Meet the Neighbors

Virtually equidistant from Ripon and Thirsk, Rainton has not one but two of North Yorkshire’s finest market towns on its doorstep. Five miles to the south and sat on the banks of the River Ure is the city of Ripon. Centered around its historical marketplace, Ripon offers a variety of retail and leisure choices. Those looking for culture and history can spend time in the Cathedral, Courthouse and Workhouse Museums or experience the spectacle of the Hornblower’s evening ceremony. If looking to simply unwind then try the recently developed Curzon Cinema which shows an eclectic mix of mainstream and independent films. To the north is Thirsk made famous the world over by the books, films and television series based on the life and work of vet James Herriot. Perhaps less well known is its status as the birthplace of Thomas Lord founder of Lords, the home of cricket. Hosting twice-weekly markets, the market square remains the focus of the town. Here you will find a broad range of national and local retailers catering for every need.

Across Ripon and Thirsk there is a full offering of sports clubs including cricket, golf, hockey, football, rugby, and tennis. Each also has a “garden” racecourse with full calendars catering for the serious enthusiast and family group. Slightly further afield is the Spa Town Harrogate. Renowned for its Victorian architecture and open spaces, Harrogate has grown into one of Yorkshires strongest retail and leisure centres. All the major high street brands can be found in the main shopping area whilst a stroll through the Montpellier Quarter will reveal a range of specialist and boutique stores. Harrogate hosts a range of national events including the Autumn and Spring Flower Shows, International Festival and Great Yorkshire Show.   All of this is set amongst North Yorkshires stunning countryside. Those seeking the outdoors really are spoilt for choice with some of the country’s most breathtaking scenery on the doorstep. On the outskirts of Ripon sits the World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal. Owned and managed by the National Trust, “Fountains” offers everything for a family day out from ancient ruins, stunning water gardens and landscaped walks to the chance to see a variety of wildlife up close in the deer park. 


Leave Ripon and once beyond the SSSI of Brimham Rocks you enter Nidderdale. With its patchwork of rolling meadows, woods and heather moorland Nidderdale lives up to its status as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Alternatively, travel via Thirsk and head into the North York Moors a National Park stretching all the way to the coast. On the way, call in and visit one of the many unique attractions perhaps the White Horse etched into the hillside above Kilburn and watch the gliders as they take off directly overhead. Numerous country houses in the area open their grounds to the public including nearby Newby Hall. Newby has a full calendar of events including historic vehicle rally’s, annual fireworks championship and the local agricultural show.
