Barn Conversion

Spacious, beamed, with plenty of exposed wood and big windows for maximum light, barn conversions are a desirable type of holiday home in Yorkshire.  High, often vaulted ceilings, create an impression of cavernous interiors. Recent builds frequently incorporate under-floor heating which warms from the toes up. It’s a very nice sensation to walk barefoot on such a floor, especially in bathrooms and shower rooms.

Woodburners are also often found in barn conversions and add welcome warmth to big living spaces. A starter pack of logs is normally supplied to holiday guests. These may last the entire letting period.

Pine Lodge

There is often decking to sit out on, a hot tub and inside there may be a steam room or sauna.

Pine lodges in Yorkshire are often set in groups on lawned or wooded areas. The big holiday parks may have rows of lodges set beside a lake, golf course or around a central leisure centre with a swimming pool and communal facilities. This helps reduce the rental rate.


Bungalows are a desirable form of holiday accommodation for anyone with walking difficulties. As such, they suit holidaymakers who have to use a stick or walking frame, also toddlers who may be unsteady on their feet.

The bungalows with wheelchair access and wide doorways will be suitable for disabled guests. However, it is important to check that they have the complete package of disability features including grab bars.

Kitted out for self-catering, an apartment offers sufficient space for that comfortable holiday and enough facilities to cook and wash in the accommodation is people would do in their own homes. It can be a cost-effective way of enjoying a holiday in Yorkshire.

The only downside for dog owners is that there is no garden to allow a dog out into safely. Dogs will have to be taken for walks to deal with their daily needs.

Large House
