    “What superb accommodation!”
    the quality of the accommodation is superb. The high ceilings make for a very spacious feel. There is everything within the cottage that you could possibly want and was beautifully clean.The owners (and their pets) are very friendly and welcoming. We were even invited to watch the annual alapaca shearing (including scooping up the incredibly soft fleece into bags). Thank you for making us feel so welcome and I am sure we will be back.

Situated on the outskirts of the pretty village of Sutton-Under-Whitestonecliffe, these three properties are the result of a sympathetic conversion of old stone barns and lie within a complex of five on the owner’s livestock farm. Care has been taken with these Thirsk cottages to retain original features, including exposed timbers and walls, and these original features are complemented by modern comforts. Tastefully furnished and decorated, these Thirsk cottages provide warm and welcoming accommodation benefiting from a communal sheltered courtyard set within a peaceful environment. The local village inn is a 10 minute stroll from these North Yorkshire cottages, whilst the delightful market town of Thirsk offers a wide range of restaurants, shops and pubs skirting the historic cobbled market square. From these Thirsk cottages, there are superb walking opportunities including Sutton Bank with its exceptional panoramic views from where you may wish to watch the gliders take full advantage of the strong thermals hugging the cliffs.
