Felixkirk is a beautiful North Yorkshire village nestled in the hills on the outskirts of Thirsk, overlooking the Vale of York.

With many public footpaths and bridleways surrounding the village, it is an idyllic place to enjoy country pursuits followed by a delicious meal and drink at The Carpenters.

Felixkirk is located 4 miles northeast of the market town of Thirsk in the heart of Herriot countryside. Easily accessible from the A1 yet on the edge of the Hambleton Hills overlooking the Vale of Mowbray, in the shadow of the White Horse, the village has a rich historical legacy dating back to the Knights Hospitallers of St John of Jerusalem. The Church of St. Felix has parts that date from before 1175. Felixkirk offers to both locals and villagers a truly Yorkshire village experience.
