Built around the village green, this lovely village boasts an excellent local pub and good walking and cycling opportunities in the surrounding countryside. Just 7 miles away is the market town of Northallerton, offering excellent shops and a weekly market, whilst Thirsk is just 5 miles to the south, boasting a famous racecourse as well as a cobbled market square and quaint little alleyways awash with cosy teashops and lovely little delicatessens.
