Description

Willow Cottage is a single-storey terraced barn conversion and was formerly the cart shed. It offers open plan living accommodation all on the ground floor. The cottage has its own enclosed patio with private hot tub, BBQ and garden furniture. In the grounds, there is a play area with swings and slide for under 7 year olds who must be supervised.
Set in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, Thirley Cotes Farm is a Grade ll listed farm dating back to around 1830. However, earlier records show Thirley Cotes mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The main house is set in a courtyard setting of outbuildings, all converted into a wonderful development of holiday cottages. Original features have been retained where possible, and the original trusses bear Roman numerals carved into the wood depicting the year they were constructed. The name Thirley Cote Farm Cottages was decided on due to the stunning woodland views with endless walks and cycle tracks between Broxa Forest and Harwood Dale Forest.
There are many activities and attractions in the area to keep all the family entertained. Dalby Forest has world cup mountain bike trails, Go Ape tree adventure, and nature walks. The RSPB reserve at Bempton Cliffs is worth a visit, and is home to thousands of sea birds nesting precariously on the cliff face. Keen birdwatchers can see kittiwakes, gannets and puffins, and offshore porpoises and grey seals can be spotted.
Traditional seaside resorts can easily be reached including Whitby, famous for its fish and chips and cliff top abbey ruins, and all the fun of the fair at Scarborough with two wide sweeping beaches, amusements and cliff top castle. Also worth a visit are the quaint fishing villages of Robin Hood’s Bay, Staithes and Runswick Bay. Further inland, the medieval city of York can be reached within an hour, with its Roman city walls and towering minster. Why not take a nostalgic journey on a steam train through the North York Moors from Whitby to Pickering, calling at Goathland, made famous as Aidensfield in the TV series ‘Heartbeat’?

Organised walks, cycle days and nature tours can all be arranged locally, and there is a selection of bikes for visitors to use, subject to availability.
Beach 4 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles. Willow Cottage can be booked together with Holly Cottage (ref UK2235), Sycamore Cottage (ref UK2236), Thirley Cotes Farmhouse (ref UK2237), Oak Cottage (ref UK2238), Pear Tree Cottage (ref UK2577), Mulberry Cottage (ref UK2578) and Walnut Cottage (ref UK2579) to accommodate up to 42 guests.

About the local area

Scarborough is situated at the southern end of the North Yorkshire Heritage Coast and, together with Filey, offers beautiful beaches, coastal walks and a variety of entertainment for the whole family.

Scarborough is a town of two halves, with South Bay full of amusement arcades, fish and chip shops and donkey rides, whilst the more genteel North Bay is home to several parks and grand Victorian buildings. The whole family will want to take a trip on the miniature North Bay Railway, which will take you to Sea Life Centre and to the Historic Water Chute and Boating Lake.

Filey is a small traditional seaside town, home to an award-winning museum and a nature reserve that is a haven for wild birds. The town is situated at the eastern end of The Cleveland Way, a long- distance footpath that skirts the Yorkshire Moors and has many beautiful walks with stunning views to offer. Kids will love visiting the Alpamare waterpark for all kinds of aquatic fun, with slides, waves and much more to enjoy. 

Within easy reach is the famous Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo, which has something to offer every member of the family, from thrilling white-knuckle rides to children's entertainment. For something really out of the ordinary, pay a visit to Pesky Husky, where you can take part in a kennel tour followed by walk or even a trek with these charismatic dogs.
