Opposite is the dining room and adjacent to this is the breakfast kitchen.

The village is ideally located, equidistance between the thriving market towns of Thirsk and Northallerton, approximately 7 miles, both of which offer excellent everyday amenities including shopping facilities, restaurants, public houses and recreational amenities, as well as main line train stations connecting with London Kings Cross in just over 2 hours and further north to Newcastle and Edinburgh.
