The Angel at Topcliffe, just outside Thirsk, is the perfect base for exploring everything North Yorkshire has to offer.
Harrogate, York and Ripon are all within an easy 40 minute drive, so it’s easy to take in the sights at these historic cities during the day before coming back to relax and unwind in the peace and quiet of our countryside setting. And, of course, Thirsk itself is the home of James Herriot, probably the world’s most famous vet.For those looking for adventure, the North Yorkshire Moors and Yorkshire Dales are also right on our doorstep, giving you a great opportunities to walk, cycle and horse-ride in some of Yorkshire’s most breath-taking scenery.
Our Location halfway between the A19 and A1, within easy reach of Leeds, York, Teesside and Newcastle, also makes us an ideal stop off for business travellers or those wanting to break up the long journey from London to Edinburgh.
In either case you’ll get a warm welcome from the staff at The Angel and the chance to relax as you enjoy a delicious meal from our seasonal grill menu, a glass of two of great wine and an excellent night’s sleep in one of our fifteen comfortable and stylish bedrooms (including a family room for those with younger children.) Next morning you can then start another busy day, with a hearty Yorkshire Breakfast.
For the ultimate luxurious break try our heavenly Halo Suite with a four poster bed and free standing, double ended bath.
