Thirsk, North Yorkshire, England
We have recently completely renovated Duck Cottage and believe that we have created a place of beauty and elegance for those who wish to relax in peaceful surroundings. The cottage sits in a private secluded courtyard and to the rear overlooks the small river which runs through the town. The local ducks are a feature of the property and they occasionally wander into the courtyard and sit on our doorstep. Duck cottage is close by the famous cobbled market square in the centre of Thirsk, which was once the home of the novelist and vet James Herriott. The cottage is a cosy and welcoming place to stay with a new bathroom and fitted kitchen and has been fully redecorated throughout for 2014.

Duck Cottage has a brilliant location 2 minutes walk from the main town square in Thirsk. My wife and her mother had a most enjoyable 5 nights stay with shops and cafes at a very manageable distance. The cottage is nicely decorated and with good amenities. Very pleasant view over Cod Beck with lots of waddling from the local ducks....

About the neighbourhood

The town and immediate surroundings are relatively flat and suitable for gentle cycling, but the fearsome gradient of Sutton Bank is less than 6 miles to the east and there are serious challenges for both cyclists and walkers in the nearby moors and dales.
