About the location
York 12 miles.
North Duffield and Skipwith are pretty Yorkshire villages just 12 miles south of York. With a range of traditional red brick and modern houses, each village has a lovely village green and pond and a 'local' pub. Skipwith has a church, which dates back to the Anglo Saxon times, whilst North Duffield has a 19th Century Methodist church. This is a sleepy, relaxing area, ideal for getting away from all the stresses and strains of modern life. Locally, a 1000-acre nature reserve dominates the landscape, along with Skipwith Common, ideal for keen birdwatchers. Seven miles west is the market town of Selby with its beautiful abbey, and just a short drive to the north is the city of York; from the famous Minster to the medieval walls, the city is teeming with historical sites of interest. Explore York's quaint streets and hidden corners or take an excursion further afield - the Yorkshire Dales, Yorkshire Moors or the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Bridlington, Whitby and Filey are all within easy reach.
