    “Stayed at Grove Cottage for a long weekend, arrived early evening on the Friday, lovely welcome package waiting for us meant we could have a cup of tea after we had unpacked the car we met Jeremy the owner the next morning very friendly ask if everything was ok and did we need anything.”

    Cottage was spotless and very well maintained. would definitely return if visiting the area again. our dog had a fabulous time.

The property

Thirsk 3 miles.

An exceptional, detached cottage, in the small hamlet of Skipton-on-Swale, three miles from the pretty market town of Thirsk.

Originally an old coach house, this cottage has been tastefully renovated with superb attention to detail to provide outstanding, first-class accommodation, ideal for couples.

Exuding charm and character throughout, this delightful cottage offers a warming woodburner in a feature fireplace, exposed timbers in the bedroom and a stylish, contemporary kitchen with a rustic terracotta floor.

A modern, spacious en-suite bathroom complements the sumptuous and spacious bedroom, with room for a cot.

Outside there is a patio with seating providing a tranquil spot to relax.

The historic town of Thirsk has a wide range of amenities with a cobbled market square, excellent pubs and eateries, small country racecourse and the renowned James Herriot museum - not to be missed.

The location of this cottage is ideally suited for exploring the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors and the historic city of York.

Newby Hall and Fountains Abbey near Ripon are well worth visiting, and the elegant spa town of Harrogate is within easy access.

A perfect cottage for a romantic and relaxing break!
