Yorkshire is a breath-taking part of the UK boasting peaceful, scenic countryside and a plethora of visitor attractions in the surrounding area. In fact, the city of York claims to have more visitor attractions per square mile than any other destination in the UK.
Quite a claim; but it is easy to see why they can say this when you wander around the walled city which has something to offer people of all ages and interests. You will never run out of things to do no matter how many times you visit the region, with new attractions and places of interest to be found each and every time you come back to the region.
A new addition to the Darwin Escapes portfolio of holiday parks is The Kilnwick Percy Resort in Pocklington just 15 miles outside of York city centre. It is perfectly located to allow you to take advantage of the many visitor attractions that this architectural masterpiece of a city has to offer whilst also giving you the opportunity to explore the stunning Yorkshire Wolds countryside.
The KP Resort is famous in the Yorkshire region for its stunning facilities and accommodation which make it one of the most sought after holiday accommodation providers in the region. It is perhaps most famous for its exquisite two storey log cabin style holiday lodges which are equipped with you could ask for on your break away from home.

You will be simply blown away when you see them in the flesh.
Two to four bedroom lodges are available to let at The KP Resort, with pet friendly options also provided so that no member of your family has to be left back home. It simply wouldn’t be fair to deprive anyone of these outstanding levels of luxury. Some of the lodges even come with their own private hot tub facilities on the outdoor decking area provided, so you can sit out at any time and take in the outstanding tranquillity that the Yorkshire Wolds affords. The perfect setting for hot tub breaks in Yorkshire.
Also designed to take full advantage of the surrounding hills and countryside on our 180 acres of land are our Woodland hotel pods which are pretty much unlike anything else you will experience.

It is easy to see how York can claim to have more visitor attractions per square mile than any other UK holiday destination, with it being filled with sites of historic wonders and fun family destinations; simply something for everyone.
At its centre is the famous York Minster building – construction of which was commenced as far back as 1220 and took until 1480 to complete. The gothic architecture is simply stunning and it continues to be a major crowd pleaser to this day. Visitors can take advantage of the museum located inside which guides you through over 2,000 years of York’s history so you can develop an understanding how this the city came to be as it is today – navigating you through various conquests and periods of colourful British rule.
On the topic of one of York’s rulers, no visit to York would be complete without heading to the Jorvik Viking Centre which has recently undergone a major multi-million pound redevelopment. Here you will get the opportunity to learn more about these Scandinavian conquerors and their rich culture.
Looking outside of York city centre, we’d also strongly recommend that you take advantage of one of the day trips which are on offer to the Yorkshire Dales where you’ll get the opportunity to explore the National Park and make a stop to explore the 14th Century Bolton Castle. Soap lovers will also be in for a treat when you make a stop at the Falcon Inn, otherwise known as the ‘Woolpack’ in the ITV Series ‘Emmerdale’.
Other attractions on offer in this glorious region include the ever popular Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster and also the beautiful Valley Gardens in wonderful Harrogate.
