Guest Reviews

"Beautiful rural location, close enough to Ripon and Harrogate to explore. Lovely people, very welcoming and a beautiful cottage. Well worth a visit and will definitely be staying there again when we next visit Yorkshire."  Louise, Sebastian and Tobias June 2017

Around and About

The cottage is located on our family farm, The Grange, a mostly arable farm but we also keep a flock of Texel sheep and a herd of pedigree Beef Shorthorn cattle.  

Pretty nearby villages include Kilburn (3 miles) and Coxwold.  The farm is only 3.5 miles from Thirsk, and a short drive from York (22 miles), Harrogate (21 miles) and the Dales.  The nearby North York Moors National Park offers a wealth of walking, cycling and horse riding opportunities. 

Popular nearby attractions include the Mouseman Visitor Centre at Kilburn where you can find out about Yorkshire's famous White Horse hill carving. 

The World of James Herriot Museum at Thirsk, Lightwater Valley Theme Park, Monk Park Farm, Thirsk Racecourse and Outdoor Activity/ Trekking Centres are all within easy reach.
