Description

Ideal touring base with the market towns of Thirsk, Ripon and Northallerton nearby, and easy access to the city of York.

Quietly positioned behind the owner’s home, these delightful holiday cottages are situated just 2 miles from the quaint market town of Thirsk, with its 15th-century church, original cinema and renowned racecourse. The cobbled market square hosts a twice weekly market and is surrounded by individual shops, traditional inns and tea rooms. Alf Wight, the well-known vet and author of ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ lived here and the ‘World of James Herriott’ visitor centre gives a fascinating insight into the working life of this famous vet, his subsequent books and TV series. Grove House Cottages provide a perfect base from which to explore the wider area too, with the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the west and the North Yorkshire Moors to the east. Places of interest include Sutton Bank and Castle Howard, Fountains Abbey and Aysgarth Falls. Families enjoy hours of fun at Lightwater Valley, the Forbidden Corner and Flamingo Land. The coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey are all easily accessible and regular trains and buses run to the ancient walled city of York, 25 miles. Shop 1/2 mile, pubs and restaurants 1 mile.Quietly positioned behind the owner’s home, these delightful holiday cottages are situated just 2 miles from the quaint market town of Thirsk, with its 15th-century church, original cinema and renowned racecourse.

    The location of the cottage is perfect for exploring National Trust properties and for visiting York. The cottages are located on a delightful small estate with a beautiful garden full of apple trees. Thirsk is a lovely town well worth a visit and it is large enough to have all of the amenities any holiday-maker needs but small enough to retain its charm and oldy-worldy feel. We loved the area and we would love to return again in the near future. The cottage is in beautiful grounds and the cottage itself is large enough for a family of four. What let the cottage down was the uncomfortable beds and there were some cleanliness issues. The beds really need new mattresses. The mattresses are thin and cheap and you can feel the springs. We had to put an extra duvet over the mattresses to pad them out which did help a bit. The cottage itself was clean enough, but unfortunately the cooking utensils, pots, pans and cutlery were dirty and had to be washed before using. The cooker wasn't too clean and the freezer compartment door was broken. The lady who owns the cottages is very helpful and friendly. She is a lovely lady and we felt that she really cares about her guests. Unfortunately however, we didn't sleep very well because of the mattresses. If the beds were to be given new comfortable mattresses, the cottage would really be an ideal place to stay in a really beautiful area of North Yorkshire.
