"We came to Crayke in the mid 1990's with our young family and we liked it so much that 22 years later we are still here! It is a lovely quiet village with a real sense of community spirit. The house, grounds and paddocks have provided us with a safe and comfortable home with plenty of space around for us to enjoy the outdoors with horses, dogs, chickens, a cat, numerous other small pets and quad bikes. Some would say we have led a charmed life. With the property being just on the edge of Crayke village you are near enough to join in with village life or far enough if you just want to enjoy the quiet life. There are some great walks, amazing cycle routes and bridleways where you can get off the beaten track to enjoy the natural beauty of the countryside, and the view from the top of Crayke Hill near the Castle is spectacular. We feel very fortunate to have lived in such a lovely setting, and will certainly miss the fabulous views".
