Rugged moorlands, undulating dales, a rugged coastline and cultural cities make ‘God’s own country’ unmissable – and staying at one of the many pubs with rooms in Yorkshire and the Dales, is a treat indeed.
Yorkshire folk are extremely proud of their county, and rightly so. Take the beautiful walled city of York and its alluring Gothic Cathedral, popular Jorvik Viking Centre, Castle Museum and the twisting lanes of medieval houses, otherwise known as The Shambles, where you can shop and eat to your heart’s delight. Try The Hairy Fig, just one of the many charming delis serving everything from 100 year-old balsamic vinegar to local cheeses.
Or, head to the great outdoors and stay in rural pub accommodation in Yorkshire. The Dales are a must. Verdant valleys cut through with pretty rivers, craggy stone villages and wildflower meadows are interspersed with breathtaking natural sites, including Malham cove – a magnificent limestone formation in the national park, and some of the most impressive caves in the country.
Looking for wide open space? The purple moors and rolling hills of North Yorkshire await you. Dotted with photogenic country stone houses, hop on the steam train that winds its way from Grosmont, through Heartbeat land, to Pickering for a touch of nostalgia. You’ll also discover fantastic seaside. Try the pretty village of Robin Hood’s Bay, Scarborough and, of course: Whitby, with its iconic Benedictine Abbey.
Gastro Pubs in Yorkshire
Yorkshire considers itself as THE place for food and drink in England, and it may well be right. Boasting more Michelin-starred restaurants than anywhere else in the country (bar London), it certainly has the produce. Freshly caught succulent seafood, wild duck and a right good pork pie – its beauty is in its simplicity. And you can’t go wrong washing it down with a proper pint in one of our wonderful gastro pubs or country inns with rooms in Yorkshire.
If you fancy a day out in one of the vibrant cities there’s Leeds, Hull, Harrogate, Sheffield – each with their own unique vibe. Sold? Here’s our round-up of chic but charming pubs with rooms in Yorkshire.
