Sycamore Cottage is a terraced barn conversion and was formerly the thrashing barn and grain store. It offers ’upside down’ accommodation with the bedrooms on the ground floor, and the open plan living space upstairs. 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 12 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.
