Our self-catering cottages offer a great all-season location for your holiday, family get-together or wedding accommodation. We have six spacious three-bedroomed cottages set in peaceful parkland with fabulous views over the hills and vales of North Yorkshire.

We are just a few minutes’ drive from the delightful market town of Thirsk and its racecourse, and the Hambleton Hills Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty. Also with easy reach are the North York Moors, North Yorkshire and Cleveland Heritage Coast and the fabulous city of York - so much to do and see in this wonderful part of the country!

We can accommodate up to 36 adults plus 4 infants – perfect for family and friends gatherings and wedding accommodation. The cottages are well-equipped, comfortably furnished and immaculately presented for your arrival.

Four cottages Rievaulx, Rosedale, Fountains and Jervaulx are single storey. The two others Bluebell and Honeysuckle are two storey but each has one downstairs bedroom and shower room for easier access. Please tell us your preference when booking.


The cottages are arranged around attractive shrub borders, and each cottage has its own private patio and picnic bench just outside the door. In front of the cottages is a spacious grassy play area, climbing frame and putting green (seasonal). Adjacent to the cottages is our laundry facility which is available for your use during your stay. The peacocks are an attractive and interesting feature at Thirkleby Hall cottages!


Each of our four single storey cottages has a large lounge/dining room, fully fitted kitchen, double bedroom (king bed) with ensuite bathroom, two twin bedded rooms and a house bathroom. The plan below shows the internal layout of Rievaulx, Fountains and Jervaulx cottages.

In Fountains cottage, Bedroom 2 and Bedroom 3 are on the opposite side to that shown on the plan. Fountains also has a large cot in the double bedroom which isn’t shown on the plan. Rievaulx and Jervaulx can take a large travel cot in any of the bedrooms.

The plan below shows the internal layout of Rosedale cottage, which is slightly different as Rosedale is in a corner location, though equally as spacious as all the cottages.

DOUBLE STOREY COTTAGES - Bluebell and Honeysuckle

In Bluebell and Honeysuckle, our double storey cottages, the double bedroom is downstairs and has an ensuite shower room. The ground floor location and walk-in shower of this suite makes it suitable for persons with particular mobility requirements.

Upstairs are the two twin bedded rooms – these are particularly spacious – and the house bathroom. In each double storey cottage there is a large cot in Bedroom 3 (again, not shown on the plan).


Our prices are fully inclusive of all heating and electricity, bedlinen and towels (beds made up for your arrival) Wifi and use of our on-site laundry facility. Cots and high chairs are available free of charge. For the safety and comfort of all our guests, smoking is not allowed inside the cottages.
