Further to: Yorkshire and Derbyshire. Places to stay

Jump to last reply

Hello again to all the people who already gave me such good advise on places to see in Derbyshire and Yorkshire. I have so enjoyed just reading all the information via the links you gave me and loved your pictures Morgana!

We have decided to take the ferry to Hull from mainland Europe arriving in the early morning. We have the entire day before meeting our friends in Bakewell that evening. Depending on the weather on that day we will either drive via Lincoln (only to see the cathedral) or drive to the Yorkshire sculpture park in Wakefield before driving down to meet our friends in Bakewell. We will decide a few days ahead of time.

Our next stop is York. I have been trying to find a nice hotel or B&B in town but found that many accommodations only do a minimum of two nights on weekends. We don't necessarily have to stay in York itself of course. All suggestions for are most welcome.

The next day we plan to drive north via Rievaulx Abbey across the Moors (route A169) to Whitby. Any suggestions for places to stay again bring 'm on. Of course we will have to sample the best fish and ships in the UK before leaving Whitby.

From there we will drive North to Newcastle just for the drive. There might be time left to see some of Durham but we have basically decided to leave that for the next time when we hope to see more of Northumberland. One has to make choices.

Thanks in advance for your tips and suggestions.
