Local Life in Sheriff Hutton
Situated on the edge of The Howardian Hills, Sheriff Hutton is a quintessential Yorkshire village offering idyllic living where neighbours are warm and welcoming and there is always something happening on the doorstep.
Steeped in history, the 14th Century castle built by John Neville later became home to the infamous Richard III. Today the spectacular ruins are the focal point of the village.
A hop skip and a jump away the Highwayman Inn where you will be greeted with a warm welcome, fine food, great beers and wine. Likewise, the Castle Inn is well worth a visit.
Quarmbys deli is at the heart of the village, I can highly recommend the latte and the food is fantastic.
The village also offers a village store, post office and a wine shop! There is a highly regarded Primary School. The village hall hosts numerous clubs and activities, including preschool toddle group, badminton, bowls and other sporting activities. There are also good links to all local secondary schools.
Sheriff Hutton has excellent transport links, close to the A64 as well as the A19 between York and Thirsk. There is a regular bus service going to York city centre and Monks Cross. Strensall is 4 miles away where there are many amenities, Tesco Extra, Chemist, Butchers and many more. For those wanting superstores, Monks Cross is close by.
Sheriff Hutton is surrounded by beautiful countryside but close to the city, the best of both worlds. We think it is a pretty great place to live
