Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Bakery Cottage is a delightful recently refurbished cosy cottage, tucked away in a secluded area yet close to the heart of the centre of the market town of Thirsk. It is ideal for couples wanting to relax and we happily accommodate 2 small dogs or 1 medium dog.
Formerly a bakery and dating back to the 1870's this charming cottage has an abundance of character and provides a warm welcome to couples looking to relax and recharge their batteries.
Cod Beck is only 50 yards away with plenty of wild fowl to feed or you can enjoy a stroll along the riverside which is perfect of a summers evening. A two minute walk will bring you to the cobbled market square in the centre of Thirsk where you can enjoy the interesting inns and houses many dating back to the eighteenth century, when Thirsk was an important posting station. Thirsk's oldest inns include the Three Tuns dating back to 1698 and The Golden Fleece that is thought to date back to Tudor times.
Aswell as boasting it's own museum, Thirsk also has plenty of traditional shops and tearooms to choose from and even it's own race course if you fancy a bet.
Thirsk is the principal market town of the Hambleton Hills, forming the western part of the moors and is a haven for keen walkers and cyclists with numerous pathways and cycle tracks close by. It is an excellent centre for touring the whole of the Yorkshire Dales National Park as well as the North York Moors and Coast.
In the famous James Herriot stories created by the writer Alf Wight, Thirsk is the fictional 'Darrowby', a central location in the tales featuring the activities of a Yorkshire vet. The World of James Herriot Museum in Thirsk occupies the original surgery of Alf Wight who lived in Thirsk for more than fifty years.
The historic city of York is just ½ hour away and well worth a visit. The famous White Horse of Kilburn and Sutton Bank are situated 4 miles away.
