Retire in North Yorkshire, home of the Yorkshire dales
If you’re a lover of nature, North Yorkshire is the place for you. Being home to both the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, the county is 40% covered in national parks providing an endless number of relaxing strolls, or exciting adventures to be had. Scattered across these green pastures are hundreds of exciting landmarks and miracles of nature to visit, such as the dreamy West Burton Waterfall just a few minutes away from Burton Village. Or Whitby Abbey, a 7th century monastery still towering today over the cliffs of Whitby.
Things to do in North Yorkshire
There’s so much to enjoy in and around the county, but if you’re not familiar with the local area, here are just a few of the activities you can enjoy.
In terms of heritage, food and overall beauty York sets itself apart from any other city in England. The charming rustic streets enclosed by buildings of all shapes and sizes from different periods in York’s history provide a plethora of highly rated cafes and restaurants to stop of by for a spot of lunch, just before heading over to York Minster, one of the largest cathedrals in Northern Europe making it a must see.
North Yorkshire still to this day is home to many grand castles, abbeys, monastic houses and more. Just one example is Byland Abbey – an outstanding example of early gothic architecture that inspired much of the design of York Minster. As well as the Abbey, there’s a Circular walk from Byland Abbey via Mount Snever Observatory which anyone can enjoy.
York City contains hundreds of unique shops from family run wool-work shops to well-known department stores and all year-round Christmas shops! Whatever it is your looking for will always be right round the corner and easily found.
Being such an open and hilly county, North Yorkshire provides some of the most interesting, scenic, and rewarding walks you could ask for. Whether you’re hiking around Malham Tarn, England’s highest lake, or sauntering through the woodlands in the Yorkshire dales, you’ll never feel dissatisfied.
