Many people dream of having their own holiday home to give them the freedom to visit whenever they want for however long they desire. The beautiful landscape of North Yorkshire offers buyers the choice of either The Yorkshire Dales or The Yorkshire Moors and in turn opens up opportunities to acquire either a rural or coastal retreat.

If water is your attraction then there is a multitude of choice between coastal or riverside locations.

To the east lies the North Yorkshire Moors National Park with its borders stretching along the picturesque east coast. This area is well known for its traditional British coastal retreats such as Runswick Bay with period cottages offering panoramic views of the bay, the historic fishing village of Staithes and Sandsend where you can walk all the way along the beach to Whitby.

Heading inland one encounters the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales National Park famous as James Herriot Country and the home of the Calendar Girls. The area is made up of varied countryside offering the beauty of nature as well as the facilities of its towns. Favourites are the
popular riverside retreats of Appletreewick, home to two award winning pubs, Burnsall on the river and Grassington whilst only a village offers the facilities of a town.

Julian Rich from Garringtons Harrogate office has recently acted for clients searching for homes in these areas where the motivations behind a purchase have been diverse, yet still require the same level of expertise and ability to think laterally to find and secure their ideal property.

The searches were also in areas that he knows well and therefore has been able to offer his own direct experiences having enjoyed holidays in both locations, often walking his Cocker Spaniel by the River Wharfe or along the beach at Runswick and Sandsend.

In the current financial climate, Garrington have been approached by an
increasing number of clients attracted by both the financial and leisure benefits of investing in a holiday home when contrasted with other more traditional underperforming investments and savings.

A holiday property creates the prospect of rental income with the option to let it out to holiday makers when it is not being used. This is often a popular choice and whilst it may require extra maintenance and costs on the property, it is frequently seen as a safe investment in North Yorkshire.

Purchasing a holiday property poses great opportunities to individuals and families, offering the chance to take a self catering holiday without having to take all the usual essentials. Time is often spent on holiday researching and touring the area, but a holiday home has the benefit of allowing an owner the chance to relax straight into the retreat in an area they know and like.

Whilst not offering a guaranteed place in the sun, the rich tapestry of landscapes, lifestyle and coastline found in Yorkshire is increasingly appealing to a wider group of buyers looking for a special holiday home.

Garrington work for private and corporate clients who want to buy their next residential property for either a primary residence, holiday home or an investment.
