    “What an absolutely stunning cottage!”

    My sister and I have stayed in quite a few holiday cottages over the years and this one is the best ever! The cleanliness and decor was second to none and everything you needed was there. So handy for the Market Square and buses to various places. Love Thirsk as a whole, the people there are so friendly and welcoming as was the next-door neighbour, Shane. I hope, whoever stays there in the future, enjoys the cottage as much as we did! Certainly home from home!

The property

Kemps Yard Retreat is a hidden gem of a cottage, just a stone's throw away from Thirsk market square in North Yorkshire.

Located a short walk from the Herriot Museum, concealed behind the gardens of the Friends Meeting house, down a 17th-century cobbled street and with private and roadside parking, Kemps Yard is the perfect stay for those looking to be central to Thirsk while enjoying unrivalled peace.

As you arrive, make your way into the sitting room, home to contemporary furniture, a feature fireplace and a Smart TV so you can unwind after a day of exploring.

From here, the spacious kitchen/diner offers all you need to cook up a storm for your loved ones, along with dining seating for four guests to enjoy meals while planning another fun-filled day out.

Completing the ground floor is a handy cloakroom, while the full shower room can be found on the first floor.

Get some rest in one of two beautifully presented bedrooms; choose from a plush king-size, or a twin which is ideal for the children.

Warmer months can be spent in the garden with a glass of wine in-hand; the decking area hosts a bistro dining set, making dining alfresco an inviting option.

If you need a break from cooking you will find a wealth of dining options just a short walk away, from takeaways and pubs to delightful restaurants and cafés.

For a day involving local culture, make your way to Thirsk Museum, or take advantage of your location and enjoy an afternoon of racing at Thirsk Racecourse.

Head to the cathedral city of Ripon, known for its rich history and pretty architecture.

Another popular city within driving distance is the stunning city of York, known for its impressive York Minster and a variety of buildings built throughout the centuries, and not forgetting the fantastic selection of pubs and eateries.

Further afield you can enjoy a day of walking, cycling, or just simply exploring the picture-perfect North York Moors National Park.
