Pet-friendly holidays and accommodation in Thirsk
A true gem of North Yorkshire, the market town of Thirsk is typically traditional with its busy cobbled market square, town clock and weekly markets. Perfectly situated between the brooding North York Moors and the glorious Yorkshire Dales, you are well-placed for lots of brisk walks where dogs can run for miles without seeing another person. If your canine is more of a city slicker, find their smartest collar and lead and take them to the medieval city of York, the elegant spa town of Harrogate or the unspoilt cathedral city of Ripon.
Nearer to home, take them on a gentle stroll through the town or along the river, or up to the Hambleton Hills if you have a canine who needs to run off lots of energy. They will be thrilled to learn that Thirsk was also home to James Herriot, the local vet who wrote ‘All Creatures Great and Small’, though they will be equally understanding that only assistance dogs are allowed into what was the actual surgery itself. Instead, take them for a far more pleasant biscuit and bowl of water at one of the dog-friendly cafés – they are on holiday after all.
