Providing holiday happiness since 1970
Welcome to Ingrid Flute’s Yorkshire Holiday Cottages website, offering you a superb choice of holiday homes in Yorkshire, Teesdale & the Durham Dales, and Northumberland. We have been providing visitors with holiday accommodation and a high level of customer service since 1970, making us one of the countries longest established self-catering agencies, and Yorkshire’s largest independent, family-owned agency.
We have over 400 properties, offering you the perfect base to explore Yorkshire and the north of England. Whether you are looking for a cosy fisherman’s cottage or a stunning seaside apartment, a chocolate-box country cottage or a traditional farmhouse, we’re sure to have the ideal property for your holiday or short break. Many of our properties are dog friendly, so you don’t need to leave anyone behind. If you need a large holiday home, or fancy relaxing in style, choose from our range of luxury properties or those with a hot tub or swimming pool. We also have a great choice of timber lodges if you fancy a break in eco-friendly accommodation.
Our selection of Yorkshire coast holiday homes spans the length of Yorkshire’s beautiful heritage coastline. We have a great choice of accommodation in Whitby, popular throughout the year due to its maritime charm, and famous for its connections to James Cook and Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Scarborough is an excellent location for those wanting a traditional seaside holiday as well as those seeking all the attractions a large resort can offer. Our properties in the coastal villages, including Robin Hood’s Bay, Runswick Bay and Staithes and Sendsend, offer you the chance to stay in the old, sometimes quirky, traditional cottages in these picture-postcard traditional fishing villages.
Inland, we have a great range of accommodation in the North York Moors, often known as Heartbeat Country as it is the location of that long-running TV drama. If you fancy a holiday in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, have a look at our cottages in villages like Rosedale Abbey, Cropton, Danby, Glaisdale and Grosmont. The bustling towns and villages surrounding the moorland, such as Pickering, Helmsley and Thornton-le-Dale, offer a good choice of amenities as well as being a great location for touring the area.
The Yorkshire Dales scenery is what many people think of when imagining this area. Wide river valleys, criss-crossing dry stone walls and towering peaks and fells combine to produce the most magnificent landscapes. We have holiday homes throughout the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the surrounding area. The market towns of Skipton, Richmond, Leyburn and Hawes are always a popular location for a holiday throughout the year. Alternatively we have holiday homes in many Dales villages including Tosside, Bentham and Gunnerside in beautiful Swaledale.
If you would like to touring holiday around Yorkshire, the Vale of York is an excellent base. Here you can easily reach the coast, moors, dales and the historic city of York, with its many attractions which include York Minster, the Jorvik Viking centre and the National Railway Museum. For those who prefer to escape from the crowds, Teesdale and the Durham Dales offer the perfect destination. With a contrasting landscape of rivers and dales giving way to the rugged peaks of the Pennines, this is a stunning location for those who enjoy being in the great outdoors as well as those who want to see Yorkshire, County Durham and Cumbria. Our properties are located in and around the two main market towns; Barnard Castle, where you can visit the medieval castle and the Bowes Museum, and Middleton-in-Teesdale, which lies in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Further north we have a few select properties in Northumberland. Whether you want to see Hadrian’s Wall, enjoy the beautiful beaches and the many outdoor pursuits within the Northumberland National Park, or take a trip to Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders, this is a fantastic destination.
We have holiday guides on all our destinations so please visit our Top Locations section to find out more about the areas we cover. We also have a Festivals & Events section so that you can plan your holiday around some great days out. If you would like to holiday in the North West of England, please see our Red Rose Holiday Cottages website, which features holiday homes in Lancashire and Cumbria & the Lake District.
All of our properties are individually visited by a member of our team and assessed to ensure that they meet a standard which you would expect. In addition, many properties are graded as part of the Visit England Quality Assurance Scheme, and these will display a star rating as part of the description.
If you would like any further information, or have particular requirements, please do get in touch. Our customer focussed team have a wealth of knowledge about all our properties and locations. Everyone lives locally to where they work (either the Whitby office on the coast or the Leyburn office in the Yorkshire Dales) so you can be sure that you get advice from the local experts.
