Nestled among gently rolling hills between York and Malton, the peaceful village of Sheriff Hutton is steeped in history, with the ruins of a 14th century castle, housing Richard III in 1483, and a medieval church with Norman tower dating from 1100, which still has enclosed pews today. The village is delightful, with a green and two pubs, both serving food, one dating back to the 1600s. The City of York is only 11 miles away, while the North York Moors Steam Railway in Pickering, and the East coast seaside towns of Bridlington, Hornsea and Scarborough, as well as Whitby and Harrogate are all within driving distance. Local activities abound and the area is excellent for walking, cycling and exploring.
