West Yorkshire

As this area is so blessed with classic English properties, renting West Yorkshire holiday cottages will allow you to discover why the locals refer to Yorkshire as God's Own Country. It's a county of splendid stately homes, historical industrial architecture and magnificent vistas from its Pennine hilltops. 

Spend a day at the magnificent Yorkshire Sculpture Park just outside Wakefield in a landscape initially laid out by Capability Brown, or go underground at the National Mining Museum at Caphouse Colliery a few miles further up the road. Visit Nora Batty's Steps in Holmfirth, location for the 'Last of the Summer Wine' TV series or explore the independent shops and art galleries in Hebdon Bridge and nearby Saltaire Mill. Spend days exploring the glorious Pennine hills and the myriad of grey stone villages clinging to their sides or the old mill towns nestling in the valleys.
