Aysgarth Falls is a popular spot in the Dales, and without the throngs of Summer visitors, it’s a lot more peaceful as well as the perfect picnic spot. It has even been said that salmon have been spotted there this time of year.
For some fresh sea air, why not take a crisp walk along one of Yorkshire’s finest sweeping beaches, we can highly recommend Fish & chips by the coast at Saltburn by the Sea. Or if you prefer to enjoy the crisp leaves turning orange and golden hues then we recommend Thorp Perrow Arboretum near Bedale, North Yorkshire with stunning woodland to explore as well as exotic birds and animals to meet and greet.
Richmond, is the perfect place to explore on an Autumn break in North Yorkshire. Revel in its 11th Century castle, dominating the town, high above the River Swale, a short walk from the large cobbled market place with a good choice of pubs and restaurants to choose from. Enjoy an evening at The Station, a stunning Victorian railway building with a café, award-winning artisan food shops, and art gallery.
After spending your days taking in the fresh Yorkshire air, there is no better excuse than to spend your evenings soaking your muscles in your own private hot tub with jacuzzi style jets to top it all off. Holiday at Home have a variety of holiday homes with private hot tubs to impress, for a romantic retreat or fun with the gang to enjoy with a glass of bubble as you watch the sun setting.
As the days become shorter and September offers its warm days and cooler evenings, nothing beats a cold Autumnal day when you are cosy indoors and there is no better time to stoke up your own log burning stove and stay warm in front of the fire. Add in a glass of red wine and a book or magazine then you’ve got a winning combination.
The evenings are drawing in and the leaves are turning a crisp golden colour. We know that the weather is changing but when there is somewhere warm and cosy with amazing interiors to retreat to, we don’t mind that the colder seasons are on the way.
