It is very well placed for transport links, there is a train station at Carlton Minniott - although it is known as Thirsk - and this is about 2 miles away; taxi's can be contacted to collect you. There are many buses leaving from the market square, and the major road systems are just a short distance away.

Thirsk Break

  • 5 of 5

Lovely hosts and a perfect unit for a stay in Thirsk. We spent 3 days there and didn'want for anything. Everything you need is provided and shopping is just a short walk to everything. We visited various towns around which were just a short drive away as well as a trip to York. We even watched some locals catch some fish in the stream behind the unit. Recommend it highly.
