Holiday Cottages Within 1 Hour of a York City Visit

Derived from the Old Norse word 'Jorvik', York as it is now well known, is one of the jewels of Northern England and is a thriving tourist destination for both domestic and international visitors seeking some or all of the absorbing history, great shopping and refined eating and drinking experiences available in this popular city.

In York there is history in every stone and cobble and it would be almost criminal not to see at least some of it on a day trip. York Minster is one of the most magnificent cathedrals, while the Railway Museum is a cathedral to steam. The Jorvik Viking Centre allows you to see (and smell) what life was like a millennium ago, or a more fragrant time can be had at York’s Chocolate Story which charts the story behind how York became the home of Kit-Kat, Chocolate Oranges and many more chocolaty favourites.

Finding a cottage nearby is easy and we have selected a small selection below for you to take a look. If you'd like a few more then just follow the link at the bottom where we'll show you all of our holiday cottages which are within roughly 1 hours drive time of the city meaning that you can enjoy the best of both worlds - the vibrancy, buzz and entertainment of the town and the rather more picturesque and relaxing surroundings of your country retreat.
