Who doesn't want to take a break and have a getaway with family and friends? We are so lucky to live in one of the most beautiful places in the UK (if I do say so myself), but don't just take my word for it. Four of the top five English Getaways are in Yorkshire (and the other isn't far away). If you're looking for somewhere amazing to escape to, then take a close look at these rather grand retreats.
Personally, I love the look of the Thornton Lodge Cottage for a relaxing family weekend away. We usually have weekends away either at my Grandma's or at Youth Hostels, so this would be a luxurious alternative. I also think that Rose Cottage at Newbiggin Hall would be wonderful for a romantic getaway with my husband (although the last time we had a night away from the kids was three years ago when I was pregnant, so I can't see it happening any time soon)!
Have a look a English Getaways website for more information.
