    “The house was immaculate and the furniture and artwork particularly tasteful.”

    Beds were very comfortable with quality linen as were the towels. Good immediate communication with the owners re a query we had. Superb collection of books including walking books. Good information folder.

Good information folder. The only thing we would have liked was a couple of fans as we were there for the UK's 2021 summer heat wave week!

About the property

Number 15 is a elegantly furnished Victorian terrace in the Sowerby conservation area, a stone’s throw from Thirsk’s historic market square.

Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, Number 15 is the perfect base for a family or group of six wanting to explore the best Yorkshire has to offer.

Thirsk is the gateway to the North York Moors, but it is also within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales, the beautiful cities of York and Ripon and the glorious coastline around Whitby, Filey and Scarborough.

Thirsk is a traditional Yorkshire market town, famous for being the home of James Herriot (real name Alf White) author of All Creatures Great and Small․ Alf’s home and veterinary practice is now one of two museums in the town.

There’s plenty to do on the doorstep including riverside walks, a racecourse, independent cinema, arts centre and indoor swimming pool.

Thirsk’s cobbled town square is bustling with independent shops, cafes and restaurants.

It hosts a twice-weekly market and monthly farmers’ market․ York is just a 16-minute train ride away and it’s a 10-minute drive to the spectacular views, walks and cycle ways of Sutton Bank.

Number 15 has parking on the private lane to the rear of the property, with additional roadside space at the front.

The enclosed rear garden is a stunning sun-trap with warm Yorkshire stone flags and sweet smelling flowerbeds․ There’s a large bistro table for al-fresco dining or to enjoy a chilled glass of wine.

Once inside Number 15, you’ll find a warm and inviting home bursting with traditional features.

The stylish sitting room is decorated in soft neutral tones, with two comfy sofas to curl up on with a good book․ Relax with a board game in front of the open fire or catch up on your favourite programmes as you stream your shows onto the TV.

The dining room has a log-burning stove for cosy suppers and a cupboard full of games for fun times together.

The well-equipped kitchen boasts a range cooker with double oven for dinner parties and a dishwasher to take care of the washing up․ Behind the kitchen is a utility room with washing machine and a full-sized bathroom.

Upstairs, there are three elegant bedrooms: one king-size, one double, and a twin, served by an additional convenient shower room.
