• About Kirkgate

    Set in a central position in the market town of Thirsk, this cottage is a great base for exploring both the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales.

    Step to entrance.
    Living room: With 43” Smart TV and DVD player.
    Dining room.
    Kitchen: With electric oven, electric hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher.
    Lower Ground Floor:

    First Floor:

    Bathroom: With bath, shower cubicle, toilet and heated towel rail.

    Second Floor:
    Bedroom 2: With kingsize bed and beams.

    Gas central heating, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Travel cot and highchair available on request.

    Small enclosed courtyard with garden furniture. Bike store. Parking for 1 car in pub car park; additional on road parking. No smoking.

    A stylish, contemporary terraced cottage set over three floors, there is an en-suite master bedroom, a comfortable living room, separate dining room and wonderful bar/games room in the basement, complete with an Xbox One. There is even a place to store bikes if you plan on re-enacting the Tour De Yorkshire route, or fancy mountain biking on some of the popular routes nearby.

    Kirkgate sits a short walk from the popular market town of Thirsk, which is blessed with bistros and tearooms, traditional pubs and wine bars, as well as a regular market. Thirsk has a charm of its own with its old buildings, yet it centres around a bustling cobbled market square, dominated by the town clock, with its Monday and Saturday markets and independent shopping. Perfect for enjoying many easy going walks through the town and along the river, and is also an ideal base to explore surrounding traditional Yorkshire villages. There are plenty more strenuous walks in the area, such as on the Hambleton Hills and the moorland tracks such as The Drove Road. The Swale Way long distance path passes through Thirsk, connecting Boroughbridge and Kirby Stephen.

    There is plenty to do in and around Thirsk, with regular race meetings, golf courses and mile upon mile of countryside to explore. Head out and about and discover the Cleveland Way, where you can follow the path towards Whitestone Cliff for fantastic views of Lake Gormire, and across the Vale of Mowbray to the Pennines, just visible in the distance. The mysterious Lake Gormire is tucked away in dense woodland below Sutton Bank, and is one of only two natural lakes in the county, created by meltwater at the end of the last Ice Age and accessible only on foot. No water can be seen flowing either into or out of it, keeping it at a steady level. The theory is that it’s fed by an underground spring and drained through a channel in the limestone below. The myth is that there is a hidden city at the bottom. The author James Herriot has a strong influence in the area, and the World Of James Herriot is right on your doorstep.

    There are several ancient abbeys and castles each with their own unique qualities. Just a short drive away you can experience Rievaulx Abbey’s fascinating past and the lives of the monks who called it their home. As for day trips, there are too many to mention, but the medieval walled city of York, Ripon, the third smallest city in England, and many ancient abbeys are all worth exploring. The Yorkshire Dales National Park is just to the west, and the North York Moors just to the east, with the stunning Yorkshire coast just an hour away if a trip to the seaside takes your fancy. All in all, you will never get bored, and with everything you could need at Kirkgate, you will want to return time and again. Shop and restaurant 250 yards, pub 50 yards.

    It's a nice cottage but the decor not to our taste. Better sheets and towels would be good.

    Fantastic house, very comfortable and top location. The overall presentation of the house was fantastic and the fixtures and fittings were very stylish. It was like home from home and the owner was very helpful. We will return!

    Our stay was perfect and can’t wait to return. The cottage was presented to a high standard and we could not fault it. This little place is a credit to its owners in regards to the comfort, decor and gorgeous furnishings, the attention to detail is excellent and second to none. I have already recommended the cottage to family and friends.

    On entering Kirkgate the property was warm and comfortable and I particularly enjoyed the decor. The addition of a Christmas tree was a treat and something I did not expect. It was a very nice touch by the owner and much appreciated. Perhaps slightly more crockery for four persons would be beneficial. Overall, I would thoroughly recommend Kirkgate.

    My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. We enjoyed every moment! The owners of this holiday home have poured lots of love into it: the decor, interior design & whole feel of the house is one of luxury & really well thought through. Both bedrooms were so lovely we found it hard to choose which one to sleep in! King-sized comfortable beds in both rooms, luxury bathrooms (especially the coloured lighting, roll-top bath & rain-showers), lots of space and quirky features throughout the house, kitchen well equipped. A perfect escape if you want some R&R, a romantic retreat or a girly weekend! Bubbly, beer & cupcakes left for us on arrival: the perfect welcome. I highly recommend a stay at Kirkgate!

    We stayed at this lovely house in Kirkgate, the pictures do not do it justice. The owners attention to detail is superb. Alison was very welcoming with the lovely touch of leaving cake and Prosecco. The house is right in the centre of Thirsk with everything on your doorstep. There are lots of lovely places in the surrounding area to visit, Castle Howard is a must, and York is just a 15 minute trainride from the local station. And not to mention Thirsk Races which is within walking distance. We had the best Fish and Chips from The White Horse Cafe on the square (be prepared to queue). What more can we say, we had a great time and will definitely be returning.
