Harome is a charming small village on the edge of the North York Moors only 2 miles south of the popular market town of Helmsley. It is in the heart of agricultural farmland and is lovely to stroll around, or to take longer countryside circular walks around the area. There are beautiful old thatched cottages, an old church, a pretty duck pond and two excellent restaurants and pubs.
It is a great location to be based to enjoy the delights of the Helmsley, North York Moors and only 24 miles north of the spectacular City of York.
