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.

    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.

    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.
