A very pleasant small 2 bedroom cottage close to the market square but tucked away in a small quiet mews with views over the river. Nicely furnished and decorated, uncluttered but with everything we needed. Recommended – we would stay again, but have moved to nearby York so don't need to. Thirsk is a typical Yorkshire market town with lots of facilities and amenities. Plenty of tearooms and restaurants if you don't want to self-cater. Excellent Olivia's bakery less than 2 minutes away selling fantastic breads and a good cafe menu. Helpful owner, no hassles with the booking.
This lovely cottage has it all. A great location, style, charm and that essential cosiness that allows complete relaxation. It's fully equipped and the owners have covered all the important bases - including parking. We loved it.
A well presented and comfortable cottage set in a delightful setting overlooking the river with local amenities nearby, as detailed in the other reviews. We will definitely book again for future visits to this area. A minor observation, wifi would be appreciated.
Had a wonderful week at this beautifully presented cottage,must mention the fantastic shower! Idyllic location,lovely market town and surrounding area.Loved it and would highly recommend this cottage,thanks to Amanda for all her help!

Just home from a terrific break at Duck Cottage . It is really lovely cottage clean , well appointed and in a perfect location . The market place is a stones throw away with everything needed for a self catering holiday . Thirsk is the perfect spot for exploring North Yorkshire and only 18 minutes by train to York ( much easier than driving and parking ) . We even had a night at the races and had a great time . One tiny point is there is no Wi-Fi or radio . We took our iPod / iPhone and Bluetooth speaker but as there was no wi-Fi or even a 3G signal we had no means of using this . There are radio stations on the TV . Overall , fantastic accommodation , great attention to detail ( coordinating decor and soft furnishings) and spotlessly clean . I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for first class accommodation in a lovely little market town . We hope to return next June
