About the location
Thirsk 3 miles; York 20 miles.
The charming village of Bagby is a small village just three miles from Thirsk, nestling between the Hambleton Hills to the east and the Yorkshire Dales to the west. Consisting of a few farm dwellings and traditional houses, peaceful Bagby boasts a variety of splendid walks, great cycle paths, good local fishing, fantastic bird watching opportunities and of course, a great local pub! Nearby Bagby Airfield offers microlight flights, and the visitor centre at Monk Park Farm is a great day out for the kids. Just three miles away, the town of Thirsk offers something for all tastes. The famous racecourse, which holds over a dozen events each year, and the cobbled streets and quaint little alleyways are awash with cosy teashops and lovely little delicatessens. Better known to many as James Herriot's town, Alf Wight, the "real" James Herriot and author of the James Herriot novels, lived and practised as a vet here for over 50 years, with Thirsk becoming his inspiration for the fictional town of Darrowby. With the historic cathedral cities of York and Ripon also close by, and the coastal resorts of Whitby and Scarborough within easy reach, this great area has something for everyone.
