  • “A lovely cottage in a quiet village with a great pub close by.”

    The Dower house was ideal for us as two couples with both bedrooms having en-suite. I would definitely book again if looking in the area.

The property

Carthorpe 2 miles, Nosterfield 3 miles.

A stylish cottage situated overlooking the village green in Kirklington, a quiet and un-spoilt village within this pretty part of North Yorkshire.

Well-furnished to provide comfortable accommodation, this cottage ideal for a small group of friends or family wanting to experience the sublime Yorkshire countryside.

The cottage is positioned mid-way between the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks, making it an ideal base to explore both.

Upon entering the cottage you walk through a spacious hall into a contemporary open plan kitchen area with well-equipped kitchen units providing you with all the amenities you need to serve meals in the dining area, or on warmer evenings you can open the French doors and enjoy a meal on the patio.

The sitting room lies beyond with a steam effect wood burning stove and a smart TV.

There is also a W/C on the ground floor, just off the hall.

The first floor of the cottage offers two double bedrooms.

The main bedroom has a king-size bed with a modern en-suite bathroom.

The second bedroom is a twin room (which can be combined into a king size bed upon request) which also has an en-suite shower room.

To the front of the cottage is a private parking area and to the rear is a delightful patio area within a private garden, where you can sit back with a refreshing drink after a day exploring.

The pretty village of Kirklington has a charming pub, The Black Horse, which is only 100m around the corner from the cottage and has excellent local ales and home cooked food.

Nearby is the town of Bedale, with a fantastic range of shops, restaurant and cafes.

Also, the charming market town of Masham is close by as well as the city of Ripon with its cobbled streets and famous cathedral.

About the location


Bedale 6 miles; Masham 7 miles; Thirsk Railway Station 9 miles.

The pretty village of Kirklington lies east of Masham and south of Bedale, mid-way between Yorkshire’s two famous National Parks, the Dales and the Moors. There are some pretty walks from the cottage, around the rolling arable fields that surround the village. Kirklington is a well laid out village with a huge village green surrounded by lovely older houses as well as a church and village pub. Across the fields (1/2 mile) is Camp Hill Adventure Park, and within easy reach is the historic, market town of Masham, which is situated on the River Ure. Set in gently rolling farmland, the town boasts a huge market square, where a Wednesday market has recently been joined by a popular Saturday market. Masham boasts a range of crafts, galleries, shops, restaurants and pubs, and is the home to the Black Sheep Brewery, which now brews 11 million pints of beer a year! The cathedral city of Ripon is a short drive away. West Tanfield with its two competing pubs is about a 10 minute drive - one has been voted the best beer garden in the UK, overlooking the River Ure. Gardeners will enjoy the Thorp Perrow Arboretum and the gardens at Constable Burton, and don't miss the weird and wonderful "Forbidden Corner" near Middleham! Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Gardens (a World Heritage Site) is about a 20 minute drive and you can enjoy one of the largest and best preserved monasteries in England or walk the seven bridges walk – a must. Ideally placed for exploring all of the famous Dales of the Yorkshire Dales National Park or the North York Moors National Park. The city of York is less than an hour away and Harrogate is about 40 minutes’ drive.
