North York Moors holiday cottages

North York Moors holiday cottages

This National Park is twice the size of the Isle of Man and famous for its woodland, forest and acres of heather moorland.

It is also home to Britain’s scarcest butterfly, the Duke of Burgundy butterfly, in addition to 21 species of orchid.

Perhaps less well known is that it boasts the steepest public road in England (1 in 3 at Rosedale’s Chimney Bank) as well as the UK's world leading Dark Matter research project, with particle detection experiments run 1.1km underground at Boulby mine!

With the least amount of rainfall, it’s apparently the driest National Park.  And it has some of the darkest skies in England, making it ideal for star gazing.

So day or night, there’s every reason to visit this beautiful part of England.
