North Yorkshire provides astounding countryside with the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors. There's hills and valleys, pine forests and enchanting scenery, ensuring North Yorkshire deserves its title as God's Own Country. But don't forget the white sandy beaches, dramatic coastline and fishing villages on the coast, nor the cobbled streets of upmarket York and the many market towns.
