Bishop Monkton is a picturesque welcoming village conveniently close to the cosmopolitan spa town of Harrogate with a pretty beck threading its way through. Two pubs serve home-made food, there are two churches and play group facilities, pre-school, a primary school and numerous clubs such as a drama group, book club and history societies, cricket, croquet and bridge.
The village is exceptionally well connected; the magnificent cathedral city of Ripon is a mere 3 miles to the north while the characterful market town of Knaresborough and the majestic spa town of Harrogate are just 10 miles to the south. Families choosing a home at Harvest View are within the catchment area for both Ripon and Harrogate Grammar Schools.
The A1 is approximately 5 miles to the east for fast travel north and south and in less than an hour you can be in Leeds or York. It is midway between the glorious North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Parks and close to the World Heritage site of Fountains Abbey and nearby Relais & Château Grantley Hall.
