Hotels in North
North Yorkshire is England's largest county and one of the most rural. Each region within has its own distinct, natural beauty and charm. To the west of the county lie the famous and scenic and often rugged Yorkshire Dales, set into the Pennine hills, made up from a patchwork of fields and dry-stone walls. The countryside is breathtaking with many natural features and an abundance of rivers and streams, waterfalls and tarns (lakes).
To the east of the county are the North Yorkshire Moors, another area of outstanding natural beauty.

At the eastern edge of the county is the coast, with spectacular cliffs and sweeping sands. There are towns with narrow winding cobbled streets which have a feel of a bygone age, and also majestic Victorian holiday resorts, such as Robin Hood’s Bay, Whitby, and Flamborough Head.
Between the Dales and the Moors lies the Vale of York with the ancient city of York itself, Eboracum as it was known in Roman times. There are many attractions and rural market towns in the vale. North Yorkshire is an area of farms and farmland, of real people working in a real landscape - an agricultural environment and economy principally based on livestock which includes sheep and cattle The Yorkshire Dales is an area of great natural beauty, a large part of which has been designated as one of England and Wales' protected national parks. Much of the landscape here is limestone country - lush green valleys, known locally as "dales", crested with white limestone cliffs or locally known as Scars. Miles of limestone pavements cutting through wilder uplands beneath towering peaks of dark millstone grit. Throughout the dales, fields and pastures are bounded by distinctive white dry stone walls which criss-cross the hillsides in elaborate patterns. limestone cliffs originally built by sheep farmers in days gone by and escarpments these walls look almost a natural part of the limestone scenery as viewed today.
