Why holiday let with Classic Cottages

We might be new to Yorkshire, but with decades of experience in holiday lets across the UK, we are certainly not new to the world of holiday cottages, and we are very excited to bring the same Classic Cottages expertise to the North of England with the help of our lovely Area Manager Michelle.

Family-run and people-focused, we offer a personal service in which we nurture and support everyone from our guests to our owners to our staff, which is reflected in our Which? Recommendation and thousands of loyal customers and owners who return year after year for the level of service we provide.

As we’ve been working in the holiday let industry since 1977, we have grown to truly understand that it’s not just holiday cottages we’re offering. We provide the holiday and everything that comes with it, which is why we are always on-hand whether someone needs help finding that perfect holiday cottage in the Dales or somewhere spectacular to visit while away.

Your own dedicated Area Manager

With a wealth of experience from years in the industry, Michelle will be there to help you every step of the way as you let your self-catering holiday cottage in Yorkshire. Having worked in the North of England for many years, Michelle knows the draws of the area very well and understands that holidays in Yorkshire can be tailored to a variety of different tastes, from hiking holidays across the Dales to foodie tours that make the most of the many wonderful towns and villages.

Why choose Yorkshire for holiday letting?

Visitors choose self-catering holidays in Yorkshire because they want to escape to the great outdoors, from the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the beautiful Yorkshire coast. With multiple Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, guests can be sure their visit will be full of spectacular vistas – not to mention a great deal of heritage and history, from the tales of Robin Hood to the fascinating history of Barnard Castle.

The many pretty market towns in West Yorkshire offer visitors the chance to stroll along cobbled streets while sampling the many wonderful eateries, while the wilds of the Dales provide avid walkers with miles upon miles of stunning stomping ground before they retire to the warming embrace of their Yorkshire holiday cottage.

What should I buy in Yorkshire?

With location, location, location on most people’s minds, choosing the right spot can be very beneficial. Rural retreats in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales are always popular while cottages with hot tubs, swimming pools, and family-friendly holiday homes all appeal to a broad audience. Adding a log burner or open fire can help bring in guests throughout the cooler months as well.

To maximise your Yorkshire holiday cottage offering, include short breaks and out-of-season holidays alongside the usual week-long summer getaways. Creating a dog-friendly cottage can also boost your income by opening your property up to an even wider range of guests.
