This cosy cottage is perfectly placed to explore the North York Moors, Yorkshire Dales and the Yorkshire Coast.
Overlooking the green and adjacent to the footpath leading to the river, this cosy cottage is situated in an ideal location for enjoying the delightful market town of Thirsk. Guests are assured a comfortable holiday in this carefully presented end-terraced cottage. A short walk leads to the cobbled market square, surrounded by quaint tea rooms, independent shops, and home to a twice weekly market. James Herriot, local vet and author, was born here and his house and surgery have been converted into an award-winning museum where visitors can learn of the life he wrote about in ‘All Creatures Great and Small’.
Thirsk is superbly positioned midway between the North Yorkshire Moors and the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, where days out can be spent exploring the numerous walking and cycling trails, the picturesque villages and the welcoming country inns serving local ales and hearty meals. The medieval city of York and the elegant spa town of Harrogate are within a 40 minute drive, and the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey are easily accessible. Visit historic houses at Beningbrough and Castle Howard, and explore the monastery ruins at Fountains Abbey and Rievaulx. Family fun can be found at Lightwater Valley, Flamingo Land and Brimham Rocks. There is horse racing throughout the summer in Thirsk, York and Ripon. Shop 200 yards, pub and restaurant 150 yards.
