Thirsk
Thirsk is a traditional market town, handily located between two beautiful National Parks; the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales. It is an ideal holiday cottage base for those who want to explore this picturesque region of Yorkshire.

Perhaps best known through the work of James Wight, better known as James Herriot, Thirsk is recognizable to millions as the Darrowby of All Creatures Great and Small. Today, visitors can find out more about this local author and vet at the World of James Herriot, which is based in his former house and surgery. Another of Thirsk''s claims to fame is the fact that it was the home of the founder of Lord''s Cricket Ground, Thomas Lord, and the Thirsk museum is now situated in the house in Kirkgate, where he was born.

The unspoilt countryside around Thirsk is ideal for walking, cycling and sightseeing and visitors will also enjoy the various shorter walks along the river and around the town. The market is held on Mondays and Saturdays in the cobbled market square, and there are numerous independent shops for all you might need.

Thirsk racecourse is well known for flat racing in summer and is situated on the west of the town. Another nearby attraction is the Birds of Prey Centre six miles away at Kirkby Wiske, where you can see eagles, buzzards, hawks, owls and vultures. Weather permitting, there are 3 flying displays each day, with different birds each time.

The more energetic members of the group will enjoy some of the outdoor activities available in the locality; these include horse riding and trekking, quad biking, clay shooting and off road driving, whilst others may prefer quieter pursuits. Ripon, Harrogate, York and Northallerton are all easily accessible and offer great days out.

Thirsk is a great choice for cottage break in rural Yorkshire, so search for holiday cottages in Thirsk today.
