Finding your ideal Yorkshire holiday home

Published Mar 12, 2013 – 2 mins read

Many people dream of having their own Yorkshire holiday home to give them the freedom to visit whenever they want, for however long they desire. The beautiful landscape of North Yorkshire offers holiday home finders the choice of buying either in The Yorkshire Dales or The Yorkshire Moors and in turn opens up opportunities to acquire either a rural or coastal retreat, something our North East team have been helping our clients to achieve.

The best locations for a Yorkshire holiday home

To the east lies the North Yorkshire Moors National Park with its borders stretching along the picturesque east coast. This area is well known for its traditional British coastal retreats, such as Runswick Bay with period cottages offering panoramic views of the bay, the historic fishing village of Staithesand Sandsend where you can walk all the way along the beach to Whitby. Which are all very picturesque and idyllic locations to consider when searching for the perfect Yorkshire holiday home.

Just a short distance inland lays the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, famous as James Herriot Country and the home of the Calendar Girls. The area is made up of varied countryside offering the beauty of nature as well as the facilities of its towns. Favourites are the popular riverside retreats of Appletreewick, home to two award winning pubs, Burnsall on the river and Grassington that offers the facilities similar to a town, but still has the quaint charm of a village.

The Garrington Harrogate office has recently acted as a holiday home finder to many clients searching for the perfect Yorkshire holiday home in these areas where the motivations behind a purchase have been diverse, yet still require the same level of expertise and ability to think laterally to find and secure their ideal property.

In the current financial climate, Garrington, one of the UK’s leading home finders,  have been approached by an increasing number of clients attracted by both the financial and leisure benefits of investing in a holiday home when contrasted with other more traditional underperforming investments and savings. A holiday property creates the prospect of rental income with the option to let it out to holiday makers when it is not being used. This is often a popular choice, and whilst the property may require extra maintenance and costs, it is frequently seen as a safe investment in North Yorkshire.
