Escape to this tastefully styled retreat for two, nestled in a peaceful and private estate. Markington is ideally situated for exploring all of Yorkshire's splendid countryside. Lying between Harrogate (7 miles) and Ripon (6 miles), this location is an ideal base to explore the Yorkshire Dales to the west and the North York Moors and Yorkshire Coast to the east. The village itself offers a small store and a pub. Local attractions include Fountains Abbey, Ripley Castle, Mother Shiptons Cave and the amazing rock formations of Brimham Rocks. You could explore Knaresborough Castle and Almscliffe Crag, or visit Pateley Bridge, home of England’s oldest sweet shop and the fascinating Nidderdale Museum, all within 12 miles. The fascinating, historic cathedral city of York (26 miles) promises a fun-packed day. Stroll around the castle walls and through the cobbled 'Shambles', York’s famous medieval street popular with Harry Potter fans is said to have been the inspiration for Diagon Alley.
