Formerly a bakery and dating back to the 1870’s this charming cottage has an abundance of character and provides a warm welcome to couples looking to relax and recharge their batteries.

The space
The historic city of York is just ½ hour away and well worth a visit. The famous White Horse of Kilburn and Sutton Bank are situated 4 miles away.
It’s well worth a visit to the local Tourist Information Centre on arrival, as they are more than happy to help you choose places to visit. You really will be spoiled for choice.
Bakery Cottage was originally part of the local bakery that belonged to the Rymer family.
—The mill which was situated nearby, (it is now the walled garden area) was active in grinding cereals into flour and for producing cattle feed for local farmers for many years.
—Originally the Mill was water powered using the ‘undershot’ method – the ‘undershot’ wheel is probably the oldest type of waterwheel having been developed over two thousand years ago.
—The bread was sold in the end double fronted shop that faces Millgate.
—The cod beck runs along side the cottage which merges into the Swale. It originates in the Hambleton Hills above Osmotherly, flows into the Cod Beck reservoir, running parallel along side the A19. Osmotherly is a beautiful little village and ‘The Sheep Wash’ is a super place to take your dog for a walk and have a picnic by the reservoir and woods.Aswell as boasting it’s own museum (free admission) and The James Herriot Museum, Thirsk also has plenty of traditional shops and tearooms to choose from and even it’s own race course if you fancy a bet.
Thirsk is the principal market town (markets held on Saturdays and Mondays) of the Hambleton Hills, forming the western part of the moors and is a haven for keen walkers and cyclists with numerous pathways and cycle tracks close by. It is an excellent centre for touring the whole of the Yorkshire Dales National Park as well as the North York Moors and Coast.
In the famous James Herriot stories created by the writer Alf Wight, Thirsk is the fictional ‘Darrowby’, a central location in the tales featuring the activities of a Yorkshire vet. The World of James Herriot Museum in Thirsk occupies the original surgery of Alf Wight who lived in Thirsk for more than fifty years.
