Property Description

Steeped in history, Birdforth Hall Cottages are the perfect base from which to explore the diversity of North Yorkshire, with the dales, moors, coast and the city of York all within easy reach. The properties benefit from shared use of superb leisure facilities with an indoor heated swimming pool, fitness room and an additional area in which to sit and relax, and both are perfect for family celebrations, special occasions and reunions.
Historic York, 16 miles, has a wealth of attractions, with its iconic minster, Jorvik Centre, museums, art galleries, shops, bars and restaurants. The magnificent 18th-century house at Castle Howard, NT Beningbrough Hall and the World Heritage site of Fountains Abbey provide excellent days out. The World of James Herriot can be found in Thirsk and the theme parks at Flamingo Land and Lightwater Valley provide fun for all the family. Visit the quaint market towns of Easingwold and Helmsley; enjoy walking and cycling trails in the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and experience generous Yorkshire hospitality in numerous traditional inns, with award-winning real ales, and tea shops. The elegant spa town of Harrogate, 26 miles, with renowned Harlow Carr Gardens and the cathedral city of Ripon, 17 miles, are not be missed, or perhaps spend a day at the races in York, Thirsk or Ripon. Shop 4 miles, pub 2 miles.

  9. Really lovely quiet place to have holiday with all the family. Myself, five children and their families.They loved the pool and the outdoor space we used for children’s party games. Good cooking facilities once you have got used to the digital hobs! Lots of places to visit and really enjoyed by all ages 2 months to 60 years. Aug 2011.
  10. Lovely fresh flowers on arrival. Lots of bathrooms, mostly ensuite which was great. Living space was really good as we had children of different ages so could spread out. Great dinning area where we could all eat together. However, bed quite uncomfortable and springs were noisy and just walking normally in upstairs bedroom could be heard in the bedroom below. But overall good. Geoff was great and nothing was too much trouble. Aug 2011.
