About the neighbourhood
Old Low Moor Farm is located in beautiful countryside over looking open fields with the Hambleton Hills in the background. It is approximately 4 miles from the picturesque market town of Thirsk, home to James Herriot and the Yorkshire Vet, and five miles from the county town of Northallerton with all its shops, cafes and restaurants, including a branch of the famous Betty's cafe. Situated just on the edge of the North York Moors National Park there is easy access onto the Moors and the sea side resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay. However the farm's central location also makes a trip into the Yorkshire Dales National Park a must for visitors. York and Harrogate are also within easy reach.
Getting around
There is no public transport in the village so a car is a necessity. However there are plenty of walks nearby and we are on a Sustrans Cycle Route.
