Enjoy a cosy country break this winter!

The weather’s a little bit chilly and our mood is a little bit blue. That’s why January and February are the perfect months for a cosy country break to Yorkshire. Here’s some of the reasons why:

Enjoy a cosy country break in Yorkshire this winter

Snuggle up on a cosy country break

When it’s cold outside there’s nothing nice than lighting up the fire and pouring a large glass of red in a cosy country cottage. Lots of our country cottages come with underfloor heating too to keep things extra toasty on your cosy country break!


Light up the fire and enjoy a good old catch up.

The gorgeous former Drover’s Inn is now a warm and cosy holiday cottage in Osmotherley with a fabulous Inglenook Fireplace at it’s heart. Find out more.

Dugdales Barn

Grab a glossy and settle down by the fire for the afternoon.

With a prime location just off the market square, Dugdales Barn is a luxurious Settle holiday Cottage with underfloor heating, a wood-burning fire and lots of original features. Find out more.

The Hay Bale

Definitely time for a glass of red and some nibbles.

Nestled in the Howardian Hills, close to the village of Sheriff Hutton is The Haybale, a spacious yet cosy holiday cottage for two. The perfect weekend escape it’s surrounded by gorgeous Yorkshire countryside. Find out more.

Relax in a country pub

There’s so many country pubs in Yorkshire that you’ll never be short of somewhere to visit. You’ll find original features, cask ales, hearty food and an even heartier welcome to four-legged friends. Some to try include:

The Craven Arms at Appletreewick

The Craven Arms, Appletreewick, Yorkshire Dales National Park

This traditional Inn near Skipton is pretty as a picture outside and cosy and warm inside. You’ll find cask ales, a wooden bar, roaring log fire and fabulous views.

The Farmers Arms at Muker

The fantastic Farmers Arms Pub just around the corner. Open fire, great food and a very friendly welcome awaits

This welcoming pub in Upper Wensleydale is close to Reeth and does some delicious home-made food. Great for doggies and walkers as they welcome ‘Muddy Boots (or paws)’ on their flag stoned floor.

The Queens Arms in Litton

The Queens Arms is just a stone's throw away, a great foodie pub recommended by Alistair Sawday

Tucked away in one of the lesser-known Dales (Littondale), The Queens Arms is a 17th century inn that’s been accredited by Alistair Sawday and is well worth seeking out.

The Crown at Hutton Le Hole

Located in Hutton-le-Hole, in our opinion one of the prettiest villages in the North York Moors you’ll find the real ales and tasty food you would expect from a country pub.

The Grapes at Slingsby

The Grapes Slingsby - a fantastic Yorkshire country pub

The pretty village of Slinsgby sits in between Helmsley, Malton and York and The Grapes does a selection of craft beers including their own Slingsby Pale Ale. It’s also a top choice for a Sunday Roast!

Enjoy a refreshing walk

We love walking in Yorkshire at any time of year. There’s always something different to see as the seasons change. Walking during January and February is a great way to kick-start an exercise plan and to get some fresh air in your lungs.

Saltwick Bay near Whitby, North Yorkshire Coast

Top picks include walking the Cleveland Way and stopping in at some coastal villages along the way. It’s much quieter than in the summer so it’s a great time to explore.
