You don’t have to wait for the School Holidays to getaway to Yorkshire with your family. A weekend short-break is the perfect chance to spend some quality time together (especially if you have been working hard all week).
Here are some of our favourite family friendly holiday cottages. They are perfect for keeping everyone (children and adults alike) happy!
Gateways in Thornton-le-Dale
This handsome stone cottage sleeps up to 5 people within 3 bedrooms. It’s located in the pretty village of Thornton-le-Dale with plenty of things to do nearby. From heading to the coast to a picnic in the forest it’s perfect for a family holiday. Find out more.
We recommend: visiting nearby Dalby Forest and try the Gruffalo Trail or Go Ape.
Curlew Cottage in Goathland
We love the outside space at Curlew Cottage. Not only is a large lawned garden but you can explore the owners private estate and spot up to 80 varieties of wildlife and birds. Inside there’s a games room where you can have a game of pool or ping pong or settle on the bean bags to watch a film on the wide screen TV.
Anvil Cottage in Masham
This family-friendly holiday cottage in Nidderdale is located right next to the owner’s farm. Children will love collecting eggs from friendly chickens, saying hello to the horses and watching sheepdogs being trained. It’s the perfect escape to the country! Find out more.
We recommend: heading to nearby Lightwater Valley for thrills, spills and rollercoasters
Park Cottage, Yorkshire Wolds
We love the pretty village location of Park Cottage. Hotham has a country pub and is surrounded by gorgeous Yorkshire Wolds countryside. The enclosed garden is perfect for children to run around and play. Parents can keep a watchful eye while taking a dip in the hot tub! Find out more.
We recommend: Heading to nearby William’s Den – an outdoor adventure play centre which includes zip wires, rope bridges and climbing.
Appletree Cottage in Sandsend
Oh I do love to be beside the seaside! Appletree Cottage in Sandsend is the perfect choice if you fancy heading to the beach with a bucket and spade for a family holiday. There’s lots of space for up to 6 people and the tiered garden includes a lovely patio area – the perfect spot to just sit and catch up. Find out more.
We recommend: Going fossil hunting on the beach! The North York Moors coastline is known as the Jurassic Coast so you may find something dating back to the dinosaurs.
