About this property

Complimentary Welcome Hamper

A complimentary welcome hamper will be awaiting you on your arrival containing milk, tea, fresh coffee, bread, butter, eggs, juice, wine and cheese, along with other essential items to prepare a light snack or breakfast. There may be some regional variations.

This recent barn conversion is now a comfortable and spacious cottage perfect for couples and families with young children. The property is set within the owner’s peaceful small-holding which is home to their dogs, chickens and sheep. Your stay here will be a tranquil break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Enjoy uninterrupted views across open countryside from the first floor sun terrace which opens out from the master bedroom. The cottage interior has been thoughtfully finished to a high standard which prioritises space for guests to relax in a comfortable, light and airy home away from home.
Keeper’s Lodge is conveniently located a short five minute drive from the popular market town of Thirsk. Its cobbled market place which hosts bi-weekly markets and the many independent shops make it a popular visitor destination. Lying in the Vale of York, Thirsk is midway between the Nork York Moors and Yorkshire Dales making it the ideal location for keen walkers. Alternatively there are plenty of shorter walks around the Thirsk area for those looking for walks at a gentler pace. Travel to the nearby towns of Harrogate, Ripon and North Allerton in less than 30 minutes’ drive. At each of these traditional North Yorkshire towns you will find a variety of fascinating independent shops, restaurants, tea shops, museums and galleries. Visiting the medieval walled city of York is an absolute must for anyone fascinated by history. York first came to prominence in Roman times and since then has continued to be an important place of historical and cultural relevance. It is overflowing with stunning architecture, including the iconic York minister, and many exciting attractions to visit.

      Great place to stay. A little difficult to get hold of the owner to arrange pick up of the keys as she had a particularly busy week at home. Would stay again.

      home from home. absolutely gorgeous. just needs some drawers in the single bedroom and maybe a coffee table or some small end tables for drinks, maybe a side light for softer mood lighting as over head lights give me a headache. luxury 5*. truly loved it. the drive in is poor though and needs a sign.

      Didn't really see the housekeeper so felt it lacked the personal touch and the garden was not checked as dog poo was left by previous occupier.Other than that excellent, clean and spacious accommodation in a beautiful rural location. So close to 5 stars!
