Perfectly located for Exploying the Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire Moors and York city. In the vale of Mowbray. Close to James Herriott Museum. Short drive to York, Harrogate and the Yorkshire Coastline.

The Yorkshire Dales has outstanding scenery, a diversity of wildlife habitats, a rich cultural heritage and peacefulness. In 1954, 1769 square kilometres was designated a national park in recognition of these most important qualities.

The Yorkshire Dales is worth a visit at any time of year - try a snug country pub with an open fire in the winter months, a luxury hotel for a spring break, a cottage for a summer base, or a bed and breakfast for an autumn weekend. Wherever you go or stay you will find a fascinating landscape and many things to see and do.


James Herriott Museum, Thirsk Race Course, Market, Leisure centre, Cinema, Supermarket, and lots more.

Thirsk is set in the centre of "Herriot Country" Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the west and the North York Moors National Park to the east. The town clock dominates the market square and many shops retain their original frontages.

The Cod Beck River flows through the town and there are lots of ducks to feed by the water's edge. The racecourse holds several race meetings each year.
