As the largest county in the UK, Yorkshire is a great place for couples, families and groups of friends who are looking to have a good time. Packed full of Roman and Viking heritage, there’s lots going on in this historic region and plenty of castles, abbeys, ruins and walls to explore. That’s not all either as Yorkshire is also home to two national parks – including the Yorkshire Dales – a range of incredible cities, towns and villages, forests, trails, mountains and more.
If you prefer to take things a little slower, you won’t be disappointed either. Yorkshire has lots of quaint market towns and villages with streets that are home to incredible architecture and scenery, and independent shops and cafes. It’s also fast becoming an amazing food destination with gastropubs, pop-up establishments and a fantastic nightlife scene in the cities.
Of course, a hot tub break in Yorkshire isn’t just about what’s outside. What’s inside your luxury lodge is just as important. And, from holiday homes along the North Yorkshire coast to those pet-friendly pads in the North York Moors, we guarantee every kind of traveller will find something here. Each of which have been picked for their first-class living and dining areas and private hot tub experiences.
So if you’re in charge of your next self-catering holiday, why not opt for a luxury lodge with a hot tub? We guarantee it’ll be a choice that everyone will thank you for.

Best for? A traditional seaside break
Our top property pick: Kaitkyella Lodge
Often referred to as Britain’s original seaside resort, if you want a typical beach break, Scarborough is a great option for all ages. It sits on the North Sea coast and the two sandy beaches are split by Scarborough Castle. There’s also a Victorian Tramway that links the town centre and harbour, and a few museums dotted around that provide an interactive history lesson. As well as this, there’s all the coastal attractions you’d expect and plenty of bars, pubs and restaurants to keep you full. The Peasholm Park Japanese gardens are a particularly great spot to wander around if you have a spare hour.
Best for? Family holidays
Our top property pick: Owl View
While Filey may have been a traditional fishing village back in the day, today it’s a haven for those families looking for a relaxing trip. It sits on the North Sea coast and is close to other popular beach resorts in Yorkshire – making it a great base. There’s also plenty of options when it comes to holiday cottages and the views are simply breathtaking. Of course, as with most coastal towns and villages, there’s lots of family-friendly attractions and places to eat too.
Best for? A busy city break
Our top property pick: Cunliffe House
If shopping, arts, entertainment, culture and food and drink are your idea of heaven, then a weekend in Leeds will definitely impress. Plus, if it’s luxury accommodation you’re after, that’s another box ticked. However you want to spend your days, you can – and you’re also ideally located to the Yorkshire countryside and coastal resorts if you fancy mixing it up. Come rain or shine, there’s always something to do, and the good old Northern spirit is guaranteed to find a place in your heart.
Best for? A little bit of culture
Our top property pick: Lake Farm Cottage
A traditional spa town in North Yorkshire, Harrogate has bundles of class, culture and top-notch attractions. It’s nestled on the east of the Yorkshire Dales National Park but, the town itself, also attracts visitors from afar, thanks to its delicious tearooms, historical Pump Room and local mineral springs. Spend your morning wandering around the streets and gardens before heading to one of the nearby establishments for a bite to eat. Come night time, this spa resort comes alive with bars and restaurants, comedy events and music nights all in full force.
Best for? Exploring the Dales
Our top property pick: End Cottage
In the heart of the Dales, and home to some of the best pubs around, Grassington is a great base for your Yorkshire adventure. Here, streets are lined with stone cottages, beautiful walkways and picture-perfect scenes that wouldn’t look out of place in a movie. And while it might be a sleepy village, it’s the perfect place to rest your head after a day in the fresh air. There are a few museums and independent shops in the centre though if you fancy staying closer to home – and we recommend that you try one of the local ales and beers. After all, when in Rome…
Sheffield Winter Garden
As one of the largest temperate glasshouses in the UK, and the largest urban glasshouse in Europe, it’s no surprise that the Winter Garden attracts visitors from all over the world. Home to more than 2,500 plants as well as several shops and cafes, it’s a great way to spend a few hours – or take shelter from the Yorkshire weather.
Yorkshire Wildlife Park
Rated as the UK’s top walkthrough wildlife experience, the Yorkshire Wildlife Park gives you the opportunity to meet real animals and reptiles from across the globe. Get involved with feeding, learn a few unknown facts and you might even spot a celebrity or two – as the venue hosts a few concerts throughout the year.
Release a little friendly competition at Xscape’s Snozone centre – the leading snow centre in the UK. Try your hand at skiing and snowboarding and afterwards get your breath back in the on-site cafe. Whether you’re a newbie or a snowy pro, this is a great activity for all ages. And, it involves actual snow.
York City Walls
Since Roman times, York has been defended by walls and today they still remain. Although not used as a defence mechanism now, they can be explored on foot. In fact, York has more parts of the wall intact than any other city in England. Wander around, take in the views and don’t forget to head to a nearby pub for a drink afterwards.
York’s Chocolate Story
York’s chocolate history goes back 300 years so it’s only right that they’ve got a museum dedicated to the stuff. Here, you’ll learn about York chocolate making, get to ask your sweetest questions and you might even get to taste some off cuts.
