Situated in the midst of some of Yorkshire's most beautiful scenery is the small picturesque village of Markington. Composed of a scattering of dwellings and farmsteads, this lovely little village also offers two pubs and a village store. Well-positioned for all of Yorkshire's splendid countryside, this wonderful settlement is within easy driving distance of the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Coast. The fantastic cathedral cities of York and Ripon are close by offering a huge range of activities and places to visit, as are a number of stately homes and other fascinating buildings, including Castle Howard, Harewood House, the Cistercian Abbeys of Fountains and the castles of Middleham, Bolton and Richmond.
From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?
