The events in E M Forster’s wonderful novel ‘A room with a view’ unfold against the backdrop of Florence in Italy. A truly beautiful city and one which affords many spectacular views from hotel windows.
The desire to have a view from any holiday accommodation is universal. To be able to sit and gaze out at either a cityscape or an expanse of countryside is an innate pleasure. It offers us a chance to stop and just observe, to relax and marvel at the world around us.
So which of our luxury Yorkshire cottages have the best views? I’ve cherry-picked just a few below, but there are many more in the Gorgeous Cottages collection. Take a look and see which cottage with a view in Yorkshire appeals to you the most…
