  • "Black sheep cottage exceeded our expectations."

    It was perfectly situated in town, but down a very quiet lane with private parking which is always a bonus. The owners have gone above and beyond with the unique touches.and decor. It has everything needed for a relaxing break. It is so warm and cosy with a very comfortable king sized bed. It was just the therapy needed for a relaxing break. Also a lovely welcome pack on arrival. Thank you.

    We're so glad you enjoyed your stay, thank you for your kind words. Property Owner

The property

Black Sheep Cottage is a delightful 19th-century cottage with a pretty brick built exterior, resting in the popular market town of Thirsk.

With tasteful décor, a cosy feel and close by amenities, this property is an ideal base for a small family or couple looking for a getaway to North Yorkshire.

Park off-road and enter through a quaint stable door into a well-fitted kitchen/diner.

This is a great space for guests to discuss the range of activities the area has to offer whilst dining together over a meal cooked in the well-stocked kitchen.

After dinner, get comfy on the stylish sofa next to the electric woodburner, put your feet up and find your favourite series on the Smart TV.

Alternatively, look through the books and games provided, to while away your evening.

Upstairs later for a bath and bed in either the king-size bedroom or single room, both with original beam ceilings.

Waking up refreshed the next morning, do not miss the internationally acclaimed World of James Herriot Museum next door, take in a film at the community-run Ritz cinema or browse the independent shops and cafes that make Thirsk such an attractive market town.

Or you could take a drive or the train to the coast, the Yorkshire Dales, or have a day out in the beautiful City of York.

You will never be without something to do with Black Sheep Cottage, the perfect base to explore from.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
