The largest of all the cottages set within the Thirley Cotes Farm, Sycamore Cottage sleeps ten so is a great option for a self-catering getaway with the whole family or a great group of friends.

A classic upside down layout has the bedrooms on the ground floor of the property, with the large living space above. The cottage features an original wooden wall partitioning the living space and kitchen, as well as stunning vaulted beam ceilings, wooden floors and views out across the beautiful North Yorks countryside.

All the amenities necessary for a fantastic break are ready and waiting for you at Sycamore Cottage. The fully equipped kitchen is large and spacious and two of the bedrooms feature en-suites as well as an additional family bathroom with both bath and shower cubicle.

Fabulous house in a lovely quiet location. The cottage is well equipped for a family or large group holiday. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, we had a lovely time and would recommend this property to others.


The whole of the fisher family, aged from 5 weeks to 69 years, descended on Sycamore Cottage for a rare opportunity to spend quality time together. The cottage was a brilliant venue for this. We loved the accommodation, it was clean, beautifully furnished and well equipped. The garden, play area, and games room were particularly enjoyed by our grandchildren. We thoroughly recommend this property, we would give it a top ranking on Trip Advisor .
