Nunnington is a beautiful village in the North Yorkshire Moors, surrounded by farmland, the river rye and footpaths. As it is off the main road with little through traffic it is very quiet, making it safer for children to walk around the village.
Nunnington hall, after which the village is named, is but a short walk away and is owned by the National Trust. It is a beautiful place to visit to have a cup of coffee or light meal, enjoy the garden or play on the large garden games that exist, such as chess, croquet or connect 4.
The welcoming Royal Oak Pub, with a large log fire, serves cask ales and offers home cooked food at reasonable prices.
At the top of the hill there is the beautiful 13th Century Church of All Saints that dominates the village and is open all day to visitors.
There are many walks that are possible from Nunnington, including one to Harome, 2.5 miles away. In this village there is the beautiful Pheasant Hotel where one can sit on the terrace overlooking the village pond for a drink, afternoon tea or a meal. The village also boasts the Michelin starred pub The Star Inn that has won many awards in recent years.
For cyclists the quiet roads around the surrounding areas make for enjoyable trips, especially when combined with a stop at the numerous pubs offering good food.
The dry weather that is characteristic of the region, combined with the absence of light pollution, means that the stars are normally visible at night and satellites and shooting stars can often be seen.
