Yorkshire is a large region in the north of England. It encompasses the counties of North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and East Riding, including the eastern coastline from the Humber all the way to Middlesborough, two national parks and a number of major UK cities. Thanks to the plentiful travel options, including rail, coach or even air, it's the perfect place to take a holiday in a self-catering cottage. Those arriving at their Yorkshire holiday cottage by car from London or the South will typically arrive via the major M1/A1 northbound route. Those arriving from Manchester, Liverpool or Wales should take the M62/A1 route, whilst those driving from the northeast or Scotland will also arrive via the A1, southbound.
Trains arrive in all major Yorkshire towns and cities, including those along the coast and in the region's national parks. Major rail hubs in the cities of York, Leeds and Sheffield receive trains from London, Liverpool, Manchester, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Birmingham. From these major railway stations, it's possible to reach the rest of Yorkshire's towns and villages via the region's extensive railway network, making it easy to reach your holiday cottage. Coaches also arrive in the larger towns and cities of Yorkshire from major UK cities.
For those travelling to their Yorkshire cottage by air, there is one international airport in the region, Leeds Bradford Airport located in West Yorkshire. It's also possible to reach Yorkshire from Newcastle Airport, located in the northeast of England or East Midlands Airport, located close to Derby and Nottingham. Those arriving at Newcastle or East Midlands Airport will need to travel by rail or car to continue their journey to Yorkshire.
