    Quietly nestling in the picturesque village of Great Thirkleby, The Old Post Office offers truly delightful holiday accommodation which enjoys the warmth and comfort of an open fire in the lounge, a spacious kitchen complete with Rangemaster Cooker and a dining room, all with wonderful views. Dating back to the 1780’s, The Old Post Office retains much of its charm and character with an abundance of exposed beams and antique furnishings. On the ground floor, a single bedroom and en suite is available for those not wishing to negotiate the stairs, along with a utility room which is perfect for the storage of boots and coats etc. A  pretty garden with lawn and borders of flowers and shrubs sits to the front of the cottage with a further lawn and seating area to the rear, complete with barbecue - perfect for the summer months.
    Great Thirkleby is a very peaceful village with no through traffic and is approximately 4 miles from the centre of the bustling market town of Thirsk, well known for its Herriot connections. For racing enthusiasts, the area is surrounded by courses at Thirsk, Catterick, Ripon and York, golf courses at Thirsk and Easingwold and various fishing lakes at nearby venues.
    The Old Post Office is centrally placed for exploring with the Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire Moors and Coast all easily accessible and worthy of a day outing. An abundance of footpath walks lead direct from the door into the neighbouring villages of Bagby, Carlton Husthwaite and Coxwold and on a clear winter’s day "The White Horse of Kilburn" can be seen from the cottage.
