The bustling town of Thirsk boasts a quaint marketplace, splendid Georgian buildings, a Norman church, and excellent pubs, shops, restaurants, a cinema, and a leisure centre. Visit the World of James Herriott Museum, dedicated to the life and works of the town’s own famous vet and author, or explore the surrounding rolling countryside and Hambleton Hills, offering excellent walking opportunities. The cathedral city of York and the beautiful East Coast are within easy driving distance. Get dressed up to the nines and enjoy a spot of horseracing at Thirsk Racecourse.

As you enter this charming cottage, you'll find a lounge that the owners have designed with your comfort and leisure in mind. Observing the charming village from the vintage sash window. A fireplace with a wood mantel and a brick hearth was preserved with careful attention to detail while maintaining a modern and fashionable interior. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to prepare a feast. Gather your group around the table for dinner and tell tales of your adventures.

A very quaint cottage in a beautiful village.Everything you need is provided and well equipped. The log burner is a bonus on a very cold night and the proximity to a lovely local pub.A simple flat walk takes you straight into thirsk where you'll find many pubs and eateries and all you need for a perfect stay.

A very pretty , well equipped cottage in a very picturesque street. Easy walking distance to Thirsk which is a great market town with shops, pubs, takeaways and cafes. Very steep staircase which could be difficult with small children. Perfectly positioned to explore the beautiful Yorkshire dales.
