Sproxton Hall Cottages are converted from 18th-century stone farm buildings and Kirkdale Cottage is one of four characterful and charming cottages which are quietly situated in the delightful village of Sproxton. Sympathetically restored, this cottage retains its timbered ceilings and exposed stonework. Kirkdale Cottage is presented with great care to ensure visitors enjoy a cosy and comfortable stay. The front of the property benefits from its own sitting-out area with stunning views across the Howardian Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), and Sproxton itself sits astride both those and the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. With numerous walking trails on the doorstep and an enclosed paddock, especially for dogs, not to mention the dog shower and a supply of dog towels for our four-legged friends, you are ensured a waggy welcome from this holiday home.

The National Centre for Birds of Prey is within the grounds of the stately home, Duncombe Park and during the summer months there is an open air swimming pool which the whole family can enjoy.
