  • Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park and North Yorkshire Moors National Park
  • Thirsk was home of the late vet and author, James Herriot whose life’s tales formed the novels and later inspired the famous TV series “All creatures great and small”
  • A stone’s throw from Skeldale Veterinary Centre – of Channel 5’s ‘A Yorkshire Vet’ fame
Property code: 49481

This wonderfully equipped house offers a very sociable lounge, great for family gatherings to offer a home from home and provides a great base to explore Yorkshires’ Herriot country.

Gather the family or get together with friends in this welcoming four-bedroom house that sits just half a mile from the pretty town of Thirsk. With the Yorkshire Dales to the west and the North York Moors to the east, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy the stunning countryside too.

Pull into the large drive with ample parking for two cars and leave your coats and bags in the hallway before exploring this comfortable home from home. Send the kids upstairs to take their pick from the two twin rooms and get the kettle on in the well-equipped kitchen/diner. You’ll be pleased to note both Tassimo and Nespresso machines on hand for morning coffees at the breakfast bar and plenty of workspace for prepping those hearty family dinners. The lounge has a gas fire for cosy evenings in front of the TV, and room to spread out a board game from the extensive collection. On warm summer days, throw open the French doors to the enclosed garden where mature trees and bushes provide a lovely private feel. Fire up the BBQ and enjoy a relaxed dinner alfresco with a sun canopy for a little refuge from the midday sunshine. A downstairs wet room is a great addition for larger groups and the utility room with both washing machine and tumble dryer is useful when the weather is less favourable. Up the oak staircase, the four bedrooms have a fresh, unfussy style and crisp white linens that are heaven to sink into after a long day out in the rugged Yorkshire countryside.

The house is just half a mile from the centre of Thirsk which has a good spread of pubs and restaurants as well as a handful of attractions including the popular World of James Herriot museum. Fans of Channel 5’s ‘A Yorkshire Vet’ will be pleased to spot Skeldale Veterinary Centre just 150 metres down the road. Many walks of varying length leave from Thirsk itself – take a look at the maps in the house for inspiration. It’s 7 miles to Kilburn for the family-friendly walk to the famous White Horse, as well as many longer trails on the North York Moors. Younger visitors will love a trip to Monk Park Farm, 2.5 miles from the house, and Thirsk Birds of Prey Centre, 5 miles away is also worth a visit. For thrill-seekers, Lightwater Valley theme park, 15 miles away is a great day out with something for all ages.

A spacious, comfortable and well equipped house, making a good base for visiting the area. The retractable sun shade is a great feature as the patio is a real sun trap, making the house very warm.

Excellent accomodation and location. House was very clean and tidy, lovely garden with a daily visit from the local ducks! Lots of information about the amenities in the house, plus brochures about where, and what to do in the Dales and Moors. Thirsk town centre is a 5 minute stroll away, with shops and eateries, our favorite was Bianco, which you Read moreshould go to with a big appetite, huge portions! All in all we had a lovely weeks visit, and look forward to coming back at some point. Hide

Very well equipped house with good heating system. Shame about the owners' reaction to multiple flies in the property (I tracked these down to some dirty water left in a vase) - telling renters to buy their own flyspray is not helpful! Apart from these two problems (and I have to say the Holiday Cottages people took them far more seriously than theRead more caretaker or the owner!) very pleased with everything else in the property - dishwasher tablets provided too. Busy road at front of property. Hide

This cottage is exceptionally well equipped. The location is excellent as a base for exploring North Yorkshire. Thirsk is a very pleasant little town with good services within a short walk. The garden at the rear of the property is large and well maintained.
