however, there is something very special about getting wrapped up warm and heading outdoors to explore the ever-changing colourful North Yorkshire landscape. With the crowds thinning out, it is a fantastic time to go exploring the famous and interesting sites nearby with plenty of outdoor activities now open as well as acres of picturesque countryside to discover.

Holiday at Home have something to offer everyone with luxury lakeside lodges, traditional Yorkshire holiday cottages for hot tub breaks as well as large luxury farmhouses for a bigger group or a family holiday.

Here are our top 3 Staycations this October in North Yorkshire…

1. A family get away…

Whether you are looking for a rural retreat with the grandparents included or you would prefer a townhouse close to amenities, Holiday at Home has plenty of family-friendly holiday homes to choose from, with everything you should need when you arrive. For your little one, we can include a cot, high-chair, and a baby bath on request, so that you can have the most special, stress-free family holiday to North Yorkshire.

Brompton Lakes has 26 acres of Yorkshire countryside to explore and whether its rain, snow or shine, you will all be able to relax and unwind with our luxury features from unique log burners inside the lodges to our exclusive Hot Tub and Sauna area perfect for parents who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle.

On-site there is plenty to keep the whole family entertained with complimentary bike hire, a games area as well as a tennis court, perfect for a family to escape to the country. The lodges are surrounded by acres of gorgeous Yorkshire countryside across two lakes to explore the great outdoors during your stay, with a variety of picturesque walks from your doorstep before retiring to your own luxury surroundings.

Many mums like to be close to amenities. So it’s comforting to know that the historic market town of Richmond with its shops and tearooms is only a short walk away from a number of our holiday homes and we have properties of all sizes depending on your guest list. 30 Frenchgate is perfect for a big group of up to 10 guests with Porte House opposite sleeping up to 6 or combine both properties for a larger group of up to 16.  Enjoy a riverside retreat at Darcy Mews with 1, 2 or 3 bedroom apartments on offer.

Richmond’s market town has plenty to offer all ages including a medieval Castle, restaurants, cafés and plenty of riverside picnic spots along the way. Spend your days getting lost at the Station, a stunning Victorian railway building with a café, award-winning artisan food shops as well as an art gallery all under one roof.

2. Group getaway at Greenbank Barns

With families and friends being apart for such a long time, we understand how much you have all missed your loved ones so this October is the perfect time to catch up and make up for lost times… Maybe you have missed a big birthday celebration, wedding or fancy making a big deal of the next special occasion on the calendar? Now is the perfect opportunity to get your diaries out and get a date set for a group getaway to Greenbank Barns this October, sleeping up to 28 guests across 3 luxury holiday homes so nobody needs to get left behind. The Farmhouse and Dexter both sleep 10 and Shorthorn sleeps 8. Dexter has enough space for the whole tribe to be in one place at one time too, inside and out… A perfect group getaway to North Yorkshire!

3. Just the two of you

For couples who dream of spending their days hidden away together in their own private haven, The Palins at Sun Hill Farm is the ideal rural retreat complete with stylish interiors, a log burning stove and a private garden with the most picturesque Yorkshire views of countryside and horses grazing nearby.

As the weather turns and the night’s grow longer, there is no better time than October to grab a few nights away cosied up by the fire or enjoying breakfast in bed in a big cosy bedroom. This charming one-bedroom cottage is the perfect setting from which to experience the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales from, wrap up and enjoy a crisp country walk or a day exploring Leyburn, the roaring log burner awaits. Relax into the comfortable leather sofa, watch an indulgent afternoon film, or relish in a good book curled up in the cowhide armchair; the perfect idyllic retreat for any couple looking to spend quality time together. Swap your plate for a picnic basket with Yorkshire’s scenery providing a spectacular backdrop for any alfresco dining and make it extra special by sourcing all your ingredients locally from one of Yorkshire’s brilliant farm shops nearby.
