Pet-friendly accommodation in the North York Moors
This upland region is a wonderful dog-friendly holiday destination. With large open spaces with virtually no restrictions for dogs, it’s a perfect place for long treks with your dog. The North York Moors contains one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in England. Gaining its national park status in 1952, the North York Moors covers an area of 554 square miles. Known as ‘God’s own country’, Yorkshire is known for its extreme weather conditions making it a tough but rewarding place to farm and live. The moors’ stark beauty has inspired artists and writers to write many famous works.
It is also a major draw for those of you seeking a holiday destination looking to embrace the great outdoors. From coast to tall hilltop, the North York Moors have many outdoor landmarks to discover. The northern moors’ coastline is a varied mixture of terrains with rugged cliff tops, peaceful bays with pretty fishing villages and sandy beaches. Whitby, Sandsend and Robin Hood’s Bay are amongst some of the star attractions of the Yorkshire coast, in the north area of the moors. You can embark on Wainwright’s Coast to Coast Trail in the latter.
Visit Eskdale, divided by the River Esk as it meanders down to the North Sea, the charming local scenery and well-kept villages of the northern moors are a delight to visit. The very best way to see them is by train on the Esk Valley Line which runs between Middlesbrough and Whitby (home of the Dracula legend) every day. Lake Eskdale is another wonderful sight to behold as you take a lovely stroll along its shoreline.
