The pretty village of Kilburn is just a few miles from Thirlby, and is home of the Mouseman furniture. There is a showroom and visitor centre where guests can see the skill and care that goes into every single piece of this quality oak furniture that has become famous worldwide. For those guests who like to view the countryside at a more leisurely pace, a ride on the North York Moors railway by steam train is very popular. Guests can take the leisurely ride from Pickering to Grosmont whilst sitting back and enjoying the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
Just a short drive South will lead you to the historical city of York with its many attractions and meandering cobbled streets that wind their way through this magical city, sitting below the grandeur of the city’s cathedral York Minster. York enjoys a fine mixture of history and culture, and attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world who like to experience the splendour of this well preserved Roman City.
