English Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Situated near the Howardian Hills, this cottage is the perfect base to explore the diversity of the whole of North Yorkshire.

Steeped in history, Birdforth Hall Cottages are the perfect base from which to explore the diversity of North Yorkshire, with the dales, moors, coast and the city of York all within easy reach. The properties benefit from shared use of superb leisure facilities with an indoor heated swimming pool, fitness room and an additional area in which to sit and relax, and both are perfect for family celebrations, special occasions and reunions.
Historic York, 16 miles, has a wealth of attractions, with its iconic minster, Jorvik Centre, museums, art galleries, shops, bars and restaurants. The magnificent 18th-century house at Castle Howard, NT Beningbrough Hall and the World Heritage site of Fountains Abbey provide excellent days out. The World of James Herriot can be found in Thirsk and the theme parks at Flamingo Land and Lightwater Valley provide fun for all the family. Visit the quaint market towns of Easingwold and Helmsley; enjoy walking and cycling trails in the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and experience generous Yorkshire hospitality in numerous traditional inns, with award-winning real ales, and tea shops. The elegant spa town of Harrogate, 26 miles, with renowned Harlow Carr Gardens and the cathedral city of Ripon, 17 miles, are not be missed, or perhaps spend a day at the races in York, Thirsk or Ripon. Shop 4 miles, pub 2 miles.

The Mill House (ref ISU) is one of a small group of cottages in a delightful courtyard setting which stands under the shadow of the famous White Horse on the Howardian Hills. Converted from farm buildings that once served the hall, and dating back to 1685, they retain much original character, with a wealth of exposed beams and stonework. The cottage also comes equipped with a fine kitchen fitted with AEG appliances, wonderful bathroom (wth state-of-the-art walk-in showers), leather sofas and large televisions.

    booked for a family holiday. Good living space and kitchen equipment. Would have liked a DVD in the kitchen/living room. The wifi strength was quite weak but overall the holiday was a success and we enjoyed staying there. York was a great place to visit and there are plenty of shopping retail parks and places to visit. We enjoyed using the swimming pool and the shared rota worked well.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Although the cookers were challenging. One grill worked, the hot plates on one cooker kept switching off when we were cooking. Bearing in mind there was 18 of us we could have done with both cookers. We had a two year old with us who enjoyed going up and down the stairs, we were disappointed there were no gates. Included in the booking was a cot and a highchair this tells there was a very young one with us.

    A beautiful house, sympathetically converted to modern day expectations, which was slightly marred by poor quality furniture in bedrooms, eg some chests of drawers not robust enough, and consequently difficult to use. In some rooms, a light near a dressing table mirror would have been helpful. But these are minor problems in the light of the whole set up. Swimming pool was a great asset, much enjoyed by whole family.

    Loved the property. Very clean on arrival. Bathrooms high quality. Kitchen ovens and hobs needed to be bigger for such a large group. Ovens somewhat temperamental and perhaps towards the end of useful life. Caretaker service A1. Outside area would benefit from a grassed area too (instead of all gravel) to give younger children an outside play space.

    Me and 13 of my friends stayed at The Mill House at the beginning of August and had a fantastic time. All 9 bedrooms are clean and comfortable, the large living room has plenty of seating, kitchens are fully stocked and equipment easy to use. The nearest supermarkets are about 4 miles away in Thirsk which is a lovely little place. The pool is great, there is a pool rota for other guest houses on the complex but this didn't cause any issues. I would definitely visit again. If you like the seaside I recommend Whitby! It's over an hour away but a beautiful place.

    Our stay was generally very good, Although was slightly disappointed With the walls in the room I stayed in as there were quite a lot of scuff marks and stains on the walls giving it a bit of a grubby appearance but this didn't affect our stay. If you are going to the cottage to celebrate don't forget to take some champagne flutes and even some extra wine glasses as they there is short supply.
