Yorkshire wins Europe’s Leading Destination Award 2013!

Yorkshire has beaten off the competition to win the title of Europe’s Leading Destination in the 2013 World Travel Awards. The award, widely regarded as the travel industry equivalent of an Oscar, has never been won by a location other than a major city or country in its 17 year history.

Being the home of our award-winning Yorkshire Dales Retreat we’ve always been huge fans of the county.

Located on the doorstep of the National Park, you’ll discover your own slice of rural England complete with breath-taking countryside views, rich history and wide range of flora and fauna.

You’ll be close enough to be able to stroll down the coast to coast path to Richmond, a pretty market town full of quaint cobbled streets and fine Georgian buildings. And, and when it comes to dining out, Yorkshire is home to more Michelin star restaurants than any other county in England; you’ll be spoilt for choice!

Our award-winning three bedroom lodges are nestled beautifully into the green hills of the Yorkshire Dales in over 55 acres of private land. Built with an emphasis on sustainability they are fully equipped with modern interiors complemented by bespoke furnishings and a huge expanse of floor to ceiling windows that bring your beautiful natural surroundings in.
