North York Moors National Park
Set in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, Thirley Cotes Farm is a Grade II Listed Farm. Dating back to circa 1830, Thirley Cotes is mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The Main house is set in a courtyard setting of out buildings, that has had the main Granary, Livestock Building and Cart Shed developed into a wonderful luxury development of 4 Properties. We have been 5* rated from 2012 since we launched, and received the 5* Platinum Award for Holly Cottage. We have decided that our guests feedback is the best accreditation to receive, and welcome your feedback following your stay with us.
The Wagon Shed at the entrance to the development has been restored, and now provides undercover parking for the properties, as well as the secure bike store, and additional fridge and freezer storage.
The buildings have maintained their original trusses, and the roman numerals scribed on each truss is still visible, as in the order they followed when initially constructed.
